Happy First Birthday, Sydnee Elise!

Super Excited

Time flies so fast. Whatever is lost can’t be taken back… impossible to catch again. I miss some important days and events in my daughter’s growing up but there’s no point to be gushy at the moment so I decided to plan a party for her first birthday – that’s twelve days from now. So close and yes that’s how close I am to coming home for her too. I’ve actually planned the party weeks ago and created DIY decors, party hats and some other stuffs for children and adult games to make the gathering even more fun. Also, I contacted someone for the design of her cake and to pre-order one for her. It’s gonna be a blast since it’s my daughter’s and husband’s birthday together.

 

I recall this time last year, I prepared stuffs for her arrival and now I’m preparing DIY decors and party bits and pieces for her first birthday. Can’t wait to get home and start decorating for the event… just few more days and I’ll be home.I promised to myself I will never leave my daughter again!

This song, Going Home, is just right for the moment and happening of my life. God is so amazing for giving me another try!

I’m staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I’m going to the place where love
And feeling good don’t ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain.

Well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
Well I’m going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I’ve not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love remains true.
And I don’t know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,

Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want.
Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
I’m going home.

My Ayuthaya Tour in Photos part 2, Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Relic

What images does “relic” conjure for you? A well-worn piece of blue beach glass, the faded pencil markings from a high-school journal, or the curmudgeonly character from the CBC television series, The Beachcombers?


This week’s photo challenge – relic is a convenient challenge for me. Few days ago I visited one of the ancient capitals of Thailand and I got photos that proves its existence and antiquity. My Ayuthaya tour is my entry for this week’s photo challenge.

Ayutthaya or Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, is the capital of Ayutthaya province in Thailand. It is located in the valley of the Chao Phraya River, and it was founded in 1350 by King U Thong, who went there to escape a smallpox outbreak in Lop Buri and proclaimed it the capital of his kingdom, often referred to as the Ayutthaya kingdom or Siam. Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital after Sukhothai. (wikipedia)

How to get to Ayuthaya: (based on our travel)

From Bangkok

Go to Victory Monument, take the van that goes to Ayuthaya and tell the van driver to drop you off at the van terminal. Get a tuktuk ride, who usually charge you 200baht/hour tour but eventually gives you 700 baht for 5 hour tour around the city and temples. (We were three when we went for a tour so the price was not bad.) You will pay an entrance fee to some temples and in floating markets but some temples are free.
