quick bangkok update

Image
Yup! I was in bangkok….. and am back! It was a good trip. Given that i was pretty worried about all the news on protests and demostrations that were meant to happen over the weekend… it was rather peaceful, and I had quite a good time. Shopped till my legs almost broke… but it was still zee best! Time away from office is always good. What made my trip even better was that the hotel which I picked was fantastic and they even had us upgraded to a suite… PeRfecT! Well…. read on the web of this new hotel, Vie Hotel by mgallery…which really part of the Mercure group. It’s located along Phaya Thai road, next to the Ratchethewi BTS station (opp. Asia Hotel). It has only 150 rooms… which makes it less crowded than many of the 5 star hotels. Which also means service was tip top. View Full Album

my run

I ran 5km on wednesday! It's like wow lor.... at least for a person like me who detest running since school days. Although I was in the netball school team, I always tried to find excuses not to do the training drills of running 2.4Km.... So... leaving school was the best thing that ever happened ... coz i never needed to do another 2.4km run ever. Picked up running only recently, and the only motivation is weight loss. Yup.... not for fitness or whatsoever... but weight loss. Whatever the motivation... i think having people to run with you makes it even easier. Anyway... just surprised that at 1 year to my big 3, I could quite easily finish 5km. :) Something i never did when I was younger... so... ecstatic over my achievement! More runs to come!

still can't get it right

After trying to get to Tiger for a few days...but to no avail. This is what i found in my mailbox. Angry, disappointed, pissed...... So much for reminding me of the great deal I had! Dear Tiger airways... you sure did remind me of my flight to BKK... and it sure was a GREAT DEAL! Great deal of pain and frustration! Thanks for the GREAT  DEAL of customer service you provided.... !!!

fly not with Tiger Airways

Image
Weeks after booking myself a flight to BKK, and  being extremely pleased with the upcoming holiday.... i was notified by the airline that " For operational reasons, some changes have been made to your flight schedule..." So... they made the decision (without my consultation of coz!) to push my return flight to the next day, which means I needed to stay another night in BKK. The notice below left me no choice but to accept their counter offer... becoz dun u think it sounded like if i dun accept... i will forfeit the $$ i paid for the flight?! Well... anyway.... I am not a difficult customer to start of with... and acknowledging that the airline probably have somewhere in their terms and conditions that they reserve the right to change their flight schedules at their own discretion... I compliantly accepted the updated itinerary and went on to reserve another night @ the hotel (which is obviously at a higher price). That done.... i was once again pleased with myself...
