6D5N Bangkok: 3rd - 8th January 2013

3rd Jan - 8th Jan 2013:

Day 1 - Touched down at ~9.30pm BKK time and we headed to the KhaoSan Night Market straight after checking into our hotel:





$1 Pad Thai!:















My favourite banana nutella crepe! Bought 2 that night haha:













We tried out fried insects for the first time, and surprisingly they are tastier than we thought haha:













Day 2 - Went to Platinum Mall for some serious shopping hahah but I ended up buying only about 5 items:

















Headed to Phrom Phong after that because Shane needed to look for a tailor:



















Entertained myself with my Gingerbread Krispy Kreme:



Went back to Siam Paragon for dinner @ Another Hound Cafe! Love the food here:













Red velvet and yummy yummy chocolate waffles!:





And then we had supper near Baiyoke:











Day 3 - Chatuchak day! We ate so much and perspired so much. Bumped into a few friends there too:







































After that it was back to Phrom Phong again. But first, some street food:















Did manicure and pedicure (my virgin experience!!) at this place called Golden Lotus while waiting for Shane to do his body massage:







After that we met up with Jo and Zaidie at the newly opened Asiatique Night Market, which is accessible via the shuttle ferry:



Had some Thai cuisine at Rocking Doll:

















Hugeass fan messed up my fringe:





Day 4 - Headed to Union Mall for more shopping! It was also the day I spent my last baht and was left with none for Day 5 and 6 hahahaha:



























Green tea soya bean!:



Back to Siam for dinner at KFC + S&P. KFC's green curry chicken rice is sooooo good we had it for 2 consecutive days haha they've strawberry egg tarts too!:















Met up with Jo and Zaidie again for some drinks + supper at Khaosan. Can't resist all the cheap street food (think S$1 padthai/mango sticky rice). Oh and I took the tuktuk for the first time hehehe but it's actually a waste of money. Cabbing is so much cheaper:









They shared a tarantula hahah omg:



Day 5 - Had to collect Shane's suit so we shopped at Terminal 21 while waiting for it to be done:





























Discovered this awesome padthai opposite our hotel while hunting for supper, wanted to buy this again the next day before our flight but the stall was gone :(



Day 6 - Our last day in BKK, but our flight's at 8.30pm BKK time so we had time to have lunch/desserts at Siam Paragon before heading to the Madame Tussauds wax museum:

























And then it was goodbye, Bangkok :'(

So that's most of the visuals for the 6 days I've spent in BKK! Now it's back to reality, back to school :(

    And did you really lift the weights? :)

    1. Hahaha they aren't real! Just some rubbery toys but they looked horribly realistic :O

      Yes I did, but the weights are made of foam (I think) hahahaha so they are actually damn light! :P

    1. Hi, thank you! :)
      I stayed in Residence Rajtaevee, it's nothing like a resort hahaha the exterior's pretty old and rundown, but the rooms are very decent :)
      I get most of my bandeaus from F21, if not, any random accessory shop. The one I wore in this post is from Chatuchak! I really like colourful things hehe most of my stuff are :)

    1. Hello! I don't really have a specific abs-toning regime, but it's a combination of running + swimming + skipping + dance trainings + crunches + bridges/planks! I work on my body as a whole and I think my abs just get toned along the way hahaha.

    2. i was told not to only focus on the abdomen area too. Like you just have to work on the whole body and it'll come 'naturally'! Thanks babe
