The year 2016 was a very important year for us. It was the year of travel, love and marriage. We celebrated our Pearl Wedding Anniversary (30 years). We went to the Philippines, Singapore and Cambodia in February to celebrate it. I flew to the Philippines first and took my mother and aunt to Hong Kong. Then after 10 days, Him Indoors followed. We went to the beautiful island of Coron in Palawan, then stayed some days in Manila to see friends and relatives. We flew to Singapore and visited Him Indoors’ brother and family, then off to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat. That was our 30 years wedding anniversary celebration.
In May, HRH the son and beautiful K got married in the UK. The son was 24 and K – 23. It was a lovely wedding in Towcester and families from Canada, Ireland, India and Philippines came, as well as friends from the UK and Germany. There were 200 guests. Then, in August, their Indian wedding/reception in the south of India, Cochin. K’s family were there, as well as us, and Him Indoors’ brothers and their families.

Then we went on a tour around the south of India, from Cochin to Thekaddy. We had a boat trip, tea-plantation visit, tiger reserve tour, spice tour, etc. It was an experience of a lifetime.
