A Saturday Morning Starting Very Well!

in #life5 years ago (edited)

Today I'm going to share with you my Saturday morning, which started very well after reading my comments on Steemit and seeing a portrait of me by @sweettais.

A Saturday Morning Starting Very Well!

In this post I am going to show you this amazing portrait of me, then my walk and exercise at the Lumpini Park in Bangkok near the "Alliance Française" and my noon juice.

All photos are mine and taken with my Samsung phone.

I like to look at my Steemit comments in the morning and respond to them. This morning I had the pleasant surprise to see a comment by @sweettais saying:

Thank you for helpful information! I have a small gift for you- your portrait and hope you like it:)

I went to her profile and saw this portrait of me.

What a pleasant surprise it was.

I like this portrait very much and I'm honored that @sweettais has taken the time to draw a portrait of me.

That's the first time someone draws my portrait.

A big thank you to the artist that you see below.

As it is Saturday, my daughter and I left the house at 7:00 a.m. for the French lesson at the "Alliance Française" in Bangkok starting at 8:00 a.m. During the 2-hour class, I have time to do my walk and exercises at the Lumpini Park, and then have breakfast.

This morning it was raining a bit and it did not stop me.

At the left is the app showing what I did this morning, 30 minutes of exercises and 21 minutes for the walk. My weight is now maintained at 75.1 kg.

At the right is the map for my walk from the "Alliance Française" to, and then in the Lumpini Park.

During my walk I noticed the 3 garbage sorting bins and it reminded me of the ones I saw in Tokyo.

They have 4 different bins in Tokyo, as you can see below and I think that having 3 is already pretty good, providing that the content doesn't end up in the same truck, as I have seen it done several years ago.

This digital advertising is pretty recent and takes quite a large area of the building.

In the park, there are people doing Tai Chi every week.

I am using the fitness equipment in the park, which is starting to be in really bad shape unfortunately. It stopped raining at that time.

Walking back to the "Alliance Française" I took this photo of their new building that will open in August this year.

That was my breakfast at the "Alliance Française" like every Saturday.

I really enjoyed it while it was raining very hard outside.

Back home, to compensate for the morning calories, lunch was juice.

That's all for today.

I saw that picture of you too! Very nicely drawn, such a talented artist.

Thanks for sharing your Saturday morning routine! I've recently formed my Saturday morning routine. I have breakfast at a local cafe, then go to the gym on Saturday and after working out I stay at the lounge area to write/read etc for an hour or so before I go back home to spend the day with my family. Maybe I should write a post about it as well :D

Thank you @zhuwa for your comment and telling us about your Saturday morning. Yes, this will be interesting to read a post about it from you.

You are right, @gmichelbkk. What a great morning to wake up to! It is a real gift to be drawn with such precision and talent. And then, taking a stroll past all the Taichi-ers... with your earbuds in, jammin' to music, I suppose. Thailand is such a fun country to live in. Life is grand! Oh, and your breakfast looks superb.

Thank you @gungho for commenting. I don't listen to music, but motivational and self-development speeches. Breakfast is really good, I admit.

i really like the Portrait she has talent .
Every time i see your post about the morning exercise it encourages me but i am very lazy person not able to wake up in early morning :(

Thank you for commenting. It is just a question of habit. You can do it @imran-aslam!

Very intresting post

Thank you, I am glad you like it @sudheesh.
