"Sawatdee Kaa"

Finally after 12345 days, i have finished editing the colours and resizing the bkk pictures!!! Think we used the wrong mode for the dslr, most of the pics were like dull and very pixelated cuz we set to high ISO. =.= And it wasn't very obvious when we looked through the pictures from the cam itself until i uploaded all into the computer.. :( But anyhowz, here comes the bkk post!! Beware though, lots of pictures coming your way! ;)


Day 1:

We stayed in I Residence Sathorn for the 3 nights. I normally booked my hotels through booking.com. Even the hotels i stayed when i was in the States are booked through this website ;)

It's a 3 stars hotel located very near to Silom, which is where Patpong is. Only 2700baht for 3 nights, around SGD$39/night! Cheap right!! tsktsk! :p But most importantly, there is FREE WI-FI provided!!!! Best!! That's how i managed to tweet every night! ;) hahahah.

This is the hotel's tuktuk. They provide free shuttle service to the BTS station almost every hour! Convenient right! :)

We couldn't check in yet since check in time was around 1pm, and we reached the hotel at... 9am?? Wanted to rest and pig a while but can't :(

IMG_8705
Sat tuktuk out again to PatPong!

8
Dinner!!! I wouldn't say its not nice, but its quite home-cooked. So like, super healthy. Tom Yum soup didnt have the Tom Yum soup feeling, think its cuz of the lack of spices and herbs :(

Not much shopping was done at Patpong too. It was surprisingly, quite quiet. Didn't manage to watch any of the trannies or pingpong show too. Everytime i promised myself to watch it when im there, it'd fail. lol. The people are really WAY too aggressive in promoting their pingpong show which is a major turn off. Sigh sad. never get to watch again :(
Then it rained... HEAVILY. We were tired. All we wanted was sleep and massage. lol. So we head back to the hotel and had a friggin SHIOKKKKKKKKK 1hr foot massage and i fell asleep. I never once fell asleep when im doing a massage ok. Like, i don't understand how can some people sleep when people are there squeezing and pressing your leg/feet. But i guess i was really way too tired, just dozed off. lol.

IMG_8717

I love love love the bag and the high waist pants!!!

IMG_8722IMG_8725
B says i look like some thai girl... =.= lol. Anw, i think this sort of wire hairband that allows you to twist and turn is kinda 'in' now in bkk! Actually, i saw a few local online shops' model wearing it as an accessory already. Bought a few back... Stef i got one for you too!!!! :)

Dinner!
23
Green curry wasn't fantastic! But the thai-style omelette was great, so was the tom yum!!!! YUMZ!

IMG_8966

IMG_8967
Did massage too! Just maybe 20steps beside our hotel! Aiyayayayayaaaa!!! I prefer the foot massage we did on Day 1. Shiok max!!! Thai style full body massage, as always, is quite torturing. U know.. its quite pain, and all the stretching. I am not even flexible to start with :(

IMG_8969
DAY 3 BUYS! :D

Surprisingly, i didn't buy alot. ;(

24
Bought this cute box to store all my hairbands, bangles and other accessories :)

Day 4:

IMG_8994

IMG_8998IMG_9008
ZEN.

Restaurant had a super duper weird smell. Quite a turn off, esp since its considered as one of the more atas restaurant here in BKK.

25
Salmon was ok, but the beef was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And with unbelievable prices! hahaha!


And it was time to head to the airport.................

IMG_9010

In the plane...

hahaha i will load all the pictures into fb soon soon!!! More pics will be there ;)

Well................................ BKK this time round was abit disappointing. Not many clothes caught my eyes which was quite sad. Normally i'll go "Wow Whoo WOw i want this i want that Wow whoo!!!". This time round was just... "ok.... k la... errrrrrrr...." lol. sort of buy for the sake of buying cuz if don't buy, like very dui bu qi to myself. haa~ Prices were higher too. Maybe its due to the protest, they didnt have any business. So since now business has resumed and tourists are back, prices are jerked up to make up for the loss. That's what i think but maybe its wrong. But even in places like Platinum, the wholesale price also not say its very cheap-cheap!

Anw, now i am jobless. In a dilemma on what to work. Rejected the yogurt offer cuz when i think of all the mopping, cleaning and sweeping, i think im not cut out for that. So it's down to being a tuition teacher or retail sales. But i can only start tuition on the 1st. So meanwhile, what should i do????!!!!!

ARGGGHHHH!!!!

  5. Is I Residence Sathorn the same as I Residence Silom? If not the same, would you recommend I Residence Silom? Why did you choose Sathorn instead? Juz want to hear your opinions... hope you won't mind it (:

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hey there,

    Nope they are totally different just bearing almost the same name. Well actually, they are very close to each other, prob a 8mins drive apart only.

    What makes I Residence Silom good is becuz it just beside the BTS station, which is really really convenient. And there's a night mkt nearby if im not wrong..

    I chose I Residence Sathorn cuz 1) ratings is higher than silom (8.2 VS 8.0) 2) MUCH cheaper 3) Free Wi-Fi, silom uses wired internet meaning we cant use iphone to surf the internet.. yea and sathorn provides the free shuttle service so it wasnt much of an inconvenience. Perhaps the only thing is gg back to the hotel since shuttle service did not provide any trips back to the hotel.

    U may want to try Silom though ;) and tell me abt ur experience! :) Hope that helps.

  7. Hi!Love reading your blog posts! :) Just wana ask u which place did u and your bf go to find those fred perry polo tee in bangkok? cos i can't seem to find them the last time i went there :x Thanks in advance! :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey babe!!

    Thanks so much! That really made my day :)

    Btw, we got it at Patpong!! U can find alot of stalls selling over there.. the stalls i usually frequent is just right outside of patpong. Otherwise, there is 1 stall at Khao San road too! :) But there's only 1 so gotta open ur eyes big and try to spot, near the entrance! ;)

  9. hey babe i've nv gone to BKK on my own before and i'd be very happy if you could tell me where are the good places to shop in BKK? and how much does the airfare cost? (:
    thanks.(:

  10. Hey there!

    Well actually i list all the places i went on my post alr, but if u're girl, shopping would be good at Platinum, Siam Square and Chatuchak (go to the clothing session). U may want to check out Patpong for those fake fred perry etc hahaha or like pingpong/sex shows they are pretty cool haha!Khao San road is known as the backpackers street, lots of ang mohs, quite happening over there too. Airfare if flying by budget, should cost u less than $200 (if u book early) :) Mine was around $250 cuz i booked late + i included the tiger insurance thingy ;) I heard flights to bkk now are rather cheap after all the fighting and whatnot but its safe now to go bkk :)

    hope that helps!
