A milestone

Last week was a great milestone for our friend M. She has reached an age when she could already retire and take care of herself and her Dad.

She celebrated her birthday in Chinatown with her family and many close friends.

I wish you all the best in retirement M. I hope you get to do whatever fancies you. After family, have no more excuses, enjoy life as it comes.

    Yes and more. There were some I couldn’t take a photo of because the Lazy Susan was busy being spun around. LOL Yes, she doesn’t have to worry about getting out of bed early most of all.

    It was. We were in two adjoining tables of 10 each – so we were quite a crowd.
