This is cool I suppose. A big swimming pool in one park in Bangkok, Thailand. When we came last time we saw a lot of people swimming. My friend wanted to swim but she saw this crowd, she refrain from swimming. So we just took some pictures and went back to our hotel.

This is the 3rd time that I joined Scenic Sunday. This picture was taken in Mayanmar. I suppose, this is a beautiful place. I'm excited to visit this place if given a chance.

The monument was erected in June 1941 to commemorate the Thai victory in the brief war with the French colonial authorities in Indo-China, which resulted in Thailand annexing some territories in western Cambodia and northern and southern Laos. These were among the territories which the Kingdom of Siam had been forced to cede to France in 1893 and 1904, and patriotic Thais considered them rightfully to belong to Thailand.
In fact the fighting between the Thais and the French in December 1940 and January 1941 had been brief and inconclusive. Only 59 Thai troops were killed, and the final territorial settlement was imposed on both parties by Japan, which did not want to see a prolonged war between two regional allies at a time when it was preparing to launch a war of conquest in South East Asia. Thailand's gains were less than it hoped for, although more than the French wished to concede. Nevertheless the Thai regime of Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkhram decided to celebrate the war as a great victory, and the monument was commissioned, designed and erected within a few months.

Our friend who can speak Thai well went with us, another Filipino friend that we met in the city, my hubby and myself. It took more than an hour for us to get to the city proper.
When we reached the inner city, we saw a lot of people, and high rise buildings. We first saw the Siam Tower where you could see a lot of great and fantastic things.
Then we went to another mall connecting Siam Tower, it was known as Siam Discovery. It's another huge mall with fascinating designs.
Siam Paragon is the 3rd mall connecting to these 2 malls (Siam Tower and Siam Discovery). It's really, very huge and fantastic.
Underground the mall is the Largest Aquarium in Southeast Asia. We really had fun and we enjoyed a lot though it's quite tiring the whole day. It's worth it!

This is the 3rd time that I joined Yummy Sunday. Thanks for my friend Janet for featuring this Yummy Sunday.
A delicious fried chicken from Suan Siam City. A huge park inside Suan Siam.
My 6-year old son loves to eat this. After travelling and riding inside the park, we're so hungry so we bought this spicy fried chicken for each one of us. It's yummy!

It's so nice to see different tourist spots. We came to Bangkok by bus and it took 14 hours travel by night. Our friends told us of what's going on in Bangkok at that time because last week the situation was so upset but we had the peace of going no matter what.
So we travelled in the afternoon of Friday and reached Bangkok the next day, Saturday morning. We stayed in a church for 2 days before going to our retreat in another place.
The place where we held our retreat was so nice and peaceful although the city of Bangkok was in chaos. We had rested well and enjoyed.
Here are some pictures that I took...
It has big buses anywhere. If you are not sure of the place, you need to ask the help of friends or people who knew how to speak English. But it's fun to be there.

Every time we travel from different places we are really amazed of God's creation. And we can't help but took pictures of the beauty of creation. So I'm glad for this avenue.

A Crunchy Cockroaches
This is my Yummy Sunday post. I love Thai food. For now, food is not delicious if it is not spicy.
But this one I haven't tried only my hubby and teenager. I can't bear it. But they said it's crunchy. Wanna try some?
