Another delayed post for me…
For the past years, I really don’t celebrate my birthdays. Some friends would text but it’s just a normal day… no birthday nightout, no party, nothing…
Last May 21 was my 32nd birthday, it was a memorable one. After all these years with no celebration, I ended up celebrating it twice! 2 surprise birthday parties for me (one at the house & one at the office). Thanks to Lucy & my colleagues!
- Surprise Breakfast B-day Celebration at my House
Lucy (my yaya who I lived with at my house) arranged this breakfast party for me She has been living with me for the past 5-6years and it was in actuality her birthday 3 days after my birthday.
Lucy invited my carpoolmates Anna, Mariel, Queena & Anna’s mom to have breakfast at our house to celebrate my birthday. When I woke up that morning, Lucy greeted me sooo happily! When I finished shower, I went down. To my surprise, everything was laid out..
Spaghetti, fried chicken, a cake personally bought by Lucy & her gift for me (black shoes by Natasha). I was just sooo touched. Lucy is the sweetest yaya/maid ever! I treat her as my sister, I believe she treats me the same. She has never failed to make me laugh whenever she sees I’m lonely, and she also never fails to take care of me whenever I get sick.
I really thank Lucy for such effort, it’s just so heartwarming. This is truly unforgettable. I’m just so lucy to have Lucy & I appreciate and love her more for it.
- Surprise Merienda B-day Celebration at the Office Pantry
I arrived at the office happily after being treated so specially by Lucy. Somehow, my officemates didn’t greet me for my birthday (seems like everyone forgot about it w/c is really weird ). I didn’t think about it that much since I was conducting a daylong training to some HP folks for my role that I need to transition out.
After the training, my colleague Paul told me to go to pantry coz he needed to ask me something about work. When we arrived at the pantry, SUPRISE! My closest colleagues were there, happily greeted me “Happy Birthday!” It was really a suprise! I was trying to fight my tears, it’s just to touching. I was rarely treated that way, so things like these really has a great effect on me.
My favorite food like birthday misua, etc were served. It was just… soo heartwarming. I believe Jo, Maus & my BBS friends organized this for me. They asked everyone not to greet me during the day so it will truly be a super surprise.
Inspite of the busy schedule that everyone has, they took the time to celebrate my birthday with me… Thank you so much everyone! This is just… touching.
