145 Phetchburi

Went at last to see King Mongkut's out of town palace last weekend... and forgot to put a sim card in my camera.....

...lucky that my friend had his camera on his Blackberry.

Rama IV's observatory and rainy season out of town retreat. Loved it.

European imitation architecture, just as he had them paint them on the murals in the temples of Bangkok.

His theatre watching balcony...

The lane for the visitors... and that no overhanging eaves look.

143 Limbo

Canceling rental contract, finding home in Jakarta, removals company quotes, clearing out wardrobes and storage rooms.

I'm here but I'm no longer attached. Nowhere land. Limbo.

Living the memories of the apartment, living the memories of this space. Those that have gone. Post it on craigslist and let someone else live their life on the things I've lived and relived my life upon and at....

and selling up on the old unwanted for the new place stuff.... as we get older it is easier to flick the not so perfect....

140 Vibhavadi

To the architects again today to see the latest sketches and updates.

Bathroom discussion. Mood boards and stuff.... made the thing too small, concern about cosy cottage rather than spacious gallery.

Eventful week landing a job in Indonesia....
