I have a continuation on our Chiang Mai trip.... some photos taken from enche hubby's phone.... which I must share with you guys....
Two things about the above photos...
- We met this Australian guy that can speak bahasa and Indon language....we shared interest that Bali is our favourite destination.... and he felt so happy that he finally can speak bahasa with us... though he commented that I can speak English well.... hahahhahah
- The mango juice we had is super yummy and cheap in Chiang Mai... THB30 ... we even can afford to pay for our friend's drink... same drink cost at least THB60-THB120 in Phuket..... we were rewarded recently on our drink purchase... a cendol for two of us were paid by a couple we shared the table with...that's about life... being kind to others will be paid in kind to... just a matter of time
