3 April 2011 - Bangkok (Part-2)

After play around with Obama, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, we heading to our most expensive dinner of our trip. It is so expensive that I started to think are we really budget backpackers?

In a tour, destination is important, journey is not important;
In backpacking, journey is more important than destination.

In order to reach our destination, we took skytrain to there. But we end up at wrong station, which is quite far from Bayoke. Yeah, we are going to Bayoke. Then we walk through deserted shophouse, because they were closed around 6pm. We had to walk for 20-30 mins to reach Bayoke, just walking toward the light... to the light....

Bayoke Sky Hotel, Bangkok
Finally we are there, classy restaurant. Feeling out of place because we are so 'selekeh', not dress nicely and smelled of sweat.
View from Bayoke
Enjoying unlimited buffet for 790 Bath, with magnificent view of Bangkok.

Actually it was the worst meal we had. We learned that best food have to be found at dirty place and cheap.

Bayoke.. Not forget to go out to revolving rooftop. It is so windy and moving quite fast.
From revolving rooftop

Then 2nd last thing to do is visit castle from outside.
Near Castle
Last thing to do is 
drink Sang Som (Wiski), smell like pee..
eat crickets, taste like crackers
pose like drug addict.

No job, no life

Have you watch 'Up in the Air'?

It is about a guy (sexy George Clooney) and his assistant who is much younger than him, travel around America to fire employee in behalf of the company. In the meanwhile, he is having fun collecting mileage points (I have an ex colleague who enjoy collecting mileage too). Most of those who were laid off are around the age of 40-60 years old. Imagine to lose the job at this age.

It is the JOB that hold the meaning of someone's life. Perhaps it is not the JOB. Perhaps it is the routine disruption that can cause deep depression. For all our life, we have routine for every phase of our life. When we were babies, your routine is to cry, drink, eat, and sleep. Then go to school everyday. Then work everyday. Then work and dating. Then work, family, and sleep. And work for most part of our life. Work is the routine for most of your life.

What if one day, when your alarm clock rang, you woke up and hit to shut the alarm. Lazy on your bed for 5 minutes more. Drag your butt up to wash your face, brush your teeth. Have your cereal alone. Grab car key and head to the door. Only then you realised... you are out of job.... You have no where to go. Suddenly you lost the objective of your daily living. Panic start to creep down from the tip of your hair. Ants crawling on your left side of your head. Brain is throbbing hard and 4 limbs go weak. WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?!!!!
