This is half a page from the 1998 Christmas programme for the Rasa Sayang Resort in Penang. They brought us up for a poolside show on Christmas Eve, stayed overnight and the following night, and spent Christmas Day with our partners lazing by the pool. Main memories are of a manic eyed F&B manager, me having a run in with the sound technician who didn't seem to know how to operate a mixing desk but claimed he did, and the fact that ten minutes before we were due to start the show a massive thunderstorm descended. We ended up doing the rain lashed show in the coffee house with streams of rainwater flowing all over the place.  I think we were all chuffed at the fact that we got a holiday, all expenses paid, got to sing and got paid for that as well!! Life felt very fair...
