GX BKK INVASION (2nd-5th Oct)
Here's the super outdated post on my BKK Trip, like finally. I was busy with my birthday celebration, theboy's & my lover's convocation. It all ended yesterday. Okay, lets get straight to the point now. It's been 4 years since I last touched BKK, it feels like 6 to 7 years though. Still the same.. I don't like Bangkok.. to everyone it's the LAND OF SMILE for me it's LAND OF CHEATERS. Okay, I seriously wasn't sure if I'm plain suay or what, all my trips, taxi drivers or even the people there were trying to con my monies! Some cab driver even pray to dead centipede or cockroaches in their cab. Nevertheless, I guess the most awesome part about this trip is about W BANGKOK hotel!
DAY 1 - SIN - DMK - W BANGKOK HOTEL
Let's SCOOT away with my BFF!
Arrived at Don Mueang Airport (DMK) after 2 hours plus flight. I must say.. the timing for Scoot is lousy, it was a evening flight. Anyway, first thing to do after touched down, is to buy their local prepaid card and get data plan so that my Instagram can be up to date haha. Hop on a cab and arrived at W BANGKOK HOTEL. I fall in love with it at the first sight. They were having this "BOXING GLOVE" theme. Let me bring you on a Lobby tour.
After check-in it's time now for the room. We were given the choice to choose either to have 1 King size bedroom or 2 beds bedroom. Thankfully, We chose the 2 beds because it is TWO QUEEN SIZE BED! We were located on Level 30, Room 3008. This hotel is "very clean". My last BKK accommodation was Baiyoke Boutique Hotel, it's "dirty". I guess you guys should know what I meant. At W Bangkok, I felt so safe, I can bathe & stay in the room alone without BFF, of course with my worship/praise songs on.
BFF & I was snapping away, our mobile, my NX Mini or even her GO Pro was activated.
The coolest thing I found was a tablet-looking controller which controls the air-conditioning, Alarm & even the lightings of the whole room. Are you guilty for asking your partners/friends to off the lights when you're lazy or scared and they have to walk to the switches, alone? I am. So this tablet is what I need, hahaha! Here I was trying to figure out this device and BFF snap away using my camera.
After ransacking our room, we went out to recky what's near us & the BTS (their Train System) and we ended the night kind of early as we were both tired. Getting ready for shopping!
Day 2 - Hello Kitty House - Terminal 21 - Siam Square - Rot Fai Market (Train Market)
Before we head out, I took a selfie, we re-take the photo with "W", right at the hotel entrance & we took BTS for the first time today.
Had our late breakfast at Hello Kitty House. I walked passed a nice cafe which is not yet open for business, along the same stretch of road with Kitty house which makes me stopped & snap a picture, it's called "After you" I'll visit you the next round. (:
Here I was at a placed filled with my favorite Hello Kitty! They don't have much choices for main course, so if you're really hungry, please have something, somewhere else first before hitting the cafe.
Nevertheless, the food is cheap & yummy!
The whole meal cost 680 Baht = SGD 27 (incl. GST). Moving on, we did a short shopping at Terminal 21 which is quite near to Siam & coincidentally spotted The Stickhouse. A few months ago, I saw my darling Anabel posted on her instagram and I told myself I will have to try it. I not a fan of ice-cream and this isn't ice-cream, more like ice-juice, no cream taste! hahhaha! It's as if or made up with pure fruit juice because it tasted like it! This is a MUST-TRY. We chosen Watermelon with Kiwi, mixture of sweet & sour. It probably cost just 100-200 Baht, I forgotten. Choose the topping you want & lick away~
Terminal 21 has nothing much to shop, the price for the clothings is expensive, as good as buying in Singapore. But the SNAIL WHITE cream is cheaper there, its 850 Baht = SGD 33.70 and on their official website (Singapore) is selling SGD 58. I got one to try, the result was so far so good. We headed back to Siam for more shopping & dinner. Gotten my Adidas tights for my dance class (V.A.T refund available). In Bangkok, we all should eat Fuji Restaurant, the famous Japanese restaurant, we had it at Siam Paragon outlet. The food is heavenly.. Fresh Sashimi, Yummy Garlic Rice, Juicy Beef and many more.. The beef tasted the same as what I had in Taiwan.
It's time for ROT FAI MARKET (Train Market), SHOPPING TIME! My last visit wasn't pleasant because most of the clothes in BKK were too big for me. But this time round, I was really surprise that beside boutique, I can shop at Nightmarket. Some of them actually have sizes to choose from now. I shop so much and was to tired to party so BFF went ahead with her cousins. Here's my Day 2 Loot. The mixture of brand & brandless.
Day 3 - THE LAST SHOPPING DAY!
JJ Market - ONSEN - DEMO
Look who's always the slow one!
I remember during my last trip, I only gotten one cardigan from Chatuchak Market which is also known as JJ Market. This time round, I bought so much, so much that my hands couldn't carry anymore. Thankfully, I have my BFF to help me handle some bags. I look as if I'm there to get stock for my blogshop. Bumped into many Singaporeans whom shop for their Blogshop there with big, pasar malam bags. Some design carries different sizes too.
Before the shopping starts, I found something new which I've added to my food list. I don't know the name but I know I love it. It was so yummy that I couldn't stop eating, there was so much good food there and I was prepared to bomb the toilet. The uncle was the hero behind my favorite food now. LOL!
Here's somemore food.. couldn't resist the tempting quirl eggs, so we had it. As for the 2nd and 3rd picture, the food is awful. It's a Muslim stall in the middle of the Market, BFF still ask if they can add more PORK! hahahah! We were tempted by the icy Pepsi in the fridge and the table & chairs after much shopping and so we settled in, but it was into our horror! Don't eat.. I mean it!
After shopping for 4 hours plus in JJ Market, we went back to the hotel to rest for awhile and look what we found! W Bangkok change their carpet from Good Morning - Good Afternoon - Good Evening. They were simply so heart-warming lah.
Here's the Day 3 loot!
After some rest, we went to meet Kenny who asked us to join them for ONSEN. Without knowing what exactly it was, we went and it was boring. It's hot spring.. we thought we could get to massage ):
Wrong move but it's an experience. So they actually have pool temperature ranging from 41 - 50 plus degree and a cold pool at 9 degree. Very much win, we so wanna kill Kenny! No photos can be taken in the changing room & pool as everyone's naked. 450 Baht = SGD 17.90 for unlimited "soaking". Love my kimono though~
After ONSEN, we went for dinner just next door. We were famished after the soaking. Yes we had Japanese food again for dinner. The food really wasn't that amazing, really. After dinner we went back to hotel to get changed for the party. We were stucked in massive human jam as the Thai were celebrating Deepavali 3 weeks before us. They choked up the whole road along my hotel & we ended up smelling like Curry & Pepper because of the ceremony and the havoc from squeezing through those people. Horrible experience. We head out to party at Demo. All BKK clubs close at 2a.m now, so if you're going, don't think that it is going to open till dawn.
LAST DAY - MBK - BIG C SUPERMARKET - DMK.
Withdrawal syndrome because it's the last day already. Holiday just seems to pass so fast ):
Took the last opportunity to look for "Dogshit" in MBK because theboy love it. Got some tidbits for office & a new, pretty luggage and had a simple meal. Cab down to Big C Supermarket, the biggest hypermarket in BKK which beat Carrefour. Gotten some daily necessities there, its very cheap.
Here's the meal I had in MBK. The Tom Yam Soup is good but the giant prawn & coconut drink is tasteless.
This is such a long post. Thank you for bearing with me. In closing, I still don't really like going to Thailand. My top list is still Taiwan. It is equally cheap and maybe just a few dollars difference. But the quality you get is a huge difference. I prefer going to places where there isn't any communication barrier although my chinese is bad. hahaha. I hope you like my sharing on 4D3N trip to BKK and trust me, choose W Bangkok Hotel, you will not be disappointed.
