i know i know, thinking of what to get your girlfriend, friend, mother, sister, neighbor, cousin or any female creatures in this world can be quite a task. because although we’re not that picky let’s be honest, we do have our preferences when it comes to a lot of things. for instance i personally don’t fancy rose gold so if i were to receive a rose gold accessory as a gift i would very much and from the bottom of my heart appreciate it but will most likely never wear them.
there are two kinds of people in this world – one that has positive and one that has negative attitude towards audio books. sure, there’s a charm in holding and reading (and sniffing) an actual physical book (older the better) but when you’re always hustling and on the move – audible might just be the answer you’re looking for.
i mean it’s no secret i’m border line obsessed with the pineapple tote i sewed up couple of months ago. it’s so thailand-appropriate, light and most importantly sturdy enough to carry tons of stuff inside. when i took on sewing as a hobby i made so many pouches and tote bags that i can now make them with my eyes closed; no but really it’s probably the easiest sewing project and if i can do it so can you!
it’s probably the nosy in me but i’m always curious to find out what people in other parts of the world get up to during their down time. is it cafe-centric as it is in most asian countries? do you spend more time getting out and about? contrary to what many outsiders perceive it to be, life in bangkok can feel rather repetitive and mundane after a while. don’t get me wrong though i absolutely love my life here but once you pass that initial stage of getting excited over a fruit cart on the street, there are only so many places you can go and things you can do. especially when the temperature reaches 40 celcius out getting out of your air-conditioned bedroom is the last thing you want to do.
you simply can’t go back home from thailand without trying out some of the local delicacies the local way now, can you? if you know me in person i probably have already dragged you to this place multiple times. rung rueng has been my favorite noodle shop ever since i stepped foot in thailand about 15 years ago. yes, this family run business goes back a long, long way. often times you’ll find the most unassuming crowd of thai celebrities and well known faces eating next to you or even at the same table. just keep calm and enjoy your meal.
