Bangkok Daybreak

5 Tonnes a Day

Unlike Sydney, Bangkok is not a scenic city. It is impossible to catch the sunrise and absorb a sublime aura of a new day. On the other hand, what makes up for it is the morning vibe that people create. I am familiar with daybreak actions in a suburb when morning market starts and Buddhist monks come out for the ritual of almgiving, meanwhile middle class cars rush to the jam to workplaces and schools.

However, in the heart of the city, just before the traffic begins to get stuck, there are something very intriguing as I found on one early morning on Sukhmvit Road.

Bangkok Express

Taking Express Way is the most convenient route to drive in Bangkok. Like any other way to get around: boat, bus or train, along the high way also tells the story about the city but in a different perspective. While on the bus to Rayong, this is the first quick slide show on one of Bangkok Express Ways network which is the first to be built to solve Bangkok traffic jam, way before BTS and MTRS.

At Night and Lonely

An autumn night in Sydney is not too cold to stroll along the streets, not as cold as the city itself. Not many creatures are active in this hour but the motionless despair. It invisibly creeps out of its cave and relentlessly swallow its preys, alive. There are so many lights but they cannot see way…home. Five steps to break down.

Windows

One: Looking through windows, fuel is burning to light the pantry for no one to eat.

Doors

Two: Many entrances but no access.

Down There

Three: Only one way down.

Wait

Four: Waiting to go back home.

Sweet Lullaby

Five: No where to go just sleeping on the reality.
