And more Bangkok

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Hello everyone!
The weekend's around the corner and its gonna be busy busy busy for me! :D
A baby party, a birthday party and then some.
So here's the remaining pictures from my trip to Bangkok.
Hope u enjoy the pictures!
We left the Wat Arun temple around evening time to go back to the city.
Nap, anyone? 
We chose to go back to Chinatown because we wanted to have dinner and to the flower market which is a stone's throw away from Chinatown.
This time round we had dinner at the roadside stall instead of a restaurant and it was FUN!
Bustling with activity and people!
Had some bird's nest (probably fake, but haha so cheap~!) for dessert.
Sights of Chinatown.
I know, I know.
Dun we all hate taking public transport. 
 It was the eve of Valentine's Day so we headed to the Flower Market at Chak Phet Road near Saphan Phut or also known as the Memorial Bridge.
 Bangkok Flower Market (Pak Klong Talad) is the biggest wholesale and retail fresh flower market in Bangkok.
The market has all kinds of popular flowers and flora-related items, including roses, forget me nots, orchids, lilies and more. Most of them sold in packs of 50 or 100 flowers in each, and prices are amazingly cheap.
 It was sooooo CROWDED! I saw so many roses on display I thought this is a ROSE MARKET!
Not flower market!
Monkey man.
I want a balloon! 
It was getting late so it was perfect to head back to the hotel and also to pop by Soi Cowboy! 
Soi Cowboy is a red-light district in Bangkok, Thailand. 
A short (400 meter long) street with some 40 bars, it is similar to Nana Plaza and Patpong and caters mainly to tourists and expatriates.
It is located near Sukhumvit Road, between Sukhumvit Soi 21 and Soi 23, within walking distance from the BTS Skytrain's Asok Station and the Bangkok Metro's Sukhumvit Station. 

The go go bars follow the pattern common in Thailand: alcoholic drinks are served and women in bikinis dance on a stage. 
Topless or even nude dancing occasionally occurs in some bars, but remains technically illegal. 
Most of the dancers are also prostitutes and will join a customer if he pays a "bar fine" to the bar and a separate fee to the woman. Sexual services usually take place in the tourist's hotel room.
The area is named after T. G. "Cowboy" Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977. 
A tall African-American, Edwards got his nickname because he often wore a cowboy hat.

It was pretty daunting walking down the street but an eye opener, nevertheless!
Go-go girls. 
The less cloth, the better. :p
Then we went for a quick foot massage (not at Soi Cowboy, haha!) near our hotel and ended the night with some bubbly!
-Last Day in Bangkok-
We were taking the last flight out of Bangkok so we had ample time to go lunch and shopping!
I get to SHOP!!!!!!
Bangkok has such a myriad of sights!
Sometimes its endearing, sometimes heartbreaking.
I had to take a picture of this promotion outside Baskin Robbins!
Its 'Show Me Pink' every Tuesday - which means if u show the staff something pink, you get a free scoop for any purchase! So cute!
Went to Platinum Mall!
I got alittle busy.....
Was starving so off we went for lunch!
Actually I admire how religious the Thai people are.
You can find temples and shrines at nearly any mall and people praying at any time of the day.
 Had some Thai food again!
It was delicious and we always have almost the same thing every visit!
 You can try this chain of Thai food out when you are in Bangkok!
Personally I find their food rather authentic and most importantly.. they have air-con!
 LOL, a godsend in their weather!
Streets of Bangkok.

 My heart breaks when I see the number of buskers and beggars in Bangkok.
And while the hubs is busy taking pictures.....
I am busy shopping too!
Im a dreadful wife, I know! :p 
I dunno what this is all about, but she looks interesting!
Opposition party?
It wasnt before long before we had to pack and head to the airport.
Bye bye Bangkok! It was such fun being here.

 See you real soon.
Im gonna leave you with my favourite picture from the whole trip. 
"Nothing is impossible with a willing heart."
What an amazing, amazing guy.
God bless.
Have a great weekend, all.
