I hope my letter finds you in good health. I am extremely pleased to hear about your plan to visit me in Qatar in March this year. It will be great and exciting to spend some quality time with you after so many years.
I am most enthusiastic about the fact I can celebrate your birthday with you this year. I have planned the whole thing out; we will go on a cruise in the Arabian sea on a traditional boat called 'Dhow.' The cruise will be of three hour duration and will include a traditional Arabic buffet dinner with your favorite 'Shish Tawook' kebab. There is a live band on the cruise that plays song requests as well as provides the orphan of karaoke singing. I am certain that you will immensely enjoy the show on the cruise.
Please do let me know your honest opinion about my plan. In case you would like to do something else, feel free to drop me a note and I will try my best to make your birthday extra special for you.
Looking forward to seeing you soon. Please convey my regards to your parents.
