Got back from Bangkok late last night and all I could do was to download a tonne of pictures off the memory cards. Here is a preview of things that I have done during the rather interesting trip to Thailand from the few snapshots that I hastily processed late last night.

Bangkok Trip 2008 - tuk-tuk
the ubiquitous tuk-tuk

We had our fair share of tuk-tuk experience across town. These little 3 wheelers are everywhere around the city. With total disregard of traffic pattern and sense of speed limitation, it was a ball of fun and excitement. One driver even did a wheely when we were on board! (perhaps due to the weight of Terence & Dree?)

Bangkok Trip 2008 - temples and shrines
the holy temples

We also visited a lot of temples around the city center as well as the outskirts. The particular picture above was captured when I purposely cleared my throat louder than usual, hee-hee.

Bangkok Trip 2008 - diving kids on choo phraya river
the diver on Chao Phraya

At the various piers along Chao Phraya River, you can see kids whose job title are “divers”. Their job is to re-catch creatures (cat fish, frogs, turtles, etc) that were let go into the river by pilgrims to be re-sell at the various stalls along the pier. The kids did not let work gets in the way of having fun.

Bangkok Trip 2008
thai boxing!

Of course, I did a bit of practice on my Muay Thai on a proper rink at Pantip Mall (the King’s Cup competition was on)!

Bangkok Trip 2008
the red light district

What’s a trip to Bangkok without going to the red light district. I have a very good story on some 3 stupid fellas getting conned by a bar owner and a pimp. Stay tuned!

Bangkok Trip 2008
McWorms with a side of insects and the optional fried froggy

Last but not least, how can we forget about food? Weird and wonderful creatures that went into our mouth. I’ve had tomyam, pad Thai, pad see yew, pork dishes, and of course, the fried insects!

Full posts on the trip will be coming to your nearest computer monitor shortly.

    I’m not sure about guest houses, but I think lonely planet would be a good guide for that 😉
