Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is a very famous Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. You should visit this temple if you go to Chiang Mai, otherwise it's like going to Kuala Lumpur but skip KLCC ;)

But I was really stupid, didn't take photos in the main temple where people pray :S
It was a rainy day, we paid 20 baht for the rental (umbrella)




309 steps to the pagodas, Chris suggested us to take tram, but I thought it's better to walk to the top for praying ;)


Run run run...
Run, violet run!

Finally,
Reached!


This looked like cut-and-paste :P


Fuuuuyoh!
Wonderful piece of art, hahaha :P






Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

After rained, I loved the reflection

Hehehee


SOme photos






Kevin ran very far for this shot ;)


Mom?
Nope, you are not my 'mom'
:P








Under my umbrella...

Ella ella eh eh eh,
under my umbrella..







The prayer



Sigh...face like a bread




Leaving..


Bye bye.. :)




This song is dedicated to you,
Rihanna, Umbrella



You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now it's raining more than ever
But we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh)

These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

You can run into my arms
It's okay don't be alarmed
Come into me
There's no distance in between our love
So go on and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

It's raining
Ooh baby it's raining
Baby come into me
Come into me
It's raining
Oh baby it's raining

Looks like you had a great time despite the weather. Crazy rain when I was in Bangkok years ago. And it seems you really enjoyed your hotel room. ;)

Yeah, rained a lot when I was there, in fact almost everyday! ;)
The room is clean and nice, who doesn't like to be the first person to 'try' new things? We were the first guests to the room. Hehehe :P

Love the dress! You're always so photogenic, but your dress really does complement the temple colors. I like the one where your'e running up the stairs a lot too. You look so focused. ^_^
