Bangkok Girly Trip Part 1

My Bangkok trip this time is all about shopping and food plus good massages too. It was so impromptu that we booked our flight for this 3 months ago. But as the date for our holiday drew closer, Thailand was in chaos with all the protests and Thai coup curfew. My dad was against my wish to go and we almost cancelled the whole trip.

Lucky we didn't because it was absolutely safe there, or at Bangkok at least. The media really know how to blow up their news and make everything 10 times worse than it is. I have been closely following up on the news about Thailand and everyone who went there during the period said it is completely safe.

Anyway, back to my trip. Behold yourself and don't read if you're hungry because it is all food porn. LOL

For this trip we stayed at Hotel Vista Express which located at Soi 19 Pratunam, The hotel was clean and quiet but the location is too secluded. It is located at an alley which only accessible by foot or vehicles coming from the other side because it is a one way street. But it is still okay for us la since taxis are abundant and cheap in Bangkok.

On our first night, we had our dinner at this stall in Chinatown.

It is very popular apparently and located just by the road side. And it has a very long queue. Lucky us got seats after 20 minutes or so.

Tom yam gong. Yummy-ness in a bowl. But it is smaller that I've expected.

A spicy steam fish but I really hate the parsley(is it) on top of it.

Sorry, half eaten food because we were starving. We had crabmeat, squids in salty egg, tofu, morning glory, fried egg and cockles. Basically everything seafood la but the bills was very cheap. Only 100++ Baht for 6 persons.

All of us! Patchy and Maple are Sara's friends and so friendly and nice.

Told ya it was a long queue. 

One more photo of the food from my phone because it was so delicious.

With Sara, the mastermind of this trip. She did all the research about where to eat and which restaurants we must visit.

After dinner we went to Sixcret (?) for drinks. Can't really remember the name of the place because I was beyond sleepy after dinner. I woke up at 6 in the morning that day because of our early flight.

Sara's photography skill lolololo

My skill hahahahha 

Day 2! Ready to eat and shop.

For lunch we head over to Koreatown to try Doorae  since it is highly rated by everyone. 

The pork is sooooo gooodddd!

All ready to dig in

More and more dishes coming in. 

We really over ordered but the bill quite okay leh. 

Can't finish it all
Here's the address if you guys keen:

Address: 12 Thanon Sukhumvit, แขวง คลองเตย เขต คลองเตย กรุงเทพมหานคร 10110, Thailand
Just google translate if you want to know in English but if not, just show this to your taxi driver, they sure know where it is.

Next is dessert time at Mango Tango.

They have this rule where the minimum order must be 3 so we all just share all the 3 desserts. We had mango sticky rice, mango pudding and something mango sago, I can't recall the name. 

True to its fame, our desserts are all delicious. 

After stuffing ourselves, it's time to hit Siam Paragon. Shopping time but I didn't bought much, I even left Forever 21 empty handed. Don't know is it me growing old or my taste has changed, nothing really caught my eyes this time. However I still got some great haul from Bangkok.

During one of my many fitting room session. Got bored because none of the tops fit me well so I took selfie instead.

Massage after shopping. It felt so good to have people massage your feet after walking whole day. 

Did I warned you that this trip was all about food for me?

So, we went to After You after massage for tea break. As always After You was packed and we waited around half an hour for our seats.

We girls being girls. Everyone wiped out their phone when our food came. Hehehhee I love people whom share the same passion with me.

The real reason we're here, Shibuya Honey Toast. It still taste the same and so good. The toast is so soft in the inside and mix it with honey, one word: perfect!

Sorry yu fen, this is our one and only group photo. See people outside the cafe, those were still waiting for their turn. 

That's all for Part 1 of my Bangkok trip now. Will continue soon.
