After seeing this outfit on Garance Dore's site, I really wish I had a billowy bright top and khaki shorts!!!
Anyway this post will cover what I've been doing this slacky weekend. Some pictures too but most of them will be next post so I don't have to do the arduous task of dragging all of them around. As it is 5 is a Herculean job.
We went to Shangri-La on Friday evening, because Dad and Mum attended this Oktoberfest celebration the German embassy was hosting in the ballroom. After half an hour of wrestling with the TV I gave up, brought out the ol' portable player and watched Mansfield Park till about 10 or so, all the while chewing on fried rice and having my taste buds scorched out with pineapples (according to Mum- "it's their defense mechanism!").
Woke up at 11.00 (or rather- was woken up
) just in time for lunch at 11.30.
Played around with the camera (and the bathroom's many mirrors!) before I'd even properly woken up... a hotel room is a very nice place to take photos because they've all these pretty elegant kooks lying around.
We ate at the buffet restaurant, Next2 (the Chao Phraya River), for lunch. Here are their toothpicks!
Anyway, we were accompanied by Uncle Dennis, Auntie Jess, Sher and this adorable French family sitting next to us but not necessarily with us. They had this really cute daughter (two, but the younger one was the 'un with the antics) who brought her little doll and asked to borrow the baby chair so she could put the doll in it. The waiter tried to buckle her in but the doll would- not- be- buckled! Eet was too small. Then a waitress came along to tuck her in with a napkin, and asked, "Sleeping?" with some translation help from the mother the little girl said happily, "Yes!" but when the doll had woken up, she promptly put her in a stroller and ran her about.
I suppose dolls falling over and being eaten by catfish are not a problem in zee French world... just kidding.
After we came home (we swam first) we went to visit JT. We bathed him and I gave him a very beautiful mohawk, which you might not be able to see properly in the picture...
More pictures coming up.
