Business Overseas at Shen Zhen

Hi All, I am back from Shen Zhen. It was the first time i traveled overseas with my colleagues for work. I was there for a week and it was really tiring. We were undergoing training for Oracle where our company will be implementing this system starting next year. Each of us represent our own department and after training.we are supposed to train our own people. It was kinda stressing as we have to know how to use the system first hand.

It was really a whole effort to make to this happen. We understand the importance of it how corporate would want to implement this (by hook by crook) next year. And so, on 13 Sept, we flew..

Nasi Lemak for breakfast on Silkair.

It was the same weather we are experiencing in Singapore. Hot and humid. After landed,  the driver hired by MKS Shen Zhen to pick us up from the arrival hall and drove us to the hotel. We stayed at JW Marriott Shen Zhen. It was a very nice, 5 star hotel.

High Ceiling at the lobby.

Room was big and spacious. We had one room to ourselves.

Dressing table

Ultimate bath tub but i used once only

We put our barang barang in our room and left to meet the rest at the lobby. As we were new to this place, we went to the concierge to ask if there is anywhere nearby where we go (perhaps explore). After the staffs' recommendation, we went to some shopping mall ( i forgot the name) and we saw Carrefour nearby. 


As a typical Singapore, we are super happy when we saw anything familiar overseas 
(especially supermarket). The shopping mall we went was like those very itas one where we saw those big names in Singapore at MBS. Moreover, they are selling more expensive than the prices in Singapore and we felt it was not worth shopping further. Instead, all of us agreed to go to Carrrefour to do some grocery. We were like stocking up 1 week worth of food as if we would go hungry in the middle of the night. For your info, the hotel was situated nowhere convenient to shopping or any shops. 

Surprisingly, Shen Zhen was campaigning to go plastic bag free. As we didn't bring our own shopping bag, most of us bought plastic bag for 20 cents RMB. I bought water and cup noodle and potatoes chips. 

For the next few days, we were having training and we dinner in hotel almost the whole time. I woke 6.30am everyday in the morning, had their buffet breakfast , sat on the bus at 8am to MKS SZ and training the whole day. Lunch at 12pm and training would start 1 hour later. 5.30pm and bus was here to fetch all of us back to hotel. After back at hotel, I would wash up, had dinner and go back clear my 1 days worth of backlog email and practice a bit of what was taught at training before i go to bed. 

Took a ootd of myself everyday before i leave hotel.

Beside work, it is work. I miss my hubby and family and cant wait to go home after 4 days. Besides one Sunday where we went Hong Kong, my blog pretty much sums up what went on everyday.
Alright, time to sign off here for now *Yawns*
