Common scene in Bangkok

One of the things that I noticed about Thailand is the amount of electrical wires everywhere. Hanging overhead, some buzzing with that electrical sound and some low hanging ones. One needs to watch out when crossing a pedestrian bridge or your head might get caught in the web of cables! 

And the people repairing these cables are probably endangering themselves to do so, balancing their ladders on the poles and sometimes on a bunch of cables themselves. Hope they have insurance. 

It just made me feel more grateful for the small things we take for granted in KL. You don't see this scene very often anymore.

Review of 2012

Another year has come n gone (and a little bit more). What have I done last year? Not much really...

Achievements in 2012:

Travelled to 6 countries, including 3 new ones!

Includes Dhaka Bangladesh, Kupang Indonesia, Bali Indonesia, Seoul South Korea, Mauritius, Khon Kaen Thailand, Science City Philippines, Melbourne and Sydney Australia, Dubai UAE - places includes both for work and for leisure

Work wise

Work has stabilised a little. At least workload has decreased to something reasonable and is more focused on just one program instead of the multiple ones I was handling back then. I'm now taking it slow and steady.


It's been a while since I really got off my butt. And this year seems to be it. I've joined the hotel gym to use the swimming pool (ok, a bit). I've joined the yoga class at work which is kinda nice, ok I still don't really like yoga but appreciate that it got me off my butt. I've also started some badminton and manage to do a 5k run (ok, I walked - but still!!). It all counts, right?

Started a Masters course

One thing has been bugging me a bit (and some of you out there too) to do more to upgrade myself. Well, opportunity came when I learnt that an online course on animal welfare was available and within my affordability. So, here I am! It's a 3 year course, part time - or so it says.

Finally gotten a smartphone 

Yeah, there are many of you that are amazed I took this long to hop onto the smartphone bandwagon. But here you have it - I got an iPhone around mid last year. And then went all out and got an iPad too! I'm typing this on it right now!

Yeah, so that's my life summed up for last year. Nothing too exciting though. I know it's almost halfway through this year, but lets see what else it brings me. One plan is to actually blog more!!! You out there reading this, do take time to leave a comment or two so I know you're reading this and I might feel more motivated to blog more.

iPhone blogging

Yay! I can blog on my new iPhone thanks to blogger's own free app. Here's a photo to celebrate.

Flowers bought from the flower market at Pak Khlong Talat (opens at night) in Bangkok. This bunch costs 50 Baht ($1.50 USD).

Borobudur, Indonesia

Since my long post have been stuck in my other laptop (weirdly, the program was unable to 'connect to internet') and I'm on the road for the whole week, I though of giving you guys just a little preview of Borobudur, Indonesia which I've visited last year.
