Dr. Stanley Ho is known as the billionaire responsible for building the Macau gambling empire who at his ripe age can say that he has survived four marriages and 16 plus children, celebrated his 90th birthday last week together with his family members and a very special roulette wheel cake that was designed with the help of her daughter Florinda Ho, claims the Wall Street Journal.
Ho, who spent his birthday in a Hong Kong Sanatorium, as he has been ill since his brain surgery in 2009. He was joined by his family, who seemed surprisingly close in a press shot despite the recent squabbles over his casino fortune. Stanley who was responsible for creating the successful gambling mecca that Macau is today, owned 18% of SJM Holdings which is the company responsible for managing his empire.
Ho claimed that he was saddened by the feuding between family members and that it was his plan all along to divide the shares but somehow, it all got out of hand. One could speculate that all the back and forth with family lawsuits and arguing took its toll on Ho who has been in and out of the hospital.
Family disagreements aside, Stanley Ho’s 90th birthday was spent surrounded by his family members and it was his 22-year-old daughter Florinda that helped design a special cake for him in the shape of a roulette wheel complete with playing cards that were printed with Stanley and his wife’s faces on them.
He was too ill for a full fledged celebration but at least he didn’t spend his birthday alone.
