Weekend Snapshot: Trouble in Paradise

Political protests at the Victory Monument were called off during Songkran (Thai New Year). However, while people were chucking water on each other, armed soldiers were still walking about, grim-faced and vigilant. There is trouble in paradise. But my friends and I decided that the Red Shirts could protest all they want; we have our own lives to entertain. Off we trooped to Dream World.


"Make love, not war"


Hanging nests and a friendly log to cross in 2-inch heels.





I wonder if those soldiers would stop looking dismal if these flowers were placed alongside their machine guns....


Tomatoes and chillis at the Australian Farm.



Our kids loved it here because the entire garden is air-conditioned.




Enjoying the holidays is no denial of the issue raging on in government. We simply chose to have a date with beauty and be happy about it rather than sit nervous and worried in front of the TV.

Have a great week, everyone!

Zel, the swans inthe fountain reminded me of Enchanted Ella movie. So now i know who is the girl swan in there. I wish cows can do that too or even dogs so that i know it's a girl or male. lol! So cute. This is such a nice place to visit and roam around.
