I think the last time I had a birthday in Hong Kong was exactly 10 years ago. Because my birthday is in October, I’ve always spent my birthday while I was in school. And This year, I finally came home.
On the day of my birthday (25th), my mother surprised me by organizing a surprise party at a lounge with my friends in HK. I was super shocked because I didn’t really tell many people I came back to HK. I don’t know how my mom pulled it off, but she did a great job! She even had a friend who’s a DJ, and he did the music for us that night!
Thanks mom! Love ya!
even my grandma came out for a little!
After part 1, celebration with mom, I had a part 2, celebration with dad. On saturday (27th) my dad wanted us to host a dinner for my and his friends. We had a dinner party of 20 people total, however, because we only have room for 10 on our dining table, we did 2 sittings. The first group would sit down to eat, while the second group would set the table, serve the food, pour drinks and what not. After the first group is done eating, they switch roles. It was a great and fun night!
