Bustling Bangkok

I had the opportunity to visit Bangkok during the last weekend with my cousin and I found it to be an amazing and bustling city with something for every type of traveller.

On the first night we visited the tallest rooftop bar in Bangkok atop the Baiyoke hotel.  From the 84th floor one can have a breathtaking view of the city.  The revolving floor offers a 360 deg view of the Bangkok skyline.

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

June 2, 2016 1 comment

I disagree with the premise of this topic.  It assumes that being a genius can only bring worry and sorrow and that all simpletons are happy and joyful.

I would choose to be a joyful  genius.  I think there is no greater joy than that experienced by a genius in his/her moment of serendipity.  The ecstatic moments of Archimedes and Kekule show that they experienced great joy on their discovery of ‘the principle of buoyancy’ and ‘the Benzene ring’ respectively.  They did spend years working out their problems and when they took a step back and relaxed, they had their moments of intuition, their ‘Eureka’ moment.  Such men like Einstein, Edison, Archimedes and  Kekule have discovered the workings of principles that have benefited mankind as a whole.  Is there a greater joy than this?

April 22, 2016 Leave a comment

My family and I have just returned from an exotic Bali escapade.  This trip was a feast for our senses and was an eye-opener for us regarding the deep-rooted culture and sense of community in Bali.

We stayed at the Ibis hotels, Nusa Dua.  This hotel is opposite Holiday Inn resort.  Nusa Dua is the centre for water sports in Bali.

Cricketers are treated like superstars, they have a huge fan following and they are
even worshipped or treated on par with God.
