Bangkok 2007- Day 3!

Bangkok 2007- Day 3!

I woke up early in the morning in my sleeping attire plus a sweater just to go to the ATM to press more money!
I think i really overspent in BKK even though i bought so little things compared to last time.
I really wonder what i spent on.

Back to the hotel again.

Here comes our breakfast, brought to our doorstep.

We were too tired to go out for breakfast.

We seem to come to this restaurant everytime we're in BKK and our last stop alwayz seem to be in MBK!

The restaurant's menu.
They serve reeeeeeeallllllllly spicy noodles!
The airport!

Our last minute dinner at the airport.
The food in Khaosan is so much better than the expensive food here.

Home Sweet Home.

and Happy Birthday to me =)

oh, and i'm going for yet another holiday next week!!
my god, now my mum is complaining about me alwayz travelling, but i'm love holidays!

Bangkok 2007- Day 2

Bangkok 2007- Day 2

Louis Vuitton- one of the upscale boutiques that makes up The Oriental Shopping Arcade.

The Oriental Shopping Arcade.

We've reached JJ, and the first thing we did was to look for food!
Now, they have this mini cream puffs everywhere which i didn't see the past few times i came.
I didn't try it but my friends did and they say it's not bad.

The sun's scorching and we were burning!
CTC only operates in the morning to about like 5ish in the evening on Saturdays and Sundays.
It's one of the world's biggest market, and you can't possibly finish it in one day.

Bing never fails to have this very simple but ultra yummy dish.
It's just egg with rice.
Even the rice seems very yummy!

Yummy fries, something i'll never be sick of.

The weather was too hot that we left Chatuchak earlier than planned.


We're back at the hotel again for a rest.

The pool seems very tempting when you're hot and sticky.

The hotel lobby again.

Now, this is what i call Shark's fin soup.
It's heavenly!
It has crab meat and mushrooms inside and i can't get enough of it.
It's way better than the ones served in Nam Sing.

You can find this yummy shark's fin soup from the stall right beside Watsons, the same stretch where White Orchid Hotel is.

Roadside food stands near MBK.

On weekends, the road leading to Siam Square and MBK will have some sort of flea market where you can find really cheap clothes.

At Khaosan, our favourite place in Bangkok.

I really love Khaosan lots.
Shopping is a little more ex than shopping at CTC but you get designer, hand made and vintage stuffs and its definitely better shopping at night as its more cooling.

Colourful Khaosan.

Khaosan is like a little world on its own separated from the other parts of Bangkok, it just feels so different.

You can chill out and people watch in Khaosan by the roadside like how everyone is doing.

Yummy food that can't really be found anywhere else are all here in Khaosan.
(at least for me i didn't see these roadside stalls anywhere else)

Best Kra Pow in the world!
Kra Pow is pork and chicken with rice, very nice indeed.

This is how Kra Pow looks like, it's a must try!

Chocolate banana pancakes, only found in Khao San!

My ultimate favourite food in Bangkok.
The banana melts in your mouth!

Massage in Khaosan.
There are lots of small massage parlours in Khaosan, finding one is never a chore.

Chilling out at Roof Top Bar, Khaosan.

The place is noisy but fun, apart from the stuff , we're the only asians there i think.

Whether in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand or Japan, we're alwayz drinking!

This is how the streets of Khaosan looks like from the bar at 2am in the morning.
It's like a ghost town, Khaosan basically operates between 9pm-12mid night only.

Pigging out again after drinks.
This is really tasty Pad Thai, it's nicer than what you get in many restaurants!

I love Khaosan lots!
The next time i visit Bangkok, i think i'll just stay in Khaosan, all my favourite Thai delicacies can be found here, i can chill out and party here, i can shop here, i can massage here, ATMs and money changers are in abundance, what more can i ask for??

Bangkok Trip 2007- Day One

Bangkok Trip 2007- Day One

Arrival at Bangkok International Airport.

I was ultra grouchy cuz i didn't even manage to catch a wink of sleep. :(

Check in at The Oriental hotel.

Our Superior Riverview Room.
Tha large king sized bed came with super comfy sheets and pillows that brought me to sweet slumber every night.
The bolsters are really heavy!

Genuine teak and soft Thai silk surrounds me!

The bathroom is amazing, bath tub is big and shiny.
It has 2 sinks and another private shower area besides the bath tub.

The amneties provided are really good!
The shampoo has a rejuvenating ginger smell which made my hair really soft.
Their body moisturizer was good too.
They even had a nail care set!

Mineral water, i'm still wondering why they were placed in the bathroom.

The connected cubicle that has the toilet bowl and the other private shower area.

View from our hotel room.
That's the Chao Phrya River.

Complimentary welcome drinks.

CD player.

CDs were there for us too.
We played these soothing music everytime we were in the hotel and now i love the piano even more than ever!

Extra sheets and pillows hidden in a basket under the bed.

Cutlery set for our needs.

The Oriental Hotel's history book!
A sealed copy of this book is on sale in our hotel room.

The hotel's main entrance.

At Erawan Shrine.
A compulsory place to visit everytime we're in Bangkok, not compulsory for me cuz i'm not a Buddhist but compulsory for Bing.

Lunch in JJ market.

Very simple rice and pork dishes but they're extremely tasty.

Crab + something salad, i can't remember what exactly but its not very appetitizing compared to others i've tried before.

This is really yummy and very spicy noodles!!

JJ Market was scorching hot and surprisingly quiet and not very crowded.
That makes it easier to shop around without too many people competing with me for oxygen!

After shopping at JJ, we headed back to the hotel for a short rest and headed to Chinatown for dinner.

We had dinner at Nam Sing which i thought was way overrated.

Duck's tongue.
The sauce that comes with it doesn't taste good enough.

Escargots, these were rather yummy!
but it would help if the snails were slightly bigger.

Golden mushrooms fried with butter but i seriously don't taste any butter.

Large prawns with glass noodles, these were reasonable in taste.

My fun travel mates!

Steamed fish, it was quite fresh.

BBQed squid

We also had shark's fin soup here and it wasn't nice at all.
The soup had almost no ingredients inside and its very starchy!!

I don't think we will patronise Nam Sing again, i shall source for a better place for seafood the next time i visit Thailand.

Cute little eggs!
This picture was taken at the Memorial Bridge, another very good place for cheap shopping, its like a mini chatuchak.
Some people would find this place rowdy as its filled with young teenage Thais, but i feel ok here, maybe i'm used to such crowds.

Foot massage- 300baht at Chang Massage.

The place is nice and dim, makes me wanna sleep there.
They have another branch at the airport as well.
Oil massage for an hour cost around 450baht which i think is quite cheap.

Back at our hotel.

Staying at the Oriental Hotel was absolutely wonderful.

Service is top notched and we had our own personal butler that attended to our every need.
We were so well taken care of and everytime we board a cab from the hotel, we will be given the hotel's name card with the car plate number of the cab just in case anything happens.

We were ALWAYZ greeted with smiles the minute we step into the hotel, everyone smiles, and i really mean every single staff there you see will smile :)

No wonder its known as the best hotel in Bangkok, now i truly understand why.
and a night's stay costs USD350.
I will definitely stay there again (when i strike lottery).
