certainly a dream comes true when the chinese press informed me that i won her 90th anniversary lucky draw prize! the travel period must be in dec! among the few dates offered, we chose dec 28 to jan 1, bangkok. confirmed in oct.
the national issue between the ruling & opposition parties worried us! the good news on dec 28 was the opposition party took 5 days leave for the nation to celebrate the new year! that's our travel period. lucky!
another lucky thing was coz of the political trouble, the thai baht hit a record low against many dollars. it surely benefits the tourists.
|still quite a crowd at the airport. it took us an hour to check out.|

the lucky draw winner
