Interlude – A Spirited Motormouth in BangkokFebruary 21, 2012 | 3,190 views
It was almost blissful. That I left the cold/emotionless cubicle, the piles of work heaped on these strained shoulders, the manic chase for numbers, and the country plagued by impossibly ridiculous stories (the Ms Tow Truck saga being the icing on the cake throughout the hiatus).
And stepped foot on Thailand’s soils, once again.
Pardon the lack of notice. As if you ever needed one in the first place. Some might be heaving a cyclone of a sigh of relief without the constant doses of ramblings these past few days. Others might felt dejected, longing, craving and tantrums being thrown around (ahem, ahem … I can dream, can’t I?!).
If you’re anticipating a tedious, elaborate (or equally ridiculous as the state of our politics?) or well-drawn out story today, I am sorry.
The first day at work after close to a week’s off was detrimental to the spirits. Dejection should be the key word here, while lethargic sets in a very close second.
For tonight, please allow Motormouth the leeway to present you with a mad stream of random shots taken in Bangkok. There’s no theme to this; I am far from a professional photographer.
Heck, I didn’t even know what I wanted to snap aside from FOOD, FOOD and more FOOD.
But I believe that come this weekend, everything will fall back into place. The biological clock will beat in tandem with the routine rhythm, and this battered body of a glutton will be well-rested from the barrage of continuous ingestion.
That is, of course …. the weekend’s spent hibernating instead of setting foot on another food trail.
A bit doubtful, but let’s see if these stories of two very interesting markets in Bangkok (Chatuchak’s out of the picture though) an out-of-the-way Isaan feast and one gourmet burger extravaganza will be drafted out for your reading/drooling pleasure.
For now, feast on these previous Bangkok experiences from 2009.
P/S : I will be flying off to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah tomorrow (for work, not play), followed by Kuantan, Pahang on Friday. If there’s any die-die MUST-try stuff over in those towns, please ….. drop me a comment or a mail here.
