ALOHA…!!!

It is very unusual that I would post anything exclusively about me on the TWP Blog Page yet this one is an exception.

Last Thursday, July 28th 2016 me and Che were celebrating our 9th Year Wedding Anniversary.  It was such a blessing to be married to the love of my life and we are both looking forward for more years together as our family continues to grow.

Day 4 “Love Your Spouse Challenge” Me and Che during our Early Dating Days loved going to the Melting Pot. We loved eating foods that accompanied plenty of Red Wine. We planned going to this particularly far location from west covina because we wanted to. We didn’t want this evening to end because it was one of our sweetest beginnings as a couple… “Ma’ane’i No Ke Aloha ~ For love is here and now…”

The photo above was one of our early days of dating back in 2006.  Me and Che were in Malibu California checking out Locations for shoots and thereafter decided to look for a place to have a Dinner.  We found the Melting Pot located in Thousand Oaks, California pictured Below.

Without the access of YELP or other reviews website on our phones back in 2006, little did we know this beautiful restaurant would lead to one of our most Romantic Dinners.  The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant where we can enjoy several fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads, and amazing desserts.  Oh my the Desserts are to Die For…!!!

Below is a few photos of the Restaurant’s Menu.

On my Facebook last July 12, we participated on posting a “Love My Spouse Challenge”.   Kristie and the Staff of the Melting Pot found my Post.  They all loved our Story from our first visit at the restaurant.  Kristie messaged us on Facebook and invited us to Spend our Wedding Anniversary with them.  Me and Che couldn’t believe the invitation to dine and enjoy a night generously offered to us.  All we know is that this night was another of those that we will always remember.

Below, Kristie and the staff surprised us with a Beautiful Writing on the Board.  It was based on our Facebook Post and they TRULY captivated us with their ALOHA SPIRIT.  Just look at how Special they made this for us.  We were at awe on such a wonderful and nice presentation.  We are TRULY Blessed.  It is not all the time that we were just given something to us.  This was so REAL and we just feel so AMAZED.

Our Cheese Fondue and Essentials is the Perfect way to start enjoying your Romantic Dinner.  Me and Che were enjoying feeding each other with the fondue sticks.  We ordered the Classic Alpine (rich, sweet-yet-earthy) and Quattro Formaggio (rustic-herbaceous). Along with the red wine, we all know that this night will be full of laughing and maybe some kissing 😀

Part of our Four Course meal is our Salad.  Below are photos of the Salads.

Now we are Cooking. You can see all our ingredients are simmered in wine at the perfect temperature. Our food cooked very quickly and we were able to eat at the right time. During this time me and Che just chatted and just cooked the night away.

Pictured with us here are Kristie and Shaq.  Not pictured but also was a part of our special night were Brittany, Kayden, Jesse and Garrett.  Thank you again so much to The Melting Pot Ohana for giving us a Wedding Anniversary Gift to remember.  Without the Marketing department finding us, we wouldn’t have had this wonderful experience.

Me and Che felt the Happiest from such Amazing People and such a Lovely Restaurant.  We can’t ask for anything more.  The Melting Pot offers the most amazing experience for romantic couples such as us.  We hope with our positive experience that all of the rest of you would dine and visit them as well.  The Melting Pot in Thousand Oaks has the Most Romantic setting with our own Private room.  We encourage all of my Aloha Couples to have Dinner dates here too.  No doubt that your Dinner here will be worth it.  Me and Che can’t wait to come back once again to share another dinner with our family and friends.

Hau`oli la Ho’omana’o – Happy Wedding Anniversary !!!
