CNY Special - Trip to Thailand

My family and I spent our Chinese New Year in Hat Yai, Songkhla, Thailand. It was tiring and somewhat hectic but I get to taste new food besides of those available back in Malaysia. The weather was nice for photography too! Click the pictures to enlarge. Due to an unexplained reason, Blogspot failed to upload some pictures here. So head to my Facebook album then: Trip to Thailand
