Model Answer:

No doubt, surprises and good news always delight a person and bring a huge smile on the face. Though there has been many surprising moments in my life.

What it was?
But one that I am going to share here is the surprise: that my sister gave on my 16th birthday. My elder sister, who has been living in Canada for a long time now, couldn’t travel to India for almost 5 years and without any intimation.

Where it happened? and When it happened?
She arrived on my 16th birthday, and I was on cloud nine to see her on the doorsteps as she entered; she gave me a warm hug and wished me happy birthday and handed over a parcel to me as I opened the parcel, I couldn’t believe my eye because it was the latest iPhone handset that I was dreaming for a long time I was super happy on this day because nothing could have been a better gift for me on this special day.

But this was not it because my sister had already arranged a celebration in the city’s most expensive restaurant where she had already invited all the friends and relatives. I was so happy and grateful to my sister, who made all these arrangements.

We all enjoyed the party to the fullest, and it gave me the chance to share my happiness with everyone. During this celebration, many photographs were clicked, and I still have those and whenever I checkout these photographs, I recall the memories and the surprise that my sister gave.

Overall, it was a wonderful surprise that my sister gave and I can never forget.
