Last November 2 was my teammate GH’s birthday so we got him this “banana cake” as a joke because he loves bananas. 😂
But we had a real cake for him too. The bananas were just to troll him. 😂
So later in the afternoon during tea time, my teammate asked me to distract the birthday boy while they went to get the cake ready.
So I opened a couple of excel files and made everything look more complicated than it was and asked him to come over as I had a question. After a while, they came up behind us with the cake.
“Wait, is this real?” he asked, pointing to my screen.
“No!” I laughed.
“No wonder!” He cried. “I was wondering why you were asking about a simple vlookup question!” 😂
Just then, our MDs and directors showed up. They had seen YM with the cake and decided to leave their meeting room to join us. So awfully nice of them! They happened to be in Singapore for a business trip but they’re actually based in different countries.
After the group pic we all went to the pantry to eat the cake.
While we were in there, our functional MD happened to be passing by so he went into the pantry as well and joined us. What a big boss-studded birthday! 😄
