Hanging out at a Bangkok Net Cafe

Just landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport here in Bangkok and my connecting flight to Lahore, Pakistan is still in 2 hours. The airport is huge and we had to take a bus to the disembarkment area. It’s just before 5PM here but my watch says it’s already 7PM in Manila.

I don’t have anything else to do right now but sit tight and wait for my next flight. I exchange about $50 into Thailand Bhat which got me around THB1,780 (1THB = 1.36PHP).


First thing I saw was an internet cafe here in the airport so I checked it out and how things are — just can’t help it. *hehehe* Anyways, they charge THB100 per 20 minutes or Php408 per hour. Damn, that’s expensive. The speeds are good though — 2.34 Mbps on 2Wire (1.4Mbps via PLDTPlay). Is it really that expensive here or it’s because I’m at an airport?

My phone’s roaming service is working but I don’t know if I can use it to check Mobile Gmail.

Oh, I got this really cool Samsonite laptop Backpack last night at SM Dept. Store and it’s a great catch, though a bit pricey. I’m able to carry both the 14″ Presario and the Rebel XT with this one with much more room to spare. Will post about more this one when I get back.

  1. Hi Abe! Please post a photo of your open Samsonite laptop backpack, with the Presario inside. Thanks! :-)

    (To give us a sense of the amount of available free space left in the bag…)

    Hi Abe,

    Beware of roaming fees. They have been going up all the time.

    The last few times I had been out, I really experience sticker shock. Try to minimize its use unless necesary.
