Creative + intelligent + determine = SF Bro (my eldest bro)
Last Sunday 04.04 was my bro's birthday and we plan for a surprise party for his 50th year old bday. He is actually not 50 yet but for some culture believe, we celebrate as 50th. hhaaa.....
The mastermind of the event is my sis-in-law BQ1. Planning has been going on for a month without my bro's single clue.All my in-law's family members and my family including grandma, papa, mama, bros, sis, cousins, niece, nephews etc arrived BQmama's house at 5pm. The hall is nicely decorated with balloons, flags and banner. However, he won't know that the surprise will be that huge. My bro is suppose to arrive around 6pm thinking that his mum-in-law BQmama is preparing some noodles (represent long life) for his birthday and a simple celebration will be within the in-laws. We kept all the shoes in a store room and those with vehicles will park them else where so that my bro is unaware at all about our present.
When Bro SF reached the car park, BQ1 signal us by phone. All of us hide in the rooms with party hats, whistles, party masks, flowers and cameras standing by. Upon his arrival, he is unaware as we are keeping very quiet (so are the little ones...good boys and girls). He opened the first room door (using keys arranged nicely in a box to match the doors) where BQ1's sisters and cousins were. He is delighted but not knowing that a bigger surprise is awaiting.
He proceeded to the second room where all the seniors, bro, sis and kids were. Everyone blew the whistles and shouted out loud "Happy Birthday" !!! He was so shock and overwhelm. My father was the first to receive him at the door with a sweet pinkish and purplish flower wreath presenting it to my bro around his neck.
Everybody left the room with a big hand shake with broSF. After exceeding the room and proceeded to the hall, my bro is requested by all to give a speech. All cameras were on him. You know what, he had mists in his eyes. My brilliant sis-in-law BQ1 announce to all to pay attention to my bro's eyes. Haha......I zoom in to his eyes to take a close up shot. My bro was so so touch so does the rest. Tears of joys flow from broSF, BQ1mama, sisters and papa too. You can feel bliss and love in the air. My bro thanks all for their love and wishes all with health and bless with love.
Sumptuous home cooked vegetarian meals were served in buffet style. Most of us ate 3 rounds each. Thanks to BQmama & BQpapa. What an excellent spread.
After dinner, program continue with two little nieces dancing in ballet. Two beautiful little angels of BQ1 eldest sis win rounds of applause from all. The funniest presentation of all was cousins (boys) wearing masks with my bro's faces printed on it doing cat walk and imitating broSF. They sway around the hall with my bro sitting on VIP seat enjoying the show. The last model is one of the handsome cousin dressed in BroSF's doctor suit with clutch bag imitating the way broSF walk and cough. The mask were super impose with my broSF's face and funny hair style such as hippies, african bob, girly style etc. Wonderful backgound music was played by BQ1's younger bro. He is also one of the event planner. Nice job bro.
The grand finale is the beautiful cake from my 2nd bro SS & sis-in-law ET. The chocolate cake is marvelous and beautifully decorated with fresh fruits and chocolate. Lights were dim and the cake was marched out by cousin. Wishes were made and more pictures and videos were taken.
I told BQ1 that it seems like we are celebrating 21st birthday for broSF. Walking down the memory lane, I still vividly remember how we celebrate for broSF on his 21st birthday. We booked a chalet and had a BBQ and buffet party with karaoke, disco dance and majong game. Many friends turn up and the party was fun. My mum and grandma were excellent cook and the food was unforgettable. We were young then and we were matured now (I do not want to use the word old hehe) but our love is as strong as ever.
I'm so glad and contented that my bro is being loved by so many. I'm sure my mum and my grandma will be very comfort too. As our guiding angels, I'm sure they are there with us in the party laughing and saying "Xiao Lok" (mad kids in teochew) haha..... It is their wish to see us in bliss, our promise to them to be cohesive and proud to say that we did it.
I couldn't sleep that night as I'm so overwhelm by the whole arrangement. I started sending sms to BQ1 telling her how great the party is and how happy I am. BQ1.....great job !!!!! Hey, will you arrange one like that for me when I reach 50 ? No tears please but laughter and fun ok. You have 30 years to plan cos I'm just 20. Take your time. I need a perfect party LOL.
