DANGGG !!!

I got punk'd by one of my friends ! DANGGG !! I so so so don't like that kind of feeling . But since it was for my birthday , well , I forgive you Yi hong .

My friends ( Ee Teen , Boon Siew and Yi hong ) threw me a surprise on the night before my birthday ... Why am i only posting it now you ask ? Well , I've finally recovered from it .

So the surprise started like this .

It was the 21st of July 2008 , approximately around 7.45pm . There I was sitting in front of the computer , giving my " 19 year of bygones " post the finishing touches . So , type type click click ...

Suddenly , the phone rang.

I answered the phone . And , heck , it was so damn obvious that Ee Teen was at the other end of the line . The other funny thing was she kinda blew her own cover . I guess her call here to my house was to see if i was at home .

Instead of asking for me , she asked for my sister . But , I've known and heard her voice from form 2 . And her voice leaves a mark in your head once you've heard it . So , its kinda hard to just not recognise it when you hear it . Our conversation on the phone went something like this :

EeTeen : Hello ... ( I knew it was ee teen already )
Shi yi : Hello ...
EeTeen : Is Shiiiiiiiii...Rui there ? ( I was 100% sure it was Ee teen )
Shiyi : ........ * thinking why is Ee Teen asking for my sis * ... Shiii Rui aah , she went for tuition .
Ee Teen : Oh , never mind la .
Shiyi : ok ... ( the phone call ends here )

From the phone call , i knew something was going to happen before the clock strikes 12 tonight .

Tampinese have a tradition . We would gather and go to the birthday boy/girl's house at 12 midnight to give him/her a birthday surprise .

This time would be the same . So , I thought .

At around 8.oopm , I felt the need to tell someone that i've uncovered a surprise . Yi hong , who 's currently in Australia , was the only one online . I confided in him . Our MSN chat was something like this , i remember only parts of it , didn't save it in history :

Shiyi : eh , Yi hong ah ... i think ee teen , sze wen and boon siew might be going to give me a surpirse later le ..
Yi hong : Haha ... How do you know ?
Shiyi : I'm not very sure one la . . . but i think should be lo , just now ee teen called , she didn't ask for me , but for my sister . . . and then its damn obvious that it is her .
Yi hong : Shiyi , you are so bad , why you so clever , should just let them surprise you ..
Shiyi : I can't blame myself for being so clever one ma ...
Yi hong : sweat ....
Shiyi : Nevermind la ... haha .. just act act a bit later la . haha .
Yi hong : Haha . So bad la you . ... ( then he said something , criticizing my acting skills )
Shiyi : people call me queen of the movie screens ok .
Shiyi : Later when they come and surprise me , i call my sis to video cam my acting skills . then i send it to you . you judge yourself . haha .
Yi hong : Sweat again ...
Shiyi : eh , i feel like giving them a counter surprise le . Like they come and surprise me , then i surprise them back . i feel like buying a pizza and set the tables for them . when they come , its like i'm already waiting for them to feast at my house .
Yi hong : okok . can also . not bad . You set all the cups and plates ready . haha . you so sure they coming to surprise you .
Shiyi : mmm .... not sure . If they really come , then ok lo . If they never come , then , the pizza i eat my self . the drinks i drink myself also lo . no harm done .
Yi hong : haha . ( he then dissapears for a few 5 to 10 minutes )
Shiyi : eh , don't tell them la . let me try surprising them back la. this one time ma . We never initiate a counter surprise before . ( and i continued like that while he was away , coz instinct told me he would rat me out )

when he came back

Yi hong : shiyi !! Go now if you want to surprise them !
Yi hong : NOW !!
Shiyi : *shocked* but i haven't bath and i still haven't finish my post le .
Yi hong : Oh ... Then , nevermind . Continue blogging la ... Enjoy yourself !

That was the end of our chat . Not heeding Yi hong's advice , i continued taking my own sweet time typing away , walking in and out the room ... having in mind that i have a few hours more to midnight .

At around 9 pm , I finally clicked the mouse to publsih my post . " Ok , this leaves me with bathing and buying the pizza , " i thought , smilling away at my master mind ruse .

But somehow , I continued staring at the monitor to see if i made any major mistakes in my post * scroll scroll scroll * ...

All of a sudden , out of no where , I see Ee Teen and Boon Siew .

My mind went blank .
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
What's this
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
why are they here already
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
what about my counter surprise plan
.
.
.

.
DANGGG !!


I didn't know how i should have reacted . I seeked for something more natural and comforting to me . And so , I turned my face back to the monitor of the computer and started scrolling again ...

That was stupid and slow of me to react that way.

So that was it . The most embarrasing yet surprising birthday bombshell i've gotten so far .

And i was right , Yi hong ratted me out . Turns out , he gave a call to ee teen when he suddenly dissapeared from the chat room .

Thank you very much Boon Siew and Ee Teen for the time , sweat and effort both of you spent preparing the surprise . Thank you for bringing the rambutans , durians , dragon fruit , mangosteens , papayas , peanuts , sweet-sour stuff , junk food , pandan chiffon cake and Vanhoutten Macademia chocolates .
