Sunday Funday

24 Dec

It’s been a busy last week. Friends have come. And friends have gone. For when we will meet again, we are unsure.
So for the last week or so I have been doing my best to simply live life. Away from the computer. Away from the blog. Just enjoying everything and everyone as much as possible.

It’s been almost a week now since I last wrote so I feel as if the time has come to give you all a little update.
Its Christmas Eve today. As Christmas has come, I have found myself alone in Bangkok. People headed home. People gone to vacation in far away islands.
It’s ok though, as Bangkok is where my heart lies.

“Sunday Funday” is a little something we used to do back at home every weekend. As Sunday comes around. We all would drop anything we had to do, and spend our Sundays just relaxing with friends. Having a day of relaxation and spontaneous fun.
It had been a while since I had last had a Sunday Funday, so I decided it was time to introduce it to my good friend Axle.

So we headed to Lumpini Park. The epicenter of chill in Bangkok.

On our way though we decided to grab some sweets.
First up was a couple of milk teas. Delicious.
As we walked passed the McDonald’s I couldn’t help but be drawn towards it.
9 baht for a cone??
Why not?

I felt like a little kid again.

We grabbed some books, some postcards, and kicked back in the grass.

Sitting on the grass amongst families and people enjoying thier sunday along the lake with the city all around us.
How can you not love the city.

As I sat back and read my book I was greeted by a little friend.

BKK 301

I’m not sure what it is, but dogs here seem to be drawn to me.
Maybe it’s the long hair.

As I continued reading, Axle popped in his iPod and took a little nap.
Before he knew it, we woke up to my new friend licking his face.

Out in the distance we saw a crowd gathering round.
We inched up closer to see what all the fuss was about. Ended up being a free concert.
Full orchestra, and 2 opera singers.
Amazing to say the least.

So we spent our Evening eating popcorn in the grass listeing to the sweet sounds of the Thai equivalents of  Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli.

After an hour or 2 the concert was done, but our Sunday was not.
We went for a quick bite to eat, then decided to to head to the Saxophone Pub for some more live music.

An all girl band was rockin’ the night away.

What a Funday it was.

Sometimes the most simple days can be among the best.

Axle and I had quite the week together.

More on our adventures to come!
