Back from Bangkok
28th Aug – 31st Aug
I had a really interesting time in Bangkok. Apparently, ppl thought we were Thai, Philipino and Singaporean. LOL!!
Stuff wuz so cheap (exchange rate is RM 1 = 10 baht)….its like shoppin in Petaling Street…but i didnt really buy much. We (my family & I) did a lot of sight-seeing
- Grand Palace – Big courtyard with the palace & other admin offices
- Siam center, MBK Plaza – shopping
- The Golden Mount – this big temple which is gold and we had to walk up countless of stairs
- Thai restaurants
- A river cruise (and dinner) along the Chou Phraya river
I especially liked the river cruise…coz it was a new experience for me. Except that the band so “pok” (duno how to translate this)!!!!!!! Lousy..!! and they even had this Mat Rock singer…OMG! Uh….bad experience..dat part. I managed to see a lot of nice buildings along the river bank and the “main attraction” – according to the brochure – was the biggest suspension bridge in the world – no idea whether it’s true or not?
Shopping….i didnt really buy a lot of things…juz a couple of souviners for ppl back here. Oh yeah…but i did buy 2 things which i absolutly love. One is a pure silver pendant studded wif rubies & cubic zirconia (sp?) and another is a decorative light which is like christmas lights but each bulb is covered with coloured dried leaves to give the impression of flowers…really nice!!! hope to post up a pic soon. But anyway here are some pics of the trip…
