Mr Weerasak Kowsurat, Minister of Tourism and Sports
When I started to run my website (www.SingaporeSights.com) about two years ago, I hoped that one day I could see myself on stage receiving an Award and it was a wonderful moment for me last week at the Thailand Tourism Awards 2008 ceremony to receive the first Award from Tourism Authority of Thailand ( TAT) for Friends of Thailand 2008.
The Friends of Thailand Awards were first introduced in 1996, and were presented by then – Prime Minister, General Chaovalit Yongchaiyuth. The Awards were presented to international individuals/organizations, international tour operators and international airlines for their dedication and commitment to the Thai tourism industry.Since then, TAT has presented the Friends of Thailand Awards every two years.
May I take this opportunity once again to thank Khun Porntip Makornpan, Director for TAT Singapore Office and Khun Thapanee Kiatphaibool, Assistant Director for Marketing Information Technology Group for their kind support for making my dream comes true.
“Dare To Dream, To achieve the Impossible”
Khun Porntip Makornpan, Director for TAT Singapore Office and me
