Filed Under (Detroit Michigan, Florida, Orlando, Travelling, USA, World Souvenirs) by Janet on 15-02-2009


Good morning Dearies!!!

Me with Babies Sportie, Cutie & Smartie Celebrating Cutie\'s 2nd Birthday with her American Carrot Birthday Cake at Quality Inn International in Orlando, Florida USA

HAPPY Belated Birthday to Baby Cutie on her 2nd Birthday which was actually yesterday on 14 February, 2009 – Valentine’s Day!

Here’s our Birthday Baby Cutie with her 2 Big Kor Kors Sportie & Smartie infront of her American Carrot Birthday Cake which Ma Ma & Pa Pa promised to get her (from Walmart 2 nights ago!) here in Orlando, Florida USA……….

But cos Ma Ma & Pa Pa were too tired & sleepy (Ma Ma’s still very tired & sleepy now hahah!!) to stay up any longer last night to celebrate Cutie’s Birthday, here they’re this early dawn at 3.45am!!

Let’s hear Pa P with Cutie singing (her own!) Birthday Song (in English & Mandarin!):

 

 

Cutie’s cutting her Birthday Cake now – such a cutie American Carrot Cake (topped with a cutie Carrot!!) just like her heheh!!

Haha now that we’ve celebrated Cutie’s Birthday, Dear & I are busy packing in the last minute again before we leave for Orlando International Airport for our Flight back home to Singapore………….Well, not quite yet cos we’ve to first fly to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County International Airport in Michigan!!

Well, today’s finally our last day here in Orlando, Florida USA!! Not that we like leaving here at all cos we already miss Orlando NOW (in fact I’ve told Dear many times that I wana stay here for good cos I love this place so much!!) – but rather there’s always AN END to everything :( ((

And you know, Dear & I have actually stocked up so much food here at Quality Inn International think we’re just CRAZY ahahahahah!!

 Dear & My Leftover Food (Instand Noodles, Carrot Cake, Meat Pizza, Chinese New Year Goodies, Mickey Mouse Crisped Rice Birthday Cake, Beef Taco Salad, American Coke etc) for the Chambermaids at Quality Inn International on our Last Day in Orlando, Florida USA before Flying out of Orlando International Airport to Detroit Wayne County International Airport

There’re our brought from home Instant Cup Noodles & our Chinese New Year Pineapple Tarts, Dried Shrimp & Chili Rolls (NEVER touch these at all!!), Dear’s Mickey Mouse-head shaped Crisped Rice Birthday Cake from Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom (which we only ate its left ear!!), & a few Banana & Wild Blueberry Muffins!!

As well as last night’s unfinished Meat Pizza & Beef Taco Salad from Mcdonald’s, Dear’s SolidWorks World 2009 Conference Chocolate Cookie, Cutie’s unfinished Birthday Cake (which we all shared only a small slice!!), & our favourite American Coke!!

And not forgetting that we’ve still got our almost 3/4 Tub of Preyer’s Overloaded Brownie Mud Pie Ice Cream left in the Room’s Fridge which Dear & I totally forgot to eat last night!! Silly Us!!!

YEA yea, Dear & I are definitely crazy to have so much leftovers!! What a waste wish we’ve the chance & appetite to eat them all during those days we’re here in Orlando!!

And now, cos our travelling luggages are all filled up & so full, I thought why not leave behind for the Hotel’s chambermaids for helping to clean up our Room so neat & comfortably for Dear, our Babies & Me!!

So I quickly scribble a Note & tag it on our food :

Though only here for 10 days, Dear & I, especially, have fallen in love with this most beautiful Sunshine State as I got to explore around Orlando being alone for 4 full days without Dear while he was away in his Conference………..

To really see, feel, touch, live & experience Orlando’s sights & culture & way & style of living with its people………And I’m really thankful for this most golden precious opportunity - Thank you Orlando for allowing me to do just all that!!

Hmm……..it’s my first time trying this American brand (as recommended by my buddy!) – & it’s exactly like my favourite KETTLE Brand Potato Chips (still remember I used to often buy for Mom back home in Singapore!!) – except that I prefer the KETTLE Brand Slightly Salted flavour which is less salty than the Poore Brothers one!

Dear & I sleep throughout our Flight from Orlando International Airport – seems that my recent busy Chinese New Year activities (plus the prior house spring cleaning & weeks of preparations!!) before our Orlando Trip, plus the Trip itself, have all taken a heavy toll on Me that by now, I’m completely worn out & so exhausted ahahah!!

About 3 hours has passed now at slightly past 11am as our NW 433 Flight arrives over the sky of Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) here in lovely Winter snowy Michigan, USA :

Spirit of Detroit Michigan & Michigan The Great Lake State Souvenir Magnets :

Spirit of Detroit Michigan & Michigan The Great Lake State Souvenir Magnets from Edward H. McNamara Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County International Airport in Michigan, USA

The Spirit of Detroit is a City Monument with a Large 26 foot (7.9m) Bronze Statue, holding in its left hand a Gilt Bronze Sphere emanating Rays symbolizing God. And in its right hand it holds a Family Group symbolizing All Human Relationships.

This Statue bears an Inscription – “Now the Lord is that Spirit : & where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty”, including the Seals of the City & Wayne County, together with a Plaque bearing another Inscription  that reads “Through the Spirit of Man is manifested in the Family, the Noblest Human Relationship”. Pretty cool huh!!

As for why Michigan is called The Great Lake State - Well, Michigan has 3,177 miles of Great Lakes (a chain of Freshwater Lakes!) Shoreline, & the word Michigan means “Creat Water” derived from the Ojibwa Indian word “Mishigami” – thus the name ”Michigan The Great Lake State”!

Here’re my Detroit Skylines Souvenir Magnets – also Made in USA :

Made in USA Souvenir Magnets from Edward H. McNamara Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County International Airport in Michigan, USA

Detroit’s first Skyscraper was a 10-storey building (Hammond Building) completed in 1889, & the City went through a massic Building boom in the 1920s, 1970s & 1980s. And today, Detroit is the site of 7 Skyscrapers at least 500ft (152m) in height – ranked 3rd in the Midwestern United States (after Chicago & Minneapolis), & 17th in the whole USA!

The current Tallest building in Detroit (& the 86th Tallest building in USA!) is the 70-storey Detroit Marriott at Renaissance Center (at 727ft or 222m) along Detroit’s International Riverfront, as featured in my above Detroit Skylines Souvenir Magnets!

Now, I’m most happy that I’ve managed to get some Detroit Souvenirs, especially adding onto my World Souvenir Magnets Collection, & having this great chance to visit yet another great American State with Dear, during this short Transit here in Michigan………..
