i booked our bangkok trip early this year, and have been counting the days since i clicked the submit button at airasiago. i still remember i was chatting with 4 of my friends on msn at one window, doing the holiday booking in another window. this is my 1st time booking my own holiday! hahaha! *shake head*
anyway, our flight was 8.20am in the morning, cus i kiasu, i want to reach bkk early in the morning & start my modus operandi without wasting any minute! hehehehe! we left our home around 5.30am and was driven to the airport by our dear neighbour fren (whom is our close fren b4 he became our neighbour) we reached lcct before 6.30am & did our self check-in & also to check in our luggage. i did not pay for additional luggage on our way there, luckily both the bags was weighing nicely on 15kg cus... the green bag was an empty bag! muaahaahaa!
we reached Suvarnabhumi Airport around 10.30am & was greeted by our close fren Jason. we then took the airport rail link to our hotel baiyoke boutique, and guess how much was the train fare? rm1.50 per person! crazy deal rite? hehehe... think it's still new, that's why the fare still rocks! the journey took around 20mins or so, i didn't really keep track of the time cus i was too happy that im in bangkok! once we reached the station we are heading to, it took us around 10mins walk to our hotel, how nice was that! we are definitely coming back to this hotel if we decide to go bangkok again, as it's very convenient. we checked in & told the receptionist that we will be back for the keys as the room was not ready & left our luggage with the concierge.
we then started to walk around the hotel area, baiyoke sky was just in the front, the tallest tower in bangkok. our 1st destination was platinum mall, which was 15mins walk away. i have seen pictures online how it would look like, what to expect and all so i don't get culture shock, but failed cus i was grinning like a silly cat, and my dear hubs already shaking his head. hahahaha! aitellyou! IT WAS SHOPPING HEAVEN OHMIGOSH! i told hubs & jason that please go ahead and have your lunch, i will proceed with my shopping but of cos, i was dragged to lunch! haha!
we have our lunch at the top floor, where the food court is located. food was of cos yummylicious! after our lunch, i zoomed off to check out the shops. hubs & jason was following me but i shoo-ed them off saying that please let me shop in peace! hahaha... then they disappeared & went to have coffee downstairs. i can go on & on & on about the clothes & shopping but i will bore you, so i shall just skip that part, hehehehe... if you love to shop, please go to bangkok! you will be amazed, but then again, pls plan your trip with a group of girls, cus they are wholesalers here, the more you buy, the cheaper you get per piece! average clothing was from rm10 - rm25, from t-shirts, to blouses, to dresses, to jackets, u name it, they have it!
after few hours spent in platinum mall, we walked towards siam square which i really love. there u will find lots of retails outlets & cafes. we had foot massage here, and hubs had his oil massage for 2 days straight here too! it's so darn affordable! rm30 for an hour of footie massage & rm50 for an hour of oil massage. ladies, if u want your hubs to be happy, bring them to massage and continue your shopping after that! confirm no charcoal face, wakakakakaka! after siam square we then proceed to mbk mall. we only head straight to the gadgets floor, searching for all the foncovers. for my blackberry & hubs' iPhone covers, also for other frens. i was speechless when i saw the place, covers everywhere... walaoweeeeeei! crazy... as usual, when it gets crazy, my mind go freeze mode. hahahaaha! sei mou, failed!
after mbk, we walked around back to siam square & then our fren suggested we head to suan lum nite bazaar. again, shopping... don't you guys get tired, u ask? hahaha... indeed we do, our legs are like breaking, our body so heavy, body so sweaty! it was really very HOT in bangkok! piercing sun right thru your skin, hot hot hot!
aaaaaaah... BUT shopping comes 1st! muaaahaaahaa! there is a huge food court in the middle of the nite bazaar, comes with a big stage with free entertainment with singers & dancers, was too hungry to notice, and it was really loud & i don't understand what they singing lah!
after dinner, we then decided to take a tuk tuk back to our hotel which i think, it was quite a mistake! the tuk tuk driver was confirmed high, so hyper it worries me sick! he was driving so fast my 2 bodyguards was holding to the sidebar like clinging to it! hahahaha... me? i was holding my shopping bags tightly of cos! hehe!
we reached hotel near to 12am plus, took the key from the front desk, head to our room, took our bath & feel FLAT on the bed snoring! yeah... i could hear the man snoring... i was asleep minutes after i closed my eyes, imagine how damn tired we were, walking non stop the whole day, this is more tiring than working man! haha!
so that was our 1st day in one of the amazing land in thailand ;)
