On Saturday Morning I begged my honey to let me open my birthday gift early. I got a new DSLR camera, he bought me the Canon EOS Rebel T4i with a 50mm lens. I’ve been having a ball taking pics with the new camera, it takes great pics. I will be picking up 2 more lenses in the next few weeks, probably 18-55 and 55-250, I am still researching.

We were supposed to go clubbing after dinner but it was really late and everyone was tired so my honey and I went out to a spot for a little bit for some drinks and dancing. On Sunday my actual birthday, we wentΒ to breakfast, then to Spa Castle for some pampering and relaxing. We got the Aromatherapy Massages and hung out in the different Saunas and pools.
