On our second day in Thailand, we woke up early to go boating. It was so cold that morning so I wore my floral blazer to keep me warm.
While on the boat, we got to see some of Thailand’s great architecture. And of course, I just had to take some photos of it despite the rockiness of the boat and minor splashing of the water. I was so scared to get my baby wet so some shots are not as good as what I would’ve liked.
at the end of our route, our tour guide bought some funny smelling bread from merchant on a boat so that we could feed the fish.
After the river boat ride, we then proceed to a looooong drive to pattaya. It was still so early, so a 2 hour drive sounds good to us. That way, we can sleep and rest which is exactly what we did! haha
I took these during the pit stop :)
We arrived at our next itenerary 2 hours later. And surprise, surprise, We’re at the zoo! We first ate lunch (thai and chinese food, anyone?) and proceed to do some fun zoo activities!
You probably saw the post on tumblr, the one with the depressed mommy tiger because her babies died and the zoo people wrapped piglets with tiger printed cloth and gave those pigs to replace the tigers baby?
Well, I saw several of those in this zoo :)
And look, here’s a mommy pig with a little tiger! so cute!!!
And apparently, it is so common in this zoo. Like, omnivore and carnivore living together in peace kind of thing!
We also played this game with a long pellet gun. All we have to do is shoot the bull’s eye and when we do, the small box of food will open up and feed the tigers!
A cute tiger waiting for food! Heehee <3
After wandering around, and since there’s nothing much left for us to do there, we felt tired so we left for our next destination. Then suddenly, I remembered that I was supposed to ride the elephant at the zoo! I was so sad I thought I missed the opportunity! But our guide assured us that there’s plenty of opportunities to ride the elephant in Pattaya and he was right! We just arrived at out next stop!
YEY for elephant ride!!
The location was so beautiful! It was near the beach so while riding the elephant, you can snap away at the cinematic view :)
and needless to say, that’s exactly what I did because silly me forgot to left my camera to my mom so she could take photos of us. haha
But our “driver” was kind enough to take our photos at the middle of the “trip”
After one point, he even told me to sit ON the elephant! At first, I really didn’t want to because the elephant’s neck was so hairy! And I was wearing shorts so imagine those hairs “poking” your skin! Also, the hair is thick and kind of hard. Its like those plastic thingies where they put the tags on a brand new shirt. (okaay, off topic) But, I finally gave in. Awkward pose:
After that elephant ride (which my mom recorded via her phone) we then proceed to our next stop which was the floating pattaya market :)
We shopped for a while but we were getting really tired so… we just took photos of each other while waiting for my mom who’s (at that time) was not yet done shopping! But after a few minutes, she came and we fled to our last stop.
Look at my haggard face after shopping >_<
We finally got to our hotel! yey :) This was supposed to be the location of my outfit shot but when we reviewed the photos, it was all blur and this is the only shot that is acceptable.
And as for my outfit shots, I settled inside our hotel room:
I’ll post our night shopping trip in another entry!
anyway, have a great weekend! :)
