warm welcome and a flower wreath.
French National Day, called Bastille Day,
commemorates the storming of Paris’ Bastille prison by angry crowds in 1789,
sparking off the French Revolution that rid France of its monarchy - but last
week when the Amari Rincome Hotel celebrated the occasion, it was their
lunch buffet that was stormed. French items dominated and the decoration was
fitting. But, contrary to the revolution, there were no angry crowds – in fact
the French residents that came were pleasantly surprised. Samples of many French
items, as well as Asian items, plus the La Gritta ambience and the friendliness
of junior and senior staff seem to be a sure recipe for success. From left –
Anan Hochindarat, executive assistant manager, Adrian W. O’Herlihy, and 3 of
the Amari kitchen team.

Kovit Boonma, owner of Hair Pro Saloon
on Huay Kaew Street recently received another diploma. He is not only a perfect
hair color and cutting specialist, he even took part in a management course at
the Sidney Academy in Australia for salon management. From left: Mrs Mary, the
technical trainings manager of Australia, Kovit receiving his diploma from Mr.
Paul Wasse, the Salon Management Australian national manager and on the very
right, Phisit, the general manager of Schwarzkopf Thailand. Needless to say that

Schwarzkopf materials in his new salon.
