Laos; Mac 2015!

Assalamualaikum..


 Sa bai dee from Laos!!!! (^^)/

As you can guess from my previous post, just right below this one, February and most of March haven't been the best time for me

Many things happened and one particular event even made me reevaluate my future plans and sort of got it all off course. Walaupon ada sedikit rasa mo strangle the confounding factor, but then I must be positive that there must be something good to this...

Anyway, let me tell you a little bit about this trip although we are actually just on our 3rd day 

When I said we are going to spend 8 days in Laos, people were like "What are you going to do there that long?"

Truth is 8 days is not enough unless you just wanna spend it Vientianne and Vieng vang which are less than 6 hours car journey from each other.
We opt to go to the Souhern part of Laos and currently I'm lazing in a small cafe set on the bank of Mekong River. It was raining since sunrise so here we are... 

It took us 16 hours just to get from Vientianne to Pakse. Well we wanted to take the sleeper bus at first but since we were already at the station at 11 am so we decided to take the local bus which was supposed to be a 12 hours journey.


*this part was written in Pakse*


So how did we end up spending 16 hours on the bus? Kamu tengok la tu kobis berapa banyak.. Ada motosikal lagi..
This is the most flexible bus service that I've ever encountered.  They don't only take passengers but do errands as well. We stopped many times along the way to pick up packages and parcels (^^")

And yang paling nda bole blah...Bole ni driver brenti sejam lebih to help out his friend whose bus broke down by the side of the road. Tinggi btol sikap tolong menolong...

We arrived in Pakse around 4am and surprisingly there was this hotel which has no lights on and still opened, as claimed by the driver. I was reluctant at first because the sliding door was neatly shut but when I try to slide it open, it was unlocked!

A guy was sleeping underneath a mosquito net and we woke him up... Paid $8 for a 2 single bed fan room. Showered and dozed off for a bit and hit for the 4000 islands.

Okla... Mau smayang maghrib... Will continue this when I'm free..
