Thailand 2012: Bangkok

This is my fourth time in Bangkok. My dad enjoys Thailand so we always end up here lol
Enroute to Bangkok we passed by Bee Farm and Elephant farm.

Bee Farm
Scary but still forced a smile
Jollibee Thai version hahaha

Honey chocolate ice cream. Really interesting mix. (40 baht)
around 600 bhat/person
Really fun, especially for little children! My little Kevin looked pissed off up there but laughed his way back ;]

This classic Thai soup is a MUST 

Actually, our goal this trip is to worship that 4 Faced Buddha.
Since I'm a believer of Jesus, I just sat there and observed the people's actions.



The rest of our Bangkok trip was spent shopping.
(Just check their website to see when their next big sale is!)


Thailand 2012: PATTAYA

Here are the highlights of the trip! 
And some tips if you are travelling to Thailand.


If we have to compare Pattaya to an island in the Philippines, it has to be Boracay.
This is where the sand, the sun, and the party are.
A difference is, Pattaya is also known for its red light district. 
And no, I did not dare indulge in that part of their culture.
Party truck. 
The original Vita Milk
This mango rice up there is one of my favorites in Thailand. 
It is composed of coconut milk (gata), Mango and sticky rice. Sweet, sour and a hint of coconut milk in one bite. A must try! (Around 50 baht= 70 pesos?)

Pattaya is also known for its many variety shows. One of the most popular one is of course the, transgender show. 
If you have watched the Amazing Show in Manila, it's something similar. Except the one we are talking about here in Pattaya is the original one.
(1300 pesos)

If you are not into the arts and culture, this is what most likely will happen to you

Off to Coral Island!
Angel, my dearest family friend
The boat ride gave me an adrenaline rush. Mr. Captain, please do slow down your pace next time.


Here at the stop point. Yay for Parasailing!
The only thrilling part is when you run. When you're up there, gosh I swear I felt like sleeping.

I believe I can fly..

Chilling under the many umbrellas in Coral Island

Next up: Bangkok

Boracay 2012

I won't blog about my Taiwan trip anymore. I bet it's just going to look like a food catalogue.
This post shows 1/4 of what happened in Boracay. Let's just say not all because I didn't bring my camera.
Read till the end to know how I managed to return despite my airplane leaving me.
 April 25- May5
My mom lives in Boracay , so of course I stayed with her.

For the first 4 days, I spent it with my dearest batchmates.

International Dragon Boat Competition

Allow me to elaborate on the photo above. That event is called PUBCRAWL.
You pay a certain amount of fee, then you get to go to 5 different bars/clubs with free drinks.
Not only that, you get to meet new friends and play games together!
Met friends from Finland, Germany, Singapore, and many more.
Behind the scenes lol

ATV stop point: Mt. Luho

May I just explain that face you see right there. The little boy guaranteed that that eagle wouldn't mess with me. Guess what happened, it did.
Mt. Luho// Henna meaning: Courage

Next, I spent around 3 days with my other set of batch mates and with Ann.

Shouted like a maniac during that bungee jumping ride
One of those party nights. This picture was taken at Epic.
The boat flipped and we fell in the middle of the ocean. Fortunately, rescue boats came. I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

Just woke up/weather is pissing me off face.

May 25.
My mom and I rented a private van to go to Kalibo for my return flight.
Chilled in resto while a kuya helped me check in and all.
While enjoying my iced coffee..
Kuya: "mam, yung flight mo lumipad na. May 24 ticket mo."
I was filled with guilt for not checking while my mom just chuckled.
Just bought a new ticket on the spot.

And so we went to my mom's friend, Mr Park's, house in Kalibo

The end

New Year's concert!

I had small talk with some of the students there.
THEN, they said they could reserve places for us the next day.
 I'm a huge fan of Taiwanese music and show business so...
 JUST IMAGINE MY REACTION ( for those who know me, you know how I sound like)
you mad

The next day,

it's me again

While walking to the venue, this guy was distributing questionnaires. 
To make the long story short, he became our new friend! His name is Terry.
