My Last Bangkok Trip in 2014

My forth visit to Bangkok in 2014! I can never get bored of Bangkok, there is way too mnay places to discover and too much delicious food to try! Jo always manages to find new places or food for me to try. It’s awesome to have a travel partner that’s more than willing to do research on the places that we are heading to.

Usually he will do all the research then forward it to me, then we will plan our itinerary on the day itself. I dont like planning ahead because you will never know what to expect when you travel. I love being spontaneous! The other day while we were on the way to work   I was like, “Lets check if MAS got sale to BKK.” Guess what, it was RM350 two ways per pax, without any hesitation I straight away clicked PURCHASE! It’s perfect because some of our frens will be travelling to BKK on the same days so we can meet up!

As for hotels, I always try to stay in different hotels when I visit Bangkok! I’m still trying to find one hotel that is perfect for all my Bangkok holidays lol. This time we stayed in Courtyard By Marriott, it’s located behind the famous four-faced Buddha shrine. I like staying in this area because it’s really near to Siam Square, 1 station away! You can choose to walk on the bridge or take BTS. The rate of their room is around RM330/ night, the room is pretty clean and new.

Day 1 

DSC05137I totally forgot to take pictures of the room so this is the only one I have hahahhaha.

DSC05123Jo and I reached BKK just in time for dinner, so we headed straight to SomTam Nua in Siam Square.

DSC05124Have been craving for their fried chicken ever since my last trip there.

DSC05125Their famous fried chicken wings! I can finish 1 basket on my own hahaha

DSC05126

Their soft bone pork spicy soup isvery delicious too. You have to drink it carefully because it’s really spicy T____T

DSC05127The only som tam (green papaya salad) that I enjoy eating because the deep fried pork rind is way too yummy. #halocheatday

DSC05134

After dinner, we met up with Shirley and frens for dessert in After You, Siam Paragon.

DSC05129

There was 8 of us so we get to order more desserts this time! We had their new Chocolate Sphere, served with 63% dark chocolate and salted caramel ice-cream.

DSC05133The awesome Ferrero Rocher Toast with ice-cream!

DSC05132

The well-known classic Shibuya Honey Toast!

DSC05135

Last but not least, Chocolate Lava. I think this will be my fav because I find Shibuya Honey Toast too sweet and I cant finish it on my own. The lava cake is crispy on the outside and runny on the inside. The chocolate is not too sweet and just nice for me! If you’re heading there soon, you should give it a try.

Day 2

DSC05143It was a Saturday so we decided to head to Chatuchak market just for Jo’s favorite BBQ pork on a stick LOL

DSC05145This boy is super satisfied with his pork, look at that face haha

DSC05146Then he headed to his 2nd fav, strawberry ice with yoghurt.

DSC05148

After his feast, it’s my turn to shop! Super love the December weather in Bangkok, it’s windy and chilly. Bangkok is known to be a very hot city but during my 4 days in Bangkok I didn’t even sweat, not even in Chatuchak! I dont know how or why but it happened.

DSC05151

Met up with the rest for some shopping! The only picture that we took while shopping because we were too busy looking at everything else instead of taking pics hahaha

DSC05149

For lunch I had minced pork with basil and Jo had pad thai in a random hawker stall at the market because our favorite somtam place wasn’t open.

DSC05158After lunch, Jo bought deep fried fish cake for snacks… I told you, he went to the market just to eat ==”

DSC05159Then we had coconut ice cream for dessert, again…

DSC05155Met up with everyone for a short break then back to business hahaha. Jo and I left earlier so we headed to Central World to just hang out and eat more.

DSC05166There was a bazaar going on outside Central World so Jo and I took a walk there. I love it when there are bazaars in Bangkok because they have a lot of local designer items. I’m obsessed with their design and fashion, it’s simple but has a lot of personality, not to mention their quality is surprisingly good.

DSC05164Like these tops that I saw in one of the tents, so simple but it’s so nice! It’s perfect to mix and match and the quality is pretty good too. can never find this kind of designs in Malaysia.

DSC05172

Then we met a lot of Snoopy Joon, they all came from the Star lol, if you watch My Love From the Star then you will get the joke.

DSC05170Us and Snoopy Joon lol.

DSC05178For dinner we had Bonchon chicken in Central World. If u’re planning to go there please take note that you will have to wait for around 20-30 mins to get a table! I have been there a few times and it’s always full house with a long queue.

DSC05176Their seaweed french fries are THE BEST.

DSC05180Yummy food deserves more pictures hahaha.

DSC05181After dinner, we went back to Siam Paragon to meet up with everyone again for some group pictures yo!

DSC05182

Presents or me or both?

DSC05188Another group pic!

Day 3DSC05194

As usual, Jo did his research on where to have brunch and he found this Thai styled brunch located in Thonglor.

DSC05197It’s a rather small and cozy place for brunch and their food is pretty cheap! I strongly recommend you guys to give it a try,  it’s called Plearnwan panich located in Thonglor 13.

DSC05200The interior of the cafe is pretty old school.

DSC05198

Complimentary snacks before your meal, their serve us fried dough fritters with condensed milk.

DSC05199They also served each of us a glass of hot tea and I ordered a glass of Thai milk tea, I forgot to ask for less sugar so my drink turned out to be really sweet. Thais just love their drinks sweet, right. If you dont like drinking sweet tea I won’t recommend you to order their milk tea ==’

DSC05206We ordered their traditional Thai “big breakfast”, as you can see it has sausages, minced meat, sunny sided up eggs, green onion and toast. It looks weird but it tastes so good. I love everything that has green onion and eggs so this is perfect!

DSC05208Then we went over board and ordered their cute looking toast with egg custard which is our roti bakar and kaya lol. Jo says their kaya is really yummy, it tastes more eggy/custardy and the panda flavor is quite mild.

DSC05210I was like, “Let’s just order every thing la, we came all the way here to feast  remember?” So we ordered their coconut puffs. I’m so angry at myself because I totally forgot how much everything costs but I remember we only spent around RM30 for 4 dishes and 2 drinks, quite cheap right?

After brunch, we took a taxi back to Platinum Mall, as usual nothing nice to show because I was busy hunting for nice clothes but I was quite disappointed la. I should stop going to Platinum already because I can never find anything there. I prefer shopping in Siam Square.

DSC05215

So we went back to Siam Square and we passed by Mr Jones Orphanage in Siam Center. Since I have never been there before, we decided to just give it a try.

DSC05220Interior is nice, setting is nice but their cakes are just average =( I’m sorry if you’re a fan of this cafe.

DSC05217We ordered a passion fruit shortcake and it was so disappointing =( Maybe we ordered the wrong cake but I dont think I will go back there again because their drinks also quite bad.

DSC05224

Did I hear you were hungry? Hahaha we got hungry after walking around Siam Square for few a while so Jo brought me to this beef noodle place in Siam Paragon. It’s called Nuer Koo Premium Beef, 4th floor in Siam Paragon.

DSC05222Their beef is really not kidding man, super fresh and delicious!!! They slice the raw beef into  thin slices and served in bone marrow soup with noodles. The soup is served hot so it slowly cooks the beef! It’s just too perfect! The awesome part about this bowl of treasure is that it only cost 85 baht T___T, I know right.

DSC05223Then we added another bowl of sirloin with soup only! Too yummy to stop eating haha.

DSC05225Siam Square has changed so much since my last visit!

DSC05228They opened a new Hello Kitty cafe le!!

DSC05229And a new mall called Siam One.

DSC05230Then we headed to Srinakarin Train market, it’s quite far from the city but it’s worth going! So many things to buy and look at. If you want to know about about how to get there and stuff, I guess I will pass it to KBCG because they blogged about it before and they did a good job on this haha

DSC05232One of the very cute looking shops…

DSC05235A lot of retro treasures!

DSC05236If you’re looking for a Jersey Boys’ style mic stand you can also find it here lol.

DAY 4

DSC05237

Took a pic while waiting for our hotel tuk-tuk to drop us to the BTS station! I love the idea of free shuttles in hotels, so convenient.

DSC05241Our flight back to Malaysia was in the evening so we had plenty of time to try more yummy food! I have never tried boat noddles before (even the one in Malaysia) so Jo brought us here, it’s self proclaimed THE BEST OF NOODLE BOAT. Win liao lor the name.

Just Google boat noodle alley or just take the BTS to Victory Monument, walk around the monument and get down at the Fashion Mall. Its just behind.

DSC05243

They have two different flavors, beef or pork. I, of course chose pork.

DSC05247We started by ordering 7 bowls, Jo – 4, me- 3

DSC05248We also ordered their deep fried pork rind with fried shallots!

DSC05249

Burppp, only managed to finish 3 bowls but Jo finished 5 bowls hahahahah. I dont understand how can people finish 10 bowls lo! It’s super filling le. The best part is that they are only 12 baht a bowl. Jo loved it so much that he says he wont try any ones in Malaysia so it won’t ruin his impression of boat noodles.

DSC05252Candid shoot while waiting for BTS.

DSC05254

Went back to Siam One to hang out because we didn’t get to explore the night before.

DSC05253When you have time to kill….

DSC05255

Then Jo was like, “Lets have Honey Toast again before heading back.” This round he ordered a baby sized toast with macha ice cream. It’s not as sweet as the Shibuya Honey toast because the green tea ice cream is not sweet at all. Jo loved it!

Off to airport next and back to reality! I really want to go back to Bangkok again and again to explore more food and places to share with everyone!

Till then…

    Hi Bobo! Which place would you recommended for shopping in Bangkok?

    Hey Bobo, love reading your travel posts! hehe. I just got back from BKK not long ago and i have to agree Mr Jones Orphanage is overrated! I went to the Siam Center branch. Not sure if the one in Thonglor is better. The cakes are just so-so ( TBH it’s actually dry wtf) and service is below average 🙁 And it’s not cheap! So disappointed. No next time because there are just too many cafes and good food in BKK, you wont wanna revisit the below average ones! haha.
