Same Same But Different

Music of the night- taken with slow shutter speed at Suvarnabhumi Airport

I've meant to start on a proper post on Bangkok, but work has been so overwhelming I'm finding it hard to even breathe! A little exaggeration but you get what I mean ;) Today's post will be short and simple and hopefully entertains you guys for at least 2 mins. Here are some pictures I took during my Bangkok trip of some things that are common to the Thais but I find it really cute/funny/quirky/out-of-the-ordinary. I've got 3 pictures, so as HB puts it, here's a 3,000 words post :)

What comes into your mind?

While we were walking out from the hotel to the Skytrain station, I came across this sign and it instantly reminded me of our ruling government. Haha I nearly LOL-ed when I saw it! I suppose the Thais are giving us ideas on merging Barisan Nasional with PAS! The new name of the merged party shall therefore be called BAS :)

If my common sense serves me well, I think it's a sign saying "Tempat Menjaja" or translated- Hawker Place (??)

But oh well, whatever it actually means, it's still quite funny right???

Taxis... but in pink!!!

IMHO, Bangkok has the most quirky taxi colors. They come in bright fluorescent pink, red, yellow & green and baby blue. We were told that different color taxis are operated by different companies. Hmmm today good mood, oklah sit pink taxi! Today bad mood- sit red taxi!! The taxis are cheap (ranging about 35 Bahts-100 Bahts or RM 3.50-RM10), clean and most importantly cabbies there use meter unlike in M'sia!

To On the Nut or Not to On the Nut? Spotted this sign at the Skytrain station, "On Nut" is the name of a place. It's similar like our LRT heading to either Klang or Sentul. So if you wanna On the Nut, head this way!
