Hello Bangkok!

It’s embarrassing that the only thing I know about Thailand is Pad Thai.

The first time I tasted Thai food was in 2009 when an officemate tagged me along to Som’s Noodle House, a hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant in the Philippines. Since then I have loved Thai food so much. I could eat Phad Thai everyday!

When an opportunity to fly to Bangkok opened up, I packed my bags instantly. This is just one fourth of the populaton of standby travelers on that day. After 2 flights gone, my husband and I finally got a seat.

The moment I sat down on the plane, I realized I forgot my camera!

It was like a bucket of ice pouring over me. I wanted to jump off the plane and rush home to grab my left-behind. The seat belt light turned on and I sat there paralyzed, crying inside. Ever since I was a kid, I have never gone on a trip without a camera. My life, so far, has been well-documented.

Before I could start my pity party, my husband pointed at my brand new HTC phone he bought for me just the other day. It may not be a proper camera but I’m satisfied I have this rather than nothing at all.

Arriving at Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

The first things I noticed when going out of the airport were the bright and colorful taxis.

The Captain is pretty pulling pink around.

We quickly freshened up and went out for a late night dinner.

Having fun at the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS). Pretending I couldn’t read English…
