Happy birthday, Pandu Nugraha!!!
Yippie!!! Last Wednesday was Pandu’s 26th birthday.. And as usual, as I did every year, till the last second to his birthday I never prepare something special.. Hahahaha.. Yet a present or a surprise. Until last Monday just acrossed in my mind that he needs a new watch since he lost one 2 years ago.. Actually I know what type of watch he really want to have, exactly the same as the lost one.. I have asked him to buy another brand but all he said was “Ngga, aku cuma mau beli yang persis sama kayak yang ilang..” so, there you go.. In the other hand it makes me easier hihihihi..
Knowing what he wants exactly doesn’t mean I prepare those stuff far far away.. Not! I just ordered the thing on Monday to my officemate hahahah and it came on Tuesday night :D. Surprise??? No, we never do such a thing before on each other’s birthday, not even saying birthday greetings right on 12am. Some other year we prefer to go sleep rather than wake up until midnight just to say happy birthday! Weird enough? Yes! We know that we are not a romantic couple, and we never try to be one.. That’s just SO NOT US.. Hihihihi 😀
The other thing that came to my mind was I think I could make a presence at his office on the day, no meeting and deadline for me that day. So I texted his officemate to hand a help that I am going to be there on Wed. What would I do there? Please stay away from a surprise with a cake and candles.. No, Pandu would mad at me if I do such thing.. Hahahaha, once he said that it’s not important to blowing a candle at this stage of age.. So, I won’t buy a cake though. I just wanna be there on his special day (though he never think that birthday is a special day). After a long talk with Ismed (Pandu’s officemate) I decided to be the at lunch time.
So I went to Senayan City at lunch time and make an appointment with Ismed and Meta at Debenhams before we go to foodcourt. Ismed told me that the graphic team gonna have lunch there. I came to the foodcourt just in time Pandu queued at KFC to treat his friends, it took some time up to about 20minutes, I was already waiting. So when Pandu finally came to the table, here it is.. Surprise!!! He was like surprised and his facial expression was like “How come on this earth that you are here now?” Hahahahaha.. I know he never thought that I’ll be there, like never before.. Like the other birthday moment, I straightly gave him the present and push him to open it just because I wanna know his reactions.. So there he was, open up the wrap and.. “Hah??? Ini jam aku yang ilang” if I can captured his expressions, it was like he won a billion dollars on a quiz, then I know he was totally happy..
He got another surprise from the graphic team, a new jacket.. Why jacket? Because the team hate his super ugly not-proper-enough-yet-wearable-old-jacket he had. Hahahahaha.. It was blue and suits him properly.. He just couldn’t hide his happiness, and at least I know that it was one of his happiest day.. Ever.. Hihihih 😀
Thank you Ismed, Meta, Akbar for your help.. Thank you Mas Patrick, Afika, Edo, Taufan and Karina for your presence.. Thank you Graphic Team + Wulan for the birthday gift, and thank you everyone for the greetings and the prayer.. May God bless you all..
Once again, happiest birthday love.. You are 26 now, just being who you are.. Be better, be wiser.. There are tons of words that I want to say, but you know deep down inside, all the prayer goes to you… To us.. To our future.. This might be your last birthday as a single man, coz for the rest of your life starting next year you’re gonna have it with me.. Hahahaha 😀 I love you..
