Last day of 2009!
Semi babysitting day. Mee wanted to take her son to Dream World which is the largest amusement park in Thailand, I think. BUT do not let that statement fool you!
To picture Dream World, think Disneyland, but 10x smaller, 20x more crowded, and 30 degrees warmer.
Yup, that’s about it for this giant theme park. Pretty much hell on earth. A perfect place for kids! *lol*

Thai body massage could be seriously painful.

If you’re curious, I didn’t gain weight during this trip. Surprisingly enough, I actually lost a few pounds, even with all these crazy food consumptions. lol It’s a magic of walking and sweating, I’m telling you~ ;)

I’d been wanted to go to sunflower fields for the longest time, but I could never fit it into my schedule when I went back to Thailand, either it’s not a sunflower season, or I had other travel plans.
This year, during one of the Facebook message-bombarding-session before my trip back home, I mentioned that I wanted to go to Ayutthaya. One of my friends, pEmm (pee’ emm ~ pee = older brother/sister/friend) took on that request and sent me a list of places to choose from. I saw SUNFLOWER FIELD on the list and I practically bounced! A little bugging and begging later, my other friend, pPle (pee’ (ap)ple) decided to also come along on this day trip, and YAY I’m going to Disneyland!! sunflower field!!
I couldn’t thank pEmm and pPle enough as they both also had to take a day off since Christmas was so not a public holiday in Thailand~

An annual trip for the Four Gangsters.
A-san, I-san, T-chan and I got together again for a hilariously gossiping trip. The girls sure had tons of news to update me during these 3 fun-filled days.
When we were picking out locations for our trip, SuanPhueng came up as a strong candidate because of Candle in the Winter festival. We kinda thought, oh, it must be really pretty, let’s go! LOL
SuanPhueng (suan = garden/farm, phueng = bee, so SuanPhueng = bee garden/farm – nope, there’s no bee flying around as far as I could tell~) is a small town in Ratchaburi (racha = the king, buri = city/town, Ratchaburi = city of the king. I believe we actually pronounced it ‘rach-boo-ree’ not ‘rat-cha-boo-ree’ but I might be wrong..) province on the western part of Thailand. In the past Ratchaburi was really prosperous as a well-diversified frontier (Thai/Myanmar border).
