Revisit Bangkok Part 1. 10th & 11th November 2007.

My trip this time was not as fun or exciting as the previous one, probably due to my travel companions or because of the long travelling hour to Pattaya. But anyway, enjoy the pictures.

This time, I went there with Stanley and two friends from Ipoh. Supposingly, there’s 6 of us. We booked our ticket during the AirAsia free ticket promotion in April. Sensei and her husband got the free ticket but the four of us only managed to get the RM39.99 deal. But then sensei realised she’s pregnant and it’ll be around 8-9 months old by December, so she and her husband decided to give the trip a miss. That left the four of us. Both friends from Ipoh boarded the flight earlier than the two of us.

Chinatown at night.

Our flight delayed for about 25 minutes but it’s ok. As our flight was at 2.05pm (due to the delay), by the time we reach Suvarnabhumi International Airport, it’s already 3pm++ Bangkok time. We drop our luggages at hotel (Silom Residence @ Trinity) and took a nap before dinner. We regroup and after some discussion… off we go to Chinatown!

My boss told me that she had a good experience eating at one of the roadside stall here and we guess this is the place she referring to.

The place is really crowded with customers and I can hear some of them speaking in Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai and English.

This should be the original shop.

There’s another stall opposite it which attracts plenty of customers as well.

We waited for about 15 minutes to get a small table and we had Seafood Tom Yam which is a tad too mild but came piping hot and loaded with squids, fish fillets, button mushrooms and prawns.

Kai Lan with mushroom and crabmeat. The veggie is a bit too hard to chew and as you can see, not much leaves.

Best dish for the night. Oyster Omelette with plenty of big, fresh and juicy oysters (about twice the size we get here) and fluffy egg, minus the flour! No flour detected in this dish, just egg and oysters. Win any of our local stalls hands down.

The guys also polished two grilled crabs which I think is just ok. They also had the coconut juice and they love them. We went to Patpong for some shopping and also along the Silom Road after that.

Next morning was Sunday, so it’s shopping time!

Simple breakfast at hotel. Pork and chicken frankfurters (plain), some pancakes which is fluffy but plain also, fried rice with peanuts and green curry fried vermicelli. Downed them all with a glass of orange juice.

We took the skytrain to the last station of Mo Chit and giggle constantly over the commercials showing in the train. When we’re down from train, I saw this line of colourful taxis outside Chatuchak Park.

I like these pictures and the shop too! It’s so colourful, I just can’t stop myself from taking pictures. Vincent bought two packs of the rubbery balls, mixed colours and red for Chinese New Year. Just poke them with the light bulbs at the hole provided and it’s ready to be hanged.

This one was moving around constantly. I only managed to capture one good shot.

Very cute and the fur is so soft. So nice to touch and pat.

Big pile of finger food. Fries, fritters, mini bread with stuffings etc.

Fried quail eggs. The aunty selling these cracked the quail eggs with ease onto a big wok with small indents. Didn’t try them though as I know they’re laden with bad fatty acids.

Ice blended juice. Pick any cup you want, pass to the girl and she’ll blend them into smoothies. Well, not really smooth as I can bite some apple chunks and ice cubes but it’s good especially during a hot afternoon.

We left Chatuchak around 3.30pm and went back to hotel. Tried to go to MBK Centre after dinner but realized the shopping malls there closes at 9pm, so basically just went there and grabbed a CDΒ for a friend and back to Silom for more “look see look see”.

That concludes my day 1 and day 2.
