Note : I’ve edited the entry with a photo… just to make it easier to understand what I was trying to write about 16/6/05
Having read the newspapers today and saw the picture of “Rub Nong” which means welcome freshy in English kind of disturb me. It’s the culture that Thailand’s Universities established in order to create unity for the newcomers and current students. I think that some of the activities are very inappropriate and morally wrong… Take a look at this pict for example.
This picture was taken last year at one of the private university. It’s one of the activities aiming to “create the bond between Freshies and current students at university”
I never had a chance to join “Rub Nong” activity in Thailand as I spend most of my student years in Australia, Maybe… elaboration of Rub Nong might be a good way out and replace with “University’s Orientation” instead
I just read the recent post by Teazor, about motorbike taxi, I can totally related to it. Despite being a local in Bangkok, but I never ever had to ride the motorbike taxi before in my life until I started working. Call me mommy’s girl but my mom is totally opposed the idea of me on the bike.
Last week was the first time that I took the motorbike taxi from Sukhumvit to Silom. I had to take the tape back for the satelite feeding (that’s for the Soccer match between Japan and Korea DPR) I constantly told the driver to go slow, although he nodded but we made it to my office in the record time, and I swear.. my heart nearly stopped beating!
By the time I was asking for the price, I gave him 20 bahts more than what he asked, considering that I was safe after he tried to pass over the petrol Truck.
Thailand is always amazing, but for me, Bangkok is much more ….
Super Amazing Bangkok.
