Food in Bangkok

Have you ever asked yourself this question?

 Are you a person who “eat to live” or “live to eat”?

Well, I think I’m both.

I sometimes think I need to eat in order to live even though I’ve got no appetite. This happens especially on days when you had too much good food and you tend to slowly lose your appetite.

On days when you’re on a diet or on just some regular meal, you might crave for something so badly and that’s when you will start to think that you have to live on to eat.

I hope this make sense!ahaha

So, Bangkok is not all about shopping but also a food haven.

Here are some of the food I had when I was in Bangkok last month.

Bangkok Shopping Haul 2013 ~ Platinum Mall

Today will be on haul from Platinum Fashion Mall.
I hope this will be helpful / informative enough for first-timers to Bangkok.
I actually went to this mall on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day! (LOL)

Here’s what I think about this mall;
I didn’t expect this mall to be like that as in NICE?!
I don’t know how to describe this but when others told me that it’s a wholesale mall, I would imagine a mall something like Sungei Wang in Malaysia or some kind of undecorated shops with piles of clothing left unattended or something like that, if you get what I mean here..
The minute I stepped in the mall, some of the shops that are nicely decorated actually captured my attention!!
Here’s the interior of this mall

Bangkok Shopping Haul 2013 – Chatuchak Market Haul

My first ever trip to Bangkok.
Many told me that I will like Bangkok and it’s also an alternative place to shop for fashion goods besides Japan.
So, I finally booked a ticket and landed in Bangkok on the 19th of Jan with an empty luggage.
On the day of arrival, after leaving our bags in the hotel, we went straight to Chatuchak Market  (also known as JJ Market).
To my surprise, it wasn’t that stuffy and hot as I imagined and there are many lovely designer shops.
There’s a few shops that I really like and one of them is this (pic below)
