Holiday in Bangkok - Part Deux

We thought we better break the POST into TWO ... otherwise it may just cause your internet to have a TIME OUT! from reading the First One :)


It was the Amazing Thailand Sale that's happening over in Thailand.
Guess what??? No one in our hotel knew about it!! Ha Ha Ha!! Sigh!!
Baiyoke gave us a Free Shuttle trip to Siam Paragon! Need i say that Siam Paragon
is 10 times better than Suria KLCC, in terms of Layout, Retailers, Size, Food Outlets ... etc!
We took their Bubble Lift to get around the Siam Paragon.
We were so so so AMAZED at the variety of Children's Shoes that was
available at Siam Paragon! It was like WOW!! So so so many to choose from!
Err .. back home in Malaysia ... not that many. And surely not that nice designs too!
Eat your heart out Suria, 1U, Mega Mall ..... so sad lah
Wished we had the same variety in Malaysia too!!
There were just rows and rows and rows of Children's Shoes! :)
And then from Siam Paragon ... we also walked over to the infamous MBK

At MBK ... there are 7 Floors of Shopping, where you can get Clothes, Electronic Stuff,

Clothes, Handphones, Clothes and more Clothes!!! Some of the Clothes areas

can bargain too! :)

Another cooool place for Shopping was RIGHT OUTSIDE Baiyoke!

I mean the Thais had stalls everywhere in Bangkok. As long as you have a five-foot walkway,

they would set up a stall to trade business.

So we were pretty delighted to see Cheap Shopping outside Baiyoke!

YUPs ... we shopped and we found CARTERs for 90 Baht!

We should have BOUGHT a dozen and sold them for RM50 in Malaysia!

It was reallly cheap! :)

Being in Bangkok, I HAD to show Tiff the Best Hotel in the World ...

none other than The Oriental, Bangkok located by Chao Phraya River.

WE sat in the Oriental Bangkok's boat at the Saphan Taksin Sky Train stop

and sailed to the hotel.

As expected the Hotel was stunning and classic in its own way!

I managed to catch up with a colleague there as well too!

Digressing slightly ... just wanted to say that The Oriental Bangkok's brand

is jus everywhere. We saw them operating a F&B outlet at Siam Paragon

and another one at Central World Shopping Centre! Amazing!!

Guess where we went for Lunch?

Yups .. it was at the Oriental Bangkok ... next door! hahaha

We were off to the Pier to catch a Boat Taxi .. and we saw some

yummy food stalls next to the hotel and we makan there.

Tiff had the THAI Fried Rice with their Red Hot Chilli Peppers, it was

yummy-licious. And of course i stayed away from the spicy food!!!

Lunch was only RM30 baht per person (RM3)!!! Now that's Savings!

And we then took our Boat Ride up the Chao Phraya river heading to visit the King's Grand Palace, all for only 3.50 Baht (RM 0.35)

And we had nice seats that's next to the murky river .. which tend to splash up into our faces

each time we open our mouth to exclaim!!

We even had a Tour Guide who was explaining the sights and attractions in the 20 minutes

boat ride. Didn't understand a word of his Thai English accent!!

UNFORTUNATELY .. our wonderful Baiyoke Concierge didn't tell us ... NOT to visit the Grand Palace in the afternoon. WHY? Cos its closed!! So yes ... we took our wonderful boat ride all the way up to the Grand Palace stop, and was informed.

Sorry Palace closed. ... there's nothing to see!! Sigh!! Sigh!!! Double Sigh!!!

Although we didn't get to see the KING or his palace ... we had the luxury of

time to actually catch TWO movies in Bangkok.

First of all ... their CINEMAs ROCK!!!

Their Cinemas are new, nice, big, comfortable .. u name it.. they have it!

We noticed that the MOVIE industry seemed to be a pretty Big industry in Bangkok

Cos .. each shopping mall we entered, they all had their own BIG Cineplexes!! Amazing!

And the Cineplexes are HUGE!!

ONE Funny thing that happens while watching a movie is that ....

The Thais will play their National Antheme right before the movie!!

It was weird .. cos everyone STOOD UP for their National Anthem!!

Hmmm. .. i don't think it will ever work in Malaysia!!

We were very BLEST on our last two days in Bangkok to

meet up with Tiff's aunty. Aunty Hwee and her daughter Mary.

They became our guides and showered us with amazing Thai hospitality!

They brought us to so many place to makan.

And we ate and ate and ate!!

On our final day .. we went to Red Dragon Restaurant which boasts of the

LARGEST Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant in the World (see above pic)

We could see them preparing all the food! Tons and tons of DIM SUM!!

It was a super yummy DIM SUM BUFFET!!

That's us with Aunty Hwee & Mary

The Dim Sum .. just came!

And kept coming. They came so fast, that they had to stack the

food on top of each other! And we tried to catch up with them

as the food came. BUT alas ....they WON!!

The waiter mentioned that those stacks of DIM SUM containers

were ours! We apparently ate more than 40!!! WAH LIAU!!!

It was a pretty LARGE Layout with interesting settings.

We had a room to ourselves equipped with Karaoke facilities, and there were

just DOZENS of these typed of rooms all over the entire Restaurants! Amazing!!

After FOUR wonderful days of FUN, we arrived back where we started.

At the Suvarnabhumi Airport!

The Airport was again HUGE!! With many counters.

We bid our farewell to Aunty Hwee & Mary.

Who ferried us all the way from Baiyoke to the Airport.

Inside the Thai Airport Duty Free Shopping, we found things that were on SALE

.. aiyoh .. everywhere-lah also got SALE SALE SALE ...

We are grateful for this wonderful holiday time together, and we cherish it!

Thank GOD for His Blessings!

Hope u enjoyed our HOLIDAY blog :)

Our Bangkok Holiday

First and foremost ... our deepest apologies for those of you who visit our Blog for the last month! We've been extremely busy with managing both Nathanael and Zoe Joy (but a JOY nevertheless), and busy migrating one of our blogs to its own domain (painful and tiring!) and of course trying to sell our Condo and prepare to move to our New One.

Well apart from the normal hectics of our daily chores and work, we are still managing pretty well! Thank U Lord for your grace. ... its the Amazing Grace! :)

Anyway... we booked our tickets way back in January (even before Zoe Joy) was born, and we thought it would be a pretty good idea! Guess what ? It turned out to be a GREAT IDEA!

We had an absolutely, fantastic, relaxing and fun time together in Bangkok for Four Days. Before going further, we have to say a BIG Thank you to Tiff's parents (Kung Kung & Po Po) who helped looked after Nathanael & Zoe Joy for that four days and also my parents (Yeh Yeh & Mah Mah) for helping to bring Nathanael for his Therapy session.

This would be a RATHER Long post .. with lots and lots of pics. (Cos we just don't have the time to break it up by Days or by any other Categories, though we would have love to!) SO let the post load .... and slowly read on.

What do you think of, when u say Bangkok? Shopping? Tom Yam? Thaksin? (Go get your brains re-wired!)

Tiff and I had a wonderful time together in Bangkok. It was Tiff's first time away from Nathanael. Yups ...faithful and darling mother has been by Nathanael's side every since he was diagnosed with Infantile Spasm.

and this is our 4-Days story in Bangkok City!!
Our 500Baht Taxi Ride from Bangkok's New Airport to our Hotel
We stayed at the Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Its a 4-Star Hotel about 10 mins taxi ride from Siam Paragon
Its known as the TALLEST BUILDING in Bangkok with a Revolving Deck above!
This was our room! And Yes we stayed on the 40th Floor!
On a whole. The hotel is sigh ... not quite 4-Star!
But then again you're asking a hotelier to give his opinon!
The service was bad, the air in the corridor was stale, the place looked
rather dingy, and overall unimpressive. (will tell you about the food later)
Thankfully the Room was rather Large (at least 45sqm) and it was clean!
One RATHER interesting fact to point out. For any of you
future Baiyoke Hotel Guests .... don't put anyting into the SAFE!!
WHY? Because Tiffany can carry your safe and all your valuables away!
Yups ... they provide you a Hotel Safe in your room. Guess what?
They forgot to mount it to the floor / wall!! Sigh!
Guess what's the name of the Safe? Click here
(hehe .. its called THE SAFE!! Sigh!)
Imagine .. how SAFE would u feel ... if u find a "TORCH LIGHT"
in your elevator!! I mean ... why would you want to have a TORCH LIGHT
in the Elevator? Does it mean that the Elevator may have no Power????

Scarry thing to put into the Elevator! :)
On our FIRST Day when we arrived in Bangkok, this was
the wonderful raining weather that greeted us!
So wondering what to do ... and we didn't have lunch!
We thought... let's try the Baiyoke Sky Buffet .. since they were
having a 50% Discount for Hotel Guests.
OFF we went and bought our Meal Ticket (access entry point) to go up
to the 78th Floor of the Hotel to dine at their SKY BUFFET.
There was VARIETY ..... and a Pretty Long Buffet Spread from one
point of the Building and it goes around to the other side.
BUT sad to say!!! The Food Connoiseur within me would grade Sky Buffet a D!!
Yes yes.... it was a photo and Smiley Faces and Empty Dishes .. because we were famished.
BUT taste-wise ... it was not really palatable. SIGH!! So much for a 50% Discount.
OR mebbe that's why they wer giving a 50% Discount!! :) hehe
Guess the only PLUS about Sky Buffet was the View and the FREE ACCESS
that brings you up to the Deck. As u can see .. we ate till the Rain Stopped!
(And that's because it doesn't rain that long in Bangkok!!)
We caught this hotel worker in the act.
She took her BIG HUGE Water Container and filled it up with COKE!!
hahaha ... FREE Drinks on the House! :)
So after the LUNCHies at Sky Buffet, we took the elevator up further to the
360 Revolving Roof Deck.
(Guess what? It was not revolving, they shut it down for maintenance!)
We walked around and even sat in a TUT TUT on the 80th Floor of the Building
Thank GOD ...the Sky was clear and the rain was gone!!

COS now its time for us to go SHOPPPPPPPPINGGGGG !!!
