Jalan-jalan Bangkok

Oooyeah, I am still in Bangkok (emotionally), but in fact, I am back here to Malaysia (sigh). Kick away the emo side - I am bringing you my 3rd day in Bangkok! Frankly, our 3rd day was nothing much special as we had already been to Floating Market, Temples and Calypso Cabaret on our 2nd day.

Therefore, on our 3rd day, we have decided to walk all the way from Chinatown (where we are staying) to Bangkok town. Yes, we placed our trust on our Ipanemas. We were sweaty yet it was hell lotsa fun! ;)

Holding to my stomach as if it's bloating wtf.

Morning market to perk our day.

Tulan-looking uncle. :o

Pink Altis - I like! :D

As we followed our instinct, we bumped into a stall by the road side offering traditional threading services. I stand by her stall for about 15 minutes, when the little voice in my heart said, "Go for it!".

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
To go for it, or not to go???

Looks painful to me, but as I stare at her skillful techniques I went on to try my very first threading! Oh, there goes my very first time...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
First, you clip away your hair and put the ugly hairband on you. Next she will powder (with bedak sejuk) your face damn white, it made you looked like ghost. The powder gives my face a cooling tingling sensation.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And let the painful procedure begins.. :k

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Ouch ouch! It was indeed painful when she pulls away my baby hair.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The whole procedure takes about half an hour. After the first 10 minutes, I felt immune to the pain. :)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Stare at my cute nostrils wtf.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Taadaa!!! The final product of her skill - (too) fair, smooth and hairless face. The fairness was caused by the leftover from the face powder (bedak sejuk) and it made me fugly in this photo. But for the sake of showing the final product (me), sigh, nevermind that I looked like a ghost/make-up malfunction.

We continue with our walkathon journey to Bangkok, and we saw bunches of chinese sausages hanged by the roadside:

Thailand's chinese sausages are so yummy! We had these at hotel's daily breakfast as garnishes for porridge. We fell in love with it's taste! :) Oh my gawd, it's so yummy we bought a kilo to bring back home.

Not forgotten - pork floss. ;) *wink*wink*

As we walked and walked, we have finally reached the nearest subway (Station: Hua Lum Pong). A relieve to my poor legs. Phew... We took the Skytrain to the next interchange station.

We discovered this as we walked to the nect interchange station: Yum saap (read this ala Cantonese slang, and repeat it twice: yum yum saap saap!!! Hahaha... get it get it?). "Yum yum saap saap" means HORNY in Cantonese :D Hahaha... To go yourself horny, you know what to do, right? ;)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Oooo... horny~~~ ;)

We took the BTS subway to Siam Center/Siam Discovery Center/Siam Paragon, (station: Siam) Phatum Wan district - one of the oldest malls in Bangkok, located adjacent to MBK Center.

Look particular familiar to our very own LRT?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Smooth fair skin tralala I like *heart melts* wtf.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We have reached Siam Paragon. Nah, it's nothing special, it reassemble our very own Pavillion KL.

Green concept of shopping mall.

They have McCafe in Bangkok! They serves cappucino, latte, cakes, cornish etc, just like Secret Recipe! :) Why McCafe isn't available in Malaysia?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
One thing I must try in Bangkok - McDonalds! Haha, call me dumb for having McD in foreign country. I'm not ordering the usual McChicken, Filet 'O Fish or Big Mac. Instead, I ordered Pork Burger!!! :)
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We upgraded Coca-Cola with McD Latte.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Taking picture with Pork Burger ala acting very touristy wtf.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Me camwhored while WH went to wash his hands.



Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Oh so yummylicious scrumptious McD Pork Burger! I want this in Malaysia McD!!!

Well, if you are looking for bargain and low prices, then Siam Paragon isn't your cup of tea. Well, it sure ain't our cup of tea. We left after a round of short tour in Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery Center - and we head on to MBK (again)! Yes, we went to MBK twice in 3 days. I'm loving the bargain and everything they offered there.

My shopping haven.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I'm loving the array of colors...

Double storey subway system.

If you have been following my previous Bangkok post, you must have realize that we haven't indulge ourselves in Thai massage. For so many kilometres that we walked, it's time for us to pamper our feet. :) We went to "Relaxation" at 7th Floor of MBK.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Hah, that's my lil feet!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Great ambience and soothing music to calm your soul.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
They are working on it!!!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Oooyeah, we are enjoying the moment.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Right after that, our stomachs are growling and in need of food. We chose to dine at MBK's food court. Clockwise from top: Duck noodle, mango salad and fried macaroni Thai style. My verdict: ALL ARE SO YUMMY!!!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Thumbs up for all of them!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I wanna make you drool~ ;)

YOU CAN'T MISS RIDING TUT-TUT when you are in Thailand! One golden rule: remember to bargain with the tut-tut driver. And because you are a tourist, they charged you more than taxi drivers! But for the fun and experience of a lifetime, you must TRY this for once.

Like us!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Excitedly fast and furious!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We finally able to capture one "proper" picture after the tut-tut stopped at the traffic light.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
They go REAL fast. Hold on to whatever you can!

We reached Chinatown and our walkabout continues. Yes, we are not stopping! It's only 9.45 pm, the night is still young.

P/S: Hooray, I am joyful as my relationship with WH will reach 3rd year anniversary (8 days later)! :k To celebrate our 3rd anniversary, we will be away from Malaysia for 6 days! Where we will be going? A small secret that I will keep for another 8 more days... ;)
