I was really so tired from the trip coming from Iloilo. I had to line-up for so long at the check-in going to Bangkok. NAIA 1 is a very strange place. Everything seems to be functioning and working yet it's not efficient. Good thing the plane ride to Bangkok was painless. I even had a special meal because I'm vegetarian. I love Thai Airways! I practically wiped out their supply of apple juice (my new drink obsession). I kept asking for refill.hehehe
The trip going to Seam Reap from Bangkok was also nice. It's the waiting that will get you. I was really stressed for no apparent reason except that I didn't had a wink the night before maybe because I'm excited about the trip. And also I had a hard time packing my clothes. Yes, I had to leave most of my Comme des Garcons, the Y-3's, the Paul Smith's and the rest of my avant-garde choices when it comes to clothing. Sigh...I'm sad I had to leave my babies behind. It can't fit in my luggage. Oh well, I'll just buy new clothes when I go to Bangkok. Their new airport is a shopping haven. I could stay there all day.
So finally I arrive in Seam Reap and Loven fetched me from the airport. We arrived at the hotel and I briefly met my general manager, the charming Nick Downing. They gave us a potent mix drink that really revived my battered senses from fatigue.
Then they brought me to my room and this is what I saw:
the lounge chair
moi at the tub
I love my new playground!
