When it doesn't seem right

1. Stop

2. Take a deep breath.

and then,

3. Start all over again.

 

It's gonna be alright, we just have to get over it, together.

 

 

If it doesn't work out, then let go.

Aftermath of Gossip Girl Fashion

Anyone who loves Gossip Girl are tend to love the apparels in the series even more.

I've never get bored with Blair Waldorf's over-polished but classic timeless upper east-stereotype.Serena Van Der Woodsen's effortless boho chic style is absolutely fabulous though. As much as I love plaid, Jenny Humphrey in season 2 has always been my eye candy too! And there're random appearance of bags and dresses and this and that and everything that I like. Aww.................. 

I am amazed for how many others are in search of it too and apparently I'm not the only stupid one's, thank god *relieved kaokao*

After watching the show, I went nuts looking for hair bands/headtie, from satin to bows to ruffles to pearls to rhinestone, from black to white to rose-pink gold etc etc. (One of the reason why I don't like about series, it's poisonous!)

New bling up members after my recent first and second attempt, all from diva, One Utama. Spent few bucks more to RM100 for three items, call me silly call me spendthrift...

Left to right:

Pale pink Wrap-Around with gold ornaments RM39

Gypsy Diamante Hairband RM33

Pearly Hairband RM19

 

But I'm still smugly while looking at my victories. I can't help.

 

Serena Hair 1One of my favourite bling-up in the series with Serena's signature never-perfect natural wave ♥

*wonder if I can emulate it with my newly bought Wrap-Around...*

Souvenirs

Confession:

I was bribed by my very own brother to cover/back up for him in the company when he was away to enjoy his Bangkok trip.

These Pocky Pockies are the bribe that he offered. All the way from Bangkok, the land of junk food.

p.s: Strongly recommending Pocky Chocolate Crush and Almond Crush

No joke, Thailand indeed not only a land of freedom, a city for fair price shopping spree, it is also a land of junkie, really.

Junk Food Koh Samui

Check out my part of my Lay's potato chips I've got from my Koh Samui trip beginning of this year. There're plenty options of Lay's which are not available in Malaysia, it's cheap, and yummie!

 

YAY~!!

Finally baby has back from Manila~~ ♥

So much as "souvenirs" from Manila... More like an evil attempt of the boyfriend -.-"

Theme of the event - Hollywood red carpet cum runways.

 

Models1

I was totally failed in capturing apparels and models as the fact is damn cruel that the models were posing for mostly bigass SLRs. There wasn't any room for poor compact-grapher, how pathetic.

 

Remedy of the night - cutie photographer strike a smile to me as my camera pointed to his direction :D

*** *** ***

My initial planned dress-of-the-night. A floral dress that I bought from Suan Lum Night Bazaar, Bangkok - a dress which I just fond of it for some reasons while no one else in the world does.

 

Due to some unfortunate reasons I've had to change my dressy plan to something casual. And I'm gonna tell you why...

 

Ladies and gentleman, babies and elephant, picture below may caused irritation.

Skin

A week plus ago I noticed some blisters on my both legs. Thinking that it was some insect bites or skin irritation, I have been ignoring this issue until these few days.

It has never cure but getting worse and worse - it has developed blisters and reddish, swollen, eventually became some open wound. Pain and itch almost killed me.

Conclusion:-

There's no way I can go out party with this pair of legs in dress, FML.

 

Finally seek for skin specialist's assistance today, doctor diagnosed it's due to dry and sensitive skin. I've given a DermaVeen lotion to maintain and restore moisturise, a cream for open wounds, as well as a scar gel (Scagel),

Cross fingers and pray for me - get well soon for dresses!

Work-quarantined

Morning to noon in the shop.

Evening till night in those stalls.

Paper works during free times, keeping mind occupied with where why how what.

 

I can't believe that life can be so simple and routine.

And lifeless.

 

Yet I'm living well with it.

 

Amazing.

My Bangkok trip is all about shopping

And a little bit of clubbing. scanning through my photos, not as much as any other trips I had in these years ever since I had a (or should say SOME) decent camera(s). Due to my very very intensive shopping schedule, due to melted make up, etc etc. Any reason about being blonde and bimbo, is a bimbo trip anyway.

 

I'm not too sure what I can blog about a shopping trip. Maybe I shall try share about my personal shopping guide in Bangkok. It's personal anyway, ALT+F4 if you don't like it okie?

*Ultra long post warning.

First and foremost, let's talk about Accommodation.

Hotel Ibis Nana, located at Sukhumvit Soi 4, Bangkok. Official site click HERE.

Personal experience:

Average sized hotel, newly opened beginning this year therefore it's ultra squeaky clean and bright. Few years more then I wouldn't be too sure.

Room size is average too, nothing too fancy, but I like it clean and neat.

I'm happy with the customers' service. Credits to the friendly staff who Google for me on the spot upon my inquiries for restaurant's location, and he even printed out a map for me, credit plus plus.

- Hairdryer checked.

- Mini Bar with complimentary mineral water checked.

- Internet Lounge checked (pay per usage so I never use).

Location wise, it's not exactly in the city centre but it's about 5minutes walk to Nana BTS station which two stations away from the city centre, 10-15minutes tuk-tuk to Suan Lum night bazaar.

Free shuttle to BTS station is provided from hotel.

Cons - Their house keepers never bother to change bed sheet on daily basis, a chocolate stain that we left at the edge of the bed sheet has stayed with us through the 4d3n journey wtf.

Bring your own toiletries. If you can recall the soap dispenser in public toilet - that's how the toiletries been provided.

This is the lobby. Thank god a new hotel memory has replaced the impression of Hotel Brinchang wtf

The room interior.

The toilet.

 

Next comes my main concern, shopping.

 

♥ Day 01

We'd deliberately planned our arrival on Saturday to catch the Chatuchak weekend market (or J.J by the locals). Where you can get everything from there, from apparels to home deco to food to plants (they caged the plants cruelly and sell them to simply anyone) to artsy crafty stuffs to to everything even you have only a few cuddly teddy bears you can spread a mat on the ground and sell the few teddies too.

Oh and then if you want to, you may buy animiaos there and courier them back too.

How to get there:

Travel with BTS Skytrain via Sukhumvit line to Mo Chit station, and take a roughly 5minutes walk from the station.

Travel in Bangkok city with BTS is totally dumb-proof, everyone with a brain can make it, trust me.

This is what people does in Chatuchak - they eat, and then they shop till drop, then sit for chill out drinks, then shop again till dawn.

CupcakesPretty Cupcakes that has bluffed me with it's sugar-coated look.

PeopleNot surprise if you were to bump into some parade for unknown reason or some dudes who uniquely skilled like this

In Malaysia, bazaar frequently reckoned as "pasar", regardless a pasar malam, pasar pagi or Pasar Seni, they are normally very very pasar-ish. But in Bangkok, shops in bazaar may look great too.

My favourite shop in Chatuchak, selling handmade accessories. Very very English princessy, both their stuffs and interior, minus the guy storekeeper.

 

Victories Show-offs:

By wantik -

Two BAGs, one HAIRBAND (this is from my favourite shop!), one BELT, one DRESS.

 

By wantik's two sisters -

Uncountable great value everything.

 

By miaoz -

Two pairs of VINTAGE SHOEs, one pair of checkered SHORTS, two BELTs, one BANGLE, one COTTON SILK WHITE DRESS,one HAIRBAND from miao's favourite shop, three T-SHIRTs (for miaoz herself, for mummy and for sis), one LINEN SHIRT for dad.

 

First night itself the Saturday night, of course we wouldn't miss out the opportunity to hit the party scene in Bangkok. Impressive clubbing experience in Royal City Avenue (locally known as RCA). Will share more in Day 3, stay tune!

 

♥ Day 02

Good morning world. Taken in Ibis Nana hotel lobby.

 

AppetizerMain CourseKick started our day with Lee Cafe @ Central World - located at the busiest commercial district of Bangkok, neighbouring major shopping complexes included Gaysorn, Siam Paragon, Siam Center. Walking distance to MBK, Pratunam Plaza, and Platinum Fashion Mall (to be introduced at Day 03).

How to get there:

Travel with BTS Skytrain via Sukhumvit line to Chit Lom Station,

p/s - Don't forget to pay a visit to the famous Erawan shrine that houses a statue of Phra Phrom which worshipped by the locals and believers from all over the world.

 

Personal Experience:

In Gaysorn and Siam Centre, you can find a lot more super premium designer brands which not available in Malaysia or some even ultra not wearable I don't know how in the world they can have business. And yes there's even Ferrari showroom in Siam Centre, salute.

Branded goods/designer goods in Bangkok are comparatively priced higher than in Malaysia. Eg. A Burberry polo tee that priced RM3xx in Malaysia, I found it 4xxx Baht after 50% discount. Shu Uemura Make Up Removal Oil priced RM270+- in Malaysia, found 3xxx Baht. Therefore I wouldn't recommend friends to purchase branded goods in Bangkok, not even if there's 50% discount, trust me.

What to buy:

1. Naraya Bags and Accessories - authentic Thai fabric products for daily usage, maximum practicality at reasonable price.

2. Lingerie in Zen Departmental Store - lingerie shopping in Bangkok is sooooooo the insanely addictive! Wide range of selection, pretty designs, great price too!

Except these, nothing much for me in shopping centres. Bangkok shopping is such contradict that you can either buy too cheap or too expensive stuff, nothing much in the middle, really.

 

When the night falls, that's the time for the real shopping war at Suan Lum Night Bazaar.

How to get there:

Travel with MRT to Lumpini Station, and then take an estimated 5minutes walk to the bazaar.

What to buy:

Everything!

Suan Lum is locally described as "the most luxurious market shopping experience in the city", you may find mixture of everything in there with a more comfortable way of shopping without sweating like a pig.

Personal Experience:

1. Almost every shops in Suan Lum claimed their items as "handmade in-house design which you can't find it anywhere else".

Some maybe true - there was this vintage jacket that I really like it and it was apparently overpriced so I just walked away hoping to find it somewhere else with better price, but sadly that was the first and last time I ever seen it. I can't believe till now I'm still regretting wtf.

Some are false - I bought this dress and the day after I met the origin of it in Platinum Fashion Mall (to be introduced at Day 03), the supplier actually told me it's pretty overpriced and I bought something similar with super low price. FML.

2. If it's not due to time constraint, I'll advice you to spend two nights to shop in Suan Lum - first night for browsing and "targeting" as well as price compare for the best deal.

 

Victories of the day:

by miaoz -

Two DRESSES, one TOP, two BELTS, one BANGLE from Suan Lum. LINGERIE all from Zen Departmental Store, Central World. Naraya cosmetics & toiletries POUCHES from Naraya, Central World.

 

By wantik - LINGERIE from Zen, DRESSES and SHORTS from Suan Lum.

 

♥ Day 03

Untitled-1English Breakfast @ Took Lae Dee Sukhumvit, a 24hours fusion restaurant by Foodland.

Frankly, not quite good experience :p

First stop of the day - Windows shopping in Gaysorn, the luxury shopping centre in Bangkok which house exclusively high-end luxury goods and designer labels.

 

Fine I cannot even afford a piece of scarf from Gaysorn, so I found my place at Platinum Fashion Mall, located about 10minutes walk from Gaysorn - the wholesale fashion shopping mall at Pratunam.

Personal Experience:

Yea it's a wholesale mall, so it's nothing else to describe than cheap, I mean really really cheap stuffs are selling there. Perfect place for girls but nothing much for guys (poor boyfriends).

Gather a group of friends you'll be able to get a much better deal with bundle purchase of min 2 or 3 items.

Bangkok is always Bangkok, even in a wholesale mall, there's space for you to bargain, but it's probably a price down of few 10s baht, so it's up to you whether it's worth for your time or not.

Food PlatinumAfter shopping late lunch break at Platinum Food Court.

KFCKFC Drumlet and Chewy Cheese too!

 

In fact taxi charges in Bangkok are pretty cheap, and there is no extra charge for midnight. But taking a cab during peak hours is definitely not a wise option. You might most probably ended up stuck in traffic jam helplessly just letting you precious travel time slip through.

In the evening, we hop onto a tuk-tuk to go back to Central World for a final shop-through. Siting in a tuk-tuk travel among the busy traffic is indeed quite a too fast too furious experience, for some reasons, tuk-tuk doesn't seem to require to follow traffic regulations.

 

Central WorldCentral World always tend to have cutie eye catchy decorations here and there.

As well as buggy service for tired shoppers. OMG it's so cute! 

The OMG-so-Blythe washroom in Zen, Central World.

 

The final night, we decided to explore the street food along our hotel road, Sukhumvit Soi 4. Sukhumvit Streets are pretty much flooded by tourists, massage services and pubs and clubs and convenient stores and lodging and even whores are everywhere that reachable on foot.

After dinner, we'd hit the happening clubbing zone, RCA (quite the similar with our Jalan P.Ramlee) - a street where trendy clubs that play various music genre.

How to get there:

I'm sure you wouldn't want to take tuk-tuk or train to club, right? So what else than taxi? Bangkok taxis are never too expensive, bear in mind, just insist to follow the mileage meter.

Personal Experience:

1. Bangkok clubs close pretty early about 2am. About 9pm-10pm clubs are getting hot and pack.

2. Just as usual, whenever you hoop into a cab or any form of public transportation in Thailand, NEVER EVER LISTEN TO THE DRIVER'S RECOMMENDATION.

I visited RCA twice, both times the taxi drivers tried to persuade me to wtfbbqisthat Hollywood and Spicy. These are the typical tuk-tuk/taxi drivers' scams -

"RCA no good, small small. Hollywood big big",

"RCA close very very early, I bring you to Spicy, Spicy open till 4am.", etc etc.

Do not even leak out you curiosity, otherwise these heartless cold blooded drivers will just fetch you straight to these god-knows-wtf-are-these places.

3. Bangkok clubs are unfair, cover charge is only applicable to foreigners - which clearly stated at the entrance. You may either pretend as a local (which I have no idea how), or grab a local friend to tag you along.

The cover charge is reasonable though. 200baht/pax at Route 66 where I went both party nights in Bangkok. Opening a Black Label bottle there is ridiculously cheap about 1800baht. So cheap you can't help must open bottle right? Then you'll know why...

Because their mixers (they serve Coke in the very old school glass bottle okie), even if it's water or Soda (in pitcher), and ice as well - these are all charged upon purchase of per bottle/pitcher/bucket basis, each 60baht.

4. Route 66 plays Rn'B (it rocks!), mostly 20-30-ish Thais or a few groups of foreigners (ok that's included me).

5. I miss RCA... T______T

Sharon, Neville, Doris, our two Thai local clubbing guides and wantik.

  "Foreigners" x local.

Route 66 - the glass club. FML I shall not forget to snap a photo of the stunning exterior lor.

We emptied a bottle of Red Label wth.

For some reason Red Label is so apparently a lot more popular over Black Label among the locals.

 

Then, we had a very very nicey after club supper.

SteamboatSeafood Steamboat on the street outside of our hotel. I love it. p.s: the soup is rather sweet base than salty.
