Fine Dining At Canoe House, Mauna Lani, Kona

ONCE A LIFETIME OR SHOULD I SAY YOLO? 

Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!  LOL...And that was what we did. 

On this special evening, my son booked a reservation at Canoe House in Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts for dinner.  I did not know what to expect except that he told me that it was a fine dining open air restaurant overlooking the sea.  

When we reached, I felt that I was home in Penang, very similar except for the beautiful sunset and cooling wind... and of course the food is different too.  The three of us ordered a 5 course set, not knowing what to expect except the best... LOL.... It cost $95 per pax and I think it is really worth trying.  As I mentioned earlier... YOLO... You Only Live Once!  LOL..... 

When we entered the resort, we felt that we were being "stared upon"...
Yes, no kids, no babies in sight... nor Asians too!
Some were looking at our baby in the pram, cooing to him.... 
Oh I guess this hotel is not for kids...
I asked my son... "did we come to the right place?"
We had our dinner here....
here.... 
Looks like our Malaysian beaches right?
the sun was going to set....
lower and lower.....
So beautiful....
Catching closer glimpse of the sunset....
The love birds went to capture these before the food arrives....
And soon it was nearly gone...
First course....
I finished to the last drop or piece.... LOL...
Second course.... 
Third....
Fourth one...
And dessert as the 5th course..... 
And this was complimentary cos of wedding anniversary.... 
Don't forget to mention during the reservation!
LOL...
Yes, our life time experience...
or should I say, that is my once-in-a-lifetime experience.....
LOL.....

  1. "Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!" DEFINITELY!!! Especially at a time like this - even when we have the money, we really don't know what to do with it. Don't want to eat out, don't want to travel...just #staysafe #staywell #stayhome and we jolly well can't take all that money with us when we go!!!

    I save around RM500 because I stopped smoking, another RM500 as I stopped buying TOTO, around RM200 on petrol (and some more on car servicing) as I hardly go out these days...so when I shop for food and fruits, supplies for the house, I will just buy, never mind how expensive! I can afford it!!!

    What a lovely place! What lovely views!!! Happy Wedding Anniversary...to your son and his missus, I suppose...not you! LOL!!!
