A couple of months ago, I had planned to go to Ayutthaya and Sukhothai for a few days (by myself in each city) but those plans went up in smoke when my back gave out but it wasn't all bad, I guess. I posted about that HERE. My original plan was to take the bus to Ayutthaya, disembark at the bus sta
Also known as New Rod Fai Train Night Market Ratchada, Train Market, Rot Fai Ratchada, New Rot Fai (and various combinations of those words). Why is this important to know? Well, there is another Rot Fai Train Market (on Srinakarin Street near Seacon Square) that is still in operation. My post abou
Don't confuse this Rot Fai Train Night Market with the other Rot Fai Train Night Market. This one is in the Ratchada area and just off of Ratchadaphisek Road close to the Thailand Cultural Center. This one is also known as the new Rot Fai Train Night Market. The other Rot Fai Train Night Market is
OK so after 20+ years of travel my trusty travel companion decided to burst at the seams. Though not a big burst it's still big enough to worry about it catching something and tearing even more. Call me crazy or sentimental (maybe both?) but I don't wanna ditch my travel buddy. I had no problems ge
Other names for this "Train Night Market" are Old Rot Fai, and Srinakarin Road Night Market and pretty much any combination of those words (and small spelling changes like Talat or Rot). Why does this matter? Well because the "New" Rot Fai Train Market is located at Ratchadal. I'll post about the R
Around the corner from Seacon Square is a night market named Rod Fai night market. The best way to get here as of this writing is via taxi. We took a Grab taxi to Seacon Square earlier in the afternoon to do some shopping/exploring. If you're interested HERE's the post.

This was an unexpected day. My youngest insisted that she and 'mother' take me to a train night market even after I told them that I had been to one already (will post about the two train markets shortly). You know, it's very rare that my teenager wants to hang out all day with me, so of course I j
Hey y'all ! I know most won't be interested in this post since it's about repairing amulets of the Thai / Buddhist variety but I think it would be useful to share some info that I've come across in my endeavor to have the casing repaired / replaced on one of my amulets.
So after almost giving up an
If you find being swung around in circles repeatedly at speed, then this is the park for you. I was never a fan of the spinning rides. Roller coasters, yes but spinning ones, hell no! Having said that I'll keep an open mind whilst writing this post/review and let the images do most of the persuadin
Did my opening picture catch your attention? HAHAHA, who would have thought to put an adult novelty toys shop in an IT parts mall? Apparently, a genius because there are 3 shops now whereas there weren't any a few years ago! I guess Singapore isn't as conservative a country as people have led me to
Hey guys, and gals! If you've been following my Thailand shenanigans, you'll know that I've purchased a few more Thai amulets whilst I was in Bangkok. I'm now back in Singapore. So interestingly enough, having been living in Singapore for 14 years, I've never had the urge to go in this particular bu
If you're needing to buy a boat load or just a handful of souvenirs while in Singapore, you'll want to check out Bugis Street Market which is located within a 5 min walk from Bugis MRT Station on the green line. Here's an MRT map (as of Dec 2019). One of my favorite things about Singapore is the eas
