Hello & goodbye.
Im sure each and everyone of us have experienced countless farewells in our life. Some goodbyes are easier than others. Just like the empty seats on an early weekday at Siem Reap International Airport, at one point in our life, we may realize that our friends that have once shared or squeezed the seats with, will have to get up and leave their seats one day. Because everyone leaves eventually. Their time to move forward has arrived.
But question is, am i moving forward? That, is still a mystery.
One of the places that we dropped by for a quick stop, was this place called Pai Memorial Bridge which is located in northern Thailand’s Mae Hong Son Province, near the Myanmar border.
This wooden bridge built during the WWII has no entrance fee, and it’s also a good photography spot for tourists.
Photo was taken using one of my favorite world class camera app – Hipstamatic.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) is one of the biggest shopping mall in the world with 225 retail outlets, 81 lots for food and beverages. Fast foods, rice & noodles, fruit juices, coffee shops, organic foods, light snacks…and the list goes on.
But what if you are feeling unwell on the day, and you aren’t in the mood for any meal with heavy carbs, not even coffee, you want something savoury, and non-fried stuffs instead?
I was hunting for a hot cup of soup to soothe my inflamed throat. After walking around and checking out most of the restaurant’s menus, I finally found a place where they offered soup – DOME Cafe (departure level).
I ordered myself a wild mushroom soup (RM21) . Other available options are broccoli or minestrone soup. All topped with croutons and served with fresh garlic toast.What more can you ask for when you’re feeling sick? Thankful for a warm, comfort and hearty soup.
Now, Im ready to fly.
I love Chiang Mai. It’s been 4 years since I last visited the beautiful city. Itinerary was made months ahead, so we could make full use of our available days, both in Chiang Mai & Pai (a town located in northern Thailand).
Rainforest Boutique Hotel is located about 15mins away from Chiang Mai International Airport, and 3km away from the local waroros market. But fret not, the hotel offers transportation from the airport to their hotel. All you need to do is contact them in advanced to arrange your transportation.
The front desk staffs were all friendly, cleanliness of the rooms were acceptable and air-conditioner was working well (important to regain coolness after a hot day out). If you ever find issues with your room air-conditioner, you can always bring it up to the front desk staffs, and i believe they are more than willing to change a new room for you.
Buffet style breakfast was also included, between early morning until 10am. A mixture of western & thai food was available to choose from. Basic simple food from toast, sunny side up, pancake, bacon to thai style pork & vegetable, soup and some fruits to fill up your tummy in the morning before heading to the town.
Although some parts of the hotel looked a little aged, we were happy with our rustic rainforest style accommodation for the value we paid.
As I was watching my instagram stories earlier, I came across this interesting post about how 156 Americans drew famous brand logos from memory. Big brand logos such as Apple, Adidas, Burger King, 7-Eleven, Starbucks, Ikea, just to name a few.
The results are very interesting & hilarious. Some of these logos look simple at a glance, but when people tell you to actually draw them from memory, that’s when the struggles come in.
Do check out the full post by logoinspirations to see what kind of fun & interesting sketches people came up with!
Those who knows me personally, or those who are my followers are well aware that Im a crazy cat lover. In fact, I strongly agree to this “No cats, no Laife” term.
Meet my beloved cats. Do also check out my hashtag on them (#aileomako)
It’s been ages since I last had a blog or managed a domain. I guess it’s time to restart, recollect and record pieces of my life journey once again.
This was taken in “A Day In Chiang Mai Coffee Brew” – a little cozy coffee shop in Amphoe Muang Chiang Mai, Thailand. Loved the rustic brick wall and the vintage cameras laying around the corner of the cafe.
Stay tune as I will be slowly adding more photos from my recent trip in Thailand.
