Birthday Surprise!

Yesterday, we sprang a surprise birthday celebration on Pat Chua. On top of that, Steve surprised her with a Volkswagen Beetle, which she apparently has always wanted; not to mention Steve and Tassia’s surprise flight to Melbourne from Singapore to surprise Pat. They have set the bar very high. I had to surreptitiously fetch both [...]
