Driving Thailand: Nakorn Sri Thammarat Route

On this one day trip,  we visited Nakorn Srithammarat. It is one of the largest cities in the South of Thailand.

Windmills of your mind

On the way,  we were amazed by these incredibly huge windmills. There were approximately over fifty windmills scattered on both sides of the road. Wind is a great alternative source of energy.  It is environmentally friendly as this renewable power source does not emit greenhouse gas during operation.  Aside from these it is clean and does not consume water.  Hua Sai, where these windmills are located, is definitely stepping up their game with these non-conventional power source. Hua Sai is a district in the Southeastern part of Nakhon Sri Thammarat.  It is in between Ranot of Songkhla Province and Pak Phanang district.

We couldn’t get near the windmill as it is prohibited. I think this is not only a source of clean, affordable energy but could be a great tourist destination.

 

Finally in Nakhorn Sri Thammarat..

After almost three hours drive,  we reached our destination, Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan, the main Buddhist temple in Nakhon Si Thammarat.  Its main stupa is called Phra Borommathat Chedi (Great Noble Relics Stupa, the center structure), which was constructed sometime in the 13th century and has already underwent several restoration works.  This 178-meter, bell shaped stupa is the most prominent structure in the temple.

Other prominent features of the temple include

  • Countless seating Buddhas. These are found on the right wing of the temple upon entry.

  • The reclining Buddha
  • Temple museum. It displays valuable artifacts which dates back to Bangkok period.  The collections were actually donations of visitors as part of their merit-making to the stupa of the temple.  The museum is a significant educational hub not only on an artistic standpoint but also in terms of history and culture of people before. This is a marvelous place to bring kids for some history lessons.
  • A forest of Chedis. Surrounding the main chedi are smaller ones. There are almost two hundred of them that it feels like you are walking in a forest of towering,  tall trees.

5 Reasons Moms Should Wig It Out

Why not,  right?

A wig should be a must in any Mom’s wardrobe.  We’re not talking about clown-like wigs. We’re talking about wigs that actually look and feel like they’re your own hair. Yep they have gotten so advanced these days, thanks to modern technology. These beautiful,  fashionable accessory is popular among top Hollywood celebrities like Gwen Stefani,  Beyonce,  Kylie Jenner,  and of course Lady Gaga. It’s nothing new for fashion models  as well. Coco Rocha, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid are just few of them.

Now Mommies, here are reasons why we need this in our wardrobe.

Protection for our natural locks.  As hair is definitely our crowning glory,  keeping it healthy is important. So protect them from all sorts of chemicals and stress. Whenever a need arises to get your hair done, and especially if it involves putting on hairsprays, styling gel, or whatnot, pause and get that crowning glory in a box instead.

Let’s give our natural hair a break.  Is there a mom here who has not had hair waxing,  hair rebonding,  hair curling, hair stretching, hair oil treatment,or even a simple trip to the salon to get her hair done in one point in her life?  Probably, none.  I had been blessed with strong,  thick,  jet black hair but with all those fuss about hair-rebonding and waxing,  well,  I gave in and had them once.  My hair has never been the same again.  And aside from this, age,  stress,  and neglect have taken its toll. If you and I are on the same boat, subjecting our hair to further stress is way too much.  Let it rest and rejuvenate,  and wig it out instead.

They’re easy and affordable.  Putting on a wig is easy peazy.  While it takes hours to go to the salon (well because of terrible traffic), and another few hours of excessive shampooing and conditioning,  and chemical-inundated hairstyling, it only takes minutes to put on a wig.  So you’d still have more time to do some other important Mommy stuff.  And also,  wigs are affordable,  some are even cheap.  That one time hair rebonding I had cost me $60, while wig online although some could cost you over a $100 there are many which costs as low as $10 only, and mind you these can be worn again and again whenever you feel like it.

Luxury of choosing the perfect style.  One issue I oftentimes encounter in the salon is the incompetence of some hairstylists to get it done accordingly and properly.  On the other hand, wigs are perfectly cut, colored,  or styled.  So, wigging it is the perfect solution.

Lastly, Moms can be fashionable too.  The taboo on wearing wigs is simply gone,  gone for good. Individuals of all walks of life are into wigs.  The reasons for wearing could vary but whatever the reasons are,  wearing a wig is just simply the new in thing nowadays.  If they are in, why can’t we?

Love this!
..and this.
This is one fashion trend that Moms ought to have.  It is safe,  saves us time,  and could boosts our confidence without hurting our hair and our pockets.
