Surprises are the sweetest.

It's almost the end of April, but as I have said before, it still continues to be a month-long celebration!

Guess what was waiting for me when I got back to my parents' home yesterday?

It's a card that came all the way from Canada!
Thank you sooo much, Kym! What a sweet gesture ♥
I love you and I can't wait to hang out with you again!
And then last night, I went to see my closest friends from high school again! I haven't seen them since our Tagaytay weekend last month, so I was really excited to catch up with them. We planned to have dinner at Chef Carlos, an eat-all-you-can restaurant owned by one of our other classmates, and I asked them to pick me up so we can all go together. Next thing I know they were all calling me, asking where I was! They all forgot to pick me up!!! But that's fine, I just went there by myself and then we had a sumptuous meal consisting of different kinds of Chinese dishes :)

Turns out these guys had something for me...

A birthday cake! Awwww ♥
They also surprised me with a big birthday card that they have all signed :)
Aaand Ric said he couldn't resist smothering my face with icing haha.
This takes me back to when I celebrated my 15th birthday. We were all in Bulacan then for our bi-annual weekend out of town, and it coincided with my birthday. When the clock struck 12 midnight of April 6, none of them were talking to me and went back to Aiza's house (where we stayed at the time) ahead of me! When I finally got there, they were all waiting at the village's basketball court, surrounded with candles and santan flowers as a surprise for me :) I am blessed with the sweetest friends, really :)

Going back to the present, we went to 7-11 to buy some spirits after dinner.

We mixed the GSM Blue with Sprite.
That Mardi Gras mango-orange Vodka Schnapps? It smelled and tasted so good ;)
We then headed back to Dianne's house where we spent the night talking, drinking, eating, and laughing. They also played some card games but I couldn't, for the life of me, understand the rules so I just sat slept there ;D

Sooo much better to spend my Friday night with people who really want me to be there and won't lie to me about it!

Now I wonder what's the best way to cap this super amazing month. I think I want a whole-body massage :)

PS: Today is also my sweet and pretty friend Ava's birthday. Why don't you hop on over to her blog and leave a few sweet words? ♥
