Let’s Go to Bangkok!

Bangkok Rock Festival 100

Bangkok 100 Rock Festival 2008

I am heading to Bangkok to see this concert. Actually, I have no preference over any particular bands, I just want to go to a rock festival and take a break from what has been a, well, strange year.

I haven’t spoken or made plans about this with anyone yet. But frankly, even if I am going there alone, I’d still go coz I really REALLY need to do something and be somewhere where I can scream out loud without getting arrested.

The plan is to fly there after work on Friday Nov 28 (yes on my birthday) or early Saturday morning; do some quick shopping or whatever it is that you do when you are in Bangkok like eating fried bugs or getting a massage or something, then off to the concert, rinse and repeat on Sunday. I’d be flying out on Sunday when the concert’s over and possibly take Monday off to recuperate. I have not bought my flight tix or book a room yet but those are very simple details that can be taken care of at the snap of the fingers. I am buying the concert ticket FIRST (and as always, imposed on poor Jobster to do the dirty work), so that I can’t back out of it. The ticket costs THB1400 for a 2-day pass; and THB80 for a one day pass. It’s done. I’m going.

  1. It’s done. I’m going. And by some cosmic mix-up, managed to convince a total stranger to go with me as well. Haha. This is going to be interesting.

    A total stranger? One of those boys who was trying to pick you up? He he.

  3. haha that was SIX months ago (or thereabouts). I haven’t been picked up by any young, male strangers since and I have actually forgotten about that, you know!

    This one’s a friend’s friend – whom I have never spoken to or met. I think I was conned into babysitting.
