    Hello

    Dear All

    Its a pleasure to 'meet' you all.
    First off, apologies if this is in the wrong place - i'm a noob go figure.

    I have been in Patong now for just over 17 months now (visited many times before). I took over as the Managing Co-owner at the Summer Breeze Hotel in October of '16.
    I am a Korean/British mixed bag. Have lived in several countries in Asia throughout my life but the vast majority has been Hong Kong (12 years) and Singapore (12 years).

    I am happy to offer whatever help/advice I can (or point you to where you can find some). My background since leaving Uni has been hotels, specifically the front of house having worked housekeeping, reception but my love was at the Concierge which gave me the opportunity to really explore and quite often eat my away around HK and SG.

    Again, pleasure to be on the forum and all the best,

    Cheers
    Mark The Rake

    I was just in Hong Kong a couple months ago

    Ate at Mercato by Jean Georges

    This may be the best plate I have ever eaten in my life

    By the way, the food from Summer Breeze looks amazing on Facebook

    Welcome to the forum Mark.
    You have a lot to live up to after Bill running the SBH.
    Not been back to Phuket in a while but the SBH is always the first place I'll stay.

    Welcome to the board, Mark. It has been a bit slow here, so new blood is welcome. Always good to hear from people with a different point of view. The more you post the more threads will be open to you.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

    Welcome to the Board Mark!!

    Maybe at last the kind of on the ground fresh input we so badly need in here - so look forward to seeing more in due course.

    Big Bill's shoes a lot to fill and SBH is a fantastic hotel with great staff - wish you all the best in continuing Bill's success there.

    Cheers
