Day 3

The day we woke up from our dream… End of holiday… >.<

We woke up early and packed.. First thing to do, breakfast~ We decided to have McDonalds after “negotiating”… Morning, they only serve breakfast… So no Samurai Burger…

Check out the item on the light-box, the one which looks like apple pie. It’s ham and egg!! We decided to order it..

Total damage, 277bhat. Equals to RM27.70 for only breakfast…

Me with my swollen eyes and face in the morning…

He and his sunshine smile for breakfast…

Our breakfast~~~

We went back to the hotel after breakfast, coz we need to check out at 12noon.. We decided to walk around the building before going off.. Finally back to the hotel room to pick up our luggage…

Complimentary water from the hotel.. Shaped like the hotel too…

Checking out time.. Told ya there are quite some handsome hunks in Baiyoke Sky.. This is only the receptionist, there were also the bell boy, room service guy and some other tourist from other country were not bad too.. =) happy smile~

We threw our luggage to the hotel’s luggage care center after checking out… and we took a cab to Siam Paragon again~ Coz we planned to watch a movie there~~~

Amazed with the super grand cinema…* jaw dropped*

Box Office neh~

We queued and bought our ticket… And guess how much is our tickets???

Its whopping 210bhat each!!! Meaning its, RM21 per ticket!! And its only normal seating… Premium/VIP seating is RM50 if not mistaken.. *jaw dropped x 2*

The Safe House~

Movie start in 3 hours time.. So we went and explore the mall… =)

We came, We saw, We duck~

Food hunting… Actually we’re too bloated from the breakfast, but we had this crepe… and the Thai looking style cocktails~ or maybe its not even Thai… Just hotdog… I’m not that sure tho…

Food picture alert…

cute cakes~

not sure what is this…

the cocktails we ate.. somekind of small hotdogs and meatballs… with some weird sauce..

somekind of apong?? with sweetcorn, onion, and other weird weird thing…

(I know I FAILED, I totally forgot what it’s name)

and finally, this is Thai Crispy Pancake.. We should have tried this, but we were too full.. >.<

Then we walked to Siam Centre for more…

Chun went in to this shop… and bought a local designer’s shirt, anr… pretty cool tho… Creative fitting room doors…

Back to the cinema… Checking around…

me and the roses~

The cinema hall.. Pretty normal just like those we have in Msia and Spore.. But the armchair were kinda huge.. with springy effect, good for more comfort but not good for Msia because in Msia, people behind always like to put their foot/shake legs on the front chair…

After the trailers and advertisements, and before the movie… We were to stand up and sing their national song when the screen is showing it.. Wow.. very patriotic…

It was a pretty exciting experience, when the movie finished.. We were rushing back to the hotel as we’ve already booked the taxi for our transfer to the airport. Late and its jammed, because its 6pm… We were 15mins late and the cab driver were rushing and calling us… ;p

He sent us to the airport and rushed to somewhere else as he had to pick up other customer..

@ the airport…

Checking in…

Looking for dinner…

Ok finally he decided to dine here… The menu drawing looks like him… With the spec…

Hungry for Thai food~ I had pad thai and he had… not sure what is that, its maybe paprika chicken?? and the white soup, its tom yam thick soup… well.. It could be the best I’ve had in the airport~ *thumbs up*

Finally… We’re leaving…

The Gate…

On the plane…

Adios amigos~

We’ll come back next time for more massage massage~ =p

It was a splendid trip, with good food, dirt cheap massage and superb hotel… Just cut down on shopping.. Can’t do all… Low budget…

Day 2

We planned to have breakfast @ Siam Paragon~ We missed the shuttle to the mall.. So we took the cab.. Remember, its only 50bhat to go to Siam Paragon area by cab… They would ask for 100bhat if you don’t nego..

Walked around Siam P to look for something nice to eat.. I wanted Starbucks but Chun’s always “NO” for my suggestion.. So “potong stim”.. But he always ask me what to eat… =.=

We walked the whole floor…

And finally back to our 2nd choice… au bon pain.. what does it mean anyway?? pain in the @ss? I’m just kidding.. hehehe… ;p

Check out the salad~ So totally in love with this cafe… Love the club, love the bread, love the dressing, love the soup… omg.. so in love~

Picked Chicken Caesar Salad with low fat Italian Dressing~Yummylicious~

Our simple breakfast`~

Salad, sandwich, soup in bread, tea.. Simple~

So totally worth it… Did not regret eating this for breakfast although it’s only bread..

Happy faces~!! after easing the tummy~

We went for a tea break, uh I meant coffee break @ Starbucks after we walked around the whole building…

Green tea latte here were so sweet… Although I did ordered “less sweet”…

We continued our tour @ Paragon side.. Walked to Siam Center.. Shopping… This time we shop in malls, rather than those wholesale… Bought dresses and tank top from Quicksilver on sale~

And Chun bought a local designer shirt.. Very creative..

Saw my Valentine’s date~

he and a guy.. don’t know him…

Wanted to visit Madame Tussauds, BKK before we’re here.. but I only saw a few wax doll so I decided we should go elsewhere.. Its pretty expensive entrance fees..

Then, we walked to MBK and bought some souvenirs and food~

Since it’s still early… We decided to stick to our plan, to JJ market~ around the noon, we flagged a tuktuk and it took us around 30-45 mins to Chatuchak Market.. Pretty far away via tuktuk…

Grabbing hard!!!

Should have taken the cab instead.. It’s so terribly dusty and hot…

Masked!

We finally reached.. After transporting in a small motor… Backache..

We walked from the back to the front, and then flagged a cab and go back… Couldn’t do much shopping because I’m bringing a big baby along with me… And also the hot whether really pissed me off… I bought some souvenirs and that’s all… We’re there just to walk from the back to the front, and had some drinks…

Shopping in Chatuchak – DONE. with regrets…

We went back to Pratunam area, and then to Platinum Mall~ the greatest… ….

To have some bird nest (the one with the blood) and also KFC!! @ the Platinum Mall food court… We had some tea before our dinner coz we had nothing for lunch… The KFC was pretty nice~ and the chicken was fresh and juicy~

We walked around till it’s time for our dinner reservation @ the tallest building in Thailand…

Level 77 Baiyoke Sky buffet dinner…

Check out the night scenery from our table…

Romantic night…

We grabbed our food.. and I probably took too much fried stuffs, they made me wanna puke…

Sushi, tom yam goong, and fried stuffs..

miso soup, corn soup.. having all the soup~

These seafood are always Chun’s fave… I really don’t understand why… ~.~

check out the big prawns… they irked me…

Check out my photoshop skill for the food photography… hehehe…

Pic 1: Now you don’t see it..

Pic 2: Now you do~~

I stole the prawn from Chun’s seafood plate… LOL~

We went for a walk after dinner… We bought some souvenirs and stuffs… some stuffs which are not really exciting… In the end of the day… Here’s our harvest for 2 days… So very the little tho… >.<

Actually I could rate this trip was a failure… But with the amount of good food we ate, and minus the shopping.. I’ll rate it 80% excited..

Night view from our room… In love with the hotel…

To great food and nice hotel~ *Cheers*

Dinner time!

@ Once Upon A Time…

We started to walk to this restaurant, which I saw from Joanne’s album and them bugged her to tell me about it.. I’ve even printed a map and used my iPhone map for direction.. Chun was shooting his bazooka nagging about how dangerous those dark alley are… Coz from the hotel, we had to pass by the morning market.. but during night, all the shops and stalls were already closed… That’s why its dark…

But in the end, I manage to read the map and followed my instinct.. Walla~ We’re there~

Totally worth the efforts…

We were brought to the indoor seating area because we did not make a reservation to dine in.. But it’s better because we don’t have to feed the mosquitoes..  >p

Check out the interiors~

Then, I went outside to take some pics.. here’s one of it.. I’m lazy to upload others… hehe…

Our order came… I meant the food we ordered came…

I super love the Thai iced tea~

This is me me me me me me~

Tom yamgoong~ and crab meat salad I think.. forgotten the name of the 2nd dish…

Pineapple fried rice in pineapple~

Radish omelet~

Then this thing came when we finished our meal and asked for bill.. Haha… We was amused.. How cute this thing is, and wondering what it could be.. But of course it’s the bill since we asked for it..

After dinner.. We went for a walk before our next massage session…

We decided we should visit the tallest building during the night so we can see all the lights…

from the up up above~

The reminiscence area.. Where they have all this old old thing…

We checked out this machine to kill time.. and to rest our tummy…

Tah daaaaa~~~~

Then we went up the rooftop~Its the revolving roof deck~

the roof deck~

Cool lights~

View from the deck.. So bright the lights~

Then, we took the side elevator down to ground floor~

The 2nd session of massage~ Full Thai body massage for 2 hours.. This costs us 450 bhat..

Here’s the divided area.. Personal space..

Get changed…

while massaging~

Fell asleep during the massage… Really sleepy.. By the time we’re back to the hotel, its around 11pm.. But super tired…
