Party, again! Remembering how awesome the last year end party was, we just had to return to Bali! Our butlers for the 4D3N trip already had our welcome drinks in hand when we arrived at the villas. We kick-started day 1 with strategic planning in the magnificent Villa Nilaya, owned by one of our Vice Presidents, James Greaves. We then headed to Potato Head Beach Club for dinner and drinks, accompanied by the beautiful scenery and soothing sounds of waves.
Day 2 was definitely adrenalin-pumping-fun! All of us were so excited for Waterbom Bali – a water theme park with so many rides that ranged from mellow and relaxing ones all the way to the really extreme ones that brings your heart to your throat. We were all drained after so many hours thrill. Recharged with a quick lunch before we headed to KuDeTa. Of course, we couldn’t miss the chance to try out surfing! After which, we went back to our respective villas to freshen up and went to Metis, a French Mediterranean, fine-dining restaurant for dinner.
Since we were so close to Christmas, we have planned a “beach chic” themed Christmas dinner on day 3 which was prepared by our in-house chef! After the sumptuous meal, we nominated our best & worst dressed people for the night, played some games, and partied our night away.
With heavy hearts, we had to bid our home for 4 days goodbye. BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK AGAIN! Now, we’re really ready for a bigger and better year!
FINALLY – the time has come for us celebrate all our successes and achievements for the year! This year, our regional rally was held at KLCC. The convention centre was booming with over a thousand people from all over Asia and different walks of life, but with the same enthusiasm and excitement for what was in store for us.
Apart from all the medals and awards, we also had the privilege to witness an Organisational Head advancement, and to learn from the different Vice Presidents from across the region!
Of course, one can never have enough celebrations. So off to Bintan we went! For many of us, it was our first time to The Canopi. We were all amazed by how beautiful the entire place was. Apart from the lush greenery, there were also many different water & land activities. Despite all of us turning 2 shades darker, it was definitely time well spent!
#BRX15 – a new hashtag created just for an exceptionally enriching trip. “Bangkok Rookie Exchange 2015” saw 10 personnels from Singapore, visiting different offices to learn from our respective Thai counterparts. We also had the opportunity to witness an “Assistant Owner” advancement. In addition, the new rookies met up with 2 of the very promising owners in Bangkok – Bomp & Jae. We definitely gained a whole lot of new and powerful insights from these young & uprising owners!
The highlight of the trip will, undoubtedly, be the visit to the residence of newly advanced Vice President, Mr Wong Chee Wai. He showed us around his legendary 2-units-combined-into-1 penthouse. We were dumbfounded! Almost every single part of his house is customised. Chee Wai also possess one the most stunning walk-in wardrobe which we have ever seen in a residence – for a moment, we thought we were in an high-end retail outlet! At the end of the day, we left his house in awe. Not only by the interior design of his unit, more significantly, Chee Wai has shown us why he is the 1st Asian to become a Vice President, simply with his wealth of knowledge & charisma.
No trip is complete without some R&R! The famous landmarks such as Chatuchak, Terminal 21, Platinum Mall were part of the itinerary. Riding on a bike was a 1st time experience for many of us. We took GrabBike once and we got hooked immediately! It is a must-do item when you are there!
To end off the trip, each of us was awarded with a certification, personally signed off by Chee Wai himself! As reluctant as we are to return to Singapore, it was certainly a fruitful trip with plenty of take-aways. Till then – thank you Bangkok!
The venue for R&R was decided to be at Westin at Langkawi. The resort just undergone renovation and it looked really spectacular! This was one of our biggest R&R with the involvement of 10 countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Korea, Japan, Australia and UK. We had a one and a half day workshop hosted by the Vice Presidents and Senior Campaign Owners of the different countries followed by dinner and drinks for the first 2 days.
The key event was day 3 where we had our Gala dinner in Black Tie Theme. Over 100 awards were given out ranging from Senior Team Leader awards to Campaign Owners of the different countries. We spent the last day with a half-day island hopping on jet ski exploring the island and beaches. Seeing the different success and achievements, every one was inspired and looking forward for a bigger and better year!
The Turi Beach Rising Star is a combined event across Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand. Delegates from the 3 countries flew in to the island and had a 4 days workshop and RnR. We also had the honor of inviting the Country Manager of HongKong and Vice President from Thailand as special guests to share their tips with the team.
We had 2 days of workshop and gathered a lot of information from the sharing sessions of the different Campaign Owners. Of course the benefit of running the workshop on an island is that you to enjoy the sun, sea and sand too! We allocated time for a dinner BBQ along the beach, water sports and paint ball! It was a good balance of learning, networking and fun experience.
