St. Regis Beijing, You Will be Surprised by the Price!

St Regis Beijing

A Diplomat's Hotel

Visited July 2015

China is definitely one of the great places for hotel stays and I finally visited Beijing for my birthday.

The main objective of this trip was to see the Great Wall of China and 2 sections were close to Beijing, namely the Badaling and Mutianyu sections.

I decided on the Mutianyu section and it was breathtaking!

Slips in Service as Sheraton Samui Shapes Up

Saved by Service Recovery for Staggering Slip-up

As well as several smaller situations

Visited May 2015

View of the hotel pool and beach

Koh Samui is one of the resort islands in the Gulf of Thailand, arguably the most visited in that region, definitely contributed by the presence of an airport on the island itself.

For this trip, I flew via Silkair Business from Singapore to Koh Samui by redeeming my precious  Kirsflyer miles. The paid rates were going for SGD$800+ per person for economy!

Shocking attitude from a Charity Organisation Leader

A Reflection for 2015

This would be my first personal entry in the blog as some of my readers would like to know me more as a person and understand my character and values.

With a very heavy heart, I decided to write about my incident with a friend (who has since un-friended me on Facebook as well).

I was very angry and struggled to control my emotions during and after the incident.

Ghosts knocking on the door? Intercontinental Park Lane

A Sleepless night in London

Visited April 2015

After the brief visit of Paris (which I hope is recovering well from the Friday 13th attacks), we found ourselves in London.

For non-Singaporeans, Singapore was under British rule previously until 1963 (to become part of Malaysia) and declared independence in 1965. She celebrates her 50th year of Independence this year!

The hotel is located near Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace, which was great to watch the Changing The Guards Ceremony as the palace is just a short walk away.
