New Year Eve in Bangkok ❤

旅行成癮症狀一:
“即使剛結束旅行,也總是在計劃下一次旅程。”

#BANGKOK DAY 2 // New Year Eve ’14

Started off the day with a good breakfast.
Breakfast buffet in Eastin Hotel is really good! (ˆ ڡ ˆ)

Fully charged!
All ready to shop till I drop! Haha. ╭( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑

#LOTD. 最近戀上淡妝,5分鐘就搞定的妝,還不錯吧!

#OOTD

Cropped Top, Topshop – RM19.90
High Waisted Denim Shorts – RM69.90

Comfy ready-to-shop outfit!

The boys!
Believe me, they were super helpful!

They helped me to carry my stuff and, took all my candid shots. ❤

Vain touristy shots along the Pratunam streets.
Bear with me. Haha. ʅ(‾◡◝)ʃ

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-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥

#SHOPASMUCHASYOUCAN

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!└( ՞ ~ ՞ )┘

You will definitely need a luggage like these when you shop in Bangkok!
I got this for 350baht.

The boys enjoyed too!

Go to 4th floor, Platinum Mall for Men clothing.
You can get quality shorts for about 300baht here! ♡

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.

We decided to try this stall because all the 3 outlets were packed, and most of them dining in are locals. So we thought, it must be good!

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.

It’s 10baht/bowl.
Rather cheap compared to the boat noodles back in KL which cost us RM1.90 per bowl.

Oh, & this steamed pandan+coconut custard!

It’s so good that I had 5 cups of these before the boat noodles is served. The aroma and flavor is unmistakably good! I love it! ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

Coke served with crushed ice in metal cups.

We were pretty ambitious.
We ordered 40 bowls. ᕙ། – ڡ – །ᕗ

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.

Conclusion, I wouldn’t say it’s fantastic; But, definitely flavorful, & addictive.
We finished up all the 40 bowls in less than 15minutes. *win

pork balls.

Enjoying my Kuay Tiao Ler! ❤

#missionaccomplished!

Head back to hotel after a satisfying meal.
& T-A-D-A-H! Showing off the spoils from the trip to Pratunum & Platinum!

#shoppinghaul.
It was a fruitful buy, I love every single piece of these! (♡´౪`♡)

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.

This blue padded bralet (with back zipper) & skort only cost me 200baht.
The quality is good, & it fits me perfectly! ヽ(愛´∀`愛)ノ

I bought this blue ribbon hairband from Pratunam market for 100baht.❤

有人在偷拍我。(¬‿¬)

I am wishing for a #better2015 for me, & you.
It’s my wish to grow spiritually, emotionally, financially & mentally with you. (‘:

The boys took way longer to get ready. Oh well.

Everyone looking good! ❤
Coincidentally we were all wearing blue/blue-ish grey that night.

Countdown spot: CENTRAL WORLD
It’s crowned as one of the TOP 5 spots to celebrate NYE in Bangkok.

The street countdown party.
We reached there on 8pm, & it’s already super crowded.(;╹⌓╹)

There’s plenty of snack stalls along the way.
Also, a lot of stalls selling flashing headbands and balloons.

We walked over to the mall for dinner.

There’s a few beer gardens (Heineken, Singha, etc.) in front of the mall. Wanted to dine & drink there, but the queue was ridiculously long.

We ended up in this restaurant name EAT (Eat All Thai) instead.
Found out later that EAT IS considered as one of the best restaurants in Bangkok for Thai home-style food.

Some of the dished we ordered that night. ❤
The price of the food here is pretty reasonable, & every dish is filled with goodness. Yums!

Crab is one of EAT’s specialty.

EAT’s special omelette fully stuffed with crabmeat & prawn is definitely my favorite that night. I love every bite of it! So delicious that every bite of it makes me a happy girl! (≧ڡ≦*)

My awesome travel mates. ❤ ❤ ❤
Thank you for making me a happy girl throughout the trip!

Bua Loy with Salted Egg Yolk.
I find it just okay as I don’t really fancy warm dessert.

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.

Finally, we got out after about an hour!
& here goes the happy-successfully-escaped face.

There’s also a big amount of crowd outside the mall.
Well at least, there’s walking space out here.

Despite everything, you are the one I wish to spend every new year together. (๑′ᴗ‵๑)❤

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.

Probably not the best way to countdown to new year, but the accompany makes everything beautiful.❤

Happy #2015, lovelies.
… to be continue.

Cheers!❤
