How to Prepare a Surprise Visit


– Yourself
– Your friends
– Your lenient boss
– Your company’s well-established Human Resources (HR) system
– Your object of surprise


– Your parents’ immediate visit


– In order to make it happen, do not get surprised yourself! In other words, you can’t afford to be overwhelmed with the surprise you create on your own.
– Be sure to get the right friends of your object of surprise. Apparently, calling them at the very last minute while they were confused with the surprise plan itself might, well, cause the hectic schedule.
– Never create any hints that would evoke any suspicious assumptions from your object of surprise. If you can’t pick up the phone because you are on your way to surprise him, get a better excuse rather than saying “Sorry, dear. I was asleep, didn’t hear you call”, while the truth is that you did not get a seat on the bus all the way from Cengkareng to Blok M.


– Let the pictures speak for themselves.
