Bangkok-Chiang Mai trip Sept 2012 : 20000 bath i never forget

In my last day Bangkok trip 3 days ago, i run out cash, so i went again for the third time to CIMB Thai. I was going to take only 2000 bath and ended up with 20.000 bath instead. I was in rush so i did a mistake by withdrawing too much money coz before i had spent 6000 bath . Now i have 19000 bath left which i have to exchange to idr. I hope the rate is not bad, at least equal to what i got from the cimb thai. It is 322 for 1 bath

Kadazan-Dusun, Monsopiad Village

The Kadazans and me in Monsopiad Cultural Village, Penampang, Malaysia. I visited this place on 22 August 2012. To enter this place you need to pay RM 65 (USD 20). You can trace the Sabah indigenous tribe here including to see the 42 skulls that are kept in the house of Monsopiad family. The house is opposite of the cultural village. it is really a worth trip.

The Lumads, Cherry and me at People's Park in Davao, Philiphine

I was in Philippine before heading to KK. I visited Davao, Manila, Pasag, and Quezon.  I stayed longer in Davao and I love the city.. here I was in People's Park, close to the historical street St Pedro -Bolton. At that time I visited Davao (15-18 August 2012) people were celebrating Kadayawan Festival. It was  a lovely trip and will remind last in my memory.

My trip to Manila and Davao City (August 2012)

Finally I decide to go to Davao City. I just paid the it will be 3 days trip before heading to Kinabalu.
Actually I will only spend time in Manila but my friend told me that Manila is like Jakarta or Bangkok. So he suggested me to travel to Davao, instead. He used to live in Manila for 6 months so he must have known well about the country.

Myanmar trip Sept 2012

I will go to that country in Sept 2012. I thought I would not need visa because it is part of ASEAN countries. However, foreigners still need to apply entry visa to Myanmar . This policy is annoying because it is conflictual with the willingness of the country to be more open. How come you still restrict people from ASEAN when you promise to be open country. I hope when I depart in next September, that policy will have been abolished. I do hope it is materialized because I already booked the hotel and paid for my ticket. Myanmar should allow ASEAN citizen to travel free without visa
