Bangkok Day 1

Bangkok Day 1 

that's my flight at 17.25 to Bangkok via flyscoot.... =) 

while waiting for Mabel in Terminal 2 

that's our plane.... =).... currently my favourite budget airline due to the bigger leg space...  

was happy to find out that all cabs from the airport now charge by meter fare..... it only cost us ฿270 + ฿70 toll fee = total S$13.60 to reach our hotel, Baiyoke Boutique which is located behind a super smelly alley of Baiyoke Sky in Pratunam area 

interesting clock in the hotel lobby

pretty pretty lift door

Our beds in room 807....    ฿1600 per night = S$32 per person per night....very happy with the room but sad that they do not provide free wifi.... =S

artwork in our room

dropped our bags and headed out for dinner immediately.... 
the 路边摊 where we bought our dinner from

chef and kitchen helper cum waitress at work 

Mabel with her plate of fried cellophane noodles 

making crispy yummy sweet banana pancake

saw this at the roadside store and thought of chunyang's sunshine.... 

first purchase at ฿100 (S$4) each... gave joyce one to give to her ah boy and left with 2

฿100 (S$4) for Alvin

฿80 each (S$3.20)...super flimsy singlets... 

anyhow anyhow go downstair buy dinner can also chalk up S$20 of shopping....that's the power of bangkok.... everything is just so cheap that one just buy and buy without thinking.... who to give the purchases to comes secondary....
