It was a week of pretense and white lies as friends wanted to surprise their loved ones. First, Yuki wanted to surprise Horng with a small gathering. She roped in some of us in the plans, I ended up having to make the call to persuade the birthday boy to the agreed venue.
Me: Horng, I need your help to move something, can ar? I’m sick and Kerol‘s not at home.
Horng: Errr okay. What time?
Me: 1pm can or not? ‘Cos now I’m not at home but I’ll be home at 1.
Horng: Later a bit can ar? ‘Cos I want to go for lunch with Yuki.
Me: Oh… very fast one.. come before your lunch la.
Horng: Cannot lah, I need to eat, I’m hungry. Wait a bit la.. I’ll come after lunch okay.
Me: *thinks oh f- f- f-!*
Bla bla bla, Yuki and I (individually) managed to get him to come at 1pm. Most memorable moment was ShaolinTiger hiding behind a palm tree, hehehe. Happy birthday Horny!
Then LL, Mike‘s bride-to-be’s ji mui wanted to take her out for a surprise hen’s night dinner. We opted for Silver Spoon Trattoria in Bandar Menjalara where the well-known Chef Ken rules the kitchen roost. Most lovely food, great ambiance, wonderful manager by the name of Kelvin. You should definitely check the place out for yourself!
I asked Mike to deliver her to the venue because they were going around Selangor and Pahang trying to get things done for their wedding (which will be E.P.I.C.!) next week. Haha sometimes I wonder why people never suspect anything when their other half behaves out of the norm. Means Mike is a good pretender la, HOOORRRRR!!!!!

Poojitha’s husband Girish had invited a few of us to join in a surprise birthday party for her at Zeta Bar. It was massive fun, way too much fun for a Monday evening! Of course I suffered for it at Bootcamp this morning but it was worth it, heh!
I think I can start my own business. Rent-A-Surprise, anyone?
