Sajek has a majestic beauty that cannot be fully described in words nor can it be shown through any form of visual media. It’s something you have to experience for yourself.
Eaten at a place in Bashundhara Residential Area, Dhaka.
Shot this beautifully lit Bull at the Hotel Cox’s Today in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
This mango flavored juice was one of my favorites when I was a child. I haven’t seen it for a long time until a few months ago when this seemed to have come back. It’s not the best tasting mango juice that you can find on the market, but it does bring back some memories.
Arguably, no mangoes are harmed in the making of these juices. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Saw these while going through the Marine Drive. Looks like these might be used for some sort of construction work.
Continuing yesterday’s photo post, here’s another cool thing that you’ll encounter after entering the Mermaid Beach Resort premises. It’s a nice “Today” view made of wooden panels that gives you important information about the day, including the high tide and low tide time for your safety at the beach.
One of the perks — not that there are many — of getting a City Bank American Express Credit Card (Gold) is that when you’re leaving the country, you can enjoy a somewhat luxurious lounge at the Shahjalal International Airport.
The lounge is pretty calm and beautiful. It has a good selection of free food that you can eat before you start your journey. There’s free WiFi with adequate speed to do some heavy browsing.
The lounge is accessible after you cross the immigration point, so you will likely not be spending a lot of time in there as you can only cross immigration after you’ve checked in, which is no more than a couple of hours before the departure time.
Why did I say that there aren’t many perks of getting an Amex card? Well, turns out, in Bangladesh, most merchants accept either Visa or MasterCard. American Express is not accepted as widely as Visa and MasterCard. Not that you can live without carrying cash in Bangladesh, but those places that do accept card transaction, they usually don’t support Amex cards, which is a bummer.
After a serene drive through the recently-inaugurated Marine Drive in Cox’s Bazar, you will reach the Mermaid Beach Resort. The place is extremely expensive to live in, but all that money is worth it. You’ll get a different flaire of the beach that you can’t get from the regular hotels or resorts.
Pictured is the entrance to the resort. You can visit it to enjoy some delicious food at its restaurant. You’ll see why I’m saying that Mermaid Beach Resort gives you a different taste of the environment. One that is hard to find elsewhere in the city.
The arrival area at the only international airport in Bangladesh. Having traveled through so many international airports abroad, where you have to walk painfully long distance inside the airport to get from point A to point B, when coming back to Bangladesh, this airport feels ridiculously small. But, when you come back from a 30+ hour journey, a small airport makes it that much easy on the body.
Can you tell what the irony is in this picture?
