A monk came here everyday :)

 

Woke up early in the morning to Tag Bat. It's the time that the monks will come. We haven't prepare any food from home but at Cupid Homestay had a Tag Bat set for us, 100 baht per head. We usaully Tag bat with rice, food, dessert and water. In bangkok, we wait for the monks in front of our houses and the monks who stay in the nearest temple will walk pass by. We have to say "Ni mon" means inviting the monks to have food. When the monks stop, we serve rice first then food and dessert. A monk can't recieve thing directly from women, we have to put them in a piece of cloth so he can take it.

At Ampawa, monks can't walk pass the house because houses are near river so they came with a long tail boat which they sail it by themselves.

Me - Tag bat!
We were at the landing waited for monks, 15 minutes later one monk came. It was about 20 people, my friends and I and another group, came to Tagbat but only one monk. I asked him after finish that why only him? He said "other monks can't sail".

Awwww ....

He left with a neary sink boat because of tons of the same set of food. Wonder if he's bored with those food because he has to eat the same thing everyday? Hmm...

This is a short trip in Ampawa because we had to go to Huahin beach next. Before left here, we visited Chulamanee temple, very beautiful one in Ampawa, highly individual style. The second place was Rama II National Park. King Rama II was born here. Last place was Bang-ka-pom temple then went to Huahin.

Hua hin

One of my friends has a condo in Huahin so we stayed there for one night. Huahin beach is in Pra-joub-kee-ree-kan province. 2 hours from bangkok. It's a famous beach for Thai and foreigners which can get quite crowded in town. With an extensive bars, pubs, club and entertainment and also is a place that has Music Festival here such as Thai music Festival or the well-known one, Jazz Festival. For some Thais who don't have time to go to the beach at South, this is a good one to spend a holiday with. But for me, the beach is not quiet and not good with many jellyfishes sometimes. Very lucky that in front of the condo is a private beach but in town  there also has many activities on the beach such as Thai massage, horse rides, people who sell food, stuff, do henna, etc. all along the beach so i better say no for it to see the fantastic one at South than spend my holidays here! Only one reason that I don't deny to go there is night market. It's full of foooooood!!! :D
