I make the travel arrangments for our corporate travellers at my place of work and I negotiate corporate rates for the hotels in Brisbane each year. During the year I am invited to The Stamford Plaza, Hilton Hotel, Sofitel etc during the year for Breakfast, Lunch, High Tea etc. Today I was lucky enough to have lunch at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane with a beautiful lady named Angela. This is the Stamford Plaza foyer, the photo is taken from the staircase leading up to the Grand ballroom.  The Stamford Plaza (formerly Heritage Hotel) is one of the most spectacular hotels in Brisbane which is situated on the river near the Botanical Gardens. They were very unlucky to have been flooded badly in the Queensland January 2011 floods and they were closed from January until late April 2011.

I had the most incredible lunch, there is so much variety in the buffet and it is very hard to decide what to have so I finally decided on a little bit of Green Chicken Curry, twice baked Pork, salmon, baby chat potatoes, cauli flower and broccoli. I wish I had taken a photo before devouring it however I did take a photo of my cup of "skinny" flat white (half full) and my sweets, everything was so delicious.

I cherish these days as when I am retired there is no way I would be able to afford to go to these places so I make the most of it. So when I am sitting in my craft room doing things that make me happy I will still have the memories of the days when I dressed up wearing my finery having beautiful lunches at the Hilton and Stamford Plaza, the most awseome high teas at the Stamford Plaza and the best buffet breakfast ever at the Sofitel.
