What got your started with Music/DJ-ing?

What is the happiest moment in your Life?
“My sister has lived in the UK for 10 years and a few years ago we decided to arrange a surprise for my mom. Nicola (my sister), booked her ticket 4 months in advance and we kept things on the downlow and tried our hardest NOT to let “the cat out the bag”. Throughout the months my Mom hinted things like “wish Nicola was here for Christmas” & “I wonder what restaurant Nicola would want to go to if she was here”. We certainly thought my mom has smelt a rat by all the secretive emailing and sms-ing. Well…. The day came & we headed off to the airport to fetch a "friend" from JHB (Yes I had to say JHB as this was where she was flying from).
My Happiest moment was seeing the tears of joy on my moms face after 4 months of planning & keeping a secret. In utter surprise, my Dad didn’t recognise her & decided to extend his hand and say “Hi, I'm Jarryd's Dad" to which she replied.. "DAD ITS ME.. NICOLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
