Queen for a Day
My birthday this year, like many others before it, was a simple, quiet affair.
I received a few gifts that were all extremely special to me. My sister in Hong Kong got me an iPod when she found out that my second generation iPod was heading for iKaput Land. She downloaded some of my favourite songs and others she thought I would like into the nano - sure made me feel like the Queen. Not only that, she got it personalized with one of my favourite quotes from Executive Pastry Chef Shinsuke Nakajima, être douce pour vous , which means be sweet to yourself in French (because everything does sound better in French).
Turning 24 doesn't give me the right to shower you with words of wisdom but every once in a while, let's all remember to be sweet to ourselves.
