Thailand - Hat Yai 1996 (revisit)
Date : 2nd to 5th March 1996
This time we went in a group of total 13 people.
My Grandmother, Fathers, Uncles, Neighbours & Friends...
We took a tour bus from Singapore to Thailand.
The journey is about 13 hours, if I remember correctly.
It was a night time departure and I slept all the way.
So.. to me the journey is Fast... hee hee.
After checking in, everyone went separates ways.
For me, I went immediately to find Fried Chicken wings. ... yummy.
One of the nights, while making phonecalls using the public phone, I spotted a baby elephant.
It was Sooooooooo Cute.
The elephant was gentle and seemed to me he is smiling.
We can buy water melons from the elephant owners to feed his pet.
Got this 2 big stuff toy home. Call them Dong Dong & Du Du.
Couldn't get them into my luggage.
Had to carry them along and it was quite embrassing when checking into immgration custom.
I brought alot of Thailand Coke Bottles & Can home too.
Used to collect back then, but I don't collect Coke anymore.
Still have some left in my house but mostly is glass bottle.
Can't keep the can ones, they'll burst after some years.
Thinking back now, I have not visit Hat Yai for about 11 year now.
The Buddha I am wearing now is from Hat Yai.
A Monk gave it to me and I like it very much.
I made a little donation to him when I left.
