Another Year of Fabulous Pt. 217:47
In my previous post, I had shared with you all, highlights of my birthday morning and promised a part two. Having been surprised from all the morning events, I was extremely grateful and overall just content with plans of chilling and enjoying the remainder of the day. Little did I know that this wouldn't have been the case *face palms*. I was informed around sometime after two that afternoon that we were all going out that very evening, and I had to be ready for 6pm. So we all got ready around that time and proceeded to leave. Now luckily my eyes were quick, and in this instance, swift enough to see Jason type Ming Court into the GPS. Muhahahahaha!! From this, I figured of course that we were going for Chinese or Japanese.
Just to fill you all in, Ming Court is one of many International Drive Orlando Restaurants. Situated on two acres and surrounded by one of the most beautiful garden settings, the restaurant features an extraordinary selection of Dim Sum, Sushi, Wok and Char-Grill cuisine. I believe they are true to their word. In that, whether it is planning an intimate dining occasion overlooking the Koi pond and gardens, dining out with family and friends, or if you need private dining or meeting spaces in Orlando, Ming Court will be one of those spots to remember.
We ordered and ate food which might I add, was great. After our table was cleared, I soon saw the waitress approaching me with gifts, all of varying sizes, and of course a box I had already figured to be a cake. The cake I had figured as Jason and Nickie had left me earlier and gone on the road, and returned with the box, however, it was so concealed, I had no idea as to the type of cake that lay waited me. At this point, I was not only slightly embarrassed, but overwhelmed. One, because of the stares that were now headed in my direction in the then busy restaurant, and I honestly thought that the gift I got in the morning was it, and was already satisfied.
I was given the option of opening my gifts or cutting my cake. My choice was that of cutting the cake. I was elated when I saw the then “biggest secret” amongst everyone revealed. To the left of the cake was an image of myself, and on the right were the words “Happy Birthday Tian”. It was gorgeous to say the least. It turned out to be a vanilla cake with raspberry filling, and it was so soft and moist it tasted like my own slice of heaven. At this point, and even in remembering the cupcakes earlier, the only thought that came to mind was “Jason and Nickie really outdid themselves this time”. Next was the opening of the gifts that now stood before me.
In addition to my sandal which I absolutely love, I received in this specific order, a Micheal Kors watch (white and rose gold), that I had been killing myself over for as long as I can remember, a large bottle of Nuvo, and last but by no means least an iPad 2. By this point I could hold it in no longer, I was in tears. This I could no longer contain, but I do remember feeling like the luckiest girl alive at that very moment and that to me was just amazing. I am truly appreciative of all the wonderful people that surround me, and feel absolutely blessed. This is by no means as a result of the gifts received because they were never expected, but what got me was the overall thought process and effort it must have taken to make my special day a success, and trust me when I say, that it was!
Overall, it was a beautiful experience and for it all, I give thanks to my two wonderful planners. You guys made my day!!
