19 Days Left

We have exactly 19 days left before we leave the city. After living here for 13 years, it’s really so sad to leave.. This city has been a home for us especially for our kids who have lived here all our lives.

Aside from putting in our schedule, meeting the people who we have to meet before we leave, our kids also have a list of places to go before we leave. In the list, they included our newly discovered resto called Homeless .. It’s a bar and restaurant that serves burgers, pasta , steaks and fries. At night they also have a band or acoustic music. Not sure tough if they use Dobro  for their guitars.

Anyways, I will be uploading photos next time as the photos are in my phone. Or better yet, we’ll take better pictures the next time we go. :)

19 Coffee and Bakery House, Hat Yai

19 Coffee We have a new favorite place to hang out for coffee and have our meals. It’s called 19 Coffee and Bakery House. I got to know about this place through their FB page and the location is a bit in the interior part of Phetkasem Road. But to our surprise, it’s also near to our area. It’s a beautiful, quaint shop that makes you feel at home with their friendly staff and cozy interior. Night time is the best time to go their as it’s cooler and the warm lights add charm to the place.

Anyways, though the name of the shop is 19 Coffee and Bakery House, they actually don’t have a lot of choices for coffee ( they do have the basic cappucino, latte and stuff) and they also don’t serve baked goods BUT they serve meals from steak , pasta to rice dishes. They’re food is tasty and the most importantly, very affordable. So, that explains why this has been our new favorite place :)

Entertaining Dubsmash

I can see that the Dubsmash app has been so popular that many of my friends in Facebook has been using it. I actually find the videos fun and entertaining! With the popularity of this app, I’m not so sure if many of these singers will want to use powerlung breatheair.  :) Anyways, I’m looking forward for more dubsmash videos from my friends.

We were there for the opening event and the kids enjoyed their experience. At around 4PM they had crafts and activities for kids and a short opening program.

We were all so excited for the display of the hot air balloons and it took a bit of time for them to set them all up. Unfortunately, they only set up 4 hot air balloons and it was up (though  not even on the air) for only a very short time. We expected that the ballons will be up the whole night and the public will get a chance to get in it. But I’m not sure whether some things came up on why they were in a hurry to keep the balloons.

And since, it was already late and the kids were already hungry, we didn’t wait for the Balloon Night Glow anymore and just decided to go home. Seeing the hot-air balloons ‘live’ was already enough for us.

This event is only until tomorrow, March 7, 2015 at Jiranakorn Stadium. It’s a free event and I heard they also give a chance for people to ride the balloon, not sure though if there’s a fee and for how long.

Anyways, it’s still worth going there if you have the time. Just seeing the big balloons is already an amazing experience._DSC0012 _DSC0034 _DSC0041 _DSC0046
