Its My Birthday! Party Wooo! ( also TGIF )

YAY! I'm turning 30 tomorrow!


I never thought I'd see the day, but here it is. You know, when I was 20 I seriously thought people in their 30's were so old, and that by the time you reach 30 it's all over. I don't know if that's so true anymore... To be honest, I'm still having the best time of my life, and generally I'm still on the uphill.


So the party is on tomorrow, at 6PM, Hellenic Club, all invited :) and if you are around come and shout us a drink. No prizes for guessing my favourite beer :) but I'll also accept Tequila shots.


I'm a little sad though cause my baby won't be with me. Maya had to go overseas on a work trip so we'll be celebrating next weekend, going to a gala dinner organised by a local Flickr group. There will be prizes and all.


This photo was taken in Sydney, just near the Sydney Opera House.


Thanks a million everyone, in Explore and on Front Page! You all made an old man very happy :}

    Hey Sam.. happy belated birthday.. Long live Leos haha..
    I thought exactly the same thing too.. but 30 and still having the best time of my life.

    I actually thought you were older, looking at the amazing pictures on your flickr page, and this kind of "mastery" usually comes from a weatlh of experience.. but 30? hehe..

    happy belated bday (and congrats on the engagement!).

    but is that a lemon?? is that how y'all roll down under? weird - never seen that before. here is texas i guess we're too close to mexico to deviate much from the source - lime all the way.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Happy birthday mate! A bit late but it's OK for such a milestone....30s are by far the best years- it's the perfect mix of appearance and wiseness...
