pullman bangkok king power

first things first; happy chinese new year!
i've escaped the dragon dancing and the forking out of cash-fulled red pockets this year and escaped to thailand.
with k-chan's belly growing as fast as jack's beanstalk, this trip looks like it could be the last one for a while. what a scary thought...
being able to forget all about crazy office politics and travel was the only think that kept me sane up until now, so watch out, mr sekimachihato may get a bit crazy as we head further into 2010.

pullman bangkok king power.
someone was extremely drunk or high when they came up with this name for a hotel.
god it's an ugly name. the words "pullman" and "bangcockok" just don't go well together...

it gets even worse when you throw in a powerful king into the equation!
but get that image out of your dirty mind because there is nothing dirty about this hotel.
i stayed here on my last trip to bangkok just over a year ago and always hoped i could come back.

i will let my photos do the talking (in other words i don't have time to give a wonderful run-down on this serene haven in bustling bangkok)

k-chan and i have smuggled our little one into thailand (his second overseas trip already!) and invited my parents over here for a belated 60th birthday celebration.
i'm such a good son.

Lovely hotel!! And yes, you are a good son. Better than I am a good daughter. I forget to greet my parents Happy New Year and Valentine's Day. THEY called me to greet us! I'm a bad daughter!a

whoever came up with that name must have been high on somethin'. but who cares, the hotel looks divine! hope you have a good time. don't worry about poor ol' me. i'll just freeze my ass off here in norway while you bask in the sun. that's ok!

Oh how beautiful! have fun with K-chan and cherish the moments because one the baby is here both of
your attention will go to her/him :D

p.s. yea, weird name! haha

Woa! So you DID go. Hope it was all good. Hope k-chan didn't have any problems.

btw that's the hotel i stayed at when I went a couple months ago too! what a coincidence. I had similar thoughts when I saw the name...

i felt bad that i couldn't go to new zealand for my dad's 60th party, so shouting him (and mum) a nice vacation at the pullman was a good choice.
it's a great hotel and it does a pretty amazing breakfast too!
