instead of doing responsibilities, let’s just breathe

I woke up from the sound of downpour this morning.
The rain was so heavy but because I planned to stay home lazing all day, I consider it as a serendipity.

Which brings my musing back to the day with identical weather, only I was outside.

After missed its closing hour the day before, we finally arrived at Ananta Samakom Throne Hall.
Initially, I wanted to revisit Vimanmek Mansion as it left such an impression on my 17-year-old self the first time I visited Bangkok, but at the time it was closed for renovation (wow such a fate).

Nevertheless, the throne hall is just as beautiful, in a grand way!
Please note that woman are required to wear long skirt/dress to enter. Wasn't aware of it until a resident staff told me, sometimes it's useful having the determination to dress up for the occasion.
No recording devices were allowed inside the hall. So, after the tour, by the time we took these photos it started raining hard. Everyone scattered around trying to find shelter. Eventually, two of us and bunch of other unfortunate tourists had to share a space near the hall entrance.

It was hot and humid; even a commotion happened where a girl accidentally stepped on another girl's foot and although it didn't look that bad, the victim kept acting like any physical contact with stranger caused her chronic illness. At last we found a space spacious enough to sit and watched them arguing for don't know how long hahah.

After some time, the rain finally stopped.
Making splashes from the puddle, we excused ourselves and made our way farther to Jim Thompson House.


  1. Pretty as always :D My sissy had a trip to Bangkok too last year. And she also visited JIM Thompson house! It was nice.

    1. Thank you very much ///
      Yes I do think that a visit to Jim Thompson House is a must! Just the surrounding alone is different than the usual crowded, busy Bangkok touristy site. Imo it's best visited in the afternoon to avoid the midday heat :D

  2. Wah, ada aturannya ya gak boleh pakai rok pendek. Btw, di sini juga musim hujan. Dingin banget kalau malam :)

    1. Iya mereka lumayan strict soal dress code, aku kira asalkan pakai rok aja udah cukup. Aku udah balik ke Indonesia kak, hihi. Iya tapi kalau siang tetap panas di tempatku :'


Thank you for spending your time on my blog, I always enjoy reading the thoughts you left here.
