*pardon my English. I am trying to improve myself here.
..from Ayutthaya [P2]
We reached Bangkok city around 6 and it was raining cats and dogs! The van stopped at Victory Monument and we quickly took out the raincoats and walked to the BTS Victory Monument station. It was weekend, packed with the locals/travellers, raining and we had to walk with our backpack. It was damn tiring but we had to go through it. This time we were heading to Saphai Pae Hostel in Silom area. (THB300/RM30/night/person). I booked the hostel before we were heading to Ayutthaya.
We reached Saphai Pae around 8pm, checked-in and was given the access card. Both Adila and I were at Level 1 which is for female only dorms. Keri was at Level 4 or 5 for mix dorm. The dorm was SUPERB! Will tell you why later :D
After freshen up, we decided to look for our dinner. It was a tiring day but we were damn hungry! Still raining and the tuktuk guy offered to bring us to halal resto/stall with THB40/RM4. We agreed and hope on the tuktuk. I still prefer the tuktuk in Ayutthaya, they are cuter. Hehe.
The driver brought us to a fancy resto and we felt uncomfortable. When we went through the menu, they served pork! We did not wish to make a big fuss of it. we just paid the tuktuk guy and ask him to leave.
We walked and decided to have dinner at KFC *facepalm*
It was around 11pm and we just walked around and saw a pasar malam there. Without having any idea, we just strolled along pasar malam. Then we saw girls with 2-pieces undergarments. Ehem. It was Patpong area! Just go google what is Patpong all about :P
|Patpong, reminds me of my 2 abangs. Hi Fareq & Don! :p|
|I wish i bought it, now only regret geez!|
It was such a veeeeeeeeeeery long day for us and we went back to the hostel and had a very deep sleep on such a comfy bed and the duvet. The duvet is to die for! So heave yet so fluffy. Reminds me of cotton candy, I dont know why.
Every bed had their own bed-lamp, power plug and a card slot. You need to slot in your access card to use the power plug and the bed-lamp. So cool for a hostel. And the bed. And the duvet. Feels like sleeping in a royal bunkbed. LOL.
|The Duvet, so fluffy I'm gonna dieeeee!|
It was Sunday and to Chatuchak we go! We checked out without knowing where to sleep that night, no hostel been booked yet, and trying our luck later walk-in to any hostel. Left our backpacks at the counter and off to Chatuchak.
It was damn crowded and busy place with sooooooooooo many cheap things that can make you go crazy! :p Feels like buying this and that but I was on a really tight budget, even the things there were so cheap cheap cheap I tell you!
|Cute colourful lights|
|How to look awesome :p|
|NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!|
|The busy Chatuchak|
|Chocolate coated frozen banana is highly recommended! So good!|
We explored Chatuchak without realizing it's almost their closing time. Chatuchak market only open during weekends until 6pm. Like, seriously 6pm.
Then we realized that we had not decide on where to sleep that night. So many distractions in Chatuchak until we totally forgot about our beds later. I think that we should probably go back to De Talak since we were missing the homey feeling there! Trying our luck calling the hostel (thank God I took their name card before) and voila, there were rooms for us! Yeay!
Went back to Saphai Pae, took our backpacks and headed up to De Talak. Kinda happy to think that we were on our way back to De Talak, macam balik kampung! :p
On our way to De Talak, I dont have any idea why we were talking about learning basic French. But that was our main topic on the whole journey back to De Talak. Once we checked in, Keri whatsapp-ed me "Dormate aku French!" and I was like ...............speechless. They invited us to lepak with them at the terrace, how can I say no? I was trying hard to remember few basic French phrases from my berkarat memory, it was almost 4-5 years since I left my French classes.
And I never thought that I am going to enjoy talking to strangers! They are a bunch of awesome people! :D
We had a good laugh that night, thanks to Google Translate :P
|Alex, Aurelia, Poulo & Chyntia. Next to Adila is Anna from Philippines.|
|Say hello to Damien hihi|
|This was the 1st time Alex taste a honeydew :O|
|Let's learn basic Thai!|
We dozzed off around 2am with not a single plan for tomorrow (yet).
.to be continued (again).
