Well we played it safe and went up to the train station without our luggage to buy the tickets initially in case there was any problems, we wouldn't be sitting up there with all of our luggage waiting for the next train. Good thinking. The train was filled for yesterday and sporatically filled for today. So we're going to stay in bangkok for one more day, yucky, and leave for Chiang Mai on Saturday. Hopefully we go do something interesting today. :)

I have uploaded alot of pictures to my flickr account:

So check them out! Oh and feel free to comment on any blogs I write. Its that little option that says "0 comments" :P

Well gonna head on out for some food! :) The more you eat the better you feel, I think i'll have bugs for every meal! Yucky, jk.



We did soooo much yesterday it was insane. We got up fairly early and went across the street and had some fried rice and fried noodles. Big plate of food, I took pictures but still can't upload them to the internet, and good drinks.. it cost 125 baht. Not bad. We went back to the mall, which I am very much tired of by now and walked around. We bought a wall charger for the ipod 550 baht and i bought a really cute butterfly belt for 220 baht. We then went to a japanese food restaurant and ate a monstrous meal, i also have pictures, for an insane price of 330 baht, the most we have spent on food to date. We then came back and met up with the boys, went back to the mall and rampaged the arcade. They decided they were hungry so they sat down to eat again.. I couldn't fit anything else in my stomach, haha. We walked around and then decided to stop and get some coffee, 40 baht, i had the mocha glacier. Its chocalate chip ice cream scooped into a cup of iced mocha sweet-heavenly stuff... puts frappucino's to shame.

We then decided we wanted to go back to the room and chill. We did that for a little bit and decided we wanted to go out. We went to a road called nana and played some pool. 460 baht for 5 games of pool and 2 pitchers of beer... way too expensive! (for thailand). From there we were just going to get a little snack and call it a night, already had 12 hours of mall time and eating yikes!, but we got sidetracked by our guide and ended up on khao san road. If you have seen the movie ong bak, thats where we were. We took pictures and walked around. Thats when i met Rotiboy. Rotiboy is a thai pastrie/bread thing that is flat and square and stuffed with either egg or banana. It is topped with a milk topping and it is by far the best thing i have ever eaten. Sweet and delicious and oh sooooooo good. 20 baht.

I feel like I did nothing but eat and eat and eat and eat some more all day yesterday. But we leave for chiangmai tonight by train. I was hoping for some beautiful pictures of the scenery but if it is nighttime, I won't get the opportunity. But i will get to sleep and work on my jetlag. Fun times!

So nothing new to report, nothing exciting happened, just good ol fashioned fun.


p.s. 37 baht=1 dollar. :)

Ack yahoo!

Well yahoo is down here so I cannot check my email. :( So I will have to check it some other time, don't know when. We leave for ChiangMai tomorrow by train, so I will take thousands of pictures of the scenery as it passes by. We got batteries for the camera but they are not camera batteries, just regular panasonic so they wear out very fast.

When I get the chance I will upload them to my Flickr account.

Still suffering from jetlag, ran into more rats yesterday because it was raining and the new hotel we are staying at is right next to a construction site. I have found out that the life in bangkok is a constant thing. It never stops. It rained last night, so construction halted for 3 hours, but resumed again at 3 o'clock this morning. Its now 10:30 and it is still going strong. When we got here it was just a few steel beams and four concrete walls.. It is now a two story structure with elaborate twists and turns. I will take a picture to show you what can be accomplished in 4 days of nonstop construction.

Danny has a friend named Mook that is traveling with us to Chiang Mai. She is really really funny and I am looking forward to forcing her to teach me thai for the 10 hours we are on the train. Google a map of Thailand and you will see how far bangkok is from Chiang Mai, just so you can get an idea of how far we are traveling... for 950 baht a person in first class cabins. (27 dollars a person)

Ok well I have 2 minutes and 40 seconds left on my internet card. Missing you all.



We are going to a new hotel today because we met up with our friends and they told us we were paying too much where we were... we were paying 28 dollars.. haha. So now we are staying at a place paying 16 dollars and it has cheaper internet and better air conditioning. I have decided that I brought to much junk with me after lugging it up and down 3 flights of stairs, and now i am about to take it up another 4 flights. D'oh. Its 65 pounds, so i am definitely getting a work out.

All of our electronic goodies are now dead because the voltage in bangkok is not enough to charge them. Luckily we will not be here very much longer. We decided that it is not worth the risk of going to Rayong, the beach town, where our friends had so much trouble (trusting the wrong people, transportation, and not enough tourist police ((those are the police that help make sure farangs/foreigners don't get into trouble legally and physically)) and the likes) So we are going to go back to our original plan, the one i was voicing for the entire time, and we are going to go to chiangmai. Woohoo.

So since i cannot charge my batteries for the camera i can not take any pictures, but the place we are staying at is directly across the street from MBK mall, google it, and even though it is mostly farangs/foreigners that are here it still feels very foreign to me. We were walking down the street the first night we were here and we saw bigggggg rats. Haha it was insane and then to cats started getting into the loudest cat fight EVER and we went to one of the very abundant 7-11's in the area and was greeted by our first lady boy. Very eventful first night.

Jetlag has gotten the best of us. We took a lot of pills to ease the flight over here, i slept through one of the meals offered on the dallas-seoul flight because i was so drugged up, but other than that it was fine. We slept most of the way from seoul-to-bangkok and when we got here we fell into a nice sleep pattern. That is until last night when we were wide awake at 5 in the morning and trying to force ourselves to sleep. haha it was funny. We woke up at 9 and i am just now starting to feel the drowsiness. D'oh. So hopefully we will be fine by the time we make it to chiangmai.

Whew i have spent the last 7 minutes 20 seconds writing this, so i hope that you don't mind if i just copy and paste it into my blog.. haha i'm feeling lazy. Hopefully we will buy some new batteries for the camera today and i can take some pictures. We are buying thai cellphones today, so we will officially be able to be reached other than by email.

I miss you all so very much. Kisses and hugs to kyle and Jen and don't forget to kiss lolly for me, because i know i did when i left. :(

All in all we are very much alive, safe and having fun in humid and heat... kisses everyone in d'town, should have come with me. :P


Saying good bye...

Well I've been hiding out in El Paso for the last 5 days and its now time to say goodbye to everyone.

My mom might try to handcuff me to the banister, but I think I'll be able to make it back to Dallas in time for my flight to bangkok on saturday.

I got to see just about everyone that I needed to see and wanted to see, and I saw a lot of people that I didn't even think I was going to see. And then I saw too much of other people.. all in good fun though.

Everythings all packed up and we're all ready to go.. next blog post will be from good ol' MBK mall in Bangkok, Thailand.



4 days of work left.. woohoo!
This blog is just filler. Hehe
