Bangkok seems so long ago now, but everytime I go through the pictures, I can't help but smile to myself. Its very rare for my family to find time to go on vacations together but this year, I insisted to organize one and it was one of the best family trips we've had in a long long time.
Hotel was fab! Don't get me started with the hotel beds, it was luxurious.
For Buttercream Bakery:
Cupcakes everywhere and the shops are soooo cute! I didn't try any of them cause I knew they wouldn't be as good as Buttercream. You have spoilt my taste buds.
This Secret Garden is so so cute. It was in the middle of the mall below our hotel. Everyday I'd walk past with a full stomach, wishing I hadn't had that much to eat so I could fit in a cake or two. On our last day, I finally went down for tea, will post up what I had in part 2.
This is another cafe, an organic cafe. It had a very vintage feel to it, they had special coffee blends and tea and a store next to it where they sold random stuff like scarves, pillows, bags... all hand-made. I wish there were cafes like these back when I was in high school, it's definitely a place you can study in. I didn't get to try it out, there were too many shops surrounding this coffee shop, could not fight the temptations.
Food in thailand - AH-MA-ZING.
Bangkok is filled with night markets, and I was so excited to find out that there was one close by to our hotel. A visit was a must...
Butt pants!! LOL
Sea of Fake Shoes.
Out of no where, a stall selling Krispy Kreme! There were Krispy Kreme everywhere in Bangkok, I didn't quite understand why they were selling these at the markets. I didn't dare to try.
One of the highlights of my trip was when we visited the traditional temples. I have always wanted to visit one, and it was better than in photos. Everything was so golden, colorful and sacred.
The statues were beautifully sculpted. This particular temple was called the 'Four-faced temple', the God has 4 faces so he? can see it all (I heard).
Elephants are sacred in Thailand, so there were statues everywhere. I wanted the baby ones to bring back to Hong Kong. They're so prettty!
These ladies sang and prayed for hours. I love the costumes and the pointy gold fingernails they had on.
Madre and I
This woman was selling cages of little birds by the temple, I then found out that it was a form of good deed, to purchase these birds and set them free at the temple.
There's just too many photos for one post. Will post up the food and fun in part 2.
Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend.
