Everyone... this... is BANGKOK.and this is....
STEWIE IN BANGKOK!!!
Some time ago I made a decision to take a quick break from my usual working life and run away to Bangkok with some friends.
I have never been to Bangkok before this. That's right... I've been so many places but I haven't even been to Bangkok which is so damn near Penang!
So this morning before the sun rose, I found myself in a cab on the way to the airport and by 9AM, I was looking out an airplane window to see Bangkok!I arrived with *ahem* and went straight from the airport to lunch with my friends who just flew in from Singapore. Meet James and Sheena.Okay here's the funny thing.
Call it a curse or a blessing but I can't ever take a proper PROPER holiday for some reason.
I just arrived at Bangkok today and I spent half my time following the ladies shopping in malls like this or eating great meals like this steamboat lunch.
And the rest of my time is spent in the hotel room on my laptop getting some work done. I guess I must really love my job though its nice to get a change of environment every now and then.
Speaking of hotel room, we're all staying in this really dodgy place in Bangkok called "Bangla House".No I'm kidding about the Bangla House part but not about the dodgy area.
I'm staying in a fairly dodgy looking area in a boutique hotel but the hotel turned out to be pretty nice and not too expensive.
We were expecting the worst though... I mean heck we weren't exactly going to stay in the Grand Hyatt or something so we didn't know what to expect but half our worries were lifted when we walked into the lobby of the hotel.
Not too shabby at all...The room is pretty nice too.
It's a little bit like a service apartment and it comes fully equipped with a small kitchen and microwave.Okay here's the thing.
Like in every other hotel room I walk into, the first thing I check out is the mini-bar to see all the goodies we have there.This mini-bar had a little surprise for me though.
Two packs of condoms.
Not just ANY CONDOM.... STRAWBERRY-FLAVOURED CONDOMS.
What a pleasant surprise. I was a little disappointed about one thing though. I mean heck.. we're in Thailand... not Cameron Highlands.. if you're gonna have flavoured condoms, you gotta give us some tomyam flavoured ones.
Ish.. anyway... I'm going to bed now everyone. Nanai!!!
