I am honored to be featured by my previous school, PSB Academy, in their “Our Alumni – Their Stories” category. Please check out the article here.
Hello again from a hotel room!
I was recently promoted to Guest Administration Officer and am in the midst of transferring to another ship, Voyager of the Seas. I flew from Grand Cayman to New York, and then from New York to Hong Kong, where the ship is based before relocating to Australia in October.
The itinerary for Voyager looks good and I’m excited. For this upcoming voyage, we’ll do an overnight in Naha (Japan) and then next month, we’ll have another overnight in Bangkok (Thailand). Of course the port I’m most excited about is Singapore, which we will be visiting on 22nd October 2015. Any friends or family who wants to come on-board, please let me know so that I can make the necessary arrangements.
The time has come, yet again, to begin another 5 months contract with Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas. I don’t know why I always feel inspired to blog at the start of a contract. Today I’m boarding the ship in Miami, US, tomorrow I’ll be at sea.
I’m excited to go back to the ship and meetup with old friends. There were a few familiar faces who are signing on as well, and it was fun catching up last night over dinner.
It was a good 7 weeks vacation as I caught up with my family and friends. I also traveled to Bangkok, Bali and Malacca and spent all my money there. Unfortunately, I did gained weight during my vacation as there was too much good food everywhere.
Know how people usually make new year’s resolutions? Today I am making a new contract’s resolution and that is, you’ve guess it, to exercise more and lose weight. Wish me luck!
Okay same thing as before, should anyone wish to contact me, kindly drop me a message via FB or leave a comment below, and I will reply as soon as I can.
Till then, take care!
The time has arrived to begin my 5 months contract with Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas. Words cannot express how excited yet nervous I am. I mean, can you believe it? Today I’m boarding the ship in Southampton, England, tomorrow I’ll be in Le Havre, France.
On one hand, I am super excited to finally live my dream of working on a cruise. But on the other hand, I know it’s going to be hard work (no rest days) and I hope to have the willpower to last all the way through.
I will update again once everything has settled down. But as I have limited internet access on board (no free wifi), I really don’t know when’s the next time I can come online again. Should anyone wish to contact me, kindly drop me a message via FB or leave a comment below, and I will reply as soon as I can.
Till then, take care!
My girlfriends and I went to Phuket over the weekend for a well deserved break. Val found this deal on Expedia where it only cost $250 per person for flight and accommodation (2 persons to a room) for a 3D2N trip.
Or anywhere you prefer.
Haven’t you notice, Scoot hardly has promotion for flights to Seoul. Their ‘Morning Glory Tuesdays’ promos are almost always for Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong or Taipei flights. What about Seoul? :(
