Spring is about to spring, letting mountain-high snow slide gently and unnoticed out of sight.

Come right-in for a little warmth to avoid a too long walk in minus zero temperatures.

We, Hounourable Guests and Staff members may as well get ready for the beach.

This is more than checking the body with a few tall mirrors on rococo legs.


Hey Wim is this how the girls in your bikini shows made preparations?


Yes, they did. The bikini show girls are not any bikini show girl.


Do explain yourself, boss. When you say 'any'  than that means in not the same class.


I would say that the preparation is similar but based on a different social background.

The shows at Cafe WIM were carried by girls who had attended maintain classes, the

daughters of ambassadors or embassy secretaries, well to do families or all of the above.


In what way can just the body-shape make that distinction? 


There is glow of the skin, a finesse in the walk, the minute application of the make-up,

and absolute confidence in the fixed eye movement that spells immunity to any distraction

to tell one and all that the showing of the body is merely a luxurious bonus for the beholder

but that the display of haute couture beachwear is the product they are pleased to advertise.


Lucky chess players.

Yes, there were no buyers from Fashion Houses lining the ailes. This was a play thing in 

response to an Invitation from the NCC to be part of Winterlude.  We thought about projects.

Just when the snow is mountain high and a 35 C below zero temp., howls through the street,

a bikini show was the answer.  A reminder that Summer however remote is possible.


Much appreciated, Wim. Just how do you produce such a show?


The Staff Members had good figures  They had a very goobackground. They were asked first.

They were immediately enthusiastic pleased to be asked. There were lines open to the

Embassies and University faculties. 


The girls were enthusiastic, you say. What did you say to them to be ready to do it?


Not much. There is such a thing as pride. They were very very pleased with a chance to show 

their achievement in hard discipline: their work-outs, their food-choice and intake-limit.

After all the body is a walking cosmos of inter-relation and the envelope of that  build-up

is worth sharing, especially after using all the know-how to be a deserving attention getter.

The girls had their 'body-pride' and pleased to show the superb designer's work (Iris'Couture.)


Sure was a nice happening. You were really very lucky to have a wife who could help to make it happen.

Iris worked for her aunt who was famous in The Hague. Who had three 'Prima Vera' shops in The Hague. Her aunt was an Haute Couture designer. Iris was an ardent, successful student.


Great to hear the whole story, Wim. Now we are almost through Winter, you gave a point in

history when people were pleased with Winterlude and your Summer shows. Happiness.

Happiness to you all. Expose lower arms and thighs between noon and 3 o'clock: Vitamin 'D.'

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
