Proud of own photoshopping for this picture that include a vintage tinge!
I thought the vintage will look best at this kinda summer outdoor scenes,
and if you are interested to learn how to do as well, you can take a look at this person's guide .
Hope it helps for you.
I believe you saw a couple of entries back that the group planned a surprise birthday party for the october babies,
yixiong, joseph and myself, whom we all have birthdays just 2 days apart from each other.
Didn't exactly go into details then, so I'll do it now.
One year has passed since the last time the group gave me a heartfelt surprise on my 21st birthday,
and ah! I think I didn't blog about my 21st last year!
But in anycase, last year's surprise was equally awesome,
they got a chauffeur to specially came downstairs to pick me up to somewhere secretive,
and gathered ALL my loved ones from everywhere together,
including getting my parents to tell a white lie (which apparently they did a very good job on it),
but my adorable granny leaked out a bit by calling me accidentally to find my sister,
and acted like there was a bad reception when she realised i was the one on the line.
This year's was something different, and yes, another surprise planned by the group!
I can't say how thankful am i to have met these angels in my life.
You guys are an awesome rocking bunch and yes, you know you're loved by me!
Here was what happened for that quiet and simple afternoon…
TIME CHECK: 3.30PM
I was told that we were going t have a pinic.
Poots came to give me a lift to a secret part of Botanical Gardens,
which apparently located at another far end of the park,
and not entered by the normal route.
Normally I would ask the girlfriends if they needed help,
or if whoever are delegated with different task and what's mine as well.
But this time, I followed suit, as I wasn't much involved in the planning due to busy schedule the previous week,
and leney was exceptionally mum about this outing as well :p
Nothing was told to me,
neither was I aware if there was something different that day,
I just know there will be a picnic.
Upon reaching, I was persuaded to wear a blind fold,
and that's when i knew the group was up to something!
Me with poots, Joseph with Apple.
Heh! We were led to the park with our blind folds on,
and along the way Poots kept laughing and telling me that people who saw the scene was giggling away,
well, i would have too! hahaha
Yi xiong was the first to reach,
and when i was browsing the photos, i can't help but burst out laughing at this one.
As they were still setting up the place, YX was led to that bench to wait,
and he looked as though he was meditating/ rather kidnapped at put at a lonely corner. :p
Well. he shifted shortly!
More pictures along the way…
the group got ready a tripod and camera.
Preparing to give the surprise with the colourful balloons and party hats!
Taken before we reached.
And the surprise was going to be unveiled soon..
The cute groupie preparing..
And finally its time to unveil…
They all rushed forward shouting loudly heard happy birthdays and we were presented with balloons!
The groupie sure knows how to make each of us feel loved. Teehee
Food was prepared with effort and love by each of them,
and we began feasting shortly after the surprise and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon under the sunny sky.
Love this quiet part of botanical gardens!
Special props :p
Balloons, stereo set, ice box.
They did an AWESOME job preparing for the picnic!

Delicious quiches specially made by caleen
The dogs came to party too
Selene says, " who says afro can't wear specs?"
Pupu, Awwww <3
And smart looking velvet <3
Apple was in -charged of getting KOI bubble tea for each of us,
and she actually asked the individual of us for our favourite bubble tea flavour and called the clementi branch to order.
Guess when she reached she took the plastic bags straight and came,
just to find out that there were 7 cups missing!
Leney being our great negotiator, called KOI up to make a complain and demand compensation.
Look at how Jar was impressed by her! and we took videos of her great nego skills,
but hahah, will keep that private and confidential
I must say,
Kudos to KOI and its service!
The lady boss actually came all the way down specially just to deliver the 7 missing cups to us.
VERY GOOD SERVICE!
More pictures below, so do wait for them to load and enjoy!
CAKE CUTTING TIME!
Poots got us 3-inch sin expensive chocolate cake!
She knows I have been wanting to try this, awww
birthday people shall get special birthday treatments (yes, afro)
Love you guys! <3
Did i mention i was not feeling well for the past few days,
and was down with a cough and a flu.
the groupie and myself actually spent two nights at MBS a few days back,
and I believe it must be due to the haze and the excessive inhale of it at sky garden.
