$75 For Adults, Free For Kids.

Posted on July 8, 2011


Michele took Levi and myself for a special lunch date in Melba at The Langham.

Five star prices at a five star hotel. I’d never, ever pay $75 for lunch per head but this was a once off.

We’ve both made headway financially and career-wise this year so it’s mostly an opportunity to go out on a date and throw money at an expensive restaurant (which we haven’t done in many, many years).

The family – like any young family starting up from scratch – has seen a few years of ups and downs. It has been exceedingly difficult for Michele and I as we’ve emigrated from Singapore, so having no family for support is a constant challenge.

Looking back, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Australia is a country of immigrants, and the successful ones are those who make the most of a new country with their bare hands. Michele and I want to be part of those ‘successful ones’.
