♥...My Birthday Gift & An Award...♥

No food post for today as I was little busy the whole yesterday doing nothing...Hahaha! Well, I cooked for both lunch and dinner...that's a lot of work already right! I recently celebrated my 31st Birthday, on 7th Nov. A prezzie from beloved Hubby is a must...owh, I'm so mean!!! Panasonic Lumix FH20, a pocket digital camera this time. A gift which I can keep in my bag and walk around, get some candid shots. I'm beginning to like the camera, pics are good especially outdoor ones. Can't be carrying our Canon dslr bag everywhere. That's mainly to shoot food pics and hubby's marine aquarium. Also for vacations and functions. Newayz, I love both the cameras!!! Thanks my dear Hubby, in Cape Town right now...missed U Chelo!!! Next, I received an award! Ms. Biren @ RotinRice and Ms.Ruby @ punjabifooddiary passed me One Lovely Blog Award. I should first apologize for posting the award little late here.
