Wine Course


I have been away from the blogosphere for a month. Just so my readers know, I relocated to the island in the south of Thailand. Remember the post about my business trip to Koh Samui? It was actually an interview and I got the job. I went back to Bangkok to spend a week with my mom who was visiting before I flew back into the island.

I work at a restaurant of a 4-star resort for 9 hours a day, even more when there is high occupancy. I only get a day off which is Saturday. So on my day of rest, I lazily spend it listening to gospel songs, reading my Bible and sleeping. Even I had plenty of time, it is not possible to update my blog as my aging laptop is running really slow. Some programs do not work as good. I use another computer to modify photos. Posting takes ages to complete so I am really disappointed. I am doing it one at a time so I can at least keep my dear readers posted.

In the past month, a lot has happened. Only a few days since I started  with my new job, I learned about wine. Funny that I had to learn wine pairing so I could recommend it to our guests when I do not even drink.

The wine course was so informative. I had never thought wines have variety.  After discussion, I was surprised when the wine pro representative announced she's giving a test.  I answered the questions by guessing and a little help from my bar manager friend. :) I passed.  I got a certificate after I learned the  results of my test! Woohoo!  I'll see if I can ever master it.


The wine training course was conducted by a Thai lady named Khun Sumontha from Wine Pro, our  supplier.



Data is summarized in this table.

At the end of the course, a bottle of wine was opened for us to taste. One sip was all I had and I did not like it. As I said, I do not drink.




The staff was cheering when the cork popped!
