On our way

December 2nd, 2008 4 Comments

So, the PAD is leaving the airports.  (Thanks Bangkok Pundit for all the info you’ve given me these 2 weeks!) The day after the “Smiling Moon”, a sign of good things to come. Hours after I have been told that we are confirmed for Monday to leave Bangkok, hell or high water, from U-tapao or Suvarnabhumi. Yes, kids.  We are finally going home!  That doesn’t mean I will stop blogging about the situation.  It might not be live like the

Stranded in BKK – Live blog

Well, as live as I can make it.  I will update with any info I hear. Our situation: 12/2 – 12:30 : Waiting to hear if we are able to get on an EVA flight out of U-tapao tomorrow or not.  What we got from them yesterday was a “waiting list” for the “possible flight” tomorrow and a confirmed for Dec. 8 out of Suvarnabhumi.  I looked at the paper work and started laughing. Our other option which we really

Backlash

This was the day Brandon was supposed to go back to America.  Obviously, he’s still here. I just found out that EVA had canceled more flights through Dec. 4, however neither of our flights showed up in that list. Not yet.  Monday will be another struggle to find us a flight out.  At this point, I don’t care how but we have to get out.  Brandon can’t be gone another week and I sure as hell can’t afford to be

Brandon’s flight has indeed been canceled. EVA Airlines phone is so tied up that my dad’s assistant had to send a messenger over to the ticketing office to find out what to do next.  They said there will be a flight to Taipei from U-thapao airport tomorrow and that is what we are aiming for.  5 hours since the ticketing office opened, we still have no words. The rumor of a coup last night was just a rumor after all.

Not your typical Thanksgiving post

Yesterday we had lunch with my mom’s group of friends aka The Aunties.  They treated us to German brats and sausages and potatoes and saurkraut and pork legs at the Goethe Institute.  It was always a pleasure to hang out with them. All the jetting around got me a little bit sick.  Having felt very poorly last night, we canceled our river boat dinner cruise so I would be well enough for this morning’s road trip. Brandon and I started

Of Bliss…and being pissed off

November 25th, 2008 1 Comment

*Warning! This entry contains Thai political rant at the very end.* Here we are, another airport, another day.  It’s Phuket International now, waiting to head  back home to Bangkok from a 3-day of bliss. So far it’s been a whirlwind trip.  We landed in Bangkok on Saturday around 11:30.  Later that evening, I went to Homecoming at my school, Mater Dei Institute.  I met my friends at the gate while I was waiting for Tong.  We went in, and all
