    It's still dry in central Bangkok for now, but the clouds are looking ominously overcast and it's just started thundering. Still, I reckon the streets won't be turning into rivers quite yet anyway

    I reckon rush out to buy the canoe now, it'll be cheaper now than during the rainy season.

    It looks gloomy over here in Chiang Mai as well. I wrote a little bit about this in today's blog too...

    Bucky, I think we'll need to get out the bamboo rafts again!

    What's up with all these news about drought anyway?

    ####, i'm not skilled in bamboo rafting.... tried it once in Chiang Mai.. fun but slow.. my friends capsized though, wonder how they managed.

    ya man, whats with the reports on droughts? No rain in the South? Or looks like the "rain making" team is working already...

    Yeah, I remember reading in the news that the rainmakers had some success in Hua Hin, halving the number of "at-risk" villages from 14,000 to 7,000. Is it the "side effect" of that activity that we got a taste of?

    Hmmm.. how about the Banana Boat instead?

    hehe banana boat.. thats a good one... I'll have to get a speed boat to tie it to though.. or a jet-ski? Wow, that'll be cool... cruising the village in a jet-ski during flood day. Talk of the village the next day.

    Anyway, rain has stopped.. no flood... lucky me.. dinner tonight as planned! TGIF!

    I'll be having a "geek's night out" tonight, reunited with my laptop at last! (fingers crossed)
