It is precisely two months and three days since I left the Philippines. Time passed very quickly and it is just less than a month before I go back home. I think the time is ripe for me to talk about my adventures here in Siam.
Fortunately, I managed to keep myself from being a recluse inside my room. If the opposite was the case then I have nothing to tell you, dear Reader, and this blog will cease being a travel blog. I am glad to announce that I already visited a lot of places in Thailand. I roamed Bangkok and I even went to a remote area in northeast Thailand.
So, here are what you should expect in the coming weeks on my blog:
Church Hunting in Thailand
Since I am a Catholic and an enthusiast of the Catholic heritage, my foremost goal was to visit the churches in Thailand. Another reason for church hunting is that I need to attend the Holy Mass. The church is my refuge especially when I am sad and feeling so homesick.
Churches are rare in Thailand since majority of people are Buddhist. However, Catholicism made a mark in this country and so I can show you many interesting churches, one of which is the cathedral shown on the above photo.
Bangkok is a crossroad of cultures. That's why this city has colorful culture. I already visited some places in the capital city (and I hope to visit other parts of the city in the future). Some are interesting and some may be mundane but they are all part of this wonderful city.
Cooking Like a Noob
I am learning a lot of things here in Thailand. I already learnt how to ride a bike just after two practice sessions without any training wheel nor any help from other people! Another skill that I'm trying to learn is cooking.
Above is the sauteed pork giniling, which is one of the dishes that I cooked that have tolerable taste. Alas! Most of the food that I cooked tasted bad. I eat my badly cooked food as my punishment for being an awful cook.
I will talk about some of my cooking in the coming posts so expect this blog to become a sort of [awful] culinary blog. Aside from my own cooking, I will also talk about the Thai food that I had eaten.
Maybe some of you are good cooks. Please give me idea on what to cook next. I will try to cook it and show you the result. ;-)
Outside of Bangkok
Bangkok is not the only interesting place in Thailand. There are a lot of tourist spots outside of the capital. So far, I already visited an amusement park and a protected forest. Ancient temples were also plentiful in this country of old kingdoms and empires. I haven't visited an ancient temple yet but I am planning to see Ayutthaya, which is a city of old temples.
These are the things that you can expect in the coming posts. So, let me serve as your eyes and I will show you the grit and glamour of Thailand.
