back in bangkok!

I got back from New Zealand on Saturday night. Suvarnabhumi was a dream! Quickest processing of my passport so far (they normally take some time finding my stamps and visas), quick picking up of the luggage, no scanning of luggage and I was already out.

Strangely, there were no taxi touts and it was extremely quiet in the arrivals hall. My bf smiled from far away and it was lovely to see him again after these weeks. I missed him a lot of course, but he generally struggles more...

I think in a couple, there's always one who struggles a bit more with distance - that's not to say I really missed him of course.

It's just always so nice to see him after a long time because every time I am amazed at how cute he actually is...hehehe.

Since then, I had three lazy days, cooking at home on sunday night, going to university on monday and going to do merit today.

That's something I have never done. Me, the bf and my friend from university (girl) took a taxi to Thewet and bought some fish at the market. Then we went down to the river and freed them...that's as easy as it is.

My friend had two big catfish, which were very lively in the plastic bag and bit holes in them, so they were nearly dead by the time we were at the river.

The bf and I had little snake fish. He picked one up and it was - surprise suprise - slippery! He nearly lost it...We wished that we have a happy and long time together...

Making merit is really big in Thailand right now because tomorrow it is the Queen's birthday. And since the Queen is all of Thailand's mum, they call it "mother's day". There are meant to be fireworks and something like a vigil at 8pm where people light candles. How cute!

But I wont be in the country anymore by then!!!

Tomorrow morning, I will catch a plane to Ubon Ratchathani with fellow blogger Kawadjan. We will go to the south of Laos until monday morning. Lets see what my second Laos trip will deliver.

This time almost certainly no crazy story with waiters. Kawadjan and me will probably numerically double the gay scene in these little towns and on the islands. Lets see how they take our "faggotry" (as kawadjan would call it)....

there should be heaps of pictures to come....in any case, I wont be able to blog from there, since the places we will go to are not conntected to the power grid...good luck to us!

Damn, no electricity? How about my hair dryer? Can't we just go to Nonthaburi instead?

BB...you get more points in your merit-making by feeding the orphans or bathing the leper...leave the fish alone...
