map of Laos and Thailand

To reach this place you need to take mini van for around 3 1/2 hours drive from Chiangmai City to Mae Sai. The landscape is hilly and divided by Ruak River that flows into Mekong River. These rivers then form a natural boundary like a Triangle shape between 3 countries LAOS - to the east of Mekong, MYANMAR - to the north of the Ruak and THAILAND - to the west of  Mae Khong.

collage about Laos

Here we go...Laos by just 10 - 15 minutes boat ride from Mae Sai, Thailand. See the photo top right, the show photo of people caught Narkha, on type of big creatures from Mae Kong river. Scary huh?

Oh! if you think you can cross over to the rest of Laos with through this Island. Try laaaaa...maybe end up in Laos Prison, who knows...kekekekeke then can be famous by writing a book in Laos prison. 

market

To me not much thing to do on this Don Sao Island. They have vendors selling their items which mainly items made in Myanmar, Laos , Thailand and even China. Didn't buy anything. To me this place more like 'Ang Mo' market. For us Malaysian whose money becoming 'tiny as ants' can just look look see see laaaaaa... 

I don't like it much here... Loas kids here asked for money. They are not even begging. Its like a MUST give. Guess they may grown up become a thug if this continues. They are not mild kids like in Seam Reap and others. They are more aggressive. Scaryyyyy!!!! Thank God ! I don't look foreign to them so they just disturb the 'Ang Mo'. Ngeeeeee..lucky me.

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down.

In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old. I guess, am afraid to start one because I read many side effects if use it wrong.  What is the side effect if you use retinol wrong?  Retinols can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. So, it is advisable to apply this at
