i love zakka shop. period. haha. so i am always very excited about going to a zakka cafe where they sell many small little things that girls will normally fancy. Spoonful is another zakka cafe we visited when we were in bangkok. it is located on the second floor in a building/ mall called The Portico.

Their menus are very limited, it is just the kind of cafe for people to order some coffee/teas and read a book,cause the ambiance is fantastic.

we ordered some scones, cause that is what they are famous for. and we love it too. ( But to note: things are rather pricey in there. even the scones and drinks)Image

The third cafe on the list was the Library cafe, head so much about their signature waffles that we just need to pay them a visit to try it out… 🙂

Image

the cafe was a little hard to find and easy to miss, cause their signage wasn’t very BIG. LOL.

Image

oh well, the boy loves the waffles (he ate most of it ) and i myself find it quite nice too.  if we haven’t been eating the whole day, i would like eaten more of the waffles. hahaa. However, i find the matcha latte is a little way too sweet for me, the boy didn’t like his iced coffee either. so maybe, just head there for the WAFFLES!! is good enough….. 🙂

Address: Soi Sukhumvit 24, Bangkok

the second cafe we decided to head to is called Parden cafe & zakka, the cafe’s owners are real japanese and i really loveee the stuff in there. so glad that we managed to find the place and it definitely worth the effort to travel all the way there. ( we learned our lesson = no more walking!! this time round, we took a cab there…LOL)

the first bangkok cafe we decided to head to is called Gastro 1/6. as i was searching for some nice cafe to visit during our stay in bkk, this cafe’s reviews keep popping up in the web saying that it is a nice bunch place to go.

we wanted to take a taxi in the first place, but the taxi drivers that we have approached keep quoting us ridiculous prices, so we gave up looking for taxi and took the BTS instead.

it was only 10-15 mins train ride to phrom Phong station, very fast.Based on our experience, we advised that once u reached this station, hire a taxi to where the cafe is located at. Because, we walked damn far from the BTS to the cafe, almost 20-30mins walk!!!!

Image

Image

Image

Image

finally we found the place after much walking, but we both find the cafe worth the effort looking for it under the hot weather. (because i really like their deco and french toast)

Image

Image

Image

His big breakfast.

Image

the french toast is so amazing!! it is a “must order” if u r paying the cafe a visit.. the fruits are so fresh cause they only cut them when we placed the order. it took quite a while before all the food and drinks are served even though there is no one else in the cafe, so if u are heading there during the weekend, the wait might be quite long if there are a lot of people. we are quite lucky that when we were there during the weekday so there isn’t any people in the cafe.

LOL… finally exams are over, and i have a short break before my school starts again in mid june… and that will be my last 2 modules!! LIKE FINALLY, it has been 3 fugging years, juggling between work and school and now my new business idea.

oh well, i still managed to squeeze in a 4 days 3 night bkk trip with the boy.i hope to do a long holiday in august before i finally call quit to flying! (It has been 7 years !! in the same job!!) Time for a change of environment i guess… wish me luck.

Here are some updates, on the trip..

Image

unfortunately, my flight out to bangkok was delayed for more than 2 hours~~ and the airline gave us some sort of compensation through the distribution of tibits box and they provided some hot refreshments as well.

but what we really wanted was to get there soon, so at least we still have half a day more, however by the time we reached our hotel it was already 6plus in the evening due to traffic jam..Sucks!

Image

Happy us. our first holiday together after MUCH planning. 🙂Image

i picked a new small boutique hotel near pratunam night market. i love how they designed the whole space, and the location is quite good as well! it is only a 5 minutes walk to the pratunam night market, 10mins walk to platinum mall, 10-15mins walk to bts station. there are a few massage joints around the hotel which are priced reasonably at 200 baht  per hr for foot massage.

However, the area is a little quiet and dark during the night, so have to be careful when walking home in the middle of the night. but we never encounter any incidents during our stay there.

Image

we were greeted by this, the moment we arrived. nice!

Image

the hotel lobby.

Image

The staffs are quite friendly and helped us with our enquiries quite promptly.

Image

the design of the room was kept simple and it was clean. oh well, we only paid SGD$62 a night for the room, so we have no complaints. but there isn’t any nice view outside. LOL. if u are looking for nice view hotel, this isn’t the one for u. but this is a good choice for a budget hotel at a good location.

Image

Image

after a short rest, and it was getting late so we head nearby to the pratunam night market to grab our dinner.

Image

oh man, i missed their street food… phad thai, tom yum soup, grilled seafood. yummmsss..

Image

The tom yum soup stall.

ImageImage

Image

that all for this post.but more updates are coming on the cafes we visited in bangkok on the the next few entries. the cafe hunts were the highlight of the trip, glad we did that cause we had so much fun traveling around and eating non stop. miss bangkok already…. 🙂

Day 2 : Platinum mall, Asiatique and Route 66

the second day in bkk was packed with lots of activities. i think we are  just too crazy to want to visit so many places in one day. we were so beat at the end of the night.

Image

Image

breaky at starbucks before we start our shopping craze at platinum mall!

Image

i looked so happy lol. cause i am eating my fav corn! haha

Image

and the shopping starts… i managed to get most of my loots here… i guess this is still the best place to shop cos it has got air con!! haha

Image

Image

Image

Image

this is so cute right. the displays in one of the shop and they sell pretty cheap clothing like 100 bhat per piece.

Image

Image

then after the shopping , baby shirley brought me to try this famous wanton noodles near the mall. i must say it is really good, but the portion is really small . i think i can like have 3 bowls of it.lol.

Image

and u can choose to have crabmeat in it.

Image

Image

Image

then at night, we headed to Asiatique for dinner. it was my first time there after hearing so much about it. there are some pretty cool small shops and restaurants in Asiatique, nice little place to explore. The place is good for a relaxing evening, listening to live band and have some wine and food. 🙂

Image

we had our dinner at checkmate because they have got live band!

Image

Image

i had a short trip to bangkok last week, to meet up with baby shirley cause she is there for freaking 10days. The stay was tooooo short for me, didn’t really get to buy much but the time was well spent! 🙂 we managed to cover Chatuchak market,Platinum mall, Asiatique and route 66 during my two nights stay there. we are awesome or what. lol.

Image

i had quite an “eventful” day on the day i flew to bangkok. i missed my flight to bangkok, forgot my precious camera (cannot believe it that i actually forgot my camera on a holiday)!!!!, and had quite an episode with the hotel staff. but nevertheless, i managed to have mad fun there and came back safe and sound. haha.

Image

we stayed at Ramada Encore hotel, there is nothing much around the hotel but the room is nice and comfy.i paid 140+ for two nights , pretty reasonable i guess .

Image

Image

Image

Day 1 : chatuchak market

i guess i was tired from all the flights and didn’t slp for more than 24hrs ,i ended up didn’t buy a single thing at the market.i cannot believe it that i made all the way to the market and DID NOT see anything i fancy.
