Life with Thai amulets

Thai amulets were made by individual Thai monks who had performed blessing mantra to give us the protection & good fortune for those who are fated to possess it. As we now view the COVID-19 pandemic happening worldwide and the number of cases for death are increasing daily, we do really need the blessing to help us tide over this period. We are true believers of Thai amulets and its power to help us with our lives regardless good or bad times. We do our daily prayers and with its blessing, we are able to overcome some of the crisis that most people are facing head on.

What do you understand about Thai amulet?

There are many mysteries in the world that one may not be able to understand but we truly believe in its existence and how it had helped us over the years of growing up. It had helped us to avert certain accidents & disasters that may had happened without it. One of the experience we had was when driving on the highway, we managed to avoid any form of injury with 5 cars crashing together. It was very fortunate to be protected in a way that we were unable to explain but indeed grateful for its blessing though. Another incident during my childhood day where I had met an accident with a car hitting me while crossing the road. My classmate was with me and witnessing what had happened. He told me that he saw me hit by the car and I flew up in the air before landing on the road with the car moving away from me. As I had landed on the road, I found myself awaken after a few seconds and people were gathering around me. Someone did called for the ambulance and while waiting for the ambulance, I did a check on myself and found only a few bruises and cuts without any serious injuries.

I was taken to the hospital and did the X-ray to be sure that there are no internal bleeding or broken ribs, etc. After a few hours of checking in the hospital, I was discharged with a clean bill of health. It was from that day onwards, I truly believe the existence of God, Buddha and every other religions that can help to protect us as long as we have faith & belief. It has been more than 40 years since I have been wearing the Thai amulet around my neck and helping me to overcome obstacles, accidents and disasters. I am indeed grateful for its blessing and sincerely hope for anyone who are in possession of your personal amulet to have the same protection & blessing in life.

As we had mentioned that only people who are fated to possess the amulet will find the right one that will bless them & help their lives. You may want to check and see if you have any sort of feeling that attracts you to own your personal Thai amulet and receive its blessing.

With the situation of COVID-19, we sincerely believe it will be good to be blessed with good health and fortune to help us tide over our lives.

Good advice on how to tackle COVID-19 pandemic

  • Do wear masks & social distancing while in public
  • Washing hands with soap often as it will prevent you from getting the infection especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay at home whenever possible as it is the best cure for the current situation until the vaccine cure is made available

Be safe against Wuhan virus

As of today 29 January 2020, it has been announced by the China’s National Health Commission that the death toll due to coronavirus in China had already risen to 132 and found 1,459 new cases. This means the confirmed cases at the end of 28 January 2020 had risen to 5,974 people having the coronavirus.

Since the starting of this virus, the place in Wuhan is now practically can be described as the ghost town since the residents are advice to stay in their homes while cars being banned on the roads. The basic food items in Wuhan like milk and eggs now become scarce.

With the rising of this virus and there is much fear of it spreading, most airlines are reducing the flights to China. It seems like this flu-like virus has already been spreading throughout a number of countries but none of the confirmed deaths been announced outside China. But there has been confirmation that this virus is transmitted person to person in countries like Germany, Vietnam, Taiwan and Japan.

This type of virus known as coronavirus will cause pneumonia which is similar to other repiratory infections that can be spread person to person from coughs or sneezes droplets.

It is said that scientists in Australia have managed to replicated this deadly coronavirus in order to find a solution against this deadly epidemic that caused more than 100 deaths. At Doherry Institute in Melbourne, they had managed to grow the novel coronavirus from a patient sample in the cell culture outside China. This will allow them to validate and verify whatever tests conducted with comparison of the sensitivities and specificities of this virus in the laboratory.

In view of the current outbreak of coronavirus in China that afflict thousands of people which will likely to last for a few months. No one will be able to predict how long it will last since it started in December 2019. The basic precaution will be quarantines and isolation measures while hand washing and wearing masks can help to reduce the amount of infected people. This virus seems to be like Sars. While Sars is controllable, we are hopefully that this can be also but we won’t know until a few weeks later depending on the outcome.

Be safe and try not to expose yourself in crowded areas. Practice good personal hygiene like washing your hands frequently and wear mask if you have flu or cough. It will help to eliminate any sort of spreading and hopefully it will just die off in time to come. Everyone helps to contribute their parts and we will survive this ordeal.

Thailand holiday vacation

Arrived in Bangkok and managed to drag our luggage all the way to our hotel that we booked numerous times in our vacation over those years. It seemed to be one of our best choice in selection for our vacation as we loved the environment and convenient location as well as the good services they provided during our stay.

After we checked in our hotel, we went to Terminal 21 to have our meals. It was very convenient to walk to Terminal 21 from the hotel as it was just around 5 minutes stroll.

Pad Thai

We ordered two different version of Pad Thai to try and turned out to be very tasty and nice. For all our trips in Thailand, we would ordered this particular dish as it was much tastier than those places we can get in Singapore. Somehow the taste is much better when you are getting it from Thailand itself. Maybe the seasoning they used for Thai people is different from those we get in Singapore.

Christmas Tree

We were there in late November 2019 and we could see that the streets were already filled with Christmas decoration.

Mango sticky rice

Another dessert that we would never miss will be the Mango Sticky Rice. It is always the delight to taste the freshly cut mango with the sticky rice. Though we tried making our own mango sticky rice here in Singapore, we still loved to get our mouth filled with it when we are in Thailand. It is something that we will never miss to try during all our visits in Bangkok.

This time at the MK Restaurant, the food overall was just okay unlike the last time we were here. Somehow the food wasn’t as nice as we had previously experience. Wondering why…

We continued shopping at Terminal 21.

Our trip lasted for 7 days as there were lots of shopping to buy stuffs as well as tasting different types of Thai food. There were lots of photo taking and we believe that you too will be able to enjoy yourself when you visit Thailand. We had lots of fun while having our vacation and also kind of relaxing as we were not in tight schedule since we were doing our own free and easy travel vacation unlike tour packages.

Of course if you book tour packages, you can covered more attraction sites but it would rather be kind of tight schedule. We loved to be travelling free and easy as we could control our timing as where we wish to visit without the stress.

Here are some more photographs before we end our trip in Bangkok. Unfortunately we cannot upload all since we took more than hundreds of photos during this trip.
