Conrad: The Hotel For Wankers …
January 29, 2007, 5:47 pm
Filed under: Comment

So Fred and I arrived in Bangkok for a meeting with the wonderful DISCOVERY Channel and whilst we were waiting for a car to pick us up from the airport, we spotted a rather fancy Conrad Hotel Car … a bloody Mercedes SLK!!!

What sort of sad schmuk would request a 2 seat sports car pick them up … especially a 2 seat sports car with the words CONRAD written all along the side of the vehicle???

2/1 it’s mainly overweight, self-important American businessmen with a high admiration for Donald Trump and a low regard for females.  Wankers in other words.

On a more positive note … one of the things I LOVE about Thailand is the food, and while last time I was here I got to remember my childhood by eating loads of jam donuts … this time I was transported back to a time where I was a little bit older, a little bit wiser and a little bit more [ahem!] sophisticated by chowing-down on these bloody amazing Passionfruit Cheesecakes …

Words fail me how good they were … and whilst I only had one [so you can’t tell me off Jill!!!] … it’s still one more than Mr-Eat-A-Lot-Freddie, which makes me very happy indeed.

They’d probably do sausage cheesecake if I asked really nicely! Oh God … I don’t want to start that all over again! Now get back on the phonecall Andy – your silence is being noticed – it’s so unlike you!!

Visit for the sights, stay for the food…

That is such an embarrasing car to arrive in at a hotel, it screams of trying too hard.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

And of a small appendage.

I’ve never stayed in a hotel that had cars to pick you up. Is that the new black?

Comment by MarcusBrown

rob slags off people in 2 seater mercs but he still stays in the best hotels in asia, often with a fucking big merc taking him to and from the airport.
to be a bit fair, this is only because clients often organise his trips and even then, he still orders burgers and chips when they are all lording it up with over priced 20 course dinners.
you can take the boy out of nottingham but….

Bastard!

Comment by Rob

Actually scrap that …

JEALOUS BASTARD!

Comment by Rob

And you’re hardly going to be roughing it in fucking Argentina are you? And don’t give me any of that ‘safety concerns’ … you’ve probably fluked the Presidential Suite.

Comment by Rob

I bet he has been scrapping burgers for hot dogs and bangers n mash recently!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

stones and sticks are thrown by pricks.

off to cause hell by dropping the words “falkland islands” into every conversation now. if im not back in a week, call in the paras.

Comment by andy@cynic

Actually I had a fucking wonderful burger last night while watching Forest get fucked over by Chelsea.

Now I feel sausage-guilt. DAMN!

Comment by Rob

Haha! Now thats a challenge Andy, see how many Falkland references you can fit in per conversation…or lines from Evita…

At least it wasnt bacon.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

nobody gives a shit about bacon anymore.

Comment by MarcusBrown

Not unless its wrapped round a sausage… pigs in blankets…genius

Comment by Rob Mortimer

If you get your legs broken because you are trying to impress people with sausage, Evita and Falkland Island references, then don’t come running to me for help. Boom Boom.

Comment by Rob

bacon is yesterday’s sausage wrapper.

Comment by MarcusBrown

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Comment by MarcusBrown

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Comment by MarcusBrown

What a mad set of comments…

Nope, im not drunk!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

sausage VOTING is now live!

Comment by MarcusBrown

I’ve just got to this and it looks like you were all drunk.
Which is good of course….

Had a BLT for lunch.

Comment by Northern Planner

yesterday meat NP, yesterday’s meat.

Comment by MarcusBrown

There is an irony of course to staying in hotels that have a 2 seater private and eponymously named numberplate Benz SLK for airport pickup. Don’t miss out next time on the Diplomat Bar at the Conrad, with the British and US embassies on wireless road you get to meet some interesting folk and the live jazz/blues is usually top notch. I’d skip on the nightclub ’87. Painfully tasteless music 😉

Comment by Charles Frith

Hi Charles … the problem is I have an inherent need to kill the people who get picked up in 2 seater limos and stay in places like The Conrad … so maybe it’s best you don’t give me ideas where they hang out! Ha
