A year older, hopefully wiser, and definitely more grateful… This post is more than a week late, but better late than never. Honestly, I was really pondering on what my birthday post should be. I just ended up posting on my Instagram account (@lush_angel) since I feel I have nothing much to say. Haha! But today, I feel like talking about birthdays and aging so here it is…


What is it like to be 34? I don’t think there’s much difference on how it felt when I was 33. Probably, it’s just harder to type 3-4 because it comes with a reminder that “hey, you’re 34 years old!” LOL!

Kidding aside, I never really dwelled on my age. As they say, age is just a number. What matters most for me is how I live my life– how happy I am, how contented I am, and how I learned from previous mistakes. Contrary to others, there’s nothing to be sad about aging. Yes, there my be lines and creases, but I think they’re beautiful. They are evidences of happiness, laughter, and even the challenges I’ve conquered. Aging is a privilege that has been denied to many; therefore, it’s something I should be thankful for. That being said, thank you, I made it to 34!


Although I’m thankful for another year, it doesn’t mean I have to look sloppy, right? Sharing my birthday lewk here. Nothing really special. I just made sure to wear red (because of Chinese tradition) and go for an almost bare faced.


I just used the following products:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup
Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer
La Mer Sheer Pressed Powder
NARS Liquid Blush in Hot Tin Roof
Maybelline Tattoo Brow Ink Pen
Etude House Color My Brows in Natural Brown
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Molly Wow.


There you go… I want to keep this short and sweet as I just got back from my birthday trip in Siargao.
