Bangkok Day 1

Edited/


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I have a good friend who is going to be a NIE Trainee Teacher really soon and is currently still providing quality English and Math tuition for Primary and Lower Secondary students.

Do contact Naz at 90269340 if you are keen to engage his services! (:


I've been procrastinating to get the Bangkok posts ready cause the number of pictures in the SD card really scares the shit out of me! Zonia is much more hardworking than I am, she long started drafting the posts and had them published. Boohoo!

I started sorting the pictures only now (Sunday, 6th February) since it's the Chinese New Year holis and I've been slacking for days. I didn't turn on my laptop, let alone replied much emails. Bad bad girl. Just each day in BKK, we have about 200 photos a day. That's the same number we had for the Hong Kong trip! If you haven't realized, I created an additional tab to hold the Hong Kong posts for easier reference to the trip! Another reason is also cause i spent A LOT of time getting those posts ready! Teehee! So go read through if you haven't or read through AGAIN if you are visiting Hong Kong soon! I've noted down all the MUST-VISIT shopping places, tourists sites and restaurants!

Bangkok Day 1.

 my new qoo luggage from mabel dear!

That flight, it was only Papa, Mama and I.
Zonia went there 4 days earlier. She followed my Aunt and her young daughter we had a meeting at Pattaya.

I even bought a prepaid card that has internet access at the airport while waiting for airport transfer to our hotel. (:

We had to wait till about 2PM for the rooms to be ready so as Platinum Mall was just nearby, we decided to walk over for lunch first! I remember reading that there is a rather popular and affordable Japanese restaurant there.

Platinum Mall

All the wholesalers in City Plaza probably buy their stocks from here. Most blogshops owners as well. The things there are dirt cheap. Dresses are probably only SGD$6 onwards!

There was quite a queue since it was lunch time! 
Fuji Japanese Restaurant located at Level 6 of Platinum Mall.

i think we were probably famished lol

The bill came up to about SGD$40+. That's very cheap for so much food right! (: (: (:
The downside about this restaurant is that their tables are all very small, so my aunts and cousin had to take the next table! 

After lunch, we walked back to our hotel to check in! (:
Yippeee doo! Our favorite hotel in Bangkok has got to be Baiyoke Sky, the tallest building in Thailand! 

Their hotel is 81 stories high I think?

Was disappointing we got a lower level this trip, the last trip a few years back, we stayed on the 61st level? ):

Zonia and I had a room to ourselves.
The room is hugeeeeeee! (We later changed to another bigger room cause we came to realize this room is a smoking room! )

Pictures of the room!

I changed out of my maxi dress cause the weather was scorching!
Shorts and tee!

City Complex at Pratunam is just below our hotel! (:
The main reason we chose Baiyoke Sky time and time again is cause its located IN the shopping district! 

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
loads of blogshop clothes

We headed to massage! 
Bangkok means cheap massages! 

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
For the past years we visit BKK, we always come to his massage parlor which is near our hotel. 
A Full body massage is at like 198 baht for 1 hour, less than SGD$8! 

We ended up having massages everyday. lol!

Shopping timeeee!

papa and i!

The skies turn dark by 6 PM in BKK! 
The night markets start to open. I remember one of our previous trips to BKK, this lady who opens a stall tells us that they come after work. So they hold 2 jobs a day. Really hardworking huh!

Zonia and I bought a bag each from this uncle.
This is where I got my pink red bag with gold buckle that everyone asked about! (: 

Really cheap, 200 baht = SGD$8. 

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
sushi!?

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
heavy traffic all day round
This is the hotel, Aroma Hotel, we stayed in the very first time we visited Bangkok! 
It's also very very convenient cause it's also in the shopping district. The down-side is that it's very old already.
