Streets of Hat Yai

Seems I’m the nationality of Malaysia for almost 25 years now, 6th of January 2008 was the first day I stepped in Thailand. Local people says “What a wasted!? Stay in Malaysia but have never been to Thailand?” Why are they saying that? It’s because Thailand is one of the most nearest country to Malaysia.

Finally, I, together with some of my fellow Lomographers had a LomoTrip to Hat Yai for our first trip ever in the year 2008! We traveled from Kuala Perlis (northern part of the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia) to Hat Yai city by a rented van. Every of my sight were totally changed just like a single-click after we had across over the boundary between Malaysia & Thailand. The environment, road-signs, wordings, vehicles, buildings and street poles all along the highway are totally difference. Especially the street poles are really outstanding like no others. Its covered by so many wires. I’ve started to shoot while we’re on the way to the destination. The journey took us for about 2 hours ride and reached the street of Hat Yai just in the afternoon. Tell you what I love the most in the street. It’s the colors! The entire streets are covered by the contrast and colorful signboards!

Together with the Thai’s words, it gave me a very great mood for Lomo shooting. The transports and drivers are just waiting for you everywhere. I’m still not very sure are these a taxi or a mini-lorry. The small-sized vehicle can fit in many passengers. You won’t lose your way while you’re in the street. If you want massage, they can bring you! Besides that, Hat Yai is also a great place for shopping. We bought so many things such as clothes, delicacies, bags and accessories along the street. There is also a big market located in the street. In the market, we’ve ordered fried “Kuay Teow”, fried rice & cold Coca-Colas for our lunch. The market are huge and fulfill with the so much of goods! Some of the buyers can speak Chinese too! That’s easier for us to communicate each other. The people are so nice and polite. We won’t get scold for a free-style shooting. Ha Ha! “Shoots Non-stop” is our slogan that day. However, we have just spent our time in Thailand for 14 hours only. Of course we promise ourselves that we will spend more time in this beautiful country next time. Seriously, Thailand is a great place for LomoShooting. So if you wish to come here too, here you go. I had found out a little bit information regarding Hat Yai. (http://thailandforvisitors.com/south/songkhla/hatyai.html) or (http://www.world66.com/asia/southeastasia/thailand/hatyai) “SEWADEEKAP!”
