Birthday seems incomplete without the presence of near and dear ones. Actor Kim Sharma knows this and has flown down from Mombasa, Kenya, to be with her parents in Mumbai to celebrate her birthday tomorrow. She shares her plans with CS

It's family time
I love being with my family on this special day. Ali, my husband, has also come down to Mumbai. We will have a big get-together with my  family and his. It will be a day of fun and feasting. This might sound funny, but food seems to become an important part of your life as you grow older. My mom will definitely prepare my favourite dishes. Kavita, a close friend, is planning to bake a huge cake for me. Another friend, Poonam, has also planned a lavish dinner for Ali and me. So, my birthday is going to be full of yummy delicacies.  

Gifts galore
No one is allowed to come near me on my birthday if they don't have a gift for me. My parents will gift me something, but their presence is enough for me. Ali has already gifted me a precious pair of earrings and a Range Rover SUV. I was thrilled to get the SUV, and took it out for a spin on the first day itself! 

Chilling out
I stay busy in Mombasa with my hubby's hospitality business, so my time in Mumbai is holiday time. I love going out for lunches with friends or catch up on some shopping, meet family members or head off to the spa. Otherwise, I am just lounging at home spending quality time with my folks.
