Bangkok 3 (last)

April 14th, 2014 by tziaaa

Bangkok day 3, part 2 (last).
After Chatuchak, we proceed to Amphawa Floating Market.
(It’s bangkok 2nd most popular floating market, and the more “authentic” floating market and the more preferable one for the locals)

How to get there:
Take the Sky Train (BTS) to Victoria Monument Station, and then take a passenger van from Victory Monument ask for Samut Songkram or Amphawa. (There’s also bus that could reach amphawa directly, we took a bus back later on.)

Amphawa Floating Market is an evening floating market operated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm to around 9pm.

We were all hungry, and basically starving when we reached, we decided to have a bowl of boat noodles which also known as the Guay teow rhua before we continue the journey. ( ˘▽˘)っ♨

The specialty of it is that the portion is really small, that some can finish up 4-5 bowls in one time.

colorful cotton candy spotted along the way. ♡

The market itself has more than 300 boats jutting out of the Mae Khlong river.

We are actually saving our stomach for the main draw of Amphawa Floating Market, which is the grilled seafood prepared on the wooden boats moored around the central bridge.

& we were all excited when we found it! O(≧∇≦)O

Visitors flocks to each side of the rive, sit on benches and enjoyed the freshly prepared seafood. How irresistable!

Anyhow, we decided to go for a boat trip first.

While waiting in the boat, these is the sight we have beside us, it’s totally chaotic. & it’s really impressive to see how they fit so many stuff into such small space, & yet able to cook and move flexibly from boat to boat. We were totally amazed.

First, let us take a selfie!
I was literally laughing out of joy in this photo, and later notice it isnt too nice, haha! (¬‿¬)

Waited for 20mins to have the boat filled before we start moving!

Daddy & Mummy.( ˘ ³˘)❤

The boat trips took us to visit a few temples around.
Nothing fancy, but time well spent with the family, camwhoring and joking around.

Got back to the floating market in the late evening.

Time to hunt for seafood! (۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ )۶ʸᵉᵃʰᵎ

We didnt want to dine on the real tiny table, instead we got a seat on the balcony of the restaurant next to the river with proper tables and chairs. We get to witness how the food is being cook and brought directly from the boat.

scallops!

super fresh squid.

grilled fish.
despite the burned outlook, the sweetness of it’s flesh is irresistible.

grilled river prawns.
dip them in the garlicky sauce, & enjoy the instant goodness. (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Many thought that i only have a younger sister.
& now I shall introduce you, my brother, haha. (☞゚∀゚)☞

the super cheeky lil sister, with my parents.

Our dinner was satisfying. After filling up our stomach, we girls, decided to explore the floating market further. Passed by this thai sweet stall, and was so attracted by it’s beautiful packaging; then, we bought few packets of it.

Loving how the lights added extra charm, beautifying the whole atmosphere of the floating market.
I had always love lights, the city lights; & now i have a new found love, which is the reflective lights on the river. It’s beautiful. (♥ω♥*)

The guys (dad & brother) gave up in joining us exploring the market, they settled down at a small bar that serve really cheap beers.

#selfieagain. (dont mind me, *giggles) (⌒_⌒;)

Amphawa floating markets is also well known for it’s souvenir stalls.

You will be able to find all sort of unique cute little hand made souvenirs here with a very reasonable price. We got almost all our souvenirs here. (๑✧◡✧๑)

There’s a saying of “A visit to Thailand isn’t complete without a trip to a floating market“. & now, i conclude that my bangkok trip is completed. Head back to the hotel after that, the last bus is on 11pm, we departed on 10pm from amphawa, & it took us about 2 hours to reach the hotel.

These are some of the things we bought, pretty stuff with really good price too.

Guess, in Bangkok is all about food hunting and shopping.

Dad suggested that we should have supper nearby, since along the street of our hotel, there’s a lot of local food stalls. We stopped by one of the most crowded stall.

Singha beer.

Dried & fried pork, the very common beer treat.

ordered my fav. preserved egg papaya salad again, however, still prefer the one at Somtam I had earlier.

tomyam, the must have for every meal.

we call this the friend kangkung belacan, & this is what they call the fried morning glory.
for this, i still prefer the malaysian version.

steamed fish covered with garlic and green chili sauce. Heavenly, highly recommended.

After a rather satisfying meal, we decided to head for our last round of Thai massage before we leave bangkok the next morning.

Went ZEN Tara massage & spa which is also along the street of where we stay. This is the most decent looking one among all, and it’s always full. We are lucky enough to get our self a spot that night.

The place is clean, service is good, & we enjoyed the massage.

With this, I conclude my marvelous #bangkok trip.
If you ask me, I will definitely be back again! ヽ(愛´∀`愛)ノ

Till then. Cheers! .。o♡


Bangkok day 3 #1

March 12th, 2014 by tziaaa

Bangkok day 3, part 1.
(I am missing bangkok now, I guess I really need a short getaway now… (╯︵╰,))

Anyway, back to bangkok.
I woke up pretty early for the hotel breakfast for all the 4 days in Bangkok (b’cuz it ends on 1030am), it’s really not bad looking at the price we paid.

coleslaw, sausages & fried rice.

First stop of the day:

Chatuchak Weekend Market – The world largest weekend market.
(a must visit in Bangkok)

How to get there:
Take the Sky Train (BTS) to the Mo Chit station which is the last station on the line. When you arrive at the station, the market is on the right hand side of the street.

The market is only open at the weekends, Saturday and Sunday from 7am until late.

They call this the shop-till-you-drop place after Platinium Mall.❤

We then limit our self a 2 hours time to shop (which is definitely insufficient), because i was stuck in Platinium mall for 5 hours the days before. Lol.(/ω\)

This is the first stall we stepped foot in, they sell good quality & fine tourist tee, with a really reasonable price (you got to negotiate for it).

Mom was so attracted to it, and spent 30mins in that particular one stall.
By all means, she bought at least 10 pieces of tee.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sister & I decided to explore further while mom was busy choosing in that shop.

We stopped by a bar & restaurant next to the stall, name VIVA.
Beer, is the best in such a scorching hot weather.

Definitely a place to rest your feet after walking miles. Loving the homely and cozy ambiance there. Decorated with wooden chairs, tables, & a huge mirror.

Also, I heard, the cocktails here are splendid.
however, coke for the underage, haha. (ɔˆ ³(ˆ⌣ˆc)

Daddy with the chef.
Daddy was like.. eh, take photo take photo. ╮(^▽^)╭ (& i inherited that completely)

They sell almost everything here, you name it & they will have it.
Definitely heaven to shop for souvenirs.

women ruined my life? (̿▀̿ ̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿)̄
hmm, not so.

Everything here is so pretty. I really wish to bring everything back.
In less than an hour, we already bought 5 bags, and countless of clothes. ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

Accessories. (we bought a few too…)

yes, everything here is so cute.
oh, please remember to bargain. They can go as low as 70% off the price if you are lucky.

18sx. (つω⊂* )

These are also things you will be able to get in the market.
“unique” souvenirs. yes, it’s ashtray.

One thing about the market, the heat is unbearable.
stocked up your liquid beforehand or get some ice to cool yourself down.

This auntie is so cute, she even smile to the camera when she know i am taking photo of her.

besides shopping, chatuchak is a also a food heaven where you find all sorts of mouth watering street food.

my favorite, coconut ice cream. (20 baht) (´▽`ʃƪ)♡
serve along with an actual half coconut, topped with peanuts, and some evaporated milk in a coconut husk.

so heavenly! slurpppssss.

mummy finally have time to stop for a photo.
daddy mummy. 웃+웃=❤

Fried stuff. (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Mango sticky rice.
Everyone, the attention is the mango on her head. *win*

Sadly, it was just so so. (╥_╥)
Probably went to the wrong stall for it. I will be back next time for the better one.

That’s all for chatuchak.
A short, hectic yet fun experience.

To be continue….♡〜٩(^▿^)۶〜♡

Bangkok Day 2 #2

February 5th, 2014 by tziaaa

for this post, it’s all collage photos. because, i am always too busy to blog (due to the amount of photos i need to post up), but I seriously think bangkok post has been dragged for too long. So, I am here to do an express post, on Bangkok day 2 part #2. (⌒_⌒;)

after the dinner with my girls @ SOMTAM, i headed to MR. JONES & ORPHANAGE, another highly recommended dessert place in Thailand.

MR. JONES & ORPHANAGE is located is also located in Siam Square. The whole cafe is beautifully decorated with fluffy teddy bears and many vintage toys, it makes you feels like stepping into a whimsical world of childhood fantasies. This place definitely brings out the child in me.(´▽`ʃƪ)♡

However, aside from the very pretty settings, I would say the desserts here are overrated. Hmmm. (╯︵╰,)

Next up, we went to Asiatique, the Riverfront.

How to get there:
Get off the sky train at Saphan Taksin station, take exit 2, & then take the shutter boat for around 15mins to reach Asiatique. (Boat operate tills 2300 daily)

Operate from 5.30pm till late daily.

This place is beautiful, & it’s very relaxing. I personally like this place a lot, a must go in Thailand.

Eateries are aplenty over here (more than 50 stalls), filled with a lot of fancy restaurants. It’s more of a dine and drink place rather than a shopping spot. Still, there are some shops that sells pretty unique goods. The goods sold here are a lil more pricey compares to the others, but there are some which are really unique, that you probably couldn’t get it else where.

Not forgetting the Asiatique Sky, a jaw- dropping 60-metre high ferris wheel.❤

A perfect spot to spend some more chillax time with the family.
dinner, photo taking, & enjoying the night scenery by the river with lots of laughter with the loved one. ❤

We got back to the hotel around 11pm.
& we went for the massage arrange by the hotel before we called it a day.

Siam Health Spa & Massage. It’s 10mins walking distance from my hotel.
Pretty decent place, masseurs here are good too.

Enjoyed ourself pretty much (with brother constantly laughing because he felt its too ticklish).

p.s. – its a lil pricer compared to the others, & they asked for tips after the massage too.

That’s all on DAY 2.
I shall update DAY 3 asap, as it’s one of the best day throughout the trip too.

Cheers! ❤ ❤ ❤
