My friend Natascha Slasten invited me to champagne afternoon tea at Knightsbridge Green Hotel. It’s been ages since we met so I was looking forward to this. The cakes, cookies and sandwiches were great (although some of the sandwiches were a bit dry!).
The lounge was unexpectedly small. Not that we cared. We were too busy catching up. Natascha was telling me about the last guy she dated, and I was filling her in on what I had got upto with my ex girlfriend and a rather randy professor (not at the same time!) during the weekend.
The second glass of champagne we had was as flat as a size-zero chest! No bubbles, no oomph! Lol 🙂 We sent it back and the waitress came back with exactly the same. I could tell that Natascha was annoyed. But she stayed calm. The hotel had charged her £10 extra for changing the date for our date. And the lounge was hardly full.
When I went to use the bathroom, I realised that the Knightsbridge Green Hotel, for its fancy name and so called “lounge,” looked like a B & B in an old building with a “done up” reception area. Nothing wrong with that. But if you’re going to be pretentious, then at least do it well!
On a lighter note, here’s a sexy picture of Natascha Slasten. She’s an actress and a voice over artist and has done films, TV and theatre.
She also does voice overs for video games and commercials. Fingers crossed, she’ll be cast in a British-Indian film I’ve been asked to head the styling department for! Watch this space. We are yet to sign on the dotted line!
