Birthday busy-ness

So much stuff has been going on, I went to see this wonderful little 10 year old boy play at the Wanch about a week and a half ago. His name is Yuto Miyazawa and he's from Japan, he's made the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest professional guitar player in the world. He got to play with Les Paul and Ozzy Osbourne among other great musicians. It was absolutely amazing to see him play and sing and he really truly is a prodigy. Plus he has the coolest guitar ever!!! If I played the guitar I would want to have this one.

In other news I went to a pub quiz night on my birthday on Tuesday and did not come in last but also Tessa and I decided that we will be quiz masters and have our own quiz night!! So we are half way through making that but not sure when Kila will want us to do it yet. After the quiz we went to a little place called the Buddha Lounge which is very tiny but very cozy and cute! The decor was very Thai and all the people that work there were really nice. 

On Sunday I went out with a travelbuddy from Italy and met some lovely Greek people as well. So now I will have somebody to teach me Greek and practice with. And one of them actually found his way through Hong Kong to come to my birthday party last night and got me some very cute little presents that I totally love! I also learned that South Africans and Greeks love the fat from meat when we went out for a late night dinner and my meal was practically all fat so they joyously ate it all up for me. lol!

On Thursday I went out for the pub crawl in Hong Kong and some of my co workers from Macmillan came with me. The night was fun and a lot of tourists came out for the night. There were a lot of Americans and British another Canadian like me, some Aussies and some Austrians. I think there were other countries represented but I can't remember where from. 

Which brings me to Saturday night...my birthday parteeee!!!! It was a James Bond theme and despite the amazing and fun idea very few people dressed up but a lot of people made the trip out to my house which was nice. I dressed up as Fatima Blush from Never Say Never Again, Danny dressed up as Baron Samedi from Live and Let Die, my Mom dressed up as M from a whole bunch of James Bond movies (the Judi Dench version), Aileen was Moneypenny from a whole bunch of James Bond movies, Sophie was Jill Masterson from Goldfinger, and John was Sheriff J W Pepper from Live and Let Die and The Man With The Golden Gun. Everyone brought lots of good food and drinks and I got some beautiful gifts. I got this fantastic ring and 2 scarves, some wine and chocolates, some Lily of the Valley bath stuff from Crabtree and Evelyn, a bulldog bank, a little music box that plays When you Wish upon a star, and a book. The house was a little packed but everyone had a lot of fun and it was very kind of everyone to come and pack themselves in here. So now here I am on Sunday morning/ afternoon writing this blog and I will post pictures as soon as I get some.
