Olympia 1st Trip to Thailand

Dear Olympia, your 1st overseas holiday was to Bangkok, Thailand. Papa & Mama wanted to bring you there to give thanks and also to let you meet our Thai family. Everyone loves you to the max! Blessed with all the love, we hope you will grow up well.

The trip started out really well when the good folks at Changi Airport decided to give you a Patrick soft toy!

You were really well behaved during both legs of the flight! Or should we say, throughout the whole trip!?

Giving thanks to Phra phrom at Erwan Shine. Thank you for everything.

Thank you to P'Nuch for driving us all the way from Bangkok to Wat Sothon.

Wat Sothon Wararam was built in the late Ayutthaya Period during the reign of King Narai the Great, with its original name being Wat Hong. The temple houses Phra Phutthasothon, a much-revered Buddha image of Chachoengsao created by a craftsman from Lanchang. The image sits in the meditation position and is 1.65 meters in width and 1.48 meters in height.

Legend has it that three Buddha images were floating down a river. The first image was found on the Mae Klong River, placed at Wat Phet Samut and named Luangpho Ban Laem. The second image, Luangpho Sothon, was placed at Wat Hong or currently known as Wat Sothon Wararam. The last image, Luangpho To, was placed at Wat Bang Phli Yai Nai or also called Wat Phlapphla Chai Chana Songkhram.

And the must-visit-to-make-merit temple for us - Wat Arun. A very hot day!

Your 1st visit to Chatuchak market! 1 of our favourite markets!

And you surprised us by swimming 4 laps back at the hotel swimming pool! Woo Hoo~~~!!!

What's a visit to Thailand without taking the Tuk Tuk?! Here's your 1st ride on a Tuk Tuk!

Despite the scorching weather, you didn't fuss as much as we were expecting. Maybe it's because of the temples we visited, maybe it's because of the number of ice packs your mum had prepared or maybe you were being cooperative with us or maybe your parents are just so cool.

Whatever it was, you are really a sweetie to behave so well during the whole trip. More trips to come!

For this very reason we keep numbers low, six is about the maximum we’re comfortable taking to allow each and every rider our personal
