We brought an empty bag and a pocket full of luck, yet we starved on the last day. Guess that luck is given for the beginners.
The worst thing might happen when a caged lion come back to the jungle is they forget how to survive.
Thailand has never been on my bucket list of places to visit in southeast Asia, even though I had been given elephant figures or keychains so many times as souvenirs.
Never rushed to visit it, never popped up as the first 'where tos' next semester break, however, it has been there in the back of my mind, making little echo that I must visit this 'oh so near' place.
5 in a group decided to head up to Bangkok on July 20, 2014. With no luggages, just passports, Thailand Baht, cameras on standby, and a bucket full of lucks.
Never thought that Thailand would be such a special place to wake our surveillance up, and to guard ourselves with extra foreign comprehension.
Thailand, precisely, Bangkok, have shown me there are ways to make living, pick yourself up when you are a mess.
That old man lies beneath his smile under red umbrella and red stripped neat shirt, that boat driver bow before we sat on a boat that led nowhere, and the shop cashier jokes.
Yes, there are so many games to play to make life less rocky to be climbed. On the other hand, I want to believe that hospitality from heart still does exist.
However, I am still in admiration towards the culture. Despite of our bad lucks. Countless wasted bucks, mostly.
I must say that Bangkok has penetrated some good toxin to my soul, besides all the bucks spent on Platinum clothes, I learned universal language of vocal tone. This might sound illogical, but you'll get to understand feelings beyond words spoken, safe and danger alerts.
Thank you Bangkok to fill my pin point of Southeast Asia places I've stepped on, to those surprises, to exposed the unexposed, and to make me believe of originality of a culture.
