Bangkok, Thailand Finale

Posted by Joshua |



I'm going to finish off Bangkok trip. It has been dragging for almost 1 month.

Our next destination is Grand Palace. We took BTS from our hotel Sala Daeng to Saphan Taksin then took boat from Satron to Tha Chang


Did took a photo of Grand Palace from outside, didn't went in for visit. Admission fee is 350baths per person.


After the visit of Grand Palace we went for lunch. This is a recommend place for lunch or dinner located nearby the palace.

Pathe antique and restaurant.


The rice are served in heart and star shape.

About 6-7pm we went for a short nite walk then we saw this...

Restaurant in Petrol Kiosk.





We also tried sticky rice mango. Very nice!


We also didn't miss the Thai massage. 200 bath for 1 hour tradisional massage.


The next day we head back to KL, Malaysia. Have to say Good Bye! :(

Seriously, this Take A Nap hotel really worthy to stay lor if u plan to stay in Bangkok. Look at my thumb! :P Damn hard sell. Hahhaah! FYI I'm not paid for this.


Our luggages size has been double up or mayb triple up from the day we came. Super siao!

Really had a wonderful visit to Bangkok, everything is cheap and good for budget back packer/traveller. :)

2moro gonna be a fun day. Y? *cough* innvo8 *cough* run *cough*

End Of Ayuthaya Visit

Posted by Joshua |





Ok! Back with my Thailand trip.

After the visit at Wat Yai Chaya Mongkol we head for lunch. The restaurant is located next to a beautiful river view with a Church across it.


This wat he had! Yummylicious!

A short video I took.

Lunch Next To River from Joshua on Vimeo.

Then we head to other Wat nearby. The view there is damn breathtaking.


We climbed up to the Wat. The steps are very steep but worthy to climb up becoz....


The view are awesomeness to the max! 


After that we head to another spot that has a very big sleeping buddha.

Shhhh! Dun woke him up.


Next we went to Wat Phu Khao Thong. What so different bout this wat? Me also dun know, just that it's different colour that the other which it's in white.




Here come the cowgirl!

Then we went to another Wat. 

It is Wat Maha Tat, there's a head of a buddha wedged in between a tree roof. For those who wan to take photo together with it, they have to make sure their's head level are lower than the statues to show respect.

After visited so many Wats in one day, only this photo can describe how we feel. 


That's all for Ayuthaya day trip. Next gonna be the finale of my Bangkok, Thailand visit.

Let's INNOV8 run!

Posted by Joshua |

Remember few day ago I posted something bout Samsung Innov8 run



Yesterday I received a mail from Samsung and I got myself in for this Samsung INNOV8 run. Happy Giler lah!


Movies Again!

Posted by Joshua |

Yes! Is movies again!

Last week watched “The House Bunny” the movie is like American’s Pie but with less censored scenes. All I can remember from this movie was chick, chick, chick, and hot sexy bikini. Muakaka!


Not going to elobrate more bout this movie. One word to describe this movie "Funny".

No worry this movie is "U" suitable for all ages.

Rate 8/10.

.......................................................................................................................................................................


Next movie is SmashpOp Bangkok Dangerous.


This movie is about an assassin life and story telling of his rules to keep him alive.

Alot brutal and dreadful scenes like hand cut off, bomb and half body gone. eeeww!

Not much conversation found in this movie. Bored!

Rate 6/10.

.......................................................................................................................................................................


Ok! The final movie I watched is "Thunder Tropic"

I believe most of you already watched the trailer of this movie. From the trailer it is a very hilarious and funny movie but in reality...... it's not.

Actually I realised something, alot Asian people dun like the “just talk joke” as it seem hard to understood for some people. They would prefer some “lame action joke” as it easy to understand, example “You Don’t Mess with The Zohan”

This Thunder Tropic is a kind of "just talk joke" some of the jokes really need time to digest only know what it mean. (mayb I'm too slow or something)



FYI The Downey Jr. is the main actor of The Iron Man. Huh? How come become blacky? You watch the movie then you will know. Hehehe.

Rate 6/10

Yesterday pOp tagged me along to watch High School Musical 3 Premiere at Cineleisure Damansara, together with SzeToo and Jen (she join us about 9pm). Thanks pOp for the ticket!



The movie start at 9.30pm so we jalan jalan cari makan. We went to Vivo for dinner.

This wat I have ordered.

er... the lamb chop so so only.


pOp's long sausages XD

As usual after filling our tummy, camwhore session starts.



Pose abit can?


Ok! Back to movie. This is the 1st time I watch musical movie. The 1st impression of this movie was... Ok! this gonna be like Bollywood movie but with white skin peoples dancing and singing.

I was right but it is way better with awesome songs and dance choreography.

Everytime the stage singing & dancing ended I have the sense to give applause. The choreography really nice and alot efforts have put on each performance.
  


Rate 8/10. Quite nice lor!

Posted by Joshua |

For more info : http://www.nuffnang.com.my/blog/2008/10/21/nuffnang-premiere-screening-madagascar-2/




Sorry didn't update for few days. My office internet got problem and just got it back online. Sigh!, no internet at home really tedious.

Continue with my Bangkok trip. Day 3, we went to Ayuthaya an outskirt area that left a lot historical artifacts of Thailand.

It took about 45 minutes to 1 hour to reach our destination so we obtained a transportation services to bring us there. The cost is about 3500 baht / about RM350 for 7 pax in one big car.

The vehicle they use is……

Hummer H2! Hehehe! Kidding

Below is the car we rented.

Toyota cars can be found anywhere even most of theirs' cabs are Toyota Altis and Camry. Dun play play new model somemore.

When we reached to the destination, my early impression was "am'I in Cambodia?"

The statues, the sculptures, the Wat, look like the one Angkor Wat has.


This Wat is known as Wat Yai Chaya Mongkol. The weather was awesome that day, so I fast fast attach my CPL filter and take a group photo. XD.


There is a big Sleeping Buddha inside the Wat.


The Wat is quite big and a lot buddha statues can be found anywhere.


Wat, Buddha and Dear.

We climbed up and we cam-whore!!!!!!!!!!!


After the tiring walk and visit at Wat, we have our lunch at a beautiful scene next to riverside.
