Flew to Thailand (HDY) for 3 nights and just got back today!
At the gate waiting to board. Zero makeup, that explains the RM5 glasses i got in Daiso KL and the photo treatment. Lolol. Everything discoloured looks fine.
I really am an artist. See this is front sharp back blur.
This is back sharp front blur. Not everyone can achieve this with a compact camera. UNLESS. You're like me, got lucky. Hahahaha. I also don't know how it turn out like that.
Bought this note book and pen cox i got bored waiting around cox bf and i were two hours early O.O Got them from one of the shop at Singapore airport. The pen is only $1.80, polka dot, pink, BUY.
In the air..... O.O Nothing smart to caption this picture with.
PLANE FOOD!!!!!!!!!! =DDDDD I love plane food as much as i love fast food!!!!! And yes, i ask for double serving of bread and butter. And i also took my bf's serving of bread and butter afterwards.
Mine is the one on top, Quiche with suasage and potato. Bf's cai tao kway ^.^ YUMMY ALSO!
We had 3.5 hours at transit. So we went for McDonald's cox bf say i can eat whatever i love. Although he don't particularly love McDonald's. The price is the same thou, like $7ish for one set of BB. And they serve ovaltine (i like!) instead of Milo but i still prefer Milo with Mcd!!!
Couldn't help it i feel artistic on this trip. LOL. So i took this useless picture.
Our hotel room! Nothing fanciful but at least it's cheap + near all the shopping + free wifi in room!
Our hotel building itself is a shopping plaza and opposite is a huge departmental store. You can find everything around the hotel and inside the hotel. Very accessible and convenient!
The shopping. Not the most fashion forward but if you screen hard enough there'd be nice tanks and basics! They hardly have the flimsy kind you usually find in BKK thou! It's all of okay quality, it's just the design might not be fashionable. Typically priced at 100baht ($4.50) - 350baht ($15) max.
Dinner at a delicacy shop. You can find birds nest, abalone, shark fin, scallop etc.
The 800baht ($35) pot of shark fin soup is really super worth the price. The shark fin like no need money one, super a lot, nevermind, still got like 6 slices of abalone and 3 big pieces of mushroom and lotsa crab meat etc!!! Birds nest is meh, the gingko nut beats everything else. Sweet and candied in the centre, very yums ^.^ Fried rice also good but they used too much curry powder!
Day 2! We slept at their local time 8pm the night before so we woke up at 7am O.O
Just nice 7am (6plus you can see a few setting up already)) is the time their morning market start! This is right outside our hotel!!! Nice location i said! ^.^
We explore to the streets behind and diagonally across. Mainly wet market. But if you keep following the crowd and just explore and walk along, you'd go to this area where they sell lotsa tidbits and fake branded makeup, shades and bags etc. Like a mini BKK!
After one whole day of walking we went for some other hotel's buffet dinner. Meh. $16 each, totally not worth it. But supper was good! We eat from the street side. MY SUPPER:
Mango glutinous rice!!!!!!! The nicest ever that i tried!!! 40baht only!!!! Ont he spot she cuts up a fresh mango for you some more!!! Damn sweeeeet and super a lot!!! Their coconut milk is kinda different from the one our vendors use here. Theirs is a lot more translucent, less sweet, less jelat and thick. So i can eat the whole freaking pack by myself!!!
Bf's noodle. It's like a mixture between wanton noodle and fishball noodle. But yums thou! The portion they serve there for everyone, is VERY small!!! It's like my primary school canteen portion, slightly more. No wonder everyone's skinny there!!! The biggest size i've seen (don't say aunties lah) of their girls is like just slightly chubby, that's the max.
Day 3!!! We shopped for a long time and then stop at this cafe for a break. Tiramisu, meh. Edible, not great, not too awful. But it's okay cox we didn't expect much haha.
I snapped this picture and i told bf, "WAH OMG LOOK. Art or not?! This one so sharp the behind one so blur. Look like a picture you can find in the recipe book hor?!" He shook his head, ask for my camera and then he went on to snap this picture..
obama.jpeg This is like what you can find on the cover of a recipe book. Lol.
Wednesday night market at the bus terminal! FUCKING LOTSA THINGS TO SHOP!!!!!!!!! For man, woman, girls, boys, kids, pets. Mostly priced at 80baht - 199baht. Can bargain!!! But i didn't bother to cox the very nice ones are only 100 - 150 baht. OMG THE SHOES. THE SHOES AND HEELS ETC. Moslty 100 - 130 baht!!! I almost go crazy but i manage to control 80% of the shopaholic in me!!!
The night market has like 4 - 5 sections, it's like our pasar malam but A LOT better with A LOT more varieties. Oh oh oh, it's like our bugis street level one plus level two, plus pasar malam food and dikam stalls, ALL TOGETHER!!! The bags also super cheap lah like what you can get at Bugis for $15 - $28, you can get it there for $4 - $9 max. $9 will be freaking nice one.
Bought a box of my favourite thai snack ^.^ Not sure what it's called thou. Like 20baht only O.O"
Went back to the hotel to put our stuff and then went out to hunt for supper spot. We found this zichar store run by thai-chinese, slightly further away from the hotel. It was crowded the last two nights we walked pass so cannot go wrong right or not! =D AND WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE!!! IT WAS THE BEST MEAL WE HAD THERE!!!!!!!!!! =DDDDD The deep fried pomfret was HUGE and it's damn crispy. The egg + veg dish is sooooooo nice =OOO I asked my bf to figure out how to remake it. Total damage for this meal + drinks is SGD14. Thailand, i love you.

That's all for the trip!!! Went back to the hotel and snap pictures of all the things i got! For myself and for my family and friends ^.^ I don't care lah, just buy buy buy!!! Nothing is more than 150baht except a bag i got for Mich!!! The rest is mainly 100baht.
Good quality denim shorts at 100baht each *faints* Top and dresses at 150baht each.
Top two pairs at 100baht each. Brown slipper at 50baht, the heels and wedges for 120baht!!!!!!!!
Pink dress and grey cardigan at 100baht each. MY TIE DYE SHORTS =DDDDDD MAJOR LOVE. It's like i'm wearing paddle pop on my ass hahaha. 30baht! Fake AnF tee, flora skorts, denim shorts at 100baht each. WO DE TIAN AH!!! I miss that place already.
The bag i got for Mich!!! The quality sibeh super good. She saw something similar at Bugis the other time for $28 i think. I got this for $13 only!!! All the accessories at 20baht each.
Flora pouch with waterproof lining inside at 60baht. He wanted to sell them to me at 90baht but i bargain until 60 cox i buy more than one. NOT BAD RIGHT!!! =DDD
Random tanks at 100baht each, i got them when i first arrive. Too excited. Didn't think i could get much nicer ones at the same price. Vintage tops and dress at 100baht each.
Bought polo for my dad. SUPER HARD TO FIND THIS!!! Cox last time i bought polo tee from BKK for him and he loved it cox it's very thin and he likes it cox cooling. But here the quality all super good and thicker, so i had a really hard time trying to find something of not so good quality =.=" 150 baht each! Cotton dresses at 100baht each! ^.^
Outfit for baby Yurou! Not very nice but decent lah, can let her wear at home haha. 80baht ($3.50) each set! The shoes are 50baht each pair!!! CUTE NOT!?!?!?! CUTE RIGHT???? Awwwwww. I hope she likes them!!! The shades are 40baht each. Lol. She loves to wear shades so much now that if you remove it she'd make noise until you put it back O.O Vainpot in the making.
Round shades i saw Sophie looking out for it when we were in KL. So i bought like 3 of it at 80baht each! Haha. See if she still likes them. Cath Kidston inspired pouches for 20baht lol. Not even a dollar. The rest all at 20baht each too.
Bought 5 maybelline foundation only cox it was on discount, 179baht. I run out of two-way foundation so might as well. I'm sure NiaoNiao will love it too!!! LipIce sparkly lipbalm for 79 baht i think.
Shorts and skorts i got! Mainly 150baht. Fringe bags in 4 different colours at 100baht each O.O That's why i bought 4 of the same thing. Lolol. What, i'm a Singaporean shopaholic.
Flight back. Again, i love plane food. And again, i can haz three bread + salted butter serving O.O

I am happy =) Very happy.  Not sure if there's a word that i can use to describe "happy" the way it really is. A word that's not too complicated.

Nah, i think Happy is fine =D

*insert Y U NO* meme: QQ Y U NO NOT EAT SHARKS' FIN? =[[[ It's bad for the environment (topple food web in the sea), cruel and toxic (due to their position in the food chain while we pollute the ocean). I've loved visiting your blog so far, so I'm sad to see you eat sharks' fin. =[

I hope you understand where I'm coming from. I still like the rest of your blog though.
