Sawasdee Kaa!!!

We were in Bangkok recently for my 31st birthday. This is a short post of our transportation which I found absolutely amazing!

We started off trying to hail2 tuk-tuks from our hotel, but only managed to come across one. The tuk-tuk driver very generously offered to take ALL 6 OF US into his tiny 3 wheeled vehicle. So since, he seemed so confident, we hopped on. Anything to save that few bahts right? Every 10 baht saved is another 10 baht for shopping I say.

All 6 of us squeezed into a tuk-tuk for 40 Baht. No mishaps. Everyone survived.

Taxi ride

The tuk-tuk experience made us feel kinda brave. So we did the same stunt with a cab. And again, the driver said ok. So, before he could change his mind, we hopped into the cab. Can’t remember how much we paid for this ride. In case you were counting, Vick was our camera man in the shot sitting in the front seat.

Gotta love Bangkok/Thailand. Amazing!! 

Of course, stay tuned for more posts on the rest of our Bangkok trip.



TGIF!! Here’s a funny post on funny umbrellas!!

Received an email about some funny looking umbrellas which promted me to write this post. I’m not an umbrella person. I’d rather walk in the rain or wait till it stops. Coz I can’t quite figure out how to open or close it from within the car. 😛

Now, this would be PERFECT for me!!

pet umbrella

This umbrella would be purr-fect for my dog. He hates to be out in the rain. All I need now is to get him to wear shoes!! Then he’ll be dry as a bone. No worries of water splattering everywhere!

kids umbrella

I can’t imagine any kid that’d want to use this!!! LOL.!!! Almost like an alien invasion.


Imagine walking in the rain with your love ones. I remember watching black and white movies. Many a love scene was based on two people walking in the rain and this was usually how their love blossomed *butterflies fluttering*, or how they managed to get the courage to declare their love to each other. Walk in rain, must do for every couple.

Have a good weekend everyone!!
