Thailand's Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall

Phra Thinang Ananta Samakhom or the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall was built in the early 1900's by King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). The original throne hall though (with the same name) was in the Grand Palace complex that was built by his father, King Mongkut (Rama IV). When the throne hall was finished, King Chulalongkorn had the old one demolished and adopted the name for the new one.  However, he wasn't able to see the completion of Ananta Samakhom because he passed away five years before it was completed. The architecture was patterned after the great European palaces of that time and was designed by a Prussian architect, and then by two Italian architects.

Recap 2017, Hello 2018

The past year has been full of treats and surprises and as always, I treasure each experience especially those spent with family and friends.

Here are some highlights of 2017:

- Went out of our comfort zone and opted to 'homestay" with another family in Baguio. An old couple live in house where we stayed at, and they kinda reminded me of my parents. They also have tons of vegetables and flowering plants around their home. And guess what, we enjoyed the experience so much (they made us feel that we were part of their family) that we spent another week with them during our second trip to Baguio last year.
