December 24, 2009: A Birthday dinner for Ellen

This was Ellen's birthday - and I better get it right. Fiona and Anthony proposed (back in July) that I try a new idea - a romantic dinner in the middle of a pond of lotus plants with our own chef and staff. I agreed. We ate by candle light - and it was amazing. Here is the entrance

When we finished, we walked back to our bungalow - and found that there were candles lighting the way

Then inside, our bed was decorated with a heart of orchids
