BangKok Trip 14-17Jul 2013


My First trip with Sharlyn...
The rest of my friends were not free to accompany me...
I got this Jetstar ticket during promotion....
2 tickets for the price of one....$247 for 2 tickets...
Meaning each of us have to pay only $123.50...
Cheap isn't it.......

Oki, time to board the plane....

And chop chop... we have reached BKK...
And took a cab to our hotel, Budacco...
Its near Baiyoke Sky... in case your cab driver doesn't know where your hotel locate....

This hotel service is really very good... for the price we paid...
Per night stay was only about sgd50plus?

Good service, clean rooms, comfy feel, good breakfast....
Location was good too, its just at Pratunam...
Easy to get to platinum mall too....
And there's a massage shop next to the hotel....

After settling our stuffs in the hotel....
Time to hunt for some food... very very hungry....

So, Sharlyn brought me to a famous place at Pratunam street selling porky rice and wanton mee...

And soft and smooth... yummmyyy

I felt the wanton mee was soso.... and the portion was super small...
2 spoonful of noodles... GONE!


So, after the meal... Off we went to Chatuchak...

Last round of their wanton mee before we leave...

I feel the one with soup taste nicer....


Bye Bye BKK~


For the whole trip... we took only cabs and mrt....
And to realised cabs could be cheaper than taking the mrt at times....
But remember to ask to have meter on... if not dont board....
Some cab drivers will ask to visit some place... its for them to collect some stamps to have free petrol...
Just tell them you doesnt wanna it.... waste time only...
We did not take any toot toot car.... got to know from our friends that its actually more ex than cabs...
Those are to TOK the tourists... who thought that they are cheaper...



That's all for bkk trip...

No more trips for 2013 i guess....
Not sure when will my honeymoon be...
Cos i'll be starting my studies again right after my wedding....

Talk about wedding...
It's less than a month time from now!!!
arghhh...
stressed... excited.... scary.... nervous.....
all sorts of feelings....

Not sure when and what will be my next blog about....
shall think about it...

Maybe my newly renovated house?
Stay tuned!
