Sawadee Krab ...


I always knew this would be a hectic week. Just how hectic it turned out to be, turned out to be a big surprise. I literally woke up this morning with a headache, from all the lack of sleep and the amount of work that materialised. I went back to bed to give myself the best chance of recovery.


Just look at the calendar for the week. And that's just the confirmed meetings ...

Thursday and Friday was spent in Bangkok. Arrived at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport for the first time. I like the fact that I cleared Immigration really quickly. But it was chaotic on the inside. And our place parked far away from the terminal and we had to be bussed into the terminal. So, why do you build the world's largest airport terminal and have planes park away from it?

On the positive, it's really huge. Like huge. Like you better check in and be in the airport an hour before your flight time. There must be a few Changis worth of duty free ... and plenty of food joints. It's definately a nice airport. So when it rained and I had a lot of time to kill in the airport, I sat down at this observation deck bar and had a nice, cold beer. *buuuuurp* ... there goes my week of gym work ...





Thursday and Friday were a blur of meetings, preparing the meeting materials and nice food after the meetings.

Food highlights is from dinner at the Erawan tearoom. Anyone who serves lemongrass tea is good in my books. Everyone should try this drink at least once.



Just glad it's over.

it's funny ain't it? spelt suvarnabhumi but pronounced as suewannaphoom .. ?

pelf:
actually, it is probably bigger than the HKIA ... but no trains yet connecting the airport to Bangkok ... you can still see it being built.

We took a hotel taxi that costs ... THB2100 !!!

I suppose it's calming in one sense. But business travel is more often hectic ... no real time for one to wander and explore.

The upside is you get to eat expensive stuff, if that's what you want ...
