It’s been awhile since I neglected this blog. I have been busy because I uprooted by comfortable life in the Philippines to transfer to a new home in Thailand.
You see I was born to a Filipino mother and a Thai father. But basically I grew up in the Philippines — learned the language and the custom of the Philippines. But now I have decided to live in Thailand to know the culture, the language and to be with my dad’s family. I am a bit nervous but I think it will be exciting.
I don’t live in Bangkok but somewhere in the Northeast part of Thailand. It’s a little different from home… the pace is slow… but I think it would be good to relax here. I’ve been here for about a week and a half now. The roads are a little confusing to me but I am excited. But my lack of knowledge in the Thai language is a bit bothersome. Maybe soon I can speak Thai. But I think this city is exciting… I like riding the song taew (it’s like a bus or jeepney, it literally means two rows) and figuring out where it will stop. In time I will figure out where to get to where. I will be ok! Aja Aja Fighting!!!!
Anyway… the advantage of being in Thailand is the popularity of Kpop and everything Korean! Wohoo… Sungkyungkwan Scandal is even on TV. But it’s dubbed in Thai so boo… While roaming around the city, I found some Super Junior ads..
Siwon for Acer… (I saw the same ad but I couldn’t take a pic, but it looks like this)
Donghae for Maxim… I saw the cardboard life size cut out.. but it was on the street so I didn’t take a pic..
Kyuhyun and Donghae for deodorant… I was buying my cellphone sim when I saw a tarp across the street.. this picture I took but it’s not so clear..
There are other Kpop artists here too like CN Blue and 2NE1.
And another is MA-RI-O (as in Mario Maurer)… I wrote it the way my cousin said it… He is very very very popular here.. I will be watching out for that.. Oh if only I knew how to speak and read and understand Thai. Can someone teach me a few words??
I am starting to love the Thai entertainment industry. It’s funny that it’s so underrated. Bu t listening to the songs on the radio while my Aah (aunt) is driving, I’m starting to like it. So maybe soon I will be developing a love for this kind of music.
So that’s the end of this post and I will be posting as much as I can, this time from Thailand!!!
