Day 1 : Weekend Gataway to Bangkok

This time a week ago, I was on my way to the airport. Yet again. This time for a shopping weekend with my sisters to KrungThep, meaning City of Angels. It was a last minute thing, but we manage to get ourselves there, shop till holes appeared in our pockets our hearts out and arrived back safely. No unrest or disturbance or anything of that sort. 

But sadly, my camera decided to give up on me. So not much pictures from this trip.

Lydia & Joyce. Boarding our plane.

We arrived. I went hunting for some food to break our big notes. Then we took a cab to our hotel in  Silom. Car fare THB250 + THB70 for toll + THB50 for additional airport charges.

Arrived at our home for the next 3 days, a 5-star hotel in the heart if Bangkok. Room on the 58th floor and overlooking the Chao Phrya River. Awesome!! More on hotel later.. 

After we went oohing-aahing and snapping gazillion photos in the hotel room, we took a walk out towards Patpong Market, hoping to find a place for dinner. 

Our stomach was protesting loudly after walking for over an hour. Finally settled on Silom Village Trade Center, slightly pricier but was at least decent with free show to boot :)

Whole Coconut. TNB95 each 

Deep Fried Crab Meat & Ground Pork stuffed in Crab Shell. THB150 for 2 pieces. 

Spicy Deep Fried Fish Maw, Cashew Nut, Dried Squid Salad. THB180. 

Green Curry Beef. THB150. 

Silom Village Trade Center is an open air concept seafood restaurant surrounded by shops. After dinner, we walked around window shopping. It all looks so expensive and we wanted to save our money for the biggest market ever at Chatuchak. 

We ended the night with cheeses and bacon-wrapped sausages from 7-eleven and snuggling up our 5-star beds while watching chick flicks.
