I’m spending my birthday in Shanghai, away from my family.
But my team has made sure I feel the love still, by throwing me a second birthday surprise.
The first was in office last Friday, when they tried to take me out to lunch at a new place. But the receptionist accidently spilled the beans, spoiling the surprise. I didn’t mind, of course, but my team was.
So, perhaps to make up for it, they bought me a cake today and burst into the press room with a hearty birthday song.
Unfortunately, I was on the phone with a reporter, discussing a news angle on a crackling line. They had to stop singing and be absolutely quiet until the call was over.
Hilarious for me, but you could see disappointment written all over their faces. LOL!
A second fail.
I love this team SO much!
Meanwhile, trade friends have sent me flowers both back in Singapore (they didn’t know I was away) and in Shanghai. So much love!
