Lonely Friday

A first time in a very very long time since the last time i stayed here in Bangkok for the weekend. I get out of Bangkok every Friday, a traffic jam, working in an office everyday sometimes that kinda life can make me so sick!. A visit to my parents house would be a very very nice idea to do so for every Friday.

Somehow i didn't manage to get out of town at this weekend instead of having a Company golf competition on Saturday morning. I thought i needed a practice before having a real swing on tomorrow, an idea of going to a driving range is not such a bad idea at all!!.

Eventually its turn bad, I stuck in a %$@! jam for almost an hour on the way to a driving range. The ideas of having a nice night is totally gone, an empty stomach even make me so mad about everything.

The All Star golf club, the best driving range in Bangkok.

That was a good Friday night.

Lets go to Pat-phong

When we talk about "Pat-Phong", we often though of sex show, prostitution and a lot more thing that you can think of in a sexual way!!. Somehow this area became the most popular attraction for most of the foreigners. As a Thai people and walking pass this area everyday i find it kinda disgusting to see and strongly feel that those Thai(woman) can be better than just a pole dancer.

Hey! I'm just only mention about Pat-phong, sex show but I'm not a pervert alright, we have a chance to walk into this street today and i thought of how should i write about this famous street that's all.

A cheap lunch can be easily find around Pat-phong, as my working place only across the street from here. An alley leading us from the main street to the lunch place, a bit scary but worth to give it a try. If this is at night time i cant imagine what will this alley will turn to!!@#.

Finally the alley then leading us to this canteen of a Hospital (are we lost, i asked my colleague) how the hell!! did we turn up in here at the hospital's canteen!..haha. We manage to find some seat and HuuReyyy!! its lunch time.

Thailand the land of smile(food).........................

Little Japanese town

Do you know that we have a (little) Japanese town in Bangkok?. Well maybe i shouldnt use the word "town" perhaps i should have call it "Japanese street". Its located on Silom street, Soi Thaniya. "Soi" is the term used in Thailand for a side-street branching off a major street. The place well know for a varieties of Golf equipment, Japanese food and a place for a gentleman(if you know what i mean!).

A quick lunch with my Dad at the Japanese restaurant at soi Thaniya, the environment, the street, the people and the food somehow in that moment it make me feel like I'm at another side of the world. A unique place in that very small corner, a must place to visit when you are here in Bangkok!.

A juicy and thick Katsu curry is what we had for lunch even though how much my Dad dislike in any (i mean any) curry, I somehow can manage to drag and beg him to try this Japanese curry for lunch...haha. He kinda like it and in the end he nicely asked me if he can have another Udon soup!!.. (errr..rr go ahead Dad!).

Play without pain

Yesterday was a public holiday, it was Makabucha day. There are three important Buddhist celebrations which is Makabucha Day (on February), Asahabucha Day (on July), Visakabucha Day (May). We suppose to go to the temple but somehow i didn't manage to go (as always).

Instead of going to the temple I spend half of my day watching TV at home and trying to enjoy my day off as much as i can. Sound a bit lazy don't you think haha but somehow i think i deserve it!.

Sitting in an office everyday, working in front of a computer somehow that kinda life can easily make me become overweight. One way or another i think i URGENTLY!! need to do some exercise before i will have a heart attack while I'm trying to figure it out which programme should i use it first between Illustrator or MSN!!.

People said Golf is not a sport, as you cant get anything much from it because you only play with yourself and a ball!!. you know what i kinda agree with that from my experiences. At first i almost give up with this sport but at the end of the day it became the passion and the satisfaction.

Did you know Tiger woods earn 90$ million per yer, PER YEAR!. That is the reason why this sport is so famous nowadays, everyone want to be as rich as him. If you can win for just one tournament, you can easily be a billionaires already. aiihh too bad I'm just a beginner.
Well enough of BS, here is what i do on Makabucha's day. Go to a driving range with my parents, hit some balls, practicing and trying to improve my skill and desperately hope one day i can be like Tiger woods.

Uniquely Singapore

Singapore or Singapura "is an island nation located at the southern tip of the Peninsula. It lies 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the Equator, south of the Malaysian state of Johor and north of Indonesia's Riau Islands. At 704.0 km² (272 sq mi), it is one of the few remaining city-states in the world and the smallest country in Southeast Asia".

Another place on earth that i rather die for to visit!, even though is so close to Thailand but i have never been there before. Well I've been to Johor state not Johor Baru but Tang-kak, not so close to Singapore but hahaha i guess that is another step closer to my uniquely Singapore dream!!.

What to do, what to see, and what to eat in Singapore. People said Singapore is the food capital of Asia, the culture, people and many many things are making this small country growing strong and this is what i call life "so happening!!". woohuuu...

look at that! Isnt that a place you want to live or even visit for one in your life time, so Happening!!

"same same"

I got confused by some of the Thai (famous) movie, such as Ong-bak, Tom-yum-goong, Tom-yum-goong and the latest one which is very similar or it maybe even the same kinda style/story "Chocolate". Tony jar is now currently shooting his Ong-bak part 2 which is soon will be release sometime this year.

Even though those movie are pretty much the same in style but somehow it can bring such a surprise everytime when its hits the cinema!.

Mai Pen Rai (attitude)

"Mai Pen Rai" means never mind. People said that is a Thai attitude, the attitude to say "mai pen rai" no matter what it is. In my point of view, i often said it as well and it maybe become a "routine saying" of everything we do here.

I often think why dont we just say "Mai dai" which means "can not" instead of Mai pen rai, to be hornest i kinda hate to say "mai dai" to anyone though. Its seem like you breaking people heart when u said that.

"Thailand the land of smile". Remember to use it when you are here.

"If you want to really understand Thai people you must come to grips with the Mai Pen Rai factor. Its not just a phrase its way of life. Literally meaning, it does not matter, it has come to be one of the great definers of the Thai character. Being able to deal with difficult situations, not brooding over material and personal loss and an all-pervading cheerfulness are the hallmarks of Mai Pen Rai. The philosophy of Mai Pen Rai is one of the things that makes Thai unique"
