ขอขอบคุณ, Thailand!

My final day in Thailand for this vacation was last Monday. Time definitely went by way too fast when one is enjoying himself way too much. You just want to chill forever. Alas, reality check!

Monday morning was spent relaxing in our Hua Hin resort. We had  a hearty breakfast at Putahracsa’s Sala Monsoon restaurant, then we took a few more pictures of the resort. We also tried on the traditional Thai outfits they had for us just lying around in our closet (mudrang-mudra lang ang peg ko, gahd), then afterwards we packed our belongings and checked out.

Thus, I owed it to myself to eat lots of Thai food this time. Well, you bet I did!

Andre, me, Robin

My besties and I have this habit of impromptu drives out of town. Sometimes we go to places nearby, sometimes practically Narnian. One of our absolute favorite destinations is the relatively close Tagaytay.

Since the past few days have been fairly cool because of the Cthulhu-conducive stormy weather, I had a craving for some hot bulalo soup, and what’s a better way to have that than having an impromptu evening road trip with the gang as we are wont to do?
