Thailand trip Jan 2008 part 2

Continuing from where I stopped last night. After the very filling and tasty lunch at Fuji restaurant, we shopped around Central, a very expensive (even for Singaporeans k) shopping centre near my relative’s house. whoa time really flies. by the time we were done with shopping it’s already dinner time lol. after dinner we went to Rama IX park for a walk. well I didnt really take a walk cos i was busy taking pics instead XD THE PARK IS TOO BEAUTIFUL TO NOT TAKE PICTURES

A beautiful scene right after i got off the car. It’s just too tempting man.

The park has a radio lol. It’s so damn noisy cos it disturbs the peace and serenity of the park.

____________________________________________________________

On the third day of the trip, we traveled out of Bangkok to a very secluded place in northeast Thailand called Kalasin. One of our (very) distant relative, who’s my mom’s uncle, had passed away the week before, and we were invited to the funeral at the eleventh hour. It’s just one of Thailand’s many rundown suburbs and there’s practically nothing there. The funeral site itself too, wasnt that all glamorous. But good thing they were generous with their food (again XD) and filled us up with tons of servings. And they were great stuff man, like restaurant fare XP

the food. sorry about the blurry effect T~T the people in the background are my grandpa and mom. I’m sure you guys know who’s who, right? >D

after which we went back to the funeral site again for more mourning. Damn it was hot and the sun seemed like it was out to burn all of us.

the area where we prayed

after which we went to Sirindhorn Museum. It’s basically a museum about the beginning of life and… dinosaurs lol. A pretty normal museum with a normal context that could be found in textbooks if not for its flashy effects. Anyway thats what a museum’s all about right?

LOL dad’s good at photography

like as if one dinosaur museum wasnt enough, we went to another excavation site where thai archaeologists found REAL dinosaur fossils in 1994 (if my memory serves well). this is a bit more boring though. LOL

the whole exhibition was just this thing and a really cheap theatre about dinosaurs. LOl

after that was a 5 hour ride home to Bangkok. FINALLY GOING HOME LOL

About Kimono Party Girl

I was born and bred in Singapore for the first 20 years of my life, and then I decided that even after flying all over the world as a flight attendant, life is still too boring. So, in search of more adventure and add spice to my life, I quit my job, packed up, and left for Japan - which is, to me, the promised land. I've always been fascinated with Japan ever since I was 8, thanks to Ayumi Hamasaki, aka the Britney Spears of Japan. She's the first J-pop singer that I have been obsessed with, and my first contact with the Japanese language was through her lyrics. Yup, I first learned my Hiragana from her song 'I am'. But what really sealed the deal was my first trip to Japan in 2010. The fresh air, the beautiful cherry blossoms, the endless fast fashion trends and the awesome food was what made Japan the land of my dreams, and it had since become my goal to one day live, work and party in Japan. So after working like a horse as a flight attendant for 2 years and saving up a decent amount, I made a big leap of faith and moved to the land of the rising sun. I have studied one year of Japanese and two years of graphic design. Currently, I'm in the midst of shukatsu (就活 - job hunting). Wish me luck!
