Due to the personal intervention of Buddha and personal intercession by Jesus Christ, our MAS MF 366 flight from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei on 23 March did not disappear and we arrived safely while enjoying the superb inflight service for which Malaysia Airlines is justly famous.
The Sherwood hotel, one of the best in Taipei, sent a big van to pick us with our 6 suitcases and 5 Louis Vuitton handcarry trolley bags!
The General Manager of The Sherwood Hotel, Achim Von Hake, a member of German aristocracy from Hamburg, was waiting for us in the driveway and welcomed us warmly. The only problem we had was the weather---it was too warm! Almost every day we checked the weather and it was between 13 and 15 degree Celcius! So I packed 2 fur coats and so did Princess Dr Becky! We almost fainted when the pilot announced brightly "You will be happy to know the ground temperature is 24 degree Celcius"!
Still, what cannot be cured must be endured so we are making the best of it!
Achim Von Hake (such a highclass, noble name!) took us to Princess Dr Becky Leogardo's 2 bed-room suite which has a living room and dining room plus 3 toilets. Mine is right nextdoor.
Everyone of us brought gifts for our dear friend Achim Von Hake.
Princess Dr Becky Leogardo gave him a Louis Vuitton wallet plus Hermes tie. I gave him Swarovski cuff links and health pills. Even Daniel and sister Gloria gave Achim presents!
"I feel like Christmas is here!" exclaimed the General Manager of The Sherwood, one of Taipei's best hotels. "I have never received so many presents from 4 people at one go!"
