Short trip to Hatyai

Sawadeeka from all of us! ;))

For some of you, you may recognize Yannie and Yvonne in the picture. 

Yep, I went for a short trip to Hatyai with my ex colleagues (and their kids) last weekend. I was surprised by Yvonne's whatsapp asking me if I'm interested to join them to Hatyai. Was hesitating a bit in the beginning cause of Aden, but thank God that MIL is willing to look after him while I am away.

So we stayed at Regency Hotel for a night. No photos of the room cause it's very ordinary, nothing to shout about, haha xD

Us inside the tuk tuk!

Weather was scorching hot when we were at Hatyai! But we were thankful that it din't rain at all, trip will become much more inconvenient if it rains, as we needed to walk a lot in Hatyai


Love the night life there, so many things to buy and eat! The crowd was kinda crazy, which is within expectation.... 

Must not forget to take photo with Mr Ronald Macdonald who greet us just at the entrance of Lee Garden Plaza ;)

Hatyai din't change much since I last went there, which was about 3 years ago. So I have no problem shopping on my own there, I can easily recognize the areas~

Hatyai has lots of stalls selling yummy snacks, such as those deep fried stuff, local products, fruits (only RM 2- RM 3 for a big pack of sliced fruits! And their fruits are so sweet!), mango glutinous rice, coconut drinks/ice cream, squid and etc~
It's also a place for shopping of course. Clothes, branded bags, shoes and accessories! 


And when you are tired of the whole day walking.... You can locate a foot massage center easily......

This one cost me just 250 TB (RM 25) for 1 hour, foot and shoulder massage! How cheap!! Plus it's really comfortable I nearly fall asleep, hehe! Best of all, they offer free wifi!

Their seafood is quite fresh and cheap!

And definitely cannot miss the tom yam gung!

Eateries are almost full during weekend, so better go earlier!

Thailand's McDonald is something not to be missed as well! We all craving for its samurai pork burger! They even have different interesting menu, like bacon with egg burger, corn pie, crab stick pie, and McD bubble tea!

I will eat at least one round of Swensen's ice cream whenever I go Thailand. It's so much cheaper (about RM 10.90 per glass) and taste yummier!

Our group photo! Yannie's(lady in yellow) hubby is the only male in our gang, our bodyguard! xD

Just to show some of my shopping loots. Intended to buy more but since I am going on myself, I have no more hands to carry more... Just the mango and pineapple already weigh so much, plus we are taking bus so.......... :(

Must persuade hubby to go next time!! ;)

So, I promise to organize a giveaway so here it is! Just comment something regarding this post with the tagline 'I love Hatyai!', it's that easy! Opens to all Malaysian and Singaporeans. If you are using anonymous account please provide your name! 2 lucky winners will receive something from me. Giveaways ends Monday 28/4 5pm!
Good luck!

      Yes, their McD has lots of different menu! Last time I tried their shrimp burger and it was so good!! Too bad it's seasonal la!

    1. i saw the same photo on FB, at first from Y&Y and then i thought probably you also joined them lor.. and right, this group photo appeared and confirmed my suspicion already.. so ALL LADIES tour, haha, how nice.. but i guess Yannie's loving hubby wasn't too comfortable about all ladies but no man to Hatyai huh?? great to have such a hunky gentleman to look after you all also lah.. but i think he must be bullied a lot right?? hehe, you all sure ask him to be the camera man and also the porter.. haha!! :D

    2. the second photo looks funny!! really can see how TALL Yannie is!! haha.. the first photo still okay because she was standing at a lower step, but when everyone stood on the same level, she looks so outstanding like a mother with all her 11 girls!! but it was nice, all colleagues 相親相愛 and go travel together.. :)

    3. i have been to Hatyai twice only if not mistaken, and the last time i went was more than 10 years close to 20 years ago already.. guess it has changed a lot also, the Lee Garden and Ronald McThai are still there, and there are still a lot of stalls selling all kinds of things.. but probably things increased in price after so many years lah.. RM2-RM3 to get something to snack on, nice right?? yeah, if i were there, will surely go for those fried stuffs and also the mango with sticky rice!! :p

      Delete
    4. hmmmm, so you only bought those "little bit" of stuffs, aiyah, 不能盡興 right?? i remember two times went there, the ladies friends sure want to go to the old market to buy their bra, they say Warcoal is very cheap there!! and so we tag along also, of course we didn't follow them to the bra shops but the guys went around the market to get food stuffs.. lots of things to buy there, especially the snacks!! oh, i think i can get wild inside the market, haha!! i wonder if the market is still there?? have to take tuk-tuk to go one i remember, and still 10-baht per trip per person??

      Delete
    5. also cannot miss the Thai massage lah, haha!! 250 baht for an hour massage is cheap.. hmmm, you used the free wifi there?? but i thought you comfortably fell asleep when the lady was massaging you.. so nice right?? after shopping go massage and after massage go for a nice dinner!! and those dishes, OMG, so delicious lor, i am feeling very hungry now, it's just 4-plus now, still few hours to dinner leh.. @.@"

      Delete
    6. oh, you had the Samurai burger from McThai.. errr, do they have Burger King there?? because i find the BK burger is even nicer, just order any burger and then tell the waiter that you want pork patty instead.. i tried that in Bangkok and since then i so in love with the pork burger in BK, so miss it now lah.. and i told my friend about it, they went to Bangkok and tried the pork burger in BK, they also love it so much, hahaha~~ :D

    7. OMG, thanks for the long comments, haha!
      Yep, just a short trip so one post can summarize all, don't wanna separate into few posts!

      Kekeke, he was the only man in our gang, but actually there's another gang in the same bus, but all are aunties and uncles, it's actually friends of a friend.
      No leh, we din't bully him at all! Just asked him to take that few group photos only, this is not consider as bully ok? :p

      Kakaka, she memang very tall, you seen her before ma!

      Hmm, you should plan a trip to Hatyai la, 20 years wo, I bet it changes a bit liao~

      Wah this one you also know, yes their Wacoal underwear is cheap and worth to buy, but depends on individual also, some of my friends said their quality not so good and not very comfortable to wear.
      Yes, the market is a great place to shop, things are pretty cheap there! Now no more 10 baht la, it's 20 baht already.

      Haha sure use their free wifi! Cause nothing to do, I said I nearly fall asleep but I won't really fall asleep actually, it's too bright! LOL!
      Kekeke, hang in there, almost fong kong already!

      Erm, burger king ar, macam din't see it, anyway I am satisfied enough with McD pork burger!!
