Well well it’s been in Thailand for a week and a half and I haven’t blogged yet. ridikulus.
So here I am in a country dubbed as the Land of Smiles – maybe for no longer. The world has heard of the tragedy that is the clash between the red shirts and the yellow shirts. I don’t know how much we changed as a country; lives in the outskirts of Bangkok, where I lived, seems usual and ordinary. The situation has died down, and Bangkok seems rather.. stable. Perhaps, it is the mental and the psychological impact that we don’t see. How much damage? Who knows. When will it end? Who knows. Anyway, amidst all this uncertainty and melancholy, the resilient Thais have resumed our quotidian lives. So I shall.
So, on the plane, the air hostess brought me Kit Kat and a ham and cheese muffin. I was nibbling on the muffin when the air hostess came back to collect the box. NOOOO. She took away my Kit Kat. Unacceptable. I called her and got my Kit Kat back. She had a good laugh. wutevs. I have my Kit Kat 😀
Also, food on Japan Airlines is amazing. Amazing, but the portion is really small. If you haven’t heard, I eat more than the average American, which is unusual for a small Asian. lol.
Next item on the list. Volunteer camp. I went to teach science to young kids in Chanthaburi. Slept on the floor of the classroom – easy target for mosquitoes. They feasted on me.
Lastly, reading ‘The Geography of Bliss’ by Eric Weiner. Doesn’t the title shout Pete Pete Pete? A good read for ‘grumps’ searching for happiness.
Andddd on a scale of 1 to 10, I’m a 3. Haven’t been above 6 for a very long time I’d say.
