On 11th May 2007 we had a very nice trip to Bangkok. Our flight was on 8:45am. I didn’t sleep that night. Not because of the excitement, but because of that stupid Okami game which gets on my nerve. Freaking wolf trying to be the sun goddess… T.T
Anyway Teh picked me up at roughly around 6:30am and we went to pick up Ali (what a damn typical Malay name 😛 ) at one of the McD’s outlet near here. After that we went to pick up Ina at her home in Taman U. One hell of an adventure, as the traffic jam is inevitable and Teh’s driving skills are like.. uhh.. let’s just say that my mom drove better than him. 😛
Us @ Senai Airport.
Went on the plane on time. Arrived at LCCT roughly 45 minutes after take-off. We were sitting duck for about 4 hours before our flight to Bangkok. Nothing much happened there, except that we all sits on the floor enjoying our hearty breakfast of Nasi Ambang courtesy of So’od.
Ali, Teh and your’s truly.
Bangkok was nice! I mean seriously, I think it’s more modernized than Johor Bahru. Well you can’t blame them. It’s Thailand’s capital city, aye? And check this out : Bangkok’s real name is not really Bangkok. Confused? The original name for the city is Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, which translated as “Kota Maha Dewa” in Malay. Sounds cool, huh? 2nd fact, that is just the short name for the REAL name of the city. The real name?
Krungthep Mahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathani Burirom-udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amonphiman Awatansathit Sakkathattiya Witsanu Kamprasit.
“The city of angels, the great city, the eternal jewel city, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukam”
For some reason, the word ‘Dewa’ is given the meaning of ‘Angels’ here. I have no freaking idea why.
This is what greeted us once we’ve arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok. There are 4 other statues like this, one with a different colours. One main problem here in Bangkok is that most of the people can’t speak English. Even if they could, it’s very, very, very broken and you would have to have the patients of a teacher to at least know what the heck they are saying. This is because Thailand was never occupied, and so the people really uphold their tradition. A very contrast situation to us Malaysians, as most of us are trying to be a Punk or a Satanist. No hard feelings now, aye?
Then it’s just another typical trip. THe best part is the dinner. We went on a cruise which cruises across Bangkok along god-knows-the-name-of-the-river. The cruise name is Chao Praya Princess. I guess the river is Chao Praya? O.o
The cruise was cool!! Hey it rhymes.. uhh.. anyway.. it really has this cool atmosphere.. well.. you know.. uhh..
This is Jamal and me. Yeah we were doing that gay shit on board. Who the hell cares? Thailand is a free country now aye? heheh
OMG there is so much to write…. Let’s just put photos now aye?
Me and Teh
Me, Jamal and So’od
This is MY fav!! It’s like me and my pet dragon Lulu.. Oh Lulu I miss you.. T.T
With those Shah Alam girls… 😛
Will return with the 2nd post. We went to the palace HOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
