Great weather on Phuket Island

Posted on: July 31st, 2012 by steve No Comments

We couldn’t ask for better weather on Phuket at the moment. In the last 3 weeks we have had only 3 bursts of rain ! Not bad for ‘rainy season’. The day shift staff have all headed to the local beach to watch the sunset.

HOW TO BE A GOOD HOTELIER

Posted on: July 22nd, 2012 by steve 14 Comments

Something I read recently:

He must be a diplomat, a democrat, an autocrat, an acrobat, and a doormat.

He must have the facility to entertain Prime Ministers, Princes of industry, pickpockets, gamblers, bookmakers, pirates, philanthropists, popsies and prudes.

He must be on both sides of the political fence, and be able to jump that fence.

He should be, or have been, a footballer, golfer, bowler, tennis player, cricketer, darts player, sailor, pigeon fancier, motor racer and linguist, as well as have a good knowledge of any other sport involving dice, cards, horse racing and billiards.

This is the most useful, as he has sometimes to settle arguments and squabbles. He must therefore, be a qualified boxer, wrestler, weight lifter, sprinter and peacemaker.

He must always look immaculate, when drinking with the ladies and gentlemen, mentioned in the second paragraph, as well as bankers, swankers, theatricals, commercial travelers and company representatives – even though he has just made peace between any of the two, four, six or more of the aforementioned patrons.

To be successful, an hotelier must keep the bar full, the house full, the store rooms full, the wine cellar full, the customers full and not get full himself.

He must have staff who are clean, honest, quick workers, quick thinkers, non drinkers, mathematicians, and at all times be on the boss’s side, the customer’s side, and stay on the outside of the bar.

To sum up; The hotelier must be outside, in side, offside, glorified, sanctified, crucified, stupefied, cross-eyed – and if he is not the strong, silent type, there is always suicide.
