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.

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!!!!

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)

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.

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…. 🙂

Recently, i been doing a lot of readings on food and nutrition. i find some of the topics in these books are very interesting, and i would like to share them with u all. 

From the book : The  beauty detox solution.

in the first chapter of the book, it talks about how our body is designed and how it affects our diet. According to the author, our human body (generic make up) is very similar to that of primates: monkeys, chimps and gorillas. We shared 99.4% of our DNA in common with Chimpanzees.

Look at our hands,fingers, nails and teeth are just like the chimps. in particular to the teeth, are flattened like the chimps(except the front canines) , which can be used to open up the harder shells of some fruits and our back molars are appropriate for grinding plants for easy digestion.

Carnivorous animals (e.g tiger) on the other hand have short inflexible “fingers”, sharp fangs for hunting and eating raw meat and claws for ripping into the fresh of their prey.But our hands, teeth and bodies are simply not designed for hunting and consuming meat ,we have to use tools, weapons and utensils instead.

okay.. so basically we look different from carnivorous animals,and it turns out that our digestive tract is built differently too. For example, our human liver has a low tolerance for uric acid, a by-product when digesting animals protein.in contrast, the liver of the carnivorous tiger contains uricase which is an enzyme used to break down uric acid. This enzyme gives the tiger’s liver 15 times the capacity to break down uric acid than a human liver.

And not only that, our human intestine is extremely complex and at around 13 feet (just like gorillas). it is designed to be long so that there is adequate time to absorb the minerals and nutrients of fruits and plant matter whereas the tiger has a short intestines so that it can quickly get rid of the acidic waster matter that is the by-product of animal proteins.

so what does all this mean to our diet?? The gorilla is a natural vegetarian with 86% of its diet consists of green leaves, shoots and stems. the gorilla gets all its protein, vitamins and minerals from its plant based diet and is in fact the strongest animal on earth, pound for pound.so what happens when we have the biological make up of a gorilla but we eat like a tiger??—> i find this really makes sense when i was reading this chapter. 

THE KEY TO BEING HEALTHIEST, MORE BEAUTIFUL IS EATING THE WAY YOUR BODY WAS DESIGNED TO EAT!!

and like other strong mammals on earth- the elephant, wild horse, buffalo are all plant eaters.THE STRONGEST ANIMALS ON EARTH ARE ALL VEGETARIANS.These gigantic animals all gets their proteins from amino acids- the building blocks of proteins in plants. i find this really a solid and convincing proof.

what do you think? it is not about cutting meat out of your diet totally, maybe reducing the quantity is good enough. 🙂 maybe what our body needs is just fruits and vegetables to stay young and healthy, and not mask, moisturizers, cleansers.

hopefully one day i can still look great without putting on make up!!! lol

oh man, finally i can take a breather and blog about my “back to school” party. i was suppose to organize an event as part of my school assignment. i was quite stress up with the preparation but thank god it is all over now. 🙂
