ZH’s first solo vacation in Thailand: Day 12 of 12

All holidays must come to an end. As ZH bids farewell to Bangkok, she walked away with chock-full of memories.

She woke up at 7.30am, still in a daze as she slept late the night before.

Day Twelve: Bye bye Bangkok, Selamat Pulang (Welcome home Kuala Lumpur)

We had about three hours at home. Whilst eating her breakfast, she viewed her travel photos on TV via Apple TV. She still managed to use the bathtub, packed her bag, and tried playing Uncle Vich’s game, before we leave to the airport.


Pack, pack, pack

And she also had a fun-filled pillow fight with Uncle Vich too.

Her last words at Uncle Vich’s condo: “bye bye Uncle Vich’s house, bye bye big bathtub.”


Her last masterpiece: ‘a smile in a smile’

Uncle Vich sent us to the airport, bye bye Uncle Vich.

In the plane, it was the one and only time that ZH played games using my Apple devices. Yiyi is very, very impressed.


Good kiddo, the one and only time she played games throughout the trip

Bye bye Bangkok. Bye bye Thailand.

Hello Kuala Lumpur. Hello Malaysia.


Bye bye Bangkok


Hello KL

Continuing from Day Eleven, I reflect on the day and take time to marvel at the wonders of ZH:

  • She only spent 35% of her pocket money
  • She stayed clear of games on my Apple devices throughout her trip. I offered her my iPad to play on board, after she finished the two books she brought along
  • She is sooo creative and expressive .. capture many different expressions of her. Can’t wait to start on a travel photobook for her

Thank you ZH for the wonderfulicious memories. 


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
