We had 5 hours to explore the city of Bangkok.  Such a short time to go visit the places that makes this crazy city fun.  According to Chon, our tour guide, “Bangkok” (the name) is already obsolete.  The locals stopped using it for 60 years now.  Today, Bangkok is known to locals as “Krung Thep“… … Continue reading

The Tara, Ko Samui

When you say “dampa”, locals would automatically think of the one at Macapagal Avenue. Until recently I’ve been hearing some … Continue reading
