Colorful (and hot) Bangkok

It's been extremely hot here in BKK. 35-40 Celsius (95-104 degrees) plus the crazy humidity. But I love it! 

I am super executed about tonight! Team Finland might win the gold metal! (Ice hockey world championships)

By the way, you still have couple days to post a link to your May Challenge post(s)!

Colorful Bangkok - about the coup

If you've been following the news, you'd know that there's been a coup here in Thailand. Everything is very peaceful and the only thing indicating some political turmoil is that the shopping mall nearby closed at 8PM instead of 10PM (the curfew). Soldiers also patrol along roadsides, BUT nothing horrible has happened. Everything is quite normal.

Yesterday we visited Safari World. The pic below is from a dolphin show.

I have the best mom in the world

10 things that make my mom the best mom in the world

My mom and dad

1. She would do anything for her children. I (my brother and sister too) can always count on her. She always helps and does what ever it takes.

2. She is a great role model. She is a brilliant mother, wife, friend, co-worker and a woman. She works hard no matter what she does.

3. She is a cancer survivor. She had a breast cancer.

4. She is a strong woman. She had a challenging childhood but that hasn't stopped her. She knows her worth.

5. She is a prayer warrior. She prays everyday for her children and other people. She has seen how prayer works and knows how important it is

6. She is smart. She knows how to handle difficult people. She knows how to teach wild ADHD children. She knows how to make a grandpa learn to use a computer.

7. She is funny. She has a great sense of humor. Life is not boring with her.

9. Her cooking is divine. No one cooks and bakes like she does. She knows how to use spices and mix different countries' cuisines to prepare a perfect meal. She makes Finnish food taste amazing (I don't like Finnish food because it's so tasteless)

10. She has an eye for beauty. Her house (no matter where it is) has always been beautiful. She knows how to decorate. She also creates beautiful cards and sewing projects.

My mom is the best mom in the world.

Take a break

I've been thinking about my this week's THEME. It's important to take a break, and think. Thinking is something we don't do enough. We just do, execute... I encourage you to take a break. You have your brain for a reason. Save your brain from burn out. Think. 

Posts to help you think and rest

Magical May

A Blog Challenge

I was so inspired by Ashley's Challenge post,  I decided to do  a similar post myself.   

4 things that would make this May magical:

ONE. I'm going to Thailand in 2 weeks. I wish the trip will be amazing. I'm going to be there (and in Laos and Singapore) a little over 1 month.

TWO. My husband is trying to get into a medical school. I hope he'll succeed in the entrance exam (which is this month).

THREE. My tiny online shop moved HERE. I wish I could sell some items this month.

FOUR. I need to pass 1 exam and finish 4 essays before my trip to Thailand. I have 2 weeks. Yaiks!

I'd love to read about your Magical May! You could also choose another topic. Leave a link below:
