After spending almost the whole afternoon at Chatuchak yesterday, we decided to visit the grand palace and some temples today. In Siamese language, they’re known as “Wat”. We met up with Kevin at the same place after breakfast (minus Ujin again) and took a taxi there.
We left the Grand Palace and walked to the Reclining Buddha Temple which is located behind the palace and it took us about 20 minutes to reach there.
Reclining Buddha’s head view. The statue is very long, much longer and larger than Penang’s and there are several arches blocking the full view of the statue. So, you can only snap the pic of its head or from the foot area. Nothing much to see here so we headed back to hotel. George and Ujin wanna go for massage while Kevin need some foot reflexology… and I’m not into both, so they left me alone in the hotel! I thought of going downstairs to the lobby for some internet surfing but too bad the computers are out of service. And I’m starting to get hungry as well. So I decided to go to McD which is not far away.
Luckily the counter staff can speak some simple English!
I decided to try their new McRice Burger. They use two pan fried patties made from compressed rice to substitute the buns. Inside, it a generous amount of purple cabbage and iceberg cabbage and a piece of deep fried chicken patty. The burger is nice but the patty is a bit too thin for me. Can’t really taste the chicken meat.
They also have 4 different types of McFlurry here: original Oreo, chocky Oreo, berry Oreo and I forgot the last one! I wish I can try them but I’m very full that time.
I didn’t bring the camera when we went for dinner that night. We dine at the roadside in front of BUA Restaurant and Starbucks, and had one bowl of pork meat kuey teow (darn spicy and nice), 2 bowls of Siamese ‘wan tan mee’ with “char siew”, 1 dry, 1 soup. They do not use dark soy sauce for dry mee but it’s still nice. Regret cos didn’t bring camera along. We ended up at Patpong street again later, and needless to say what we do to entertain ourselves that night lol ^^
