This has been planned since several months ago, and talked about in the last couple of years. Going to Israel has always been on my mom’s bucket list – and I wanted to take her there while she’s still relatively young and healthy to enjoy it.
So here we are — we signed up for a 10 day tour to Jordan and Israel!
The 15-people tour began at Jordan, and one of the main highlights for me was visiting the Al-Khazneh (Treasury) — it was featured in the last scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989 film) It was a surreal feeling being there in person!
The other surprising thing about being in Jordan is how fast WIFI is, even though we were in the middle of nowhere!
Like my Iran trip 10 years ago, the landscape is mostly brown and climate is dry.
The Jordan part of the tour was warming up for the real highlight: Israel…
November 20 – 27. It’s been an amazing 8 days with David Cavanagh, team and students from around the world – all here in Pattaya, Thailand!
I’ve known David for exactly 10 years, and when I heard he was going to do a week-long workshop I decided to come on over to support.
Now the training was designed for newbies and frankly I didn’t expect to learn much from it (more like be there to see how he conducts the training and… I had to see for myself how he would last 8 days straight as the main speaker and trainer)
So imagine my surprise as I scribbled the ‘newbie’s workbook’ with notes and product ideas I think can fill up for the first Quarter of 2018! Learned his sales techniques – which I find is owed greatly to his transparency and being straight-up, no B.S. from the start. You don’t see that often these days from marketing teachers, almost a lost art.
Just as well, he’s supported by a small but great team of people – Roger Bourdon, Eric Zeitoun, Nisarat Cavanagh and a few but quality guest speakers he brought on board.
The participants are from around the world – Australia, UK, US, India, Hong Kong, Germany, just to name some.
Right after the Graduation night, I recorded my review and experience of the Thailand Internet Business Workshop.
Another video compilation of the week-long event:
Not a dull moment, I attended ALL the sessions and I believe so did most if not all the participants, that shows how captivating each of David’s sessions is.
Also thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a guest speaker on the last day – that came as a surprise to me considering I came here to participate like everyone else and sit in the workshop!
Overall I had an amazing time and wealth of learning opportunities. Also celebrated by 31st birthday while in workshop, haha
All in all, it’s been a great, mind-blowing experience and I’d like to be back again next round… and I’ll be bringing people over!
It’s been a couple of years since I visited I-City. And wow, a lot of changes since… all good ones!
For starters, there’s a new Red Carpet Wax Museum – new to me at least; it wasn’t here before. The Wax Museum prides itself as being the only animated wax figure museum in the world (although it appears to be limited to just the few figures at the entrance)
But I have to say the amount of things to see here is generous, and even better than the Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong!
Checked out the Trick Arts Museum too. Been here on every time I came here. I’d say only about 20% changes since then – nothing much though.
Next stop: Snow Land. Quite some changes since. The maze had been bulldozed and what I think will be an Egyptian theme part of the place is under construction. The place is overall brighter and well lid this time.
Went around I-City to check out other places and mostly watch the rides rather than get on one. The whole place operates by a card points system, that you have to purchase from any of the Ticket Counters here. The card is then used for entrance to rides, museums, exhibitions, and more.
It’s somewhat surprising that even though I-City has more to offer since its introduction a few years ago, the queues for rides weren’t that long for a weekend. (Of course, a good thing for me… nearly no wait time!)
This is definitely the place to take your girl to for a date or outing!
