Only 4D3N this time , as jetstar have change their flight schedule.
Nevertheless, its was still quite enjoyable and fun, especially with Aunty around
She is soo fun-loving and great to travel with!!
This time we stay at Baiyoke Boutique Hotel, our 1st and also the last.
Exterior is superb, but interior SUCKS!
we were given a room with a spoilt basin tap, spoilt tv and a nearly spoilt water heater.
Irene's room was dirty, carpet was black and damp, they couldnt walk barefooted.
Worse, 1st thing they did was to scrub and wash the bathroom... KNS
(p/s: see more complaints in Irene's blog)
Not to mentioned, the hotel was really noisy night and day.
The two roosters at the next bldg started crowing at 6am sharp every morning till i dunno what time?!
Then when night falls, there is a weird loud noise of a moving train persistently, not sure why but there isnt any railway track downstairs... WEIRD!
Our 1st stop in bangkok
(My parents werent so lucky last year, the four side of the buddha was covered up then.)
Our "must go" restaurant
The best and cheapest Jap food you can find. So we always stuff ourselves silly
This is my 2nd vist to Banya, serves authentic thai food.
Brought Irene and her mom there this time, and gosh she is so addicted now.
Let me tell you how GOOD the food is
3 gals (all on diet)+ 1 guy finished 8 dishes + 1 desert + 2 Big portion of rice
:) we walk out happy, full and contented!!
Our "MUST DO" activity
Other than shopping, Mani/Pedicure is always our must do in bangkok.
Why?? cuz it cheap and they did really neat nail work...
Irene did nail potrait of her two darlings. it was drawn based on the pic stored on her hp.
simply loved the doggy stuffs from thailand! see doggy bed, so much nicer!
chanced upon this pair of street performers, a old man and his aged dog.
This dog is bi-lingual, whatever the owner said to him in Thai,
he will choose the cards (placed in front of him) written in english and hand back to e old man.
This act have attracted a large crowd, amused and astonished.
Best of all, towards the end of the performance, the dog will automatically walk towards the crowd
askings for hugs and kisses and the donation will start flowing in
To make the act more convincing
the old man have asked the audience to write a set of new cards in english.
this time , new cards and new wordings, the dog is ask to perform the same task.
100% accurate! We are all impressed!!
Post complete with my 1st tattoo experience.
