Destination: AMAZING THAILAND (Day 02)

Continuation of our Bangkok trip..
*photo heavy*

Day 2

We planned on waking up early the next day but alas I woke up late. I was not able to have my favorite breakfast buffet. Bummer! KD on the other hand woke up extremely early. Like 6:30 am early (@_@). She was able to packed her previous day's buys, ate breakfast alone, and surf the net till 12:30 pm.

We took a tuktuk ride going to Big C Supercenter to get food pasalubongs. You can actually walk ( a 15 min. walk ) from our hotel to Big C but since it was scorching hot, we HAD to take a ride.

Tip: Of all the money changers we've been to, the best rate we got was from the money changer located inside this mall/supermarket, Big C. The typical exchange rate is for every $100 is to THB3050 to THB3060. But the money changer stall with orange logo found here exchanges toTHB3070.

KD hoarding packs and packs of Nestea Thai Iced Tea. Big C Supercenter is like SM supermarket where you can find everything related to food.

Outside we found this cool Ronald McDonald statue doing the "Sawadee Ka" hand gesture.

Just across Big C Supercenter is the huge Central World Mall.

You can find a lot of shrines all over Bangkok. Feel free to make some offerings and a little prayer.

My mom's favorite store, the uber cute Cath Kidston!

There are a lot of clothing stores found inside the mall. Both high and low end. There's also a huge Forever21 store here to all F21 fanatics out there! :P

Manila now has Naraya but still you can buy those cute cloth purses cheapest in Thailand.

I got dizzy hungry around 1:30 pm since I haven't eaten anything the entire morning so off to Central Food Hall.

We kept seeing this Ootoya Kitchen elsewhere so we decided to give it a try.

KD had Pork Curry Set with Thai Iced Tea for THB160.

I had the Pork Katsudon Set with Pepsi for THB 170. Apparently, Pepsi is far more popular than Coke in Bangkok.

After lunch, we strolled a bit in the mall and left for Platinum. We had merienda at Baskin-Robbins found at the entrance of the mall. I do not understand why we don't have this ice cream shop in Manila anymore! Jamoca Almond Fudge is truly a weakness of mine.

By 6 in the evening, we decided to check out Indra Mall. On the way there from Platinum Mall by foot, you will pass by a lot of sidewalk bazaars. Please do check them out for cheap finds.

This is the Indra Regent Hotel and beside it is the Indra Mall. We used to stay here a lot because the hotel accommodation is quite cheap.

We finally bought plastic trolleys in Indra. The luggage we brought were so full we couldn't close them anymore! You can find a lot of trendy and cheap clothes here. Remember to always bargain for prices.

We went home around 7:30 pm and retired early because we wanted to go to Chatuchak the next day. We were watching a movie here.

At 9:30 we felt hungry so we just grabbed a quick dinner at McDonald's located across our hotel. I had a Pork Burger and Pepsi while KD had a Deluxe Burger and Thai Iced Tea.

After wolfing down our burgers and just munching on left over fries, I noticed the paper place mats used.

Me: KD! Did you know you just ate a 300 calorie burger? When you finish that entire box of fries, that's another 330 calories! Cool!
KD: ( looking weirdly at me, dropped her half eaten fries ) Let's go home!
