Ella Chen held the second night of her The Ella Show birthday event in Taipei on June 18, and it looks like her S.H.E. bandmates Selina Jen and Hebe Tien were able to show up after all, much to the delight of fans.

As it was Ella’s exact birthdate, Selina and Hebe had purposely rushed down from their prior work commitments in order to show their support. “We heard about how Ella had been preparing for this show, and she has really put a lot of thought, time, and effort into it,” Selina shared. “It makes me happy to see her ideas and hard work come to fruition.”

Hebe added, “Ella is usually the kind of person who tells us everything, but she was very secretive about what she was planning for this show, which made us even more excited for it.”

When asked what birthday presents they prepared for Ella, they said, “We’ve already prepared a small surprise for her. We hope it’s an unforgettable gift, but we won’t reveal anything more for now!”

The pair also shared about the most memorable birthday surprise they had ever planned for Ella. “There was one year when we planned to gather a bunch of friends and surprise her at home during her day off, but that day, she was suffering from menstrual cramps!” they recalled with a laugh. “To be surprised while you are sick and yet you have to thank everyone, it must have been really difficult for the poor thing!”
