The Miscellaneous Memories of Bangkok

There are something intriguing enough in these images of Bangkok that I have to share them but could not fit somewhere in a particular theme. Therefore I pile them up here. It is quite surreal looking at some of them. Enjoy!

Mochit 2 Revisit

Back to Thailand trip months ago, I and Stilgherrian had a day trip to Rayong for lunch with my parents. It was Stil’s only day outside the Greater Bangkok. We decided not to commission a taxi and take a much cheaper bus. Therefore I got a chance to be back at Mochit 2, the largest bus terminal in the city.

The Lost Three Gems in the City of Gods

In the reference of Buddhism’s three jewels (Triratna-ไตรรัตน์) including Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, Thais are still deeply in following the way of Buddhism life. This is just my alternative views of the practice in Bangkok.
