A Day In Bangkok

These are some really good and cheap sandwiches from the convenient store. I arrived in Bangkok after 18 hours on an overnight train from Hat Yai.


Lunch was a generous portion of fish, squids, pork gizzards, glass noodle and a cup of ice coffee, all for 45 baht.

I love the concept of this photo exhibition at Siam Paragon. It was a smiley portraits collection of people from different walks of life, both locals and expats, young and old. DSC_0009 


I wonder if this was a result from pebbles catapult, rubber bullets or maybe gunfire from the recent political turmoil.


The metropolitan is back in form, vibrant, like how it was.


I went books shopping too, at one of the best used-book store in Bangkok.


Coffee break at Silom Complex just before dinner. It was more of a i-am-just-too-tired-to-continue-walking-so-i-ended-up-here, thanks to the non-working intuition. I got lost twice heading towards the wrong direction.


Lumphini park is so gigantic, that I had a hard time figuring out which exit leads to Suan Lum night bazaar. But getting some fresh air under the mellow sun at 5pm is pretty relaxing.


I settled dinner at Suan Lum night bazaar just before dusk. The bazaar is an exact replica of Chatuchak weekend market except this runs daily and without the scorching sun.


Dinner! It wasn’t as good as the one I had for lunch. I guess standard goes sub-par when they operate at a place so touristy like Suan Lum.
