Exactly one month since I’ve last updated this space. So I’ve been away from Singapore for approx a month, from Bangkok to Taiwan.
This Bangkok trip was a really spontaneous one. It started when we had Samba prac as usual, and Zhiyu was discussing with me about going overseas together, so we decided to make it a Surdo trip. Everyone was really steady, they said “YES” and the decision was made all in a day. Because I dont want people to backout and I wanted to get cheap deals for trip, I immediately went to book the flights/accomm. So yes, thats the trick guys. You have to make fast decision and act quickly so group trips like this will work.
My first meal in Bangkok is always at Platinum Fashion Mall.
The girls bought gifts for our surdo hunks hehh.
Adventurous boys + Giselle had crickets for snacks. Ew. They said there was a “Baygon” aftertaste. Double ew.
Day 2, we met this random Thai aunty who guided us and hailed cheap tuktuk for us. She said she treated us(the girls) like daughters hahaha.
Ezra tempted by the MAGNUM cafe
But eventually settled with roadside coconut icecream
Phad Thai!!!! Something you can never get sick of.
Day 3. This is our hotel btw, it’s a really new hotel, opened just this April and the service was good! Could still smell the fresh paint on the walls.
We head over to Terminal 21! m in love with this building because it’s designed to fit many world famous cities under one roof, such as London, Japan etc. Even the restrooms are different in each level.
Caught sinning. But this prata thing is SO FREAKING GOOD. One serving is not enough.
A magnum each before we embarked on our 100minutes walk to Chinatown!
Finally here!! This awesome seafood restaurant recommended by my cuz. It’s called T&K Seafood Restaurant, which sells really cheap and fresh seafood dishes. We were too hungry so we didn’t capture much foodporn.
Day 4!!! Blazing hot sun day at Chatuchak!
Met Justin (our surdo senior there). He came with Deb
Oh hyessss. MASSAGE ALMOST EVERYDAY. Tried both full body and foot massage. I must say the full body is still the best (even though it felt like the masseuse is wrestling w me), the foot one is too itchy for me lolol.
Last day at Bangkok we did some last minute shopping at Platinum!!!! Bought tuna and corn pies at Macs. I like to try different Mac pies from different country, because they normally serve different kinds of pies apart from apple pies. Taro pies from Sg macs sucks btw.
Last but not least, Surdo 4!
Just in case you’re wondering, Surdo 1-4 represents the instruments that we play. All are surdo (drums) but they differ in sizes, with one being the biggest and 4 the smallest.
HOME SWEET HOME.
Can’t wait to see the samba people later for prac. I miss my purple liners!!
