I’m finally back from Bangkok and landed on my Home sweet home safe and sound! And not to forget, the enormous amount of money I had spent recklessly and yet still feel so unhaunt by it. I went there with Philbert, Xiaoye, Adeline, Pat, Binglin, Wenqi and Anqi.
This is gona be a very huge entry due to the amount of pictures we had taken in Bangkok and so, I’ve decided to narrow down the thoughts by summarising everything.
Day 1: Shopping in MBK & have a full body massage at the opposite of our hotel. The first time taking the train in Bangkok and the ride was comfortable! You have to buy a black token-like object before you can enter the train platform!
Day 2: Shopping in Bombay-tower & took a few rides on a "tutu". A wonderful experience! That tutu driver was very friendly and communicative. He asked us which country we are from! To avoid all unneccessary trouble, we lied to him saying we’re from Japan and he taught us some basic thailand language. Then he suddenly want us to teach him Japanese language but luckily most of us here took japanese as CDS during school and we managed to get away with it! LOL!
Day 3: Philbert got drunk last night after finishing 250ml of Chivas byhimself; totally crazy! He’s got a very heavy hangover and so wedecided to sit in an air-conditioned restaurant at the opposite ofcha-tu-chap before we shopped. The food there was amazingly cheap and taste extremely good! Then shopping & shopping all the way at Cha-tu-chup and pa-pong.
This time round, we even went to the roadside stall at the opposite of our hotel for supper and the first impression was damn bad. Imagine you can see lots of flies around the foodstall and mosquitoes biting on you. The food did smell nice and taste good and we didn’t have any sickness after that =).
The traffic there was disastrous; I really wonder how those drivers can drive in such a manner! The cars can just cut into each other lane or run across the red-traffic-light and it seems so law-less! The zebra crossing was even worse! Its not meant to be used by human because the traffic will never stop to let a person walk!
Every night, they would come and party in my room, playing poker cards and making my room in a mess by leaving their cup noodles unattended until I remove it and Philbert refuses to allow our room to be cleaned up by the cleaners everyday. Our room was like a garage filled with unneccessary tools and junks. Late nights were inevitable and there is a loss of sleep and I am feeling very tired right now but I am still packing my closet.
There was a last minute shopping this morning before we left for the plane in MBK and I was escorting Philbert towards the Taxi Stand and I witnessed a very huge crowd with flags walking on the road causing heavy traffic jam and I was totally astonished by it. Somehow there is this thought running in my head that if the natives were to know that we are Singaporeans, they might held us as hostages for negotiation among the politics.
Anyway, I will miss Thailand because of that helpful and understanding bell-boy in our hotel who always serve with a smiling face. He’s been receiving tips from us everyday and I think that’s where his motivation came. If 20baht can make a person happy, why not?
