I know, i’m running a bit late with the blog updates, but sometimes, when travelling is good, you tend to live rather than writing about life.
Trains and buses were so fully booked because of the new Year and the Ko Phan Gan’s full moon party, than it literally took a week before i could jump on a train back to Malaysia. Luckily i’ve got a ticket to travel on the night of the 31st, so i did’nt feel guilty of not partying hard enough !!!
Few minutes after the train left Hualampong station, i was already missing Bangkok, but at the same time i was excited at the idea of getting back to KL. A busy month of gigs was awaiting, plus a lot of old friends to see, so i was definitely happy to be on the road again.
When you are used to Indian trains, a 16 hours journey on a Thai one is like a week on a resort at the Maldives. In the late afternoon, someone will come to prepare your bed for the night, with clean linens and air conditioned. Of course the food is always a good deal in Thailand, so as soon as the darkness came down i moved to the restaurant coach to enjoy the New Years Eve in complete solitude.
Sometimes i like to drink alone: i like to observe the effects of the alcohol on the mind and the way it affects the flow of your thoughts. Someone once said “..drink because you’re happy, but never because you’re miserable..!”. Well, i find it being a clever advice..!
