And here come the butterflies. Stomach is full of them but I keep doing my vocal exercises. Like I was taught. My debut in front of a live audience is finally here. This is what I’ve been working towards. I nod to the manager at the side. He knows I’m ready to begin. I can hear the host beginning to hush the crowd. The curtain rises. There I stand. Exposed. The spotlight comes on. The music begins. I take a deep breath and begin to sing
“One night in Bangkok and the worlds your oyster, the bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free….’
Dance break. Sequins glistening in the lights. Crowd goes wild. Odd choice of song but still a crowd favorite would you believe. The reason I chose that song is that I did have one night in Bangkok and it was fabulous. It’s a city that has so much going on that one night may not be enough and when you do decide to sleep, there is no better place then the Sukhothai. That hotel made my trip fabulous.
The Sukhotai is an oasis in one of the busiest cities in the world. Here, you’re located in the heart of the city and yet surrounded by tranquility. The hustle and bustle of the Asian city is pushed out the front door so you can stay calm or calm down. All rooms come with a balcony or sun terrace over looking the garden, pool or pond. Treat yourself to a spa or go have dip in the pool.
But the thing about the Sukhothai, and this has been confirmed by all who go there, is the Sunday buffet Brunch is to die for. If you are like me and not a breakfast person you got to make the effort. Every taste, genre and flavor is catered for, and I’m not a fan of taking photos of food but this was sensational. It was worth the price of the stay alone. It is a feast of the taste buds and you won’t need to eat the rest of the day.
Well I finished my number, and the crowd went wild. Standing ovation. roses at my feet. Yes once again I have won over the elderly at this nursing home with my singing abilities and thanks to my one night in Bangkok, they wont forget me easily either.
