My favorite hotel is in the news again and for those of my friends who have already booked over Christmas and New Years, it is timely. There are several of my personal adventures at The Oriental dating back a number of years here in my Travels…for good reasons. This one happens to be a press release, but I might as well have written it myself. By the way, I exchanged rings with my love at the top of the Paladian staircase below:
