We are all leaving Bangkok. YAAAAY

Tomorrow Tom is flying to Germany and Dad and Helen are flying to India but mum and I are staying here in annoying Bangkok city.


This is a little fountain statue thing that has lots of tiny fish in it. Theyre all nibbling on my fingers, its quite a tickly feeling. Did you know that they have fish spas here? They’re these big glass baths with hundreds of finger sized fish in them.


Tourists sit on the edge and soak their feet for 15 minutes and the fish eat off all the dead skin and funky bits. Gross! Ladies normally scream, its pretty funny to watch. But your feet look really clean afterwards.

I’m so bored right now doing my blog but I’ll have to get used to it because I have to do it for the next 7 months.
I’m siting on the 4th floor of our hotel and all I’m going to say in this blog is…..blaaah Bangkok!

Ok, here’s something different. HOW DID THE SQUIRREL CROSS THE ROAD?   Along the power lines.

We were walking around the night market last night and we saw fried scorpions and wolf spiders, as well as crickets and cockroaches YUK!


It looked like they were still alive but they weren’t. I wonder if any tourists actually eat them? Or if its just a trick that the locals play on farangs for fun?




Today or tomorow me and mum are going shopping and I want to buy soooo many things!


6 am in the morning.

Mum wake up come on sleepy head. Its time to go.

Zzz Zzz Zzz Zzz.

Another sweaty day in Bangkok.

6adeb1df0e861297f7df7e8e0379b469This morning we got up and had breakfast and then we went to a park down the road to play the ball game I mentioned in my last blog. We saw this policeman statue along the way. They have some really strange things here.

When we got there we took our shirts off and sweated like a leaking bottle until we were to tired of playing and then a park ranger came along and said you have to put your shirt on. We put our shirts back on and then we went down to the river and OMG!!!! It is so polluted. We saw a big barge go past and it was getting pulled by a tug boat 1/4 of a 1/4 of the size of it.

We saw a Thai lady come down to the river with a water snake in a bag with water and another bag with heaps of little fish in it. She did a prayer offering and then tipped them in. We then saw 2 guys come along on a boat and one guy jumped off to dive down to the bottom of the river and collect mud crabs, he stayed down there for at least half an hour and then we figured out that he had a hose going down for him to breath through. I thought it was pretty cool. But I wondered how he could see what he was doing down there along the bottom of that murky river. After that, we went home to cool off and have some chill out time before lunch.

We had lunch at an Israeli restaurant for a change and I had a chicken pita pocket which is kind of like a mini pizza and a lychee and mint shake. It was so good, and then we checked out some stalls on the way home along Khoa San Road and then came back to our place and relaxed (mum and Tom relaxed I did my blog. So unfair!)

Koha San shopping


1. Get ice cream from across the road.

2. Watch movies.

3. Eat ice cream. Which tropical fruit flavor should I choose?


4. Eat popcorn. I think that’ll be hard here.

5. RELAX .

6. Anoy mum.

7. Bounce off the walls in our room.

8. Do more cool stuff with Tom and mum.

9. Play some games.

10. Anoy mum again.

Bangkok has been so much fun but that was my day so far bye.

New games and new things (in Bangkok)

A couple days ago we arrived back in Bangkok. This is a city that never sleeps, except for the drunk people that you see lying in alley ways sometimes in the mornings. Its very very trafficy (thats a new word) and its full of smells like bad sewage but also yummy meat sticks that they cook in the street stalls. There’s loads of colourful market stalls everywhere too which make it really busy and touristy. Its hot and humid all the time as well which makes you really sticky and sweat runs down your back. Its just great!

Yesterday at sunset we went to this really nice park with a big temple and an old fort with big black cannons in it. (that’s it in the photo above) There were lots of people relaxing and sitting around enjoying the grass and trees. There’s not that many trees and parks around here either because everything’s walls and streets and buildings in this huge city. Anyway Tom brought out this little woven ball that’s made of rattan which is kind of like bamboo. He brought it for mum so we started playing with it. The Thai people here play this game called Sepak takraw with it where they kick the ball over a net and try to keep it in the air for as long as they can. They have teams with 3 on each side.


takrow-sport-lombok-jumpTom made his own throwy thing, its modelled off an Indiaca which is a similar game they play in Brazil but with a different kind of toy. Mum tried to paste a picture on here so you all could see what they look like, but its not working sorry. Anyway Tom has to fix the one he made, so that’s what we’ll be working on in the next few days.

We also played hacky sack as well and for those of you who don’t know what a hacky sack is, it’s a woven ball with beans in it that you kick around. We played until sunset and then mum started taking photos and me and Tom played tag and OMG he might be short but he’s so fast! After a while Tom and I were getting bitten by mozzies so we went home to our musty hotel and had spaghetti bolognaase for dinner on the way, it was massive! I couldn’t eat it all.

BON VOYAGE, see you latter.

Half way to Bangkok.

Good morning.

We woke up in Trat and walked down the road to have coffee at the 10 baht coffee place by the day


I had tea and Dad and Helen had coffee and then we got our bags on and got a taxi to the bus station, 1 km away.
When we got to the bus station I read my book while waiting for the bus and I was reading my book for 2 Hours.

I was nearly finished with my book and I was on page 334 or 5 When the bus arrived and we took our seats and I played video games for the whole bus ride.

When we were on the bus about half way though, I had to go for a pee, so Helen said to the bus driver “can you pull over? “. When he stopped, I raced out into the banana trees and took a peepee and then came racing back to play more video games.

When we got off the bus at Ban Phe, I was too busy helping Helen with my bag, that I forgot about my green bag under my seat. ( it had my book and my ipod in it) When I got off, Helen remembered that it was still on board, but it was too late as the bus was already driving off.

(Just saying to any of you people using ipod’s and phones to connect with me over the internet, you can’t do it any more because of what I just said. Sorry.)

We got a taxi and it took us directly not in the right direction, so we had to hitchhike to where we were going to stay that night.

When we got there we asked if the owner could call the bus station for my green bag, and she did but she could only leave a message. We are still hoping that we can find it and pick it up when we go to Bangkok.

Last night for dinner we came to a place called “Bobs Bar” and I had chicken nuggets with chips and Dad and Helen had FISH AND CHIPS!!!!!!!! And they were all so good!!!!

Last night, Dad and Helen had such a bad sleep. It was incredibly hot, and they said that it felt like bed bugs were biting them, but as we found out in the morning, they were bed mites. I was lucky that I was sleeping on Dads blow up mattress, so I didn’t have bed mites, I just had a nice sleep. In the morning we woke up and were told that “Bob’s Bar” had better rooms than our place so we moved there. That’s where i’m sitting right now doing my BLOG!!!!!!!!! on our veranda!

I like it here and so do Dad and Helen…… Because it has the best of people and views and every couple of minutes a speed boat comes zooming about with a floatation device with heaps of people on it….. mostly chinese and it looks really funny.


BON VOYAGE, bye, bye.

Trat poetry from Trat.( NZ writer.)

Yesterday we came to Trat.

We came by boat so how is that.

We caught a taxi from the pier and found……

The orchid guest house sign in the middle of town.

We put our bags down and soon found out,

the night market was just by the round about.

We went to the night market and Dad and Helen had a nice feast.

But the shrimp they ate I liked the least.

But I on the other hand had pork over rice “and that was very nice”.

I had a banana roti and that thing was very sweet,

I think if I could eat another banana roti,

It would be much more than a treat.

When we came home, I went straight to bed,

Because that way,  in the morning I would not feel pegged.

I think I’m having such a good time,

that now I have to end this rhyme.

Cambodian BBQ and saying good bye to friends.

Last night we hung out with the dive crew for our last night on Koh Kood.

They invited us to a Cambodian BBQ and it was totally amazing.

You had a big pot of embers and you had another pot that you would put over the embers, and that pot had a moat thing around the edge that had hot water in it so that you could make the soup yourself.

When you had put the salad and other stuff in the water, you would put some fat meat on top of the metal dome that was just above the embers to make the soup even better.

You would then cook the other meat around the fat blobs like fish, pork, chicken and squid. Their juices would run off into the soup too, which makes for a very tasty soup.

I ate squid and liver last night for the first time, and they tasted so good.

After the BBQ was over, the dive crew invited us to their house to hang out a little bit longer. Dad and Helen were about to say no but I was already on the back of a bike zooming off down the road with Dad and Helen on my tail also.

When we got to their house I collapsed in the hamock because it was so comfortable and I lay there listening to the adults talking about stuff.

We got a ride home with Alex in the side cart, and it was awesome because we were going up and down and all around. It was more than awesome…… It was fantastic!!!

In the morning we woke up and had toast and hot drinks, then caught a taxi to the boat pier, and this time we went on the fast boat so when we were out a ways from land, I said at the top of my lungs…….. BYE KOH KOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I liked Koh Kood so much it felt like home to me.

BON VOYAGE, bye Koh Kood.:-)

When we we walk to Bartist (where Dad had his concert) up the road we see alot of fireflies, so I thought I might do a blog about them. When we were walking up there we came around a bend and in a tree was what looked like X-mas lights, but they were fireflies. So now I’m going to start my blog.

Fireflies are brown, soft and their front wings are more leathery than most insects.

The most commonly known firefly is nocturnal and lay their eggs just below the surface of the ground and slowly the larvae move into caves and become glowworms.

While the larvae move into the cave they feed on other larvae like slugs and snails while the adults feed on plant pollen or necter.


Random fact number 1.
Some fireflies have no mouths.

The light that comes from fireflies is a chemical reaction in its lower abdomen and it is made by the lower intestines of the firefly.

Some fireflies have a skinny part of there body that can spray toxic or distastful chemicals at their predators.

Fireflies interact with their mates by giving them a steady glow, flashing, or the use of chemical reaction signals.

The fireflies of the tropical islands in south east Asia like the ones we saw syncronise their flashs when they are in large groups.

Another firefly will copy the mating call of the other fireflies to attract the males over and then eat them for a midnight snack.


I think fireflies are pretty cool except for the ones that will eat the ” lighting up ” midnight snack for a special price at New World supermarket….hahaha!!!

BON VOYAGE , blink, blink

I have to tell you before this blog that we have probably seen more fish than these ones listed here and we could’nt find them all when we were researching, so feel free to look them up yourself.

Snorkling in Thailand is one of my hobbies so this is what Dad, Helen and I have seen over time.

We have seen……..

Parrot fish. ( most beachs in Thailand are made of crushed up coral which is parrot fish poo, because parrot fish eat the algae off of the coral. )


Porcupine fish.


Long finned banner fish.

Hermit crabs. ( If you want to learn more about, go and look though my blogs for the hermit crab one.)

Lion fish. ( they are so amazing!!!.)



Anemone. ( swerving, waving ….and is a home for clownfish.)


Yellow tailed barracuda.


Sea cucumbers.( soft and squishy.)

Coral.( Soft coral, hard coral, fan, table, barrel coral)

Blue spotted stingray.( sting.sting…. hehe.)


Clown fish.( Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he wanted to get squashed by an elephant.)

Tiger fish. ( You normally have millions around you while snorkeling.)

Hexagon grouper.


Indian pin cushion starfish.( sewing a starfish….:)

Ink squid.( I wonder if King Neptune used them for pens down there.)


Butterfly fish \ thread fins.

Lobster.( Dad saw one but it ran away to hide because it had his shadow on it.)

Giant clams.

Goat fish.

Spiny sea urchins.( spiky.)

Turtle orange fish.

Fusilier fish.


Rock cod, also known as red grouper. (We saw one today.)

Clouded Leopard

I’ve seen heaps of animals in Thailand, but it would make my day if I saw a clouded leopard in the wild.

So I’ve desided to tell you a little bit about them.

The clouded leopard normally has black spots on its head and a dark dusky grey blotched pattern on his coat.

Females are slightly smaller than males and the eyes of the clouded leopard are a greyish green or brownish yellow.

Clouded leopards are very uncommon to see and weigh between 11.5kg and 23kg. They can jump easily up to 1.2 meters (3.9) feet in height and are the best cat in the word, but that’s my opinion.

From the Himilayan foothills down through China into Asia, the clouded leopard roams and even in Thialand there are a few in the wild, but like I said before they are very shy and uncommon to see because there are only 10,000 left in the wild.

The clouded leopard is the most talented climber of all cats because in captivity they have been seen climbing down vertical tree trucks head first.

Clouded Leopard

They can also hang from branches using only their hind legs and their tail.

Like other big cats they can’t seem to purr, but they can use other sounds like meowing, grumbling, growling, mumbling and hissing.

Since these animals are rarely seen , humans can’t get that much infomation about their habits in the wild.

If I were walking along in the wild and a clouded leopard crossed my path, it would make my day. ( if it didn’t eat me first 🙂 . ).

BON VOYAGE… in clouded leopard languge MEOOOOOW HISSSSS MUMBLE GERRRRANA!!!!!!!!

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 THE END:-) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
