Is this the best roadside coffee in Bangkok?




Coffee Three O' is a coffee shop on the side of the road near to where I work. Near to the Vanit Building and the intersection of Witthayu and Phetchaburi Road. Their iced coffee is simply wonderful.



Thank you

Snow balls in the rainy season



As I was walking through the Central Embassy to Cape House I came upon something which made me stop more then once. There were children in a white ball park on the round floor.



Then I looked again - there were deck chairs adjacent to this. Then there was a sign - The Beach...

Update: Now I know what it is
A massive interactive art installation entitled The Beach is now on display until the 18th in Bangkok at Central Embassy in Ploenchit Rd, as part of a celebration to mark the mall’s official “completion”, as well as the opening of the new Park Hyatt Bangkok. The installation, created by Brooklyn design firm Snarkitechture, reimagines a day at the beach by replacing sand with 1 million recyclable plastic balls—and the public is invited to jump right in!

Bangkok Streets on a Monday


You are in Bangkok and you have heard all the positive and negative things about the food on the streets. Are you are going to have some?

Then the markets by the side of the roads? Are you going to buy anything you shouldn't?



Then there is a coffee made by the 'sock' - are you going to have one?



The fragrant flowers that are used to make an offerings in a temple - are you going to get one?

If you answer yes to any of these then beware...



NOT on a Monday - the streets are empty for them to be cleaned...


Visakha Bucha Day (วันวิสาขบูชา)



Visakha Bucha Day (วันวิสาขบูชา) or Wan Pra Yai วันพระใหญ่  marks the three important incidents in the life of Lord Buddha (พระพุทธเจ้า) on the same day – the full moon of the sixth lunar month. The three significant separate events are :
1. The Buddha’s Birth (ประสูติ)
2. The Enlightenment of Buddha (ตรัสรู้) – While sitting under the Bodhi tree, he found his answer and attained the enlightenment at the age of 35 years.
3. The Nibbana (ปรินิพพาน)- The Buddha passed away on Tuesday, the Vesak full moon day in the zodiac year of the small snake under the two Sal trees in the Sala Grove of the Mallas in Kusinara, the capital of the Malla state, (nowadays located in Kusinagara of Uttrarapradesa, India) at the age of eighty years (around 2547 years ago).Wisaka Bucha Day falls every year in the month of May. This year it is Friday, May 20.
Wisaka Bucha Day is regognized as most important memorial day in Buddhism for the Lord Buddha. Wisaka Bucha day is also recognized by the UNESCO in 1999 as “World Heritage Day”. Thailand where is the permanent location of the World Fellowship of Buddhists, was chosen to host celebrating event for the day.

Published on 7 Feb 2017
The Simpsons' predicted The death of Donald Trump. Over the years the simpsons have show their incredible hability to predict the future, we have witnessed creepy episodes that have become true and have certainly passed into history, such as the fall of the twin towers, the appearance of the ebola,
the video calls, the Donald Trump's triumph as preident of the United States of America and this just to mention some predictive episodes.
