I arrive at the airport at 11.50pm, and find Evelyn & John waiting at the taxi stand. They look hot and hungry. Not angry, thank God! So they hopped into the car and we sped off... to Gurney Drive! Tucked our tummies, then it was time for me to tuck them in bed at the brand new 20 Bangkok Lane - a part of the Palanquinn boutique hotel group (http://www.palanquinn.com).
The next day, we welcomed singers Elvira Arul and Dzamira Dzafri to 15 Bangkok Lane. We played host as they were both flown into Penang specially to perform as opening acts for Laura Fygi in concert. It was a magnificient show! And I wish it could have gone on forever! The concert was stunning, tight, and her vocals were simply so fluid and smooth.
The next day, it was off to walk the heritage trail in Georgetown! And the streets will never cease to amaze me!
