[SHINI IN THAILAND] : Day 1 @ Bangkok



Sawadeeka  Finally I blogged about my 6D5N Thailand Trip!! I knew many sweeties have been waiting this for so long, sorry for the delay ya. (Too many photo need to arrange) So last month, I was received a special message for the PR saying that I have been invited to join a sponsored trip to Thailand. I was so surprise and excited at the same time because this is consider my very first time of sponsored trip. So of course I said YES! Well well, I won't be selfish person. I actually ask him whether they allow me to bring 1 more friend to go and he said can. Yippee~ So I decided to bring Cindy along too. I actually make many new friends during this trip and all are them are so friendly!! We still keep in touch even we back to Malaysia. I really had a lot of fun and blast with them during this trip.  =D Thanks for brought us together!


In case you don't know, I'm a Ipoh mali. Basically I went to Hatyai @ Thailand for like 5th times because Ipohian only need a border pass instead of passport when we go to Hatyai. However, for Bangkok, I only manage to visit twice only. Therefore, this is my 3rd time to pay a visit. Frankly, most of the places I went for this trip was I never visit before. So, remember to stay tuned at every single post of them ya. =)


Early in the morning, Cindy and me was chilling at McDonald @ KLIA while waiting for others.


Do you like my latest hair colour? Hair done by Frank Salon


Met JQ here. Glad she going along with us too because she help me take a lot of nice photos.




Thai Airways was our pleasant flight from KL all the way to Bangkok. This is my first time to take Thai Airways and I feel satisfied because their foods was good, services was friendly and safe flight. LOL~  My family and friends was kinda worry about my safety during that moment because #MH17 tragedy just happened few days before I went to Bangkok.



Awww~  Did you spot the snowflake? When I uploaded this photo on Facebook, some sweeties asking when there's some snowflake even I fly to Thailand. I guess before that they fly to snowing country, that's why some snowflake stuck at the window. =)  Seriously, I miss the snowflake when I was travel to
Hokkaido. Japan is the BEST!


When we reach the Thai Airport, I quickly ask our tour guide where to buy our sim card because I need to contact my mum just to inform I'm safe and I need to online. (Can't live without Internet!) So there are 2 telco store which are Happy and Dtac. Actually their price are similar but because Happy got quite many queuing, so eventually we choose Dtac. I personally choose the cheapest package - 299 THB (RM29.9+) which it's provided 1.5gb unlimited internet for 7 days. Their package was really affordable compare to other country.

Yup, Our hotel was Grand Mercure Fortune Hotel Bangkok. A little tips here, if you at other place and you want to back hotel through cab, remember mentioned 'Fortune Hotel' instead of Grand Mercure because they recognize the fortune word.

Wow~  The Fujifilm Instant Camera was really pretty. They even provide variety choice of sticker for you.




Can you guys guess what is this shop selling? Nope, they are not selling pork here. They actually selling mixed rice (杂饭)  So cute right?


Their clutch was so pretty and snazzy. Wish to buy 1 but they actually cost 1000 THB - 2000 THB (RM100+ - RM200+) Not really worth for my opinion because it's non branded anyway.


Strongly recommend this shop to you guys!! The designer was young and friendly! They selling all white colour collar shirt here. Their quality is nice and they only cost 200 THB (RM20) YES! All of them are the same price and free size. I bought 2 from them.

How can you not try macaroon! You must try their Thai Tea flavour macaroon because you can't find this flavour at other places.

After dinner, we heading to watch Muay Thai Show. Frankly, this was my first time for watching this. Normally I went to Thailand just to watch the 'Ah Gua (Ladyboy)' Show.



It was really nice because they actually have many different storyline, some of scene are hilarious some of scene are serious case. They also explain to you details about their move, techniques and history etc. The duration of the show was like 1 hours+. Definitely worth to watch.

After finished the show, me, Cindy and JQ decided to take a walk. We actually plan to go night market but we forgot they didn't open because it was Monday. >,<

So we bought some wine at 7-Eleven and chilling outside. It taste like Ribena mixed with some wine taste. It's nice and worth to try! If I'm not mistaken, it cost 490 THB(RM4.90)

After back to hotel, I made myself bubble bath.
First day was exhausted. So I go to bed early.
