Husband knows how much i love drama so he gave me a lomo camera. I took all the photos, but of course except the last two. Believe me you can never go wrong with lomography. Very dummy friendly. Yey! The effects are endless, easy to use, meaning not very technical and the vignetting effect is soooooo cool. Am in love. More photos here.

And thank you all so much for all the birthday greetings. It means so much to me. Cos in a society that taught women not to celebrate each year of life, especially those numbers obsolete on the calendar, but to hide the increasing years behind a bland smile and denial. Well consider me a rebel on that society. Because am really so excited to be 30 plus soon. So, do i want to go back and be young again? NO. Cos in fact i hate being in High School or i wasn't very happy then. When i was younger, at that time in my life, I was not happy with myself most of all. When all i want to be is become brave, daring, coy and seductive like other girls my age, I was the opposite. The truth is I was shy and unsure. I did not like my body or my face. Well, i did not become tall and sexy and seductive when i got old. But getting older, having white hair, more wrinkles, and added sack of pounds, and some occasional joint pain definitely gave me the boldness and confidence I didn't have before. I am happier now. Am more at peace. And nothing confuses me anymore. Cheers to 30!

Have a great day everyone!
