Czar would always say that his birthday is just like any other normal day and so he expects it to be the same this year.
I love throwing surprise parties for the people I love to make them feel special, because they really are. Plus I really love organising and planning events too. I planned it a month ahead and sent invites already to few of our colleagues, family and friends.
The party in BSA Suite Makati didn’t push through though because the hotel said that they don’t allow visitors to go the the hotel room. Whether they are really that strict or not, I do not want to take the risk. I canceled my reservation
Luckily and to our surprise, the restaurant La PiaDina on the ground floor of our office building has a small function room at the back. We have been eating there but we have not noticed it. Problem solved and it’s perfect since the party will happen in between our work shift.
I recommend the restaurant for small parties or functions since the food is nice plus the waiters and staff are okay. I even asked one waiter to act that when Czar and I arrived in the restaurant, he’ll say that all free tables are reserved and we can only be accommodated in the extended (function) room. He did well even though I was already laughing at the back!
Our colleagues, family and friends were there already before 7pm and they had the lights closed and Czar was really surprised to see them all! He didn’t get a hint that this was happening. Thanks to everyone who really acted well even on our planning stage. (:
Happy birthday, Czar! He understood immediately when he saw that the theme was nautical. He is a fisherman wannabe plus he loves watching shows in NatGeo, Discovery Channel and the like about fishing, Tuna, aquariums etc.
The cake idea was not well materialised though by my supplier. Good thing it still tastes great! Here’s what I wanted:
The food and decors:
The games! Of course we should make it a legit party! The epic-pin-the-nose game and newspaper dance.
Everyone had so much fun especially Czar so target achieved! Thanks to everyone who came and made such an effort. Special thanks to Marj, my sister and my mom for helping me organise the party. Our work teammates and colleagues for coming albeit it’s during our work shift and some even had overlapping meetings. My whole family came too! And Czar’s sister, BIL to be and best friend!
HAPPINESS! Thank You!
