What My Father Taught Me

"My father always reminded me that when one gets married, he must place his wife as the most important person in his entire life because she will be living with you for the rest of your life. She will share all your joys, happiness and sorrows, so you must give her the utmost respect, love and support in order for her to take good care of you.... He added on that I must stand beside my wife always and support her at home and outside, no matter under what situation even if she is wrong in any conflict outside and blah blah blah......."

This has been ringing inside my head for many years! I have never quarreled with my wife and I believe my father's advice works! Every year, I will try to spend my wife's birthday celebration overseas and it has brought us to Beijing, Bali, Phuket, Angkor Wat - Cambodia, Bangkok and blah blah blah....

This year, I knew that I could not go anywhere as the timing was not right. The air fares were sky high due to the Hari Raya Holidays. She also has got exams and we are also busy moving away from the mushroom farm. While I was thinking so hard of a way to plan for a memorable weekend, I received a call from a leading hotel to join their "Lifestyle" membership package at a small sum where I could enjoy their free rooms, free buffets, facilities and blah blah blah.....



I always enjoyed pampering my wife on her birthday with a 2-3 day celebration like a fairytale Princess. We started off with a dinner at Fong Lye restaurant at Gardens, Mid Valley and followed by a Thai food lunch the next day.



We checked into the 5 Star hotel in the afternoon and walked around the sprawling greens and golf course.


 They have a nice free form swimming pool with a bar-island in the middle! I swam many laps to burn off my fats!


Awww! So sweet! The hotel's chef prepared a complimentary Cheese Cake with fresh fruits topping as the birthday cake.



 They have a grand entrance with a bridge to their Spa.




This hotel is so snobbish that they have different restaurants for different type of guests. This one is a super high end wing with private club, cafe and restaurant overlooking a beautiful cascading waterfalls and golf course. Lovely!




That night we went to town and watched the "Expandables 2" where all the famous grandfathers were acting. We sat on the privileged seats and I relaxed like a grandfather on the beanie seats, munching the pop corns!




The next day we had breakfast and my wife said it was the best spread she had ever eaten in her life. We had a simple but happy & relaxing weekend.

  6. I thought Letchumi's best spread she has ever eaten is the starfish on the ocean floor??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Letchumi was on the phone, not interested at the food on the table because she was already full after consuming the big starfish earlier. Kekeke... or perhaps the sashimi + cream spread on the clean, fair sushi table?

      Delete
    2. Women like to talk on the phone, even in their sleep! Wakakakaka....
      The breakfast spread was very different from other hotels. The chefs will specially blend fruit juices according to your pick and mix desires! Other than that their yoghurt bar was fantastic cos it caters for Japanese and Mat Sallehs.

Anyway, we just lived opposite the place and its a good place for occasional good meal when we felt like it and the 50% discount does help a lot. This hotel is special to us because we got married there...hahahaha....
