Sightseeing@Bangkok part 2



Heard from my friend that this is a popular massage center "The Prime". We didnt went in though...Anyone been here before?


A granny feeding pigeons just outside the Grand Palace. The birds were flocking to her like bees to flowers. Hopefully the birds are free of influenza germs :P


The Grand Palace. Lots of gold paints around. Is this because Thai King likes gold colour? Not my niche. I never like visiting places of religions and palaces. Just been there, done that kind of thing.


A pigeon admiring a blooming lotus in the Grand Palace...


Ok...enough of gold colour already... my eyes are sore now. This is one of the newer malls in Bangkok...central world. Something like The Gardens that cater to the high fashion crowd mostly. And of course, if u have deep pockets wouldn't hurt either :D


This is where poor people like me do their shopping. Platinum fashion mall. Loads and loads of small boutique stores selling eastern and western style apparels, undies, ballgowns etc... Affordable prices, choices aplenty. Warning! Never come here with the girls. The girls will never come out once they are inside. Also due to the fact that its really a MAZE in there. Easily get lost :P
No wonder Thai people always get to wear trendy clothes! The clothes are so nice and cheaper than here..


A weird looking bag on sale. Looks like Pagolin right?


More unique bags on parade. Im sure kids will love them, especially the spiky ones. Suit their hairstyle :P


Welcome to Gaysorn shopping centre! Your one stop for gays, queers, PLUs, rainbow community...But the fact is, it has nothing to do with gay at all.


We actually come to Platinum twice because there is just too much to see :P This is the second day early morning when we see dozens and dozens of Thai girls like this carrying their large trolley bags scouting around for deals. Initially i thought these girls are shopaholics in buying frenzy. But more likely, they are scouting goods for their stalls in other bazaars eg. SuanLum, Chatuchak etc. Because Platinum is also a wholesale distribution centre for apparels. Obviously the prices is cheapest here :D


Sailormoon dresses also available here leh...any takers? Cosplayers? Hehe...


Shirts....undies...and more undies...


The shopping crowd. The Thai lady. The trolley bag again...


Its shopping frenzy! What are you waiting for? Just grab...grab...and grab....


Walk until legs go numb already... Eat pork burger at McD, MBK mall. Spotted this cute caucasian. Not sure what is he doing... Ang gu gu... oh so damn cute :P

Ya, Platinum Mall is a good place to shop, they will give you wholesale price if you buy 3 items and above. Girls will definitely get crazy there, hehe.

Usually folks go over to Thailand to stock up on clothes - hence the cheap trolley bags :) Come with nothing and beli baju over there!
