Yung surprise na maganda at hindi yung pangit.
Nov. 30 2015 is going to be a memorable day for me, not only because it was a special holiday for our national hero ANDRES BONIFACIO, but it was also a surprise birthday party for me that was unexpected.
Noong papasok na ako sa restaurant, I noticed na madilim at nakapatay yung ilaw, biglaan na lang ito nagliwanag at sabay-sabay silang sumigaw ng “SURPRISE!!!” I was shocked, surprised at the same time, embarrassed, sa loob-loob ko. “Ano ito? Mukhang nagkamali yata sila ng asalto, hindi ako yung celebrant, napagkamalan lang ba ako?”
Hiyang-hiya ako, namutla at hindi makapagsalita, then I realized that the party was not for my friend but it was for ME. I was really super surprised because my birthday is on DEC. 31. (So pwede niyo pa ipahabol ang inyong regalo, hehehehehe)
My wife then revealed to me na inagahan na niya ang pag-celebrate para hindi ako magduda na may pinaplano siya at the same time, mahirap mag-imbita kapag Dec 31, dahil nga sa putukan at may sari-sariling mga party ang lahat ng pamilya.
It was well attended by many people who made a huge impact in my life. Sa lahat ng seasons ng buhay ko, until I reach the age #chinkwenta, nandoon sila lahat.
ANO ANG TAKE HOME KO SA SURPRISE NA ITO?
HINDI KAYANG BILHIN NG PERA ANG TUNAY NA KAIBIGAN
May mga dumalo na mga kaibigan na mga professional singers, writers, bloggers, speakers na kung babayaran sila ng mga multi-national companies ay aabot ng daang libo para inyong maimbitahan.
But they were all present that night, they took time and made an effort to be there.
Maraming salamat sa mga gumawa ng time.
SA HIRAP AT GINHAWA
Ito yung mga taong nakasama ko sa hirap at ginhawa. Ang mga tunay na kaibigan hindi sila user-friendly. Friendly lang sila kung may mahihita sa iyo. Kapag wala na, waley na friendship. Gone with the wind!
True friends stick with you through thick and thin. They do not leave you and abandon you. May kasabihan nga, “Malalaman mo ang mga tunay mong kaibigan kung ikaw ay walang-wala.”
Maraming salamat sa mga tunay kong kaibigan.
GAGAWA NG PARAAN
May mga taong hindi makapunta, ang ginawa nila sila ay umeffort na nag record ng sarili nilang mga video at nagpadala ng mensahe po sa akin. HIndi naging hadlang ang kanilang kabusyhan sa kanilang trabaho para gumawa ng video. Please abangan ninyo, ire-release ko siya isa-isa, starting tomorrow.
Sa lahat na bumati, maraming salamat.
In other words, ang mga tunay na kaibigan ay walang presyo, dahil sila nabibili at sila ay priceless.
