My Love of Siam

(From Google)
I saw clips of this movie years back but I never really watched it till last year. I fell in love. It talks about hope, love, family and friendship. Every time I watch this movie (still am, and is watching while I'm typing this) it gives me hope and it make me happy and sad at the same time.

June of 2013, a friend and I went on our very first travel outside of the country. Where? to the beautiful country of Thailand. One of the main reason why i wanted to join the trip was because of this movie, so I spent my free time researching the locations where they shot the movie.

 So let me show you my Love of Siam.

The Scala Theatre
We started with the Scala Theater. This is where Mew tried to ask Tong if there was something different about him. This is also the theater where we watched Man of Steel!!! and it was Awesome!!!

Swensen's Ice Cream Place
This is at Swensen's. Its an Ice Cream parlor. To be specific this is located in Siam Square right across GYPSO, the place were Donut asked Tong to buy her earings. I love this place!!! the desserts are really good and I remember visiting two branches of Swensen's while i was there. This one was taken at the same branch where they shot the movie. :) A for effort huh?!! teehee..

Siam Center || Discovery Center || Siam Paragon (its all connected)
 This is where Mew and the August Band had their concert. I am actually standing at the exact place where Ying was at while waiting for Tong. Awesome right? Hell yeah!!! Teehee...

Some of the members of August Band ( Tor, Wanpy, Nine, Pchy, Non and Arm)
Not complete but here are some of the members of August Band. You wanna know something really really really cool? scroll down!

WE MET ONE OF THEM!!!! My idol Chanon Rikulsurakan (@djchanon)

Me and my idol Ladies and Gentlemen
I cannot explain how I felt when I saw him pop his head out the door to check who was waiting for him. He was wearing a mask because he was sick at that time but we told them the we came from the P.I and here now to see him (sickness will not stop the photo shoot.. lol)  Let me show you what he posted on his Instagram account.

(taken from his own Instagram Account)  - Thx u my Philippines fans. U came so far and just made my day.
I feel like a Super Star. When we got to our hotel room I couldn't wait. I immediately accessed IG to see if he posted anything and he did!!! 

I hope I meet the entire cast next time
