City of Angels

In about 2 days, it will be the end of the zodiac year of the mischievous monkey and we shall be welcoming the fire Rooster. We say Rooster, because the year of the chicken does not give it as much umph… 2016 has indeed been a funky year with the Monkey zodiac wrecking a fair bit of pranks all over the world!

Here we are again at the airport firing this post away. We are escaping from the little red dot and on the way to Bangkok, the city of Angels as its original long form name in Sanskrit reads. Here we will spend a super super long weekend away from all that lunar new year madness back home…since reunion dinner’s been had. It seems these days there are more people like us. Don’t judge.

You know there is so much written about Bangkok that it would be probably pointless for us to add to the mix. Known for excesses that defies imagination, this reminds us of a song. And it goes like this: “One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble”….anyone knows or remembers Murray Head?

So what will we be doing? What else but to experience a culinary overload? LOL. We have a reputation to keep up you will know! Ok, so we will also some exploring too, some of it in Bangkok and others outside of this sprawling city of angels. Watch out for our journalog coming your way soon!

PS: we got upgraded to Premium Economy on Cathay for this flight…heheh what a good start!

    1. Chinatown we avoided because it was the lunar new year this time we were in Bangkok. But yes there are lots to eat and shop there too.. This year the celebration is a little muted due to the mourning for the previous King’s passing.


  1. And there I was thinking only La La Land is the City of Angels. And then of course, there’s that heart-wrenching movie of Meg Ryan and Nick Cage.
    How do you get upgraded, pray tell! Share the trick so we can enjoy the same.

    1. Well Cinque Terre is indeed a place we have not touched and sure like to do so.
      Yes indeed we have left the NY madness behind us. Definitely bringing our journalog live in a week’s time!


  3. Hi Mel & Suan! 🙂 I wonder if you are in The City of Angels yet? But what I’m really wondering is why I’m no longer getting emails when you post on your blog? I’m waaaaay behind reading your posts. I had kind of thought it was a bit unusual that you weren’t writing any! Well, here I go…to try to catch up with you two! 😛
