Finally, Gundam stuff

Day 3 (March 2) - Saw some Gundam-related items on the 3rd floor of Terminal 21, Asoke. ^^

The Victory Monument

Day 3 (March 2) - Visited the Victory Monument, Ratchathewi.

Besides having a BTS Skytrain station that would bring you right to the monument, you can see from the images above that the Skytrain track goes around it as well, on top the fact that it's the center piece of a huge roundabout with heavy traffic.

Normal, very normal

Day 3 (March 2) - Was out walking in Bangkok when I noticed something special about the street vendors near Phloen Chit BTS Skytrain station.

The vendors' stalls are right behind a railway track. ^^

Animal Sunday

Sunday 1 March was the second day of my trip here in Thailand. With no proper plan in mind as to where exactly to go, and no contingency plan when I did arrive in certain places, I found myself getting lost in various places around the city, even though I didn't mind about it at all.

Well, maybe not the super hot weather so much. ^^;

Following the true essence of the Random series, this posting is going to be more about some of the animals I've seen in the city just on Sunday itself. How about that for a travel-related posting? XD

That annoyed look shows just how much the cat enjoyed having its photo taken. ^^

The amazing ice-cream man

Besides Pad Thai, I had Turkish ice-cream, or Dondurma as dessert last Saturday night. ^^

Following the known practise of teasing the customers when serving them the ice-cream, the old gentleman did play a few tricks on the guy in Borussia Dortmund jersey with the ice-cream cone.

With Borussia Dortmund recovering in form recently after an extended run of terrible results in the Bundesliga, the guy probably wouldn't mind getting more teasing from the old vendor. XD

Then again, the old vendor was much subtler than his peer in Turkey: ^^

Video clip is from Youtube. Follow this link to the website if you can't see anything.

I didn't get teased at all, because I ordered mine in one of those plastic cups. XD

You can get your Dondurma in Bangkok and get teased when buying it at:

Dubai Restaurant
Soi 4, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana
Bangkok 10110, Thailand.

Getting souvenirs even before reaching Bangkok

Sawadee-kap from Bangkok! ^^

Mentioned in the previous posting that I wanted to continue to blog while being away on vacation, and while Internet connection isn't an issue since the moment I reached my hotel here in Bangkok, I guess I'm having too much fun with my time here and got too lazy to keep that promise even to myself. ^^;

Then again, I don't want to keep my blog idle until 10 days later, so instead of consolidating everything into one long posting everyday, I'll be releasing short ones that are fun and interesting (hopefully ^^;) every now and then to make sure there're continuously new postings to be seen on the blog. Longer postings with greater details can wait, since I would need to do a bit of research on the places, location, and specific points before I can blog about them. Those postings would be coming after I return home next week. ^^

The journey coming to Bangkok was a unique one, as I took a "detour" to Singapore before flying into Thailand. As a result of that, I went through three different airports last Saturday (28 February).

Kuching International Airport in the morning.

Off on vacation

I'll be off to Thailand and Singapore for the next 11 days for my vacation, so the regular reviews on the blog are going to be halted during that period. As a result of that, the transformation design of Transformers Specialist Decepticons: Galvatron would only be featured in the second week of next month, even though the review series was just kickstarted in the previous posting. ^^;

Then again, that "immediate" continuation of the review series when I come back is based on the assumption that I would be able to "function" properly when I get back. If I relax too much during this vacation, which in a fun way is what I'm hoping to achieve (XD), Galvatron, and other stuff I plan to review would have to wait much longer before I decide to resume my blogging. ^^

On the other hand, I'm hoping to be able to do some blogging during my vacation, since the experience of visiting foreign places would provide some fun and refreshing materials to be posted. I always thought it was unfortunate that I didn't get to do any blogging during my visit to Singapore last year, so I'm quite determined this time to continue blogging while being away from my home town. ^^

While I'm away, the always dependable Miyuki will be looking after my collectibles back at home. ^^

See, no problem at all. XD
