This trip was booked many many moons ago; however due to political turmoil in Bangkok : the trip was postponed by Prof Dr Hajah and her friends to today. Even this trip was almost cancelled or postponed again : and so I decided to become their 'bodyguard'; and followed them for this previously postponed Bangkok Shopping Trip. MH784's battery must have conked out; as according to the "Captain" : the engined could not be 'started'; and they have to bring in the 'jump start crew' to start the aircraft engine. It got started (jump start I believed) and we departed from KLIA almost 1 hour later than scheduled. We arrived safely into Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport also 1 hour later. Took the cab and made it to our hotel : "Bangkok Park Plaza" at Sukhumvit Soi 18 : and will be our base for Bangkok for the next 2 nites !!!
