:.. One Night in Bangkok ..:

24th August 2008 ~ 29th August 2008, the week where I will be at BANGKOK for Wafer Map training. I departed at 9:10pm (Malaysia time) and reach at Bangkok airport at 10:10pm. You must be wondering why it only takes 1 hours ride, hahah~ Actually it took us 2 hours, as Bangkok time is one hour earlier as compare to Malaysia time. So we reached at 11:10pm (Malaysia time).

Charusen, Nutthakitta (a.k.a) as Kae fetch us from airport, and drive us to the "unhaunted" hotel (Dusit Thani). Again, you must be wondering why i mentioned unhaunted, let me tell you a story. Its began when Kung Hui Juin ( a collegue from Spansion) saying KL Wafer Map team will be staying in other hotel (CourtXXXX MarriXXt - censored to prevent from being sued by this hotel), and unfortunately some "bad" things experienced by KL collegues who used to stay there for their last training. There are some non-serious and serious cases, which make my "bulu roma" stands up. Non-serious - "something knocking the door", serious - "something jumping on the bed". OMG!!! I'll be staying in that hotel??? Can't be what..!!!

But Thank GOD! We had successfully influenced other collgues to change the hotel to Dusit Thani. :) And here i am in a safe hotel for 5 nights. Don't waste time, let's continue with my journey..Once we dropped our luggage, and checked-in, we move out butt immediately to "Jatuchak Market", a place famous with cheap stuffs. It'a also famous with a place that pack of peoples and bargain. So for the shopping purpose, i had prepare a guideline, wishing to get the lowest price as possible.

The Thailand-English Dictionary that i brought

Kae and Namfon guide us around, helping us to bargain for the best price, being the translator for us. Hahahah~ And here it goes, with the items i managed to grab. Some of it from Jatuchak Market, and some of them from Robinson Bangkok.

After our shopping day, it's time to work, means it's time to spend time on training already. The training started Tuesday, and will ended coming Friday. This is the first time to Bangkok, as a "spansioner", first time attending training with Hui Juin, first time meeting friendly Bangkok spansioners, first time staying alone in Bangkok hotel (after Hui Juin leaving on Wednesday), first time being far family for so long, etc etc etc.....

But one thing for sure, "they" Bangkok spansioners are very friendly, as they filled our nights in Bangkok with leisure and pleasure. They brought us to Catuchak market, PatPong Market, Suan Lum Night Bazzar, famous MBK Plaza, and treat us for lunch and dinner. Personally thanks to BIG, BOYD, KAE, YOM and Namfon. You guys are the best!! We manage to catch our special moments. Let's the picture talks....

Promotional CBT Poster

That girl with black-white dress girl looks so familiar...Hmmmm...Arrrr....Ooopsss.. It's me! *whuhuhuhu*. This is Spansion's CBT (computer-based-training) promotional brochure that used to attract employees to join any computer-based trainings as planned by the company.

Fortunately-unfortunately i was choosen to be one of the "model" in this poster. I was asked to show below expression ;

--> Happy while surfing
--> Excited while surfing
--> Enjoying while surfing
--> Show how i LOVE ♥ surfing
--> Show how i LOVE ♥ computer
--> Show how i fall in love ♥ with computer

I took few takes before the photographer (trainer from HR) satisfied with the collection of photos taken. I was so suprised when it got published on the notice board, and being circulated to every staffs/employees in Spansion. I was so pai-seh, as i did not realizing how "wat-tat = ugly" i look in it. They did not touch-up the photo at all. I look so fat, look so dull, look so *acting*. Grrrr~~~

However, it's my first *model* collection. Hahahah ..*konon*

.. Happy Wedding Day Hartinee ..

NG shot : Hello!??!! Where is the camera??!!

Us + the future bride + future owned microwave

Me with Hartinee + mock Microwave (printed on a paper)

Brand : Sharp, Model :R658LS, Compact Grill Microwave Oven

Hartinee, my colleague from Spansion is GETTING MARRY. She is from IT department as well, but from different division. She is from Infrastructure, where you can find her if your mouse not working,if your printer not printing,if your network not functioning, if your email hanging...etc.....

She will end her life as single lady as well, *thinking* why got so many people get married this year??? So we (IT colleagues + ex-spansioners) decided to buy her something for her wedding. After further discussion, we decided to buy her a microwave oven. It cost us RM499.00, shared by 10 persons = RM49.90 per person. Kah Wai bought it yesterday and pass to her end of today. So for memory, we capture the moment, the future bride and the future owned micrwowave.
