Exam season

 
Reflected on the table is an idea of where this place is (in case I forget)

It's time for uni people to breathe easily. While students plow their heads through Strategic Management, Cost Accounting and Business Law, those exempted from taking the finals (read: instructors invigilating) get to have theirs charmed. Mine wandered around Chocolate Ville. I just love perks of exam season week. Work is light; the highlights fun:

girlfriend time after working 9-hour days for awhile, we went al fresco in a seafood restaurant where the

fried sea bass and mango salad was such delight on the palate enhancing travel plans for 2015.  We then proceeded to

a saxophone jazz and blues bar. Blimey, what a place! It was like being in the cellar of a 16th century castle. The only reminder I was in 21st century Bangkok were the strains produced by

a girl saxophonist whose rendition of Careless Whisper dazzled glasses and bottles and sent me

texting the Lovey Dove oceans away stuck in an Arabian palace, poor thing. The reply was "enjoy yourself" and enjoy I did. Isn't it inspiring to be reminded that life is filled with beautiful people and that one of them is in love with you?

  9. I love the homes right on the water. Is there ever a problem with flooding there?

    Even as a student I found exam week somewhat relaxing, since we only had exams and not other classes. Glad you had a lighter work week and some fun time to enjoy it!

    1. Yes, there is. We had a major flood in 2011, but this one on the photo (Chocolate Ville) was spared thank goodness it was.
