Day 1: Thursday(October 1)
Our flight was at 9:30am. I already asked permission from my boss if I can leave early to be able to make our flight. At 5pm, Miles, Mac and I went down to get a cab. We met up with Jo and Pam at NAIA 3. It was my first time to use that airport and it wasn't so bad. Stella, Jeff and Julie arrived promptly 1 hour before boarding as they got stuck at work.

We arrived at past 1pm in Bangkok, got our luggage and found our service which brought us to our hotel. We were all so tired so we went straight to bed.

Day 2: Friday (Oct 2)
Loved the hotel’s breakfast buffet, stuffed myself with lots of rolls with butter and bacon.

First agenda was to go to the grand palace. We negotiated with a taxi to bring us there for only 40BHT with the condition that we pass by the gem factory first. So we did.

It was really hot in Bangkok! We then got to the Grand Palace and as any tourist took too many pictures of ourselves and the funny signs that we saw all around the place. Mac wanted to know how the guards were able to stay still despite the heat.

Then we rode a commuter train going to Ayuthaya which was really an adventure. On the way there was this guy who peed his pants. He was carried out of the train by police.

We negotiated with the tuktuk to bring us around. We saw different ruins, Buddha, elephants, a baby tiger and more funny signs.
We got back to Bangkok at 8pm. Mac, me, jo, pam and Miles decided to drink one round in a nearby cluster of bars. There were a lot of people and the night scene there is very similar to ours.

Day 3: Saturday (Oct 3)
Mac and I decided to go to Dream world. Bangkok’s theme park. It was a rip off of Disneyland but fun
We met a couple of Indians who really smelled bad.
Their water rides are really crazy.
We went to see a 4d show which was in Thai so we did not understand a thing,

Went to Siam Square after to look for Preduce Store which Mac found on the internet. We probably went around and around for a good 2 hours and have asked many natives who had a hard time speaking in English before we finally found the place.
After mac bought his shoes and shirt we went to Suan Lum night market which is very much like our divisoria. There was also a food plaza. Their stage is really big. Saw wasted thai kids.

Day 4: Sunday (Oct 4)
Last day was spent visitng different malls.
We splurged in Zen mall because of their ridiculous sales. Mac was a little frustrated because nothing will fit him so we decided to drop by Preduce again to buy him additional shirts.
We also went to MBK to buy pasalubong and sample thai noodles.
On the flight back there was this excess baggage lady who was so rude to us. She just didn’t have manners.
