One of the models got my special attention. It was white and had a lot of nice red details. It was dedicated to Singha Soda Water. I had not really looked deep into the business of the Boon Rawd Brewery, but indeed, they do not only make beer, they also have drinking water, mineral water, soda water, lifestyle health drinks and sports drinks. And if you think it’s only about drinks, the Singha group also produces rice, seaweed snacks and rice crackers. Also the box was very nice, a plexiglass cube with a beautiful printed inlay. Not this was the only good looking one, also the other watches in the box were pretty well designed. Todd showed me the G-Shock Collectors set, that would be launched at the party. It was plain awesome. So many details, such a great backplate and I even had not seen the boxes yet. He showed me the back. All watches are numbered xxx/100. Todd’s personal set is numbered 012/100. One thing I didn’t know yet was that 12 was Todd’s lucky number. If you look around more into his business, you’ll find that this number pop’s up everywhere. For instance his cars have all license plates containing the number 12, or a cipher combination, which makes 12. Pretty cool. Then Todd gave me a special present. He had already promised me. It is a special customized DW-6900 CB with in gold a print of Singha Beer on it. Needless to say, I was speechless. Now I knew what I wold be wearing the next day at the interviews and party. It was number 11 of, of course, 12. Before I left to the hotel, I had to sign on of his big watch cases. At the bus, Yupadee and I had a little fun with the cars and number. One of the coolest cars of Todd is an original Volkswagen T1 in pristine state. License number 606, the number of one of my favorite drum machines.
Well, it had been a very long two days, with only less than 2 hours sleep. So, I was very happy I got back in the hotel to catch some sleep. Still, first I wanted to do some nightscape photography at my hotel room, as it overviewed a beautiful part of Bangkok. That appeared not to be quite easy, as a gigantic floodlight was lighting the whole hotel. After some small tricks I think I made some near
Note: Most photo's are by me, but some are taken by jarujin, Thiti and Yupadee. One photo was even taken by the guide of the Temple and Royal Palace.
