24 is not just a number

It was my 24th birthday two days ago.
So here is how it went like:
On this very special day,
I was to go buy train tickets with my friends and I was told to not have dinner at outside as we (the roomies and I) were going to steamboat at home. (said my roomie xD)
Without feeling suspicious, I bought it 
This was the first trap I fell into

As soon as I got home, there was nothing,
No steamboat, no dinner and nothing at all 
So me and a friend of mine whined about how hungry we were.
Then, she suggested to have dinner with another bunch of friends instead.
I didn't think much about it as I was already starving like hell :/
So we walked to our friends' house which is just next few doors away from our house.

Once I got into their house, I saw they were preparing steamboat (this time is FOR REAL!) 😋
and there was the decorating banner that says"happy birthday" lying on the table.
And as they wished, I did not have any suspicion before this.
I was totally unaware of their "intention".

After having the meal,
they came up with the second "trap".
They told me that they forgot to buy my birthday cake and wanted to take me to the bakery to buy it.
TBH I felt fishy about it but I still went out anyway. 
Then, I was convinced that they would buy me a Secret recipe cake on the next day
(like WHAT)

So at the end, we just grabbed some drinks from the store and went home without the birthday cake.

I went home feeling surprised!
They were holding a birthday cake and started singing me birthday song.
Meaning to say,
For all the while I was "lured" to stay outside, the remaining friends at home were actually busy decorating.
Well it was kinda awkward when people sing you birthday song so what I did was that I SANG WITH THEM 
Instead of just standing there like a dork.

However, we did not eat the cake.
We ate watermelon instead.
LOL I swear it was the most unforgettable experience of eating a watermelon.
The watermelon wasn't cut into pieces but was cut into 2 big halves.
We just use spoons to scoop it out.

The most "tragic" moment came afterwards.
They gave me a birthday present.
It was about a the size of a sneakers box but when I opened it,
There were shredded papers covered a small box and it was wrapped by like, uncountable layers of used exam papers 😖😖😖
I found it hard to unwrap cause my friend used the super sticky cellophane tape.
Nonetheless, I managed to unwrap it after 999 hours.

Look what they got me
This present came in handy because I was thinking to buy it so long ago

I'm truly blessed for having companions on my every birthday.
To express my gratitude:
"‪Guess I've reached the age of realising how companion and sense of belonging matter more than material things do. No any fanciness is needed on this special day, as long as it could be well spent with the right ones. Thanks for making me feel like I was home y'all. I was truly moved."

Not to forget, BIG THANKS to whoever wished me happy birthday
