[Volume 10 Issue 5, #2023]
Time Difference: How Sensitive Are You??
World Time Zone Time Difference
呢大半個月嚟, 都係寫關於我月頭嘅曼谷之旅, 希望冇悶親大家.. 今日轉口味寫下討論題材嘅貼, 都係同旅行有關, 我哋講下時差.. 多次旅途上, 我都遇到對時差特別「執著」嘅人, 「執著」於自己國家嘅時間而不敏銳於當地時間, 奇哉也.. 以下例子皆以一位馬來西亞人為背景..
第一類
第二類
結論
第一類, 講親時間總係要refer返大馬時間, 而當別人同佢講緊當地時間嘅時候, 佢總係要多把口問「咁係大馬時間幾點?」.. 有啲唔係幾明啰, 既然身在該處就當然用返當地時間啦, make sense嘛, 仲要理馬來西亞幾點做乜?? 除非係要同返在馬來西亞嘅人聯繫就令當別論.. 下下要顧及兩個時間, 我覺得會亂晒大龍囉, 哈哈!! 最可笑係, 隻錶都仲依然係大馬時間, 每次睇時間都要計餐飽.. 而我呢, 一上機就即刻校隻錶去目的地時間啦..
for the past half a month, i have been writing about my recent Bangkok trip, i hope i did not bore you.. today, I wish to have a discussion topic post for a change, yet still related to travel long, let's talk about time difference.. in many of my trips, i have come across people who are very "firm" towards time difference.. "firm" in the sense that they stick strongly to the home time but are never sensitive to the local time at where they currently are, how interesting..
Type 1
Type 2
Conclusion
the first type, who always insist to refer to their home time whenever they talk about time, or when someone tells a local time, they naturally want to ask "so, that is what time back home??".. i find this rather peculiar, being at a different place away from home, it make sense to use the local time right?? why still need to bother what time it is at home?? unless we plan to connect to somebody at home, then it's a different story.. i would find it confusing to always remember two different times, haha!! what's more funny is that, the watches still show the home time, and whenever there’s a need to know the time, there’s a need to do some calculations first.. as for me, i always tune my watch according to the destination time once i board the flight..

Bangkok: A 90/10 Leisure/Business Trip (Q & A)
我最近嘅曼谷之旅基本上係寫完㗎喇.. 不過見手機內仲淨低幾張相, 倒不如就拎埋出嚟寫多篇完結貼咁啦.. 史上第一次成個trip嘅相通通曬冷, 唔係我寫得多, 而係我根本冇乜點影, 哈哈!! 今日就以呢個問答貼埋尾啦, 唔係你所以為嘅旅遊貼士或有奬游戲, 只不過係回答讀者留言所問嘅一啲問題啫.. 再一次證明雖然我(冇時間)回覆留言, 但係我有去逐條睇㗎!! enjoy.. :)
i am basically done with my recent Bangkok trip with the previous three posts.. however, i saw a few remaining photos in my phone and thought, might as well just use them all up for one finale post.. for the very first time i "show hand" all photos of a trip in my blog, not because i wrote a lot but because i took very few photos, haha!! so, a Q&A post this is, not about travel tips or giveaway contest, but rather to answer some questions posted by my readers in the comments sections.. it proves again that though i did not (have the time to) reply to your comments, i actually read every single one of them!! enjoy.. :)

我對上兩次去曼谷係八年前同一個月, 都係當年嘅公司出錢嘅, 一次係去training, 而另一次係公司team-building旅行.. 再之前嘅泰國遊呢, 就係2000年世紀初去過合艾兩次.. 一共四次trip就係我學會少少好基本嘅泰語同埋點樣嗌某啲食物.. 今日呢篇係曼谷悠遊系列最後一貼, 我知好多讀者都很期待睇我食過啲乜.. 好啦, 好似寫遊記一定要寫美食咁, 請大家細賞.. 不過先此聲明, 我唔係(好記得)影咗好多相, 而且我冇食冬陰功, 冇食芒果飯.. 多謝大家捧場!! :)
my last two trips to Bangkok were in the same month 8 years ago, both sponsored by my then-company, one for training and the other a company team-building trip.. before this, my Thai experience was in early 2000s when i went to Haadyai twice.. these four trips were when i learned a little basic colloquial Thai as well as their local food.. as the final post for this series of Bangkok travelogue, i know many readers can't wait to read about what i had eaten throughout the trip.. okay, like a food post is a must, here you go.. but please pardon me as i did not (remember to) take many photos, and FYI i did not have tomyum and sticky rice with mango.. thanks for reading!! :)

我哋原先都冇諗住要extend咁多日嘅, 之不過因為公共假期關係, 機票特別貴.. 所以決定逗留耐啲, 因為俾多兩晚住宿都經濟同值得過俾peak-season嘅額外票價啦.. 一共有八日咁長, 都有諗過可以花一兩日去清邁, 巴提雅或者大城府, 但係最終放棄呢個打算.. 與其咁緊湊, 倒不如輕鬆自在留喺曼谷啦.. 就咁, 除咗見客嗰一段時間, 我哋其余時間就周圍去行下(當然中會有空檔返旅館擺低嘢同休息)同埋搵幾位嗰邊嘅朋友見下面..
we did not plan to extend stay for that many days initially, but due the overlapping public holidays, airtickets were more expensive.. hence, we decided to stay longer in Thailand since two more nights of accommodation was a lot more economical and worthwhile than paying for the extra peak-season airfares.. having 8 days in total, we thought of an excursion to either Chiang Mai, Pattaya or Ayutthaya, but we ditched the idea and ended up taking it easy and relax just in Bangkok.. therefore, besides the meeting, we spend our time "exploring" around (with intermittent breaks back to hotel to unload and take rest) and meeting up with a few friends there..

相信唔少讀者都很好奇我上個禮拜去咗邊.. 唔係咩又遠又高檔嘅地方啦, 泰國曼谷之嘛.. 呢次可以話係個九私(下遊玩)一公(幹)之旅, 去嗰邊見個potential partner, 然之後趁假期之便, 自己extend幾日逗留喺曼谷玩.. 其實冇諗過要寫呢個trip嘅遊記, 只係有讀者提醒咗我.. 點講呢?? 曼谷係「普遍」至好多人都有去過嘅地方嘛, 我其實冇乜特別嘢好寫喎.. 更何況今次已係我第三次去, 2007年十月都去過兩次, 所以新鮮感不大.. 都好, 與其絞腦汁諗要寫咩貼, 倒不如拎我(記得)影低嘅少少相片, 實行以相片分類說故事啦.. 不過放心, 呢個系列會係易消化嘅(因為只有3篇貼), 唔似得日本遊記咁heavy(我知悶親大家), 哈哈!! 希望各位慢慢觀賞啦.. :)
i guess many readers were curious where i was away to for the past week.. nowhere far nowhere exquisite, just BANGKOK only lah.. it was a 90/10 Leisure/Business trip, went there to meet up a potential partner and then extended stay for leisure considering the long holidays.. i actually have not thought of blogging this trip until some readers "reminded" me with their expectations.. i mean, Bangkok is like so "common" and many have been there before, i have nothing special that i wanted to blog about.. furthermore, this was my third visit after the first two in October 2007, hence even less excitement.. okay, rather than having to scratch my head for topics, i shall just blog in categories base on the very few photos i (remember to, sic) have taken.. no worries, i promise you this will be a light series (only 3 posts) unlike the heavy Japan trip posts (i know they bored you), haha!! hope you enjoy~~ :)
