Bangkok Day 1-3 - Husky Cafe & Asiatique Riverfront

16:28Lindsay Voitton



Reached the airport at 6.30 for our 7.20 flight.
Grabbed a quick breakfast and rushed onto the plane.
I swear our time management really need to improve!


"Bye Singapore!"

It was my first time being in Bangkok and it was amazing! 
(except for getting lost and walking under the scorching sun)

But THANK GOD for unlimited data for google mapping - that we purchased immediately after we touched down Suvarnabhumi Airport at 8am, BKK time. Bought our first Thai Milk Tea and went for our cab (which was a very, i repeat.. VERY bad idea)
30 mins in Bangkok and we were already coned hahah
800 Baht for a 20 mins ride to Pratunam? No thanks!! 
Note to self: Take the Airport Rail link which costs like idk.. 145 baht? 



We stayed in Hotel De Bangkok which was the best choice ever! Extremely clean & new, amazing room service, bathtub included and there's a balcony. We actually booked another hotel which was way more expensive but got all these for only $48 a night, which I saw on Groupon, and made the switch the last minute. 
One thing I love about this hotel is that there's a huge space outside the lobby door as seen in the photo, to chill or what not. So , I actually feel safe once I step into this area, unlike the others where you see the busy road once u step out the hotel.

Also, they have a designated taxi driver outside the gate-- who always asks us where are we going so he can drive us. Which is really cool! Just that it gets quite annoying after a few days as we have to politely decline all the time after haggling his overpriced offer. :( 

Headed to Vanilla Cafe at Ekkamai for dinner





Calamari & Olives-- BOMB! <3


Our meh matcha mint latte.
No taste at all 





Headed to Platinum area for more food and some shopping!
Totally loving the vibe of this place.. I mean CHECK OUT THEIR FOOD VAN!
And that guy wearing the floral crown. Coachella much!?



Saw quite a few people queuing for this so thought we should try it out!




Them giant prawns tho!!


Got some drinks, headed back to the hotel to recharge and get ready for..
Day 2!


Pantip Plaza A&W for a quick brunch and off to
Dream World!





Not as pretty compared to USS cuz it's quite run down and most of the rides are not fun at all.
But the freaking Tornado Ride was extremely TORMENTING!! I've never cried during any rides before T_T
Ps: my Bf and I only sits on the Cyclon Ride and the Mummy (for some aircon) when we are at USS so you know how much we LOVE the thrill of roller coasters.
But this Tornado Ride.. Oh gosh.. Never again hahah!!


Freshly Cut potato chips!! So tasty.
Huge makeupless face coming through :P #sorrynotsorry


Pimped our ride.




Cabbed back to our hotel to wash up and rest.
Too tired to eat out, so called for room service and had our own 'little' dinner in our balcony



Met Gina and Kaiwen about 9pm-ish and squeezed in 1 single tuktuk. Yes all 5 of us haha
Looked for Eileen and her bf and off for some shopping at Siam Night Market




Day 3: Lunch at our hotel.
Ps: the Pineapple Rice was AMAZING



Went back to Ekkamai Area for a Tea Break at Patisserie Rosie.







Got our Cranberry Smoothie! 

Rushed off to Husky Cafe for their last slot at 6pm.
We had to fill in a form and was then given 2 coupons which entitles us to 1 Cake and 1 Drink.




I got a mocha latte and he got an ice chocolate.
 Mines a little too rich and thick but it kept me going through the evening since we woke up quite early.





We were looking at the normal cakes in the chiller until they showed us the freezer full of ICE CREAM CAKES! Duh we got to have them instead.
Immediately went for this Caramel Mocha with crushed hazelnuts at the top (i think)
LOVE!!





At first I was abit skeptical about this Husky cafe.
I mean.. keeping about 20 huskies together in the humid weather in Thailand!? Sounds like torture.
But when I watched this introduction video, it 100% changed my mindset.

All huskies are kept and pampered in an airconditioned area and are let out to play every 2 hours when customers arrive.
Also they are fed and groomed very well, which explains their silky coat of fur and fat bellies, and are loved by each and every owner of the cafe!


See what I meant!! 
They love to go to them more than us HAHA





This one sleeps all day err day.


My bf LOVES Huskies!
 Too bad we are not gonna get one unless we are living somewhere else other than Singapore. 
But in the mean time, we get to hug and touch them for 20 mins that day.







Photo with our fav husky! 
Actually cuz it's the only one that is super chill (and sleepy) and lets us snap photos with him haha.
And look at those 2 huskies at the back probably having a conversation with each other.

Headed out to the main road when we saw a row of road side stalls that smells amazing.
Since they are already starving, we stopped by this stall to get some noodles before heading out to Asiatique.


It started raining heavily once we sat down and their main goal was to keep their customers dry by opening up the umbrellas and clipping up more plastic to extend the shelter.
Doing all these without caring that they are standing cold under the heavy rain with all the roads flooded with water.

Once they took care of the customers, they continued cooking for us with a huge smile on their faces.
<3 <3



Made with so much love T_T
Won't forget this simple yet delicious meal haha


Train ride!



Caught the 10.30pm boat to Asiatique Riverfront.
Planned to meet up with the rest for supper since they were already there earlier.
But we only had about 45 mins to catch the last boat back so we decided to roam around for awhile


Love the atmosphere!!
It's like our Clarke Quay, but WAY more beautiful.
Definitely coming here again.. probably at like 5pm when it's not this dark and crowded haha






When in Thailand, we ONLY drink Thai Milk Tea lolol


Super cute bar soaps made from different fruits and flowers!





End of Day 3!
