One of the best buys at Chatuchak, I customised a tote bag for myself! There’s also t-shirts, mugs and caps.

Tea break at McDonald’s, trying their new spring roll pie. Really is just spring roll with a different ‘crust’.

Dropped our bags at the hotel and out we go for dinner at Featherstone Cafe. Going to meet the guys who arrived in Bangkok today.

It’s a very beautiful place.

There’s an area spelling trinkets, healing stones and hats.

Look at the drink! This is Wild Gardenia, got this because of the colourful ice cubes. I feel like Alice in Wonderland.

Food was good overall but the braised beef cheek which was from their new menu wasn’t, so that was a risk.

bangkok day 1 – greyhound cafe . pla thong mookata

Too early.

First time we had to take the airport shuttle to board out planes.

20180820_0009596705653264935585284.jpg

_

Once we have left our luggage at the hotel, we went to get some snacks at 7-eleven, as the Greyhound Cafe at Siam Center isn’t opened yet. Yes, we arrived Bangkok very early.

Decor in Greyhound Cafe was beautiful. Loved the greens.

20180820_0010492915839992791400737.jpg

The food wasn’t as good as we expected though. Beef was chewy tough and pork was a little tad dry. Drinks was alright but I wouldn’t go back for just the drinks if the food wasn’t good.

Then it was dinner at Pla Thong Mookata. It was the girl’s first time having mookata in Bangkok.

Finally got to see our hotel room at the end of the day.

Although the toilet looks like it was build to be shared. One side toilet, the other side shower but there’s only one door which slides to whichever side that was in use. *face palm* Door was quite translucent too, can see shape and colour, so we can’t even use the basin while somebody is showering or pooping or peeing.

snacks to buy from bangkok

Koh-Kae’s tom yam cashew nuts. These may be quite difficult to find as people usually buy in bulk if they see them, somebody like me. 😁

Mdn26TiU9DrOP3UV1xfD

My mum loves this but I haven’t tried it before. A bit waste luggage space because it’s 2/3 air. I should just bring an air tight container next time and pack everything in.

Uy93OYPia1vGE3XC0G4x

Lay’s! This new flavour is really good!

L9GiZcRd1CprGHhIpQ6s

Siam Bananas. I prefer those individually packed bananas from 7-eleven. Quite difficult to find too, the whole shelf will be empty in the evening.  (*Do take note of the expiry date.)

mSI9cB5Y5hW4ekL15svV

These for quick yummy meals; basil meat stir-fry & Thai spicy salad mix

681WiVadxgEidwMVvZ7j

Thai milk tea, although not as good as those freshly made from the stores but better than nothing.

My happy buy!

Saw this in the Starbucks store and I really wanted it. Got my friends and sister to help check the prices and stock availability but… it was out of stock since 2 weeks ago and they are not going to bring in new stocks. 😩

It’s $15 more expensive than Singapore. Bo bian la. Even if we manage to buy from ebay, the shipping is not going to be cheap too.

Most stores in Bangkok only have the thermal bottle and tumbler. Coffee Press is out of stock. Lucky the Starbucks near my hotel is quite out of the way. 🤗

Back to reality

Good thing that I took leave today too. If not I’m going to have very bad post-holiday syndrome.

Woke up at 12pm. ✌ Lunch is chicken rice, drenched with dark soy sauce and ginger sauce.

Woohoo! Mama packed fish head curry from Johore Bahru and we’re having it together with chee cheong fun. 😋

2017-226-04

People can just come in and takeaway.

2017-226-03

There’s a ice cream parlour! Mmm…

2017-226-05

2017-226-06

Ordered a garlic pepper chicken and pancakes. Both servings are very small, nothing amazing about them. There’s too much baking powder or soda in the pancakes, so it tastes bitter at the end

2017-226-07

2017-226-08

But the elderflower and golden honey ice cream was good. So just go for the ice cream only, the mains are just meh.

2017-226-09

McDonald’s

They have this new curry crab pie, which is not as saucy as I hope it would be.

My shopping done in 20 mins!

Hahaha! Feel like a pro, fast & furious.
Because I’m just back to repurchase (same design, different colours) from the few stores in Platinium Mall that I have been to before.
– December No. 5
– White Studio
– This one store at level 1, 3 row from the entrance, turn right, walk to the end. Last 2nd or 3rd store on the right hand side.

While on the way back, bought this pack of pork shoulder at the stalls outside Centralworld. Yums.

2017-226-12

Couple shoe! Lol.
Mine is a lot dirtier because I wear it very often.

2017-226-13

I see cute bunnies, I spend money.

At the airport! Good thing we started our way 4 hours before flight.

Got my Thai milk tea.

2017-226-16

Pad see yew. Same brand but it tastes different from the last time we had it. Not as flavourful.

2017-226-17

I always see banana cake and I finally tried it. Nice but is little dry.

2017-226-18

My first ugly DQ vanilla cone.

mini moon at bangkok – day 3 . crêpes & co . let’s relax . claypot river prawn tom yam porridge

Left the hotel at 1pm. Woohoo! The guy was watching Armageddon on TV.

Love this romper that I bought from Platinium Mall yesterday! Love the deep pockets, I should have gotten more. TC says we can go back again. ✌ I’ll just quickly aim for those few shops, take & go.

2017-225-01

 Crepes & co. 

We’re here at this quiet and cozy little place for brunch.

2017-225-05

Menu. There’s a separate book just for the pictures. 😅 I specifically chose food that looks pretty. Hahahhaha! 😋😋😋😋

2017-225-10

My nutella latte, they spell it as nuttela on the menu… so I was lost for a bit. 😅 Look at those little cookies. Tiny but yummy.

2017-225-09

Appetizer was a garlic shrimp with pita bread. TC likes it, especially the garlic. Lol lol.

2017-225-07

Supreme Crepe. Got egg = yummy, and it sure is. There’s ham, bacon, egg, mishroom, cheddar cheese and bechamel sauce. Love it! 😍

2017-225-08

Dessert is served! This is… 😍😍😍

Look at all the ingredients, we were struggling to finish… hahaha. Until the boss came and ask us how was it because he thought we don’t like it. 🤣🤣🤣

Time for my favorite massage!

2017-225-13

I was thinking why my masseuse so small size but I was wrong. She’s good at it. Shiok sia.

[Update] Not suitable for body massages because bone against bone = pain. Lol.

2017-225-14

Having a mango sticky rice is the best part after massage. We had our lunch at 1.30pm, massage started at 5pm and it was a 3 hours long.

Mad hungry. Every time the masseuse massage anywhere around my waist area, the hunger pangs double. 😫

Claypot River Prawn Tom Yam Porridge

Here it is. Misstamchiak has been here before too. I couldn’t tag the place but if you google the english name it will appear on the map. It’s right beside the road.

2017-225-16

2017-225-17

First u choose the base, then the set. Ignore the ‘rice included’ because that is just confusing. Hahaha. Then, add more ingredients if you like at the second section.

2017-225-18

2017-225-19

TC had the pork porridge with braised pork and soft boiled egg. It’s good but kind of reminds us of the braised duck porridge but thicker.

2017-225-20

I had tom yam porridge with river prawn and minced pork, topped with a soft boiled egg. Not very tom yam leh, just spicy but good enough. Prawn wasn’t very fresh.

2017-225-21

Overall, it’s good but probably not worth that much effort to travel all the way, unless you are going to the Rod Fai Night Market that was somewhere across the road.

Bath time!

The intergalactic bath bomb from Lush is so pretty, like paddle pop! A lot of glitter in my bath too. By the way, Lush bath bombs are cheaper in Bangkok than in Singapore.

2017-225-22

This hair mask from Etude House is very very good! My hair is very soft and smooth now.

2017-224-10

2017-224-09

Our spread. 😋 *drool*

2017-224-11

I wanted chocolate cakes, the nutella cake I first ordered was not available. Changed it to Dark chocolate fudge, also don’t have. So fated la… I changed to the Milo sizzling roti instead.

Oh god. Thank you fate! Hahahhaa. This is awesome. It’s crispy roti prata at the bottom with cookies and cream ice cream, topped with marshmallows and milo bites with milo sauce. There’s this very nice burnt caramel fragrance, almost like creme brulee. Damn good. 😍

2017-224-12

Their popular Thai milk tea crepe cake is like pale in comparison liao. 🤣 Still good if you don’t want something overly sweet and it’s kind of refreshing.

2017-224-13

Told TC that I’m getting the Butterfly Pea with Lemon.
👦Butterfly pee??? You drink their pee?
👧… 😐

Drink is served.
👦Nice?
👧Butterfly pee is sour. I think they get nectar from lemon trees.

I walked so much today, I think my feet is dying.

Yes la~ Shop very fast because I was very selective this time round. Shopped mostly at first and second level of Platinium Mall.

Wanted to go Let’s Relax for massage but all fully booked today because it’s Mother’s day over here. 😑 My tian.

We did manage to book for tomorrow.

Dinner at Som Tam Nua. This is actually my first time at this restaurant, the queue was quite long even though we were quite late.
Pork shoulder was good.

2017-224-16

Fried chicken is very fragrant, crispy and juicy. Yums.

2017-224-17

I wasted the glass noodle salad because too spicy. Spoil my taste buds.

2017-224-18

Hmmm… interesting. They put cinnamon in honey lemon.

Starbucks – Community Store

This Starbucks here supports paying back to the community by giving part of their proceeds to charity and free used coffee grounds for the community to bring home to use as fertilizers.

The ambience here is really really good too. I’m so happy that our hotel is just a few mins walk away.
