MY 21ST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!


Your girl is officially 21!! 

I am super excited to blog about my birthday party!! To be honest, I have never thrown a birthday party in my life lolol. Oh wait, I actually did throw a mini birthday party in McDonalds when I was 10 lolol! Anyway, I usually celebrate my birthday only with my close friends and family, nothing fancy, nothing big. 

I couldn't recall how everything came about, but back in June, my talent manager and I were talking about birthdays. Then, she asked me: "Eh, are you going to throw a birthday party this year? You are turning 21 right?" 

I shook my head and said: "Aiya, no la, I don't really know how to decorate and set up everything and it requires so much time and effort to actually organise a birthday party!" 

Then she said: "Oh no, this is your 21st birthday, you should definitely throw a party la!! For the decorations and everything, I will help you to contact a birthday planner to plan everything for you ok!!"

So I was like: Wow, since I have a team of professionals helping me to plan everything, WHY NOT?!! 

We then approached PaperGoodz, which is a team of very nice and creative talents that specialise in events planning. PERFECT FOR LAZY (AND UNCREATIVE) PEOPLE LIKE ME. 

We met up in Starbucks in late June and there, I told them about the kind of theme I want for my birthday party. Initially, I wanted to go for a "rose gold" theme but I realised that it's not really special...so I thought of going for a funkier, colourful theme. Then, I took a look at my own wardrobe and noticed that I actually have a lot of jackets and clothes with PATCHES and LOGOS. (I am a big fan of anything with patches and logos ok!!) 

So yup, A THEME OF PATCHES AND LOGOS IT IS!!! 

I showed them some samples of patches from Google and they told me it's a totally fresh idea to them, as they haven't actually done anything similar before! Within a few days, they started giving me a list of things that they will be preparing for my birthday party, such as a photobooth, a backdrop, a candy bar, balloons, a birthday cake and etc! I would say that they really covered most of the necessary things for a birthday, which left me with almost nothing to worry about at all. Totally hassle-free and stress-free!
When you actually have a team of creative people that work out everything for you = BAGUSNYA. 

We then had a 2nd meeting just a week before my birthday to finalise everything, including the venue and the "floor map", which illustrated the exact spots where they would set up the photobooth, the tables, and etc. 

FAST FORWARD TO 7TH AUGUST. 

It's someone's big day. It's my big day. 
Without any expectation or any idea how the party will be like, I was nervous yet extremely excited. 
I wonder how the set-up would look like (I didn't know what the decoration will look like at all until I reached the venue)
I wonder how many people would turn up for the celebration. 
I just couldn't help pondering about so many trivial things! 

At 10.30am, my family and I headed out to the party venue, which is at Awegallery, PJ. 
The reason why I chose Awegallery is because it is spacious and it can accommodate up to 60 people!

Upon reaching, I could already see the Papergoodz team buzzing about in the place, setting up and paying attention to every single detail of the decorations. I got to witness how they actually set up everything from scratch. The whole picture was as if the many hands of Maker are putting together pieces of your Puzzle of Destiny, as your dream slowly unfolds and solidifies into a formless matter marked existent by time, before your very eyes.

Last but not least, the awesome team from Papergoodz!!!
Yup, that's all for my birthday. It was indeed a very special and memorable one. Thank you everyone who came to my birthday, you have no idea how precious your presence means to me! Thank you so much for being a part of this.

I know I had said this a lot, but thank you thank you thank you Papergoodz for organising my birthday. Without them, this party wouldn't be a successful one. T___T If you are looking for a creative team of party / event planner, do not hesitate to contact Papergoodz. They are really passionate and good at what they are doing, which is why I enjoyed working with them so much.

And, special shoutout to Michelle, my talent manager from Nuffnang, for "convincing" me to throw a birthday party and also liaising with Papergoodz as well as Awegallery!!

Besides, I would like to thank Benefit Cosmetics and Shu Uemura for sponsoring my birthday doorgifts! These 2 brands are the brands that I adore and have been working with for years now, so it was really my honour to be able to share my love for them with all my guests!

  1. I love this place in particular, it always has the best and impressive events every year. This venue is the perfect location if you are looking to host the event of a lifetime. The main-level of NYC venues have large comfortable space.
