Surprised at 30

Celebrating a birthday is one of the happiest life events as God's blessing.  That's why many of us would hold a party or just a simple family and friends dinner, some just live a normal day without taking any effort, and some friends like to surprise them.

My friends and I planned a surprise birthday party for Diane. Since everyone's busy we have to plan it for a month. We must meet everyone's schedules to make it happen. And since its summer, we've decided to have a summer outing, too! Double purpose, indeed. Haha! 

So, how did it go?

First, the date was the first complicated decision. Before, after or on the exact day. If before the date, it would fall on Holy Week. If after, the celebrant might travel somewhere. And if the exact date, she might celebrate it with her family. To solve this, we contacted her sister. Haha! Yes, we must let her family know that we will be holding a surprise party for Diane. And thank God they let us have Diane on that date. :) 

Second, we've started to look for a resort within Cavite City or nearby places with affordable rates. We were actually torn between booking the whole place or just walk-ins for daytime or night swimming. It's summer so most of the resorts were probably fully booked. But since we were only a few, we decided to book daytime at Octea Resort in Cavite City. Then each of us brought our food and drinks pledges. Even our friends residing abroad sent us their contributions. :)

Lastly, how we able to invite the celebrant? Well, Diane is an instructor at one of the medical mission fields this is why Jane had a chance to invite, forcibly actually haha! for another "teaching sideline". Haha! Yes, Jane made her believed that they will be teaching at Octea Resort. Haha!

Did we suceed? Yes, it was a success! Hiding something from a friend is not that easy at all. And hey, it's a month of being quiet. Haha! Yes, I am that talkative. And had actually spilled some beans before the party went well. Haha! So, don't blame me for being clumsy. Haha!
