Jane on the go!

Next month will be my busy month traveling for me! I have plans to go to China for 4 days and then go to Singapore for 3 days... and then I will be back home really broke!

I'm still planning for my Singapore trip, anyone has suggestion for me? Which hotel should I stay (budget less than 100 $US)? Which area should I stay? Which food or restaurant should I try? -- I'm sure PY would be the best source for this!!!

Just a quick update! I'm at work now... gotta get back to work! sigh...

What happened to me in the past week

There many things happened to me in the past week, I can't believe it! I will start with rough detail on my trip on Thursday 16th.

My boss and I made a road trip to the north of Thailand to Phitsanulok to cover a story there, we stayed there for 3 nights and then we went to Loei, visiting a vineyard and then drove to Udonthani, slept there 1 night before heading to Nongkhai, Thai-Laos border. We left the car in Thailand and crossed to Laos, took the plane to Xiengkhoung for another story. 2 nights in Xiengkhoung, we flew back to Vientiane and crossed back to Thailand. My boss drove to Khonkaen that night and we stayed in Khonkaen 1 night before heading back to Bangkok on Thursday 23rd. We arrived Bangkok around noon... It's 1,600 km we drove during this trip.

My mom got 3 new kittens as they were dumped in front of our house. There were 5 of them actually, 1 mother and 4 little kitties but the mother brought one kitty with her to another house and never come back for the rest. So my mom took them inside as the dogs on the street attacking them. One kitty got her leg broken because the dogs attacking her. Our veterinarian said she will be ok and will be able to walk within 1 month. We haven't named them yet... I will show you photos of them next time I go home.

I passed out...fainted... on the cross over bridge in the middle of Bangkok after I donated my blood. I didn't know what happened with me but luckily I was with my 2 friends, Ying and Auey. They told me I fainted and fell on the floor. I remember I was about to black out, I saw my friends walking in front of me but I had no voice to call them, I grabbed the bridge bars... that's the last thing I know. My friends told me they turned to me to see why I wasn't walking with them and they saw me about to fall... They were able to catch me before I hit the floor, but they couldn't lift me up as my body was harden. There was a guy walking by, he helped lifting me up to the shade where another woman gave me smelling salt to wake me up. My friends told me I fainted twice... well... I didn't know anything. I guess I should stop donating my blood for awhile until I'm stronger or healthier.

Now it's almost noon time and I'm hungry. I should go...

Miss you all....

Sorry for being absent for awhile. I'm now on the road trip for work! We drove from Bangkok on Thursday afternoon to Phitsanulok, stayed there 3 nights and today we drove from Phitsanulok to Loei to visit the biggest vineyard in Thailand.

Pet (fish) shop

The other day (I don't remember what day!), I went to Thonglor Sky train station and I saw this man at the corner of the street. He was selling fishes and turtles and some water plants.

Isn't that cool?

Here in Thailand, you can buy your pet at any street corner!

As you're on the way to the pub, walking on the street, thinking 'Let's have some beers tonight' and then! Oh! Turtle! How lovely! Let me get one turtle before going for some beers!

Yes....You can.

Sagano ramen

Last week Lin and I went to a ramen place here in Soi Thonglor because I told her many days ago that I really wanted to have ramen!!! and I just tried a new ramen shop near my house, they just open 1 day before! I wasn't impressed with that ramen shop at all and I kept thinking I need very good ramen... ramen... please...I need ramen! *I think it's a part of PMS*

So Lin suggested me this restaurant in Soi Thonglor 13 where there are many Japanese restaurants in this street, it's called "nihonmura" or Japanese village. I will try other restaurants and will tell you about them later!

Today as I told you earlier, we came with one thing in mind... "Ramen", I did some research about good ramen shops in Bangkok and there are 2 famous one which are Ramentei and Yamagoya ramen. Yamagoya is actually located in nihonmura too (to be more specific, it is right next to the shop I had my ramen!!) and I wanted to try but Lin told me to try "Sagano" because they serve more choices of ramen soup.

Walked into shop, the waitress came to us and said the tables were full, and we had to wait for while. Ok... no problem, and we waited.

I didn't know how long we had waited as I was busy talking with Lin and also deleting contacts from my sim card at the same time... we got a big table!

I had a hard time making decision on the soup... there are 4 choices... I wanted to try the white soup but it will come with special portion and a little more expensive, so I decided to have miso chashu ramen.... hmmm.... a little bit too salty for me but what I care most is the ramen...the noodle! and their noodle was good!

We ordered some more things... Lin didn't have breakfast, so she was a little hungry. She ordered salad and gyoza for share and a cold ramen for herself. Look like dessert to me!!! I don't know what it's called... but I don't need to know cuz I am royalty to hot ramen with nice soup, well I can say for me... chashu ramen only!!!

Finished the ramen... I was happy... Having good food really makes me think how lucky I am to be in this world... or how lucky I am to be in Thailand... there are so many good food here... and not too expensive. I love being in Thailand... love it!

So... what should I have for breakfast tomorrow?!?

My favourite Killing time games!

"Have you ever felt so bored?"

I guess the answer is "Yes!"

"What do you do when you're bored?"

I guess there are many answers...

For me... I like to do many things depending on my mood...

Sleeping <--- Yeah... so what? I'm bored...and I don't want to do anything! So I sleep! My favourite thing to do when I'm bored...

Watching TV <--- Sometimes it makes me bored even more as there is nothing interesting on TV

Reading <--- Anything that I can, newspaper, menu, dictionary, advertising billboard, food tag, brochure...anything

Playing game <--- I have a Game boy advance, game boy micro and PC games... That's what I'm going to tell you today! My favourite games!

I will tell only PC games as I have 296 IN 1 for my Game boy... but I only play a few of them! I'm an old fashioned, still play Tetris, Super Mario, Dr. Mario, Ninja Kage, Ice climber, Battle City, Bomber man and B-Wings.

My favourite PC games...

My first game on PC that kept me up all night... I still remember that time.... I was using my brother's PC as we shared a studio room in an apartment. I was a freshman in university. That time I was playing from a diskette..boot from drive A:, it was a yellow diskette! I loved it!

-- Love it! I still have it here on my PC! I play it sometimes when I'm really bored!

Around the same time that I'd got SimFarm, I got another game which is similar to SimFarm... well... you probably know what kind of games I like! as it's the same concept!!! This one I was really addicted to! I played it all day and all night! And yes.. I just installed it on my PC!!! and I can't stop playing it!!!

Transport Tycoon -- I always choose the color scheme 'light blue' and build my HQ in the biggest city!

This game I know through my roommate, Ying. We shared the room when we were in senior year in university. She brought her PC in and we all shared that PC for school work and also entertainment. That's how she introduced me to her favourite game which became mine as well.

Starcraft -- I liked playing as Zerg, it's an alien empire... I don't like playing as a human. It's not so fun! Being an alien that destroys human is a lot more fun! Don't you think so?

When I worked for MTV Thailand, I worked from 10 am. to 7 pm. but I always did a carpool with my colleagues and we normally went back home around 9-10 p.m. when the live programs are over. What did I do while waiting? Playing games! There were 2 favourite games that I played at MTV, sometimes my boss came to see why I looked so serious staring at the monitor which I didn't do when I was working.

1. Heroes of Might and Magic III -- I only had HOMM 3 at that time... I wished I could play multiplayer mode but with a pirate one, I couldn't.

2. Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom -- Another friend also named Ying introduced me to this game, she is the queen of this kind of strategy game. I know Pharaoh, Caesar and this game from her. I used to stay overnight in her apartment and played the game on her PC all night until sunrise! That's how addicted I was to this game.

The last game for today is the most recent favourite game of mine, I am not good enough in this game yet but I will improve my skills... I will...I promise! I got this one on DVD, the quality is very good. I upgraded my video card for my PC because I wanted to play 3D games... and this game is the reason I did that!

City Life -- More options than SimCity, nicer graphic but I'm still learning how to make my city growing and running my city smoothly and wealthy.

Oh........ I'm bored now! Really bored! That means it's time to do something! Playing a game!!!!! I gotta go now.... I have to harvest my strawberries and sell off my fat cows!!!

My Cbox has been blocked...

Sorry guys...if you left any messages on my cbox on the side, and wondering why I didn't reply you or say anything back to you. Please know that it's because cbox website has been blocked here in Thailand by ICT ministry since last Thursday. I don't know the reason why they shut down this website... I actually interviewed the ICT minister on that day in the afternoon about the new cyber crime law bill and the situation of YouTube website, he even told me he and his team have shut down 15 websites more on Saturday...
When I checked my blog in the morning, it was fine... but since I got home and checked my blog's already been blocked!!!

Hmmm..I should have known this! So I could ask the minister why you shut down my cbox!!!! This is not fair!!!!

By the way...if you're in Thailand, you will see this page when you go to or and other 18 websites (the minister told me he's been blocking 20 websites so far)

It's sad, isn't it?

Concrete Thinker

Your IQ score is 113. This means that you are smarter than 81.0% of all other Super IQ test takers.

This number is the result of a scientifically-tested formula based on how many questions you answered correctly on the Tickle Super IQ Test.

Your test results indicate that the way you process information makes you a Concrete Thinker.

You have unusually strong verbal and numerical skills. This dynamic combination gives you an exceptional aptitude for solving equations and then communicating those solutions to others in lay terms. Your intelligence is grounded and based on a very clear interpretation of what is happening around you. Because you are so realistic, most things are crystal clear to you, while others may get confused by this or that.

Your objective is to make things real and clear. People count on you to find and give the sober, cold-hard facts. You learn most easily when things are explained in numbers and words and so you enjoy the education you get through books and lectures. Unlike others, you do not have to experience something first-hand to understand it, nor do you have a lot of interest in how things work mechanically. On the other hand, if you find the information in your books or lectures too abstract, you might tend toward first-hand experience as you'll get nothing but the facts that way.

Here's an example of your Concrete Thinker thinking skills at work in a real-life situation:

You are at a travel agency with a friend contemplating the several different types of vacations you two could take together. The agent gives you the pros and cons of each vacation (including the prices), along with the options you have within each package. All the details, facts, and figures confuse your friend, who asks the agent to just recommend the best one so you two can be done with it and get out of there. But you are able to take out a pen and a piece of paper and write down all of the relevant information. The comparison sheet you create helps you both figure out which is the best choice, and you prevent your friend from feeling overly confused. Thank goodness you think the way you do!

Now that you know about how you process information, let's drill down to see what your specific intellectual strengths are. None of the intellectual abilities is more important than any of the others. And it's your unique scores on each of these scales, that makes you an interesting addition to any group, office, or family.

These intellectual strengths color your world and the way you perceive it, and also allow you to contribute your original perspective when solving problems and coming up with ideas. No one intellectual dimension can define you. It's the original combination of your intellectual strengths that makes you special.

Your top scores are in the areas of Spatial, Mechanical, and Visual. This is a very unusual combination — only 6 in 1,000 people have it. Want more proof? Then pay attention to the percentages of people who scored higher and lower than you on each of the 8 intellectual strengths.

Spatial Ability
You scored 93 out of 100. You use spatial ability to judge the relationship between objects and physical space, like a parked car and the width of the road. It is also what helps you visualize a room when you are decorating or rearranging furniture.

In every-day life, you use this ability when you drive or even when you are walking through a packed crowd (so that you don't run into other people!). Some people actually use this ability to help them with non-physical things. If they are trying to understand a situation, they might think of the words as shapes that they need to negotiate.

Compared with others, your spatial abilities are very high. This means that you have a very strong sense of how things exist in physical space.

Mechanical Ability
You scored 93 out of 100. Mechanical ability is what helps you understand how machines and tools work. Someone with a good amount of mechanical ability probably has an innate understanding of physics. High mechanical skill is also associated with a high degree of precision and practical thinking.

In every-day life, mechanical ability comes in handy when anything in the house breaks, or when you have to purchase something that requires physical assembly. It is also helpful in finding solutions to physical problems, such as determining how to build a pulley to bring water out of a well.

Visual Ability
Your score is 93 out of 100. Visual ability allows you to accurately visualize all aspects of an object for the purposes of recreating it, the way painters do. It's also what you use to imagine a scene from a novel or a story someone tells you — the ability to accurately reproduce reality in the mind's eye.

In every-day life, visual ability is what you use when creating original art. In order to reproduce an object on canvas (as painters do) you have to be able to accurately represent the dimensions of those objects in the picture. Getting the accurate perspective and depth is easiest for someone with a strong visual ability.

Hmmm.... So what??? I don't know anything more from this test!!! I did it because I'm bored and I love taking IQ test. I used to have many IQ test magazine and books when I was a little kid. I think that's why I scored very well... because I know how to do these IQ tests... I've been practicing... The result can't tell much about my IQ anyways.. :-P but at least I had fun!!!

Am I Millionaire Material?

As I'm sure I can't find a millionaire to be my husband after posting the advertising a year ago. Not a single millionaire replied (only my kind and lovely blogger friends did)... how sad!

But I don't care! I can be a millionaire myself, right?? Because the answer to this question is still doubtful, so I took the test to build up my confidence....and....

The result is "You're a Millionaire Material Medium High!"
Ever thought about buying an SUV and joining a tennis club? You should, because you were made for the elite. We can tell that you enjoy many of the finer things in life, but for some reason you just can't make the leap to "millionaire material." Sure, that's a step down from the top of the money pile, but it's probably all for the best. Why? Perhaps because, when it comes down to it, you enjoy fun more than money. Cash is all well and good, and we can tell that you're pretty good at saving your dough when you put your mind to it, but you'd rather spend time outdoors, hang out with friends, or plan your next big trip than drool over your bank balance. After all, what's money for if you can't enjoy it?

Do you want to know that you'll be a millionaire in the future? or even you are one, do you think you deserve to be one?

Try this test: Are You Millionaire Material?

Live music @ Saxophone

Last Friday, Jeremy and I went to a pub called "Saxophone" with some teachers he works with. I don't remember how many people were there but I know it's a lot and I only know a few of them...

Anyway... I like this pub... the live bands are good... (but their mojito wasn't) Here is a moment we had there which I want to share with you. Enjoy!

A Room with a View

This is the evening view from my balcony, I saw the colour of the sky and I told Jeremy about it. So he told me to grab my camera for a snap and this is it!

Do you like it? I love it! If it's daytime, you can see that there is one building that is so purple! I will show you later when we have a good sunny day here!

Sunny Afternoon

And left me in my stately home,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
And I cant sail my yacht,
Hes taken everything Ive got,
All Ive gots this sunny afternoon.

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.
I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime

My girlfriends run off with my car,
And gone back to her ma and pa,
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
Now Im sitting here,
Sipping at my ice cold beer,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

Help me, help me, help me sail away,
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay.
cause I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
In the summertime
In the summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.

And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

Polluted Maptaphut

As some of you may remember that I used to work for Greenpeace SE Asia for about 2 months. During the time I was working there, I had a chance to visit a place called "Map Ta Phut", an industrial estate in Rayong province.

"In 2003 Greenpeace took samples of wastewater from Vinythai and Thai Plastic & Chemicals at their point of discharge to the canal in Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate as well as sediment from the canal. The results show contamination of a range of highly toxic and carcinogenic substances."

I have some photos to show you.... I took these photos when I was there to do research on how many people effected from the pollution.

And not only human...who is suffering from the pollution, this little dog too!

Jeremy in Wonderland!

This is the photo I shot when Jeremy showed me around his ex-school, Tub Keaw kindergarten. It's the first time I ever seen and even known that there is special size of lavatory for kids! These little toilets are so cute!!! *Well if they're cleaner!*

I just want to show you how small they are... compare to the teacher Jeremy! hehehe... He looks like a giant in this small world!

P.S. Just wondering, can you do your "business" in there if your friends are sitting next to you???

Then I just had an idea! I should blog! but what should I blog about? FOOD!!! That's the only thing I can think about when I'm bored.....

Now I will present my 5 favourite raw foods! Why raw? I don't know but it's good when it's raw! *The list is not rated, I can't judge which one is better than the others!*

Here is dish one! Parma ham & melon!

And followed by salad! I'm not a big fan of vegetables but sometimes my body needs something green!

Raw is healthy, huh? Raw fish is even healthier!

People think it looks nasty and it tastes nasty, I first tried it about 2 years ago and I loved it!! I love it!! I love this nasty food!!

Okay...Are you full? I hope not. This is the last dish for today... want some snack? Here it is!

Now I think you have some idea for your weekend huh? It's easy... no need to cook! because we eat it RAW!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to ME...
Happy Birthday to ME...
Happy Birthday..happy birthday...!

10,592 days I have lived... I don't know how many have left but I know one thing, I will do whatever that makes me happy.

254,208 hours I have spent...geez... I think I've slept more than half of that!!! I should get up earlier and do something! I need to get my ass up...start from TODAY! Well...It's my birthday, getting up a bit late is ok. Let's try tomorrow then... hehehe

15,252,480 minutes roughly so far... mmmmm... too many numbers give me headache... Just don't think about it... It's the past anyway.

the more number I've got means I'm wiser (people said older means wiser!)... so all I want to do is to live like a wise one and a happy one.

Hey! As I'm a little wiser now, I just noticed that nobody gives me any birthday present!!! Please.... It's the only chance for you to give me my 29th Birthday present... Don't miss your chance, do it today!

Kisses... ;-)

5 places I love to dine...

I got tagged!! Oh Yeah!!! by our big brother, simple american... I guess he knows very well how much I love food! and maybe he is planning a trip to Asia just to taste some of our great dishes!

Here is the tag!
The rules are simple:
1. List out your top 5 favourite place to eat at your location.
2. Put down your link below together below the name/nick of the person who tag you and link directly to your post. Please include the state or country you’re from.

Nicole (Sydney, Australia)
velverse (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
Simple American (Sugar Land, Texas, USA)
Jane (Bangkok, Thailand)

3. Tag 5 other people (preferable from other countries/states)

Well... the hardest part is not to find 5 people to tag but it's to pick only 5 places for this tag!
Mmmm...... I'm quite in huge trouble now...

Ok! I decided to tell you my 5 favourite places at this moment only! Bangkok is huge! And there are so many good places to dine at, depends on where I am in Bangkok! But I consider these top 5...if I'm at home where I wanna go eat!

Well... we will start with number#5 -- au bon pain
I know it doesn't sound so Thai to you... and they don't serve Thai food either! What can I say? Sometimes I crave for some western tastes too! Like salad, sandwiches... stuff like that! And I'm a big fan of au bon pain, especially their smoked salmon wasabi sandwich! Oh.....yum

number#4 -- MK Suki restaurant

Thai suki restaurant.. Like hotpot but what I like most about MK is their roasted duck! It's so good! Oi...drooling just think of it! Oh not only hotpot, suki and roasted duck, they have very good dim sum too!

number#3 -- Rooster restaurant (ไก่โต้ง)
It's not far from my house...actually it's walkable distance. They serve Thai-Isaan food.. like those somtum I showed you before. They make really good food and not expensive too! I always recommend this restaurant to my friends and also brought them there myself. I welcomed Jeremy on his first day in Thailand at this restaurant too! You can order anything on their menu! Guaranteed!

number#2 -- Kuroda
A Japanese buffet restaurant for 399 baht... and all you can eat! You can order form menu and they will just cook for you. That's why I like this restaurant... fresh and newly cooked! And I'm sure you've heard of it from my blog before!!!
*Here is me holding Kuroda's menu, ready to order!*

and number#1 -- My home!
No kidding! There is no place like home! and my mom is one of the great cooks! You don't believe me? Well... come here and I will invite you to our dinner feast and you will love my mom and of course her food too!
*To confess, I can't think of any place better than my house! I can eat here everyday and every meal... and when I taste good food in a restaurant, I always say "This is just like mama's cooking! delicious!"

And 5 people to tag?
Well... my rule is NOT tag anyone! Love to do, do it! and leave a note telling me you did and I will definitely read it!

The story from the south

I'm not sure that May and Simple American are still sitting there waiting for my story or not but to not keep them sitting too long, here is the story!

Oh! and another story that I had been helping and working on... about Thailand. Thanks to everyone who gave me answers which some were used in this article. Thanks!!!


WAIT!!! I got tagged!!!

Thursday, March 22, 2007


I forgot to tell that I'm back to and sound!
Hope you're not too worried about me...

Now I gotta go... busy!!!

Monday, March 19, 2007

Hello from the restive south!

I'm here in the South of Thailand... in a hotel in Pattani, I will spend a night here. I flew to Hat yai this morning and drove to Yala province... into the troubled area where there is curfew at night!

I just wanna let you know that I'm fine and safe here... We planned to go back to Bangkok this evening but as we had an unlucky day today that made us behid the schedule, so we couldn't drive back to airport as it's too late and too dangerous to be on the road after 5 pm., and that's the reason why I'm staying here in the hotel.

I haven't reserved the plane ticket yet! I should! Ok! Gotta go!
See you in Bangkok!

Ladies Rule!!!

Last night I went to a "Exclusively for ladies only" bar with friends... It was my first time going to a place like that, it's so interesting... I didn't know it was next to one of my favourite Thai restaurants! Now I know... maybe I should go more often!

I've heard that on Friday night there is a place which is also exclusively for ladies near my house, maybe that's the reason why the pub I went last night was a bit empty. I had only one rum&coke... (do not dare to order other cocktails as my friend got too sour margarita!)

Asking myself as I'm not a lesbian, going to a lesbian bar is quite interesting. I felt safe there though...and to find the restroom was so easy, no chance to walk into a men's room! (by mistake or intention).

When we left the place around 9 pm., I saw many ladies in the pub... maybe next time I should go a little late... I want to see the pub that's full of ladies only! And wanna see how they have fun in this kind of place!

'til then...

Thank you Jeremy

Today I got a dozen of roses from Jeremy. It's a delayed Valentine's gift as I was not in Bangkok that day... (It's too expensive to get the rose on Valentine's too!)

I put those roses in our drinking glass... no vase in this house! Thank you Jeremy... The roses actually make this room nicer!

Lunch @ Huahin

On day 2, we drove to Huahin to find another beach to go... we actually did the beach hopping last week! After we got the place to stay, we started looking for food! We found one restaurant not far from our hotel, so we decided to try.... and these are our food!!! Mmmm.... yummy!

Well.... today's post is only about food, so I'm not going to tell you about the beach or anything else. Let's talk about food!!

First dish.. Somtam pu-ma, there is nothing related to Puma... not the animal or the sport wear... but it's spicy papaya salad with sea crab. Oh.... they made it really goooooooood!

Second dish... Somtam Thai, right! we ordered 2 kinds of somtam because we wanted to try the ordinary one which is this one, Thai style somtam and the one with crab (above). It turned out really good...both of them! Ahhh..... ooooohh..... mmmmm

Third dish... Tom saab kra-dook moo, it's spicy soup with cartilage bone (pork). It sounds weird, I don't eat the cartilage...only meat please! But for those who love the cartilage, I recommend this dish, they made really good soup..very spicy too! *sweating*

Fourth dish... Larb gai, spicy chicken salad with roasted rice (crushed). You may wonder now that every dish is spicy... these people are crazy! I can say...YES! We're crazy, we love spicy food!!! and you can see why? Don't they look so good? Delicious?

Last dish... Pla muek tod kra-tiem, deep fried squid with garlic. We loved it! The only reason we loved this dish because the golden chopped garlic.... treasure... Ahhhh... (you don't wanna be close to me when I said Ahhhh.. after having this dish!) Crispy, chewy, a little salty.... yummy!

Cha-am&Hua hin trip (Day 1)

*The main room*
*The Entrance (in the old days)*
*Sleeping Buddha*

Last long weekend, we went on a road trip with P Toy, P Hui to Cha-am and Huahin. On the first day we planned to stay in one resort on the beach in Petchaburi but as we didn't book the room in advance and all of them were full!!!! Can you believe that? We drove from first beach...all resorts were fully booked, the second beach (about 15 km. from the first one) was also fully booked!!! and we kept searching, looking for any available room... but had no luck!

We ended up on Cha-am beach which was too crowded and that's NOT what we wanted, but we had no choice. We found 2 rooms at a guest house in front of the busiest area of Cha-am beach, the price was a little too expensive but it's long holiday and we didn't book it....and most important we were too tired to search for better. We decided to stay there but the rooms were not available until 9 pm. that night, so we had to hang out on the beach for the whole afternoon. We've got the rooms around 8.30 pm after having such a good and (expensive) seafood dinner!.

I had a bad headache all afternoon and evening, so after I took a shower, I went straight to bed and fell asleep right away....

That's all for day 1, to have more side stories, please wait for Jeremy to write more on his blog! Here I have some photos of the cave we visited before going to the beach as it's on our way to the beach.

Mama got her purse snatched!!!!!

This morning while I was still in bed..around 6 o'clock in the morning... Mama came to my room, knocking on the dooring and said "Jane! Help me! my purse was snatched!"

I was awake at that time actually as I just sent farewell to Jeremy who wakes up at 5.30 for work everyday. My first thought was 'I've heard of this story before! Jeremy's friend warned us about this last week saying that her friend who lives in our neighborhood got her bag snatched when she walked out on the street early in the morning! But I wasn't really worried as I never got up before 8 am!!! This wouldn't happen to me I thought-- I forgot, I should warn Mama.......'

She came into my room, gave me the telephone number of nearest police station she got from the motorbike taxi friend, and asked me to call this number for her. She was in shocked... all she had in hand was this little piece of paper and the handle of her purse (without the purse of course).

I called the police and they asked me several questions that I couldn't answer, so I let them talk to Mama.... I walked back to my room.... turned on the light... sat down on my bed... couldn't think of anything.

After awhile Mama came in and gave me my phone back, she said "Police will come to our house... I will wait for them downstairs." and she left.

I lied down on my bed... still couldn't think... I heard our dog barking...that means the police had arrived. I decided to go back to sleep...

Oh! I forgot to ask her one important thing!!!

I ran down to Mama...calling her.... when I found her I asked "Did you lose your ATM card?" she said "No, I didn't bring it. I had about 300 baht in my purse."
"What about mobile phone? where is it?" I asked again
"Mobile phone is here, at home... I didn't bring it either." she replied.

Ok then... there is nothing I have to do, now it's the police to find this snatching gang. I've heard that this is 3rd case that happened in my neighborhood... and the police assumed that they are the same group!

I'm glad Mama didn't get hurt... so please... Beware!
