If you’re in Thailand, you must get used to not knowing the place where you are because there’s no romanized letters on the the names of the places but everything’s in Thai. One example was the resort we went to last weekend where my friends call the Free Wifi Resort because their name was in Thai and that’s the only ‘name’ they can read.
I can read a bit of Thai but when I saw how the letters were printed, I was confused whether it’s supposed to be read as Diang Lay or Kiang Lay. And with the help of the staff, we were able to confirm that the name is indeed Kiang Lay and we only found that out during the 2nd day of our stay.
Anyways, the resort was good, it’s cheap and clean and we love the mini garden at the middle where we could hang out.
I missed those times when Hubby and I used to go out for the night at restaurants with live music at the background. It really feels different if you compare listening to live acoustic music with just a CD at the background. I love to hear the eletric guitar, the keyboards and sr300 complementing each other.
Anyways, I think Hubby and I should switch from our afternoon coffee dates to night outs. But first we have to look for someone to take care of our kids during these nights.
My li’l girl is on the way for her 1st practice for the Fililpino Folk dance that they will be performing at the Hat Yai Municipal hall on the 15th of December. It will be her first time to dance a Filipino folk dance and I hope she does it well.
I’m not so informed about the whole program on the 15th but I’m guessing that it has something to do with the upcoming ASEAN. Almost everything here in Thailand has something to do with the ASEAN. Anyways, I’m hoping to see other interesting performances too and I’m sure they will have all those hi tech sound system like m-audio torq xponent advanced dj performance/production system at guitar center .
All the best for my li’l folk dancer! Can’t wait for the 15th!
Whenever we have some hardware needs, we usually go to Homepro to buy them. Then, I never fail to look at all their kitchen display and look at my dream kitchen. Whenever I say ‘dream kitchen’ it basically means just that, a kitchen that I will just really dream of because the price is just too high and I definitely couldn’t afford to have a kitchen like that. But maybe if I save some money, choose cheaper materials and buy kitchen cabinets online from here then I can have decent looking kitchen that’s almost near to my ‘dream kitchen’.
If you come and visit Hat Yai, you might get a little bit shocked to find a lot of security check points at the malls. Before entering the parking lot, one has to show and ID card or driver’s license and car has to be thoroughly checked. When entering the malls, bags will be checked by security guards with or without crown security products . Not just a normal check but sometimes, they will really look inside all the compartments in your bag. It’s a bit annoying sometimes to have a stranger look at your personal items, but well it’s for the safety of everyone.
Anyways, all these tight security checks has started a few years ago after incidents of bombing and bomb threats in the south. But there’s nothing much to worry, it’s still safe to go around Hat Yai.
