Battlestar Galactica S03E01-07 (SciFi)

Well, I finally got back into Bstar this weekend. After our holiday, I was looking for some entertainment and came up with 15 episodes of unwatched scifi. So I started watching them. In all honesty, I started in the second week of February, but carried on last night.

A British Chestnut Leaf On The Storytree

From one of my Thailand Chronicles Posts

He is a Brit who lives here and does periodical visa runs to Myanmar. He just had a daughter from his Thai wife and runs his bar. Interesting chap. He said he loves it here, though he does go back each summer to England for 6 weeks.

One night, last Wednesday after visiting the fair and Wat Chalong in Phuket, Thailand, my friend and I went out to a bar near Hat Rawai. We sat down and I got a coke because they didn’t have any Fantas or fresh juices. The owner of the bar came to see us after he finished a game of pool.

An Indian Waterlilly Pleasantly Attached To The Storytree

When I was waiting for my wife to check which aisle we had to check-in for our flight to Taipei in Suvarnabhumi airport, an old Indian woman accosted me. She asked me if I was Indian. I told her that my parents were, but that I was Canadian. My wife and I were teaching English in Taiwan.

Really, she said. I am Canadian as well, from Calgary.

That is great I replied.

A Banyan Leaf Of The Storytree


I met a young man named Emir. At first, I thought that he was a Frenchman, but he told me that he was from Oman, heading from Phuket to Bangkok and then visiting Pattaya, nightclub and whore central in Thailand. I thought I heard his uncle talk in French, but it must have been someone else. His uncle has a young Thai woman with him and probably more than one wife at home in Oman.

A Cherry Blossom On The Storytree


Just a quick word to say that the service on Cathay Pacific was great, but the food wasn’t too good this time around, at least I got to talk with a 1.76m tall Chinese stewardess who told me that if she had 5 dollars for every time somebody asked her that, she would be a millionaire. Actually, I explained, I didn’t mean it like that. My wife and I both think you could be a model or a TV actress. Naturally, the last part of the conversation I only said in my head, but still the flight attendants on Cathay Pacific are especially attractice.

We Have Arrived Safely

We arrived home at around 5:30PM in Hsinchu. The place looks a bit fuzzy, but at least we will be sleeping in our own beds tonight. Our taxi driver Wins picked us up on time at the airport and drove us leisurely home. I can access my money fine, now that I am back in Taiwan of course.

A Few More Hours To Go

It is 5:23AM here in Bangkok International Airport and I am waiting patiently for my flight and check-in. My check-in begins at 6AM and my flight leaves at 8:25AM. It arrives in Hong Kong at noon. My connecting flight leaves HK at 1PM and I land in Taipei at 3PM. I hope to be home by 4PM today, though I am unsure how certain this is.

I look forward to lots of sleep on the flights and at home.

I take home a lot of stories and images from my travels, taken care and heeding the advice that I have learned and lived through. Our next trip will take place in July. It is yet unsure what exactly I will do during the first two weeks of July, I might head directly into Vietnam or Laos by myself and join my wife in Bangkok to then travel to Chiang-Mai in the North of Thailand. We will then make our way down and East towards Cambodia and Angkor Wat. On the way there, we will visit Sukothai historical park, filled to the rim with Wats, and Prasat Phanom Rung in the East of Thailand, right before the Cambodian border.

To enter Cambodia, we will need visas. Which we will take care of in the beginning of our trip.

One thing though, I did enjoy Phuket, but the main reason of me going there was to meet up with an old friend JS.
