SO MANY FRIENDS HAVE ASKED ME TO RECOMMEND A WEDDING VENUE I AM SURPRISED AS I AM HARDLY KNOWN TO BE LINKED TO WEDDINGS.

I AM NEVER FOOLISH ENOUGH TO MARRY ANYONE UNLESS THE PERSON IS A BILLIONAIRE AND EVEN SO, MUST BE DROP DEAD GORGEOUS AS I SUBSCRIBE TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF THE DIVINE KIND.

Still, I am not averse to weddings since the food and champagne are free and my presents are always worth less than the cost of the food and drinks so I am always ahead and profit from attending weddings.

I also ALWAYS outshine bride and groom with my super glam attire and fabulous jewels so that pleases me too.

Anyway, I am game for weddings as long as it is not mine, the same way I like children provided they are not mine. So if you decide to be hitched, do it in style and on an island. Outside Malaysia, I propose the new Intercontinental hotel on Koh Samui island in Thailand. Exotic enough to be different and near enough for your guests to fly over and celebrate with you.

Everything...we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is golden for him who has the vision to realize it as such. Cheap flights to Koh Samui
