This blog is still alive, but barely. When was my last update? July 31, 2008. Ok, that’s some serious neglection. But here I am!
A lot has happened since my last update. The biggest news is my marriage to Saai.
Saai and I got married on October 11, 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand. The wedding was held in a church in the Silom area of Bangkok, and the reception at a nearby restaurant. The wedding and reception both were great. I was thankful to have my family and best man, Chris, make the long trip from the U.S. I know Saai will be able to meet many more of my family & friends when we visit America (April 24 - May 7, 2009)
How about the honeymoon? Where did we go? Well, we spent our first night at the Shangri-La Hotel
in Bangkok (Krungthep wing). The Shangri-La is an upscale hotel on the Chao Praya River. We loved it. The room was modern but with Thai touches throughout. The service was the best we’d ever experienced. They threw in many extras too. Pricey, yes (9,500 baht; $285). Worth it…absolutely!
The next afternoon, we flew to the Thai island of
Dave & Saai
Just getting started - the beginning of the wedding ceremony.
Phuket. We spent 5 nights at Mom Tri's Villa Royale
on Kata Noi beach. October is the end of the low season so we were able to get a good deal before the crowds and rates increased. We loved our time there, so much so that we’re going back to Phuket for our 1 year anniversary. There’s nothing like planning ahead!
Enjoy the pictures of our wedding, reception, and honeymoon!
