The Element of Surprise

My beloved mother turns 75 this Wednesday (May 30).

But 2 weeks prior to her birthday, my sister and I have been hatching a surprise for her.

Our plan was for my sister to come home unannounced and show up at the condo!

But her work schedule was too hectic.

I didn't want to burden her so I just kept waiting for her to tell me when she was able to come home.

That is if she would ever make it.

Last Friday, she told me with much anticipation she was able to clear all her work load so she could come home, today!

So D & I were up early to first hear the 8:30am Mass then proceeded to the airport to fetch her.

At 12:40pm, her Cebu Pacific flight from HK landed at NAIA 3 on time.

We first had lunch at the airport.

Then took a cab to the condo to spring the surprise on our unsuspecting parents.

To make the long story short, our parents were shocked and quite surprised.

Our mother shed tears of joy. There were a lot of hugs, embraces and kisses.

Everyone is happy that my sister will be here for one week.

Our plan was a success!

Hurray! :D
