Michael picked me up at he airport in his company driven whatever, it's good to have friends in high places. So easy for me, thank you Michael. Straight to the hotel, I changed into something cooler, came down to the bar, to find that they'd ordered a whole bottle of gin, several tonics and a lot of ice. So, we got stuck in....
Nix n Tiff arrive, we order pizza and cocktails.
Then we order tapas and another bottle of gin and cocktails.
Then we order Thai food.
All still sat at the hotel bar. Guy very, very generously picked up the whole tab. No idea how much it was, they wouldn't let me see the bill.
Thus far, I have seen absolutely nothing of Bangkok, but have eaten like a king and ginned like a queen. I'm going back to bed for a couple of hours shortly, tomorrow is another day.
Hotel is absolutely lovely. I got upgraded, have a suite with a massive bed, TVs that are larger than my big one and home, and a fab bathroom. Great views over the glittering lights of Bangkok. Can't wait to be up n at it later.
I have a feeling I'm going to put weight on......Michael has decided he wants to see me EVERY night I'm here.
I observed Remembrance. But lost my poppy somewhere. I am also quite annoyed that not one shop in Heathrow sold poppies. Not one.
