    Petroleum Thai Corp or PT for short is getting more popular in Thailand these days with more gasoline stations opening. This brand new station is less than a month old near my place.

    555 just been there not too long ago. Me regular visitor there lah. But no sofitel lah. Must say quite comfortable staying there. Language and food no problem. A little not used to driving there as it is left hand drive. Turn left always never watch out for Traffic.

    Good morning everyone. It is very nice to wake up and have a nice cuppa fresh one.

    Breakfast in Swissotel Le Concorde Bangkok

    IMG_20180511_082236.jpg

    Had a very enjoyable evening last night - firstly dinner with a Japanese customer from Malaysia celebrating ousting of Najib, went for a nice walk with a friend in Huay Khwang night market, had midnight supper with her at a little Korean restaurant and then finally a great evening in Swissotel. Will post them pictures later.
