My Room Away From Home

I’m blessed to have a job that gives me opportunity to travel. This year, since January, I’ve been always away from home for almost every week. Though I really love to travel (traveling always excites me), frequent trips is physically exhausting, tiring… You packed and unpacked, check-in your luggage, wake-up early and skip some meals. Not to mention that I drive myself to and from the airport. Thank God to Park n Fly.

One of the perks of business travel is to stay in a nice hotel. You deserve it anyway, after a long tiring field work or meeting, all you want to do next is to get a decent sleep. I thought of sharing my rooms away from my room at home for the past two months of business trips! I love my job!

Last January 9-14 2012, Monsanto held its Regional Supply Chain and Customer Operations meeting in Belle Villa Resort, Chiang Mai. Belle Villa is a 4-star mountain resort in Thailand.

Belle Villa main lobby, you can also find here “The Terrace” where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the other side of the terrace is a swimming pool. I didn’t see anyone swim in here in my entire 4 days stay, I’m sure you’ll find yourself chilling if you do.

You will find a park called “Place de L’ Amour”, located right before the lobby. You can climb this yellow tower, and see the view of the resort.

A view from my room. I used to stay in the veranda every morning for quiet time and prayer. Perfect place to meditate, relax and feel the cool wind.

My room is love… Twin-sharing bed. I wish my sister is with me 🙂

Field Visit at Monsanto Chiang Rai

Field Visit at Monsanto Chian Rai

Part of the Supply Chain and Customer Ops team meeting last January 2012 is to visit Monsanto Research field and office in Chiang Rai, Thailand. We travel 4 hours from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai by a very convenient, high-tech double decker tourist bus. I love the bus, because it is complete with chair massager, LCD TV, food, toilet, foot rest and blanket. I just forget to take a picture of it. We also have a chance to see great scenery of Northern part of Thailand.

In Monsanto Research Office, the Research team, present to us, what the team is doing for Monsanto AP. The people here are so nice, they offer us more food, wet towels, and lot of drinks.

Me and the rest of the team enjoy visiting the field, with all these green houses and vegetables around. We have a greater appreciation of our job and the products we offer to our customers.
