[THAILAND] o19. AFTER YOU DESSERT CAFE 

If you could only make one dessert pit-stop in Bangkok, it has to be AfterYou Dessert Cafe! In the absence of distractions (animals, excessively hipster embellishments) the establishment focuses on a competitive menu  and plain awesome desserts! Since Taiwan’s Dazzling Cafe experience and toasty good times in Korea’s trendy coffeehouses, I’ve not had good toasts in a while.Continue reading “[THAILAND] o19. AFTER YOU DESSERT CAFE “

[THAILAND] o18. SALA AYUTTHAYA

Thailand might be most famous for vernacular and religious buildings, but its modern-day architecture has surpassed world-class standards. We hunted down this structural wonder, with the luxury of time and an inexplicable need for coffee, situated across the famed Wat Phutthaisawan, along Chao Phraya river. Sala Resort’s boutique accommodation in Ayutthaya features 26 guest rooms (all uniquely designed) including a duplex river view suiteContinue reading “[THAILAND] o18. SALA AYUTTHAYA”

[THAILAND] o16. DAYTRIP TO AYUTTHAYA

40 miles north of Bangkok lies Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, capital of Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. Ayutthaya Kingdom was destroyed in 1767 by Burmese army who took down the city. Ayutthaya, like Rome, has since left most of its ruins within sight. Officially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is its Historical Park, whose ruinsContinue reading “[THAILAND] o16.

[THAILAND] o15. VINTAGE ROD FAI

Talad Rod Fai, Bangkok, is an open-air bazaar peddling an insane array of vintage collectables, quirky kitsch and memorabilia from yesteryear. Since its move in 2013 due to an expansion of the BTS Skytrain line, its reappearance at the new site accommodated a bigger, more international crowd. I loved the old Rod Fai next toContinue reading “[THAILAND] o15. VINTAGE ROD FAI”

[THAILAND] o14. SIX HANGOUTS TO HIT IN BANGKOK (FOODIES ONLY)

Perks of having native Thai friends – they’ve tried it all and only take you for the best. I had the honour of my Thai native friends’ undivided attention 5 days in January this year. Knowing us (foodies who were through with tourist traps in the big city), the pair of them took us gallivanting throughContinue reading “[THAILAND] o14. SIX HANGOUTS TO HIT IN BANGKOK (FOODIES ONLY)”

[THAILAND] o13. BANGKOK ON IMPULSE

“I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free” ― Angelina Jolie 2 Jan – 7 Jan // There are only two places I travel to on impulse when alone:Continue reading “[THAILAND] o13. BANGKOK ON IMPULSE”

[THAILAND] oo3.Scuba-Diving: Underwater Koh Samet

Upon leaping off the speedboat, we dived approximately 15m underwater off the shores of Koh Samet. Watch our dear friend Ice (also the videographer) prod and poke at our video superstar. In actual fact, this scaly friend is our scuba-diving instructor’s personal trained pet – it does tricks upon being rewarded in food and kind.

[THAILAND] oo2.Island Lovin’

Headed for Thailand’s Koh Samui with my favourite travel pals in exactly 3 days’!! ❤ So stoked about scuba-diving, and living the island life in my friends’ resort. Also can’t wait to start partying at the local hotspots on Chaweng Beach. On our last trip to Koh Samet, another offshore party island in the Gulf of Thailand,Continue reading “[THAILAND] oo2.Island Lovin’”

too close for comfort

Bangkok Jam and World War Z to celebrate Enkee’s post-23rd (somehow silly me forgot to take Joyce again…) Happy ten-years of friendship ENQI! NYGH wouldn’t have been the same if we’ve never met; we would have missed out on hiding and talking under the covers of our blue high school jackets (which we NEVER tookContinue reading “too close for comfort”

[THAILAND] oo1. ISLAND AND THE CITY (Bangkok – Ko Samet)

The minute our home-bound aircraft took off, I missed Bangkok already. Even with my infected tummy hurting so badly from seafood poisoning, the land of a thousand smiles can’t shake me off. Thailand, I will be back!! The amount of insane things we did on this trip was kept to a minimal We capped itContinue reading “[THAILAND] oo1. ISLAND AND THE CITY (Bangkok – Ko Samet)”
