Bangkok – our yearly adventure

First trip of 2015 for the US. Tally and I went to our favorite and must visit country. Bangkok (BKK) aka the land of smiles. Always wonder what an appropriate “land of smiles”. We are always smiling even to sleep. Every year we are always amaze by what we see, try and carry back. Our baggage increase as the years goes. Seriously we better exercise some self control. 🙂

When it comes to BKK, there’s always so much to share. Tonnes of places flow through our minds. So many to cover in such short period. This is also a reason why our stay in BKK is getting longer each time. We usually spend a week there so that we will not have too hectic events planned thru the whole day there. Everyone knows where to shop or eat in BKK. However, there are still places that I would like to mentioned as I feel its a worth to try or go if you have not been there.

1) Hokkaido Milk

To those who know me will know this is a rare item on my recommended list. This is Tally’s favorite. Like a baby, he must have his DAILY dose of Hokkaido milk. He personally recommends the Ceylon Tea and Chocolate flavors. Knowing him, I bet its must be such yummy milk to make him MUST drink every trip we are in BKK.

This is a chain of milk outlets. Common or easy to spot them at Siam Paragon Basement or Terminal 21 basement. All just outside the supermarket checkout counters.

2) Four Seasons at Paragon

This is a yummy Roast duck place that can be found easily at Siam Paragon. They are known as the Roast Duck Specialist.The name alone will tell you what is their main selling dish. We had our meals few times there. We honestly like the Roast Duck. In addition, they have few dishes that you can try too. Some pictures to make all drool.

The mouth watering meats…

  

3) Pastels

This is a new found love. I read about this eclair booth that we made a trip down to grab some and try. The first sight while we reach the counter at Terminal 21. The eclairs are just too pretty to be eaten. Are you sure they for consumption? next thoughts, are pretty things yummy too? The answer after we sink our teeth into the first eclair. ooooohhhhhh.. they are lovely. I am not a fan of eclairs in SIngapore as most of them are made of whipped cream. This is totally different. I tried the one with chocolate cream. Wooo.. they are simply lovely.    

4) Soi 19 wanton mee

Our usual MUST eat. Ask me what so good? It just do not feel right if we came BKK and gave the wanton mee a missed. This year the wanton mee Q shocked us. In the past, you will never see such long queue outside the shop. Time change, through the powerful media, everyone hears/read/sighted where the famous wanton mee is. So there the Q. 🙂

  

I will be back for part 2 to share some cafes we tried and yummy dessert and a onsen spa place. Stay tuned to this space.

Cake n more cakes…

Stepping into a new year always excites me. celebrating my birthday in the same month make welcoming a new year to be filled with more gathering, laughter and joys.

The first celebration for the year was done with my extended family! As we all grow older and more family commitments it’s getting tougher to get a date for all to gather together often. Never the less.. We a little effort from everyone. Anything will be possible.

Bachelorette party!

We stepped into the year with a party. one of the dearest girly close to my heart in life is getting married. the group of us been looking forward to this day. to watch our dear girl wear the beautiful gown walk down the isle to a happiness of her lifetime.

Here to our pretty.. Bride to be..

2015/01/img_5401.jpg

It was a surprise day out with her with the rest of the “jie-mei”s for her wedding. everyone just wanted some time with her. expecting that all brides to be are very worn out from the preparation, we felt a need to relax and enjoy a less hectic time together. the idea of a spa session together came to our mind.

After much research, we like to thank Ikeda Spa Prestige for its excellent service and great assistance from the beginning. We had quite a few correspondences going to and fro while in discussion with the Spa to get this day actualized. Without their co operation and great planning skills, we will not be able to have such an enjoyable time there.
