It has been ages since I updated this page!! This is sort of a diary and this is just to let my thoughts out so don’t expect an exceptional kind of writing….A lot has happened since I last posted and let me post about it next time (weh). 2014??? JUICECOLORED DAMI KONG PINAGDAANAN BESH (SA TRABAHO, SA PUSO, SA PAGKAKAIBIGAN, SA PAMILYA, SA KALUSUGAN. DAMI KO DING NAPUNTAHAN!!! CHECKED NA YUNG SOUTH CHINA SEA!!! SORRY I FORGOT TO TELL YOU MY DEAR DIARY)! Anyway, what happened is finished. Moving on to the purpose of this post...
Last month, prolly during my birthday week, the office asked if my passport was still okay because they’ll send me to Thailand at the end of the month. At first I was really hesitant (luh. ang arte ko forevs) because my mother’s birthday fell on one of those dates I was supposed to be away (I'm such a clingy daughter hahahah)…but with all her blessings, she said it was okay. There was also so much going on in the south and I was planning to go there but I realized this opportunity does not come often (and I was kind of stressed out with social media trolls, pseudo experts, and work at that time) so why not?! This could change my fate and maybe I'd become a lifestyle reporter....Hahahahahh JK. Anyway, let’s go.
I was sent out to join Thailand’s educational tour sponsored by Thai Airways and Tourism Authority of Thailand….so there, we have to relish every bit of Thailand (sometimes I really, sincerely, truly love my job!!!). I will not blog about the whole five-day trip because we had too many activities, so maybe separately. And I had interesting and inspiring people with me (I think ready na ako ipagpalit ang trabaho ko hahahahah jk), which also needs another separate blog post. I will just describe our flight for now.
Thai Airways treated us with their Business Class seats…They call it Royal Silk Class. Well I’ve never been in one so this makes it my first time!!! Too bad the flight was only about three hours!! I'm always anxious during flights because I have fear of heights but this one...SOBRANG BITIN!!! First, I checked in early and so I was at the first row and at the window seat just the way I like it. Their baggage allowance is 40 kilos, in case you're curious.
We were on a Boeing 777-300— there is enough room for my legs to stretch, I think we can lie down up to 180 degrees if we wanted (I'm not sure) but I didn’t try (OA ah three hours lang). The crew were friendly. And my favorite part, the food:
That’s the menu…I tried a few wine and champagne just because I was excited….Hahahaha. I wasn’t really hungry during the flight because I had Jollibee before the flight and our lounge at the NAIA 1 also had plenty of food, too. They had an appetizer, light first course and a main course of your choice….They had cheese, fruits, tea, coffee, juice….and they are available as much as you want.
We could watch movies and listen to music (but I think the choices were a bit limited. I had a movie in mind but it wasn’t there….So I ended up watching London Has Fallen). The rest of the flight I just enjoyed the skies and tried to sleep. I had to enjoy the pillow and the blanket even for a short while.
What I also liked about it is you have your own outlet although I really didn’t need it at that time. Our lavatory also had designer scents and hand creams, which was really cool (but again it’s no big deal with me if it isn’t. It could be Watson's and I won't really mind hahahaha char).
Now I realized the importance of Business Class — I wish I could afford it when the time comes I will have long haul flights ala US and Europe (hahahaha kelan kaya pwe feelingera). Cheap flights are alright if you will fly domestic, but I now see why Business Class is also great deal. If comfort is important to you, that is. And you have a lot of money to spare (which I don't hahahah). On a second thought, I still feel at home and comfortable when I ride a Philippine C-130.
Thai Airways is a member of Star Alliance, one of the world’s largest global airline alliances. And by the way, Thai Airways' slogan is “smooth as silk”…which lives up to it. I hope I can fly with them again!!!
My stories about my trip are not yet finished...maybe I will just post the link once it's done!! Cheers!!
