so how do u hail a tuk-tuk down the street in Bangkok?
according to JS...u just raise ur hand and yell "TUUUUKKKK"
just like how u address DATUKKKKK
we were at the famous Chinatown indulging in shark's fin and birds nest
and JS decided to inject some adventure towards the end of the evening with a tuk-tuk ride
I was huggin my stomach from all the food and FOOD and FOOD
so adventure is the last thing on my mind :P
Monkey managed a bleak smile for the photographer
yeah a tuk-tuk can really speed, cornered into all the short cuts
entered into any small lanes he wanted
and even u-turned on the main street full of traffics when he decided he wanna u-turn
the only consoling thing about this tuk-tuk was my favourite Doraemon on its roof
somehow it gave a sense of happiness
GAHHHH being squeezed in the middle of the traffic is no fun!!!
it felt like we were speeding but then cars were over-taking us left and right
and my hair were flying like a broom~~~~~~
no difference fr riding on a bike :P
when we were about to arrive at the hotel
"do u think the security guard will let us in? is this the first tuk-tuk to enter the hotel-yard?"
JS: "dun worry....all tourists do the same thing and it's a novelty to ride a tuk-tuk kay?"
true enuff.....the blarring loud engine POUP-POUP-POUP soon roared into the beautiful court yard of our hotel.....
I think even the lovely jasmine trees would have died-ed fr its exos
Monkey wanted to hop straight out....instead the lovely staffssssSSSSssss came to us
with no doors to open, they just "wai" = hands clasped together and a slight bow,
greeted us with names and offered to help Monkey to get out
aisehhhhh paiseh paiseh!!!!!
true enuff it was a novelty....coz tuk-tuk ride usually cost more than a taxi ride
so pls do bargain before u hop on.
it wasn't my first ride....somehow each time feels so surreal....hehehehehe
