Hubby surprised me with an early birthday present, it's the new Canon Powershot 500 HS in Rose Pink. He knew that I've been wanting to upgrade my point & shot with a new camera that can record HD video :)
Then, hubby asked if I want to take our son to go to a park, I said yes. While waiting for my new camera to get a quick charge, we shave Ethan's head...lol...not for fun tho! His hair was (and still is) so thin and start looking weird, so we decided to shave his hair really short. But before I had a chance to told hubby not to shave TOO short, he already shaved it all o_O"
Hi Point Park (from now on, all the new picture was taken using my new camera...yay!)
and later that night, It was Balinese night...I cooked authentic Balinese dishes for my girl friends :)
2011.06.04 My Birthday

And off course an icy treat always good for a hot Summer day
after that, I grab some delicious tacos from this taco truck near my house...they are sooo good!! I especially love the spicy pork tacos
then, for the 1st time in a loooooong time, I'm having small birthday dinner with hubby, bebe and 2 of my Indonesian girls at one of our favorite sushi restaurant...my other friends keep asking me to throw big party, but I was in the mood for a simple dinner this year :)
