Past Events


Saint Nicolas: Sunday 29th of November

On the 29th of November around 60 children and their parents came to see the Holy man at the yearly Saint-Nicolas Party. While waiting for Saint-Nicolas to arrive the children could do some crafts and games while the parents enjoyed a variety of snacks and drinks.
After singing some traditional songs Saint-Nicolas and his helpers finally arrived. He brought his big red book with a record of all the children to see whether they behaved well the past year. But Saint-Nicolas had some very good news, nobody had been naughty this year so He and his helpers not only handed out gifts to all the children but also a bag full of candies and speculoos.
Only happy faces when everybody went home.



On Friday, 11 December  2015 the BCT organized its end of the year G2Gether  at  “THE NEST” rooftop lounge in Bangkok.

The venue kept all his promises being exactly what it pretended to be. Some twenty  BCT members and guests enjoyed each other’s company under the stars while listening to the relaxing sounds of music.

We had to say goodbye to Petra, Corinne and our President Marielle because they are leaving the BCT as members of the committee. We would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did, wish you all the best and hope to see you again on one of our future BCT events.

It was a pleasure to welcome Ilse and Cécile as new BCT committee members. We are looking forward to working together with you discovering new horizons.

Lingering under the palm trees we all had a good chat, fine drinks and excellent food
