Lovers in Bangkok Day 3
Day three in Bangkok – the dreadful memory of having lost two days worth of holiday photos.
Woke up all chirpy and excited for the day ahead. I whipped out my iPhone while my boyfriend was still in bed, began checking my emails and BAM! My phone went blank on me. Couldn’t get it started again, so I got my boy to figure out the problem. The diagnosis: an expired iOS 6 Developer Beta preview. Apparently, my boy updated my iPhone to the developer’s iOS 6 version, not the consumer version. It expired on me and Apple didn’t give me a warning prior! Wtf was going on?!? I was confused, pissed, sad, frustrated, panicky – all in one.
We had to get it restored with fast Internet connection, which disappointingly, wasn’t going to happen with our hotel’s sucky wi-fi. So that was included in our agenda for the day.
We went hunting for more clothes for him.
We thought this jacket looked really sleek, but hey, that photo just had to cheapen it. So, it was a no-go.
Engrossed in his search.
Looking out for berms as well. They’re really much cheaper there and quality is pretty decent too.
You can find every type of clothing at Platinum – even giganormous shorts.
They have this weighing machine outside all the toilets in Platinum Mall, just to remind me of how much I’ve been eating the past few days…
If you thought the weighing machine was funny, now this – a pregnancy test kit vending machine. Oh yeah, it doesn’t get weirder than this.
Like in the middle of shopping, you’ll just go, “hey, I think I might be pregnant – lemme go check.”
Of course, I didn’t get a pregnancy test, even though I thought it’d be fun just to try the machine out. But I did, however, get myself a drink from this place.
Let me tell you, the stuff on their menu weren’t cheap. Paying 45 baht (S$2+) for a drink in Bangkok is way too much. Bottled pop at their 7-Eleven were less than a dollar each.
I soon forgot about the price of the drink ‘cos I was laughing too hard at this unusual sight.
Apparently, your drink is made in this metal cup, which as you can see, is fitted here for this deranged maniac to its crazy thing.
It was lunch time, so we went right up to the foodcourt at the uppermost floor of Platinum Mall.
The foodcourt takes up the entire floor, so you can imagine it to be huge. I just love the food here. It’s a must-go for me when I’m in Bangkok.
Being the typical Asian by boyfriend is, he ordered a bowl of kway chap, which is essentially a mix of pork innards like stomach, intestine, belly, etc. I’m not a fan, not a fan at all.
I, on the other hand, opted for a bowl of spicy Thai seafood tom yam.
I also specifically requested for this oh-so-sinful fried oyster omelette. Drenched in oil – no doubt about that. But this was heavenly.
After lunch, we walked over from Platinum Mall to Central World. We managed to get my iPhone restored for 100 baht. All we needed was fast Internet connection, so essentially, the money went into ‘borrowing’ the wi-fi connection from a phone store. -_- Oh wells. Lesson learnt.
Some Thai-inspired fashion exhibition. I quite like their designs, I must say.
You’ll find creatiity at every nook and corner of Bangkok. Like Bali, the locals here have an intrisic taste in art.
While walking around, I spotted a familiar sight. Question is, why is it that Din Tai Fung is so quiet and empty in Bangkok?
Another familiar sight.
After all that walking, we scanned Central World in search for a place to plant our asses and have our dinner.
Waiting for food to be served
Entertaining ourselves by camwhoring
I have no idea what’s going on here.
Heating up the grill
Food has arrived!
Ordered some other stuff (also from the buffet menu) while waiting for our food to be cooked.
The greedy buffet boy
Some kinda Australian Beef
Round one for the meats
It was addictive. I swear i’ll be back there next year.
After countless rounds of grilling, we raised the white flag.
We’re pretty sure we owned it this time. LOL. Words of a true buffet fan.
We walked around a lil more before making our way back to the hotel. Rested our loaded stomachs for a while and decided on a one-hour Thai foot massage nearby our hotel at 12 midnight.
That’s what I call livin’ it up in Bangkok. Haha. Miss those days already..
Day 4 to come! Stay glued! :D
