BANGKOK TRAVEL DIARY: DAY 3



We decided to have some kind of "retreat" after 2 days of intense shopping and go for cafe-hopping instead on the 3rd day of our trip.

To my surprise, Bangkok is actually much more than just shopping and Thai food! There are actually A LOT of cafes in Bangkok to explore. We managed to visit 3 cafes, get some good Thai massage in a spa nearby, and spent our night in Asiatique.

BREKKIE ORGANIC CAFE
6/9 Soi Promsri Sukhumvit 39 Klongtan Neau Wattana Bangkok

Take a break & have a brekkie.

Many thanks to this girl right here for doing all the research on where to have a nice brunch / tea.
P1110269
This place just makes me feel so calm, relaxed and serene with the morning sunshine casting through the windows.
P1110273
We ordered an Acai bowl, and it was huge. It was my first time having an Acai bowl despite having been exposed to its photos for countless of times on Instagram. Do I like it? Yes! I actually enjoyed it a lot, and it was definitely a healthy and tasty option to kick-start a beautiful morning afresh.

A peculiar looking cup of blue tea which was practically tasteless.

Who loves the decoration like we do?
GRAM CAFE
1/F, 49 Terrace, Sukhumvit Soi 49, Bangkok, Thailand

Moving on, we had a satiable lunch at Gram cafe, which is just 10-15 minutes away from Brekkie Organic Cafe.

Jestinna's Bacon Aglio Olio

My Soft Shell Crab Burger. It was really delicious and I'm totally craving for it right this moment.

After lunch, we walked to D'ARK Cafe (which was just a 5-min walk from Gram) for some dessert and coffee. By the way, they do serve main courses too!

Weird-looking sorbet that we couldn't manage to finish.

After that, we treated ourselves to an one-hour spa, which obviously made us feel much rejuvenated!

P1110358
Then, we Uber-ed the way to Asiatique. You can actually get there via BTS and then the boat, but at that juncture we were just too lazy to walk anymore. LOL.
P1110347
There are more than 40 restaurants in Asiatique, and of course, we opted for Thai food since it was already our last night in Bangkok!! 
P1110350
Seriously, I need to go back to Bangkok soon. I really can't emphasis enough how much I miss the heavenly Tomyam soup and Pandan Chicken!!
P1110360
Before we left, we stumbled upon a store that sells snacks and we were happy that we bought some popular local snacks (such as dried mango, Thai instant noodles, Thai Pocky, etc) home!!

BANGKOK TRAVEL DIARY: DAY 1 & 2


Hi guys! I finally have the time to blog about my Bangkok trip!! Just in case you didn't know, I traveled to Bangkok for 4 days with my girl-friend, Jestinna last month! It was such a fun-filled trip and now I can't wait to go back again!!

So on the 1st day of our trip, we went to the famous Chatuchak weekend market. We arrived Bangkok on Sunday, and by the time we were done settling into the hotel, it was already 4pm+. Jestinna told me that Chatuchak market only opens until 6pm, so we had very limited time to explore the market :( 

We reached Chatuchak market at 5pm...and guess what? We only had 1 hour to shop lol. 1 hour was definitely not enough for us, because there were SO MANY shops!! By the end of the first day, we already bought more than 10 pieces of clothes from Chatuchak market alone! HAHA! 

To be honest, of all places that I went in Bangkok, Chatuchak market was the best. They offer a huge array of up-to-trend garments at very affordable prices! How affordable, you ask? The clothes that I got costed not more than RM40 each!!

P1110031
So this is how Chatuchak market looks like! 
P1110030
Look at how they mix and match the clothes on the right!!! SO NICE! 
P1110033
Jestinna and I LOVE this shop called KADANG - everything is only 200baht! 
P1110078
Chic sunglasses up for grabs! 
P1110083
Travelling tip in Chatuchak market: Wear light, keep yourself hydrated, put on a pair of shades!
P1110085
Mini ice-cream with colourful sprinkles! What a cute and perfect way to beat the heat!
P1110086
Love the fashion yo.
After shopping in Chatuchak market, we took the BTS to SIAM PARAGON for dinner!

P1110087
Beef fried rice
P1110088
TomYUM soup. *geddit?* I, REALLY, MISS, THIS! 
P1110089
Finally I got to try the famous Shibuya toast in After You!!!
P1110090
Met up with my friend, Charmayne, who was also in Bangkok that time hahahah!

DAY 2
Rise and shine! On the 2nd day, we went to Em Quartier, Platinum Mall, Pratunam Market and Hello Kitty House!!

Em Quartier is basically a shopping mall that houses plenty of luxurious brands. We went there not for shopping, but for Bon Chon Chicken (it's something like Kyochon chicken lol).

P1110137
Feeling hungry already? :p
P1110169

P1110193

After lunch, we went to Platinum Fashion Mall, which is a wholesale shopping mall. I didn't manage to take any photo, but there were some snippets of the mall in my vlog!!

But, frankly speaking, Platinum Mall is overrated lolol. I only managed to get 2 pieces of clothes because the clothes they sell in Platinum Mall don't really suit my style, and the few that suit my style were overpriced. In my opinion, Chatuchak market is way better! :P

P1110222
Have been dying to go to the Hello Kitty House in Bangkok, and I finally made it omg!!
P1110231
The cafe was so well-furnished with the HELLO KITTY theme!! (lol, the hello kitty cafe in Sunway Pyramid is nothing compared to this, #sorrynotsorry)
P1110235

P1110258

P1110264
We went to After You for bingsu after dinner, and it was really good omg!!! No wonder After You is always full-housed!!
OK actually I made a Bangkok vlog too, so feel free to check it out!!


MII HOTEL IN BANGKOK


 I was so, so happy that I finally got to travel to Bangkok this year!!!!!

I had never been to Bangkok, and the idea of visiting Bangkok has been sitting in my bucket list for the longest time. All my friends who have been to this city kept telling me how interesting and fun their trip was, which only added to my anticipation for this long-awaited trip!

Actually, my trip to Bangkok was a last-minute decision. It so happened that Jestinna and I were talking about traveling, Bangkok's shopping experience and food, then we were like omg: since both of us are on holiday now, let's go to Bangkok!!

We booked our flight tickets and hotel 4 days prior to the trip, and I'm glad that we found this new hotel called MII HOTEL in Bangkok, which I will be sharing with y'all in this post!

P1110006
Just testing my camera lens and see whether it's working hahaha!
P1110576
Yes, here we were - Mii Hotel, Srinakarin.
How to go to Mii Hotel from the airport?
Without much consideration, we went for the easiest approach: Uber! It took us about 40 minutes to reach the hotel, and it only costed us around 445baht (around rm52)!

P1110578
It doesn't really have a typical hotel-exterior, but it just somehow emanates an aura of home - it almost feels like I have been away for a long time, and this place has been awaiting my return.
P1110580
With the friendly staffs from Mii Hotel!! 
P1110633

P1110018
There is a public swimming pool at the 5th floor!

Alright, so there are 6 different room types in Mii Hotel: Standard, Balcony, Pool Junior, Garden, Suite, Pool Suite. 

Ours was the Pool Suite, and needless to say: it was splendid. Well, I'll let the photos do the talking!
P1110010
First, there's a bathtub and it's super clean and white omggggg.
P1110011
I extremely love toilets that look bright and immaculate, just like this one! 
P1110012
If you don't feel like using the bathtub, no worries, there's a shower too!
P1110013
Storage, storage and storage! Keeps your room neat, tidy and mess-free throughout your stay!
P1110014
And our bed - IT. WAS. SO. COMFORTABLE. I had no problem falling asleep at all, and I never wanted to leave the bed in the morning.
*cues Maroon 5 - Never Gonna Leave This Bed*
P1110015
A grey-toned chair that gave the room a firm, but comfortable modernistic-aesthetic push.
P1110017
Yup, a balcony for you to sip on a good cuppa at night! (Don't think anyone would want to sit here in the afternoon because it's actually quite hot hahaha)
P1110022
This room has totally taken the emphasis of wooden furniture to the next level. As you can see, there's a wooden table and chair for you to do your makeup, curl your hair, eat your cup noodles -literally do whatever you want while basking in a artsy laid-back atmosphere.
P1110023
The TV (that we never watched) hahaha!
P1110025
This is the #ootd reception area. I'm totally in love with the woody interiors accentuated with grey-based palettes and also marble textures. I see it as a subtle combination of luxury and humility, don't you think so?
P1110026
The cafe - one that is sure to plant itself permanently in your bed of memories. At least it made me feel that way, upon the very first glance of its elegance.
P1110094

P1110098
With its beautiful and minimal interior, this hotel has officially become Jestinna's favourite spot for #ootd's. 
P1110027

Now that I have walked you through the interior of this hotel, I will now talk about its location.

Mii Hotel is located in Srinakarin, which is within a stone's throw from Seacon Square, a shopping mall. However, it's quite far from the more touristy spots like Siam, Platinum Mall, Chatuchak, etc. Its nearest BTS station is the Bang Na station, but to cover the distance between the hotel and the BTS station, it is recommended to catch a cab.

So we pretty much Uber-ed every day during our trip, but I feel that it wasn't a problem at all because it's super easy to request for Uber in Bangkok!!! MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT'S VERY AFFORDABLE.

So why bother walking+bathing in perspiration+squeezing among other patrons in the BTS when you can sit and relax behind a driver who takes you right to your destination?
