Alvin's Surprise Birthday Party

It was 12.08 a.m.

"Please, please do cut one slice of the cake first"

"Wait wait we all take group photo first"

"Here, let me have that one slice of the cake"

"OK everyone get ready to pose..."

"And 1...2..."





We were sitting at the Happy Valley Restaurant, enjoying our drinks and some supper. We were there right after we watched "Kung Fu Panda" (hilarious show by the way!) and that the restaurant was already a preplanned destination after the movie. Surprisingly, Alvin did not suspect anything as we mysteriously agreed to go to Happy Valley without any other kind of debate or options (usually we take bloody ages just to decide where to go).

Again, as this was preplanned we had two other friends, Moses and Hong waiting for us at the restaurant. Those two had to miss our movie night for the sake of getting Alvin's birthday cake to be brought and hidden there. While Alvin would probably had a slight startle with their appearance, he still had not suspect any kind of surprise.

If I was him, I would be getting paranoid, and my spider sense tingling. Especially when within the next few minutes it would be my birthday.

So at 5 minutes to midnight, Moses went to get the cake, and we distract Alvin from viewing his back by talking to him. And when he did looked at the back I was expecting a big Mr.Bean-like facial reaction from him...

...but then it was nothing more than a stoned and emotionless look. Like Gay Cow Jay Chou in Initial D.

We would think that maybe he had known about the surprise, but actually he was shocked.

So the plan worked. We did the usual birthday ritual (singing Happy Birthday, etc) and ate the cake and left to sleep or to watch Germany lose to Croatia.


The end.




Oh by the way, when we had our group photo:




P.S. (1) It was too fucking expensive to buy a whip-cream only cake specifically to smack his face down; and the main cake was too nice to do the lesser-known birthday ritual (come-on, not on the blueberry sponge cake!). So hence we make do with just a slice of the cake. Bummer.

P.S. (2) The actual group photo with him freshly smacked was taken using Chok's camera and not mine :( So a photo update will come soon ya!
