Beach or Pool?

This is such a very beautiful sight to behold from a high-rise hotel! Sooooo relaxing, isn't it? But can you notice the oil spills lining this beach? It's mainly caused by banana boats, the tractors that carry them to the beach and some jet-skis. Who should be blamed for this place's destruction?

This photo was taken by my then 10 year-old daughter, JD, from our room on the 19th Floor of Nusa Playa Hotel, a 5-star hotel in Jomtien, Pattaya during our department retreat in summer 2008 . Because of the oil spill, we didn't allow our kids to go swimming here as advised by our Thai friends.Tsk!Tsk! So they just enjoyed swimming at the hotel's pool on the 5th Floor (shown on photo below taken by Josh).
It's choosing between nature and man-made. But what better choice is left? Mom and dad know better so sorry to our kids for being KJ (kill joy): in not allowing them to contract possible skin, lung problems, etc. from this polluted beach. Poor new generations...
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi Miss A! Wow! This is a pretty place. Sana someday we would be able to visit Thailand.. Anyway, sensya na po mtagal na akong hindi bumisita. Fifi is sick, she has congestion and fever, so she can't sleep good, and that means, I can't sleep at all... I'm a walking zombie now... I already have a doctor's appointment this coming Monday for her. I am getting sick as well, having sore throat right now.. It's probably coz the weather is change=ing here, it's getting cold..

Just dropping by here while I can.

hope fifi and you will get well soon! God bless.

that first photo tells of a potential photographer, lol. i commend the subject of this post. you're right, there aren't any choices left for the kids these days but to content themselves with the manmade over nature.

hayyy, i discovered some bad news today, i lost my PR2 sa fashion blog due to laziness. you know, didn't think it would totally sucks. well, new lesson to learn, hehehe.

nice A said...

thanks gleenn, both jd and josh have the heart and hand for photography. i should have posted their pix here just taking photos at the beach instead of swimming but i don't want to highlight them here, lol.
tsk!tsk! anyway you can easily regain your hard-earned PR.kaw pa!

You should have tried jetskiing there it's sooo much fun. I wouldn't recommend swimming in any of Pataya beaches either. They're only good for jetskiing.

daya naman eh ako unang nagcomment ala reply :'(
