My breathtaking trip....no great scenery in BKK though but the cheap baju baju and baju over there! I really shop till my wallet dropped!! And I have also fallen in love with Naraya bags - a very famous brand in Thailand'^_^ They are so pretty and CHEAP! From the outlook of the boutique, it gave me the impression of branded, high class with ceiling high price. But I was so wrong. The bags are of great quality with very cheap price. I went bizarre the moment I stepped into the boutique, and went round and round the shelf non stop. I don't fancy this brand actually, as I got 1pc from my cousin sister last year, as a souvenir. But as soon as I saw the price tag on the bag, immediately became Naraya's fan :P
So here's our journey to the land of Sawadeekaa =)
Our flight was at 12.20pm on 9th July 2010. HubB sent us to KLIA, reached there around 10am. After we have checked in our luggage bags, we walked here and there a bit, snap pictures to kill our time.
An hour before our flight, we had a quick pre lunch at Old Town.
The moment we were on board, Smellybutt demanded to have all her favourite coloring books and color pencil on top of the meal tray. And then the teaching began.... @_@ "Chern Pei Wei, color nice nice!!". This is the worst trip I ever had with this lil monster. She used to behave so well for all our overseas trip, except this 1. When the airplane about to take off, as usual cabin crew will asked us to sit up right and the meal tray must be back into its position. Lil monster insisted to have the tray down with all her stuff on top. The more we asked her to keep everything and sit quietly, the louder she screamed and cried +_+ Really paiseh lor, never in history she did that to us in public. After battling with her for almost a minute, she gave in. Duhhh....such a stubborn girl lah.
When the cabin crew announced that food will be served soon, first thing came into my mind was the yummy Haagan Dazs ice cream! I told Smellybutt to take her lunch first before she could enjoy the dessert. She nodded happily. After the main (yucky) meal, waited and waited...only kept serving more juices/water to the passengers. 10min later, I heard the announcement "cabin crew, prepare for landing". WHAT??? Landing already?? Where is my long awaited Haagan Dazs?? GGgrrrrrrr!!!! Smellybutt even asked me "mami, they forgot to give us ice cream ar?" @_@ I said "yeah, don't know why no ice cream today. never mind, we go buy it from the mall later". I said that just to please her only :P Else she will definitely repeat the same question over and over again.
Upon arrival at BKK airport around 2.30pm, we took a public taxi to CN's office. In BKK, the passenger has to pay for the toll fees on the spot. We paid twice for the toll, total about BHT65 whereas the taxi fare was BHT330. It took us 45min only to reach CN's office. I sms to CN and waited her at the office lobby. She came with her driver and we all kept our luggage bags into the car boot. CN has told the driver to send us to the nearby Central Mall, which was just 10min drive away.
We can shop for about 2hr++, to meet up with CN again after she finished her work. Due to the yucky meal we had in flight, we decided to have another light meal at the food court. They are simple yet delicious!! We bought some cheap baju and cute hair clips from the mall, as warm-up :P
Saw these local delicacies at the mall's centre court. The giant sausage looks disgusting +_+
After dinner, CN brought us to the Naraya boutique and that was where we shopped till the shop closed door. Poor Smellybutt as she was bored seated in her stroller for hours and said "mami, I want to go home". So we left the mall and reached home at about 11pm (means 12am in KL!)
this is the 7 star service apartment which we all adore so much! I didn't take much photo of the unit, so Teacher Nel 'lend' me her copyright here =)
10th July (Saturday) morning, we all got up early for a cozy English breakfast buffet at the lobby. Then we headed off to Chatuchak, a hot steaming tourist attraction market. Certainly not to be missed!! Again didn't take much photo there coz too focused on the stuff there :P
Smellybutt started to be cranky just as we arrived there @_@ So CN bought her a small bottle of orange juice to keep her occupied. That was the most delicious orange juice I've ever had. In Thailand, they extracted the juice from the mandarin oranges instead. That made the juice so sweet, and with lots of pulps too. Only Bht20/bottle.
Had this yummy cooling dessert - coconut milk ice cream at Bht30/scoop with bottomless coconut juice!
We spent 4hr shopping in Chatuchak, with lots of sweats and bargain. Half way thru, Smellybutt behtahan and ZzzZzz with the clip on fan on her stroller.
After that, we moved on to Chinatown and shopped for another 3hr there before we met up with another ex-school mate SK, whom coincidentally was there in BKK for work. What a far far away land reunion for me! SK and I hardly meet in KL, and here we are, having dinner together with CN in BKK.
more bajusss from Chatuchak as well
11th July (Sunday) morning , had our pork burger breakfast at McD. Teacher Nel said must try wor!
So we ordered the Samurai burger set at only Baht60/set, all thanks to CN's service provider for the rebate!
Somebody having orange juice again.....
And fries with tomato sauce...non-stop.
Then we went to Platinum Mall, a place where you can get wholesale price for clothes, shoes and accessories. It was a nice place to shop, coz got air-cond mah :P but Chatuchak offers more designer inspired and unique design stuff. We spent almost 5hr++ there, shopped till lots of goodies bags hanged on the stroller :P
Food court at level 6, Platinum Mall offers great variety of (small portion) food! Really really small portion, I tell 'ya. No wonder Thai girls are all slim slim lah....
We had Mos Burger for dinner at Siam Paragon Mall, just 1 station away from Platinum Mall. Again this was recommended by Teacher Nel (but she didn't try it at all!!). No regret with the pork burger, it was indeed sooooo yummy! Once upon a time, Mos Burger was in KL before, but it didn't get much supporter, hence tutup kedai liao.
12th July (Monday) morning, CN didn't accompany us anymore as she gotto work. So 3 of us went to Platinum Mall again for our finale purchase and then to Siam Paragon to purchase some Thai local biscuits. We got back to the service apartment by 2pm, packed our stuff a bit and then called for a public taxi to take us to the airport.
It was a fun filled trip for all of us, though we only shop, nothing but shopping! That was my main purpose :P Glad that I was able to shop and walk for long hours non stop despite to my 5th month of pregnancy =) Good Lil BB!!
Sekelip mata saja, we touched down at KLIA around 8pm....how sad =( We almost left the luggage collection area without the stroller. Hahaha busy counting the bags only... :P Don't know when can I re-visit BKK again after this....
