The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Day 1 Report from the Hong Kong Peninsula!

The Peninsula Hotel!

Lady Alexandra and I have arrived in Hong Kong and were whisked off in style to the Peninsula in a Rolls Royce extended wheelbase Phantom! Mummy is already ensconced in her suite. She took the Peninsula Helicopter to the hotel heli-pads! That is just so "Mummy"!

The Peninsula is Hong Kong's most famous hotel, the place to stay if you are an incurable romantic and have a penchant for the history. Built in 1928, it exudes elegance, from its white-gloved doormen and one of the world's largest limousine fleets of Rolls-Royces, to its ornate lobby, reminiscent of a Parisian palace and Hong Kong's foremost spot for afternoon tea and people-watching.

After The Peninsula lost its fabled view of the harbor following construction of the unsightly Space Museum across the street, it remedied the problem in 1993 with a 32-story tower providing fantastic harbor views from guest rooms and its top-floor restaurant Felix, designed by Philippe Starck.

Mummy has gotten us each a suite with a stunning Victoria Harbor view in the tower! These spacious rooms, ours are smaller than Mummy's, but still over 1400 square feet, are so wonderfully equipped that even we were impressed! We each have a living room, dining room, two baths and a bedroom. I count 7 bathrooms between the three of us!

Technology has not been forgotten in the least! The rooms are so well outfitted even a geek would stop and take note! These amenities' include: headphones for both radio and TV; telephones and control panels on both sides of gigantic beds; a display panel showing outdoor temperature and humidity; mood lighting; and a box in the closet where attendants can place your morning newspaper or take your dirty shoes for complimentary cleaning. I haven't even started on the Butler Service and Kitchen on our floor!

My huge white marble bathroom is equipped with its own TV, hands-free phone which automatically mutes the TV or radio and digitally filters the sound of running water. (As an aside, I do so need one of these at home,) In addition there are two sinks, both with a magnifying mirror. Tada!!

For the culture-minded, The Peninsula offers classes on everything from tai chi and feng shui to cooking. For the travel-weary, the 8th floor contains The Spa, which focuses on a journey to rejuvenation with views of the harbor from its sauna. Also take note; there is a lovely poolside restaurant to grab a bite!

I absolutely love this place!

More to come next week! We're exhausted, it's midnight here!

Cate & Alexandra
