Bangkok Trip 2009 : Day 1

4,605 views

07.30 am – Had soft boiled eggs,

a cup of oats milk,

an apple and

a loaf of bread.

08.30 am – This fella arrived.

Off we went in Dad’s car.

09.30 am – 6 of Bangkok 8 having breakfast at

Pinang Kopitiam. The other missing 2 consisted of the smoking one who was keeping the hiding one company. 😈 Sorry bro, had to pecah ur kang tao when checking in cause Tonkap teman-ed me.

My boarding pass.

The arrival card for international travelers arriving into Bangkok.

Wen huan : “I’m going to Bangkok, Ma!”

My roomie. Felt like sneaking a scissors in and cut out his fringe.

10.00 am – Everyone successfully passing through the boarding gate.

10.30 am – Our plane.

Look at the smile on everyone’s face. That’s what happens to anyone who travels to the ‘Land of Smiles’.

Airbus A320’s computer system.

Looks new, smells new.

“Take a peep and throw this jacket up into the air if you feel excited.”

As it was just a week after the Bangkok protests, the last 15 rows at the back of the plane was empty. 4 of us conquered ourselves a lot of space. On my left was Gaekap and

Tingkap at the

back.

In front of me was Jaekap.

AirAsia’s in flight magazine. Nice.

The air cond was so cold that you could see the smoky coldness coming out from the vents. The picture isn’t really clear. You gotta be in there to see the coolness of the smokiness.

10 minutes later.

Couldn’t help it. I just had to order this. I missed it the last time. Couldn’t afford to miss it this time around.

Had a bottle of Mount Fleur. hMMmmm…. fleur… sounds familiar.. 😈

Spent my first 1000 baht.

Another 15 minutes later.

Our champion again.

Got my water and

tom yam when the food tray reached my spot.

MY GAWD!! It smells soooOOOOOOooo gooooooooooooood!

11.30 am – And we have landed! woooOOOOO!!!! Bangkok 8 in Suvarnabhumi airport.

We just couldn’t wait to get out and breathe in some Thai air.

As soon as we got out, I went out to get maps from

the counter here.

6 of us bought ourselves a prepaid SIM card for THB100.

And Happy it was.

My Thai number.

Minus 1 hour from my watch.

Jaekap, Gaekap,

Songkap and I were in the same taxi.

01.00 pm – Half an hour later, we arrived at All Seasons Siam Bangkok. Nice hotel.

Nicer than our previous one. But not as strategic location wise.

02.00 pm – Left for Grand Palace of Bangkok. My taximates and I arrvied first. The other car was lost. The taxi driver ‘got lost on the way to Grand Palace’. Cockshit. How can you not know where Grand Palace is?

Anyways, we found our coffee shop

right next to Thammasat University and

went in first.

We were so hungry we could eat a whole Tonkap.

Our first authentic Thai meal. Mee krob.

Ka mu tom yam.

The rest arrived about half an hour later.

By that time, we’ve already finished.

03.00 pm – We almost got conned again. We almost decided NOT to check out the Grand Palace because of the touts standing at the entrance.

Luckily we decided to U-turn and managed to get in smoothly. As you can’t wear shorts in the vicinity of the temple, we paid the deposit and rented a pair of capoeira pants each.

The entrance.

The only group picture taken of the 8 of us together.

I took lots of pictures.

Lots.

The architecture of the Grand Palace was so beautiful.

Amazing.

Breathtaking.

How do you think I look in my capoeira pants?

I thought of making fun of the soldiers, but didn’t dare to.

I didn’t wanna die.

Arrived at the pants centre first and returned my capoeira pants. It was so hot that by the time I took them off, my nuts were already roasted crisp brown.

Dress code.

Saw a mini coconut ice cream stall outside and bought ourselves some.

~yum. However, I still prefer Midlands Park’s. More flavour.

05.00 pm – Arrived at Siam Paragon. ~ah, air cond at last.

(Side note: while writing this draft, I felt so much the urge to go back to Bangkok. I hope that we can go back there together some day. For someone’s bachelor party hopefully.)

Took a rest at the food court.

Taxi fare settlement.

05.30 pm – Took the juniors for a walk around the place. =P

7 of 8.

06.00 pm – Took a BTS Skytrain from Siam station to Nana station.

And then Gaekap bought

a pair of sandals for himself.

06.30 pm – Arrived at Foodland Supermarket and

went shopping for

cartons after cartons of water to last us till Day 5.

Paid 54.50 baht per carton.

07.00 pm – Found Took Lae Dee, which was part of the supermarket, and had dinner there.

The menu had so many choices of food.

In the end, I settled for phat thai.

The cool thing about this place was that patrons ate on a counter.

As such, it was pretty difficult for us all to sit next to each other.

10 minutes later. It was sooOOOOOOOOOOOooo delicious!!!!!!! Crazy delicious!!!!!!!!! I miss! I miss!

So was the caramel custard.

09.00 pm – Went back to the hotel straight after dinner, changed and came out again. Was caught in a road block. Thank God our taxi guy wasn’t a ‘red shirt’.

09.30 pm – Arrived at Grand Centara. Took the first lift up to the 22nd floor.

Went out of the halfway point and took the other lift to

Red Sky.

~fuh. I tell you. The view from here is magnificent man. Superb.

The internal structure of the restaurant was planned out so damn well.

Songkap said he felt at home. Home as in places where the high society in Bangkok hang out. nah ..|..

Ordered myself Red Sky’s very own cocktail creation. The Centara Pearl.

While the drinks were being prepapred, we took a tour around the restaurant ourselves and discovered several interesting items.

First was this HUGE, and when I say HUGE, I mean DAMN HUGE wine cellar.

It was 2 floors high.

Next was this light thingy on the floor.

So cool. Macam volcano lava flowing to the floor, forming the words RED SKY.

And then my drink came.

It looked pretty fruity.

11.00 pm – Went to THE place where cowboys of Bangkok go to.

Soi Cowboy.

Man. This place is choke full of Thai girls. And foreigners. Both men and women. Young Americans, British, Europeans. And old grannies too. Surprisingly.

I saw pretty eye opening stuff that I have never ever seen before in my life. Before this, I’ve only heard of them before in travels of my friends and relatives.

03.00 am – Went back to the 7-Eleven nearby our hotel and

bought an instant stir fried chicken with basil and rice for supper.

Tonkap deciding among the choices available.

Had to buy a prepaid card by this time as my credit has already finished.

It smells good man, I tell you. Tastes good too! Man, I miss it so much. I miss the availability of pork everywhere I go.

05.00 am – zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
