I just came back from my 3 day 2 night company retreat to Bangkok. It was also my first company trip overseas. I still remembered I was extremely excited when they called me over the phone if I’m ok to join them on this trip even before I have joined the company. I immediately agreed the next day after informing my husband.
However, I became extremely worried when the day is getting near. Because the retreat was during the Vesak day long holiday, I began to wish that I did not agree to this overseas trip and I can enjoy my long weekend at home. Is this call “出差恐惧症”? This was also my mere second time to Bangkok after more than 10 years. Worst still, the last time I went with my family and we had a personal guide so I didn’t really get to explore Bangkok. So this should be considered as my first time there so I’m really feeling scare.
During my 3 days 2 nights there, I’m glad that I have gone for this trip if not I would have missed out a lot. I met a great shopping partner! Haha. Think I go about telling people about her/ this group. They look out for each other, help to check each other’s purchases and brought me to many nice shopping places such as Platinum shopping mall, MBK, Big C..etc. I also got introduced to the must buy “Naraya Bags”. I was shocked when I see the crowd in the Naraya shop but it was really cheap! On average about SGD 10 for one bag!
Here I go! On board Singapore Airline!
Where I stayed for 2 nights! Radddison Suite, it was a nice, comfortable and cosy hotel! However, it was not of walking distance to any shopping malls nor MRT. But the hotel does provide free Tuk Tuk service to it’s nearest mrt station.
First meal when I reached there. This is however just part of the meal! It is a bee hoon desert, not the usual fried or soup bee hoon we had in Singapore.
Where we had our dinner after a long day at “Cabbage and Condom”.
It is a nice place with cozy ambience, something different! After the dinner, we proceed to Big C where we start shopping for maggie mee, snacks and Naraya bags!
Breakfast served by the hotel the next morning! I had a sound sleep despite my first night there!
After meeting, we proceed to Platinum mall for our shopping spree!
We shopped for the whole afternoon and went back to hotel after our late dinner.
Went to MBK on our last day there where I bought my handphone casing and got introduce to MK where we had our late lunch!
Dinner back on SQ!
My shopping loots!
The green curry, greatly recommended by my colleague! The red curry and tom yum set I got from the airport, looks great!
