Entry: 7 days in bangkok Tuesday, November 27, 2007



It took me awhile to make this blog entry. Well aside from so wasted pa kami, inantay ko pang maderecho ng unti yung english ko. Heheh! I got used to using singular nouns only and in the present tense lagi. Lam mo naman Bangkok, it's the land of twisted tongues and nasal tones! Big SmileHahahah! But other than that, what can I say...I really adore the place. Mikka also fell inlove with it instantly! Carlos had fun too. We had doubts if he could keep up with the walking and the late nights and the street foods...but to our surprise..kami pa ang sumuko. Siya pa nga ang nagyaya magwalk instead of taking a cab. Addict pa sa tuktuk. Lagi na lang "Mama, trike! Trike!" Hahaha! And Carlos ate a lot! He was hungry most of the time. Like his dad, he loves the food in Bangkok. Sobrang kain nang kain.

The new airport was a great welcome to us. Ang laki and ang ganda talaga. Then we couldn't find our sundo, Anurak, but no worries, we decided to take a cab. Aba ang Tonio! He went to the airport counter rather than go out and get a cab. He got a CamryShocked..the new one ha, just to bring us to our hotel. Tsk tsk! Para daw feel niya na tourist sya. Oh whatever. Hahaha! Pero okay na nga yun, kasi he was supposed to get the new Benz ba yun, buti na lang sinundan ko sya..haay or else...sayang 1,500 baht! That's one of the pinag sayangan namin ng baht...but it was worth it naman, the ride was great. The other waste of baht was my perm! SadHaay! Should've just had my hair done at MBK. Early kasi kami nakabalik sa hotel nun, kaya nagyaya ako magpa-parlor. Ayunn..it was a disaster! Ndi kami nagkaintindihan noh, we were communicating with the use of a Thai-English dictionary. I didn't want to argue naman, so okay na...i thought na paayos ko na lang when I get back in Manila. Oh well...yun lang naman. Big SmileThe rest of our vacation was great.

Safari world was fun. There were new attractions,  giraffe feeding  and the aviary where you can also feed the birds. It was really such an experience. Ocean World was really awesome. I've been to Ocean Park when I was young, but it's nothing compared to this. The sharks were amazing. The giant aquariums were mesmerizing talaga. And there were real penguins!!! Tonio loves penguins, kaya I was so Smilehappy to be there watching them with him. What else..the malls are nice. Lahat newly-renovated. Central World is really different now compared to before when it was still the World Trade Center. Parang they demolished the whole building and built a new one. Ganun kalaki ang difference, it's really nice already. But, Siam Paragon is the BEST. Really nice. Nice. Nice. Nice. Big SmileSuper ganda talaga. Well almost everything in Bangkok was  eye candy when we were there because they were preparing for their King's birthday. Aside from  dressing up the streets and buildings with ribbons and lights, most of the Thais were wearing yellow, it's the color for Tuesday daw kasi, which was the day their King was born. Ang ganda nilang tignan, nakakatuwa.

And lastly, let me talk about the foodTongue. The fried rice was as yummy as I expected it to be. I ate it as planned...with sweet mango and chicken ass. Sarapp! Shabushi was also as yummy as ever..we only ate there once, kaya medyo bitin pa ako. Breakfast at the hotel..of course, I still couldn't get enough of it. (Kaya I gained so much weight!! Wahh!) And in this trip..may nadagdag sa foodtrip list ko. That's Blizzard at Dairy Queen. They have chocolate extreme, which is a mix of choco chips and brownies. Yumm talaga! And their blizzard is not as sweet as ours ha. 25 baht lang smallest size, dito 65 pesos. Duhh?!?! And..Pepper Lunch! I think that resto is from Singapore. Ang sarappp! I had the salmon, grabeh sarap talaga. I heard that magkakaroon dito sa atin, sure hope it's true. Ano pa ba? Yun lang..ah, iced tea in supot with crushed ice, sarap pa rin, best drink in Pratunam. Ah also..the McDonald's cheesy fries! Yummy ha..unlike Jollibee's, the cheese wasn't salty. And of course my inihaw na fish na I buy at the night market in Pratunam, with 5 baht na yummy rice. Haaay. I'm getting hungry! Infact I haven't enjoyed any meal I've had since we got back, ndi naman, I enjoyed our dinner last Sunday at Pho Hoa..pero yun lang. I'm still craving for the food in Bangkok. But it's okay, I know I have to start losing weight again! Wahh!!Hurmph

So that's about it. Bangkok never fails to amaze me. It's not just me and Tonio now, also Carlos and Mikka. WinkHehehe! They already can't wait to go back. (Click here for our pix)
