So I'm back from spending 5 days at Abacus International Conference 2014 in Abu Dhabi! It wasn't exactly an exciting place to visit but it was really a great experience for me! So Abacus holds a conference for our top travel agencies once every 2 years! The markets in Asia Pacific will all send in their top agencies for some fun and product updates.
At the departure hall's Killiney before our flight!
So I woke up on the first day early, I went to the gym to do some yoga!!
Came back and had a hot bath tub shower before heading down to roam the hotel.
Some pictures at the Etihad Innovation Centre of the upcoming planes. Probably my only chance to get into First Class and Suites in this lifetime, the mock up that looked soooo real :P
Off to lunch at Yas Viceroy!
And a few group shots outside the hotel! (:
and shopping at Souk Market is a place where you can get all the traditional lamps, decorative, clothes and also spices, nuts and dates!
We made the owner super happy that he decided to join us in our group photo outside his shop hahaha!
Went back to shower and prepare for the Conference Dinner at Ritz Carlton Hotel Abu Dhabi where the theme was Arabian Night!
Group shot with the Singapore team before we left for Ritz!
Truly taken aback when we arrived at Ritz Carlton's lobby! It was so well decorated to our Arabian Night theme! The mar comms of AIPL always does such great job!!
With Francis and Desmond from Travel Media!
Benny from Philippines, Paul and Andy from AIPL
With Catharine from AIPL!
Hot belly dancers doing their thing on stage!
The Singapore team took advantage of the beautiful set up and went on stage to take some group photos!! The other markets followed suit after that, no one can resist! (:
Shot with the Etihad air stewardesses!! I'm so short :P
