I had just received my travel claims last week and since I had promised some of my friends that I'd buy them the famous Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar, I decided, what other day would be greater than treating them on my birthday :D
Actually, I had already known that they were planning a suprise for me (sorry Puga..) as Farah, whom I now know as someone who can't keep a suprise to herself hahah, had told me the day before that they were planning a suprise for me.. duh!! Dah tak suprise dah la cik Farah oiiii.. but ok, I jusy played along (as I did for the past few years jugak where I'd ALWAYS know about it before hand.. sheesh! Can't a girl have her suprises now and then heheh..)..
So well, to let them prepare their 'suprise', I decided to ask Salimin to go with me to Kulim to buy the nasik ayam dot my (my favourite!). Initially, Farah wanted to go with me but she already told me she can't go because they wanted to do a suprise (hahah.. thats how I knew!).
Had a long talk with Salimin. This lil brother of mine dah nak balik Sarawak dah so banyak la nak sembang ngan dia. Besides, lame dah tak merepek² with him..
Then, as I arrived at school.. well, I'll give it to Puga, I had expected a cake but I didn't expect a roomful of balloons heheh.. so thanx!
See the table they used. Curik meje Yee, mentang² la amoi tu tak datang school aritu, then got a table cloth from the pantry. Sanggup korg angkat meje beso and berat tu ek hehe.. sgt sweet! Okay, sile abaikan the way I look, ni gambo candid from abg Fadzil, tak sempat nak senyum lawo² hehe..
And this is the spread. Notice that I have two cakes? Heheh.. apparently, my fellow postgrads weren't the only ones planning a suprise for me. And according to Farah, they had met with kak Sue and kak Bibah (from my colleagues in HiTEG) at the cakeshop near my tuition centre which is my favourite bakery here.
But get this.. because I have 2 cakes, I was 'required' to blow out a total of 56 candles. Talk about feeling young.. just look at what they did to my self-esteem by asking me to blow out 56 candles.. sheesh!!
The rows of individual trifle pudding is courtesy of Shahril who got the recipe from me (nak bgtau jugak tuuu recipe dia!). Sekarang dia dah lupe cake chocolate sedap dia, asyik nak wat trifle pudding je pulakk.. While the kacang², cake and sweets semua tu sponsored by postgraduates yang kalau tak silap, the main organizer is my dear Puga. Co-organized by abg Fadzil, Choong, Farah, Ad, Remy, Shahril.. uhh, Puga, akak ade tertinggal sesape tak?

Anyway, they really managed to make me smile the whole day.. this family I have in the School of Civil Engineering, and I love them all!!!
