Turning 30 – the moment I had been dreading! It was actually lucky it occurred as it did, in Singapore and following one of my best friend’s weddings, as it put the day in perspective, as something to be enjoyed, but something small in the larger scheme of things.

My 30th began right after the wedding – midnight, which was when we arrived at a club to dance with friends after the reception.

With the love of my life and best friend.

With two of my closest girl friends, Beverly and Lisa – no better way to see in my 30th year!

On the dance floor together for the first time!

After a late night dancing, we had a great sleep in the next morning, and a late breakfast. Perfect way to spend the last day of our trip.

A birthday isn’t a birthday without gifts! Thanks Alec for this gorgeous bracelet.

Beverly, as well as organising her wedding, also managed to organise a day out for my birthday! Thanks so much Bev, I really appreciate it, and had the best birthday ever thanks to you, Lise, Chris and Alec.

About to board the Singapore Flyer and watch the Singapore Day celebrations from the air.

Hello Singapore, thanks for celebrating with me!

After the Flyer we enjoyed an amazing foot reflexology session followed by massage (total bliss), while Lise and Chris tried the fish spa

Next we head off on an epic adventure through the Singapore Day celebrations to find a restaurant I have been wanting to try – a vegetarian Mediterranean restaurant called Original Sin. We arrived quite late but thankfully they were still open. The food, as in the reviews I’ve read, was delicious, the wine lovely, and we had a really delightful evening.

Dinner party comes to an end!

My first birthday cake!

Back at the hotel, the girls had organised another birthday cake for me! A delish chocolate concoction. Best way to end a birthday – eating cake at midnight. Thank you Bev and Lise!

Happy birthday to me!
