I don’t know why other people can go on business trips and tour along the way while mine is always like a military training camp.

Will be leaving for Bangkok tomorrow night, my 8-day schedule came from the other side today. On average, I get out of the hotel at 5.30 am and it’s off to work work work. Worse, I will be making day trips to places with names I can’t even pronounce all the time. Saturday and Sunday would also be work. Thankfully attapchee is considerate enough to write an e-mail (plea) to the other side and ask for sunday to  be off for me. Even then, it was not based on the reason that Sundays are for people to rest, it was through the tactful excuse of “Could you kindly excuse my staff that day so that she can stay in to complete her outstanding work” In any case, I am thankful to attapchee.

Everyone tells me “Hey you can shop in Bangkok now!” To me, this whole thing is just an extended version of my usual biz trip. Meetings, meetings, events events….meetings meetings…Then people will tell me “Go out at night lah! It cannot be that you are working the whole day right?” Bingo.

Why? Actually I know the blasted answer. I work in a Japanese company. That’s why.

Why am I still making pie charts and reading about Cambodia at this hour.

It is not logical.
