The 7th of October we at The Backstage celebrated two birthdays, a weddinganniversary and an upcomming wedding, which took place here on Phuket on the 10th.
The birthdayboys were Jeroen, from Delft and here to attend the wedding on the 10th, and yours truly, the so called owner of The Backstage, Rob.
The weddinganniversary celebrated was that of Rob (again) & Kik, who celebrated their 2d (Dutch) weddinganniversary.
The upcomming wedding was that of Ton & Bow on the 10th. Ton is a Dutch friend of Rob from his hometown Delft in Holland and he got married to Bow, a friend of Kik from his home province in North East Thailand.
With this party we not only wanted to celebrate the birthdays but also kick off on a most pleasing couple of weddingdays for Ton & Bow culminating in a beautifull weddingday here on Phuket at The Andara Villa resort and partly organised by yours truly ;-)
Right: An animated atmosphere developed in anticipation of a modest cabaretshow put on by our friends from May Way Cabaretgroup.
For the first time Backstage tried to create a complete cabaretshow, but because of the space needed, most of it was performed outsite in front of The Backstage, on the street with the little, individual numbers on our own Bachstage-stage!
Below: The cabaretshow started. The May Way Cabaretgrooup put on a most intimate and pleasing show for the occasion of our birthday and for that we were most gratefull!
Ofcourse we also did the traditional birthdaycake ceremony for Jeroen, who celebrated his birthday here with us at The Backstage together with some of his friends from Holland and his girlfriend Edyta.
Left: From left to right Jeroen, Edyta, Rob and Kik
The Birthdaycake presentation finally underway. With all present singing their hearts out in honor of Jeroens Birthday. Rob gratetfuly took the opportunity to play Master of Ceremony so he cleverly escaped the ceremony himself with all atention focussed on Jeroen... as it should be ;-)
Left: Jeroen receiving his birthdaycake from Gong, and on the far left you see a pretty hot Rob ;-)

Wear PURPLE on Wensday the 20th of October! + ...anouncement of a report on the Birthdays & Weddings Party of the 7th ;-)
Wensday the 20th of October The Backstage is going to support the Facebook initiative to wear something PURPLE on this day in protest of the gay bashing on internet and elsewhere resulting in suicides/deaths of often young people who wrestly with their sexual orientation.
If you happen to be in or around Patong Phuket, feel free to drop in at The Backstage and when you wear something purple you receive a free houdecocktail !
Report of Birthday & Wedding Party
Due to extreem rainfall, luckily before and after the events of the 7th and the wedding we helped organise on the 10th, we have not yet been able to make a report for this weblog, but we hope to be able to do so in the next couple of days.. this is just to let you know ;-)
