Here's a summary of Birthdays in Judah 5 and a Farewell; before the beginning of this semester, during my winter holidays in Brisbane.
Cintia Ho's Birthday 18 June '07
Right after my last (exam) paper last semester... we, Judah 5 celebrated Cintia Ho's (middle) birthday. Dinner at Sunnybank, thereafter a Surprise Birthday Welcome at her home.
Sunny's Friend's Birthday 28 June '07
Friends from Macau and Hong Kong
A birthday celebration on the same day I moved into Sunny and Patrick Chen's home in Toowong.
Joel Soon's Birthday 12 July '07
Again a surprise birthday for one of our Judah 5 brother, Joel Soon. I've known him since primary, high school in Malaysia, and now university in Australia.
After flower presentation (he said "what is this man?"), birthday song, group picture, all of sudden there was a "Sabo" (as in Sabotage).
How would you feel if you were treated like above on your Birthday, furthermore if you're caught unprepared?
Snowman or Santa Claus? Happy 20th Birthday, Joel !
After wash-up, here is your Super Choco-Cheese Cake baked by one of our brother.
Shin Yee's Birthday 27 July '07
Preparation for the Surprise Birthday. Rehearsing the song we gonna sing for her.
Cool... candles, lights glowing in the night... with joyful music in the background.
Then... she arrived... shocked... very happy with little tears... speechless! We sang some songs and wished her Happy Birthday, very gracefully.

Shi Yee and her brothers in Christ
Puay Siong's and Daniel Boon's Birthday 3 August '07
Puay Siong is our Judah 5 unit leader. Thus, we need to impress him, at least a little bit, lol !
Note: The guy with the violin is Sunny, my housemate last month. He's very very good at violin, guitar and piano.
Three brothers blindfolded both Puay Siong and Daniel. Brought them to this place, and when they could see...
Puay Siong's girlfriend was singing gracefully, soo romantic that it even touches my heart lol. Imagine with the violinist and guitarist who played very awesome too!
Not just that, all other brothers and sisters of Judah 5 were background singers at the back.
Each one of us was holding a candle that illuminated the night soo uniquely.
The cake boy came... Happy Birthday Puay Siong and Daniel !
Cutting cake time...
The Birthday Boys with the girls...
and the other males.
John Voon's Farewell 30 July '07
John read through all our farewell messages and questions specially directed to him.
But he couldn't answer things like.. "Which girl you like in Judah 5?" Never mind. I guess we know who she is.
John made a wonderful speech in the end. We were very grateful to what he had brought to all of us, and we were very sad to see him leaving us for good.
A simple, easy-going, well-mannered and English-speaking Hong Kong-born Malaysian parentage Australian resident, John has helped Me in many ways as well. I thanked John for all of that.
I wished him all the best in his studies, future career, future endeavour back in his home country. I congratulated him for being one of the very few choosen to do a course at The University of Hong Kong.Tags: Australia, birthday and farewell.
