First time in INDIA | Incredible INDIA


(Kolkata  & Santiniketan)

I.I  “Woohoo! Kolkata, India, here I come!”


Why­­ India?

“For me, traveling recharges my spirit. Taking a trip can also heal what ails my heart and makes me tired.”

I’m not exaggerating here. Give it a try and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
On days when you feel like dying, like your spirit’s gone and you don’t feel like doing anything, taking a trip somewhere to see the wide world can restore your sanity. It’s like adding recharging your mental battery. I’ve found that I really like one kind of feeling: The one that awakens every cell in my body and makes my spirits soar. The things that can give you that kind of feeling are love and traveling

And what place could be better than India? The variety, lifestyles, beliefs and livelihoods…. Let’s just say you’re sure to see things you never expected. I’d like to go to the Holi festival, go and throw paint at some real live Indian people. I’d like to touch the waters of the Ganges River. I want to pat the heads of cows sleeping on the ground. I want to go and be among the Indians. I want to experience the cradle of Buddhism. I want to know how wide the India I watched on the Discovery Channel as a kid will open my eyes and introduce me to new feelings.

You could say this is my debut trip. Once I got to India, my tourism attitude changed. I wanted to know more about how people live and their culture. I wanted to know about the world, where everything is, and I wanted to learn more about people’s habits rather than just their smiles.

To sum it up, after this trip, I can give you the abbreviated version now about how it was exciting, challenging, scary, undeveloped, breath-taking and warm-hearted all at once. Those of you who haven’t got the courage to go in person can follow me in my letters as I take you on a tour of India myself. We’re off!

And so it begins…

“Three of us went there,” and, “We didn’t know each other.”

When this all started, I was already planning a trip to India with my friends at the advertisement agency. We planned to go in time for the Holi festival. But then our gang fell apart, and the trip was canceled. I couldn’t do anything but lie down, stare at the ceiling and think to myself,

“I’m really not going?”

“(Sighs) They really cut our budget after I’ve been dreaming about this for half a year?”

It was even worse than a movie with a twist in the plot when the prince stumbles on a sidewalk and dies as he’s running to kiss the princess…It was absolutely ridiculous.

“No. I’m not going to accept such a pathetic ending.”

“I could go. I can go alone. I’ve been on trips by myself before. But this time, I’m taking it to the next level.”
So I turned on my computer. As I searched, I found headlines like “Foreigner Murdered and Raped on a Bus in India”. That’s when I said “Nope. No, I’m not going alone. I’ve gotta find someone to go with me. I’ve got to call a friend; some friends. And it should be easy to find someone to go to India with me. It’ll be like going to Singapore. They’ll come along…” (sarcastically)
Me: “Hey, I’m calling to see if you’d like to take a trip to throw some color powders. It’s a country where you’ll have a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The budget shouldn’t be more than 400$.”

Friend: “Where is it, Por? Sounds interesting.”

Me: “India.”

Friend: “Nah, you can go alone…”

What? What’s wrong with India? Why do you only like to look at the surface of things? It’s not as scary as you think (Yeah?). No matter who I called, the answer was the same. Some of them even brought up scary topics to shoot me down.

And I thought, if someone is gonna make it to India, S/he’s really got to want it. People who wish to go to India are the one that already have the determination not just a persuasion like this. There’s gotta be somebody in today’s world who already wants to go. Since was already in front of the computer, I posted to the online community. I figured I’d keep posting until I found someone. Please, please, let me find someone who really wants to go.

One night went by…then there was a message to me. That was the beginning of our acquaintance to this day. Thank you for everything that helped us get to know each other that day.

Fellow Travelers

In the end, I had two other people on the trip. One was named Pae. He had just graduated from Thammasat. The other was Pop, an exchange student in India. Pae met Pop by IG Hashtag and I met Pae on the online community. So, we had never known each other before, never seen each other and never met before. I only knew that it was okay to trust them because I asked our mutual friends. They looked like good enough people. Then we got to the two-week mark. We needed to get ready!!


We flew on a jet and landed in Kolkata. Just being on the plane gave me a complete feeling of India. I’d never had to be among so many Indian people like this. The smell was beyond description, very fragrant! They like to press the button and call the air hostesses for this and that all the time. Whoever that sitting near an Indian who liked to push the button would have to put up with it. Just say, “One more for me, please,” if they’re asking for something you already want like water or Coke. It was good not to have to call the air hostess myself. Thanks, hehe.

After three hours on the plane, we found ourselves waiting for the bags for over an hour. I was asleep for half the trip. Indians like to bring stuff from Thailand like clothes and electrical appliances. Then they open the bags to check the items right on the spot. Things were scattered everywhere. So you’ll have to wait and think about it as an ice-breaking activity with Indians.

*I have to say I waited until I was starting to smell like in Indian. It was a long time. And I wanted to see the city outside >.<DSCF4807-2 DSCF4809-2

The cars here are classics. I like that.

Taxis don’t need to have windows because you wouldn’t get to use them, even if they were there. The taxis usually don’t have air conditioning. So, we had to open the windows to let the air in. But don’t stick your head out because they drive very closely together in India. They drive like they’re playing a game.

Amazing race

I noticed the taxis usually don’t have side mirrors. I don’t know if it’s because they probably wouldn’t use them even if they had them or if they took them off for convenience when they drive only two centimeters apart. It was an entirely new experience. I challenge people who are risk takers and want to spend their life insurance quickly to sit on a car here and tell them “as fast as you can”. I guarantee the experience (and a percentage of using the life insurance).

Very Awesome
Our first feeling when the taxi drove out of the airport and we see the reality that we have to face is being very satisfied with our lives so that I had to risk my life by sticking my head outside the car and shouted out loud to the city:


Once we had left the airport, it was like we had warped to another planet. We had a real culture shock. It was like, ‘This is what I wanted!’
“You wanted to see this? You were afraid of coming? Well, here you are!” That feeling of complete difference and new feelings with a new culture was totally awesome!!!

Not As Scary As I Thought

I looked at both sides of the road, kept noticing that people here seem to like tourists. Almost every one of them said, “Hello” to us. Okay, this isn’t as scary as I thought it would be.

I was very alert. I kept smiling and calling out greetings. It was like I was Miss World Peace!

Please blow a horn

The first thing that will remind you of India when you get back is “the horns”,

For the easily annoyed, be careful of becoming psychotic, lol. They use their horns here like there is a Loudest honk award! It would be strange for someone from here to not use a horn. If anything happens, you’d be cursed with the words, “Why didn’t you blow your horn?” The horns are the God of Traffic. You don’t have to know the traffic rules much. If you can blow a horn, you can drive (just kidding).

My Quest

Another thing I did on the trip is taking snap shots of people urinating or defecating at the street-side (seems kind of low to take those pictures, lol). Don’t forget to look at the scenery on both sides of the road to see how people live. If you go and you don’t see people urinating or defecating, you’re not there yet. Like I said before, India is a country where:

“Anything can happen at the roadside like crapping, peeing, selling stuff, hanging laundry, slaughtering chickens or even dying…”

A Brief Summary of Indians

Indians are nice. They’re very Indy and extremely independent.

They pee when they like, poo when they want and scratch when they itch. And they go back to making rotis after all that (I just found out it’s true today). Do what you want to do!!!

Everything is on their heads

In India, suitcases are not for pulling. Indians carry everything on their heads from kitchen utensils to suitcases! 
DSCF6452 DSCF6457

Let’s go on and get to know Kali.

“Dakshineswar Kali Temple”

If it’s not dark when you get off your plane, head straight for the Dakshineswar Kali Temple. It won’t take long. The temple is near the airport on the banks of the Hooghly River. It is a reddish cream-colored temple, because that is Kali’s favorite color. The temple roof has nine spires. It’s striking!

PS Be careful you don’t go to the wrong place because they have two temples to Kali here. The other temple is far from the airport and not next to a river. If you go to the wrong temple, you’ll find it scary. They slaughter cattle and sheep as sacrifices to Kali. The atmosphere’s really ominous. We went to the wrong place and got a shock. If you want to go through what we did, you’re welcome to go there (be careful of the wide assortment of criminals).

The temple is surrounded by twelve temples for worshiping Shiva, Lakshmi and Vishnu. Don’t forget to buy offerings for Kali at the kiosk outside and ring the small bells to ask for a blessing from Shiva.

They don’t let you wear shoes inside. So take off your shoes in the shoe kiosk. Don’t just leave the shoes around. They will go missing. If you go before 5:30 p.m., you’ll have enough light. After that, the light isn’t good for taking pictures.

We went when the light was just about gone, because we had a cab driver who wouldn’t take the highway when we asked him to. And once we got there, the guard was picky about our shoes, so the light was gone and we laughed with tears in our eyes T^T. But we were satisfied overall-maybe even more than we were by all the tranquility of the entire city.DSCF6838

Let’s go for a walk.

“Sudder Street & Park Street.”

Anyone who forgets to exchange money beforehand can do so here. (for a better rate too)

There are TONS of homeless people here, even more than in San Francisco. If you don’t have change, don’t make eye contact. Just walk quietly. Coming here gave us a lot to think about. I felt a lot more subdued. You’d have to come to see and feel it for yourself to know what I’m talking about.DSCF4882


DSCF4896 DSCF4949 DSCF4905-2This is just what you see through my camera lens.
I saw them with my own eyes. Just imagine how I feel…


Stores are small shops, like vendor stalls.
If it’s a building, it will usually be drilled into a rectangular block that isn’t much different from a booth.
They have only one floor and one front entrance. They don’t have doors connecting to other rooms.
If you want to go to the bathroom, you will have to cross where they sell things.
Some buildings have multiple floors but they do this by drilling a square hole in the ceiling and climbing up and down with rope ladders. They’re space-saving experts.
DSCF4898 DSCF4868

Indians still commonly use ground water. DSCF4942

Use your hand, baby!

Some of the places where they eat by the road are like this.
Their spoons are slightly smaller than ours. And in some places, they use their hands–not just the person eating but the person who serves the food, too! They use their hands to give out rice, meat in curry and food.

Who says Indian cuisine isn’t good? I’ll back this up. It’s excellent. You just have to eat from the right menu and restaurant (that’s the hard part).

  • Don’t forget to pick a restaurant that doesn’t look squalid. I recommend this place. It’s called “Blue Sky.”DSCF4920

The food you won’t forget!

For food menus, we like this one a lot. It’s called
“Chicken Butter” or **“Chicken Burtar” **in some restaurants. It looks and tastes is almost not the same in each restaurant.
You eat them with “Nans” (similar to Rotis, but they’re softer and thicker), and you can eat them instead of rice. It’s excellent. You’ve got to give it a try. They’ve Butter Nans, Cheese Nans, Garlic Nans
“Chicken butter masala” (masala is the spice powder) is also great.

Indian “Chicken Biryani”.

We’re at a place called Arsalan. This restaurant is famous and has received numerous awards. It’s on Sudder Street. They don’t have just one branch. They have several branches. The rice here is long and thin. They don’t stick together. They’re very enjoyable and tasty to eat.

  • Sorry the photos do not look very appetizing. Haha. But they taste really good. You’ve got to try it out.DSCF6586

At our country, we drink cold tea. Here, the weather is very hot, and they still drink hot tea. DSCF6549

Original roti making! There’s some for you to sample. Guess if I dared to…?

Mc. Veggie is scrumptious.

Indian Congee

They dared me to try it. I tried it out. I wasn’t afraid (really?) (Actually, I didn’t know what was. But it tasted like congee, and the way they made it when they dished it up and sprinkled it with something, it looked very much like congee). I don’t know how they cut the meat into my bowl, but I saw the person tearing meat into the next person’s bowl with his hands… Hmm, it’s probably good that I only tasted from the tip of the spoon…


It’s very similar to dumplings. I don’t know if they’re the same kind. In Thailand and China that the dumplings are moist, and you will have soup when you bite into them. The dumplings here are dry and only have the fillings. They’re sold everywhere. As far as I’m concerned, Thai and Chinese dumplings are better.

Peter Cat.

This restaurant is famous.
There’s always a waiting line. Most of them come here for their Indian-style steaks.
You could try it out if you pass by.DSCF6898

Holi Festival

Get ready to play Holi.1979663_613222332092538_1155841931_n-2
This is the day after playing Holi in Kolkata.
See? You can’t wash it off. It’ll be another week before they come off. I can tell you that his face looks a lot like how he felt. Ha!

Westerners who come to play Holi here.

  • Remember, Kolkata is usually not like other places when it comes to festival days. Check about the day they stop playing before you come.


Riding a rickshaw at night.

The smile of Indian.

I asked him to show two fingers. He looked shy, and it looked like he didn’t know how. Hehe. cute.

P.S.– Before using any services, make an explicit agreement about the price before hurting feelings arise later. I can’t say enough about this because they like to charge extra or won’t charge the same price they told you in the beginning. It’s like this wherever you go. The hearts, generosity, and selfishness change based on their living conditions. When they have to survive in difficult living conditions, it’s not so surprising that they want more in every way than people who have good living conditions. We just have to understand and keep tabs on the situation 🙂

“Victoria Memorial”

You can take a car to the Victoria Memorial nearby. It’s a British victory monument. I recommend going before five and taking a picture from the back where there’s a pool. It looks exquisite when you take the picture where you can see the reflection, too. Unfortunately, the light was gone when we arrived, so our photo isn’t very good.DSCF4957 DSCF4987 DSCF5005 DSCF4982

Mother Teresa’s Tomb

Next, let’s move on to Mother Teresa’s Tomb.

A woman who was accepted and admired as a citizen of the country in an era when India had no acceptance for women, Mother Teresa helped many Indians escape suffering by leading them to God. Anyone who’s not into this doesn’t have to come. However, whoever is into this kind of thing and comes here will feel good about what Mother Teresa did and about the power of giving. Really 🙂

Part I.II

“Santiniketan – A Place for Education Under the Trees”


Santiniketan means a city of peace.
Personally, I didn’t think there wasn’t much to this town (or maybe I wasn’t able to reach this place. I didn’t feel “in” with it T-T).

Anyone who knows and admires Robindronath Thakur, the epic poet was known as “the Bard of Bengal” who built this “Visva Bharati” college and was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, would love this place.

Personally, I’m not a very artistic person, so I thought this might not be my kind of place. But since my friends wanted to come, it was good to try it out once. At first, we were going to stay for one night, but we changed our plans into a one-day trip (one day is more than enough). We went on the local train because we hadn’t made any reservations.

Let’s start!

We left Kolkata by taxi over the Howrah bridge built by the British Empire over a hundred years ago and headed to the local train station, which is near the bridge.

The Local Train

We’re here! We’re going to try the local train. It’s pretty exciting. Haha.

At this station, the Top Nose has a slight chicken feces odor, the Middle Nose is mixed with a hint of Indian and the Base Nose is an ultra strong scent of urea. It was a good thing I brought my menthol inhalant. I should have brought it to block my nose T-T. We didn’t book tickets before we came, so we bought tickets from the counter at 70 rupees (~1$). We would’ve mostly ended up in a very crowded wagon with people standing. But luck was with us, and we got a cart with seats just like on buses.

On the Local Train
DSCF6697uu1-2 DSCF6684Keep your change ready. Every kind of beggar you’ve ever seen in all corners of the world will walk by you…at least three of them at each station. Just give them ten or twenty rupees. It would be too Thai to pretend to sleep. lol.

Indian lady boys

They’ve got more of them than every other type of beggar. Even the poorest beggars don’t earn half what they do. Why? It’s because they will whine and curse you if you ignore them. All the other Indians were downright afraid of them. All they have to do is walk by, and they pull out their money fast enough! They get ten bills from every row in the front to the back of the train; I tell you! Pretending to sleep may not help you escape their curse. Sometimes they even wake you up to curse at you. lol. It’s not just on trains. They will walk up to you and ask you for money even at crossroads. If you give them money, they will give you a blessing and touch your forehead with the money. It felt strangely mystical…Get those small bills ready, people (only bills. Be prepared to be cursed at if you give coins. It’s so difficult to please these beautiful ladies. haha).

The Indian Bean

Indians and beans go together (I don’t know what they call them. I do know that they mix them with honey and stir them. Great!). Indians like their beans. For us, we just look at them and go “Oooh!” We’re not brave enough. Haha.DSCF6682 DSCF6680

Welcome to Santiniketan

We’re here. It’s an Artistic town, “Santiniketan”.
So very Q U I E T… Probably why they call it “Santi” (peace)…
We took a rickshaw ride to see the town

It was pleasantly quiet without any horns. Oh, it’s just not like India without the horns…
We don’t understand why there are tours here that charge high-end prices!
If you don’t think about giving up everything, don’t bother coming here, please.

(But if someone comes and likes it, you can always change places with me. I want to know because not everyone will have the same idea)
DSCF6710 DSCF6733

All the nerds come to this Indy town where they can do what they want.
DSCF6746 DSCF6751 DSCF6745 DSCF6742uu1-2 DSCF6757uu1-2

I tried out almost every food here. But “tried out” really meant I just tasted the spoon tip.
Because I didn’t get vaccinations before I came.
That’s why I have to be a little careful if I’m thinking about eating anything.
(This tasted like regular sweetened powdered milk.)

It Started Under The Tree

Teaching under trees is a unique feature of this place in remembrance of Robindronath Thakur because “Visva Bharati” was created when Robindronath Thakur began teaching five students under a large tree. Since then, a great place of learning was established in this city of peace.

A college without signs or uniforms.

In this Indy town, they ride original fix gears, raise goats as pets and eat them once they’re fat.
They eat yogurt out of earthenware cups and listen to very moving Indian songs.
They are already as Artist as they can be without trying to grow cactus, listening to Desktop Error or reading Kinfolk.

Any Art student is welcome to challenge their inner artist here.

That Indian guy is telling us something with his eyes, haha.

I asked him for a ride. The old geezer (senior) who rode it here didn’t trust me and ran after me. He clapped his hands for me once I showed him, hehe.

Time to say Goodbye!

We waited for the train at the station. Bye, bye, artist town.
1391471_612557942158977_486219971_n-2 1920451_612590982155673_1834530143_n-2

Let’s go back.

The local train…please let this be the last time in my life. My life felt like everything was a hardship. It wasn’t so bad on the way here. I got to sit then. I barely got to sit on the way back, and I found a cockroach. I barely escaped from it. I screamed and ran from the cockroach until all the Indians in the bogey wondered what was going on. They had a good laugh.

P.S.-  Then an Indian man grabbed the cockroach with his bare hands and threw it off the train. Ew! Thank you very much.

Hard sale!


This Indian made everyone laugh because of his adorable hard sale. We don’t know what he said but we knew it was so funny that we wanted to know. 555.

P.S. – He still could make 15% of what that lady boy beggar made. I swear it!

That’s it for the Santiniketan trip. A grueling 3-hour ride just to go there for two hours and get back…what for…but it cost only 5$ to go there and back, so let’s stop complaining. Haha.


You should go on the weekend because they’ll have field fairs selling some cool handicrafts you can buy as souvenirs. Really cute. We didn’t see any of it because we didn’t go there on the weekend.

*We don’t recommend anyone without a specific purpose to come here.
*However, someone who is impressed by the ways and educational energy of Robindronath should come and stay here for a few days to take it all in and talk with the students here.
*Whoever wants to feel “in” with this place should read a lot about his background. He is not an ordinary person; I assure you.

Anyone who is “in” with the feeling should be happy here. It felt very calm, peaceful and warm 🙂

Unforgettable Souvenir

The “Kamasutra” is on the shelves of almost every bookshop in Kolkata, even the small ones on the road! If you dare to ask for it, they dare to pick it out for you. They’re serious about it in this country! A recommended souvenir for your friends with a sense of humor! Excellent!

And now we move on to more usual souvenirs for regular people.
Regular souvenirs that sell well here are Indians shirts and pants.
Shops that sell knickknacks will also sell rings and wristbands. It’s cute if you make the right choices.

Next Station Bodh Gaya

That’s it for Kolkata. Bye.

Next stop, Bodh Gaya. We will go on a pilgrimage.

Now. Okay. Tonight, we’re getting ready to go to Bodh Gaya, the city where Buddha was enlightened.
We have to board a train at about 10:30 p.m.

The train station is beyond description. Imagine Hua Lamphong in the past when everyone was lazing around all over the floor. There’s dust outside and inside the station. First class rooms mean waiting for trains here with nearly no air to breath. It’s really stale.

People were lying around all over the place. It’s pure and unadulterated India. Foul and depressing. We thought we wouldn’t be there very long, but the train was late. We had to sit and wait for hours, and we were sleepy. If you ask if we dared to sleep there, I’ll tell you that…we did and a very deep one. (took excellent care of ourselves, did we?). Well, at least, we didn’t all sleep at the same time. We took turns to keep watch.

Finally, We Board the Train

The way up actually had chains, whips, handcuffs and candle for sale (Just kidding. Only keys and chains) so you can lock and chain your bags to prevent them from going missing while you sleep. I looked around and noticed some of the passengers had their own locks and chains. If the locals have it, we’d be challenging the host too much. Haha.DSCF5048

We looked for our bogeys. Pop had the same bogey as Pae because they booked it at the same time. I booked mine later, so I had a different Bogey. But Pop went to sleep in the other bogey instead and said I’m a woman, and I should not sleep alone T-T. It was touching. Very cute. Thanks. Okay, I’m going to sleep. I’m exhausted. See you later in Bodh Gaya.

Good night~

Malaysia, sister trip (en vid มไ่ขึ้น)

I’ve written a short conclusion of what you should Go in Malaysia.
You can skip all of the nonsense stories and just read the conclusion at the end.


*don’t forget to adjust the quality to 1080p (HD mode) *

This trip has just me and my older sister, Mink.
Which, you know what, we’ve never travelled together before. (not include the family trip when we were young)
Even we are sister and look just like a twin, we have almost nothing in common.
She has a super sweet taste while I am more boyish.
If compare us to color I must be yellow and she must be pink.
and… you know “sisterhood”, that’s mean we fight a lot over many nonsense things. Lol.
So at first I wonder if we are going to get along well during the trip? or it will be a war.
but at the end of the day, the trip turn out great. It’s a warm and funny trip : )

Chinese temple in the fog located up on the mountain.
Should come here before 11 AM cause it’ll be the best time for the temple to reveal its beauty.
Here is not far from Genting, you can take a bus from there.

Always be my dream city

I’ve been in the US before but never been in NYC. This is my super first time here. It’ll be superb if I’m not carrying my work along cause I wasted most of the time sitting in my room, working. Anyway, It’s been a good fun roaming alone but not totally alone. I met a group of Thai friend here and some new foreign friends from the meetup that I joined. The place where I lived is on the road just over the Central park located in HARLEM (of cause It’s an AirBNB) and then I moved to Times square just right at the center! It’s a lot smaller than in Harlem but who care about the size if you are living in the heart of NYC.

Good town, good time, good memories and good people : )

Hello my up coming 24 : )

SINGAPORE – The real alone trip

Everything happens so fast

It’s so funny, yesterday I still worked like crazy and now I found myself walking here alone.

Celebrate my 22 with my first time solo abroad.
Solo traveling is great. I can go whenever and wherever I want. I can just stop when I feel like.
Sleep when I feel lazy, Rest when I feel tired and I can change plan at any time too.  So free!
mithuna27 in singapore good for alone trip

The trouble..

  1. I quit my job and book a trip to Singapore on the last day of the work.
  2. The last day of the work was so freaking load! so I have no time to finish the plan of the trip.
  3. I took the he fully-charged Power bank with me but I forgot the charger home. so I can not use the map or the internet.
  4. I’ve already printed the hotel booking information before the boarding time but.. I forget it at the airport…
    5. So I had to plan everything at the Singapore airport T-T


But at least I can pass through all of these, and the manual map was incredibly amazing!

What to eat in Singapore?

Ya Kun Kaya toast
It is the breakfast of Chinese people in the past. I really like the taste , the smell and the texture of the Ya Kun.
Eat together with tea or coffee and the soft-boiled egg that you have to scramble it and putting some soy sauce.
The bread of the Ya Kun toast is slim and very crispy which is so good together with the Ya Kun Kaya
(If you like the Kaya, you can buy the jar of it home but to find the perfect bread to eat with is very hard)

**Sticky rice dumplings with ginger syrup **
The sticky rice dumpling filled with black sesame which ready to gush out when you bite it.
Ya Kun Ka Ya Singapore desert

**Street Waffle Ice-cream **
The one in front of the City Hall MRT station is the best (I like the ‘sweet corn’ flavour)

singapore icecream sweet corn

**Char koay teow
**Almost the same as Pad-Thai but I prefer Pad-Thai. So if you have ever tasted the Pad-Thai and you don’t like it, you can skip this one to Laksa.

The best one is “328 Katong Laksa” around 5-7 SGD
“Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei Claypot Laksa” and “Janggut Laksa” is way so good too.

Char koay teow and Katong LaksaDimsum
Super great especially ‘Xiao Long Bao’ it is the dumpling that have a soup inside. (beware of the tongue burn. Make sure it cooling down before eat)
You can find the Dimsum around the town but this one is ‘Yum Cha Restaurant’ at China town


  • Chicken Rice
    / Boon Tong Kee at Balestier is the most famous one.
    / Ming Kee Chicken rice or aka. ‘Bishan Cold Chicken Rice’. You may have to queue for 30 mins but it is worth waiting for. The identity of this restaurant is the ‘cold served chicken boasts’. Why cold?  Once the chicken is cooked, they’ll dunk it in ice water and it will be left there for a minute until it is ready to be chopped. Doing like that creates a jelly under the skin so it is flavorful and taste even better when you eat together with some steaming rice. (at ‘Bishan’ open : ~5-8PM price : 3-6 SGD)
  • **Chilli crab **
    / Long Beach Seafood, /Jumbo Seafood, /No Signboard Seafood
    / Mellben Seafood (at Ang Mo Kio) well-known menus are Chilli Crab, Bee Hoon Soup Crab and the Creamy butter Crab.
  • **Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶 )
    **It is a Chinese Herbal Broth with Pork Ribs. It is a Chinese Malaysian dish but it also famous here too. Better together with boiled pea, Pork Leg Stew or deep-fried dough stick.
    / Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House, /Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, /Founder Bak Kut Teh Restaurant
    / Marsiling – Faraway and take an effort to go but worth it. (at Marsiling Road Block 19)
  • **Egg tart
    / Tong Heng Confectionery (285 South Bridge Rd), /Leung Sang Hong Kong Pastries (18 Jalan Membina)
  • **Singapore Sling
    **/ Long Bar is the place where you have to go there once when you go to Singapore. Order the ‘Singapore sling’ and shelling your free pea nuts and just throwing your broken shells all over the floor like everybody does. (warning : be ready for the price >.<)

So now, Where to go in Singapore?Little india in singapore

Marina Bay Sands

Apart from taking picture with the Merlion, the night at Marina Bay Sands was so incredibly chill! There was a live band playing in the open hall nearby and it was really good. You can take your time here waiting for the ‘WonderFull – Light & Water Spectacular’ You have to be at the Marina Bay Sands side to watch the Water Show, and for the **Light Show **you have to be across the bay to watch it.  (Time : 8pm and the 2nd round is 9.30pm)

Marina Bay Sands2

China Town

Night Street and the Food!
Dimsum, Sticky Rice Dumpling, Egg tart and many more for you to choose on this street both day time and night time!
And there are a ‘Buddha Tooth Relic Temple’ nearby to make a wish too.

Little India

You can take a metro for a few stops and feel like you are in a different country and you can taste Indian food at extremely affordable prices. Food, temple and the colorful buildings is surely diverge from the rest of the Singaporean places.

Garden By The Bay

There are Flower dome and Forest dome both magnificent for one who love plants. The must see is the lightning show on the trees at night (close time is  9PM)

Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay

Boat Quay & Clarke Quay

Not far away from each other. Best place to drink, chill and enjoying the view at the evening time. You can find many good restaurants and bars along the side of Singapore river. Boat Quay is more quiet than Clarke Quay, If you don’t want the louder noise this is a best spot for you.
Boat Quay singapore


Don’t miss the Luge & Sky ride when you come to Sentosa. Here also have a Universal studio, Water park, Aquarium, Fun park and Casino.sentosa singapore aquarium singapore

It’s where the journey begins| USA

19 years old.

I decided to going out. Allowed myself to know more the world.
My first time going out of Thailand, and seeing another world that I can just imagine for all of my life.
I don’t know how to describe the feeling in that day, It just so excited and my heart beating like it’s going to jump out.

I’m alone with myself.
I really have no idea what am I going to face? What kind of people am I going to meet?
I really know nothing!
The only thing I know was I had THE BELIEF.
I believed in the fate and I believed in myself.
No matter what happen I’ll make it through.

and for the end of the day, I can do it, for even more than I expected.
This first step I made, such a precious experience that I will never forget.

Traveling in Michigan, Nebraska, Los angeles, Las Vegas.
