Apologies for today’s tardiness. The reason for this is I was quite busy luxuriating at the Mariott, where Corrie (Soup Master) and I had a holiday to celebrate her birthday. The Mariott is approximately 9kms from my house, it’s in the fancy end of town and is where the ASEAN delegates stay. It’s classy, and having both been in China for quite a while, Corrie and I really appreciated some proper customer services and creature comforts. The picture shows us decked out in our bath robes, on our way down to the spa and sauna!
We just had to put it out of our minds that our evening’s room expense was about half the average monthly wage of a Nanninger. It was nicer for us to focus on the fact that we were in the lap of luxury for only about AU$100! Does that even get you a room in Motel 69 at home?
