My friends are in Pattaya, Thailand this week. Although I wasn't able to go I think this is the part where I learn about delayed gratification. I love BKK and I just haven't had the greatest experience there. It's so Manila-esque. The chaos, the noise and the pollution - all present. I was late in realizing that just like Manila - that's all part of its allure - cultura yan! I hope I can still go back one day.
