With our Christmas expenditure being very small (one small present each) we decided to treat ourselves to an all-inclusive five star brunch at the Sofitel hotel. The backpacker budget was on hold for one day and Christmas day was going to be a lavish one.
We picked up Miss Marsh and Miss Hookings in a tuk tuk, put the Christmas tunes on the iPod through my hubby’s new mini speaker (his gift from me) and set off on our merry way.
‘The boy’, who’s a big fan of music, danced to the sounds of Slade as we weaved our way through the busy Phnom Penh traffic.
The brunch was spectacular and ‘the boy’ was in luck. Not only did they have a live band to dance to, they also had a clown and a children’s play area.
The Tattinger champagne was on free pour, the food was delicious and ‘the boy’ was entertained to the point of exhaustion and after a few hours playing curled up on the soft seats and slept for the rest of the afternoon.
Good friends, good food, a great Christmas day.
