Yesterday was my dad's birthday. We threw a little surprise party for him - he just got back from middle east on the 25th, at the stroke of midnight. Talk about perfect timing. So when he entered the house which was pitch-black at that time, all he could see was something with burning candles on the dining table. He didn't have the slightest idea what it was until all 4 of us came out from our hiding spots (mama, my sis and I nyorok tepi dinding; my bro menyarap tepi bawah meja) and shrieked "SURPRISE!!!" followed by hugs and kisses and a birthday song. He grinned, and I could see his surprised look. I guess he was still a bit jet-lagged and exhausted that he had forgotten his own birthday (which is so typical of him)!
Btw, Happy Birthday and Happy Father's Day, abah!
