A Double Birthday Celebration at Kim Ga Nae.

So last night my husband and I had a double celebration dinner at Kim Ga Nae, a Korean barbecue restaurant in Damansara Uptown.

Colmar Tropicale, In All Its Glory.

So I’m going to have yet another long weekend in January this month, my first for 2017 apart from the one we had for New Year’s Eve. It is actually my 30th birthday surprise weekend getaway which was long overdue because my husband was unable to secure the dates in December on my actual birth…
