Bangkok Trip 07

yes. i'm back to reality.

it was a rather fruitful trip. refreshing i would say.

so did i manage to finish up all that i had to on thurs? err.. not really. but managed to complete 1 of my online assignment. ;)

work i have with me always, but bangkok shopping trip i have not always. so i went with a happy heart and had a great time there with my one big happy family!

i went there with 3 main objectives:
- to shop
- to eat
- to get a thai massage!

and bangkok meet all my expectations. we traveled mainly via the skytrain . it took us to everywhere we wanted to go. we basically roamed around 3 places,Siam Square, Mahboonkrong (MBK) and Chaktuchak weekend market (jj). but 80% of ourmy shopping time was spent at Chaktuchak. it's THE place to shop when you go bangkok! you can get tons of stuffs there at low prices. by default, you should aim to slash the prices to half of what they quote. ;)

for the food, there was actually an ultra cheap steamboat buffet just opposite my hotel @ 89 bahts per person. that's like S$3.80 per person!! but we didn't got for that as buffet kinda takes up alot of time, and shopping was priority! xP but i did get to eat my dunkin donuts. yummy!

and on the 2nd night, we went out to get our thai massage. and my masseuse was this experienced "ah ma". she's power man! after the normal massage, she did some powerful twisting moves and finally ended off by inverting me at a 45 degrees angle with my head at the bottom and giving me a head massage. shiok man.

do check out the pics and videos..

bangkok rocks. my family might be gng back there again at the end of the year. round two! ;)

holi-day or horror-day?

finally, i managed to "force" myself to go on a "holiday".

i'll be gng to bangkok over the weekend with my family. 8 of us. yes 8 (not including bowie lim)! my family has kinda "expanded". that's cos the partners of my siblings and mine are tagging along. one big happy family. if my grandma weren't gng to cameron highland with her tai chi friends this weekend, that would make 10 of us, including my aunt. if you're wondering, yes i think my grandma's quite happening, to go on a holiday with her tai chi friends! i don't even have tai chi friends, not to mention holiday with them. and if you're wondering again, no i don't think they're gng there to do tai chi, at least not just tai chi alone... xP

so why the "force" and "holiday" you may ask. well, to start of with, i'm skipping school on fri, getting cj to help preach for me for cg and missing service. that alone is one big grey area which not many has ventured into. for record sake and before i get quoted wrongly, i've got all the necessary approval needed. just fyi. ;) so i decided to join my family on this trip even though i really can't afford the time for it. and if i do wait for a time when i'm free, i guess the only holiday i'm gng to is heaven. as a matter of fact, i'm constantly in a perpetual state of busyness. so that's why i need to "force" myself to spend some time with my family, to go on a "holiday".

and it's a "holiday" cos i have tons of stuffs to settle while i'm away. or rather, i've just created more stuffs for me to settle now that i'm gng on a "holiday". cos i'll have to finish a project due this fri, 2 weekly online assignments by sun night, do my tutorials for following monday and prepare a presentation for tue. that means i have to finish all that by thurs night before i leave!

happy horrorholiday..
