At the moment they are still working on widening the beach along Beachroad, it's almost finished.

Vegetarian homemade lunch



Tasty cooking is one of my favorite activities, also here in Thailand, perhaps precisely here in Thailand because there is so much variety of fresh vegetables and herbs. I am happy to have the opportunity to cook on my balcony. Made a nice lunch again today. I cook by feeling and see what is available. I never cook exactly the same thing twice, it has a different taste every time.In the evening I usually eat somewhere in one of my favorite restaurants.

Full Moon & Smog



The first Full Moon of 2019, called Wolfmoon, will be dominated by the Lion on January 21. It is a Supermoon and Bloedmoon in one, also called a Superblood moon. In addition, there is a Lunar Eclipse .

Unfortunately due to the smog there is nothing to see of this special phenomenon here in Pattaya (and probably throughout Thailand). The only thing I see is that, despite the smog, the people here continue to burn the fire. That is also the cause of the smog. Here in Asia, the fields are being burned on a large scale in January for the new harvest. Not only here in Thailand, but also in the surrounding countries.

Blue Monday



Today is Monday, January 21, better known as Blue Monday. With the necessary protection I did my daily shopping and made a walk. Fortunately no Blue Monday feeling, but nice appetite and made a tasty homemade dinner. It tasted delicious.

Smog



Since a day or three, maybe longer, I don't know that exactly anymore, Pattaya is also suffering from the smog. In Bangkok (much larger and busier in terms of traffic) smog is now a huge problem, there are now even large water cannons deployed and air force planes are going to spray water on parts of the capital to reduce pollution. Of course, wearing a mouth cap is also desirable here in Pattaya.

At sunrise you can already see what a day it will become, it should start to rain a lot, not a small shower of half an hour, but just half a day of rain and love all over Thailand. Maybe we will see a blue sky again afterwards.

With this kind of weather type on the beach it is also not a cheerful place, the view over the sea is infinitely gray. Fortunately there is a breeze with fresh air. Because I am now also a lung patient, I have to take the walks along the beach. In Pattaya itself, it is hard to cope with all those air-polluting traffic jams and coaches.



Despite the smog the walking goes well again, my muscle strength is completely back in my legs and the balance is also reasonable. I try to walk more than 10,000 steps every day (about a little more than 8 km). Today even more than 15,000 steps (more than 11 km). When my walking route is along Beachroad, I regularly pop in at Central Festival for a visit to the toilet or just cool down and look around, have a drink or a bite to eat. Walking in the dark in the evening is also getting better, and there is also plenty to see here.

K.Place



K.Place appartemencomplex is close to the center. From there close to the beach, shops and the market. Since May 2016 I rent a room here. I really like it, from my balcony on the 7th floor I have a nice view.

Hilton Hotel Pattaya



Today I enjoyed the whole afternoon with a friend on one of the terraces of the Hilton Hotel on the Beachroad in Pattaya. The hotel is partly built next to and on top of Shopping Mall Central Festival.

It was wonderful to stay, it is a real 5-star hotel with lots of luxury and beautiful spaces. The view is beautiful over the beach and the sea at Beachroad. We laughed a lot and talked a lot without being disturbed.

Or Ah Harn Thai Restaurant



At Or Ah Harn Thai Restaurant it's always busy, and you know why? The food is very good and tasty.

New Year - 2019



The first day of a new year. The day started nicely and ended nicely. Today I enjoyed the beach again.
