Four days have passed and yet I still can’t get over the romantic reunion I’ve witnessed last Friday. My dear friend, Kathy, celebrated her 29th birthday and I bet it was one, if not the most, memorable birthday she ever had. Without a hint, her OFW husband surprised her with the biggest gift of all. Himself..fresh from the airport.
To begin with, I feel honored and pleased to have been part of this big surprise initiated by her mischievous husband who was still at KSA when he sought our help. Albeit tough, the brainstorming session with my fellow connivers and with the OFW husband was fun. It involved a very long email thread and endless (and careful) yahoo chat messages. Even when we were still planning, I was already teary-eyed and so excited. I knew that it will be an emotional reunion. Truly, it really was. And I’m just glad that I was able to capture the precious moments via my camphone. The emotions and reactions were truly priceless. Our adlib and acting efforts were effective (as effective as the best acne pill there is). We’re just so glad that the big birthday surprise was a success. And no doubt, Kathy and Amiel were the happiest at that moment.
