Bangkok - Day 2

Had buffet breakfast at the hotel. There were chicken porridge, cereals, bread & pastries, Fried Rice, fruits, salads, sausage & ham....etc. Great breakfast spread.

Went to Erawan Shrine to pay our respects before taking the BTS(skytrain) to Siam Square. We shopped in Siam Center before going over to Siam Paragon, another new mega shopping mall.

We headed to the supermarket to buy fruits. The fruits were so fresh & beautiful. The fruits in Thailand are so sweet - papayas, watermelons, pomelos, honey oranges, even guavas! We bought a lot.
On my must-buy shopping list, sweet & juicy Thai Pomelos (S$2.35 per pack)!!!

I bought quite a lot of dried fruits. The young Muslim salesgirls who were dressed in black burqa, were so sweet & attentive. They kept plying us with food samples. Everything tasted yummy!

We had a light snack at the cavernous food court. There were so much food stalls. I bought some Vietnamese Pork & Prawn Rice rolls, chicken yakitori, Thai Fried Kway Teow & the must-have Thai Iced Tea.
We took a cab back to the hotel to deposit our bags of purchases before going to Siam Square for a massage.

We girls had an oil massage (500baht, S$21.50), manicure & pedicure (250 baht, S$10.75) . My friends had a foot massage each (300 baht, S$13). Chris had a 2-hour Thai massage (400 baht, S$17.20). Much needed, clean, good relaxation!

It was 7pm when we were done. We had dinner at Ban Khun Mae. It serves traditional Thai cuisine. Such a delicious meal for 4 cost 1129 baht(S$48.50)!

Freshly made salads in full view of diners.
My favourite Spicy Green Mango Salad!

Prawns in Red Curry Sauce - great curry sauce!

Thai Spicy Steamed Snapper Fish - it's wow wow wow!!!

Thai Pineapple Rice

Thai Steamed Seafood Otah

We walked over to Mah Boon Kong for some quick shopping.

I bought my Lap Chok - a delicious & beautiful Thai dessert. 50 pieces for 100 baht (S$4.30)

I bought Khanom Buang for Chris. It is Thai crispy thin pancakes with shredded coconut or egg.

I bought some T-shirts for the kids & Tun. One beautiful cotton T-shirt for S$4.30!

We became birds - cheap cheap cheap!
