My Bangkok Trip - 19 - 22 Oct 2011

Hi Friends

It has been almost a month since I came back from my Bangkok shopping spree. I was really too lazy to post up the pics. Thank God I am feeling a little hardworking today to show you some pictures. 

Warning: This post is picture heavy!

Due to the rain and flood, many warn me against the trip but I prayed for a dry weather and true enough during the 4 days there was no rain at all except one evening (just a little drizzle). I thank God for His goodness to provide clear sky during my trip. When I came back, I heard from my friend in Thailand that Chatuchak market was flooded on the next day.

Centre Point at Wireless Road (Witthayu) - hotel lobby

The nice hotel that I stayed with my friend.



Some landscaping at the hotel surrounding:








Plaza Athenee - the hotel opposite where famous celebrities patron

The famous Erawan Shrine

The street in front of the hotel

Look at the double lane for train

Inside Siam Paragon

Night market - near Siam Station

Look at the polish - bottle shape is like OPI but not OPI - don't be fooled!

I visited the Pharmacy that has Boots No 7 - so I hauled some eye shadow..ha..ha.
Platinum Mall - a place not to be missed! I will come back again to this fashion paradise!



The shops there are well prepared to face the flood. This is outside iStudio


Some pictures of Chao Phraya river:

Water level at Chao Phraya river - almost hitting the land




I did not take the river cruise, just taking pic


Look at the water level at Chao Phraya river



Chao Phraya river - taken from the train

Some pics taken at Chatuchak market - this is the largest open air market in the world (I think). On the following day after I left, this market was flooded.






These funky colors are for the hair - look at the girl who is selling (bottom pic)  - she did her hair so nicely with the colors


Fresh orange juice is everywhere in Bangkok and the fruits are really cheap!

Paad Thai - like fried koay teow but eat with sugar, peanut and chilli powder

The famous coconut ice cream - not very creamy though. I ate another ice cream but did not take the pic.

The multi colored corn

Glutinous rice seems to be the local Thai favourite. I tried this and like it.

Finally....ta..da..my haul 
The brushes are from Platinum mall

Accessories are mainly from MBK and Chatuchak

Clothes are from Platinum Mall and MBK

Bags from Chatuchak
That's all folks. Hope you enjoyed the pics.
