Mellow Yellow Bikes

Hello, dear friends! Today is declared an emergency holiday here and I miss MYM so I have the time to post. For those who have been asking about our situation here, no, we are not affected. We're on the other side of Bangkok, a bit far from the chaos suffered downtown.

Bicycle has been a popular transportation in the history of Thailand. The picture above is on display at PlearnWan Museum in Hua-Hin, showcasing the old ways of life in the old Kingdom of Siam. Until these days, bicycle is used not only by laborers or lowly people who can't afford four-wheels but even by middle-class employees to go to their workplace and students to school or university.

Here's an antique tricycle displayed at Privacy Beach Resort and Spa, our recent retreat hotel in Pranburi Province, Eastern Thailand.
This antique tricycle has this classic yellow couch decorated with bright sunflowers. Thanks to my daughter for taking all these first 3 photos. She shows a deep interest in photography and she's aware of the memes I have been enjoying. She says, "Mommy, here's for your Mellow Yellow Monday entry," as she shows her captures. Hmmm! Grateful mom.

Biking saves our environment as it doesn't need fuel. It is also a great form of exercise. So I really support my kids for their love for biking.
