I bought it specially for me to bring it to Bangkok to take pics. I have been looking for a camera that is not too expensive, affordable to me, compact, high in pixels. This is the camera...
I will be doing my new full time job soon. It gives me the opportunity to have my financial freedom, work from home, decide my own income, and the most importantly to spend more time with momo. Momo already doesn't have a mum so I wants the best for her. I want to give her everything that she deserves to have.
So which company that get me hooked that I can 100%, absolutely, definitely, without a shadow of a doubt willingly to work for the rest of my life in?
Want to hear more about my trip to the Herbalife Bangkok Extravaganza? Of cos' I want to share with all of you my beloved peeps, I can't wait to break out the fantastic news to all of you, I simply have so much to share with all of you but I have to keep the best for the last. Ha!
So just read on and then you will see the pics that I took during the trip. Before I carry on, there are some nice pics that I took the week before I went to Bangkok. I doesn't know if you feel the same as me, but I think it's nice sceneries.
Taken at Hotel Rendezvous... I was taking Orlando for a walk cos' he was on a holiday to Singapore from all the way from Philippines. This pic, basically I had to sit on the floor to capture this shot.
This pic, it was taken at Esplanade. Nice view across the Marina Bay...
Okay, here comes to my trip...
I flew to Bangkok, Thailand on the 24th July. First time to Thailand... I used to hear so many times that how cheap the things there are, many people specially went there to shop and buy and shop and buy. I didn't went there to buy, I did bought a few things there but the main reason why I got the chance to be there is thanks to Herbalife!!!
I took the Airasia flight there. First time taking budget airlines. The feeling isn't that too bad, well it was just a 1 hour plus 2 hour flight so it doesn't really matter if you're taking a budget plane or a SQ flight. I took a nap soon after I board the plane and when I wake up, it was almost reaching Bangkok. See?
We are so lucky to be able to stay in Asia Hotel. There is a "MRT" station connected to this hotel. I doesn't know what it is called in Thailand so.... I didn't check it out the train service cos' I didn't have time to. We check it to the hotel, rest for a while and then we went shopping. For me, it was more like window shopping. I budget myself not to buy unnecessary things back home. Do you know that more than half of the rooms in Asia is booked by Herbalife distributors? We are the PhD... Professional Herbalife Distributors.
This is the MBK shopping mall. The things there are cheap and nice... We had our dinner there, steamboat yum yum... Well, when times to eat we eat, when times to enjoy we enjoy, when times to lose weight, we lose weight (when we go back to Singapore).
After dinner we went back to Asia Hotel to put our things in our room and.... we went for Thai massage. All the way went to Thailand of cos' must go for the Thai massage. Guess how much was it? Cheap cheap... only 500 baht for 2 hours, about SGD$18. The massage is so shiok... 9 of us went and we were all lying side by side, didn't hold hands but you see me pain pian i see you shiok shiok. Well, this is the life of Herbalife. We work together we play together we enjoy together.
After a bone-cracking, finger pressing session, we went to the night market nearby, Suan Lum. I should have took pics at the stalls itself but I was so busy looking for things to buy that I basically forget about it. NO PROBLEM!! I did manage to buy a carrier for my huge 2 litres water bottle. Next time if got chance then I show to you ok?
Somewhere at the back of Suan Lam... I snap it when we are walking towards our van that is going to pick us up back to the hotel. Do you know that the cabs there are mostly Toyota Altis? Of cos' lah, Altis is manufactured in Thailand mah...
We reached our hotel, 1 plus am Bangkok time. And we have to wake up at 4am. The coach is not going to wait for any latecomers. Wow... So exciting cos' it's going to have 20,000 supervisors attending the event, from 13 different countries from the Asia Pacific.
Which company can organise such a big event every year? Last year the Extravaganza held in Singapore Expo we got 17000 supervisors attending and you know how much the Singapore economy benefits from just a 4 day event? It was reported that the revenue generated from the air flights, hotel accommodations, travel, food we ate, shopping... was about SGD$20 million?!?! It was unbelievable.
The event was held at Impact Exhibition & Convention Center. The journey from Asia Hotel to Impact was about 45 mins, so can catch some sleep on the bus too. Even though the time zone is one hour difference, Bangkok is one hour behind Singapore time ( I know many of you already know that, yeah ok...) but the streets is already so bright at 6am, just like in Singapore when it was 7am. Normally in Singapore 6am is still dark but not there in Thailand.
Oh no, this is not everyone who went to Bangkok in this photo. It was just a small handful of us. The rest are taking their own photos elsewhere. I was the camera-man so I wasn't inside.
All of us waiting for the door to be opened cos' it was too early. The entrance will be opened at 9am and we were already there at 7am. It's not that we are kiasu but can you imagine there will be 20,000 supervisors attending this event. It's gonna be a human wall. Just from China alone there are 7000 of them, they already made up 1/3 of the attendance.
Yeah, everyone need to be screened, bags checked and no large baggage are allowed in the event hall. In the past, there is no such thing but since after so many bombings, everywhere you go it's about the same procedures.
These are just the early birds... Wait till you read on later... You will get shocked...
See, finally you can see me appearing...
Me taking pics with David Beckham... Ha! Just in case you're wondering what does David Beckham got to do with Herbalife? We sponsor LA Galaxy and you can see he is wearing a Herbalife jersey. If such a world famous footballer player choose Herbalife, then what are you waiting for?
This is one of our Herbalife doctors, Dr Luigi Gratton. I tell you, he is a really nice guy. He got no airs and he is so well-loved by everyone. Just remember him, okay....
Has addressed over 6,000 audiences and 4 million people worldwide
Is the author of 17 different books, audio and video programs
Has been internationally hailed over the years as one of the most influential thinkers of our time
Next year Extravaganza 2009 will be at KINTEX, Korea!!!.. Wow, I can't wait to go to Korea for the 3rd time. No way I'm going to miss this event. Summer season, can't wait to see all those kimchi gals. Maybe I will bring momo over too. I think next year momo will be old enough to talk, right?
These 2 big head dolls are so cute and friendly. They were about to have their break when I approached them for a photo taking and they agreed. Dunno if they are guy or gal behind the costumes. Both guys or both gals or.... never mind.
Herbalife in Japan too!!! 6th country...
See, I didn't bluff you, right? 13 countries from the Asia Pacific region.
I want to go, I want to go papa... I'm a Herbalife baby...
Piak, you be good and papa will take you there next year... now go and drink your milk first...
This was the 2nd day of the event. You can see along the slope they were rushing towards the door when it opened. All are rushing for the seats, all rushing to get in to the hall, all are rushing to be part of the event. Here we are all Herbalife family members, regardless of your race, your gender, your nationality, your age, your height, your weight (no fat ppl here cos' all of us are products of the product)... 20,000 supervisors with 20,000 product testimonials with 20,000 stories to tell why they want to do this business. Can you feel the passion?
Down there, you will suddenly be a patriot of your own country. You will love your country flags, waving and carrying it wherever you go.
More crowds coming in, more and more crowds coming to this event hall.

Can you guess what is this healthy old man's age? He is from the country of Taiwan!! He is 92 years already this year!! If a 92 years old grandfather can be at this event, and if he is with Herbalife, then what excuse for us to have for not to be there?
I was in queue for autography by Dr Luigi cos' I bought his book.
I got so much fun during these 4 days. We exchange buttons from the other countries, you just walk around and if you see any nice ones, you just approached them and ask if you can have one of theirs in exchange for one of yours.
This baby is so cute!!! It's a Herbalife baby from Taiwan... You know what, her mum take our products when she was pregnant with her, all the way from conceiving till birth and there you see how good looking and healthy she looks
Of cos' I won't let go any chance to take pics with gals, esp korean gals. Well, they change buttons with me on the last day so we just take a photo together.
Ever since I joined Herbalife, I have learn to smile. It comes naturally. That is the side effects of taking Herbalife products. I will see them in KINTEX, Korea next year. Dame Boja...
And these are the buttons I have exchange from the other countries. Well, in fact most of them are from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia.
It was truly a life experiencing for me. It gives me a chance to see so many people who wants to change their lives, some already changed their lives, some is trying to change their lives. Here in Herbalife, you dun need to be the top notch salesman, you dun need to have any sales experience, you dun need to know how to talk, you dun need to think how to do your business. All you need to do is to follow, follow the footsteps of those people who have succeeded. Here you will never need to walk alone. There will always be someone who will guide you all the way, from those who earned USD$200,000 a month, from those who is so poor that they have no roof over their top, from those who used to stay in a house that is so small that if he was to invite 4 people to have dinner 2 of them have to sit outside, from those people who used to live in the drains, from those who were farmers milking cows, from those who has to pack a rice cooker when she go to the Extravaganza cos' she can't afford the food there, from those who earned only a USD$1 per day, from those who can't even afford to take a bus and have to walk 3 miles to send his daughter to school.
Cos' Herbalife mission is: Changing People's Lives.
Believe it , Achieve it.
Our products are not meant to sell, it is fulfilling ones needs.
MLM is not Multi-level Marketing, it's means Making Lives Meaningful.
Before I end I would like to share with all of you one story:
At this town there are many little frogs gathered together for a compeitition. They all want to get to the top of the tower. Many people were shouting to them "It's too tall, you can never make it!" Some frogs simple just give up. So the rest start to climb up to the top. As times goes by, more and more frogs give up cos' people were shouting to them "It's too tall, you can never make it!" More and more frogs give up, more and more frogs give up. But there is this little frog who still continue to climb up to the top, he just refused to give up and finally he reached the top. Everyone is so stunned how did he make it to the top whereas every other frogs had failed. In fact this little frog is nothing special, just that he is..... deaf.
