This week’s travel Photo of the Week reveals that Christmas season has arrived, even here in Buddhist Thailand. I’m leaving in a few days to go pick my family up in Bangkok for the holidays, and I couldn’t be more excited. You won’t be reading about it for a while though, because I have tons more Cambodia and Vietnam goodness to share!
In preparation for their arrival I’ve basically spent another week in the house, writing blog posts and finishing freelance projects. It was during on of my daily 7-11 runs that I picked up this cake to infuse some holiday cheer into my day in the tropics.
Thanks Andi! You knew I’d find a way to celebrate even over here, right? 🙂
Tee hee! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to you too!
Santa looks a little unfocused…I hope he can keep it together for the big day! Speaking of focused…I need to get that way to get this mountain of stuff into one suitcase…..XOXO
It’s because he’s missing his glasses!
Haven’t seen anything like this in Thailand so far, looks very yummy 🙂
You can find anything at 7-11!
You are in the spirit!
I’m reading this post with mom in JFK waiting to get on our plane to come see you!
As excited as I am for all the unique and exotic things Thailand has to offer this Xmas, I’m equally excited to know there is a 7-11 close by.
To all you blog readers, get pumped to start reading posts about Alex’s FAMILY!
7-11 is my lifesaver, and they are all over Thailand. I definitely missed them when we were traveling through Cambo and Vietnam! And by the way, it will be a long time before readers start hearing about this trip! We haven’t even gotten to Vietnam yet!
Alex, you must be so excited to have your family coming to spend Christmas with you. I had a gift I wanted to send with them. I’m going to have to get an address to send it to you directly instead. We will miss you during the holiday. Love you…Laura
Laura, you are too sweet. I have a better idea, rather than mailing it… come hand deliver it yourself! 🙂 I miss you guys terribly around all the holidays. Will be thinking about you. Lots of love!
