50 years! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm 50 today. How I've waited for this day? Some women are afraid of reaching half a century. Not me! I've been so anxious for this day to arrive.

I reckon it's like celebrating the 21st birthday. Everyone waits for it, to get the so-called key to freedom.

Celebrating my 50th birthday is such a milestone for me. It's a privilege. Some don't get the chance to reach it.

I'm just deliriously happy. I'm with my loving family. What more could I ask for?

Today is the beginning of a new chapter for me.

Note: some birthday photos will be posted soon.

You look fabulous too, which says a lot for the spirit of the five decades of the life you have lived. Love your posts. Happy Birthday and here's to the next 50!

Miriam: How nice of you to post a kind comment and wish for my birthday. That, in itself, was a great gift.

Thank you ever so much! :)

Hi...the years have been kind to you and you know that it is Family that makes you deliriously happy. Enjoy Life. You will be too busy today to read anything now...so will write later.

Lita, you and me are the same. I also was so so excited to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was a milestone that I reached despite not having much to show lah. A broken marriage and no kids, nothing to my name but I was still so excited to turn 50. When you come back from Singapore, we shall go out ok. Again Happy Birthday and God Bless you my dearest friend. Hey you don't even look it.....God has given you the genes and you look absolutely lovely. Enjoy...

Hei, are you sure you are 50 and not less. You look wonderful and charming.

Sorry for the belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY greeting.

Wow baby. You really look good and sweet.

Hope I will look just as good when I turn 50. Not too far away.

Just back from Singapore and catching up with the comments!

HH: Yes, I can testify to the fact that FAMILY and all that it encompasses, made the great difference to my life. It would be remiss of me not to mention the friends too! Thanks for the wishes. Hugs :)

Patricia said...

I just had to squeeze in my 'happy birthday' here - so it is on record lah!

I opened this in PD, and wasn't able to post a comment :(

Who'd be afraid of 50 if they looked as cool as you do? ;)
