Kerry-Ann Quallo Casserly arrived at her surprise 40th birthday party three hours after her invited guests, proving yet again, she was not an easy nut to crack.

Her friends had bought shoes, clothes, cake, provided a venue, plus a band for entertainment, but one thing they couldn't do was to get the Royalton White Sands director of sales to leave her office last Wednesday night.

As is normal, the travel and tourism professional, who is well respected by her peers, refused to leave a task incomplete as she planned a romantic vacation with hubby, Simon Casserly.

"By 9 p.m., the boss, Armando Pizzuti decided to put her out of the office," friend and staff Andre Hudson tells Outlook of Cassserly's late arrival.

When Quallo Casserly arrived at Robin's Steakhouse in Montego Bay to meet her husband, several friends were there awaiting her arrival.

"I bawled, people," she stated on her Facebook page a day later.

"What a surprise! They even got me clothes and shoes! I am blessed to have a great husband, great friends, and great team members. Thank you, Jesus ! Thank you, Royalton White Sands - a great team led by a great leader, Armando Pizzuti! Stayce Ingram and Andre Hudson, thank you! Dave and Marcia, thank you! Tamika Higgins, thank you. Robin Russell, big thank you! Thank you, Simon Casserly!

"Thank you to my Fundamentals family. Thank you to my sales and marketing team - Tanisha Lee Shirley and Tracy Munroe!!"

She never once forgot to thank Jesus.

"Thank you, Jesus. Truly surprised. I felt like it was my wedding day again."
