08 Nov 28 - Hey, what's this?

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

The PAD is still blocking all of the international airports in Bangkok, stalling and rendering the air transport 'dead.'
Thousands of tourists are stuck in Thailand after their vacation and it severely affects the Kingdom's image in a negative way.
Thai's commerce is dead and will be long dead.


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


An old friend who's still in Penang, contacted me during his trip to Hat Yai a few days ago.
Well, he told me to add him in Friendster and provides me with a few way to access into his Photos, which would include the pictures of his class.


This was taken last year, at the last year of his high school. Without a doubt, I notice 3 very familiar faces (they doesnt change), and another 2 familiar girls but I wasnt too sure if my guess was right.

I've never been to the classroom, but I can guess that the classroom's located in either the 2nd or 3rd floor of the building.


And another pic where I remember those 2 familiar faces. Blind guess, I remember that very familiar stairs that I passed to every week.


And this is a picture taken during the dinner to celebrate for graduating from the high schools.

There, we notice another 3 familiar faces, and I cant stop laughing when I see the person sitting in the middle. He reminds me of a Chinese Superstar in the TV.

Lam said I've changed quite a lot, far different than how I looks like 8 years ago.
Well, what can I say? Gotta agree I've changed quite a lot and hardly few can reconize me now, it's not that bad though, but I'm still discontent at this of me yet.

It's a wonderful meeting with an old friend and there was an offer for me to work in Penang.

Now I cant really make up my mind haha.

08 Nov 25 - PAD causes more trouble for Thailand


Sick of the mob.
Anyways, to make it brief, the PAD had mobbed the entire Bangkok again, blocking roads to major areas and renders the road in paralysis.

During the ASEAN meeting, the Singapore's official was asking the Thai's Prime Minister why road-politics prevails in Thailand.

What a shame!

08 Nov 24 - Hat Yai Vegetarian's Festival

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

I'm not that old.. but it still catches my attention what-so-ever, so take a look.
How to Look 5 Years Younger!

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

I posted of the Vegetarian's event in Hat Yai last Year as well.

This year, I could take a look at the event in a close-up and the backstage as a friend of mine from the PSU was also an organizer.

Last month, in Hat Yai, there was a celebration related to the Vegetarian's Week, where each participants is required to eat vegetables and wear white clothes for the week.

The event is quite similar to cleansing one's self from sins, sparing the life of thousands of chickens (or pigs) that we eat daily.


Just click on the picture for a larger version, where you can see that these guys are seriously piercing it across.






The man is performing a dance, and you notice Pheng in the left side of the photo. He was the 'lead' for the man together with 7 other members from the Waad Khong Liang Temple.




There's also an international participant here, according to a friend who was also in the organizer's comittee, he's a Malaysian, but I couldnt remember his name.





A seriously long caravan, and traffic was jammed due to the caravan.




One of the Shopping Malls in the area organizes a Chinese Table for the executives to ask for blessings by drinking those teas.


There's also a respectable monk giving out holy waters to the people. Believe or not, you gotta ask for one too.

And finally, the climax of the event was the celebration in front of Lee Garden, where thousands of people was watching it, whether from the Central Shopping Mall, the Hotel or the area nearby.

If you miss this year's festival, might want to check it out next year. :)

08 Nov 21 - Slipped from the Road

I've heard of bus accidents in Thailand everyday and I know how unorganized and their 'rude' way of driving are sometimes.





Lucky I wasnt stuck in the accident, and at the same time, the passengers was lucky that it wasnt a serious accident.

08 Nov 17 - L S M B F

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

How many of you actually things that Obama deserves the right to keep his BlackBerry?
Why not? It's a tool that could help him govern the States better, dont you think so?
Click me to check out the article.


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

So to start.
No names, so I'll state the people involved here as L, S, M, B and F.

L (Female) is a the girlfriend of M (Male), both was separated in an inevitable event and both was never given a chance to know of where each other were.
L Misses M to her heart's content and wishes to see M, but she doesnt know where to begin the search.
B heard of it, and told L that he knows where M is, and volunteers to bring her to M for a price.
However, the price is far too much for L to afford.
L met S who soon offered to pay for the fees required to pay B in exchange for L's virginity.
L accepted the offer from S just for the sake of finding M.
F is a friend of M heard of what happened, and informed M of the truth.
Upon their meeting, the furious M broke his relation with L.
Conclusion: L was hurt most, to lose her virginity and her boyfriend.

What I wanted to ask was.
Who is to blame the most and who is the less to blame?
If you still havent given it a thought, please re-read before sharing up your thought. :)

Now to ease the curiosity, just click and read what I've posted in my comment box.

What is your answer?

08 Nov 16 - Backstabbing

You know the word "Backstabbed"
Now I know the meaning of a "Backstabber"
I wonder if they knows what "Backstab" means.
But I'm sure they realize that they are "Backstabbing"

Just a tale, shouldnt really stress on it, but oh well, maybe it's best forgotten.

08 Nov 12 - Loy Loy Krathong

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Both pictures are from my trip to the PSU in Hat Yai last year.

The Post is here: 07-Nov-27 Roy Krakthong Festival
-------------------------------------------------------------------------



How disappointing, I realized that I forgotten both my Camera and my Handphone on the way to Hat Yai's Public Garden.
Well, I couldnt say much as it was my fault to be rushing to the Public Garden after being late for chatting in the Kenny's Cbox.

We meet up with Phong, Tira, Khon and a few other Doctors, Pharmacists and the seniors before getting up for some investment related talks.

Actually, we did another thing that my boss recently recommended me to.



Four of us who were investors and was directly involved in the BLISS-TEL punting last year, wrote up the word "BLISS" in a piece of paper and together with the paper, we put in a 10 baht coin into the Krathong before setting them to sail.

It was just an hour meeting as the weather seems to be upset all the night.

Let us hope that the Krathong will sail toward it's destination and allows us to be free.



PS: I found this song perfect for our Loy Krathong mood, and oh, it's another one by ハツネ ミク。

Hope you enjoyed it, love you guys and girls, and thanks Yui and Tira for the flowers today.

08 Nov 11 - New Car


I once posted that we got a new car since we was unable to continue with the license for our Mitsubishi Strada, thus is the main reason for us to be getting a new car.



It was a decision to be getting the Honda Jazz which was quite famous at the time.
The gear was an auto it was generally easier to drive than our old car, there's only a few downside where it could hardly run for an out-of-city use as it's light and not meant to run for an out-of-city use.

The positive side would include that the smaller petrol tank means smaller hole for my wallter.

08 Nov 09 - Many things to fix


I was just back from an expedition last night, it's related to our pharmacist work regarding herb extraction and the likes.

Life's still pretty much crooked due to the lack of time. Work ate up 10 hours per day, and other life events pretty much cuts me off from blogging.

I should find the time to meet all the nice guys and girls :)

08 Nov 05 - Change has come to America!

Obama had won! The 44th President of the United States.

This has been a big news for almost all of us.
To be honest, I've always been on the Republican even for Bush 4 years ago. (I'd say that Bush is still a better President than the other)

But when it comes to this year, as I always said, I'd rather choose a President based on the individual candidate than the party.

And so, since the change will directly affects the world's economy, I had to keep a close watch on him and his policies.

The First Black President, a history for the American!

According to what I heard, Obama is born in Indonesia, he studied in Jakarta and had a father who is a Kenyan.

I'd like to assume that our new President is capable of communicating in Indonesian language, thus it'd be an honor for me if I could meet and have a friendly conversation with him.

Good luck to our new President and let's hope he could find a way to improve everything, the war, the world economy and the hot earth.

08 Nov 04 - Temple on Car

Yes, it's actually a car, you can see the wheel if I take a closer shot at it.
Where else can you see a temple on top of a car?

Oh yes, sometimes, you can see monks sitting in them and going around the city to spread the teaching of the Buddhist.

You can actually see this kind of events every year in Thailand.

Enjoy yourself~

08 Nov 02 - My First Love... Revisited

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

I found a rather interesting article in MSN, it's about our first love, just hope to share it with you guys.
Original Topic: My First Love.... Revisited

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


Five years after parting ways with her college crush, she texted him and proposed drinks. There was a dizzying rush when they reconnected, but perhaps that first love ended for good reasons…
I fell hard for my college boyfriend. He was the kind of guy who read The Economist and had hot abs the captain of the debate team in the prom king's body. As a recovering wallflower, I felt like I'd won the lottery when we got together. But in a year-and-a-half, he morphed into a controlling jerk, one who told me I should work out more and stop trying to sound deep. It was first love gone wrong, so I ended it.

I was 21 at the time, with every chance of meeting someone else who could deliver those jackpot highs without the ego-crushing lows. Except that I didn't. Five years passed, and still the specter of first love — tainted as it was — haunted me. I wondered if he had come to regret his old behavior and if I had evolved into someone he could value. So, stuck at the office on a Tuesday night, I text-messaged him cold and asked if he would meet me for a drink.

Forty-five minutes later, we were sipping Stellas. He had the same athletic shape, the same gray-blue eyes … conversation flowed. When I caught his eyes on my cleavage, I felt triumphant. And when he offered his interpretation of our breakup (that we'd just been too young to get it right), I agreed. I knew it was revisionist history; I just didn't care. If I could patch together a full-circle happy ending, I could prove I hadn't wasted all the energy and excitement of first love on the wrong person.

"I'm going to have to see you again," he said, adding that he'd call in a few days. In bed that night, still drunk on the promise of reconciliation, I made a list of talking points for our next meeting — the ways he could make it up to me, how it would be different this time.

And then … nothing. I waited a week before I dialed his number, then convinced him to meet me for dinner, but the hope I'd felt that Tuesday night was growing cold. I'd expected remorse, poetic apologies, and maybe even flowers from him, to atone for the emotional blows he'd dealt me years earlier. Instead, I was begging for a dinner.

Turns out, that dinner never happened. Instead, he launched into textbook game-playing — delaying our meeting, downgrading to drinks, then canceling hours beforehand via e-mail. I knew then that there would be no blissful reunion. He wasn't my rediscovered soul mate — he was my toxic ex-boyfriend, and he hadn't changed.

I told him no thanks on rescheduling. And when he resurfaced months later, saying he "still felt a connection," I felt nothing. I knew then that the myth of "first love" no longer held any power over me. But the power I felt in giving him the brush? Now that was sweet.
