Bangkok - City of a Thousand Smiles

After months of anticipation, we finally got to get on with our company trip to Bangkok. Simone said i should be counting my lucky stars since I get to go overseas on my first company trip. Well, I have to admit that my luck had been pretty good since joining JLT. More on my luck later.

Being shutter bug, i literally when trigger happy in Bangkok. Hack, it already started when I was still on Malaysian soil. I shot 500++ pics and i am still not satisfied.....

Of 2 Weddings and a World Cup Final

It was a hectic weekend....Saturday night was Weslin's wedding at Saujana Subang.....

8 JLTs, 2 Marsh and 1 Mitsui Sumitomo

Workgroup 2 leng luis

Next day morning, I like Kimi drove my CLK along the PLUS Highway and a fair bit of trunk road from Tangkak to Segamat to attend my classmates', Hong Woon Chao and Fong Wai Shee, wedding at Tai Ah Air Cond Restaurant. (Yes, they are my age, now wipe off that smirk on your face :p) Good opportunity to meet up with some long "lost" classmates there...

2 Wongs and an Ong

The SRJK (C) Li Chi gang...almost all anyway...

The Ong doing a number in honour the bride and groom

After 2 heavy wedding to come was the long awaited World Cup Final...the blasi eye-ta-lians against the frenchies. I really did not understand how the bladi pizzas boys got their asses into the final...they were damn lucky to get the freakin' penalty against the Aussies. For Christ's sake that bugger Grosso obviously did a dive ala WW 2 dive bomber. They were again lucky that the krauts did not play up to their standards during the semis after the no brainer quarter against ukraine. All the respect I have for Cannavaro was overshadowed by the play acting and shomanship of the other pizza boys.

The antics of the Pasta boys again played a big part in the final. Firstly, most of the bladi italians went down as if they got hit by a freight train after getting the slightest of touches. Then there was the Zidane incident. I am not saying that Zidane did not deserve the red card......but the Zen-like maestro would not had done such a thing if there was no serious provocation..i reallly hope that FIFA would look into the comments of the friggin' Materazzi that provoked Zizou...and come on...don't tell me that a tough as a nut defender who dishes out crunching tackles will hit the deck as he did after receiving a head butt...not that Zidane trained under a shao lin master to learn 铁头功

Bye Bye Aviva...Hello Mitsui Sumitomo

In cantonese we call this 踢馆(tek gun)...^_^"'

I had been working in JLT for almost year and every morning when i arrive at the office, I will be greeted by the familiar Aviva signboard. However, starting from next Monday (actually officially today)...Aviva will ceased to exist...Aviva had sold their SEA operations to Mitsui Ajinomoto....errr...Sumitomo actually :p Actually the deal was done sometime ago and they took something doing their intergration etc etc....

Monica had been going "sayonara Aviva" for the whole of yesterday...and to get in the mood...i had been greeting them Ohaiyo and konijiwa :D Best of all i had been teasing Jane nee-san that she will have to do group morning exercise on Monday morning and sing "Go, Nippon, Go:...ahahaha.

Must watch for everyone at Aviva ...ahahahahha
