Bangkok in October

Hi Xander!

Haven’t written anything for more than 1 month! Wah so lazy leh… Well, your daddy and I were in Bangkok from 15 to 20 Oct. We walked, we shopped, we ate and we had fun. “We” meaning your daddy, your mummy and of course, you. Altogether as a family for the 1st time ๐Ÿ™‚ You were such a good boy too. You just went along with us in Bangkok with absolutely no fuss.

I hate to admit this but I literally went crazy in Bangkok. Lau sai and still walked around non-stop. “It’s ok! No need to stop. I’m ok to walk some more lah. Let’s go to the next shop! So many to cover, so little time!” Mad ah. I walked until both inner ankles disappeared and didn’t reappear until about 2 days later.

DarYee and Uncle Fan were also in BKK so we met them twice, hung around for a while, had even had street side seafood with DarYee just outside their hotel at Lumphinee. Fan was stuck at the hotel because he wasn’t feeling well. Dinner was REALLY good! Despite Ah Ma and Dr Wong’s strict instructions againest eating street food, we had gigantic prawns, super salted grilled fish, cockles, some veggies, etc… *SLURP!* It was all good ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE BANGKOK! We will definately bring you along when you are a little older ๐Ÿ™‚

Things were a little tensed in Thailand with the protesters and political mayhem that everyone were not too thrilled with our plans to visit Thailand in my condition. “What if got bomb?”… “What if you give birth on the plane?”… “Are you sure?”… Aiyah, it’s ok la. Thai protesters are not as violent as the media makes them out to be la. We came back safe and sound + you didn’t end up as a Thai citizen right?

Typical Singaporean paranoia of the unknown…
