10 ways to fall asleep on a plane


The easiest way I found to go to sleep was to travel in the same month so there were no new films to watch...

Coffee Beans by Dao - Central World



We just had to go again. This time we had lunch and it was wonderful - I do not know what more I can add to my previous reviews...



The starter with the salad in the coconut cream was wonderful.



Then came the deep fried fish - another wonderful creation.



Then the pièce de résistance - the cakes.



And the coffee was a wonderful accompaniment.



Thank you again for another fabulous lunch.

Street Art in the making


After trying the Bangkok Walk 6 (and failing miserably) getting lost around the enormous intersection  of north Sanamluang I returned to work on the River Taxi.


I was pleased to see some way spraying near Yelo House.


A lot of fun and it does add a splash of colour to a very drab route - what do you think?


Strange how only a week previous to this I saw signs up indicating that the walls were Private Property and not to be painted on... #TIT.





I shall have to return this week to see whether this has been finished.


August - You know you have lived in Thailand when.....



When the motorbike driver hands you a helmet to put on - because that means that there are police doing a check and they are helping you.

After moving to Bangkok I have become aware of things which are now normal to me because I live here – and subsequently a facebook site about this “You Know You've Lived In Thailand when.....” – https://www.facebook.com/groups/YouKnowYouveLivedinThailandwhen/   
so once a month I will contribute to this.
