Happy Birthday to my dearest six+one’s Yodolyn! It’s so fun to travel with friends and we get so excited over every single thing. Every moment is fun and exciting with friends right? Can’t wait for even more holidays together! I wish you all the best in your exam and everything you do – in love especially. I love attending friend’s wedding especially someone close! hur hur! More holidays to come, and may you be prettier and younger each days! :) Love you! :)
We have successful got this surprise done yesterday with really great helps from everyone! Love the surprise look from Mel and I guessed all these worth so much better and in fact, most of us have lots of fun as well. So, here I am going to write everything done to mark this memorable day of the year! (so far lah~)
On Wednesday, we actually contacted our partner-in-crime Jody (Mel’s hubby, our friend as well) for their house key at Pungool. We ain’t going to rob their house or something, but in fact, preparing something BIG for the birthday girl on her actual birthday! The good thing was they will be away from home on thursday – friday for their family chalet! Which means, Mel will not be suspecting anything going on their house too! haha! WE GONNA MESS IT UPSIDE DOWN lol!!!!
On Thursday, Chef Jolene had done her grocery shopping right after work, and these was pretty tiring for her two hands :/ but thanks to her, we really have a great dining experience! :) THANK YOU CHEF! ^^
# the grocery for the next day!!
# look what’s jolene bake for us?
(SUPER LOTS OF GOOD COMMENTS ON HER CAKE!!!)
At the same time, teng was doing the brainstorm for the event, and I was doing some help out and some cutting of deco as well :) Just by looking at it, I felt the excitement haha! :P
#for the birthday girl! haha
#our menu of the day!!! :)))
#looking fun! :P
On friday, Teng & me actually have a day off to prepare the day starting at 1:30pm. At the same time, all of us have already got notify that we should dressed well for tonight event since its going to be a TOP-NOTCH restaurant concept. We picked up our first helper of the day – Zhili from tampines for our IKEA + GIANT shopping! We actually bought some props for the concept tonight from IKEA and not forgetting a little bit of grocery buying from GIANT. I really love how these places are placed side by side which made things really so much easier for us.
We reached JOMEL’s place at around 4pm. Teng did the table setting, zhili helped with the head banner ribbon and I was doing the pumping of balloons. Since pumping of balloons doesn’t need much concentration, I switched on the TV (when the owner was not even at home LOL!) to watch hahahahaa! After pumping 2 balloons successfully, the pump doesn’t work anymore… And, I have to manually get the dumb balloons up that eventually made me so tired and hungry…. I even woke zhili up if she wanted to share a packet of instant mee together HAHA!! :P
And check out our dining setting (with lights on). I must say it’s super gorgeous and awesomely done :) I love how much effort (buay paiseh say all these) on doing little bit of stuff to give the best experience to mel and every single one who took part in this because, we all made this happen :)
At around 7pm, Angela Chris and Jolene reached. With the minimum time – 1.5hours left we had to prepare the food setting and the touch up setting in the dining area. Now, everyone had reached, it made things way easier with more hands to get everything done in time… We left 1.5hours for everything to do ready :)
Angela helped Teng with the add on deco, while Chris and Zhili helped with the Smoked Salmon Canape (looking yummy seriously!). And, of cos, I’m CHEF Jolene assistant for helping her with the salad and pasta. hur hur! :) But well, I know NUTS on cooking seriously! This mean that… photos for the photos are upcoming soon! :)))
Our Chef is really good in cooking, and I must say it’s really good. The feedback for the pasta was really good. All of us love it so much, the sauce was really awesomely great. The taste with little bit of wine make it really taste delicious that words can’t express how good it was. As much as the dish was served with just prawn and scallop the taste doesn’t fail us any. We were really proud to say that, this pasta was done so much better than what outside had served. All the dishes are really good, but the pasta really impressed us alot! :)
So, what’s next will be just waiting for the Birthday girl to open the door. And, we have to patiently wait and looked out for the sound from the lift. This was so challenging and fun indeed.
Well, the video was commented abruptly stopped as usually haha! But, well, the birthday girl requested photo session right after that. I was the videographer as well as the photographer of the day, so I have to switch my role and definitely…. stopped that video haha! (The photo session took so long that we probably only able to have our dinner at least 30mins later…!)
And the food and party begins! :)
Our dearest yodo even had guest appearance with us, all the way from Aussie ^^
Let’s end the lovely party with a photo of Mel’s cute daughter – Belle.
Mel, happy birthday to you. Wish you all the best in your career, health and wealth.
We really hope this BIG BIG surprise made you really happy and felt really loved! :)
Six+One love you lots and let’s keep the friendship going! :)
(LAST SATURDAY EVENT!)
I think past few weeks theme was SURPRISES. I can’t remember how we get so excited over surprises and how eventually tired from the process since we have been preparing for like days! I think this all get really fun when we prepared for Belle’s birthday, and soon after when yodo is back for a surprise event! :)
Since we all having a ‘sort of farewell’ steamboat dinner for Yodo…. we thought, maybe we could also do one birthday event for Mel whose birthday is just one week away from today. (Actually, we also wanted to surprise zhili for her super advance birthday present too, but she didn’t make it for the dinner in the end hur hur) SO MUCH OF THE EVENTS in a day!!!
The chocolate banana cake that Mel ordered previously for Belle’s birthday was so awesomely nice, and we thought we could order one for early birthday surprise for mel during the steamboat dinner. The funniest and tough part was, we did not know where to order, so we had to contact Mel, whom is always the ‘mastermind’ of the group. And we believe she had guessed it. LOL!
Her birthday gonna be small small affair (happening today!), because, we getting THIS (photo below) for her birthday gift! We are going to Bangkok together! And this is like after so long since the KL trip in 2009 or something!
And we go ahead to her places for the little small affair and little surprises :D
the family that have their birthday back to back each other for the month!!!!
something you doesn’t need to own the world.
Neither be the richest, nor the wealth, or the limelight.
you feel happy when you are with the right person :)
Surprise for the birthday girl next week.
Farewell for Yodo at Mel’s place, and we intend to give Mel a little surprise :)
Just a sneak preview first, I will blog about it shortly.
(I seriously need some rest first, because I AM SO TIRED!)
Yes, we are getting her Bangkok Air Ticket for her birthday this year.
And, we decided to surprise her with a boarding pass.
I thought, this boarding pass is done in quite a good standard *hurhur*
Kinda proud of the outcome, so here’s the photo to show off a little :P
(more later, so much to blog and so much happening stuff within this few days!)
I’m off to do some work, and get ready to sleep because I need to wake up like 7am!
We were all prepared to give surprise to Jody whom, birthday fall the next day on Sunday! (Yes! this family hor, all their birthdays are just 1 week apart, so, belle is their greatest birthday gift ever!) Well, this time, Six+One did a simple surprise without Jody’s knowledgment. This won’t be a success without Mel’s help, and all her texting with us hur hur!
But before we have this energy, we going to have good food! hur hur! Define good food? As long with great company, who cares if the food is Fish Maw or Instant Mee! As long you are with the right person, anything will just turned nice and good! So does our zichar @ hougang! hur hur! I love big group dinner feast because anything funny can just happened. And it did. I have no idea why ordering drinks from the uncle turned out to be so funny. He even paused and laughed over 冬瓜茶! haha! Anyway, that uncle is funny and cute without any rude gesture. Just weird to know he laughed over this. HAHA!
How our timing get so perfect! :)
My hand super suan carrying the ipad to take photo. BUT THIS IS SO FUN! :D
And… THIS HAPPENED :)
JODY, hope you love the shocking surprises from us. And the mess we left hahahaha! :P
May you have the greatest in health and wealth! :) Happy Birthday!
