Fangirl Diaries: A cake for you, Ken Suson
Knowing you fancy cakes so much, I knew I would I want to give you one one day. If fortunate enough, I’d like to give one on your actual birthday. I already knew when, but I was not sure how.
Months of anticipating turned to weeks and I just saw myself ordering a minimalist chocolate cake with a cat design. Bitterly thinking I could eat it anyways if it won’t get to you.
With the littlest of luck, I turned to Twitter and Ken, was I overwhelmed? It came to my rescue weeks before your birthday. The perfect place where I found people who share the same love for you.
A project called 24 CAKES FOR KEN SUSON was formed through the collaboration of different SB19 fanbases within the A’Tin fandom. It is a project dedicated to you. To celebrate your previous birthdays when you lack its very symbol —a cake. I had a tiny glimpse of hope that I might actually be able to fulfill this personal goal of mine. I signed up to the project with the help of my then found A’Tin friends.
I only wanted to show my appreciation to you. For being my inspiration during the tough times. To give back a portion of the happiness that you were able to partake on me. I never knew my simple cake would be a part of something bigger. Just as it should for someone as worthy as you.
I am grateful to be given a part in this birthday project! Here it is, my birthday message and a cake for nine year old Felip Jhon.
These cakes are just symbols of how loved you are. I wish people can be more open to knowing your story and how you made it to where you are now. Years ago, you would celebrate your birthday with pancit canton after playing basketball with your friends. You would be overwhelmed with a simple store-bought cake given to you as a surprise. Now, you have so many people celebrating your birthday from all-over the world.
You deserve all this and more. You deserve all the love, Ken.
I hope you get to use all your blessings for the right things as well.
