Phuket 2011

To get away from the stressful flooding news, we decided to spend some time in Phuket, our favourite place in Thailand.

We stayed at Katathani Phuket Beach Resort, in the Kata Noi Bay. 

The room was very spacious and comfortable.

The bathroom was so big!

Beautiful view from the room.

Bangkok Flood

Thailand experienced severe flooding during the monsoon season in 2011. Major flooding began in the north of Thailand during August and extended through the northeastern and the central part of the country. The flooding reached Bangkok in October. Although the downtown areas was defended from inundation, most people in Bangkok were stressful as a lot of groceries, water, household, and some durable merchandises could not be transported from the factories upcountry causing shortage supplies in the supermarkets.

We collected as much water as we could for fear of water shortage during the flood.

Some groceries were stocked too. It took almost a year to use up  all of them.

Jerusalm, Israel

Panorama of the Temple Mount. The Dome of the Rock, as can be clearly seen on the right, is believed to be the spot where Mohammad ascended to Heaven.

Inside the Old City

Inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, there lies the Stone of Anointing, claimed to be the spot where Jesus's body was prepared for burial by Joseph.
The Edicule of the Holy Spulchre

The 8th Station of Via Dolorosa, which is the road in the Old City of Jerusalem and the path where Jesus was led in agony from the place he was convicted to the site of crucifixion.

Jewish people grieve at the Western Wall, or the Wailing Wall, which is a remnant of the Western Temple Mount retaining walls.
