Sightseeing@Bangkok


Chinatown. Lots of jewellery shops and shops selling birds nest... the jewellery shops like to show their wares hanging on the walls, not sure why....and the gold necklace looks pretty thick...like dog chains...LOL


Famous Tuk Tuk...motorized 3 wheeler. But i would prefer a Toyota Corolla Altis taxi any time over this...the Bangkok air pollution is not to be reckon with...my face turn coarse just after 5 days there... blame it on my lack of facial protection :P  Somemore the tuk tuk are not cheap. Ride it just for the experience, if u like.

 
Every morning u can see loads of stalls by the roadside selling breakfast, ranging from fruits to popiah to fried hotdog/meatballs/burgers etc. Very convenient and popular among the office workers.


Students crossing the busy Bangkok road. Is this their formal wear and style? How come all with braided hair? Must be all the rage in the schools nowadays LOL


Water transport, more specifically rivers plays an important role in public transport in Bangkok. People there still uses boats to travel to work at this day and age surprisingly! Maybe because there is no traffic lights and jams? :P


Very nice light deco on sale at Suan Lum Night Bazaar....we bought couple of this :) Jealous leh? hahaha...


So much of artsy deco can be found here... its a treasure trove of interior deco!


Very nice indeed....but how to bring back to malaysia leh?


Super cute clocks @ Suan Lum. But pretty expensive too...My friend was dying to get one...Hope u have already recovered from your withdrawal symptoms lah....LOL


Clocks for people who need to travel different places always?

A Protong advertisement found at a BTS station. In this land of Toyotas and Hondas, how does Protong compete leh? Quality? Pricing? Customer service? Brand name? Ahem... even Malaysians resort to buying Protong for no other reason than ridiculously high taxes imposed on foreign cars. But once ur in the outside world, who will cover u? In the 5 days we were here, we only saw one protong car. Nuff said.











There is no lack of gay bars and male massage center here. Nightclub with scantily dressed ladies gyrating to the dancing poles also abundant. Didnt take those pics though for fear of personal safety LOL. U see... even when we were just walking on the street, there is already some "salesman" come to approach and promote us the services. What u think will happen if i flash my camera there? LOL. Luckily my friend kena the most from these salesman. "Do i really look like a Hamsap (horny) man?" he ask. "well...judging from the crowd enticing u, u must really look like one!" i said. LOL....I didnt get asked alot, but mainly because i was walking at the back i guess.... using him as my shield :P


Took this pic near Platinum Mall...The girl slipping her hand on her beau...and the beau slipping his hand on his beau....Well....actually just got the angle accidently. Hehe...


I cant seem to remember why i took this pic in the first place.....somewhere around the floating market.







SEE that? Even BMW is promoting my site on their office tower.... Oh... thank you so much!! If they sponsor me a car would be even better :P

water transport is the cheapest transport, and i think it's still popular in many places..
