Koh means island and Jum means remember. So if you google translate the name of this island, it would be Remember Island.
The beach area was very quiet because it's not touristy at all. My friends and I were one of the 3 groups of people who visited there. One thing I did half of my time when I was there was taking pictures of hermit crabs. They were everywhere and they were not afraid of human. I took a ton of videos and pictures of them. and also I saw a lot of eagles flying in the sky. I wish I have brought my camera with me but I have got only an iPhone so I couldn't really capture them. But nothing can capture better then your own eyes so if you wish to see these amazing creatures you gotta visit this place by yourself.
Koh Jum is a small and quiet island located an hour away from Krabi town. Last weekend was my first time visiting this amazing place. It was beyond my expectation. Everything was cheap so I was economically traveling and exploring corner of the Koh. The bus I took from Krabi town to the pier costed only 140 for round trip. The boat from Leam Kruat pier to Mutu Pier costed another 140 baht. The hotel which was really nice costed only 400. I got a room for myself. It's a very nice and clean bungalow with one bed big enough for two epople, bathroom inside, small front porch by the beach and little space upstair which we can't climb up but it made it looks really nice. The staffs were so friendly. They just gave me discount without me asking them to. The food was so good. I ate at the restaurant next to where I stayed. It's called "Bow Deang" or Red Bow in English. They served very fresh seafood which was directly bought from local fisherman. It was the best seafood restaurant in the world. I really mean it.
Thailand National Father's Day is celebrated annualy on December the 5th throughout the country. Apart from celebrating fatherhood, on this day people actually celebrate the King's birthday! Yes, Father's day in Thailand is celebrated on the King's Birthday. Commemorates the birthday of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej is observed as National holiday and as National Father's Day.
On Father's Day, people shout "Long Live the King" and wave the flags in front of the palace where his majesty stays. People also decorate their houses by hanging the yellow flag which is the king's flag and also Thailand national flag to symbolize their love to the king and towards the country.
The king is loved by every Thai person. For all his life, His Majesty has done so much for the country as you surely have seen Thailand Royal's Project. His Majesty the King once said....
“One of the reasons underlying the creation of the project was humanitarianism; the desire that these people living in remote areas should become self-supporting and more prosperous. Another reason, and which has received support from all sides, was to solve the problem of heroin. (…) A further reason which is very important is that, as is well known, the hill tribes are people who use agricultural methods which, if left unchecked, could bring the country to ruin. In other words they cut down trees and practice ‘slash and burn’ methods which are totally wrong. If we help them it is tantamount to the country in general having a better standard of living and security.”
His Majesty the King on 10th of January 1969 at the Faculty of Agriculture, Chiang Mai University
Everything His Majesty does has shown his love towards his people. His happiness is to see ...
Wanna see a great spectacular paranomic view of Ao Nang, Hong island and Yao island at the same time? Khao Ngon Nak Bellevue, a lofty mountain by the Andaman Sea is the place to go! Located in Baan Nhong Thale, half hour away from Krabi town, Khao Ngon Nak is like a paradise for hikers who wish to see the awesomely awesome view of mountains of Phanom Bencha Crest. The hike to its peak is 3.7 km up the hill through the green forest, a habitat of various species of wildlife.
Along the way, you surely will enjoy the forest music which is the mixture of the high pitched voice of gibbons and monkeys and other insects such as grasshoppers. All their voice makes such a wake up music for the hikers.
There are two spots that offer you great views of Andaman sea and green jungle. The first stop is like a green path along the cliff with a long line of wooden fence. Another spot is my favorite (before you reach this sport you will find the most difficult path that you walk up a small wooden steps and they are very steep and unstable)
My favorite spot is up almost to the top. It's like a limestone hill covered with green moss and beautiful pink and white flowers. It's a very shady area full of bautiful wild flowers. A big stone perfectly makes a seat off the cliff. White sand cover the lime stone hill that makes you feel like you are walking on the beach. The cool breeze that wipe off the heat of the day. You feel liek you are in a beautiful Eden.
From there it takes like 25 minutes more to the top top of the mountain. The whole trip took me like 3 hours and a half. Itis so worth it because it's obviously paradise on land.
On Wednesday 25 November I visited Care Volunteers at Nong Kok school in Krabi town. It is a small school surrounded by palm trees. There aren’t many buildings in the school but there is a beautiful pond full of fish behind the canteen. The day begin with volunteers arrived at school and clean the class. They simply do everything that staffs at school do for example they help open the doors, windows, sweep the floor and so on. That is before the activities start.
Activities start at around 8.30 when almost every student gets to school. The class I visit is probably the smallest class and students are between 2.5 to 3 years old. They are pretty active and it is not easy to control the class but that is what is challenging. The first activity is morning exercise. They play some English and Thai songs so that volunteers, teacher and of course all student are dancing and exercising together. The next activity is learning alphabet. Our volunteers will be teaching alphabet from A to Z by using flashcards and songs and some other things that will grab kids’ attention. After English session, there’s Thai alphabet session taught by Thai teacher. After that there is art and craft activity normally provided and created by Projects Abroad volunteers. On the day I visit, they make picture frame from ice cream stick. Children glue them together to make a square frame and then they add color paper and feathers to make it colorful and beautiful. After the art and craft session ends, it is lunch time. Our volunteers and teacher serve food and clean after meal. They eat after the children. After that normally the kids will take a nap. Anyway the day I visit, there is another special activity! The teacher brought ingredient to make pancake! Yummy! Our volunteers and ...
Tom Yum or spicy and sour Thai soup is Thai’s favorite and you can find it in every Thai restaurant around the world. It is amazingly fresh and amazingly wonderfully flavored and obviously the healthiest dish. Whenever I get sick, having blocked nose or a cold, I eat Tom Yum and it chases away the flu. It is also very refreshing; it helps brighten your emotion. The ingredient includes various kinds of herbs that’s why it is so healthy and yummy.
In order to make a good Tom Yum dish….simply just go to any fresh market nearby and you will find all you need.
I am going to make a dish of Tom Yum Goong (Tom Yum shrimp)
You can change it to pork, chicken, seafood or any kind of meat you like.
Here is the listLemongrass (3 stalks, use only the tender inner bulbs) Chopped garlic Chopped ginger root (4 small cups) Broth Vegetable oil Shrimp White mushroom Red curry paste (about 2 tea spoons) Fish sauce (about 2 to 3 tea spoons) Lime (as much as you like) A bit of coconut milk (you can add or not add coconut milk) I personally don’t like coconut milk but most of the time people add it Sliced red onion Chopped cilantro
Once you have all these stuff, you just heat the broth and then put the meat in, wait until it's boiled then add the rest of the ingredient. Then enjoy your dish! <3
