Our condominium's pool and the pool decks got refreshed after a couple of years under the Bangkok sun. It took the better part of three weeks to finish the work.
Today is "No Butt Day" in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Brazil.
One day in Bangkok.
Our friends, Dan and Jill, from Taipei recently returned to Shanghai for a visit. They sent us these photographs. This is actually the second batch of photos that they sent relating to their Chinese New Year trip.
I first met Dan in Shanghai back in 1981 or 1982. Over the following 15+ years we (when I was with Jean Marks) got together in either Shanghai or Taipei every year or so. And, last year Dan and Jill visited us (Watcharee and I) here in Bangkok.
I'd like to take Watcharee to Taipei this year. Then she can visit Dan and Jill's home.
Can anyone guess where we had dinner? The 'restaurant' is located in Bangkok but don't be confused by the names. You would never find anything like this in an American counterpart, especially if it is church affiliated.
This is what we ordered and what was delivered to us at this mystery Bangkok 'restaurant'.
OK, you've seen the food displays in the 'restaurant'; you've seen the food close-up. How about the room itself! It is big and comfortable and not at all like something you would find in a similar American institution.
