Mama's Birthday

Happy birthday to you..

Happy birthday to Mama..
Happy birthday to youuuuuuuuuuu....

Mama turned 45 this year. Young enough to have 2 working kids. Well we did nothing much but some shopping in the evening. Some time for her to select her own birthday present from Papa. After Tag Heuer to Dior to Ferragamo and Coach, she settled down for a classic Longines watch. Papa must have paid a fortune!

As for me, this time we, my siblings and i, didnt buy her handbags, purses or perfumes. We got her a makeup set from Bobbi Brown. A nice 3 tone eyeshadow and blusher palette and a Tea Rose lipstick which left us paying beyond our budget. Whatevs.

It took me 30minutes to try most of the colours there. Believe me, when it comes to buying makeup, choosing colours can be tough eventhough they more or less look the same. I learnt that theres the pink family and the brown and theres different undertones as well. I was having this huge grin that i'm starting to get wrinkles. Not like i need to know all that, but its worth knowing. Thanks again to Ai Lin the makeup artiste from Bobbi Brown, Gurney Plaza, Mama loves it!
