A lot of things happened this week. I need a quiet place just to clear my mind because life seems so scary. I'm getting more scared of losing my family as I grew older. To put it bluntly, I envy people who are carefree. I always wish I was somebody else or.. I want my old self back, the carefree me. Yes, I used to be one of those carefree kids.

So here I am, a Songkran virgin. The second I arrived in Hat Yai, I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to walk around without getting wet because I saw too many people with water guns on street. So yes, I was right. I was greeted with water splash as soon as I reached Hat Yai.
My brother met his friends unintentionally. Bought the "gun" and had fun.
Me and my brother were drowning in the sea of people. It was a great day.
But the next day was greater! Interacting with local people and other tourists.
Some people rented car, truck and tuk-tuk to get around town.
Local people are the best.
I even got free beer. Cheers!
Last, feel the fun, feel the sun. *dorkface* LOL
Hmm.. I miss the "gun", I miss the "war".

Being a stranger in another country, probably the most exciting thing for me. Just walking down the street, meeting new people, trying new things and foods.
I was lost on my way to find a famous Cendol place and I ended up asking an auntie to show me the way. I remember the auntie was kind enough to warned us that there were many pickpockets so we must be careful. Although her warning made me a little scared. Haha.
On my way to the famous Cendol place, I found this eye-catching store and decided to come inside. There were sooo many stuff from key chain, tea pot to antique Chinese calligraphy set with the brush, ink, stamp and other stuff that I don't know. After buying some souvenirs, we walked again.
And here is the so-called famous Cendol. The upper-left is original flavor and the other two on the right are Durian flavor (which is one of the list of fruits I hate). So you know which one was mine, right? Oh! The laksa (bottom-left) was mine too. Simple but taste-wise.
After filling up my stomatch, I returned to hotel. And suprisingly, there're plenty of beautiful spots around the hotel! FYI the hotel is around George Town.
Ops! Booya! I wasn't that crazy to kiss him. This uncle is a painting because Penang—wait.. I mean George Town is full of street art. Haha.
Finally I arrived at the hotel, but do you think that I head back to hotel to take a nap and being a lazy head after the loong walk? Just so you know, sleeping is such a waste for short vacation. (at least for me) Haha. I rented a van from the hotel and go to a local market
and two temples. I saw loads of pigeons at one of the temples. Trying to feed them but instead they flew away, sobs.
Hmph, time sure flies when you're having fun. The sky was already dark, so I went to a road full of stalls selling Penang hawker food, ate dinner, and head back to hotel.
This uncle was so nice. (we talked a bit)
So I gave him two thumbs up. Haha.
