Old Customs House - places to visit in Bangkok

I visited The Old Custom House on 36 Charoen Krung in Bang Rak. Then I read this from a Bangkok Blogger - Richard Barrow - "the firemen and marine police have already moved out. They will start renovations next year to turn it into a hotel. So be quick if you want photos."
But there was another one?

I was searching for some Street Art and I took the wrong road.

There is a wonderful building on the sides of the river.

Tin Toys

I always wondered about these tin toys - 

I presumed that the tins were recycled from somewhere?

What do you think? Or do they drink a lot?

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

Going to work on the river taxi means that you have a paper to put on the plank and a tissue to wipe yourself if you get splashed - I now have 'wet wipes'.

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.


Well I gave up with the magazines on the iPad...

Then I tried a book....

I have officially given up... I love going to book shops - a bit expensive in Australia though.

No more Weddings in Phuket

I received an email from Anna and Tim who had returned after their special day and they had returned with a little girl - Isabelle - wonderful - congratulations.

I recently compiled a video of all the Weddings that I had participated in whilst I was at Cape Panwa Hotel.


Dean and Deluca - coffee in Bangkok

Dean and Deluca are a company very large in Thailand and very popular - they sell more than just coffee but I have not been interested in anything else. But it does alway seem to be busy with mostly professionally dressed people?

On the corner of the roads and there is an outside seating and inside seating.

This cappuccino was (and always is) a pleasure to drink - it was strong and the chocolate was a beautiful accompaniment to go with the coffee.

There was not much of a selection if cakes though - had they all gone? I must return to have a look at what there could be...

# days in November

This is getting a bit over the top - I did agree with doughnut day - but I am not sure with all the rest of them. But what the heck - have some fun...

Halloween was a lot of fun

Halloween is a lot of fun for me and the children.

This year was no exception.

I hope they all slept when they went home
