Aladdin's adventure in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkok

Aladdin's adventure in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkok

Wednesday 10th of October 2012 and my alarm went off at 6 thirty. I was dead tired because I didn't fall asleep until way past 3 o'clock in the morning. I had 2 alarm going off just to make sure Aladdin's adventure with acupuncture in FUNKY TOWN/ BangkokI didn't overslept. I managed to get out of bed.
The only thing saving me from falling asleep again was the excitement. I'm quite exciting to get to the acupuncture place, it is what we call hocus-pocus and mumbo jumbo in Sweden.

I had my TUNA & ONION SURPRISE ® with a pot of tea before I left for Sophia Muay Thai Gym.

I arrived to Sophia 2 minutes after 8 and the security guard told me that the American girl had Aladdin's adventure with acupuncture in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokarrived. But no sign of our Teacher. Well, we only had to wait for another 2 minutes before our Teacher arrived.

It was early morning, but it was already very hot. Like a sauna, it had been heavy rain all night long and now the sun was shining and the water was steaming off and it was very hot.

One of the security guards suffers from back pain and he was going to join us as well. We walked Aladdin's adventure with acupuncture in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokto Asoke to look for a taxi. Heavy morning traffic and we Aladdin's adventure with acupuncture in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokhad to wait for quite a while before we found a taxi.

We turned left at Petchaburi and we continued on Petchaburi Road almost all the way to Banglamphu when we turned left Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokat Lan Luang. When we had crossed the canal we turned left and we drove down Krung Kasem Road along the canal until we reached the Hua Chiew hospital.

I had been half asleep all the way from Asoke to Hua Chiew hospital but I never managed to fall asleep. I needed sleep Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokbecause I was dead tired and I was hoping that I could sleep while I had the acupuncture.

We entered the acupuncture department at Hua Chiew hospital and I expected a witch doctor around every corner. But no witch doctors to be Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokseen, at least not in the reception.

We checked in and I had to sign a declaration that I would not hold Hua Chiew hospital Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokresponsible for anything that went wrong during the treatment.

I thought acupuncture was like God's gift to mankind and it would cure everything. I had planned to ask for the “Get handsome” treatment.

But my urge for a “Get handsome” treatment disappeared after the signing “will not take any action against Hua Chiew hospital for DAMAGES”

Imagine waking up like the Elephant Man after a acupuncture session at Hua Chiew hospital, what a Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokdisappointment. So I decided just to have the acupuncture treatment for my shoulders and to skip the Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkok“Get handsome” treatment.

We had to check blood pressure and stuff before we were approved for the acupuncture treatment. We were directed to room 304 on the third floor.

There were about 10 beds separated by drapes in room 304. The security guard and I ended up next to each other and they told us to lie down on the beds. I felt asleep and I woke up when Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkoksomeone asked me to take off my shoes. I looked up and there were 9 Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokpersons looking (1 beautiful girl) at me, 8 of them was holding a notebook writing down stuff while the senior witch Doctor did the talking
They told me to take of my shirt. Well, first they told me to lie down but they were soon realising that I needed to take off my shirt. A red shirt with Chinese writing on it, especially chosen due to the acupuncture adventure.

The put needles in my back while I was taking pictures. I didn't feel when they put the needles so I never knew when they were ready with the sticking needles in to my back. But I discovered when they put electricity through the needles. Electricity??
I thought acupuncture was a thousand year old tradition. Obviously I will have to look that up.

Well, anyway, I was for sure noticing when they hooked up the needles to electricity. The acupuncture experience turned unpleasant with the electricity.
- We will come back in 1 hour to disconnect you
- 1 HOUR!!!!
- OK, we come back in 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes they removed the needles and a girl appeared with a try with empty bottles. Now it was time for something the call bottling. She lighted up a flare to warm up the air in the bottles and she put them on my back. The air cools down creating a vacuum and thus sucking up the skin in the bottles.

After a few minutes she removed the bottles with a PLOP leaving several hickeys on my back.

Well, my shoulders didn't feel any better when we left Hua Chiew hospital. But I recall reading Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkoksomewhere about acupuncture to cure baldness and to help you with the diet. After going from failure to failure Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokwith the “MAGIC HAIR STUFF” and the “Best looking guy in town” diet I might go for some acupuncture.

We took a taxi back to Sophia Muay Thai Gym and our Teacher asked me if I wanted to go for some lunch. We walked back to Asoke and a new restaurant. They had started to build the place last time I was home and I saw the progress walking back home from Bangkok Fight Club in the evenings. We had something to eat and I flushed down the food with a cup Aladdin's acupuncture adventure at Hua Chiew hospital in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokof tea. The American girl and our Teacher went back to Sophia for their session and I would be back at 1 thirty for my session.

I didn't have much time, just a quick cuppa and a change of clothes before I walked back to Sophia Muay Thai Gym for my session. Our Teacher and the American girls was sittin gin the ring when I arrived.
Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.st - This is not the spirit we're looking for.

I was soon in the ring and we did 11 rounds with the mitts before I walked back home. The Security Guard at the gate told me that Aladdin's adventure with Converse shoes in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokthere was a parcel for me at the office. Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.stI went in to the office and there was a huge parcel and I suspected that it was my shoes, finally.

They had been here to Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.stdeliver my shoes while I was at Sophia. I have tried to get the shoes delivered with several different online shoe stores. All of them in US of A, last time I ordered shoes I got them delivered from UK and this last online shoe shop was also a shop in UK. And no import tax!!! Last time I got 4 pairs and I had to pay 3 or 4000 Baht in import tax. Now I got 12 pairs Aladdin's adventure with Converse shoes in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokand ZIP in import tax.

So I was in a very good mood when I carried the parcel to my apartment. The Office staff asked me if I needed help with the parcel.
- No, I'm a...
- You're a sportsman!
- Yes, so I can take the parcel by myself.

I was back home very early as I had started my Thai boxing session at Sophia Muay Thai Gym early so I had plenty time to kill. I had planned to take a taxi to Banglamphu and walk around the Aladdin's adventure with Converse shoes in FUNKY TOWN/ Bangkokarea for a few hours.

I took a taxi to Khao San Road via the tool way and I walked around Banglamphu for a while. Can't say that I was full of vim, pain in my legs, almost felt like I was having fever.

I passed a burger King and I Aladdin's adventure at Burger King in Bangkok/ FUNKY TOWNsaw a picture of a fish burger and it looked delicious. I'm on diet so I just walked by, but I turned around after 100 meters and I went back to Burger King and I ordered one of their delicious looking “DOUBLE” Aladdin's adventure at Burger King in Bangkok/ FUNKY TOWNfish burgers. Of course, I had fish and chips on my mind so I asked for some fries to go with my burger.
- You want cola?
- A bottle of water thanks.

I never learn, my fish burger didn't look even close to as good as the one on the menu, and it didn't tasted as good as I had Aladdin's adventure at Goose's Fish & Chips Restaurant in Pattayaexpected. I really wish they had the Fish'n chips restaurant they have in Pattaya here in Bangkok. Goose's fish & chips, the only reason to go to Pattaya. And their rhubarb pie, foock, I'm off to Pattaya in a taxi right now...

Well, I forgot that I was on the “Best looking guy in town '12” diet so it will have to be another time. But Goose's fish & chips restaurant in Pattaya is highly recommended by Aladdin. And a HOT tip!

Ask for the fish fingers with chips and mashed peas instead of the fish and chips. And Aladdin's adventure at Goose's Fish & Chips Restaurant in Pattayaof course, a bucket of tea with rhubarb pie. And tell them to fill up the plate with custard sauce. I always get my rhubarb pie with a brimmed plate custard sauce.

Well, anyway, I left Burger King and I was feeling better with my fever and I was full of vim and I walked up Soi Damnoen Klang Nuea and I crossed Aladdin's adventure at Burger King in Bangkok/ FUNKY TOWNRatchadamnoen at the Democracy Monument.

I walked up Dinso Road until I passed a barber shop. I decided to get a haircut.

A trimmer on 0 in order to make the bald spot a wee bit less obvious. I don't know if it helps, but I felt better when I left the barber shop.

They have a big square between the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration City Hall and the Sutat Temple. I could hear the music and when I came closer I discovered aerobics.

Nice to see that they still have the aerobics going on. Quite popular in Bangkok, at least some 10 Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.styears ago when you could see aerobics in every park and parking lot. And yes, I participated at the aerobics in the Benchasiri Park. Yes, we can just imagine... Not a nice view.

Well, anyway, I walked around for a few hours like I used to do back in the days before I started Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.stat Bangkok Fight Club. It is very nice and as soon as you come off the beaten tracks the Thai people start to turn cartwheels as soon as they discover that you can count to 10 in Thai.

So it is very fun, the only set back is that I don't go to Bangkok Fight Club, but there is so much people. Well, the biggest setback with my constitutionals is the restaurants. I have been home for 2 weeks now and I have been out for a few hours every day. And I have only made it back home 3 times without stopping at a restaurant to eat. Well, make it 2 times, one night it was too late and I stopped at Tops Market. I bought salmon and sausages.

I know what sausages I like in Sweden, but not in Thailand. So I bought plenty different sausages that I brought back home and I had an “middle of the night” sausage buffet in my kitchen. For sure not good for my diet. Yet another smiley at www.aladdin.st

Well, the acupuncture adventure have come to an end and I'm looking forward to my Thai language school adventure tomorrow afternoon. And by the way, all the sausages in my sausage buffet tasted very good. Not that I will remember what sausages I bought next time I will buy sausages, but I can at least hope that I will be lucky to pick the good ones.
