Monday Morning Humour

My esteemed colleague and fellow good chap, Lord Marks of Swiss Cottage, writes that the Raffles Hotel (where yours truly had three excellent nights some years ago) is about to have a baby brother in Dubai. Known as the Dubai Raffles, it opens it's doors to the public next month.

The big question is - will they be serving a Dubai Ding, instead of a Singapore Sling?

I'm hoping you can persuade him to invite us over on a trip to give it a bloggers' review, it's worth a try. Then we can try out those Singapore Slings. I don't think I have ever had one.

I think I'd rather a Singapore Sling than a Dubai Ding!

Ellee, you MUST have a Singapore Sling! It's the ultimate girl drink. But only order it at posh places where they'll use the real Cherry Heering and so on. It is really divine and wickedly alcoholic, but far too much trouble to make at home.

I'm more concerned with whether the Dubai Raffles will continue the laudable tradition of giving a discount to writers. I might actually get to Dubai someday, and I am notoriously impecunious.
