We woke up early and headed to Platinum Fashion Mall. It is literally Chatuchak with air conditioning and naturally my favourite place in Bangkok.
We fuelled up with some awesome claypot beef noodles. Love Platinum’s food court! Cheap and delicious!
# – Yummy beef noodles. Tendons, liver, meat slices etc.
Then we shopped till our backs were on the verge of breaking. Decided to rest and eat more.
# – Deep fried catfish with vegetable and belacan dip. Fried quail eggs. Yummy yumyum.
After the break, we continued shopping until we couldn’t shop anymore…
Lugging heavy bags of clothes, we decided to get a taxi to take us back to hotel during rush hour.
3 taxis declined to take us before we got on a tuktuk which charged quite expensive.
He was driving about a km in when he asked us to do one “tourist visit” for 3 minutes. Flat out refused, he even offered to reduced our fares. We got him to stop his vehicle and we got off.
Finally we found a taxi which would take us. Still wasn’t an especially nice experience when your taxi driver kept making his annoyance known that you had gotten him stuck in a traffic jam.
Anyway we reached in one piece, albeit over an hour.
Ate dinner, we showered. Tried on our new clothes. Talked about who’s got bigger nipples, not me.
Then we had a massage. Came back to snack in our room, watched silly reality programes on tv and now mummy sleeps while I blog this.
