Gee, I’m so happy to be back in the world’s friendliest country! This trip has been a bit different so far from my normal shopping and sight seeing, because I have been mainly working.
The Royal Thai Embassy arranged my visit to Bangkok so that I could attend Bangkok Fashion Week and spend some time at the world famous Blue Elephant Cooking School. Louis Wattana from the Thai Embassy in South Africa also arranged that I stay at the Amari Watergate Hotel which has proven to be an absolute bonus for a business trip.
Even by Thai standards the Amari staff are particularly friendly and courteous. Our executive room is fabulous with the best bed I have slept on for many years. I have had one or two organisational issues on this trip which have been smoothly resolved by Amari – the general manager and resident manager have always been available to give help when necessary.
I am currently blogging from the Executive Lounge sipping on a free Mai Tai and nibbling on a complimentary snack platter (from 5 – 7pm every day!) from the buffet which includes smoked salmon, spare ribs, crispy roast duck and spicy chick peas – happy hour has become ecstatic hour!!!
I think its time to get my dress pressed for Bangkok Fashion Show tomorrow but hang on…..here comes my next Mai Tai!
Sadly, tomorrow is our last day in Bangkok but I feel quite cheerful because on Thursday we kick off the second leg of this trip at the Amari Palm Reef in Koh Samui.
Enjoy and take lots of photos.
Will do, Priscilla! We are having a blast and enjoying the food – it is incredibly hot here! I will post another blog soon!
