LIFE IN THAILAND
Today I'm coming to you with something different.
I was looking back at old pictures and realized that I have never really talked about my time in Thailand which is unfortunate because I basically grew up there. Due to my dad's work we move around a lot which is how I ended up in Bangkok,Thailand. I spent six years of my life there, did high-school, university and my first job while I was there. Most of you know that I have moved back home to Abuja, Nigeria already. Although I'm currently spending time In Malabo, Equatorial Guinea as I mentioned here. I thought I'd share a couple shots of Bangkok, to give you guys a feel of what it's like. I hope you enjoy it.
There is an overabundance of food everywhere at all times of the day and night. Prices are cheap as about 60 baht, $2 (400 Naira) can cover a meal.
Khao Pad Gai (Thai Fried Rice), one of my favorite dishes.
Som Tam (Papaya Salad), Khao Man Gai (Barbecued Chicken and Rice), Tom Seap Talay (Sour Seafood Soup)
Sagoo (Tapioca balls) in coconut milk
Thai Dessert (never learnt the name but it was one of my favorites)
Thai Beed Noodles
Preparation of Pad Thai (Fried Noodles)
SHOPPING (MALLS/STREET MARKETS)
Shopping in Thailand is amazing, prices are very affordable and did I mention that most Thai people are super friendly. There is also an excess of malls offering both local and international brands. While they have local street markets which I usually shop in. I noticed that a lot of Choies clothing are sold there as well.
Terminal 21 Asoke
Rajamangala Staduim Street Market (one of my blog picture locations)
Enjoying Cha Yen (thai tea) on the streets after a day at Immigration.
Where I get my earrings and shades.
The transportation system in Thailand makes life so easy, although the traffic is frustrating. There are buses, trains, motorbikes, ferries, taxi's, so much variety.
The Bus Terminal System (BTS)
Inside the BTS
Public Buses for as cheap as 7 baht, $3 (40 Niara)
Thailand is predominantly Buddhist but there are churches. I miss my church and of course the awesome friends I made there.
International Christian Assembly (ICA), New Phetchuburi
I definitely have a lot more pictures to share but this will do for now. I didn't get to travel as much as I would have liked but being on a student budget didn't allow that. I do plan on and visiting one of these days.
By the way, I will definitely be doing a post on my transition from Thailand to Nigeria when I get back, stay tuned!
