My friend, Razan, and I always talk about going to Rice for lunch… So we made it at last yesterday!
The plan that I leave work and she pick me up around 5:30 so we can have late lunch/early dinner… or what some call “linner”. So at 5:30pm I got into her car and headed to the avenues. I kept thinking what to order since I was starving… remembering the menu and all. Anyways we got there and the place was kinda empty, it was just us with a couple of families. We sat outside and ordered food. I had the Baby Chicken -boneless- and Razan order the Hamour Sayadiya. The food arrived and we dig right into it.. yumm!
At Rice, when you’re done.. the dessert and tea is served right away. We got Muhalabiya and some sort of Arabic dessert with tea. Razan did not touch it, I was telling her to try some and she was like no… and she talked to the waitress. I was like hmmmm I think she is gonna pay and asked to have the bill. Then out came a loud “Happy Birthday” music playing… now picture this, Rice is located in the Avenues Phase II food court. Its an open area, and near by many restaurants and magic planet. People where looking for the source of music as well as me… I was like hmmm who’s birthday is it and I saw Rice waiters holding it, I looked at the other table and automatically assumed it was their little boy’s birthday I smiled and sipped more tea… but wait a minute the cake skipped them, and… its heading toward US! WHAT! Its another surprise!!! OH MY GOD! I am not the kind that like the public attention but the gesture was too nice I was gonna jump over the table and hug Razan! Hahaha! People from outside Rice stood and some waved *blushes*… Razan!! I can’t believe you did this!!!! I bet it was the perfect KODAK moment to see my so red face! Loud music in public and for me! I covered my face hahaha…
Shortly after Razan gave me a Baroue bag with a box in it… she’s like accept this please, its nothing! Just a gag gift that I hope you like… I open it and it was iPod Touch (which I will tell you what happened afterwards in the Avenues). Its AWESOME! I was actually thinking of getting one! That girl is full of surprises! First it was lunch, then the cake, then the iPod! Razan!! THANK YOU :-*
