*Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday Dear Lady Elle, you’re going to New York City! New York City!!!!
Yesterday was my 2oth birthday and I had a wonderful time with a few beautiful and exciting surprises from my beautiful Mimi (mother) and my lover Mr. Bird!
On a beautiful birthday morning, I woke up refreshed and later Mr. Bird treated me for breakfast at our favorite Waffle House restaurant. Yes, we do have our favorite waffle house because most waffle houses are dirty, old, and full of roaches. Our waffle house is clean, fresh, and friendly.
After Waffle House, Mimi, Mr.Bird and I went to the jewelry store and sold our old gold and bought new charms for my Pandora bracelet. My mimi bought me a Statue of Liberty charm. At first, I was wondering why my mimi decided to buy the Statue of Liberty charm until she revealed a huge surprise that we are going to……NEW YORK CITY!!! I got really excited about the news because I always wanted to go or maybe live in a big city like New York. Since I will be going there this weekend, I shall decide whether I should live there when the future comes.
With my Statue of Liberty charm, Mr. Bird wanted to buy another Pandora charm for me and I chose the charm with pink gems with a peace sign. I chose it because the pink gems signifies my father, my grandfather, and my other family members who were affected by cancer. My father died of cancer when I was only three years old. My grandfather died few years ago with prostate cancer. I hate cancer. Sometimes I fear that I may later have cancer too, but I try my best to avoid that thought. I cannot let that thought get to me.
After we went to the jewelry store, Mr. Bird wanted to take me somewhere and it was indeed somewhere. Somewhere I did not recognize ,but there was a beautiful house. He parked in front of the house and told me to wait in the car. He went inside the house. For the past two minutes I was wonder why we were there. Mr. Bird came out of the house and escorted me inside the house. The house looked very antique doll-like house. I was still unsure of who’s house we were in, until FairyCakeMother showed up with a beautiful chocolate cake.
The cake was a three layer chocolate cake with a beautiful trail of colorful exotic flowers. Here are the pictures:
It looks beautiful, right? I love chocolate and I was so excited to attack that cake! Chocolate is my heavenly weakness. Mr. Bird and I later had a huge slice of that heavenly cake while we were watching one of my favorite movies, Forrest Gump. I love that movie. Forrest Gump and Jenny are my favorite movie couples. To me, that movie taught me about the meanings of life and unconditional love.
I had a wonderful birthday and I very excited about going to New York! I have already made a list of the places I want to go. Here it is:
1. Statue of Liberty
2. Tiffany & Co. Where Audrey Hepburn stood in front of from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
4. New York Square
5. Carrie Bradshaw’s Apartment From Sex and the City
6. 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
There is a lot more , but I am going to leave it at six.
Now that I have joined the 20’s club. I want to say that I have a very strong ambitious future for myself and I need to work hard for it. Also, I am now writing one of books called, Gifted. I am not going to reveal the plot because I do not want my ideas to be published by somebody else. Everyone will have to randomly wait for my future-going-to-be-published book. Just stay tuned. haha
