Greeting from Thailand!
Arrived at Hatyai on 17Dec, today is my 2nd day in Hatyai. Currentlt relaxing at a cafe and working on the net. Wonder how i can post the pics here?
Tomorrow will leave Hatyai to Trang and Krabi, stay 1-2nights there before heading to Phuket.
Nothing much in Hatyai. Perhaps will stay at Songhla on the way back i.e. on 1-Jan12.
ps. manage to get my 1st party inserance coverage at Uni-Asia Butterworth. The staff there said my name is already famous in their company cos i calledd up almost all the branches and the HQ as well :P

My drive from JB – Phuket is very relaxing and exciting. THANKS KENT FOR HIS BLOG, IT REALLY MAKE THE DRIVING SOUNDS SO SIMPLE (AND IT REALLY IS!).
This is my 1st time dirving to Thailand. AND I DO NOT HAVE A GPS! I STILL DO IT THE TRADITIONAL WAY, AND IT CAN BE FUN ALSO I.E. YOU WILL GET TO THE TOWN’S ROADS BETTER IN YOUR MEMORY. Just obtain those free maps when you reach every town. However i did buy 1 Southern RM12 and it is very useful when i drive between towns.
