2nd BKK trip in 2013!
An all girls trip which we’ve been anticipating for since the start of the year!
Flying with Tiger!
It was a chaotic morning for me
I cabbed down to the airport around 5am
Got to the airport only to realize that I’ve forgotten to bring my antibiotics!
Checked in our baggage, got our boarding passes & then I rocket home to pick my meds & back again just in time!
Pics with the girls at the Sunflower Park in T2’s Departure hall
L to R : Jasmine, TingTing, Jasmine again & Dongs
Independent woman sitting alone hahahaha
Thought she gonna have all 3 seats to herself but apparently flight was fully filled!
Touched down at Suvarnabhumi Airport late morning
Got our data sim cards and cabbed to put our baggage at our hotel
Couldn’t check in yet cuz it was still early.
Left our stuff there and headed to our first stop!
Lunch @ Chatuchak
Super yummy beef beehoon soup
the must-have Thai Coconut Ice cream @ JJ market
Everyone looted something from JJ but I didnt.
This is my so called 忍功before I spam hard at Platinum
Weather was really kind to us since we touched down in BKK
Used to sweat buckets making shopping at JJ super unbearable
But this time round it was still humid but the heat was tolerable.
1st day was all about traffic jams
Finally checked in our hotel after Chatuchak!
Behold! The awesome Siam Swana Hotel
Our hotel resource manager, Lin Dongs high source low source
& settled for this hotel which i think is mad awesome!
Our 2 bedroom suite!
Comes with a massive large lounge area
2 huge ass bedrooms – ROOM 1
2 huge ass bedrooms – ROOM 2
2 private toilets both in separate bedrooms
No tubs only showers.
Total of 3 TVs 2 in separate bedrooms 1 at the lounge area
Comfy huge bed, great service. No lifts in hotel but it wasn’t an issue cos the bellboys were really helpful with our baggage & shopping loots
Location’s really good too!
Walkable distance to Platinum Mall & extremely short walk to the nearest BTS station
Only minor downside is that their Nat Geo Channel is in Thai
HAHAHAHA point not necessary unless u’re a tv freak.
Cldn’t find my usual fried chicken from JJ so tapau and make do with random chicken cutlet
Still yums cos of their chilli
Our room’s located on the 4th floor
A little workout everyday with the stairs.
No lift, No problem.
Touristy pic with the decors in the hotel
Pool felt a little out of place though
Continued our night shopping at Siam Square
& then to source for the highly raved about Som Tam Nua @ Siam for late dinner
We ordered based on those that comes with a chef’s recommendation icon
Fried Chicken 98baht/130baht
We took the 130baht portion
Hot & Spicy Crispy Fish 105baht
Extra Salted Preserved Pork 98baht – Not really as salty as its given name
Northeast style spicy soup with pork bones 105baht
Very spicy til I don’t dare to touch
Overall verdict, SO-SO not fantastic
a bit over raved by bloggers
Took a tuktuk back!
To Asian Thai Massage just beside our hotel!
Foot massage for an hour at 200baht
Soooo shiok after a day of walking/shopping
Awesome foot massage to mark the end of a very long Day 1!

Then it started pouring like M A D
Took umbrellas & headed out to Asian Thai Massage again!

Dongs & I woke up early & we walked to Pratunam for breakie!

For MORE shopping!
Reunited with the girls
Your eco friendly shoppers with recycled bags
Dropped our loots back at the hotel & took a BTS to Terminal 21!
My Pearl lookalike
The first BTS ride of this trip!
Beside this young face Jasmine I look like her mother!!!!!
They have soooooo many pretty looking cakes!
Western Lunch @ Santa Fe
Went into the toilet & got stuck there for a good 15 mins
Nautical themed toilet!
Bought nothing from Terminal 21 cos everything was too pricey
Its just a mall for touristy pics
Saw H&M got really excited
But Bkk’s H&M is pricier than SG’s
Same collection of clothes, so no point
Took the BTS back to Siam
Had pretty cakes & tea @ Mr Jones Orphanage
located in Siam Center level 2
Kit Kat Monster & Red Velvet
Earl grey tea in a pretty pot!
Teatime with Dongs
K, striked off another to do on our list
Mr Jones Orphanage checked!
Back to the hotel for a swim!
More like for a dip la cos the pool is really small
Hiao liao lor
In our robes like a boss
Cuz it was our last night,
we had to pack our stuff
Really didnt know how or where to start
But we eventually did hahahaha
Room service for breakfast on the last day of our trip!
Went to roam about @ MBK for fun
& took a tuk tuk back
Lunch was at Sushi Masa just within our hotel premises
It was a pricey place for lunch
But extremely yums
MAXIMUM WIN FUJI
The unagi sushi MELTS IN UR MOUTH
It is so meaty so juicy so ZOMG its the awesomest unagi i’ve ever had
with no irritating bones that pricks.
80baht per piece. NOTE, PER PIECE.
Super generously sliced Salmon sashimi
So generous its a bit jelat but still, really fresh. 270baht
I WILL GO BACK FOR THEIR UNAGI
like seriously talking about it now makes me salivate.
Good meal to end our trip!
Still a bit bang that I didn’t get to eat mango sticky rice this time
&&&&& I think my loots weren’t fantastic
Can’t wait for the next BKK trip
which I suppose is happening REAAAAALLLY soon!!!
