Xenia, just before Christmas, had a friend of hers over from Germany for a visit and Ascan is a very good bartender so Xenia arranged for him to give a workshop to the students at Smile on making Cocktails. So obviously we agreed (under some pressure) to be the tasters....
Basti with Seng trying out one of the specials.
Sienghour trying out his new found cocktail skills and making me a Long Island Ice Tea of course.
Heng, one of the health staff trying one of the cocktails..not sure if he likes it!!
I have never seen such a popular workshop as this one!
Panha - BSDA Program Manager and Chhany - BSDA Finance Manager testing a cocktail
Our Finance Manager Chhany relaxing! You wouldn't think that he use to be a Monk...
Christmas was spent in Phnom Penh with Ali at Circa51.
Ali decorating the Terrace Suite that we had over the Christmas weekend - we just relaxed and chilled out by the pool - just what was needed. Hotel only had a few people staying and the owners were lovely - supplying us with a free bottle of bubbly on arrival and then invited us to a lovely BBQ on Christmas day.
Our stash of little presents - we gave each a $10 limit to buy as many stupid things as possible and of course Queenie came away with us.
Me on Christmas morning with some of my pressies..
Honest I hadn't had a drink - only coffee by this stage but I look like I have had a skinful - just the excitement of Christmas....
The hotel and the lovely pool - our suite was up the stairs and overlooked the pool with our own private terrace as well..
I hope that you all have a fantastic festive season and a great New Year. I wish that 2012 is filled full of happiness and laughter for all of you.
I hope that 2012 will bring many more blog entries to keep you entertained!
