My family has got to be the most predictable unit ever. You can almost always be sure of what we will do next. Surprise celebrations are almost unheard of. But it is what I decided and planned for my Dad’s 70th birthday. He really thought that it would only be us, his kids and grandchild, and of course my mom, who would be celebrating with him. He was in for a big surprise when we brought him to a restaurant and had our relatives, his step family whom we all haven’t seen for a really long time, and his former colleagues greet him and give him best wishes. I asked my brother who is in media to put together a simple audio-visual production for him.
I am glad he was so happy that day. My brother and I seldom do this for our folks. They are really very simple people, and it takes us for them to experience “life” outside their home.
Happy birthday again, Dad!
