The start of my Bangkok travelogue

Date: 22/12/17-25/12/17
It was quite a last minute decision.

We booked the flight tickets and hotels only about a month before the said date.
So, flight tickets cost a bomb actually, plus it was a public holiday weekend.

But hubby said never mind, once a while, LOL! xD

So, this is our first and only flight in 2017.

Hopefully this year, we get to fly also, haha! (Hope you are reading this hubby ^^)

Booked a van to fetch us to the airport~

Jalan jalan at KLIA2 before boarding~

Can't you pose properly Toby?

 This trip, 4 adults and 4 kids (2 families of 4), which to me is very manageable. Too many in a group, eat up a lot of time for waiting~
Too few, not that merry, haha~

Filled up our tummy at the food court before boarding, cause our flight did not include meals.

I guess this is a mandatory shot for anyone who travels on board, haha!!

It was an afternoon flight, and very sunny, perfect for a nap!

Didi Toby was quite well behaved, fell asleep shortly after take off, and I woke him up upon arriving at Bangkok.
And for the trip back to KL, he fell asleep even before take off, too tired la! xD

Korkor lagi easy to handle, as he is big enough to listen to us.
He also fell asleep during both flights.
Must praised them for behaving, did not give daddy and mummy headaches... hehe! (This is only their second time traveling with plane) 

We reached DMK airport Bangkok about 3pm. 
And checked into hotel after an hour.

Stayed at Pakdee hotel which located strategically at Pratunam.
Well, room is small for a family of 4, but just for 3 nights, ok la...
My idea was to save up on hotel, so that we can spend more on shopping/eating. 

Actually most of the budget hotels were fully booked by the time I book, so we settled with this.

I searched in airbnb too but most of the hotels/apartments are slightly farther from city area.
With 4 kids along, it's quite difficult and inconvenient.

So in the end, we all agreed to squeeze stay at Pakdee =)

Service is quite ok, one of the receptionist is quite helpful. 
But actually the thing we like the most about this hotel is the location, haha!
Just opposite Platinum Mall, and near Pratunam market, and about 10 mins walk from BTS. 

Breakfast included, but not many choices.

The one and only lift in the hotel xD

The lobby is a nice place for the kids, cause of these big fluffy dolls!

Good for selfie too haha!

We hang around nearby on the first day, since everyone were quite tired.

Look at Aden, he was tired of walking. 
Oh boy, it was only the first night!!

It was the Christmas weekend when we arrived so there were lots of Christmas decors everywhere!
This one is in front of Platinum Mall. 

That's all for day 1. 

We visited Chocolate Ville and Ocean World the next 2 days, shall blog about them soon!! =)


  1. My girl used to do that too whenever we travelled when she was little - would sleep all the way. Sure made travelling easy, so hassle free!

    1. Good that they sleep all the way, no fuss no mess!

  2. Location is the key. So having a location that is near shopping malls is very good. Toby and Aden look so obedient in the photos.

    1. Yep, especially if you are traveling with young children.

  3. So nice!! I love going to Thailand.. shopping, massage and Food!!

  4. Your photos are so cute, lovely and fun. I dare not book flights at last minutes esp to Japan or China which needs a year in advance to get cheap tickets. Uncle TM damn poor la. Lol
    I realised you guys had long journey from home to catch flight from KL. More fun and adventurous!

    1. Actually of course it's advisable to book in advance la! Unless no choice....

  5. It is a smart choice to book hotel near the Pratunam area

    1. My trip to Bangkok also costed a bomb as it was during the peak period of December school holidays

    2. Yes, I guess most flights are expensive throughout December.

  6. Fun for the boys to fly and enjoy in Bangkok.

    Yup. To more family holiday this year. ^^

    1. Yes, they get to shop and sight seeing too!

  7. Hotel location is indeed a priority when choosing a place to stay. Good idea of saving up on the hotel too.

    1. I agree, especially if tagging kids along.

  8. What a fun holiday with your family!

  9. I also stayed at Pratunam area during my last trip, opposite Platinum Mall as well but the location is convenient for shopping but quite a distance from BTS by walking.

    1. Haha, 我们福建人说,有一好没二好啦!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
