Being such good friends with Biboy, Drayco and the other kids thought they should throw him a surprise birthday party.

Kasi po, wala po silang handa sa birthday niya. Kaya nag-ambagan po kami ng kaibigan ko at pinsan ko para ibili siya ng tinapay at cupcake. Nakita namin na masaya talaga siya at na-surprise talaga siya,” the young boy revealed.
