The Sweet Escape of Thailand's | Pt.1Saturday, January 07, 2012
Probably you could guess where i've been on last few weeks by seeing the photo of the Golden Mermaid statue. Indeed, we've been traveled in several provinces in Thailand. And for your information, this holiday wasn't planned at all as initially we were only joking to go holiday in Thailand. But, suddenly, the holiday became a reality even without properly planned (you don't think that without the properly planning, it doesn't mean we (family) should abandon all the important things of ours like ourselves, luggage, and most importantly, the passport and money). Wkwkwk kalaulah keperluan penting kami sengaja ditinggalkan, apakah boleh kami sampai ke sini, apakah boleh kami melancong menyelinap masuk ke negara orang, dan apakah boleh kami merakam kenangan di segenap tempat? For sure we couldn't have it all...
Let's hear the story from Another Cinderella Story about Percutian di Negara Gajah Putih...
We posed in every place, and therefore we could have a lot of photos during the presence of us in Thailand.
1. Samila Beach, Hat Yai, Songkhla, Thailand.
The history of Samila Beach and the Golden Mermaid:
It's a well known beach and has long history. With golden mermaid statue sitting on the rocks, it's a symbol of this beach. It made from bronze. There's the tale that the mermaid came from the sea at one of beautiful nights. While she was cleaning her hairs with golden comb on the beach, the young fisherman met her. But his apperance made her frightened and escaped to the sea. The fisherman tried to find out and waiting her back but it was useless. She didn’t come to the beach again.
The beach locates at the north of Songkhla province lying from Son-On cape and connecting to the area of Samila cape. It's beautiful beach with white sands and has small islands at the background. On the middle of the beach, there's Golden Mermaid to welcome all visitors. Most of travellers visit this beach and they would like to take photo with her. (Source)

The history of Krue Sae Mosque and its incident:
Krue Sae Mosque or Krue Se Mosque (Malay: Masjid Kerisek, Thai: มัสยิดกรือเซะ), is located in Pattani Province, Thailand. It was begun in about 1583, but was never completed because of a power struggle between the sultan of Pattani and his brother. The present structure dates to the 18th century CE and features a mixture of Middle Eastern and European architectural styles.
On 28 April 2004, during a period of insurgency by Islamic nationalists in the southernmost provinces, 32 suspected guerrillas took shelter in the mosque. After a 7 hour stand-off with Thai military personnel, they were attacked and killed, along with about 80 others. The attack was made in contradiction of orders from the Minister of Defence to end the confrontation peacefully, and has been the subject of an international inquiry, which concluded the military had used excessive force.

This is just the beginning. There're many more stories that you should wait if you're interested to know anything related to Thailand...
P/S: My dearest Malaysian people, who is descended from Siamese? And i'm pretty sure you know more related to all these places compared to me myself.
