Celebrating a special day at the Office.

Today is Friday, the last day of the week, which also happens to be a payday since the 15th falls on a Saturday. No matter how hard I tried to make this day as ordinary as possible, I cannot deny the fact that today is an extraordinary day. I can only blame Facebook and Friendster on why our friends and colleagues know what is happening in our lives. Now, all my friends know that today is my birthday.

I don’t usually go to work during my birthdays. I don’t want to give my colleagues a chance to make fun of me and make me the center of attention so I would rather file for a vacation leave even if I will just spend the day at home, in retrospect. I simply can not stand my co-workers pestering me for a blow-out or a pizza treat. I may give in that easily hehehe. Not today, though. I decided to go to work for a change. And I managed to get through it unscathed. In fact, it was a great day!

I never expected it. My colleagues never gave a sign that they were planning for something. And just when I thought that this was just another humdrum day, it ended with a pleasant surprise.

I am not posting this to fish for compliments; I just want to thank my team mates for their efforts to make this day a memorable one for me. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your friendship, love and respect. You guys are the best!

Inside the birthday card are short messages from my teammates. And yeah, the card is playing a "happy birthday" tune.

Here's the yummy cake, but it's not as sweet as my colleagues :)

Meet my beautiful co-workers: Angel, Mitch, Kat, Grace, Bea and Meg. I should be paid for this hehehe.

Oops... Be careful with the balloons. They can still be used for another birthday celebration.
