West Kalimantan Rainforest

    I’m going to write about what was probably the most exciting three days of my entire life. I was only about seven, though, so forgive me if I can’t remember every single detail.
    We were on a trip to Indonesia to see my cousins because after weeks of begging from my sister and I my parents had finally relented. To add to our excitement, my parents were also taking us to the jungle with our cousins and grandma! Imagine our excitement when we heard this wonderful news.
    Anyways, there we were, bubbling with excitement when it was finally that exciting day.  The journey to the jungle wasn’t the most enjoyable, but I was too excited to care.  As we were in quite a rural place, we had to sit in a truck, and half of us had to sit where they normally put bags, so they didn’t have any seat belts or even seats!
    When we got over to the jungle, we first ate in a small sort-of restaurant, before meeting our guide. There was also a family with ten cats there, and they asked for a photo with us because they never got visitors from foreign countries. I felt like a celebrity!
    Finally, we began our adventure into a magical world of beautiful and deadly plants and animals. As there weren’t any paths or signs, we needed to stay close to our guide on the way to our hut. On the way, I began to feel a bit dizzy from the heat and dehydration. Luckily, my parents noticed and quickly got me water before I fainted. After that I was fine and able to enjoy the experience again.
    Soon, we made it over to the hut with much difficulty. Glancing over at the hut, I was shocked to see it was nothing more than a dirt floor with a wooden roof and a higher sleeping level. To add to my surprise, the only way to get over to the toilet was to cross over a small stream, using some sticks as a bridge!  However, I was soon excited again when I saw there was a fishing net and some shrimp in the stream.
    Immediately, I asked if we could start exploring, but my parents said we had to go to sleep and that we could wake up early the next morning. Grumpily, I agreed, but only because it would give me time to try to catch shrimp, and maybe have a swim in the stream. Sadly, I completely failed at catching shrimp, and my cousin couldn’t catch any either. Determined to catch at least one, we asked our guide to show us how. We were shocked to see him fill up most of the net with just one try. Quickly, we asked our parents if we could cook and eat them like real explorers, but they said we weren’t allowed.

    The next morning, I was woken up early by all the animals in the jungle forming one great big alarm together.  Grouchily I got out of my sleeping bag and got dressed. Breakfast was some sort of noodles with vegetables, but it had onions, which I absolutely hate, so I ate barely any of it.
    Finally we were ready to go exploring. Even as we barely stepped out of the hut I greeted by colourful birds, a bat and I tried a banana off a banana tree. Further on, I spotted a massive poisonous centipede, a gibbon swinging in the trees and a sleeping poisonous snake which I nearly stepped on.  All the while, I felt an amazing thrill of adventure. After a while, we came to the top of the jungle, and were met with an amazing view of everything below us.

    By then, it was getting quite late, so we began to trek our way back down to the hut. Before bed, we walked around the hut one more time to check for animals, and were lucky enough to spot a chameleon! We watched as it changed from green to brown as it moved around. That night everyone was surprised to a leech somewhere on their body. Luckily, for some reason I didn’t get a leech on me.

    The next day it was time to leave this magical world behind, so I got up early to see a few more animals first. Happily, I was able to spot some red leaf monkeys, gibbons, an orangutan nest and a gigantic purple centipede. We also had a swim in the stream on the way back and played in a waterfall. Sadly, we had to leave then, so that was the end of my magical and exciting adventure into the jungle.

     Ayuttaya is part of the history of Thailand. Ayuttaya was the capital city of Thailand,but then Burma took the city and destroyed it. Now bangkok is the capital of Thailand. All left of Ayuttaya is the ruins. Some of the ruins are more that 1000 years old.
     Ayuttaya has every section of their important county's. There were also the island of Portugal.
     There was a church wich had dead people in it, they died because of some kind of sickness. there were 49 people in the church. There were some ruins there too.
     There was a part that everybody went too, is the budah's wich was coverd with roots.

My Auntie is here!

     My auntie loves exploring. Next month my auntie will go to Singapore. Maybe she's going to America next year! Sometimes she hates to walk in the heat. A month ago my auntie went to bangkok to visit us.
    Bangkok is where I live. It's the best place I ever bin to because it is lovely and clean. Thai people loves to smile to each other. I call Thailand the land of smiles. I think bangkok is the hottest city in the world because of the factories and construction.
    My mother wants my auntie to go dancing with her friends so I cannot pick my auntie. At about 10 at night I heard somebody in my room. I took a peak and I saw my auntie sleeping beside me.
    Wat Po is a second tourist place. They have many old buildings. The buildings are at least 100 years old. Wat Po is by the river.
     After we went on the temple we didn't know what to do next, so we went to the river at the last stop we went out and went to terminal 21,it a wonderful mall!
    The next day we went to Jim Thomson's house. It's a traditional Thai house and a story of this man that lost his way in Malaysia.
    The way you make silk is you find Couon's and boil them and get the string and make clothes for us. Jim loved decorating clothes.
      The best area to go shopping is Siam. There are a lot
of malls there like central world or Siam paragon. If you want to buy cheap clothes go to MBK or Platinum mall. If you want to go to movies go to Central World.
       My auntie is going to go home. She is going to the air port. The easy way to go there is by taxi and bus that goes strait there. Let the taxi go by highway. Don't forger to go 1 hour early!
      I feel scared when my fun ended, just like my auntie going home. I don't like when I'm scared, I feel like crying. Well bye-bye fun and auntie.

Jim Thomson's House

Jim Thomson's house is buried with a story. The story now is very popular in the house of Jim Thomson. Jim Thomson worked as an officer in the U.S.A. Army,after a few years, he was sent to Bangkok to do some work. He loved Bangkok because of the beautiful culture and the tradition. After a few years he decided to live in Bangkok for the rest of hes life. He made a beautiful Thai house. On 1967 he was lost in the high lands of Malaysia. Now, many people is still trying to find his body.

You can go to Jim Thomson's house in many ways Example:By Taxi, By BTS or in many other ways. I think its a better way to go by the long way. The long way is by boat and its much more fun going that way.

I like how they make silk its very cool way because there is many steps to make silk. First boil the cocoons, second get the string out of the cocoons third sew the stings into cloth. The bad things about making silk is that it kills silk worms, and it cannot turn into beautiful butterfly's

Adventures in Bangkok

My Auntie My auntie loves exploring with my family. She had been everywhere! She had gone to Bangkok. Maybe next month she will to Singapore. Maybe she will go to Europe next year. She likes to explore but she does not like to walk. Bangkok
Few days ago my auntie came to Bangkok and stayed with us for 3 days. Bangkok is where I live. I like Bangkok because it’s very clean. Thai people love to smile. Sometimes I like to call Thailand “land of smile”. Pollution is the bad thing about Bangkok. It makes the city very hot! Finally came! My mother wants my auntie to go dancing with her. Now, I cannot pick her up. At the airport at about 11p.m, I heard some noise in my room so I peaked a little and I saw my auntie unpacking her P.Js, a few minutes later I saw her sleeping besides me. I was so happy that she was here! I was so sleepy that I feel back asleep. Wat Pho! Many people went to Wat Pho. They go there because they want to see the lying down Buddha. .They want to see the l’t because it is big and Buddhist can pray there. The temple has lots of old buildings that are more than 100 years old! The temple is placed by the river, the rivers name is Chao Phraya River.
Terminal 21 (ASOK) After we went to Wat Pho we didn’t know what to do, so we went to the boat. At the last stop we went out. Then we went on a taxi to go to Terminal 21. She said we could check things there like the different kind of toilets and the shops there. My auntie loves to shop, but my mother said it’s too expensive there. Jim Thompson’s House The next day we went to drop of my sister then we went to Jim Thomson’s House. We went there by B.T.S. then took the Jim Thomson’s mini bus. We bought tickets at the counter; the ticket had a story of Jim Thomson. It said “he was an officer at the army of U.S.A. Then he was sent to Bangkok to live there. He loved the culture and the language so he made a traditional house of Thailand. In March 26 1967 he went to Malaysia to visit the forest then he was lost and never found again”.
He made and designed beautiful silk. This is the way he made silk. Get the cocoons and boil them. He made silk after he boil them. He loved designing things like silk. Best Sopping place is in Siam. There are lots of malls there. If you want to buy cheap clothes go to Platinum. If you want to watch movies go to central world. If you want to buy traditional clothes go to stores by platinum. My auntie is going back to go Indonesia by plane. We were going by taxi to the airport, and dropping my auntie there. You must go by High way. You must pay 45 baht. Tip : And go earlier!

Amazing Koh Chang

Introduction Koh Chang means elephant island in Thai. Its a very good place for holidays or Adventures. If you have friends or your family that could come, they would like the activities there. If you are alone it would be a very relaxing place for fun. Activities
There are totally many things you could do there. You could go swimming in the sea, riding on elephants, swimming in waterfalls, hiking in mountains and more stuff to do. You could do anything. You should not stay at your resort or hotel siting around and watching TV, go on a adventure!
Transportation From Bangkok to Koh Chang is an adventure. Get the bus in Ekamai bus station to Trat then take a mini bus to the ferry then take the ferry to koh Chang island! Don't worry about walking in the dark forest at night, there will be many bus-taxis every few minutes every where. Yes, going to the island is a total mess because the bus takes along time (about 5 hours) and some people cannot speak or undrestand Thai . There is a long line of transportation waiting for you.
Hope you like Koh Chang when you visit there!
