Thank you DBS Indulge. You are really bringing me to Bangkok! All my life I never really won a travel before through a contest, and this is my first.
DBS Indulge organised a contest in Aug and all we needed to do is to snap a picture of our favourite food from any DBS Indulge participating restaurant, post it on facebook, and get as many Likes as possible to WIN a free trip to Bangkok.
The Top 3 entries are *drum roll*
1st place – Bahari Bin Haron with 515 likes!
2nd place -Tan Tian Ling
3rd place – Daniel Ang
Bahari Bin Haron’s winning photo. “I am very privileged to be given this free trip to Bangkok by DBS Indulge! All I needed to do was dine with DBS! It is so easy!”
Tan Tian Ling’s photo. “Although I love dining and food photography, it was never in my wildest dreams to be selected as a winner. Thank you DBS Indulge for the generosity and the free trip to BKK!”
My photo. Thank you DBS Indulge for really bringing me to Bangkok! Looking forward to great food, exciting shopping and relaxing massages.
It was really a pleasant surprise. While I wasn’t campaigning for the Likes too aggressively, thank you for my friends for showing support to my food photos.
We love Bangkok for its variety of reasons from food, shopping, massages to all the entertainment offerings. It turns out that the 3 winners have also won a land package trip to Pattaya, where I never visited before.
I am quite excited as I am also considering booking the land package for my family. The price is quite reasonable, and the itinerary sounds interesting.

5 Things To Look Forward In The Pattaya Trip
No 1 – Markets
A visit to Pulldown Market, which I heard is one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand, centred around the Maeklong Railway’s track.
No 2 – Sea Sports
Water skis, snorkelling, parasailing and sunbathing in the beautiful Coral Island. Time to get a tan.
No 3 – Arts
The ArtsiIn Paradise is a museum where all the artwork has a 3D illusion even though they are painted on a flat wall. I have visited a similar museum in Korean and had loads of fun taking pictures.
No 4 – Shopping
While I generally don’t wear gems, I thought of getting a stone for my mum’s birthday at Gems Gallery Pattaya, which is known to be the world’s biggest jewellery and gems centre.
No 5 – Sights
Other than Sriracha Tiger Zoo & Honey Bee Farm, the tour would also pay a visit to Pattaya’s most noticeable landmark, the 130 metres high Khao Cheejan also known as the “Buddha Mountain”.
Thank you DBS Indulge and CTC Travel. Look out for my food entries when I make it there!
