Grand Palace, Bangkok – For the 2nd time around

The last time I visited Grand Palace in Bangkok was April 2003, that was more than five years ago.  That was the time I bought my first Samsung digital camera at the Dubai International Airport Duty Free and guess how big the megapixel is?  It’s a whopping 1.6MB hahaha….  Well, during that period only few people have digital cameras and I’m proud to be one of them. 

I went there October 14, 2008 and that day was a special day, woke up with a smile hahaha…. After I had lunch in Mali Restaurant I went to the Grand Palace for a visit.  Just an advice for the first time visitors of this country, make sure you visit this place, you won’t regret.  History always speaks for itself.

Apple Store now in Philippines

I received an email from Apple today and I was surprised that there’s an Apple Store in Philippines Apple Online Store.  Woohoo!!!

 

I started using Macbook months ago and I’m really excited that they now ship Apple products in Philippines and the catch is the shipping is free when you order more than PHP 3,000.00.  Another thing is if you are an eligible student or a teacher you can get discounts on Apple products.

 

 

A while ago I tried to compare the price of the Apple Online Store and JR.com where I ordered my Macbook.  I looked at the price of iMac 24” which I am planning to buy for my room and a difference of $47.00 that you’ll pay extra when you order through Apple store and have it delivered in the Philippines.

 

Not bad at least I don’t have to carry it from Dubai to Philippines. 🙂

 

 

The Mali Restaurant in Bangkok

October 14, 2008:  It was not my first time in this restaurant, earlier that day I had breakfast with Will who I’ve met the night before in some bar in Bangkok.  Since he’s familiar with the place, I asked him if he knew good restaurants in Bangkok and he recommended me The Mali Restaurant.  Before we parted ways that night, he invited me to have breakfast with him in that restaurant.

While having breakfast, I found out that Will happened to be working with the same company that I’ve been working for the past 4 years.  He’s in Thailand for his scheduled vacation, so was I.  What a small world eh?  Anyway before I get side tracked again with my story about Mali Restaurant, later that day I went back to Mali to have lunch and try their Tom-Yum Soup (my favorite Thai dish).
