I still remembered the first chapter of my form 1 history textbook. Long ago, the Malay Peninsular was known as Suvarnabhumi, or translated to English from Sanskrit would mean "The Gold Peninsular".

21st October 2014 - This is Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. The airport that looked like a garden as there were mini gardens with colourful and fresh orchids, and a museum for the gigantic statues all over the place.

just arrived

A praying room for Muslims is available in the airport so it is very convenient for Muslim travellers. 

Unfortunately I could not find halal food at the food court so we had to settle for the mango with sticky rice and sandwiches. There was actually a Muslim restaurant somewhere selling briyani - I saw a poster about in the praying room after we had finished eating.

Our flight was delayed for 1 1/2 hours but a comfortable airport could ease the stress a bit, at least. However, credit should be given for the extra effort in making the place very Siamese, with all the fresh flowers and really big statues which had already become the attractions to the visitors, locals and foreigners alike.

The event was held at Desa Skudai Commnity Hall. It was the wedding reception of Miss Nurafezah Saidina from SPM batch 2007. As usual, I bumped into many ex-students inside and outside the hall.

Congratulations to the bride and groom, Nurafezah and Khairul Anuar, and may you both be blessed and live happily together.


The next invitation came from Dr.Shafiq Shahmi Mat Rebi from SPM batch 2004 who was having the "aqiqah" event for his first child. It was done at his parents' home in Taman Sri Pulai. To my excitement, I met more ex-students there too.

Congratulations to Dr. Shafiq Shahmi and the wife (as well as to his parents who are no strangers to me) on the arrival of the new person. Hope to see you again in the clinic, Doc. :)

21 October 2014 ~ This was another must-visit spot in Bangkok. Originally it was a foreigner's house but many years after he went missing in Cameron Highlands, it is now converted into some sort of a museum. Jim Thompson was an architect from the USA who fell in love in Bangkok and decided to stay there. People visit this place because of the beautiful architecture of the traditional Thai houses and also the art collections that are put in display for people to admire.

CLICK ON THE PHOTO to enlarge and you could read the story of Jim Thompson on the brochure. I am too lazy to retype the whole thing.

There guide who spoke English took our group for a tour around the house. Nevertheless, photography was strictly prohibited inside the house. I could even see the male security eyeing the visitors suspiciously in fear that someone would intentionally (or accidentally) snap photos.

I now have made up my mind about the kind of house I will build when I become very rich. It will definitely be a tropical house made of teak and surrounded by lush and green garden with ponds and waterfalls. Dream on... 

I should have taken more photos after the tour but there was a heavy downpour,and at the same time we had to get back to the hotel, check out and rush to the airport.

Basically the visit to Jim Thompson's house concluded our stay in Bangkok. I would not hesitate to return to the city again as there are still a lot that I have not explored and seen. Travelling solo will never be a problem in Bangkok, unless there are other people who want to tag along.
