Thai arts

I went to this Thai arts place. They taught me how paper umbrellas are made it was very interesting and I will share it with you today!

First they start by taking the wood from the SA-tree and soaking it in water for a while.After that they squash it with a hammer for about one our.

WOW!!

Then they will soak it in water again to make the pulp. When that is finished they would stir it in a big tub place. And then the will put it on a big tray and leave it in the sun cool for an hour. Then they will peal it off.

It is about 10km away from Chiang Mai town. It is pretty close to Chaing Mai airport.

I couldn’t find one in English

To yummy to even describe

Other things about the coffee shop

It is a little bit hard to find because the sign is pretty small but if you look t the map very carefully then you will probably find it.

They have billions of places to take pictures (my mum loves taking picture) and they have a good view. It is not really big and does not have a play ground so it will be a better place for children if they had a bigger place.

Over all

Over all I think that this coffee is great for photos but not really for playing.

My hamsters

Check out Hamster Diaries for more information about hamsters!

My hamsters

I have three hamsters called Sugar,Pepper and Latte they are all so cute. My hamsters are all winter white Russian dwarf hamsters.

Why I like hamsters

I like hamsters because they are fairly easy to look after and since they are nocturnal¬† I can see them when i get home from school. They don’t need to many things and don’t need to go to the vet unless they are ill or hurt.

How about you?

Answer all these questions

Will you have time?

Will you have the space?

Will you have the money if your hamster gets sick?

Will you have the love that a hamster needs?

Will your parents let you?

Do you have local pet shops that sell hamster supplies?

where will you be in 1 to 2 years? If you will be going to university in a few years for example you will not have enough time for your hamster.

If you answer all these questions with a ‘yes’ I think that you will be a great hamster owner.

Wat Doi Kham

Attraction

Thai people believe that if you go to this temple and make a wish, it will come true. They have a lovely view point and since it is on a temple in the mountains you could either take the car or walk up the steps. If you want to buy cheap flowers to offer to the Buddha. You can buy them on the side of the road on the way their.
