In Memory of a deeply loved Monarch

October was a month of great sadness for all Thais as, after a year of mourning, it was the month when the Funeral Rites of the Late King, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, were performed. The ceremonies were held over four days and all of Bangkok and Thailand came to a halt on 26 October when the Cremation of the Late King took place. The Team at Arnoma Grand made a small contribution towards events by participating in a great “Clean Up’ campaign for the local area the day before the Royal Cremation, organised by our good neighbours at Big C, and by sending along our Culinary Team to participate in cooking free meals for some of the many thousands of mourners who attended the event. The Late King leaves a legacy that remains in the hearts of all Thais and the Funeral Rites were an opportunity for the people to pay a last, emotional farewell to their deeply beloved Monarch.
The whole month was overshadowed by the moving events related to the Late King, but October was also our Birthday Month. Everyone has a Birthday and Arnoma Grand is no different. 06 October was our 27th Birthday and of course we held a ceremony to mark the occasion, albeit in a rather more subdued fashion than in previous years. To ensure a fortuitous year ahead we held a ceremony attended by 9 Monks and presided over by our Owner’s Representative and Executive Director, Khun Chanathip Trivuth.
In October we also had a number of other remarkable occasions, but all was of very small note given the deeply sad events relating to the Royal Funeral Rites, that like the deeply beloved Late King, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, will remain in the hearts and minds of all Thais, as well as all Foreigners working in Thailand, forever.

Arnoma Grand celebrates its 27th Birthday!

Opened in 1990, Arnoma Grand celebrated its 27th Birthday on 05 October, and to ensure a year of good fortune ahead, a ritual was performed at the Hotel Spirit House, followed by a ceremony and Merit Making performed by the auspicious number of Monks – 9.
The events were presided over by the Owner’s Representative and Executive Director, Khun Chanathip Trivuth, and were joined by many members of the Arnoma Grand Team.

Director of Operation’s Message.

September has been even busier than usual and there’s no doubt that Tourism to Bangkok is currently extremely strong across so many Markets.
Driven by the booming economies of South, South East and above all East Asia, and still supported strongly by the Traditional Markets in Europe, Australia and the Americas, it seems at times, like we need to build some more rooms!
But no matter how busy we become or how many prestigious Events we have at the Arnoma Grand we still have to bear in mind that we are first and foremost a people business and we have to take care of the Team Members here. It’s for that reason that we arranged for a Holistic Health Care programme for our Team, where they learned how to stay in top physical condition and how to take care of their families’ health too.
We had a number of prestigious Events at Arnoma Grand as usual, and some Prize Winners from Shanghai staying with us.
We share below a few tips on one of Thailand’s favourite Budget priced dishes – Pad Thai. Available in Mango 99 at Arnoma Grand and one you will often find me sampling!

Arnoma Grand chosen as the venue for Multiple Prestigious Events in September

Arnoma Grand has two floors of Meeting Rooms, including the prestigious Arnoma Grand Ballroom, which has a high ceiling, is pillar less and can seat up to 800 in Theatre Style. Combined with our very central, easy access location, Arnoma Grand is a very popular Venue for meetings and functions of all types. In September we were fortunate to be chosen as the venue for numerous prestigious events, including functions organized by MK restaurants and the office of the Law Reform Commission of Thailand (OLRCT).
We were also honoured to welcome Khun Virat Shinvinitkul, Privy Councilor to King Rama X in the Certification ceremony for the third generation of the “Advance Corporate, Banking and Financial Service Law Programme”.

The Holistic Health Care Programme.

The demands of today’s commercial life are taxing on the mind and body. Increasing numbers of people are waking up to the fact that to enjoy work – and play – it is essential to ensure that the body is well maintained and prepared for work. Similarly, Employers are also aware that “A Healthy Workforce is a Productive Work Force”.
Particularly during the rainy season, Employers experience a high number of Employee absences owing to respiratory diseases, including colds, bronchitis and influenza. Such diseases can be prevented if we eliminate the risks beforehand.
To assist our Team Members in fighting seasonal bugs we recently arranged a lecture by the Team from The Ocean Life Insurance Company, titled “The Holistic Health Care Programme”

The Ocean Life Insurance company operates Holistic Health Care, with the aim of teaching people how to maintain their health in excellent condition and to protect themselves from the adverse effects of the current inclement weather. After the training, participants can protect themselves from respiratory diseases especially Influenza. Moreover, they also learn how to take care of their family members as well.

Prize winner from Yummy Planet.

Arnoma Grand Bangkok is well known in the important Chinese Market – not least for its fabulous location, right in the centre of Bangkok’s best selection of Shopping. We were recently invited to participate in a Yummy Planet Promotion organised by the Agriculture Section, Royal Thai Consulate-General Shanghai, and were happy to cooperate, donating some free room nights for the lucky winners. The photograph shows our Duty Manager, Khun Charin, welcoming the Prize Winner, Mrs. Zheng Li Hui, to Arnoma Grand.

Famous Thai dish “Pad Thai”.

Thailand’s food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. In many cases, quick to prepare, healthy, inexpensive and tasty, there are few dishes in the world that can compare.
Pad Thai is one of the top 5 most popular street food dishes in the world. A stir-fry dish comprising of rice noodles, tofu, bean sprouts and egg, Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s best-known and most popular dishes. As with so much Thai food, this dish uses the combination of sweet, sour and salty to great effect. The contrast of textures is also important.
Soft rice noodles are flavored with a balance of sugar, tamarind and lime juice or vinegar and fish sauce. Additional ingredients depend upon what is available to the cook: pork, chicken, and/or egg, firm tofu, shrimp, crunchy bean sprouts, roasted peanuts and salty pickled radish are all popular additions. Each diner is free to adjust the dish to his taste at the table with the addition of dried ground red chilies, white vinegar, sugar and fish sauce. Fresh lime wedges usually garnish the plate.
Pad Thai is a popular menu item in Mango 99, our specialist Thai restaurant, and is available for just THB 200 plus plus!
