i am still having the best birthday week ever! it keeps getting better! after a long 9 hour work day on saturday, two of my friends took me out to a club, but before we walked in, ALL of my friends jumped out and surprised me! it was so sweet of them to organize that for me, and we had an amazing time dancing the night away! and after we also went night-swimming in my friends pool :-)

and today, me and my friend Matt spent a nice afternoon together. we went on top of his roof, overlooking the city, and just talked about everything in life. we then went on a nice hike in the valley behind his house. everything was so beautiful, from the crisp wind to all the flowers in bloom and all the native birds singing.

i have not immersed myself in nature like this in so long. i hope you enjoy these photos of our islands tropical forests, since many of you live in places with forests that have beautiful 4 seasons. it's nice to be friends with people across the world, and share our different environments :-)

i also wanted to share with you, this dish i made the other day. it was string beans cooked in a pumpkin sauce, on top of over-easy eggs, on top of rice. it was very delicious!

and to end my weekend off right, i watched the 'Oto Na Ri' movie which arrived at my doorstep the other day along with the other DVD i bought ('Peeping Life'). i must say, Otonari was such a great movie!! i laughed, i cried, i felt many things...its such a beautiful movie with a great story line! and my favourite part about the film was the heavy importance of the song 'Kaze Wo Atsumete'. they always hummed it in their apartments, and there was also a pretty instrumental version of the song playing in one of the scenes. i love that song so much.

the rain won't go away. as much as I like rain, it's been all dark and gloomy since Friday. Weather really affects your mood, ne?

continue to celebrate through out the year!

Lovely photos. You sure do find the most wonderful simple footwear. I still can't find espadrilles that look anything like the ones you featured in a previous post, all the ones I found are high heel impractical versions. Love the huaraches too
