The Peninsula, New York is not a hotel I usually think about but having had such an incredible time with Carrie at the Hong Kong Peninsula I decided I must take my special Hong Kong teddy bear Peter there and I was glad that I did.
It had always been my dream to visit the Hong Kong Peninsula, with its ‘Peninsula green’ Rolls-Royces, since I saw the Bond movie ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. On my previous two trips to Hong Kong my friends and colleagues had thwarted this, saying this Kowloon hotel was too far from Central. Four Seasons staff had told me The Peninsula was the place to have afternoon tea in Hong Kong but not a good place to stay.
Si Frew has lived in the UK, Bermuda, Qatar, Cyprus & the Cayman Islands. During this time he met Whoopi Goldberg (in Claridge's), Mike Tyson (in the Concorde Lounge at JFK) , Gordon Ramsay (in the Doha Four Seasons), Chris Eubanks (in The Dorchester), Cherie Blair (in Bermuda & again in the Doha Four Seasons) etc. There are funny stories attached to all these interactions, feel free to ask Si about them when you meet him.
