Thailand: Going on vacation

By on 09.08.12

I’m going to Thailand in two days, yay 😀 I just came home from a vaccination and my arm feels numb for two hours already. I wanted to make cookies but it is very uncomfortable to squeeze my hand right now.. Hopefully later this day.

I’m looking forward to eat and shop. This will be my fifth time going to Thailand and will be going with my parents. We will stay in Bangkok and Jomtiem (next to Pattaya).

Jomtiem is for beach, relaxation, eating and some shopping. Bangkok is to shop! I will of course visit Chinatown, here you can find bulk items for really cheap. Years ago I bought 72 pencils in a cup for €2. So I will be buying more stationary stuff, craft supplies and maybe some accessories. Nikon camera stuff is often cheaper in Thailand too, as their factory is placed there. I want a new lens so I will visit Pan Tip, super big tech mall, on the first day I think.

Next to pad thai and curry there’s a lot of good Japanese food in Thailand. I will enjoy that a lot, there’s also a robot waiter restaurant somewhere which I want to visit and of course I can not wait to eat sweet juicy mango with sticky rice. omnomnomnom and noodles and satays and and and … OMG

As I am writing this I think I should lose weight in advance to fit in my clothes there, but it may be to late already to do that. Haha. And my arm is numb.

Will try to update when I’m there!
