BKK Day1 2009
Before my memory fades, i think i shall hurriedly write on this. and this is going to be a photos-laden-post’.
Last December was a very meaningful month for me. Besides the birthday celebrations, parties and the hang-outs to attend; i had a day trip to Penang with MAS; and also a trip to Bangkok (with aunt and her friends) for the very first time in my life 😛 It was a 3days 2nights trip where we focused mainly on shopping and food.
Once again, I was flying with MAS
The roti canai breakfast set that MAS served was quite cute in shape. 2 pieces small rounded roti canai-s with curry was quite filling for the morning but i found that the curry was not spicy enough….
We arrived at Noon and hurriedly checked into the hotel located at Soi 6, Siam Square and rushed to this Thai Restaurant – Somtam located at Soi 5, Siam Square. Their business is always very good during weekdays. Do spare some times to wait for your seats. We were required to queue and wait for about half an hour to our turn.
the small thin entrance.
Their fried chicken is a must to order. well marinated and deep fried into crunchy golden brown, juicy and fragrant.
This was something special but fiery one. The spicy noodles topped with chicken meat floss. definitely not something for the kids.
Mango Salad. both were really appetizing yet spicy
Another must order, ermmm, sorry can’t remember the name but there are pictures on their menu. So, you don’t have to worry bout it. This is the sliced grilled pork or something. It was as good as the one in A Wet, Taman Segar.
Fragrant Thai Rice
We tripled up all the dishes above and guess what?! We spent only about RM 260 for 14 pax. cheap huh?!

Due to the lack of car parks, the cars were all double parked. The car’s ownder will leave the job to the guards if the blocked-car wanna leave…
# Tea Time
During the shopping at this area, I had an opportunity to try out a few snacks but didn’t have enough time to snap the photos of snacks and their stalls. Time was super precious when shopping in BKK.
Dashing through stalls by stalls, shops by shops, the ladies got tired and opted for a place to rest their feet. These ladies could really shop and i was the one carrying their shopping bags. T.T
Mango Tango – A mango desserts place where every dessert are made with mango.
Soi 4, Siam Square

By dinner, the ladies chose to have Japanese meal at Kabuki located in Siam Paragon. They ordered a lot but i managed to capture only these few.
Kabuki Japanese Restaurant
Ground Floor, Siam Paragon.
We took away the lovely cheese cake from Manna,Thai Restaurant located a few door steps away from Kabuki.
Huuuulalalalala, the cheese cake was extremely creamy, dense and the caramelized walnuts added extra kicks to the cheesecake; but it was on the sweeter side. anyhow, I will still pay a visit to Manna for their cheesecakes or perhaps a Thai meal here next time (heard their Thai food is good too).
Okay, back to shopping again in Siam Paragon and the happening streets nearby. 🙂
