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.

Sydney Chinese New Year Parade 2008

Sydney Chinese New Year Parade 2008

Another the City of Sydney’s selling point of parties is Chinese New Year Festival, the largest outside Asia, they claim. Although the city does not have to try hard to reflect its multiculturalism, Chinese New Year Festival, which runs 1-24 February, is the biggest push to showcase the vibrant cultures of ethnic minorities. The parade is full of colourful oriental glitz and glamour and noisy drumbeat without firecrackers because of safety issues. The crowd is loving it. The streets are cleared almost immediately as if it never happened. Welcome to Chinese year of the rat, Sydney style.
