>Thailand is celebrating Songkran (Thai new year) this week. Water-throwing which characterizes the occasion has been reportedly mild especially in Bangkok where protests are still going on. It’s untraditionally dry where I live and in general things have been quiet. I like the week just the way it is:
A place to purchase necessities in peace
I usually stay indoors during Songkran because I don’t like to get drenched. To do the same thing this year I hoarded food so I didn’t have to go out at anytime during the entire week. I’m glad I was able to do my shopping without having to worry about stray bullets or being trampled by a mob.
A friendly man in uniform
After buying everything we needed, CJ and I stood waiting opposite the mall for our ride home. Vehicles on the highway were sparse. The cop directing traffic approached CJ, and playfully tugged the Ultraman doll which seems perenially attached to CJ’s hand nowadays. Then he went back to his job. It all happened within less than a minute but the smile coming out the officer’s masked face spread to my face too.
Baby sitting gone easy
Out of the blue CJ stopped drinking milk from the bottle. An abrupt, sort of without preamble decision of his. YAY to the end of almost six years of bottle-related inconveniences! I’m exceedingly relieved and pleased.
I made use of my free week brainstorming. There are parts of research where offline sources are more helpful than online back-up. Such books were good litter on my bed.
Rebirth in my fridge
This is the result of more or less 60 dinners in restaurants, and take-out lunches. I had fun discovering it, wished I had an earth-filled pot so it could go on or time for city gardening –
