I looked forward to this week wherein we finally got to be complete! Kay has been gone from Manila for 10 months already. Personally, I can't believe how fast time just zoomed by. It was a week of togetherness filled with loads of catching up and laughter. Our agenda had quite a consistent pattern which revolved around shopping, eating, watching HBO, and sleeping! Even though it was like that, I must admit it was still loads of fun. Thai food was good and affordable. I had Thai milk tea, addictive spicky snacks, pocky, and of course thousand layer crepe cakes which simply were the ultimate must feast for me! :)
We got to check out something fun too or else King would be super bored. We went to Siam Ocean World for some underwater adventure. (siamoceanworld.co.th) Siam Ocean World like all quality oceanariums around the world would have the glass tunnel. They got the glass boat rides and the fish spa as well. The more unique thriller was the diving opportunity with the sharks. No assurance of course in terms of survival! Hahaha. I will let you in a secret. Did you know that if you purchased those entrance tickets as a foreigner, they will be charging you around P900++ ? This is way too high a mark up versus a Thai person purchasing the ticket. Thai person is charged P300++ !!! So don't be fooled. :) What you don't know can hurt. Hehehe. Good thing my sister can speak Thai so she was able to get us the appropriate fee. :) Whew! There were 5 of us. 900 x 5 would have been such a rip off! ;D
During our first night, Kay treated us to some Thai food at Yum Tum in K Village, a little Japanese eating & shopping place. Greyhound Cafe (www.greyhoundcafe.co.th), Fuji (fuji.co.th/2009/TH/home/index.php), Coffee Beans by Dao (coffeebeans.co.th) and the Coco Curry House were the family favorites.
Bangkok was always considered paradise for Shopaholics!
We got to go to a Catholic Church since we celebrated Easter Sunday there. This is the Church Kay would go to for Sunday mass. We also got to attend the Fashion Fair at the Impact Exhibition and Convention Center where Maroon 5 just performed! I thought the design and lighting were nicely done. Oh yes splashes of pink. I always found the Thai folks to be very creative.
One highlight especially for King was riding the Tuk-tuk during instances wherein no taxi wanted to take us home anymore. It was a 3 wheeler motorcycle with a fancy finish that kinda resembled the jeepneys we got in Manila. It was quite fast though and I found it amazing how it was able to load all 5 of us given the little space. Well that's a glimpse of my Bangkok Trip. Hope to see my sister again soon! :)
Just a year ago, my family headed for the North to check out the Bangui Windmills which really rocked! Those white windmills served as source of electricity for Ilocos. Beaches were beautiful as well!
All about the traveling Queen who wanted to share with the world the little and great discoveries that have brought her joy.
