Quintessential Time Machine


Supermodel and former Miss Thailand World Cynthia Carmen Bishop, affectionately known as Cindy, was master of ceremonies as Quintessentially introduced a world transcending traditional Thai culture and contemporary elegant English values at Bangkok's Pacific City Club.

The "Time Machine" event was organised by Quintessentially, a leading luxury lifestyle group with members around the world.  The organisation has offices in 63 global destinations, and prides itself on fulfilling tasks that have proved beyond the remit of even the most competent personal assistant.


Exquisite service is provided 365 days a year, providing members with solutions to their utmost wishes, be it in the field of art, travel, restaurants or music.
