My Birthday Treat (Part 2 of 3)

The next day at Ayuthaya, we hired a ‘taxi’ and it was actually a motored ‘Trishaw’ that came (that’s their taxi) :D Although I am afraid of sunlight but I am more then happy to get on it coz Angel gets so excited sitting on it and wow … it was such an unforgettable experience as the weather is just nice during this period of time. We visited a few ancient ruins and magnificent historical temples (it’s not those that we normally saw in Malaysia, it’s more like a historical castle with magnificent architectural build and scale) and they looks so special. After some tiring tours, we headed for our lunch to try their local famous dish, the ‘boat noodle’. It taste really nice, the soup was something I never tested before, like a mixture between tom yum and sweet soup + a bit of chili. Angel got herself a bowl of clear soup vermicelli as well. After our lunch, we headed back to the hotel for Angel’s afternoon naps and in the evening, after touring more temples and around the town, we headed for another floating restaurant somewhere (forgot the name) and the food was superb (500+B). The night market we intended to go did not open that night so finally we went to another smaller night market and bought something there before headed back to the hotel again. However when I am taking my bath, suddenly I heard a bang and Angel’s crying sound, after rushing out from the bathroom, hubby told me Angel was jumping on our bed and fall hard onto the carpet floor face down. OMG ….. but I am so thankful that she is alright because she start doing the jumping again 5 minutes later :( Kids ….. but this time I make sure hubby is paying full attention to her.

What was Angel drinking in the second photo?

She looked cute with the sunglasses.

By the way, is it the first time that you bring Angel for vacation? You all went there by flight? How was Angel behaved in the flight? :-)

Esmeralda said...

Angel is so cute with a big round eyes lar... cool sunglasses!

Kids... they fall, and they kept repeating their 'mistakes'.. luckily the floor was carpeted and not just cement, otherwise I can't imagine what will happen to Angel's pretty face!

Did Angel enjoy the trip? Looks like she's enjoying ya...

Bonnie said...

Sounds like a great trip.. Angel looks cute with glasses.. Ha, kids are always kids..I guess you will more worry if she suddenly just keep quient and doesnt active at all..

Look forward with part 3..

Serene said...

Angel looks so cute with the sunglasses. Oh.. the dishes makes me hungry already!

MommyAngel said...

JT, Oh .. that one is actually COKE!!! Hahaha …. She didn’t like it that much though, just few sip then she don’t want anymore. The ‘cup’ they use is so traditional hor …. love the experience to drink from the metal cup again la :)
-Yes, first time bring Angel for a real vacation although she follow me and hubby outstation most of the time, but that’s not a real vacation la.
-Oh … on flight she is the worst kid on board!! Crying and cranky all the time …. Until all the passenger on board will recognized her and ask her to behave!!! Hahaha …. Of course she cried even more la …. She just can’t sit still in one place la so it’s a bit tough to handle her on board actually, but no choice :) Me and hubby used to it already.

Esmeralda, I love the sunglasses too :) yes … I am so so so so glad that Angel is alright and the carpet did helps a bit coz it’s really thick!! Sometimes I do not dare to let hubby taking care of Angel alone it’s because 5 out of 10 times, she will hurt herself. He is always so careless but that’s him :)

Bonnie, ya … it’s a great trip, not that the scenery is fabulous but the ‘feel’ is right and we are not following tour group where we have to go according to schedule and confine is a bus with the rest. This trip is just nice, short, relax and the weather around this time is breezy with sunshine :) Ya, you are right, sometimes if they keep quite then we will be more worried but when they gets to naughty and hurt themselves, we will be worry too but just need to keep an eye on them all the time lah :)

Serene, the dish are super nice, spicy but not too spicy!!! But not the soup … it taste so weird (it’s not tom yum) …… so finally hubby drink all of it. I even feel like throwing up even from the smell of it far away on the other side of the table! LoL

Esmeralda said...

Caroline, same here. If hubby were to take care of him, sometimes he will not realised that Ashton has gone to search for me, knocking on the bathroom door (while I was taking my shower).. *sweat*

the little prince said...

Wah...nice trip..lucky with the nice weather...Great that little Angel enjoy...like her sunglasses...cute with her big big round eyes...:-)

Can't imagine if my boy cranky on board..that's why my hubby still hold on the plan for flight to vacation...'sigh'....

LittleLamb said...

Angel is ok with Bangkok food?
I rejected an offer to go to Balibecause I am afraid I cant get "proper" food for philip.

Happy Birthday Caroline :)

Natalia said...

Angel is so cute with the sunglasses!! Can I keep this photo?? She is so CUTE!

Is that spicy-looked soup the "boat noodle" you mentioned??

Nice trip..

Mummy Moon said...

Overall how was the trip??? I never been to this place before, but I love Thailand, like the food, culture and shopping there..

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, because I used to shower with my door ‘unlock’ so sometimes when hubby take care of Angel, I will also suddenly frighten by Angel standing at the door site staring at me LoL

Yugene, oh ….. I think bb Kyle will be ok and not naughty as my Angel la. You try la coz even you bring him up to Genting also no problem right? My girl even I brought her out kai kai sometimes will also be cranky on the car especially when the car in stuck in a jam *pengsan*. If Kyle behave in the car then mostly should be no problem :)

Rachel, oh …. Next time don’t’ reject the offer leh coz holiday is ‘larger then the sky’ (as per Cantonese says :P :P Angel is ok with the food because we even brought her cereal with us (just in case la). Then now she can eat rice already so sometimes just order something not spicy for her lo and she is ok. If got vermicelli then I will normally order her a clear soup for her. Of course have to be choosy against the restaurant la but so far so good. Short period of time should be ok and then we travel by ourselves so more flexible about food, if follow tour group then a bit susah la. Thanks for the birthday wish dear :)

Natalia, hahaha ….. kids are always cute with sunglasses don’t they? Get one for Daniel and sure he will look so smart too :) Errmm … how to keep the photo ah? Hahaha …
- oh, the boat noddle is the 2nd picture with some ‘char sau’ on top, the 3rd picture is the soup which I said smells and tastes so horrible ….. :P

Mummy Moon, overall ah, maybe the weather is cold here so it’s ok for us to travel lo, the place looks very poor with a lot of ancient ruins and Buddha statue lo, looks not so nice when you looking at it but when taking pictures turn out to be nice leh ….. overall it’s ok ok la. Not highly recommended though but if you like those I have mention then worth coming lo. Ya … I love eveyrthning about Thailand too especially the people here (apart from that stupid driver and his ‘gang’ la) hahaha

Esmeralda said...

Aiyor.. so dangerous ah. Luckily Angel won't go in the bathroom. If Ashton, he will go in that, that's why when I wanna take shower and when his dad is not around, I just put him in the bb cot, and quickly take my shower.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ok, the drink is Coke. Yalor so traditional one using the metal cup, maybe it can helps to keep the drink cold.
- I think it is a good experience by bringing our lil one to real vacation. At least we will know how do they behaved and what can we do the next time to prevent they behaved notty again.

Kristie said...

caroline, i love love love thai food!!!! i've tried most of their food :)

angel looked so cool with her sunglasses!

Joanne ~ said...

Angel look so cool with her sunglasses ya, like big gal :)

the foods look so delicious too...

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, oh ... my fault, actually Angel did went in and stand beside the bath tub :) But will Ashton be crying if you put him into his cot??? Angel sure will shout and cry her lungs out so normally I will not take bath until she sleeps if hubby was not around.

JT, so when is your turn to bring Sarah out? I think she is much obedient then Angel leh. Angel is one 'exceptional' case coz I seldom see other kids behave like her, shouting and making fuss all the time but I guess that's her la :)

Kristie, so I guess you like spicy food?? The food in Thailand can be very spicy until your entire mouth are numb!!! So 'SPICY HOT'!!!!

Joanne, ya ... most of thier food if they cut down the chili will be very nice for me or else, I think I can't feel the taste anymore after my tougue was all over with the taste of chili :P

Esmeralda said...

Haha... Of course Ashton will cry when I put him inside the bb cot. So usually I'll switch on his fav DVD before putting him in there.. but this only last for 5 mins, so after this, he will starts getting cranky & cry.. Well, I don't bother bout him lar, just let him cry a while.. Bad mummy ya!

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, same here ... but Angel knows how to climb out from her crib leh using her feet to grip on the bars and push herself out ... sigh!!! It's really dangerous if I were to put her in her crib now and I hope Ashton has not 'learn' this trick yet :)

Esmeralda said...

Caroline, I would say "too bad" that Ashton's crib dun have the steps for him to climb on and get himself out of it (*relieved*)... Yup, u have to watch Angel more carefully if her crib has the steps..

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, oh … Angel’s crib also don’t have steps one …. But it got vertical bars, so Angel used her feet grip onto those bars tightly and pushed herself up while holding to the vertical bar like a monkey, hahaha …. Hope you get the picture of what I mean ya :) So you can see how naughty she is …. But my mom said I does that when I was much younger too but not my brother. That’s why I always ‘free’ to wonder around the house coz too dangerous to keep me in the crib while my bro always ‘kurung’ inside the crib, hahaha :P

Esmeralda said...

"Like mummy, like daughter"...

Haha.. I get it Caroline... Luckily Ashton's cot is the modern type that doesn't have any bars, as I believe if it has bars, he will do the same like Angel. Sometimes he even tried to climb up by putting his feet 'thru' the mesh wall, but of coz, he can't manage to push himself up. But there's once he climbed on his drum (which I've forgotten that I've left inside the cot) and try to jump out. Luckily I was there when he did his stunt! We both have really naughty monkeys I believe!

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, hahaha .... yeah Monkeys :) Oh ... yours is the play pen type ah? That's good leh :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hehe, actually all this while I very wish to bring Sarah to travel, but I just afraid that she will be notty. Infact, she is a notty girl..

- I think Angel has her "special" talent..that why she is special..hehe.

MommyAngel said...

JT, I think as long as she is 'naughty' but not cranky it's ok leh ..... :) As Angel is naughty and cranky at the same time and we both also manage to bring her along where ever we go so :) Hehehe
