Beach Bumming and Misadventures in Phuket

March 24, 2015 Tsina 0 Comments

I added Phuket on my Indochina itinerary, just because I needed some time for myself. But seriously, I lola mode on my entire Thailand trip! I left my baggage in the hotel, ditched Ayutthaya, shopped and then watched the movie Gone Girl by myself on the day before my flight to Phuket. I read the book during the trip, and was thoroughly impressed on it. The movie did not disappoint as well. And hey, it was my first time to watch a movie by myself. Yay. When the movie ended, I went to the airport and decided to wait for my flight. I did not book in a hostel, but thought of staying in the airport. The flight was scheduled at 7am. Yes, I know, it was a very lousy decision. I was hoping that I could stay at Starbucks to read, but no, the store closed. So I tried to sleep in the waiting area, but it was difficult. Good thing, I did not cry out of frustration. But I would definitely not do that again. 

When I arrived in Phuket, I looked for a van to bring me to Phuket. Phuket is a bit costly compared to Bangkok. I paid B180. When I arrived at the hostel, I immediately went out to find the beach. Nothing astounding, but I have this beach for the next days to enjoy. I did not engage in any activities, but beach bummed the whole time.
There were people parasailing, but since I'm almost broke at this point of the trip, I decided to just watch them. :P People watching is cool too, you know. :P
But of course, I ate a lot too. I scurried to the nearby mall for some cheap stuff, and ice cream. :P Just look at me, I fit in, right? :P
Oh, and by the way, my only adventure in Phuket was finding that massage parlor that people were raving about. You know how bad I was in direction, right? It was funny getting lost, I was using Google maps for crying out loud. It was a bit far from the mall, and then I got lost, and I was using a cheap pair of slippers I bought around the beach area, and so when I found the massage parlor, I had blisters already. What a shame. It was difficult to get lost in Phuket (Thailand in general) because there were still not that adept in English.

I had a whole body massage, and good thing it was worth every baht I paid. And because I didn't want to walk all the way back to the hotel, I decided to hitch in a motorcycle. Sigh. I paid around B50.

I had a grand time beach bumming in Phuket, it was a lazy time for me. Just the rest and relaxation I needed after I went through the tunnels in Vietnam and the temples in Cambodia, right?

If I sit here waiting, would you come here and sit beside me? And maybe, just maybe, we can discover the world. I am sitting here, and waiting.. maybe, just maybe, you'll get lost and find me.

It was bad. I would probably tell you all the snarkiest details. You would probably be indignant on my behalf. But you would remind me to do my best still; and to show them the stuff that I am made of. Because even the most insulting words cannot dampen my spirit.

Temple Hopping in Bangkok

March 07, 2015 Tsina 0 Comments

We spent almost an entire day in the bus/van going to Thailand from Siem Reap. It was a butt-wrenching time. We started exploring Bangkok the following day, Eyann's last day with me. 

We decided to start the day mall hopping before we visit touristy places. Bad idea. We went to the Grand Palace, it was closed already. So we moved to Wat Pho, the temple of the Reclining Buddha. Wat Pho is one of the oldest and largest Buddhist temples in Bangkok. The reclining buddha is huge. We paid 100 baht/pax.

We explored the place a bit, and decided to head to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. We did not enter Wat Arun, it was late. We boarded the ferry, and went to the Chang Ferry station, and waited at the park to capture a good photo of the temple.

Another temple hopping day for us, but this time in Bangkok. It would probably be okay not to see a temple in the next five years. :P 

So we only visited these places, and I definitely did not see a lot of Bangkok, I should plan another trip to this place. Maybe I'll do better next time, Bangkok!

I am pretty sure that I will not win all my battles. But if I am going to lose, I want to lose in a fair game. And please, when I lose, come to me and hug me, tell me that the world will keep on shining for me. Please be proud of me still, my love.

Be happy. Be very happy; taunt the world with your happiness. Just be very happy, and that should be enough for me.

Is there anything else better than our best?

He is similar to the unperturbed wind that dimmed the star. When she trusts someone, she lets her guard down. It is a cycle; the lesson not learned.
