The last weekend had been extremely taxing for Rey, Mich and myself. Rey had an upcoming paper (which was actually today), while Mich and I had heaps of readings and assignments to do. In addition to all that, R and M were hosting a surprise birthday party for Aaron.
So, we got to Inala to get our supplies. I swear, Inala has one of the cheapest pricing for fruits and meats! Of course, quality wise… *decrescendos into a mumble*
It took us the whole afternoon to prepare the food! I’ve never did know that SO MUCH hard work was put into a mere BBQ preparation…
Obviously, I have no prior experience in at all. ): I was totally drained when evening came. Thankfully R was still able to drive me home. Haha.
It was a long day for me, mainly because I had to attend a festival for one of my assignments before the celebration. Still, Aaron’s euphoria upon learning about his surprise party wasn’t only seen on his grinning face; he was OOZING with gladness which was almost tangible! I guess, that took away most of my fatigue and made the whole surprise party really enjoyable!
Alright, I’ll let the pictures do the talking once again
, because I’m THAT lazy.
All the eaters unite
Mandatory cake cutting ceremony
Not-so-mandatory card presentation ceremony
And the pretty card was made by Mich! (:
Photo taking session
Not forgetting, the randoms!
And their affiliations. Laughs!
Aaron = R’s “boyfriend”
Dinah = M’s “girlfriend”
Aaron = M’s boyfriend’s “boyfriend” = Dinah’s “girlfriend”‘s boyfriend’s “boyfriend”
Oh well, we’re just somehow affiliated. Laughs.
Last group memory!
Although I don’t exactly know most of them (since I’m actually just tagging along with R and M…), but I really had a great time! You could tell that Aaron was really pleasantly surprised and happy that we all remembered and celebrated his birthday. And in the midst of our mid-semester exams and assignments, most of us stayed till the end. (:
