Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok and Caring Hearts for AIDS Foundation are hosting a charity afternoon tea to honour Father of the Nation, the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The event will include afternoon tea, a fashion show with a special performance by father-daughter singers: Rang Rockestra and Metal, and art auction.
Inspired by the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s hobbies and talents, Executive Pastry Chef Claus Olsen has exquisitely created a special mixture of savoury items which include a range of sandwiches, pies and other interesting choices for this special occasion. Some of the delectable dishes are the Royal Project Treasure Chest, a dessert representing the world-famous royal project in Chiang Mai Province. Dark edible soil, which is part of the dessert, refers to the richness and fertility that yield healthy crops grown in the area.
Celebrity father-son-daughter fashion show:
Khemanit ‘Pancake’ Jamikorn
Pharanyu ‘Tack’ Rojanawuthitham
Somchai ‘Tao’ Khemklad
Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kitsuwan
