Christchurch business trip

So I was in Christchurch for 3 days 2 nights, for business purposes. Am not getting into anything about works here, but to share what I managed to do after working hours.

View from the top...approaching Canterbury


I stayed in room 802, Holiday Inn City Centre. Not bad. The room was very tidy and clean but I think it is just too big for single person. Two double beds! For what? I know, one for me, and the other for all my clothes and junkies! Muahahaha

My hotel room



Tue night, met up with Hui and Donny for dinner at 老地方 (Lao Di Fan), my favourite hang out spot, also many asians' favourite I believe.

Look at their jumbo size pearl milk tea! It is HUGE!


With Hui, the little kid! Hehehehe


Comes Wed night, dinner again with Hui & Donny. This time it was Korean at TJ Korean restaurant! I love Korean food and there is not many here in Wellington.

Now you see!


Now you don't!

Then, we carried on chit-chating at Coffee Culture.....

We had a great time! We talked so much and laughed like no tomorrow. Hui even had insomnia due to laughter overdosed. How cute is that? Hahahaha

Hello my Queen! You're most welcome. You and your family are good people, and good people deserve the best so don't you worry. Everything is going to be fine. I'm relieve that Jaymes is getting better. I like this kid y'know! Hehehe

The jumbo size was shared among my two friends, mine was the small one next to it. Hehehe Lucky I didn't ordered the jumbo, else would have ended up sleeping on the toilet bowl. Hahaha

Hi Doreen, I just realised that I should address you as "Princess Doreen".

I suppose somehow your company realised that you need space and deserve some privileged treatment, hence the large room.

I am glad that you have managed to hang out in the evening even on a business trip. :)

Hi Doreen, you sure one fantastic lady...other women enjoying food like you might need a new wardrobe, ha ha.
But I guess there are women like you, my wife too....eat like nobody's business and never put on weight.
My wife can still get into the sarong she wore on our first date, and the cheong sum when I proposed to her 35 years ago.
Nice pics Doreen....oh ya, I'm not much of latest songs, don't know any too, but enjoy yours here.
Good selection, Doreen...Lee.

the room so nice, can bounce up and down with pigi. :)

Doreen said...

l b:
Yeah, I think she got too high, adrenaline over-flowed! Hehehe Yep, I definitely like the windows part!

oceanskies79:
Eh? No lah, no lah, just call me Doreen. Princess is just how ECL likes to nick me sometimes. Hehehe

u.lee:
Wow! Your wife sure a pretty and sexy lady! She must have kept herself very well to be able to still wear the sarong. Hopefully I can maintain that well too in the future.

mistipurple:
Definitely! Bounce up and down, and then bounce from this bed to that bed! Bounce non-stop, good exercise too! Hahaha

Come to think of it, you do like a beautiful and kind princess. :)

oceanskies79:
That's very flattering, thank you! *Doreen very happy now* Heheeh

kay:
Yeah, me too! I will be very dejected with small serving. The more food I see on the plate, I happier I would be! Haha

winn:
Sounds like you don't fancy Korean food? Or there is no nice one around your area?

Emm....honestly I don't do anything particular to stay slim and I'm not slim lah. I'm actually quite round and meaty (how come it sounds like a meat ball)I think the only thing I do is hide fats. Hahaha

Doreen said...

trinity:
Ya ya, come come let's fly together, stay in that hotel together, laugh together and eat together. I think if we both go on business trip together, there will not be anything done but we sure will have hell of a good time! Hahaha

keeyit said...

The hotel quite nice le... what is the view from the hotel? nice?

Hui is quite small size ar.. She has pretty eyes..

oceanskies79 said...

Errr...I don't flatter, just tell the truth.

Doreen said...

keeyit:
It has limited view of the city. Couldn't see much really with all the buildings blocking it. That's why I didn't bother to take a pic of it. Hehehe

Yeah, Hui got big eyes!!

oceanskies79:
Awww....that's just so sweet. Now you really made my day! Hehehe

eastcoastlife said...

Thanks for your prayers for my son’s speedy recovery. He was discharged from hospital this afternoon. :)

eastcostlife:
You're most welcome ECL! Glad everything is back to normal.
