09 November 2008 Soekarno Hatta Int'l Airport Jakarta Indonesia

Arrived the airport 1:15pm Indonesia time. It was a 3.5 hrs flight from Phils to Changi Airport SG then another 45 mins from SG to ID. The arrival area at ID airport looks very homey. With red bricked surroundings and wood-carved design in colorful paintings in the pillars around the airport. Went to the wrong queue 4 times...how pathetic is that? Hahaha...Blame it on the bad signages and airport personnel who hardly speak english. Sigh.

@ the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Kuningan

Wow! By far the best hotel I have been in. I feel like a queen. It is so spacious and grandiose I wish I could live here with my family. Spent luxurious time in the bathtub, bathing in Bvlgari scented soap, shampoo, conditioner and bathing gel. I have my own office area, a 3 seater sofa with center table, a 42" LCD Samsung TV, a walk-in dresser connected to the bathing area. I would believe that only a queen deserves such luxury and here I am enjoying the benefits of staying in my own castle for 7 days. Isn't that just wonderful? I am truly blessed.

10 November 2008 *** Ofc 11/F Plaza Kuningan

Nice office. Met with the testees. So far I believe we are right on schedule. Tried to organize some things and had good team work with my partner Anja. It is always such an honor to be working with no less than the Asst. Regional Controller for APAC. Learned so much from her in Thailand and I tested Customer Team Shin then. This time its Country Finance and Controlling. My turf so to speak and I am confident that we will be able to finish on time.  ID is hotspot in the global office for always failing in the SOX testing. People are spoiled for being the biggest earner in Southeast Asia. Its a challenge to be working with a big volume business as this affects the processes and the testing as we have to communicate with more people and more data to deal with. Exciting to be exposed in such an experience. It would be a nice addition to my getting to be impressive resume. Hahaha...Dream on Selle.

One thing I don't like here aside from the traffic which we also have in PH is that the Rupiah currency have so many zeroes in them. Its difficult to pay since I am not used in seeing so many zeroes in one bill. I have to put imaginary commas to be able to know how much I have on hand. Hahaha...talk about strange things.

Pictures to follow....

Anyway, its nice to live like a queen...even for just 7 days....=)
