Things from the places I visited (Part 1)

I love to buy local things which represent the place whenever I travel. In Laos for example, a Beer Lao T-Shirt is a must. Collect souvenirs will make me remember back the places I had been. Some of my souvenirs were given to me by my friends who travel. I got a p*ssy purse keychain from my sick Japanese colleague. He bought it when we went back to Japan for a holiday. Well, here are some of my collections.

Cambodia expels Thai embassy’s first secretary

Thai and Cambodian diplomatic flares again Thursday after Cambodia expels a first secretary of Thai embassy in Phnom Penh. Cambodia’s Foreign Ministry ordered one of the Thai Embassy’s the first secretaries to leave the country within 48 hours, starting from 5pm.

Learning of the order, the Thai side countered by expelling the first secretary of the Cambodian Embassy in Bangkok and ordering him to leave the country within 48 hours, starting from 5pm, said Thai government spokesman Panithan Wattanayakorn.

Nai Lert Shrine (นายเลิศ)

DSCN3590

Nai Lert Shrine is to honour the female deity Jao Mae Thapthim (เจ้าแม่ทับทิม). This canalside shrine is decorated with phallic sculptures of every size and shape. The shrine is donated by worshippers hoping to become fertile. These red tipped anatomically approximate Shiva lingam style animist totems are planted in the style of a picket fence or else offered on altars with clusters of gargantuan shafts swatched in sacred ribbons.

This shrine is not as famous as Erawan Shrine. It might be a little hard to look for the shrine as it is deep in the soi. To get to the shrine, take BTS and get down at Chidlom BTS Station. Walk towards Central Department Store and turn left into Soi Somkhit. Walk straight and enter the Hilton Hotel’s service entrance. The shrine is located right beside the hotel.
