We Went to See Nick!

Yes, Nick Vujicic was in town and we could not afford to miss it, especially that he was speaking at a stadium that’s not really far from our place. I already wrote a post  about Nick in my other blog, but this  is more of our experience  as a family from lining up to getting into the stadium to listening to Nick’s message.  Now that sounds like fun and easy but no, it took long hours of lining up and patiently waiting.  The kids did such a great job at the waiting part and I couldn’t be any prouder!

Long lines considering that it was only 5 pm. The show doesn’t start until 7.

Now this looks messy, but actually the coordinators did a good job at managing the crowd. We did not have tickets so we were in a different line. Everybody cooperated so it wasn’t really that difficult.

All done! We’ve signed up, and the waiting was over. We’re going in!

Since we did not have tickets, we got this stamp instead. Roi proudly showed it off. Had to take a photo of it before it runs off!

Inside now, but we are still waiting for Ria and Joey to enter those gates. They were in a separate line,and we got in first. We don’t want to go anywhere lest we lose them in the crowd

Ok, those who did not have tickets will have the privilege of sitting on the floor!

The stadium was not that packed yet, but those seats belonged to those who have tickets so they’re considered taken.


Ok so we thought that the waiting outside was long enough but we had to wait for more than an hour here, too!  It was a bit difficult not to be sitting on a proper chair especially that long.  So we tried to do some “selfie” shots, Ria and I!

Oh no, I think it’s only photo#4 that’s considered a “selfie” shots because I was holding a camera. The rest of the photos were taken by Joey– photos #1 and #3 caught me looking at Ria, checking whether she is showing her teeth when she smiles. I was really nagging her to smile with her teeth shown!! 😉

The twins– they really look alike, don’t they?

So here’s Nick!! Yay, it was such a blessing to be able to see him in person and hear him speak.

According to the kids,  all that waiting and lining up was all worth it!  It was a beautiful night.


Nicholas James “Nick” Vujicic (/ˈvɔɪɪ/ voy-chichSerbian: Николас Џејмс Вујичић, Nikolas Džejms Vujičić; born 4 December 1982) is a Serbian Australian evangelist and motivational speaker born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally as well as physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability and, at the age of seventeen, started his own non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs. Vujicic presents motivational speeches worldwide, on life with a disability, hope and finding meaning in life. He also speaks about his belief that God can use any willing heart to do his work and that God is big enough to overcome any disability. (Source:  Wikipedia)

Family time at Lumpini Park

Last Sunday we went to Lumpini Park with our family friends to watch Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in concert.  The concert was for free, so we thought it would be a good exposure for our homeschoolers who are very much into music.

We were two hours early, so we took time to just enjoy the place.

Zoe and Ria feeding the birds
And the birds feasted...
Me and the kids rode on this little boat...
Off we sailed away!
Shortly after our boat ride, we joined with the crowd in watching the concert
Since we came early, we got a very good spot
We ate fruits, chips and fishballs while watching the concert. It was fun!

We were so glad we went to Lumpini that Sunday.  Watching a concert like that for free sure was a real treat!

You can see more Lumpini Park photos here, and concert photos here.


IKEA fun!

In my previous post, I mentioned that a friend of ours invited us to go to IKEA last Sunday.  It was our first time there and we really had a blast!

Here are some fun photos I took during our trip to IKEA last Sunday…

Ria and her friend Zoe pretending to enjoy a meal on this white dining table set.
Nice, isn't it?
What I love about Ikea is that you can actually lie down on their beds, sit on their couches and you never get reprimanded by guards or any store personnel. I sat on this comfy couch and pretended to be asleep. :)
And the whole family joined in for some picture-taking.. (i wish our living room is this nice) haha!
Our IKEA model!
...and big sister joins in the fun!
