Gone are the days when you can play with your expensive laptop. Sit quietly. No working online.

Thought of the day-“We have reason to be concerned about attempts by terrorist groups to circumvent aviation security and terrorist groups continue to target aviation interests,”-US Department of Homeland Security

Sit still. Enjoy the movies or listen to the music. Talk to your neighbors. Sleep or eat as much as you want. Look at that awesome view through your small window or simply look around, walk to the galleys to find someone who is willing to talk to you for hours. Forget your laptop, forget about taking pictures with your expensive digital camera. Business travelers, draft your business proposals in your brain. All these if you are flying from the Trump’s listed airports in Middle East and North Africa. Check-in your laptop, tablet and digital camera. Arrive at the airport early!

Time to raise your chopsticks in unison and stir up some blessings of prosperity, wealth and good health as we usher in the feisty spirit of the Fire Rooster. A Chinese New Year must-have ritual of tossing the ‘Yee Sang’ – the higher one tosses, the higher the growth in ‘fortune’. The Hotel Team did just that by tossing a unique Tutti Frutti ‘Yee Sang’ (that features premium imported and local fruits & vegetables) together with media fraternity in front of the hotel’s **golden Giant Rooster in the hotel lobby. [**Promenade Hotels & Resort will be running a Facebook Contest: ‘Huat A Big Rooster’ from 26th January – 12th February 2017 with Hotel Stay & Meals as Attractive Prizes to be Won!].
