Part II of Chiangmai

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Hello dear all!!!
Thank u for tags n comments - I will answer them at the bottom of this post.
Heeeehee.

Oooooh ~ the place is called VERANDA RESORT in Chiangmai!
They have one in Hua Hin too, so its a good choice if u have been to Chiangmai already.
:D

This is part II of what we did during the holiday.
We went walk walk after settling down in the room.



Lovely cooling weather coz the resort is up in the hills.
These are some other terrace resorts available in Veranda - ours is called the Plunge Pool Villa.



Can u guess what this is??
Its actually part of the modern Thai restaurant in the resort : a private room for couples to dine in! U can choose to eat there, its totally relaxing and the staff sends the food up!





Overlooking the reception.





U noe its a holiday coz u get to slack in shorts & a t-shirt.







The resort provides a shuttle to the Night Market twice every day.
While waiting - we enjoyed the view of the sun going down.



Soon.. we got there!
Rows n rows of merchandise.



Chiangmai has many small bazaars that u can visit, its like a long pasar malam joining together.











AFter all the walking, Jungle Boy got tired (holding his tua leng kong camera I presume) and so we decided to sit down for some local Thai food!

Tom yum soup.



My fav oyster omelette!!
Best.. with alot alot of chili!!!



And to top off the night, a lovely chilled glass of local beer.
Yum!



Continue the walk in the bazaar.



He is amazingly talented!



And wat is a trip to Thailand without some dessert?
My absoluteeee favourite!
Only 50baht...!



--- DAY 2 ---

We woke up bright and early for breakfast.



Buffet style.



Simple fare in the morning.



We chose a seat overlooking the pool.



After breakfast, we booked an appointment with the spa and then went back to the room to chill.







We watched Star World (Junior Masterchef is.. amazing!) and drank some chilled bubbly.
It is a vacation, afterall.
:D



His penchant for burgers says it all.



And I can never lose weight!



But this is still love!



Popping.



"An alcoholic is someone you don't like who drinks as much as you do."
- Dylan Thomas





And whats a holiday without some sun?



Couldnt resist.



Happy days are made of these.



But soon, the spa beckons.







Inside.





We chose the couple room.



The outside of the spa.



And we went up to the pool again.



Lazing by the pool, not wanting to go back to reality.
Ever.



The breathtaking view of the resort with the mountains behind.



And at my utmost reluctance, the sun went down before I know it - signaling the end of a wonderful day with one of the most important person in my life.
My future husband.
:)

The beginning of April marks 6 months exactly to saying, "I do".



Thank you for reading, I appreciate it all.
