Colorful Bus

I am now in Bangkok. I flew in together with my wife on Thursday evening who has been staying in KL since New Year eve. I am here to attend (as spouse) the company annual trip for the Thailand branch to a place called Khao Yai. This will be the second time that I have been there. It’s some sort like our Taman Negara. My wife woke up around 4.30 am on Friday morning to prepare my lunch as we anticipate that there is a possibility that there will be nothing much I can eat for lunch.

We are supposed to be in the office at 7 am as the charted tour bus is schedule to leave sharp at 7 am. I told my wife by Thai standard that will be a tall order as the thai people I know will always follows “Sony” time and not “Sharp” time. This means by default there will always be a delay as Bangkokians are “control” by bad traffic or they will use the traffic as an excuse. We reached the office at around 6:50 after taking a “van” and LRT.

When we reached the office, there were a few waiting, hence to burn some time, I chat with some of my thai colleague, have a cup of Milo, 3 slices of bread, chat with "Sim Tan" , she is still around in BKK, from what I heard it will be a while before she finally moves to somewhere else. We finally get bored and hot from waiting in the office, as the centralize air cond system will not be on until 8.30 am. We continue to wait in the bus and finally the last person arrives at 8 am. He was late as he is the breakfast guys that are suppose to buy Char Siew Rice for some of them.

We finally left the parking lot after 8 am. Along the way I saw some colorful bus, which I think you could only find it in Thailand. I will post more on this trip in another post....
