Stand 301

Stand 301
Originally uploaded by bitslice.

I just went to the new Bangkok airport, Suvarnabhumi Airport. There were aircraft taxi trials going on during the past few months. Participants were pilots from Thai Airways (TG), Bangkok Airways (PG), and air force (RTAF), air traffic controllers (ATC), and airport staffs (AOT).

The purpose of the trial is to familiarize staffs concerned, mainly ATC and AOT, with the new procedure at this new airport, opening at the end of September. Fire department trucks (pick-ups) were used as aircrafts, and we just drove around as if we were taxiing aircrafts.

The trial went OK. However, I couldn't take many pictures because it's at night. Wish I had the day trial.

Another accident!?!

As I mentioned in earlier post, I just had another car accident last night! :( Well, it's only a few scratches but my car had to go to repair shop anyway.

Breitling Aerospace

There's this watch and jewelry fair at Siam Paragon from July 27th to August 14th which features more than 100 brands from the luxury and expensive to general watches.

I can't say I'm a big fan or a collector, but I really do love watches. Someone once told me that it's the only "jewelry" that a man can wear. It's true. A watch reflects its owner's taste and personality.

So last weekend I went to the fair. One of the top 5 items in my wishlist is this Breitling Aerospace Avantage.

It's light-weighted cause it's made of titanium. Features functions like chronograph, timer, 4 years day/date, 2nd timezone, alarm, minute repeater. Very nice. And it looked good on my wrist too. Fortunately I didn't have enough money, so maybe next time.
