DIY Hanging Art Piece

I haven’t done some DIY for a while now because I’ve been catching up with work and spending the Saturdays catching up with sleep and rest. But, it’s almost Christmas and I always love the holidays and I know family and friends would be visiting our tiny home, so I decided to work on the home projects that have remained pending for so long. One of those home projects is to hang back our art and get a centerpiece “art.”

Lanna Folklife Museum, Chiang Mai

Our introduction to Chiang Mai came in the form of a museum. Come to think of it, this was the only museum we visited in our Thailand trip, and we were only compelled to do this because a local, Joy, the owner of our guesthouse, recommended we make such a visit. We had time to burn while waiting for our 2PM check-in time and Joy suggested we visit the Lanna Folklike Museum, which was just one big block away from the guesthouse.

Where to Stay in Chiang Mai: Baan Ploy-in via AirBnB

Chiang Mai is a city bursting with tourists (but not in an overrated way). The city does its tourism management so well that, despite knowing there are many tourists, it did not feel crowded at all. Because Chiang Mai attracts millions of tourists in any given year, finding accommodation is not difficult. But choosing the right for us proved more difficult than anticipated because there were so many to choose from!

Pista in Phitsanulok

Phitsanulok is somewhere between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. It is a small city, but I have heard of it already because Joel’s aunt lived and worked there and their family has stories and memories of the city. We never got to explore much of the city but we did have some “stopover” hours on our way to Chiang Mai, and there are two things we would go back for — friend chicken and Pista Cafe!

Aboard the Midnight Train to Chiang Mai

Joel and I have been wanting to visit Chiang Mai for the longest time. We have been hearing of the beauty of the place from Joel’s family. His aunt and her family have lived there for about a decade and has been constantly inviting us to visit. Finally, last year, we decided to give it a go. Our journey to Chiang Mai took years to plan and took 12 hours to complete.

DIY Travel Guide to Sukhothai

During our trip to Thailand, I was determined to visit the two most popular UNESCO World Heritage sites because they were accessible by different modes of transportation. Having already explored Ayutthaya with my siblings and husband, only Sukhothai remains on my to-check out list. After a week exploring Bangkok, on a Saturday morning, my husband and I ate our last breakfast at the Station Cafe, checked out, and took the earliest special express train to Phitsanulok.

Guide to Bangkok’s Chinatown

Bangkok’s Chinatown is the largest Chinatown in the world. Bangkok’s Chinatown is like a city within a city. We attempted to cover all of Chinatown, but three days is just not enough. I realized that when you come to Bangkok’s Chinatown, you must have a purpose and must know the exact location of that purpose. Otherwise, you’ll end up lost, although we didn’t mind for there are sights to see, treasures to discover, including gold, and lots of gold, and delicious food to eat in every corner.
