One of the relatively unknown parts of our job is promotional representation. As we happen to be the face of the airline, we get called upon to go somewhere, and stand in photos, in uniform, representing the airline. I'd done a few events in Dubai, but this month I travelled to London for my first overseas gig. A group consisting of 2 Aussies and 2 Kiwis went, to represent the company at TOAST, which is the Australian Food and Wine Festival held in the UK. This year it was held in the gorgeous Fulham Palace, and having worked at these type of events before moving to Dubai, knew it was just an excuse for everyone to get drunk, and by day one it was certainly messy. My shoes were well and truly covered in mud, my stockings were splattered as well, and I wasn't even drinking! The grooming dept would have been less than impressed.

It was a very fun weekend, the only downside of which was that there was hardly any non-alcoholic beverages there, which made it hard to keep hydrated. The food however was amazing. Huge crowds on both days which was good to see.

Fulham Palace. It looks better in real life than it does in the picture.

The best part was that on the Australia day, Kath and Kim rocked up, and challenged two old Neighbours boys to a sandwich-making contest. (Blair McDonagh and Johnathon Dutton for those who can remember that long ago) I do have a photo with K&K, but I'm in uniform, so I'm not going to post it :-(

When all the drunks public had left, one of the prizes that hadn't been claimed was up for grabs by the crew, and after much deliberation we all decided that it should be decided by a Welly-throwing contest. The girls at the Mango Tree stall won, who gave me decent neck massages all weekend long. Turns out that they were all Thai, and when they found out I was half Thai, made the other crew jealous by giving me free ones now and then, and long ones. It was a cool weekend.
