08 Feb 28 - Thaksin Stepped Foot in His Homeland

Image
I live in Southern Thailand, the Land famous to be under the rule of the opposition party, Democrat; well known to oppose the previous and the current government.

The current government, has always been known to be a puppet under Thaksin Shinawatra's control, and has received numerous of election charges from the Democrat.

2 Years ago, while Thaksin was on a meeting in the United States of America, Sonthik Boonyaratkarin had led the army to commit a coup d'etat to overthrow the Thai Rak Thai and sent Thaksin in exile.


Now back to the special event today.



After 17 months of exile, Thaksin finally came back to Thailand.
The worst thing that came to my mind is, the timing of his return.

I would like to stay un-biased for a moment, and share the moment of his return.

First, when you really love your homeland, the first thing you'll do is 'kiss your homeland.'
And if you are sincere about it, you'll do it right after you set foot on your homeland, not when the press are th…

08 Feb 25 - Recovered

Just a short entry.

I've finally recovered and will be back to the internet.

Finally was able to create a 'timetable' to do everything that I've to do, come to think of it, 6 hours to do whatever I want per day is quite a lot, if I didnt get addicted with anything.

Thanks for all support :)

08 Feb 21 - Sinusitic?

Image
My nose has been a pain for several days, and then my eye started to hurt.
This morning, my nose and eye swells.

So after much diagnosis, it's assumed that I suffers from Sinus.
My nose and eye does hurt and I really felt like going for the doctor right away.

Funny, 72 hours after the first symptom, I headed to the doctor only to be told that it was a normal infection, and all I need to do is wait for the swell on my eye to dry up or something.

Ah... I wonder. I hope it's just a normal infection.

08 Feb 17 - Chinese New Year (Final)

Image
Even though Chinese New Year starts from the 7th, it doesnt mean that the celebration would end that fast in Had Yai.

The celebration goes all the way from 7th until the 16th here.

Here are some picture of the celebration in the Central area.



As usual, the celebration is held around the famous hotel of Lee Garden.


Also famous for the makan-makan business.


Randomly taking photograph.


It's waging it's tail happily, I wonder...


Upon searching why it happily wages its tail, I spot this..


Forgetting the dog business, I toured around and there are place for you to spread your love for the King. There's a yellow cloth below for the citizens and tourists to write their wishes down.


Here's several photo of what's going on in the area:

Fruit Cocktail anyone?


Or you prefer the simpler "Char Kueh Tiaw"?


Even satay and BBQs.


And finally, isnt it nice to finish your dinner with some sweet snack?


Of course, not only food are served in the celebration area, but there's also severa…

08 Feb 13 - Chicken for Chinese New Year anyone?

Image
Talk about Chinese New Years, there'll be lots and lots of Oranges.

You'll be receiving or giving it for present, but my boss receives something that I never thought one would gave him.

After the plastic bag was placed. something came up..


"Where am I?"


"Help me!!"


I pity the poor thing, but what can I do?
Soon the poor thing was nicely packed in a box, complete with a 'window' for it to breathe.
The chicken was scheduled to be taken back home and slaughtered to be their dinner.


"Can somebody hear me?!"


Luckily, good news said that my boss wasnt in the mood to do those as it's too much hassle, thus the chicken was given to another co-worker for him to release it in an open environment.

It should be safe and sound, I suppose.

Talk about you, what did you get for your Chinese New Year?

08 Feb 08 - Chinese New Year BBQ Party

Image
My boss decided to stop working for a day and do something different this year, such as, a Home BBQ Party.
After 2 weeks of preparations, the plans are set.
Of course, it'll not be only a party within the working colleagues but my boss shall also invite his relatives to the party.


And so it was 7th Feb, after rendezvouzing, we head straight to the 'party' area.

It was about an hour or 2 before we started setting up the BBQ, preparing to grill the foods.


My boss who's grilling the BBQ.


Still in the process of sharpening our grilling skill.


Well talk about food, while waiting for the preparations to be completed, I was able to tour around my boss's 'new' house.

Here are some interesting views from different angles of the compound.







Enough of Garden views. Here is what really made me feel that this place is similar to a perfection resort of some sort.




The 2 buildings were seperated from each other by a 'river' like pond, and a wooden bridge was established in ord…

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ever think about the different path you'll need to take in life?

Do I really want to sacrifice my time for more studies?
Furthermore, it's something that I half heartedly wants, I just need the license and part of the
knowledge, not all.

What should I do now? Pursue for something that I need orwhat?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I've seen how the technicians installs the air conditioners, but this one is definitely one that is considered "rare."

The pics generally said it all.










From the 4th floor.
I guess people from all over the world do weird things, not only us Asians.
