What a shock at breakfast this morning!!!
As you approach breakfast you see the soup cart set up then the breads, croissants rolls, sugar-topped rolls, cream scrolls and pastries. Occasionally, if there is a conference, the cream cakes are in plain view. As you round the corner you see the rice and Asian foods, the two cereals and coffee and juice. Walk in further is the large table with all the fruit and salads opposite more Asian foods - or if it is quiet then the bacon and sausages are here. Next are the baimarees with the eggs - sunny side up or sunny side down next to 3 minute or 5 minute boiled eggs and the pancakes. On those busier mornings the bacon ham pork and chicken sausages are up a few steps with the mixed vegetables in butter and fried potatoes. By now we can get out food with eyes closed. Well... until this morning. No conferences today so this morning the food choices were almost non existent and the tables empty. The cereal coffee and juices (except mums tomato juice) were in the same spot as was the fruit (still no bananas) and salads. The bread
croissants and plain rolls along with the butter and jam were the only things on the bench that is normally full to the brim with the hot foods. The only sweet bakery items were the small muffins. Eggs ham bacon and sausages could all be ordered fresh but that was it.
Hopefully for my last breakfast tomorrow it will be back to normal - the banner says a conference is starting today for four days. By lunchtime there was still no sign of conference people. I'm getting worried!!!!
We all headed off to Mr Long so mum and I could organise the taxi to the airport tomorrow and the boys could hire his mopeds. I headed up a few shops to buy a few greeting cards, waved the boys off then mum and I headed back to the hotel to sit in the foyer to relax and watch the passing parade.
After a swim in the little pool I headed down to the bakery for a bite to eat while mum had something in the hotel room.
Mum and I had a lovely long swim in the big pool and Peter and Rick finally joined us once they were back from their ride.
- we saw the glasses set up on the bar. That means conference!!! Bad news - there were only 30 glasses!!!! Not the hundred I was hoping for!!
My last Thai meal was at Arees although we did a combination dinner. We had Thai fried baby corn with shrimp and Thai sautéed chicken and cashew nut as well as Indian mutton korma and Indian dum Aalu with nan and rice. The boys stopped for a magnum while mum and I enjoyed a slow stroll back to the hotel. I packed a few more things but leave most for morning.
(It was not until the day of mums funeral that I found out Peter had fallen off his moped going around a corner and broken his wrist!!!! Mum never knew...)
