Forgo the lame bingai story & lets continue with my trip to the Land of Ong Bak. Continuation from here. Two months has it been. Memang macam siput mau share experience. Cuba kalau trip 'balik kampung' laju jak aku update. Semangat.
But don't take it wrongly. I did enjoyed this trip. In fact, I fell in love with the Thais. So friendly, helpful & very accommodating. If asked would I revisit this country? My answer is a definite yes!
God's willing, I planned to visit the sunflower field in Lopburi one day. My maiden trip to Thailand was in Jul, not an appropriate season to go see the sunflower. Ladang adalah kering kontang sebab masa tu kan musim panas. Zila told me the best months to go is during the last three months of the year. Musim sejuk katanya. Info pasal sunflower trip pun boleh korek from Nani's & Zilla's blogs. Senang kerja.
1 July 2014
Before checking out that day, we went to Hua Hin Train Station. Located not too far away from our hotel, we decided to just walk to the station. Hirup udara segar di pagi hari.
|On the way to the station, we passed by a park with a statue in front of it. Didn't really bother to read the inscription on the plaque attached to the statue. Truth was, I can't wait to visit the cafe at the station actually. Haven't had any breakfast yet. Woohooo alhamdulillah Allah bestowed me the 'ABC slip' on my third day in Thailand.|
|Just found out, there's train service from Hua Hin to Bangkok. Read here for more info.|
Kalau tau, boleh try test. I would really love to try the sleepers-overnight coach. Ndak pernah lagi merasa overnight journey by train. Another reason to have another visit perhaps. Kena try naik local train at least once if visiting other countries. Asyik fast train jak kan, di Malaysia ada. Walhal Sabah Borneo train pun aku ndak pernah naik. Tapi kecoh mau naik train negara orang. Tettt!
It took us less than 10 minutes to reach the station. Rasanya kalau ndak stop click sana, click sini...lagi cepat kami sampai.
|Design yang ada frame red-orange ni memang tradermark Hua Hin aku rasa.|
|Boleh berlari sukati jiwa raga ke seberang sana. Dengan syarat, beware of any train(s) coming. Jangan berangan mau buat suicidal attempt sangat.|
|Mostly fridge magnet Hua Hin memang style yang frame begini (refer 'signboard' belakang aku). TAPI, kau ndak beli pun kan Bie. Kunun collect FM, piirah sangat.|
|Ok sudah penat ronda the train station. It's time to feed the hungry tummy.|
|I had imagined something like this for my 'own place'. Insha Allah.|
|We chose this spot to enjoyed our breakfast. The coffee served wasn't up to my expectation though yet the cafe's calm ambience balance that.|
|Someone who is not into coffee nor tea found her 'solace' in green tea. At last! No more "Do they serve other than caffeine?" Having to settled with choco drink every time we go ngopi was kinda boring for her already.|
|Took the opportunity to post the postcards as well. They sell stamp here just asked the lady at the counter. |
Tepi meja ni ada postbox, just dump ur postcard inside. And nantilah dengan sabar postcard sampai ke tangan penerima.
|Old train coach in front of the station.|
|Along the way from the train station to the hotel. Pretty epic fire station huh. Reminiscing my childhood. Balai raya di kampung looked like this.|
Habis breakfast. We made our move back to the hotel. We've planned to leave for Bangkok early. Ndak mau lah sampai lambat nanti mesti kepenatan. We took the minivan in front of the mall where we met the handsome Ahjussi driver the day before. Its easy peasy to find a minivan bound for Bangkok. We just have to say 'Bangkok' to the the minivan driver. No need to make the sengau voice like what we did when we're looking for the bus stop for Hua Hin minivan.
Journey to Bangkok took almost 3 hours. Lesser than the journey to reached Hua Hin. We reached Bangkok in the late afternoon. I didn't sleep much throughout the journye. Sibuk nyembang sama Ms G, ntah apa jak topik kami cover. We disembarked at Victoria Monument & rode the sky train to our hotel which is located in the Siam area. For that, I will continue in another entry. Sudah capek menaip. Sekian.
