I am back:) Opss i had a great time in Bangkok! Despite not going out for more than 100 metres from the Hotel throughout the 4 days ;i had a fabulous time:) Seriously, i didn't go out from the hotel at all! I attended meeting,conference and ate in the hotel, called VIP Massage in my room,went to the connected shopping Mall, did my manicure,pedicure, cut my hair at the salon, shopping, all within the Hotel compound! But i had a great time- Tia Mia should be angry at me:);) I enjoyed my "me time"- after nearly 6 years not knowing what is 'me time"- i found it to be relaxing and refreshing- not that the everyday life with family is stressful, it's just that once a while you need a time of you own,pamper your body and relax you mind;)
So i ve got few pictures to share here but please pardon me with some syok sendiri pictures- tak ada orang nak ambik gambar kan- kena lah snap sendiri:);) And to all ladies out there if you didn't give time to yourself please do so now- no need to go far- just walk somewhere and enjoy your self- we all deserved it:)
The start of my journey- i posted in my fb- " no fun traveling alone" ha ha at this time was still worried about leaving the girls at home:)
My comfortable companion that made noise when i walked through the sensor gate- but I still love it:):)
One check in and one laptop bag for the journey.
After 2hrs flight i arrived Bangkok- along the way to Hotel nothing much that caught my attention and i still rasa Bangkok macam tak best,tak safe:)ye lah selalu ada bodyguards kan;)
But i found this building next to the Hotel quite interesting and i snapped its picture.
My Deluxe room which was wonderful:)
Complimentary fruits that came with "Sawadikap".
Unique design on the wall- it was a picture of Bangkok roads "Now and Then" by an English artist.
Then snap satu picture of myself;)
Bangkok at night from my window.
Big shopping Mall across the road with Robinson and Top Market- but i didn't go,do you believe it? So good of me:)
It was 4.00pm in the evening after spending 2 hours at the Hotel connected shopping mall- I called for VIP massage from the Hotel Spa:) It was so nice to have massage in the comfort of your own room, unlike at the Spa - the bed was soft, you can watch TV or sleep and no need to walk or drive back dengan badan berminyak after you ve done, just continue sleeping and the lady already filled my bathtub with warm water and orchid petals- so heavennnn:)
After massage and warm bath i called a room service:) I ve ordered Prawn Tom Kha Ghai and egg salad - Tom Kha Ghai is Bangkok style Tom Yam with coconut milk and lots of galangal (lengkuas)
I slept like a baby and woke up early - see tak ada lagi car on the road.
I had a good breakfast at the cafe- my favourite which we can't find here is Smoked Red Snapper- sedapnya makan dengan porridge;)
Then the meeting pun mula, bila dah mula tak habis2- 8.00am to 5.30pm!.
But we had a good lunch- lunch was hosted by National Broadcasting of Thailand (NBT) and they prepared muslim food for me and fellow muslim brothers from Iran,Turki and Maldives. And nothing like eating Mango with sticky rice in bangkok- so sedappp:)
The tiramisu was equally delicious and i cannot resist every time i went for lunch/dinner.
After the long meeting i went for manicure and pedicure at the shopping Mall next to the hotel- there's so many manipedi,massage and hair salon here- and they are cheaper than Malaysia- if manipedi cost you RM80 and above in Malaysia-here you only pay RM45. After the manipedi- I went to the salon next door and had my hair cut:) I didn't cut my hair for nearly setengah tahun! Totally tak ada masa- the girl at the Saloon cut and styled my hair like Kak Ros- after the long effort i put back my tudung and she look disappointed:) In the entire hotel and mall i was the only one wearing tudung:);)
After the manipedi and hair cut i went straight to the Dinner in the ballroom hosted by NBT and we had a good dinner there- for muslims we had a special table and they layan us really well:):)
The famous red ruby.
These are the fellow muslim brothers yang share the muslim food with me.They were very nice to me- jaga me like a sister- always bising kalau i tak ada especially kat meja makan because they said i know food very well:) They are lawyers/legal advisers from Iran,Turki and Maldives:):)
After kenyang i went back to hotel room and browsed my notes for less than 5 mins and fell asleep- Instead of worrying about chairing the 3 distinguished speakers with thick accent the next day i dreamed about the massage chair..he he:)
Sebab tak pernah dapat orang kalungkan bunga kat leher masa dinner so i snapped few pictures of myself in orchids:)
So malam tu i tidur enak sekali:)
Next day; ready to chair 3 speakers:) let see whether baju kusut tak? sebab tak gosok:)
Okay sudah siap untuk jadi chair and table;);)
Alhamdulillah the session went well- the organiser (Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union) was satisfied and "stamped" me as "Our Chair person":);) the conference next year will be in Sri Langka! Hmm Sri Langka...what can we buy there? Do they have massage&spa? but Maldives is only 45 mins away by Lanka Air..he he..thanks to all the brothers -they been feeding me with all the good information- what to see and do in Turki,Iran,Maldives etc:)
Free advertisement for "Apple":)
The audience from Asia Pacific region.
Our last dinner and it was very nice:) Thank You NBT:)
Tak shopping banyak pun but bought few things for the girls:)
Devils wear Prada, Gwiyomis wear Pink:)
Bought few Thai silk for Uwan,Heni and the rest - but shopping actually sangat menarik di bangkok Airport- they have Tods,Prada,Bally,Chanel,Longchamp- you name it semua ada- memang sangat giler
bila sampai Airport Bangkok- sampaikan pulut mangga and fresh orchid nak bawak balik pun ada- Between Malaysia and Thailand - our people dua2 Asian- the different they are passionate in doing their works, their service industry is tiptop- they serve you with smile and their nonstop "Sawadikap"- orang kita banyak melayu beragama Islam- tapi nak senyum pun susah,buat kerja half hearted- terkenal dengan "budibahasa" sepatutnnya tapi bahasanya tiada lagi sekarang:(;(
Nite Nite All, may our beautiful country be blessed and we can live in peace and harmony:)
Note : Pictures were taken using my Olympus Camera- some of the pictures were shot using 'softmode' features- which resulted in a nice soft effect. I have taken many pictures using few modes including beauty,panorama, portrait etc,this has been explained in many of my previous entries. Soft mode will give nice effect to portrait images,like in my pictures above, i don't look that good or even pretty- (so don't worry ya people-it'just a trick or in other words just a camera setting only laaa:):) )- you can try too and surely the result will be great because you are all younger and prettier:);) But no matter what the most important is the original you- that's what will be reflected in your shadow,picture or even your writing!:):)
