Here’s a shout-out to John, a pianist from Concorde Hotel Singapore (formerly Le Meridien). I met him very briefly last month, but enough to know he carries his sake well and makes shoulder pads look very debonair.
John keeps a little bag of wooden pegs in his jacket pocket and gives them to any lady he happens to talk to. He decorates the pegs according to the time of the year. When I met him in February, quite naturally, I received one with a red heart.
