Wishlisted by Patricia Celso
"Little Patricia loves history, she finds new discovery, in every country. Where to be, where could she be? She said -- King Chulalongkorn for my ancient class, THAI want to see his GRAND PALACE." As a historian, we were taught by our professors that reading history books is like time travelling. It brings us to the ancient times. But what’s more important as a historian is to find connection between the past and the present. And I only find my way in revealing the truth and whispers of history whenever I travel. For that, I am not only discovering the world, but determining my mission as student of history. When I started my journey as an AB-History student, I first learned about the early civilization of Southeast Asia. In that course, I was introduced to the world of ancient cultures. But what struck me the most in that class, was unfolding the mysteries and stories of the early Kingdoms in Thailand. Since then, I’ve been dreaming to visit the country and discover the intricacies of its history. To actualize this dream, I want to visit the GRAND PALACE in Bangkok. Considering that the palace once became a home of their crowning rulers from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s, I want to explore its architecture and functioning halls. Reading the history of Thailand is not enough to give justice as to how beautiful their journey is as a “Land of the Free”. I want to uncover their historical odyssey in this palace as if I can touch their abstract past. My mom, who had been to Thailand when she was young, told me that the GRAND PALACE has temples and museums situated in the area and mural paintings and artefacts displayed in every corner and walls. Because of what she said, it enticed me more to visit the place because I know that those concrete things will be my guide to experience things that have transpired in Thailand centuries ago. So, if you think you are a sentimental wanderer like me who also wants to divulge on the memories of Thailand, make sure to add this on your wish list.
