Always a pleasure to come to this lounge. A rarity lately as I no longer live here.
I actually know the young lady checking me in – an ex-collegue from a previous position.
I head straight for the bar before I sit down and order a dirty Martini. Nice. Soon after I find a seat a waitress comes over and asks if I would like another. I go for an Espresso Martini this time. Very nice.
My partner soon arrives and we make our way to the dining area where I am surprised to note it doesn’t seem to be a Neil Perry menu anymore. Perhaps the relationship has soured?
Nonetheless there is a delicious menu on offer as well as an enticing buffet which includes some Korean delights. I go all out (including dessert) and end with an Old Fashioned.
I contemplate a shower but after internal deliberation decide I can’t be bothered. The flight is only 2.5 hours. I’ll survive.
