Day 19 of our Asia 2014 vacation / 5th day of our 6-Day Thailand trip!
Had breakfast (as usual I only ate cereal lol I didn’t have appetite in the mornings for some reason. Everybody had eggs and other yummy food but I’m just like….. ceeeeerreeooo •_• No photos of my Koko Krunch though. But you can haz a photo of Kevin’s sunny-side ups.
Chao Phraya River & The Attack of the Catfishes
Took a boat on the Chao Phraya River and looked at some temples before leisure tiiiiime~
BUT FIRSTLY, the tour guide made us wake up extra early, took us to NaRaYa and let us shop there (for quite awhile) before we walked to the dock to wait for our boats. APPARENTLY we had to wait for other tour groups to go together for some reason even though my family was one independent tour group?! Let’s just say we waited. And waited.
I feel kinda sad for these people for some reason :( I don’t think people really buy stuff from them anymore nowadays.
I remember we used to have a couple of those boat models the lady is holding in her hand back at home in Singapore.
UM Okay. First of all… let me just say the water was… not very clean lol. Apart from the… vegetation floating around, we also spotted quite a number of garbage. But we did see a truck and a crane of some sort picking up the floating plants and garbage so that’s good I guess!
Okay honestly, I spent hours trying to figure out what species these catfish are. Initially I thought they were just the Chao Phraya Catfish?! But after I looked at the photos and descriptions of the Chao Phraya Catfish (elongated black-tipped doral fins? Nope…), I figured they must be some other type of Catfish. Long story short after comparing several different types of Catfish (including Basa Fish, Giant Mekong Catfish…), I’m just gonna assume it’s the Striped Catfish =_=.
Back in shopping district…
We continued shopping after our tour. Forgot where else we went besides Platinum and this tech mall.
END OF DAY 5!
