So after our one week stay in KL, it was off to Singapore to see my 3 month old nephew for a couple days. And then it was off to Bangkok and Koh Samui for a week. But when we got to Singapore, Sooz’s bag never turned up. Amongst other things, she had the dress she was planning to wear to the wedding in Thailand, her shoes, makeup and some costume jewellery.

Included in our plans was to go and see GOLDIE, as he was playing that night in Singapore. But after spending a full day on the phone to the Airport with little luck of tracing it, we were in no mood to go out and party.

Succumbing to the fact that we might never see her bag again, we did some emergency shopping the next day for some essentials and put everything to rest. To our delight, the bag turned up the next day when we rocked up to the airport to catch our flight to Bangkok. AND…we bumped into GOLDIE! Not only did we manage to snag a pic with him, he ended up catching the same flight with us to Bangkok!

After setting off all the metal detectors at the departure lounge, he was cool enough to sit down with us and have a chat. He was on his way to pick up his wife from hospital in Bangkok where he left her before going to his gig in Singapore because she has a medical condition and the long flight from the UK to Asia took its toll and gave her a collapsed lung. He also noted that she was 5 months pregnant! Damn. And to add insult to injury, he was hit with food poisoning in the last 24 hours and kept having to run to the toilet about 5 or 6 times in the 3 hour flight.

Apart from all that, he was a really nice guy. Looked tuff as always with his gold teeth and massive rings on every finger, but I could see the pain and stress he was going through. I guess shit happens no matter who you are.
