A Delightful Birthday Surprise

A dear friend from Kuching, Jason Chew whom I have only met in Perth is turning 21 this very day, hence good friends of his have secretly gathered and planned something sweet and beautiful to commemorate this special occasion. Getting a cake, a pressie and a number of friends together, we marched into his place (which happened to be extremely close to mine too) to celebrate his 21st birthday !!

Here is the video of Rachel (the sister) getting the cake ready while the rest of us tip toeing at her back to the living room to surprise Jason who was chilling and watching Prison Break on TV. Oh yeah, and we caught him half-naked !! Woo hoooo...

The Surprise

Jason seemed to be caught off guard for a while, but gathered himself together (and put on a layer of shirt on) and thanked everyone in his sweet, sweet smile. He is 21, which means, he does not have to remain innocent to be sweet. go figure. Experience speaking here. *grins widely*

Oh goodness, this has got to be one of the most heart-melting cakes I have ever tasted in my life. It definitely beats the crap out of anything you get from secret recipe, no kidding !! Alright, maybe I am saying this in the midst of over-ly worried and troubled mind, but hey, like I said in the previous entry, one of my ways of dealing with such situation is to indulge myself into something really sweet. A rush of sugar into the head can be as good as any drugs.

There were more than 10 of us present to celebrate Jason's Birthday. Coming together, sharing joy and laughters, and eating a slice of cake each somehow made the night a very meaningful one. I hope Jason feels the same way about it !!

It was indeed an awesome experience for me, and I always love to see people happy !! The smile and look of joy in everyone's face, and especially on the birthday boy, was just nothing short of priceless. There is just something about birthdays that can bring out the magic of happiness, everytime, without fail.
