Hi ya’ll and welcome to today’s post, Jetlag V2 or LIVE FROM BANGKOK – IT’S FRIDAY MORNING! I hope you like it! If you do, make this blogger happy – like it on FB 😀
COFFEELOVE OR WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?????
Okey doke – The clock says 4:09 am and I’ve been up and ginning around for about an hour, thanks to jetlag. ⏰⌛️🕰 Glad I’m a morning person — best part of the day IMHO. In keeping with my goal of trying something new everyday, I spotted a french press and thanks to the magic of YouTube, I’m now enjoying the best. cup. ever. ☕️☕️☕️ No kidding. I feel very worldly and sophisticated now. A french press coffee pot is definitely in my immediate future.
Bigmommy, Mr. iknead and I – along with the three grands – went to Mega Bangna mall for most of the day. My first exposure to Ikea. LOVE IT! Katie, Cindy and Sarah – how bout a trip to the brand spankin’ new Ikea store in Memphis????? I feel a road trip coming on!!! Maybe a girly overnight??? There were a TON of shoe stores at Bangna that I’d love to visit – Teva and Birkenstock to name just two. If you haven’t heard already, I’m a shoe addict. A bad one. When I shuffle off this mortal coil, whenever that might be, I’ve already left instructions to forget about the fancy clothes, I want a totally rockin’ pair of shoes, and make sure they can be seen, put them on the pillow instead of my head if that’s what it takes. 👠👠👠👠 You think I’m kidding, don’t you???
I think we are going to visit the Grand Palace sometime today, which promises to be interesting. We have to find out if it’s open to visitors, I think the late King is maybe lying in state there, so it may be closed to tourists and such. I noticed yesterday that most of the native Thai are wearing black as a sign of respect. Official mourning for the King runs for one year – During that time, new palace will be constructed to house his body and on the first anniversary of his passing next October, the new palace with the King’s body inside will be burned to the ground, with the new palace serving as his funeral pyre.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

Both smitten, I think!
