So, some of you came to this blog and found it in such a disarray manner. Too bad, you were in the “construction zone”. I was fiddling with the html and whatnot with my ungodly hands. Yeah, a perfect recipe for disaster. Nonetheless, it’s all coming back together again. Fuhh… 

And am so proud of myself that I self-made my own header! From scratch! The vision came after much disaster beforehand. Not bad actually considering that I only used PhotoScape to do all this. 😉

Okay, enough with the drama of me trying to make this blog looks more “cute” eh? I know that I’ve been hoarding lots and lots of backpacking and traveling stories. I bet some of you might be a little bit confused with all the mixed/jumbled posting. And am still traveling! Wait till you hear about my “6 month Life-Changing-Plan“, you’ll shake your head in disbelief. 😛

Anyhow, about a week ago, my God-Sister Jard finally “converted” into a backpacker. Now she can ditch her trolly-dolly into the river. And the best part is that she did her first backpacking with me!

But wait till you hear the stories of her losing her stuffs while we backpack, I was the one panicking instead! Now, she’s itching to backpack again and maybe I have to padlock her stuffs to her body next time! 

We were actually bound for Chiang Mai but changed plans all the way. We ended up in Krabi then Bangkok, and guess what, Ayuthayya! Epic randomness, well perks being backpacker, you are not constraint to plans. But I have to tell you, this is one probably one of the best backpacking I have ever done. Met lots of amazing and friendly travelers.

Met this mother and daughter pair from the boat tour in Ayuthayya and we ended up spending some good time having dinner at the night market together.

Oh, this one is special. Why special? He is officially the first stranger I slept with (pun intended). Kidding! We were total strangers and in order to save money, we shared room all the way till Bangkok. And guess what? He followed us back to Malaysia! 

I met Carmen in the same Guesthouse in Ayuthayya, she was borrowing my Lonely Planet and we became friends. She even bought my first “travel laundry kit” so that next time I could roll it out and hang my cloths. 

And then we met Phaisin, my God-Sister’s friend who is an Angel! He treated us like Kings, treated us at a fancy restaurant by the Chao Praya River and drove us till 3 am so that we could see the “Real Bangkok”.  I owe you a big one, come to Kuala Lumpur and I’ll bring you to some really good food here Phaisin. 🙂 
I had a great backpacking to Ayuthayya, Thailand. Will be sharing all those stories and tips soon. Till then…keep on traveling peeps! 😀
