#BANGKOK DAY 2 // New Year Eve ’14
All ready to shop till I drop! Haha. ╭( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑
Cropped Top, Topshop – RM19.90
High Waisted Denim Shorts – RM69.90
Believe me, they were super helpful!
Where to shop in Bangkok?
First stop, Pratunam Market.
It’s 8 minutes walk from my hotel.
It’s sunny in Bangkok, but it’s breezy. I never enjoyed my walk under the sun so much.
These pretty tops I am holding is only 80baht each!
You can get all sorts of pretty cropped top for less than 100baht here. \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥
Walked to Platinum Mall from Pratunam Market.
Platinum Mall’s clothing is slightly more expensive than Pratunam, but quality wise is better, and there’s more choices. Clothing here ranges from 100baht to 250baht averagely.
在這，不儘管買還真的會對不起自己！└( ՞ ~ ՞ )┘
The boys enjoyed too!
We spent 6 hours shopping, couldn’t go on any longer as our stomach starts growling.
It’s time for F O O D!
Next stop, Boat Noodles @ Victory Monument.
Boat Noodles or better known as Kuay Tiao Ler by the locals, is one of the #MustTry in Bangkok. (note: Boat Noodles at Victory Monument is very well known, and is refer as the Best in Bangkok.)
The 5 of us took a Tuktuk which costs us 150baht from Platinum Mall.
It’s 5mins away from Victory Monument, but forget about looking at maps or following the directions online. Believe me, ask any locals that can speak English to direct you is way easier. For my case, the Tuktuk driver directed us.
There’s quite a few boat noodles stalls there, we tried this boat noodles which has 3 outlets in the same area.
How to recognize: All waiters/waitress wear purple color uniform.
How it works?
You pick a variety of noodles (egg, glass, rice vermicelli, white rice noodle, fine white rice noodle), then choose the meat & broth. It has 5 preparations.
Oh, & this steamed pandan+coconut custard!
The variations of boat noodles we ordered.
I’ve got all the names of the noodles mixed up. Well, I don’t really know what was I eating. Because, the workers here speak very limited English. We basically just point at the menu and told them we want 40 bowls, mixture of all the variations. lol.
Head back to hotel after a satisfying meal.
& T-A-D-A-H! Showing off the spoils from the trip to Pratunum & Platinum!
It was New Year Eve, we got our-self changed & dolled up for the countdown celebration.
My #OOTN (outfit of the night) was one of the many pieces I bought from Platinum Mall.
Countdown spot: CENTRAL WORLD
It’s crowned as one of the TOP 5 spots to celebrate NYE in Bangkok.
We walked over to the mall for dinner.
Crab is one of EAT’s specialty.
After dinner, it was about 1030. We headed out for the Central World street countdown party. And, we were terrified with the huge crowds! It was so packed, I was literally suffocating. We know, we need to leave the place. ｡｡(ﾉ´д)ﾉ
There’s no space to stand at all, we were being pushed all around for 45 minutes, trying to find an exit to leave the place. We had a TERRIBLE experience attempting to countdown at central world squashing in the crowd.
We took a tuktuk back to hotel before the countdown to avoid the heavy-jam & huge crowds. Bought our-self some flashing head gears before we left, & we countdown to near year in our hotel. Good thing is, we still get to enjoyed the fireworks as the clock strikes twelve from our hotel room.
Happy #2015, lovelies.
… to be continue.
