6th September 1993
This was the day that I was brought into this world and through my 23 years of life here, I had my fair share of ups and downs, happiness and pain. As you can probably tell, I just celebrated my birthday a few days back and man was it one of the best birthdays ever. I went on a trip to Bangkok with my girlfriend for a nice 4 days getaway, got back just in time to celebrate it with my love ones. Although it was just a simple steamboat dinner, but I am just glad that everyone got together that night to celebrate my birthday.
A lot had happened since the last time that I blogged and maybe I could just add a little things to update. I am still working in a bank and as a part time tutor so basically I am working my whole Monday to Sunday. Don’t ask me how do I do this because I have literally no idea how am I doing this myself but one thing is for sure, it is a damn tiring life. My 6 months contract is about to end in around 2 months and I have been trying to find myself a new place to start at. I decided to postpone my studies once again because I don’t want my parents to have that financial burden with me going to university so I figured that I should save up money and earn more while I can during this period and pay for my studies next year.
So that is basically it for what happened recently in my work life. But outside from all the piles of work and stress, I have the people that cares for me and frankly, they are the reason that I am still hanging on every day.
Recently, I got to fly overseas with my girlfriend to Bangkok to enjoy a short trip just before my birthday and it was a blast. We had so much fun travelling around and shopping of course. As a regular to Bangkok, I was able to bring her to places to eat and shop and just having her beside me just made the entire trip a whole lot sweeter. As it has been a long time since she went there, I brought her to the places that everyone should visit when they are there for the first time. From the places like, Chatuchuk Weekend market, Asiatique, Chinatown to the food and the milk teas, everything was just perfect. The hotel that we stayed in for our trip was at Centara Watergate.
Personally, I have stayed in some fantastic hotels and I have got to say that this could be ranked up there with those hotels. The first impression was that it is grand and the cleanliness is top notch. The staff service there is excellent as well as they greeted us with a glass of tea and cold towel each. One thing I did not really like about it would be the location of the hotel as I don’t find it really convenient and near to the town area. But the streets are always lively at night and it is always a good thing if you ever get hungry while heading back to the hotel.
We spent most of our money on food and our meals ranged from 800 baht to 70 baht per meal and I got to mention that the meal at Chinatown was the most satisfying yet. The whole meal cost around 700 baht which includes a tom yum soup, two fresh big ass oysters, some veggies and a big ass fish to cap everything off. It was filling for the both of us and we felt that the price was super worth.
To sum the trip up, it was a very enjoyable getaway with my girlfriend and I am just glad that I have this travelling experience with her. We tasted lots of food and went to places to experience different things and even bought a baby pizza to have on the cab on the way to the airport. We flew back on the day before my birthday so I can be surrounded with my family on my special day.
On my birthday, we had a small gathering where my grandparents visited to have a bbq/steamboat session. The whole table was filled with food prepared by my mum and it was just an awesome dinner. Nice and simple with everyone I love around me. I even got a present, balloon and a very sweet letter written by my special girl who I can’t thank enough of.
So that was basically it! How my story have been and of course I hope for better things to come. And of course lastly, I would like to thank the people who dropped me a message to wish me a happy birthday. I promise to always be appreciative of what I have and aim to become the best version of myself.
That’s a promise to myself
