My Bangkok Trip

When I was in Bangkok, I saw some funny scenes… For the first night, I went MPK Complex for some window shopping and dinner by Taxi. In Malaysia, Taxis are mostly Proton Wira… But in Bangkok, majority of the Taxis are Toyota! Guess what? It’s colourful Altis!! There are pink, orange, green, purple, blue, red, yellow and etc. Walau… Their Taxi is nicer then my car… So sad…

When I reached the complex, I saw a few security guards or policemen were standing in front of the door… Security guards should look after the complex. But guess what are they doing? READING NEWSPAPER!!! This is the very first time I see the guards holding a newspaper and read while they are on duty! *Salute*

The second day I joined a tour to Bangkok most famous place – The Grand Palace (Wat Phra Kheo). The tour was full with Ang Mohs… My mum and I was the only “non-blonde” in the trip. Anyway, it doesn’t matter coz all of us speak English. =p

When we reached Grand Palace, there were also security guards/ policemen on duty… Guess what? Both of them were enjoying their breakfast!! One of them was squatting on the ground, while the other one was standing. I’m really saluting them… Why not they eat before come for duty??

Grand Palace was a nice place… I took quite a number of pictures there… Here are some of the pictures...

This is one of the temples...

This picture below is their Library... But its not open for public.

This is the palace for dunno which King... The design of the palace is a combination of Thai and European Style. Very nice!!

*Cheers*

hey, u knw ah, i was wondering right, issit that the foreigners want to go and have a look at the palace or....everything is in the package and they have no choice.
They might be thinking, "why did they bring us to this place? there's nothing interesting here."
