Bangkok Vacation – what we ate

Day 1 food: KFC 🙂 Yes, you heard it right, KFC. it was 5pm when we got to settle down in our hotel room. We headed downstairs to try to do a little shopping at Platinum Mall but decided to take a snack first.  KFC was right in front of me which made me crave for their zinger. The line was so long so I had dessert first. Got a banana chocolate crepe at one of the food stalls. You’ll need to buy/load a platinum food court card to be able to purchase any food/drink.  If you don’t finish your credit, just return the card and they’ll give you the remaining balance.  

 

We only got to go around for less than 2 hours coz the stores close early.  Day 1 dinner was at 830pm.  Too tired to go far, we ended up at Mcdonald’s below our hotel. They din’t have rice and chicken, but had something better..but oh so spicy! 🙂   Check out the chart as to how many calories each of their products have…you wouldn’t want to eat in Mcdonald’s that often anymore!
Buffet Breakfast at the hotel. Filling up for a long day ahead! They had enough food choices for us.  Interiors were relaxing and staff was very accommodating.  I always start off with eggs and bacon.
After a few hours going around Platinum Mall, we had lunch. Trying to look for authentic Thai food, we ended up eating Japanese food in the food court.
Latter part of our day was spent going to the high end malls like Gaysorn and Emporium. Our last stop was the food court of Emporium mall which had A LOT of restaurants food stalls. I was able to find my first Thai meal. But sad to say, it did not taste good at all!
Paid too much for crappy food at Thai Peppery.  Note to self: NEVER eat here again! 
My friend Fides had fish, and I had what I was craving for the whole day..Bagoong rice/Rice with shrimp paste.  It did not meet half of my expectations.

 

My breakfast for Day 4!  and last picture was our food in the plane going home.

 

Day 4 breakfast continued 🙂

 

Time to go home! See how spacious their airport is compared to ours? sad 😦 ….. what’s more sad during this time was that we weren’t able to get our tax refund!!! This Thai girl behind the Tax Refund Counter misinformed us. She tells us to go straight inside and get our refund there. She didn’t say that our papers had to be stamped before security check! We couldn’t go back out, so no refund for us! Make sure to have your papers stamped before going through security or else you’d be so pissed at yourself! 😛

 

Here’s what I usually have in my tote bag when traveling:  Wallet, Blackberry, iPod, petroleum jelly, lip balm, wipes, facial tissue, alcohol, extra clips/ponytails, small zipper bag for passport & other docs, 2 pens, shades, and in the purple plastic bag was the laptop I bought (which was supposed to be 10k cheaper including the tax refund!) to hide it from customs 🙂
