  1. To add to the news on Thailand:
    When I checked-in at the Thai Airway counter for my 1-way flight from Hong Kong to Bangkok a couple of days ago,, the agent did ask me if I’ve proof for an onward journey. I had to show her my onward eTicket to Singapore.
    Out of curiosity, I asked her what if I’d opted to purchase a train ticket to Singapore after I arrived in Bangkok instead, her answer was :” but you are okay now”.
    I should have asked further but didn’t.

  2. I listened, interesting conversation! Would love to see “Elephants in the Coffee” I would love to travel to India! Some day!
