2009.08.13 Bangkok Safari & Marine Park

Before visiting the Safari Park,
the ancient turtle took us to a buffet lunch, that was better than any other place he ever took us to...but still not that fabulous ;p
here's the Safari Park,
we missed most of the show and end up only went to the bird show,
i really wanted to see the thai boxing monkey show though =((
a creepy looking model of floating market...haha
i always think that hippo is cute ;))
when hubby took picture of those croco, i though that they were fake...
until i saw the one in the back slowly crawled away...omg...they always act like they were dead!! how dangerous...
this man almost got eaten by the croco!! course it was fake... XD~ but i think it was rather funny how they put this doll up there

hubby flirting around, but the ladies seems to be unhappy ;p
i feel bad for this polar bear, even that they spray a lot of cool mist on his cave, it was super hot and humid there
this part is really cool, where we can enter the glass house that located in the middle of the tiger's cage. we were so close to them that we can smell the pee...
i was volunteering at the bird show,
we attract the bird with money!! haha...that's the new bait ;))
I never know that there was Grey flamingos!! 0_O"
feeding the baby tiger, he was so hungry (and skinny)!!
on the way out
then the tour guide took us to drive around the outdoor safari,
this suicidal deer was standing in the middle of the street...
and didn't care to move even that we were getting

2009.08.13 Wat Phra Kaew - Emerald Buddha, and The Grand Palace

The Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple were located on the same site

the white wall surrounding the location
when visiting this location,
visitor need to wear appropriate clothes, long pants for man,
and sexy clothes for the ladies.
but if you don't have those clothes with you, you can always borrow them for free
hubby with his rental pants... XD~
the entrance were so crowded by the visitors
endless decorative murals along the wall,
i especially like the details they put on the costumes
pink lotus for praying
the architecture on the entrance of the temple was amazingly beautiful
the guide told us that these are 3 different types of architecture of 3 different countries
Inside the temple, it was dominated with gold color,
very regal ;))
thanks to the rental clothes, we looked like a happy farmers couple
I love those elephants, so lovely ;D

with the model of Angkor Wat,
i really wish to visit the real one someday ;))
the colored-mirror decoration was really almost feel like Christmas ;p
supported by the demons and the monkeys,
do you know which one are they??
ok, so the demons were wearing shoes,
and the monkeys were in bare feet
The Murals of Ramayana epic story along the wall
this guy was doing some renovation on the chipped paints,
i was jealous because he had a fan to cooling him hot over there!!
this is where they keep the Emerald Buddha
you can enter the room and pray, but not allowed to take any picture,
the Emerald Buddha was much smaller than i though it would be...
(thi picture taken from outside)
eventually, they will dress the Buddha differently according to the season,
the clothes were made out of gold
outside the room
...and now we are walking toward the Grand Palace
this building was inside a locked gate,
and they still use this for hosting the royal guests
there were a lot of Chinese-like decoration along the way
the connected gate to the Grand Palace
this stage uses by the King to climbs up to the elephant's back
inside the palace,
western influenced building with traditional roof
the traditional weapons from ancient time
the changing shift of the guards
more view from the palace
fresh graduated students taking cute picture
very interesting bouquet made out of money...
i want this on my graduation too!! XD~
outside, waiting for our van
