Happy birthday to you, Madam Wong.
Last week we published our blog post called “Types of Event Seating Arrangement And Layout“. This week, we include more types of event layout and seating arrangements.

Mr. Leong’s family photo at Gelatissimo in Singapore. You can see Taufiq from Gelatissimo behind, holding both his thumbs up.
While he was having his dinner with his family, we went to get gelato and presented it to him as his “birthday cake”, complete with candles for him to make a wish and blow the candles out. The gelato we got was from the Gelatissimo branch at Singapore Flyer.
As for the candles, we took it with us when we travelled from Penang to Singapore as we wanted to be ready to have a celebration but just deciding on where, when and what details. So we managed to pull off a planned-impromptu surprise (if that makes sense). Trust us as event organisers to jump into action whenever there is an event for us to plan but it is not like we always carry candles everywhere we go. We will make do with what resources we have.
If you noticed from the picture above, the gelato was slightly melted. This is due to the brief walking distance from the Gelatissimo outlet to Mr. Leong’s dining table to surprise him and the heat from the candles contributed to this too. This melting goodness made the gelato even more delicious as it was so tastefully creamy once you put it into your mouth. There was also a short wait for Mr. Leong as he was away taking pictures of the view at Singapore Flyer but once he appears at the table, we began to sing the “Happy Birthday” song. He did not know that the celebration was for him as it was a surprise and held earlier before his birthday. Yes, surprise was successful !

His daughter, Ms. Leong, asked if he remembered to make a wish before he blew out the candles and to that, he replied, “I cannot tell you my wish, if not it might not come true”. So he must have made a wish and may his wishes come true.
The way Gelatissimo showcased their gelato was pretty peculiar, where you can see the whole Nutella bottle, unwrapped candy bars, huge apples and other fruits stacked on top of the gelato in their respective flavours’ trays. Unique, indeed.

Some of you might be wondering, “What is gelato ? It looks like ice cream to me”. Gelato (plural : gelati) technically is Italian ice cream; whereby it is softer and smoother as compared to ice cream, with less fat contents and air contents. Less air contents means that you get more of the product in one scoop which translates to more flavour and value for money in that one scoop. The beauty of gelato is that good gelato is made out of natural ingredients with no artifical flavours, colouring and ingredients. At Gelatissimo, their gelato is made fresh everyday by their artisan gelato makers with the best, natural ingredients and they have won many awards, which can be seen from their website.
