What A Surprise!

After lunchtime in the office today, I got a call from security saying I have a package and asking where I would like it to be delivered to, the stores or reception. My response was "Are you sure?" because I have not ordered anything lately through the internet and hence was not expecting to receive anything as a return.

The officer at the gates insisted and I kindly replied to send it to reception and I will sign for it. So there I was when I saw the dispatcher holding up a large box and it immediately occured to me that this can't be right and what struck my mind was Song Yia.

She was asking me about lately and could this be my early birthday present? I messaged her to ask her what she had done behind my back. Her response was just simply to open up the package no matter how many times I asked.

As my office room was packed with people, I discreetly open it and there was an enveloped containing the delivery slip. There it states Kodak 10inch Digital Photo Frame and I was jumping for joy. I have always wanted one. Here is a picture of it. I am sure it cost a bomb!

As the present was actually wrapped within the box (yea, sort of a wrapped box within a box), the envelope containing the delivery states, keep your gift a surprise and open it first before opening the envelope. (Too late!)

My colleagues mentioned I should open it during my actual birthday rather than what I did.

Well, I will be busy in the evening before my getaway to Ireland this weekend trying to set it up! Thank you dear!!!!!

It surely made my day!

Glad you like the present. It was not easy keeping this surprise from you. I was so tempted to tell you. lol! I am so proud that I managed to stay quiet.
