Bangkok Day 2 of 4 (Part 1)

On day 2, we met up with Nuch. Our best Thai friend. She was so excited in showing us her hometown - Nakhon Pathom Province.

First stop, she brought us to Wat Phra Pathom Chedi Ratchaworaviharn.Wat Phra Pathom Chedi Ratchaworaviharn is one of the main royal temple. Belonging to this temple is the Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest pagoda in the world.

My wife and me outside the temple.

The locals believe when your wishes come true in this temple, you must return thanks to Buddha in the form of red eggs. Arn't we lucky? When we reach the entrance of the temple, we saw a truck filled with boxes of red eggs. And the lucky man gave each of us a red egg for good luck. Huat ah! =)

Inside the temple,we found peace with the Reclining Buddha

Making donations to the monks. There are 100 bowls. =)

Nuch told us this is the art of miracle. The tree grows through the rocks.

After the temple visit, Nuch brought us to an award wining restaurant.

They serve 1 of the best chicken rice and roast meat rice. Oh, did I mention they serve delicious satay @ just 3baht per stick? Aroy maak maak!

When the wife visits the local wet market, you know, she loves you. =)

Trying out some of the local roadside stall food...

Next stop, a famous restaurant where they serve Volcano Prawns. Yes, Volcano Prawns! heee...

The "Sua-Gu" Singaporean who have never seen a volcano before. (*Sua gu: country bumpkin)

Fresh and big prawns!

Tom Yum soup with real fire!

The all famous thai fried rice.

Green curry!

Comedian Jerry trying to impress our host with my Coca Cola pouring skills... Hee...

After a hearty lunch, Nuch drove us to her village for a tour around their farms.....

Their provision shops. Retro. Remind us of our old good kampung days. 

At the farm.. It was a hot and humid day yet they still welcome us with laughters.

Enjoying my time at the farm...

Cutting the weeds

My wife was worried that I might cut myself so ask me to put my hands behind me.. <3

Love the sun, the clouds and the farm.

Look at the big farm behind me! =)

Trying fruits from the tree! =)

My wife and Nuch. Outstanding wife who didn't complaint about the scorching sun.

Cucumber Farm was up next!

Up next, Fish farm, Kampung & flying ice cream!! =D
