When we came back from our bangkok trip on the 28/12/2009. We found a bird's nest at the back of our house, on a potted plant.May be the bird thought it was safe to lay eggs there! Nice pattern eggs... Two cute little fellow came out after about 2 weeks of hatching.During the hatching period whenever i get closed to the plant ;the mama bird will just flown away...to distract me? Poor little fellow! The "bed" is hard!! After a few days, you can see the feathers are coming out! Under the watchful eyes of mama bird! She did try to attack me once while i was taking the picture. I could only take this picture at night when she is finally settled on the nest. She just sat there very quiet but the eyes were big and watchful.

Erawan Waterfalls in Kanchanaburi Erawan Falls has seven levels dropping down over 1,500m. You can walk to each level fairly easily on the paths but if you're aiming to get to the very top then it's a bit of a scramble up the cliff - it's worth the effort though! You can swim in some of the pools created by the falls. Around the park are also several caves where you can explore and see some weird and wonderful limestone formations, stalagtites and stalagmites! With its spectacular seven-tiered waterfalls, Erawan National Park is one of the most popular natural attractions in Thailand. Located about 65 km northwest of Kanchanaburi town along Route 3199, the 550-sq-km park is situated in the Tenasserim Hills running along the Thai-Burmese border. The highlight of the park is undoubtedly the multi-level waterfall, one of the most powerful and beautiful in Thailand. The seventh tier is said to resemble the shape of Erawan, the three-headed elephant of Hindu mythology, and from which the park draws its name. http://www.discoverythailand.com/kanchanaburi_erawan_waterfalls.asp small fishes nipping on your leg...just like spa fish! Swimming at the 5th tier water fall...all mat salleh around. Fishes are as big as 30cm or more;swimming around.Looks like "Kelah" but blueish in colour.The guide said it is a spirit fish and it is poisonous .
