“Three days of fun, and it’s over… Even though the duration may be short, however the time spent together is invaluable. Seldom would I get a chance to go out with Yanjun’s family on a trip together, while relaxing and putting the stress of work at the back of my mind. (: “
Few days after I’m back from Bangkok was my company trip on star cruise. Superstar Virgo this time round as the previous Star Gemini was a bit cock-up (just arrived from Sembawang shipyard) and they allowed us to board this cruise at a cheaper price. ($80 for sea port tax if I remember correctly). It’s a good price as Virgo is a bigger cruise and we will be stopping over at Redang. 3D2N this time round (the previous trip was just 1 night).
Boarded and went into our room to put our bags. I shared the room with my 2 other colleagues and as I’m the youngest among them and lightest, I took the upper deck bed which needs a “ladder” to climb up and down as shown.
The ladder was initially kept in the drawer and colleague from another room didn’t know about it. She told us she climbed up with the help of the side table. Haha!
