Natalie Te Paa, a blind singer-songwriter, spent her birthday in London with her friend Claire Sara. The two agreed to go out to eat at a restaurant named Luciano. What transpired after they finished their lunch startled both of them. Natalie was given a plate with the words «Happy Birthday» inscribed in Braille using chocolate by the restaurant employees!

«There’s no way! «They didn’t!» Natalie exclaimed as she felt the raised chocolate spots with her palms. «Oh my goodness! Are you serious? That is completely ridiculous. Thank you a lot.»

Previously, when Natalie celebrated her birthday in a restaurant, the waiters sang to her, as they do for other birthday guests. But this was the first time a restaurant had made such a great effort to accommodate her disabilities. The employees went out of their way to celebrate Natalie’s birthday, from researching how to write the message in Braille to making sure the chocolate was cold enough not to melt when Natalie touched it.
