Model Answer:
I have recently turned to 25 and last year my family and friends arranged a birthday that became a remarkable day for me and I will always remember this birthday. It was my 24th birthday and I was in the final year of my University. I had an exam approaching and had no plan to visit my hometown and celebrate my birthday. But my friends planned to surprise me on my birthday and also asked my parents and siblings to join them on that day.

I went outside at around 9 pm. And returned after an hour and noticed that my parents and siblings have come to the house I stay with my friends and classmates. I knew that my family members came to celebrate my birthday. I was bit confused as I had no preparation for that and I felt a bit lost about the whole event.

When the clock ticked to 12.01 am, my friends started unfurling their surprises for me and that included a four storied cake, numerous gifts and music festival. I enjoyed this birthday occasion thoroughly and to my surprise, my friends invited some of their cousins as well.

I was mostly speechless and continuously thanked my friends for the great preparation they did for my birthday celebration. I spent the night with my friends, we watched a movie at late night and finally I went to sleep in the early morning.

This is a very surprise party for me and the friends I was talking about took a great burden to arrange everything to celebrate this occasion. They even invited my parents and siblings so that they can also be the part of the whole celebration. It was quite a different birthday celebration for me and I remember it very well. The gifts that I got on that were very expensive including Kindle Fire, iPod, Gymnasium instrument and many other gifts. I was very much touched by the whole event and it took me by surprise. That is why this has become a part of my memory and I can recall the whole event very clearly.
