Dad's Surprise 70th Birthday Party | Oriental Palace Quezon City + Money Box

This is a long overdue entry. My dad celebrated his 70th (Chinese) birthday last February 23, 2020. It was one of the last few parties that we were able to attend before everyone was required to stay home (government mandated) due to Covid-19. 

45 years and counting!

Dad's Surprise 70th Birthday Celebration 

I already lost a couple of pounds in that photo lol

It was really hard to surprise my dad because we were almost always together every single day (pre-pandemic days). I drove my parents around every where- medical appointments and treatments, groceries and other stuff. When my sister planned the surprise birthday party for my dad, I thought that it will not work. But it did!


Dad was really surprised when he entered the venue (as seen in the video). Siblings, relatives, and friends closest to his heart were all there. The video showed how happy he was that day. He really thought that it would just be the 6 of us. Surprise... surprise!
