Reminiscing Last Year's Birthday

This was our accommodation and it was called Spa Suite Residence...

 

It seems to me it was just yesterday but if I have to look back and count for the next three months, it's going to be a year since I celebrated my birthday. How time flies! I am turning another year older which I am not bothered of about the number btw (except that my Mom, siblings, relatives & friends are worried I may not get married!) :D

 

Anyway, it was a very lovely day when my friend brought the news that the reservation she made at Soneva Gili for my birthday got confirmed (it was under F & F rates). This resort is one of my dream resorts in the Maldives and it felt surreal knowing I am off at this island for 04 nights. I couldn't be happier! WOW! The plan of having a fab birthday on getting older is set to get realized.

Then finally the dates of our scheduled holiday came. I was at a loss for words! We were treated fairly - VVIP service! (but remember we didn't pay as much as the normal guests) and we even had a butler during our stay. Not only that, we were upgraded to Spa Suite Residence. We had everything in our accommodation (Sauna, Gym, Jacuzzi & etc). The resort serves the most yummy sushi ever. And on the night of my birthday, it was a themed dinner "Mediterranean Night" (what a coincidence!?!). It was as if I made a treat for all the guests, lol!

 

What even made it more exciting is that a friend came from Dubai to join us on this island getaway. She came the day after we arrived in the island (it was supposedly my cousin but he got tied up with his work so we took advantage of bringing in another or 3rd person to share with us in our accommodation). Like her (it was her first visit here) I too was very thankful & feel privileged to have spent 05 days in Soneva Gili (I couldn't say thank you enough for this resort ..My best birthday celebration ever!).

 

And with this.... made me wonder where & how to celebrate my upcoming birthday this time?! Hmmmmm.....I just wish it will be as fab as before. This I pray to God, Amen. =)
