Friday Photo- A Thailand Rubbish Receptacle

Friday Photo 012

Dustbin, rubbish bin, garbage can, trash can, waste receptacle, whatever you want to call them, this is Thailand’s version. I have seen variations of this all over Thailand and South East Asia, and I know it’s very unsexy subject to talk about, but to me even small details like this make my adventures more interesting to me. (also a way of me rebelling against just posting photos of cocktails and tropical beaches etc)

This Thai trash can is ingenious little invention for a couple of reasons. Firstly it is made from recycled tyres, and secondly in it’s design. If you notice that the main thing is made from a huge tractor tyre that has been turned trimmed and inside out. The legs are made from what I believe to be motorbike tyres that have been cut in half.

Combining excellent design with recycling is displayed here in a fantastic way.

Friday Photo – Monkey Business

This week I have been filming a special video for something special that you will hear about very soon.  I was filming these videos where I am to talking and thought it would be fun to do it with a monkey sitting on my sholder. As a result, a lot of out-takes as these monkeys are mischeivious little fellas.

Anyway here’s a photo of one of my Gibbion friends and a video below that I also caught of a monkey playing with a local lazy dog.

Friday Photo- Mountain Ghost Busters. Thailand

Whilst out on my motorbike exploring a mountainous area in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, I found this interesting little scene. In this picture you can see three different things that have been placed at the bottom of this small mountain to protect the area from spirits.

You see these all over Thailand in the jungles and mountains and I have heard various explanations of what it is all about. I honestly don’t know the exact stories behind how it all works with these protectors from spirits but it is certainly interesting.

Hey, if you know more about these spirit protectors, let me know in the comments below.

Friday Photo- Spot the Impostor.

Spot the Impostor.

Little bit different than usual but very relevant to my current adventure. The quitting caffeine by testing out my little experiment of extreme indulgence. In case you missed it click here to catch up on my coke story so far.

Anyway, so this weeks photo,

Spot the Impostor

I suppose this is the rebel in me doing a little middle finger to the coca cola company, in an effort to help my self stay off the dirty dark stuff for 30 days. Can you spot the cheeky impostor ?

Friday Photo 007 – BMX Mods, Manila.

More South East Asia crazy vehicles. This is a BMX bike that has basically had a metal cage welded to it. It is used for deliveries and mostly delivering big bottles of drinking water. My only thought is that when fully loaded they must be hard work to pedal because the bike has tiny wheels and no gears. You can see more like this in my video about modified BMXs in Manila.

Friday Photo 006- Philippines Jeepney

If you know me, I have this weird obsession with getting excited by different types of transport around South East Asia. This is a Jeepney, one on the images that is directly associated with the Philippines. The story of how Jeepney came top be in the Philippines is also very fascinating. This goes right in the top 10 of my favorite South East Asia ‘crazy vehicles’.

From WikipediaJeepneys are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. They have become a symbol of Philippine culture.

Friday Photo 005- Not for Sale

This is a really interesting picture, on Mindoro Island, Philippines. I took a huge five hour walk around the island on one of my missions to get off the usual beaten track and discovered this gem of a weird sign. We have all seen properties for sale around the world, and the usual way it goes is that there will be a sign outside saying ‘For Sale’. But, I have never (and I bet you haven’t either) seen a sign on a property that says ‘Not for Sale’. There must be a real intresting story behind this, we can only imagine.

Friday Photo 004- Beach Bum

This is a slightly rare one. I usually do not do photos with me ‘posing’ in front of wherever. I have been to alot of amazing places but I feel weird taking pictures with me in them, suppose it is the rebel in me, saying just because youv’e been to this place doesn’t mean you have to be in all the pictures . I feel like there is almost a pressure to be  taking these pictures to prove that  was actually there.

I dug this rare one out as I’m getting excited for my upcoming beach adventure next week in the Philippines. I think that this particular picture was on Hua Hin, Thailand early this year.
