在曼谷要找有免费上网的咖啡店其实也不难,只是每家店都有自己的规矩。例如麦当劳,你付了钱后,收据上有一组14位数的号码 ,那就是你的wifi密码 ,在主页上输入就能连接网络了。如此还能确保真正有消费的顾客才能享用wifi服务。
我试过在玛哈沙拉堪一间本地也设有分店的Black Canyon Coffee喝咖啡(如图所示的绿茶红豆冰沙,80铢),跟工作人员讨wifi密码,对方要我出示身份证。我房问她:马来西亚身份证可以吗?她说可以,把我的身份证拿去不知干什么,良久才给回我,并递上一张上面写着wifi密码的字条,还真是麻烦。

(Nowadays, it’s getting easier to find a cafe which provides free wi-fi service for customers in Bangkok. At least you can get relatively high speed wi-fi in all McD stores. Just pay for your food and get the 14-digit wifi password printed on your receipt. Last week I went to this Black Canyon Coffee in Maha Sarakham for a drink and asked for their wifi password. I was required to produce my ID,and then it was taken to the counter for some registration or whatever process that took such a long time to complete, before it was returned to me with a slip with a wifi password written on it. Very troublesome indeed.)

早餐在便利店买和风冷面便当。(This morning my breakfast is this cold noodles set bento from Dawson, 398 yen.)

然后
搭巴士半小时抵达北野天满宫。 (Then I took a 30-min bus to Kitano Tenmangu shrine.)

短短4个多月内,马航又告‘出事’,这次是MH17客机在乌克兰领空遭不明人士击落。经历过MH370失踪时间惊魂未定的马航,如何走出伤痛,浴火重生,十分令人关注。

在这么多国内外航空公司之中,我搭乘次数最多的,就是马航了。身为它的忠实顾客之一,我今后还会继续以行动支持,没必要因为接二连三的空难而不搭飞机或改乘其它公司的航班。
下半年还有两张已订的机票待用,都是马航的。等它在八月旅游展促销时,应该还会预订更多机票。
从第一次搭飞机开始,马航就给我留下许多丰富的回忆,搭乘马航多次至今还没有什么不愉快的经验。在这艰难的时刻,没有理由不撑它到底。

(Sadly, MAS was hit by another disaster, but it seems the airline is getting more support from the rakyat this time around. As a regular flyer of MAS, I would definitely give my support during its difficult time. I have two more MAS flights to catch in the second half of the year, and most probably I would book more air tickets in the next promotion.)

我在京都下榻的9小时旅馆,一共住了四晚,感到相当满意,也值得推荐给朋友。(I stayed in this 9 hours capsule hotel for 4 nights, and I will come back again.)


纯白色系的装潢,令人感觉清新干净。(The white-themed lounge is clean and brightly-lit.)

不但客房分男女层,连电梯也泾渭分明,不准擅越异性区的雷池一步。(Men and women are supposed to take different elevators.)

淋浴洗刷区的置物橱柜。(The locker room in the shower area.)


自拍与淋浴洗刷区,当时已穿上旅馆提供的睡袍。(The pyjamas is provided by the hotel.)

可自行控制睡房里的灯光。对某些人来说,这也许跟睡在‘棺材’无异吧。(This is my first time sleeping in this ‘capsule’, which looks like a ‘coffin’ to some people.)

对于不及六尺之躯的我来说,这个空间已相当宽敞。(The capsule is quite spacious for me.)

每层都有整20多间睡房。(There are more than 20 capsules on each floor.)

比较麻烦的是,就算你连续住几天,还是要每天把行李搬上搬下,check out后再check in。(The problem is you need to check-out and check-in again even if you have booked your capsule for 2 nights.)

睡房内有先进电子仪器帮助你入眠。(The state-of-the-art electronic device will help you got to sleep.)

其中一个周末我搬去这家旅馆,距离京都车站10分钟路程,因为那天9小时的睡房已被订满。(On Saturday, i moved to this ryokan as 9 hours was fully booked.)

其实也是一般的胶囊旅馆,但是收费颇贵,周末一晚要收3990圆。(This ryokan is located about 10-min walk from Kyoto Station. It charges 3990 yen for a weekend night.)


睡房与睡房之间的距离相当密,隔音差,感觉欠缺隐私。(The capsules are quite close to one another, which means less privacy.)


‘睡房’里的床褥。(The mattress is not as comfy as 9 hours.)

比9小时好的是,这里有电视机。但是,我从来都没有去开来看。(TV is provided but who cares? I don’t remember ever switched on the TV.)


大堂里的休息室,住户亦可在此用餐及交流。(Hotel guests can also eat, rest and mix with others in this lounge.)

第三次去马接新村吃晚餐。(This is the 3rd time I visited Machap Baru New Village for dinner.)


同样是光顾锦兴。发现人潮比以前多,可能是口碑相传的缘故,这家‘价廉物美’的餐室挤满了疑似来自外地的食客。(We visited Kim Hing restaurant again. This time we found that the shop was crowded with people and we waited nearly 1 hour before our food was served.)

麦片香鱿鱼。(Deep-fried sotong with Nestum.)

青龙菜炒豆芽。(Green dragon vegetables fried with tau-geh.)

薄荷鸡。(Chicken stir-fried with mint leaves.)


六道菜共RM98。表面上看比去年来的时候贵,但六个人吃又嫌份量多了些,其实还是可以接受。(Five dishes for RM98, the portion is a bit too much for 6 pax.)

又搭凌晨6点的MH797班机回吉隆坡。这次才发现到二楼候机处的柱子上贴有这个布告: 泰文写着‘禁止躺在座椅上’。英文显然比较客气,翻译成‘请勿躺在座椅上’。

无论如何
,还是有不少候机的乘客视若无睹,躺在座椅上会周公去。我忍着睡意坐了片刻,最后也还是躺下去睡了半小时。
幸亏机场的保安人员执法没那么严厉,看见旅客躺下来睡觉也不来刁难,往往都是一只眼开,一只眼闭。

(I’m taking the 6am MH797 flight back to Malaysia again.  This time I noticed that there was a signboard on a pillar at Level 2, arrival hall of Suvarnambhum Airport, telling the passengers ‘not to lie down on the seats’. It seems that the English translation is more polite, whereas the original Thai version means ‘Lying down on the seats is prohibited’. Apparently, some passengers still ignore the notice, including me. It’s quite tough to stay awake and sit tight waiting here for the whole night before the check-in time.)
