…too many things that are running on my mind but for some reason, just can’t find time to write about it. Or I am just being lazy?
I love writing though I am not that good with it, I still have wrong grammar and spelling but well, bear with me but I am learning, I hope…hehehe!
Anyway, a friend told me that I’ve been more active on my Instagram account than updating my blog, if you’re following me there, you knew what I mean. But what she said is true…with there, I can easily post a picture of us and give a line or two about it. I wish that it is easy like that here…hahaha! Anyway, I hope to get back into blogging and updating my blogs…
For now, kids and I been everywhere, we’re trying to keep ourselves busy by going around places and exploring places for kids even before we leave Bangkok, which we can never tell when. So, here’s few of the places we been going around lately.
Kidzania (Siam Paragon) Newest Edutainment in Bangkok.
Funarium (Sukhumvit Soi 26)
Ice skating at Sub Zero (every Friday afternoon)
…and a lot more for kids entertainment, we event went to Thailand Children’s Day and Japanese Children’s Day!
My kids and I were also able to see some famous temples in Bangkok like The Grand Palace and the Emerald Buddha; Wat Saket (Golden Mount) and Wat Pho. Even traveling up to Ayutthaya for a day and getting a tuk-tuk tour around the city and sunset boat tour, that ends with having a dinner at the market area for some delicious Thai foods. I also able to go up to the top of Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). We also went to see Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi Province and experienced riding a long-tailed boat.
We also went to the beach one weekend and enjoyed Birds and Bees Resort as well as the Huay Kwang Beach in Pattaya.
Too many occasions to share like celebrating our second Songkran, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Valentines, International New Year, Chinese New Year and Thai New Year (lucky, ha, we have three new years here in Thailand). Plus lots of restaurants and places that with been too, I wish I could write them all. And those trips of us to fairs, exhibits and shows, still waiting to be shared.
I also love to share our experienced in the largest floating library that visited Bangkok Klongtoey Port, lucky that we were able to see Logos Hope…which as of this writing is in HongKong.
Believe me because of my laziness, I still havn’t post about my son’s 10th Birthday Party with a theme of Space Rocket, which deserved to be shared.
On the other hand, CJ was doing great in school, was able to get Director’s Award on 1st term, 4 various awards last term and 3rd term is about to end middle next month. He was also doing great with reading, he joined Readathon again and did great. He is now in Level Z, the last one for primary years but he is only in Year 4…he is ahead with it, he loves to read. Aside from violin, he also learning recorder and some Thai musical instrument. He is doing great with his swimming lessons too, he just tried surfing last weekend. He also performed as a lead character in the school show last December that gets lots of compliments. CJ’s growing to be such a young gentleman and can be independent, too. He is also such a great help at home and always been such a sweet boy, still kisses me goodnight and before going to school as well as coming back. He is such a great brother to Isabelle.
And Isabelle’s enjoying going to playgroups and ballet lessons, as well as enjoying making arts and crafts…she changed a lot since we moved here and growing so fast. But no matter what, she will always be my baby! We do have a lot of time together, we are buddies: shopping, eating, named it…we are inseparable! She still such a sweetie, she loves to cuddles and she always like to help, very friendly too! She’s just amazing and never failed to surprise me! She smart and knew a lot of things, believe me, she can sing so many nursery rhymes that some I don’t know, she even knew one French song, which I thought Japanese but when a friend who speak French heard it, she said its French. Oh, well, she likes to learn everything, she’s trying to speak Filipino too. No matter what, we just here to love and support her. She just turned 4 yesterday and coming up soon is her Fairy Party which keeping me busy, I hope I can share it with you to.
Nevertheless, I thank you for still finding time to come over here and on my other blog, its all appreciated. I need some Pixie Dust for now…to write this all and show you how we are here in Bangkok. And to share more about Bangkok, life here like schools, visa, people and the language. I am still studying to learn Thai language, which I am not into it…and next Tuesday, I will have my interview in their language with the Ministry of Education staff for me to renew my visa for another year, I need all the luck, wishes and prayers for it.
Anyway, Bangkok is such a lovely city and I want to show it to you…I will be back writing, thanks to my friend who told me, Just Do it…and yes, I will. I need more push maybe…hahaha!
