I just attended a wedding, and was walking to meet the water engineer who unromantically had walked ahead of me. I chanced upon this sign Cotter House, and unfeminely, I climbed up the bench of a neighbouring building to see what this luxury retreat was about. Most of the building is hiddened by trees and bush. I could not show you the downstairs.
After googling this building which is in an older but most expensive area of Auckland, I had a dream. I dreamt in my next life, I would marry some one rich and famous. I would have the most lavish wedding here, and every year, I will be pampered during my retreats to rest from my hectic shopping days. In Singapore, such a life of leisure is called Tai-tai. I am sure if I told the water engineer, he would say, dream on, no body is stopping you.
