Catching up...

Cheap Charlie's Sukhumvit Soi 11. A popular meeting point and watering hole

After almost a week with Lucy in Bandon Hospital; the same in my Dubai hospital bed and ten days back at work, catching up has been the name of my game this month. This will continue, but on the hotel side in the coming couple of weeks, as we leave for our holiday in Thailand tonight. Me and the missus meet up with Lucy and Jonny at Cheap Charlie's in Bangkok tomorrow night, before taking a short break to Chiang Mai together. I'll provide a trip report next week, hopefully.

But in the meanwhile, Pee Yok our new chef at the hotel, and around whom our plans for the redesign and evening opening of Baan Bophut's new restaurant depends so much, has slipped at home and fractured her hip, inevitably delaying plans. Poor Yok. More on this when we get down to Samui next week.

In other bad news, our interior designer, whose team are currently converting the former Room 9 linen store into our first suite, received the tragic news that her father had died today. She's on her way to Europe, and while her decorators continue the work, we're unlikely to have the Ocean Suite ready for occupancy until after she returns.
