shopping in chatucak market, bangkok

sa wa dee ka....... >_<>

as i always say, the world is very small. i never thought that i would meet one of my friend in the air plane and he was going to bangkok for business trip. thanks to him, i had free ride to my hotel. that day was totaly a dramatic day as the hotel was booked by my boss and i was told that all the payment was done. guess what ? the receptionist said no payment was done and credit card details was taken just to comfirm the room reservation. so, i sent a message to my superior and no response from them. being a extremly thrifty person, i only messaged them and dint make a call, because calling back to malaysia will cost me RM 3/ min.

wait and wait..... and still waiting for their reply. of course, i will not just sit there and wait.i put my luggage in my friend's hotel room and we out for our very important mission.

heading to chatuchak weekend market!!!

it was a very hot day and with the bad ventilation there, we had heat stress and cant enjoy our shopping to 100%, if not, i think we can shop till we drop. but, at first , we planned to shop till 6 pm, but at about 4 pm, we already felt very tired+ hot+sticky body. so, we went back and rest in the hotel. my friends bought a lot of shirts and it only 80 bath per piece!! very nice shirts and maybe it would cost at least RM15 in malaysia.

thai just loves spice.we can always see a combination of spice /flavoring on the food table

fried rice in JJ market. 25 baht

fried noodle in JJ market. 30 baht

shopping! shopping! we can can anything here. shirts, key chains, lanterns, animal products, food, drinks....... price are reasonable too provided that you bargain.
