Fahthai in business class

Stuck on an extended visa run in Penang Malaysia a couple of months ago, I thought ‘why not work whilst I am here?’ Geogetown is such a gorgeous town full of art and history and so I pitched it to Fahthai May-June edition.

When I checked in I was told, “Sorry madam, there has been a problem with your seat.” Anyway I was given a new seat and got lost on the plane looking in economy for 1A… oh but it was in business class!

During my lunch served on a white table cloth with wine and all in business class… I opened the magazine to pass time and there was my article…. ha what fun!

Yep jungle pants, ankle socks…. a (cold) hippy in business class reading her own article…
