I really didn't do anything today. Woke up a little before lunch and just hanged out with Porsche at the hostel lobby where Mofu Cafe is. By the way I'll do a review of both the hostel and the coffee shop once i get to finish backtracking on my blog entries. All i can say for now is, HQ is a really nice place to stay at and Mofu Cafe is a cool relaxing place to hang out. definitely quite the refuge from all the "wetness" of songkran. Both are at Silom Soi 3. So do check it out.

It's really nice to be chatting with Porsche and his siblings, Benz and Turbo. Yes, named after automobiles. ain't that cool. And since i have a coffee shop too of my own, we had a lot to talk about. I can say that i've actually made friends with them. They're the coolest, I even got to meet their dad whose gonna arrange diving lessons for me the next time I am in thailand, because it's cheaper in thailand than in the philippines to learn diving.

Also the people at HQ are just awesome. I spent the last few hours of my stay at the hotel just taking pictures of the place. Porsche and his girlfriend, Tiw were even kind even to bring me to Lub D to check in for one night. If i had not made earlier reservations in Lub D, i would've stayed at HQ. I felt so at home there.

At the lobby I met mark who has been staying at lub D the past few days (met him at the TB seafood market/resto meetup), he was just waiting for his flight to India. It's nice to see a familiar face in a new surrounding. After checking in, I went out to meet my friend from back home, Alman who I had lunch with at MK in Siam Square. They have good roast duck by the way! Alman also has a flight back to manila in a few hours so after accompanying him to buy a new digital camera at Paragon we parted ways.

It's kinda weird that we don't even have the time to see or bump into each other in Manila, yet here we are in bangkok for lunch.

After lunch I had to go back to HQ since I forget my laundry there, but before picking it up i made another round along silom. By 5 PM i grew tired of the getting wet and to avoid all the people in silom i hired a tuktuk to take me around back to HQ. of course with a price... 200 baht for a few minutes on the tuktuk. oh well, nevermind, the point is i didn't have to wade thru the sea of people at silom.

Night time i just went to do more laundry at Lub D.
