My legendary surprise pre-birthday celebration!

04 April 2014

Dear carpool-mates, you got me. You got me real good.

It was an elaborate ploy that involved me, milk tea, and Mary Jay.

After work, Chum told me she'll treat me to Bubblicitiea in Malabon as she recently got her bonus. Since she and our other carpool-mates have been raving about the food there, I went with her. While eating penne, chicken 'n chips, and choco-peppermint, I was already starting to worry because I still needed to do some last-minute preparations for my party tomorrow. After eating, she said we should pass by the adjacent Mary Jay so we can hitch a ride with her aunts.

As I entered Mary Jay, everyone started singing the birthday song! It turns out Ralph, Ate Sheila, Ate Ahyen, and Ate Annie have been waiting there all along! Mike also followed, and I was so happy because we haven't had the chance to eat breakfast together for so long! They then gave me their sweet messages and gave me cupcakes with photos of the How I Met Your Mother cast, with me substituting the Mother.. Look!


What an awesome surprise! Thank you so much, guys! Thank you for being my awesome friends!


Dear Chum, Mike, Ralph, Ate Sheila, Ate Ahyen, and Ate Annie, thank you for being proof that when it comes to friendship, it's not about the quantity but the quality. I am so grateful that I met all of you! My life is richer because of you! I really, really, really appreciate it. Thank you so much from the bottom of my pink glittery heart! I really didn't expect this! You pulled out all the stops, and it was legendary.

“And that’s how it goes, kids. The friends, neighbors, drinking buddies, and partners-in-crime you loved so much when you’re young - as the years go by, you just lose touch… You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.
