Thai Airways goes Above and Beyond Service
Wow and wow and wow.
Thai airways really went above and beyond in making me comfortable...The Crowne Plaza Hotel was nothing less than decedent, queenly even!!! I took the hottest bubbiliest bath ever, while watching Family Guy on TV, then I went down for dinner, and everything cost SO much money, the appetizers alone were over 27$. There wasn't really a budget option...and since I wasn't paying, i had an amazing surloin steak, something I've been craving for sometime now, it was cooked to perfection, seasoned with thyme and a dijon mustard sauce, along with asparagus and sweet potatoe. When the steak arrived I had a glass of NZ Cabernet. Then I had a Orange Compote dessart topped with semi sweet chocolate flakes. mmmm!! Walking up to my room I was full as a tick, and weary and I fell into the cloudlike bed and melted into the clean warm sheets like butter on a volcano. I flipped back and forht between Fantastic Four the movie, and It's always Sunny in Philidelphia, one of my favorite TV shows from home.
This is the view from my hotel when the sun went down:
This mornings Enjoyment at THe Crowne Plaza:
This morning the front desk called at exactly 7:45, as i asked them too, I switched on CNN, took my morning paper from the hallway, and drank coffee and got caught up on local an international news. A NEW PRESIDENT IN 5 DAYS!!!! WOOOOOOOW!!!!
THen i went downstairs from breakfast, I had berry yogert with fresh fruit including pineapple, rubharb, melon, and apples, then I had a bran english muffin with butter and honey, then I had another bran english muffin but with NZ cheese, something bree-like and something blue-like. I then ate half a grapefruit. ANd a cup of coffee.
Then I marinated in my room for an hour, took another hot wonderful shower, watching music videos and relishing the bed before checking out at 10.
'I'm back at Central City Backpackers doing the internet thing. I sent an email yesterday to the hostle in bangkok. They emailed back...remailed, shall we say. They said no problem on pushing the room back a night. THey'd not charge me any extra or penilize me. They welcomed me in whenever I arrived. The email was SO nice, I'll attch it
