My vacation – Bangkok

It has been a while since last time I wrote something. Time flies, however today I am happier than ever before. At last, me and my wife went to Thailand for our honeymoon for four and half days. I am very happy because the last time I went outside Singapore and Indonesia is in 2008 (I went to Beijing and Guangzhou that time). So, it has been 10 years since that time!

There are many memorable moments there and we visited many places. On first day, we went to Sea World and Madame Tussaud in Bangkok. I am impressed by the wax statues there and I think it is really similar to real person. One noticeable thing in Bangkok is there are more dogs than cats, different from Singapore and Indonesia.

On the second day, we went to ancient temple along the Mekong River of Bangkok – Wat Pho and Wat Arun, where I had a foot massage there for awhile. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to visit Grand Palace because when we reached there in the morning there is a ceremony and the entrance was not opened for public. We then tried to come back in the evening but we just realized that the opening hour is only until 3pm. We reached there 15 mins late and we cannot enter.

Hence, we ride tuk tuk (It’s a kind of motor trishaw in Thailand) and went to Wat Saket (Temple of Golden Mount) instead. It is a Buddhist temple on the top of the hill and from the top you can see entire Bangkok and the scenery is very nice. However, we need to climb a lot of stairs to reach the top. It is quite cloudy when we climbed that stairs and luckily we managed to reach the top and get the picture near its big bell before rain started.

From Wat Saket, we ride tuk tuk again to reach Khao San road and this is basically a street market for tourists, selling merchandise, clothes, bags, shoes and so on. My wife went here and bought several clothes for both of our parents and relatives. After that, we walked to the river bank and took ferry to reach our hostel. We put our stuffs and we visited massage parlor as my wife want to have massage there (she did not do that in Wat Pho because she felt it is quite expensive…).

After went from massage parlor, She just realized that she lost her mobile phone and she said she asked me to keep it for her but I forgot. There is a bit quarrel between us but we returned to that parlor and found her mobile phone on the sofa where I sat. So, apparently the phone was slipped out of my pocket when I sat there.

However, this case does not reduce our enjoyment for the picnic we have in Bangkok for two days. Next, I will continue the story of another two days of our picnic in Phuket.

I am currently Indonesian expatriate working in Singapore. I am currently working as security researcher in National University of Singapore. I write this blog to share to readers about my life principle on various aspects, like religion, politics, business, relationship, and technology. I am interested in alternative worldviews because I found that many things taught to us by establishments are not true and harmful. My dream is to become self-sufficient in food and energy. Hopefully, someday I can have my own fruit garden and my own power plant and able to sell my electricity to power company. I hope readers enjoy my blog.
