Well anyway… as it is getting closer each day, the more troubled I am. Financially of coz… we’re talking about long time investment here… not born yet already used up a lot of $$$, then trust me, it’ll never stop… $ for this, $ for that!... but i think that’s the way of life.. then it comes to more responsibility.. imagine you have to feed, bath and even wipe the baby’s poo poo… an ugly scene but yet quite an experience… hee hee
Giving born to my 1st child already got us running around and I can’t imagine what the 2nd one will turn us into… full time slaves of them I presume… anyway, for those who are planning on conceiving a child, that’s great but be prepare… $$$$
Oh yes… I still had not figure out a name for my newborn yet… any suggestions?

After unloading all stuff, we head for the pool to refresh ourselves. It was all to ourselves as we are the only one in the whole escape. Oscar had a wonderful time in the pool as all the uncles and aunties are willingly to play with him. It was my 1st time swimming and relaxing myself in the thick forest. We could here birds chirping and bugs buzzing around. Later on we even played mahjong. At about 6.30pm, we ended our game and head back to our house. My friends have started to burn the charcoal. We’re having BBQ for dinner. I quickly went to have a bath to help out. Oh ya.. the bathrooms were open concept. No roof at all. You lift up your head and you’ll see all trees and the sky above. My 1st time taking a bath and doing my “business” in a situation like this. Lets just hope there isn’t any spy cams… hahaha..
Throughout the night we enjoy the BBQ. We got lamb, chicken, fishes, cuttlefish etc etc. Drank beers and chatted the whole night. Then it rains but we continued to savour our food. As it was getting dark, all insects seem to be alive. Since it was raining, the insects came into our place for a shed. Mosquitoes were everywhere. Haha. The noises they make is quite amusing. Hee hee. We later on called it a night and hit the beds. The beds comes with the mosquitoes nets, so no worries.
Next day, woke up at 7++. Prepare breakfast while enjoying the nature. Then we went for a dip again in the pool and played mahjong again. Nothing much can be done there actually but to enjoy the nature. Checked out and went home. A trip to be remembered.

Anyway, since its my 4th day, I came to realize that I don't have the urge like dying as what smokers quiting use to say. To me I think I smoke because I'm used to it. Its like a routine. How strange... But one thing for sure is that my appetite is better. Not that I eat much but more frequently. No wonder ppl says you'll get fat once you quit smoking.
Will I smoke again? Well... not at the meantime as I would like to see how far could I go. Social smoking is hard to say but will do my best. You guys out there don't influence me ok !!!
Now... do I get a present out of this guys?... hee hee... would sure like it in CASH !!!

Anyway, back to myself. Needed much more financial stability. Nowadays, everything has to do with $$$$. Day by day, my wife and I work the shit out of us and still we don’t have much savings. But one thing very strange is that we can save money for travel and entertainment everytime. Hahaha. I think most of you guys agree on this. Maybe we should cut down on entertainment and travel less. No more beers. I wonder how would life be? Anyway, we must sacrifice one or another.I remembered the days where we purchase a jug of beer shared by 5-6 people and we still get drunk. Now even a bottle of whisky won’t do the trick anymore. Come to think of it, we really drank our way till today. See the pictures below:-
This is what we have gone through in the past... there is a lot more...some are even XXX... so dare not post here...hee hee....So guys, Matta Fair is just around the corner, where are we going to for our next trip? Hee hee.

18th July 2007, took airasia flight to Bangkok and within 2 hours, sawasdeekap...touch down... at the terminal, we wanted to take a bus to Khaosan Road where we have made accommodation earlier on but somehow we found out that taking a taxi meter is much cheaper. How strange is that. Reach the location and my gosh, not a bad place. The entire stretch of the road is pack with people from all countries. Plenty of stalls selling from t-shirts, accessories and even tattoos.
We then checked into our budget hotel and it was a clean room for me. The air-conditioned room has 3 single beds, a TV, a fridge and a bathroom. The room costs about 1080 baht (approximately RM108) per night. I’m sharing room with Butt and Ah Pao coz we’re the single ones. After throwing our baggage down, we head for our 1st meal in Bangkok. Food was so so to me but the beers are much cheaper compare to Malaysia. Even cigarettes are cheaper too. Now, that’s life to me… hahaha..
Lunch done and it’s shopping time. I’m actually not a shopper myself but I enjoyed it as there is much to see and bargain for. Oh yes, there’s plenty of massage parlors too ranging from 100 baht to 250 baht. Walk up and down the road and then sat down for some beers. Times flew by quickly as it was already 6pm. Went back to the hotel for a bath as the others went for massage. Later in the night we went to China Town for dinner. KP a friend of mine mentioned that the seafood is cheap here. We settle at a restaurant and order some oysters, shark fins soup and bird nest. The food was ok but we could hardly find the shark fins. The dinner costs us 1600 baht. We then walk along the Chinatown street and could only see restaurants selling the same food.
21st July 2007, woke up early and check out. We then check into a budget hotel called the Mody Dick guesthouse as it was much cheaper. A lot pubs down the road. We then went for a snorkeling trip we had earlier made. Hop onto the boat and drop ourselves into the ocean. The water isn’t clear and the corals are not up to our expectation. We then head to the beach for kayaking. Well at least kayaking was fun. We did flip over and luckily we did not bring our cameras with us. Lunch was provided and it was actually not bad. We enjoyed the food. After that, we played and sun tanned on the beach. At 2pm, time to head back. The rest of the day was usual, walking here and there. After dinner, we had a drink below our budget hotel. Now… this area suddenly lights up with gals everywhere. Each pub had girls standing in front of the entrance asking passerby to enter. Music was loud. We played pool, chit chat, drink and gals watching. After all that we bought some drinks again and drank in our rooms. Oh yes, Vteck, another friend got drunk after a drink. He says that the drink might be spiked. Come on lar. He must have gone out while we're drinking in the room. Anyway, the music was veryloud, but I slept through it. Woke up at 5.30am and the party is still going on. Unbelievable.
22nd July 2007, check out and went to Koh Samui airport to head for Phuket. The airport was nice actually, the restrooms are air-conditioned but not the waiting and lobby area. How strange. Board the flight and within an hour we’re at Phuket airport. Since we had made rooms booking earlier on, we save much time. Now this is the best and most worth it stays of ours. Nice place with plenty of lush greenery and a swimming pool. Rooms were great. It’s called the K-Hotel. Check in and off we go touring the area. Oh yes, the area is called Patong Beach and the famous road is called Bangla Road. Tuk tuk was everywhere so no worries on transport. We walk to the beach and the scenery was nice. One thing is that Phuket has more Asian tourist then the other 2 stops we made. More shopping can be done here. There is also plenty of massage parlors here too. But the price is a bit higher compare to Bangkok. There are a lot of local people promoting the Muay Thay or so called the Thai Boxing. Wanted to go but after knowing the price, I gave up. It cost at least 1000 baht per ticket. Later in the night, it rains till late. We slept. 23rd July 2007, last day of the trip. We bought souveniers and relax ourselves the whole day. Went for massage too. Grab a couple of beers, went for a dip in the swimming pool.. what a life… since it was the last day, we decided to have a great dinner… we went to a fine dining restaurant for western food. Ordered some cocktails and enjoyed the nite till…kaboom… it rains again... not letting it interfere with our last night, we had a stroll under the rain.. hahaha… head back to the hotel and drank Shoju brought by a friend of mine Stella. Drank all and wanted more. Went to 7-11 to get more beers. Now the night is getting busy. A lot of ppl along the streets. Head back to hotel and drink more beers. After all those drinking, we went for a stroll on the famous Bangla road where it houses all pubs. Whoa… pretty faces here and there and yes…. there is also a lot of lady boys… at about 3am, we head back to catch some sleep. 24th July 2007, woke up unwillingly but it is the last few hours in Thailand. Pack our stuffs and off we go to the airport. Reach LCCT at 3.45pm.
Well.. There goes our trip in Thailand. Overall it was good but mainly on shopping, nite life, beers and sun. I prefer Khaosan road and then Phuket more to Koh Samui. We did not go to any tourist attraction this time. Maybe one day we’ll head back….
Next trip? Myammar? Vietnam? Bali?
