Woke up real early on thursday morning. took a cab from home to pick rachel and jac from pasir ris before heading over to the airport. :) We’re early as zhiwei and the rest are not there yet. We checked in our luggage when zhi wei, diana and marc arrived. But, some unhappy incident happened at the counter whereby we needa pay extra more for our baggage as we’ve exceeded our initial baggage allowance. But, we managed to chill and cool down rather fast as we didn’t want to damper our holiday mood :D
Initially we wanted to grab a bite after checking in, but looks like we’ve wasted too much time on the baggage, and we’re left with less than 15 mins before the gate closed! so… we needa rushed over to the gate !!
the flight from singapore to bangkok last for about 2 hours and luckily i have my ipod touch with me, whereby i completed watching xin guang da dao on it :) Weather was great when we touched down at the airport.
we took a cab from the airport to our hotel and it cost us ard 400 baht… and here’s our hotel, Citin Pratunam. Very spacious room, good service and within walking distance to platinum fashion wholesale mall :D
Free internet ready computers at the lobby.. (that’s where i do my twittering at :D)
after leaving our luggage at the hotel, as the room will be ready for check in in the afternoon.. we went hunting for food, having our breakfast as we’ve missed our breakfast at the airport …
the yummy cheesy hotdog from 7-11.
and their new year special, PIGLET BUN! haha.. (i think they did this specially for rachel :D)
before settle down for breakfast, we went to exchange our SGD to TBH (thai baht)..
me with my fav BLUE cab :D
this whole pot of mixed pork attracted us in and we decided to have our first meal in bangkok over there :D
very cheap meal for us.. approx $5 each :D.
After breakfast, we walked over for our first shopping spree for the day! WOOLALA~~~
There are tons of stuff in this superb shopping mall, ranging from bags to accessories, t-shirts to jeans and many many more.. not forgetting a food mall at the highest level.. WOO!! shopping was great! :D
We shopped till late afternoon before heading back to our hotel to check into our room…
some street food we bought on our way back to the hotel.. :D
Yummy Pork Balls!!!
and the famous fried rice with egg!! NICE~~!! (i’m missing the food over there when i’m posting these pics la~~~)
Views from our room…
We rest for awhile in the hotel before preparing ourselves for the countdown party at night :D !
We went MBK as it’s still early and at the same time to have dinner over there as well. The top level at MBK is filled with lots of IT gadgets shops, handphone, laptops, camera and many many more.. the most popular ones would be the cheap handphone covers, pouch and screen protectors!! it’s really really cheap! where all of us went to “ZHING” our handphone! hahaha.. Bought a pouch and screen protector there..
Dinner at this ramen stall which is relatively cheap :D !
Food was overall good for me and most importantly, its cheap and it’s filling :D
After dinner, we went over to ZEED for our countdown party as we’ve never went clubbing before ! hahaha.. we meet up with farid and his friends over there…
and i shall not elaborate much on what happened.. as i really have no idea what actually happended!!! the only thing i’m aware was that we had lots of fun at the club, we drank, we countdown and welcomed 2010, i was urgently wanting to pee and i was lying in bed when i woke up.. only my bbfs knew what actually happened… hahaha…
*for those whom wanna watch the videos… pm me or ask from me.. i’m not going to post it over here on the blog… *sooo embarrasing!!!*
