The Terrace Restaurant And Buddhi Belly @ Central World, Bangkok

Posted by : foongpc | Wednesday, September 28, 2016 | Published in


After leaving HuaLamphong Station, my friend and I went to Pratunam where we did some shopping.  I wanted to buy a cap there but did not find one that I like.

We then ended back at Central World shopping mall which we went the day before. I managed to find a cap that I like at this more upscale Zen Department Store. Sorry, no photo of my new cap.

I think all the shopping made us hungry so we had an early dinner at The Terrace Restaurant in Central World. I had this Pork Loin Steak with green curry sauce served with fried Sang yod rice and butter. Sang yod rice is a type of healthy rice grown in Phatthalung province.

My friend ate Pad Thai (I did not take any picture of it).

After that, we just walked around the shopping mall. I thought the decoration at this part of the mall was interesting.

Gigantic floating book!

This is the SF World Cinema on the 7th floor of the mall, if I am not mistaken.

No, we did not go and watch any movies there. I don't fancy watching movies when I travel.

This is an interesting art piece.

We spotted the popular premium frozen yogurt store Buddhi Belly and decided to get ourselves some dessert.

Colorful decorations on the counter tops.

We chose original with toppings of mango, strawberry and pineapple.

That's medium size cup and costs us about 100 baht.

It was yummy! I should have ordered a whole cup for myself. Lol.

Words written on the cup explain most of it so I do not have to describe anything.

After finishing the yogurt, we walked around some more. It would be my last night in Bangkok. We would be leaving the next day, so I wanted to explore the mall a bit more.

Took some more pictures.

I like the decoration here.

I think we only left when the mall was about to close. Lol. It was a good third day in Bangkok.


A Visit To Hualamphong Station In Bangkok

I did not plan to visit the Hualamphong Station also known as Bangkok Railway Station but you will soon learn why I ended up there.

OK, we are back at Day 3 of my Bangkok trip back in 2014. Sorry for the outdated post but I am doing my best to complete blogging about this trip.

To refresh your memory, my friend and I started out Day 3 with a visit to Wat Ratchabophit before going on a search for the famous Nuttaporn Ice Cream.

Right after that, we took a tuk tuk to Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall.

This tuk tuk driver drove so fast that my cap flew off halfway and landed on the road behind us. I did not manage to retrieve it so I had to say goodbye to my cap! It was a bit nostalgic for me as that cap had been with me for my past trips. Oh well, there was no point getting upset over it and I did buy a new cap later at the shopping mall. Haha!

Unfortunately for us, the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall was closed that day, most likely due to the ongoing political rally in Bangkok at that time. However, I did manage to capture a few photos of the aftermath of the protest rally which happened a few days before. Check out the photos HERE.

After walking around for some time, we flagged down a taxi to take us to the Hualamphong MRT Station. But since we were there, I decided to visit the Hualamphong Railway Station nearby.

Also known as Krungthep Station, this railway station is the main railway station in Bangkok and serves over 130 trains (according to Wikipedia).

There were shops and eateries on both floors of the station.

Satisfied that I had visited this famous train station, we made our move.

Where did we go next? We were getting quite hungry, so it's definitely a place to eat!


Window Shopping At Siam Paragon, Siam Center And Central World In Bangkok

Posted by : foongpc | Wednesday, September 7, 2016 | Published in


My apologies for the long break from blogging but now I am back! My blog posts are so outdated I am actually blogging about my Bangkok trip back in 2014! I really hope you don't mind. Haha!

Anyway, it's Day 2 of my Bangkok trip in February 2014 and just to refresh you, here are some of the highlights of that day.

Pork Satay Rice @ Cafe Boran Hat Yai
Mont Nom Sod @ MBK Centre
After You Dessert Cafe @ Silom Complex

After going our separate ways in the afternoon, my friend and I decided to meet up again in the evening at Siam Paragon, a famous shopping mall in Bangkok.

I love the view of the shopping mall at night with all the lights and waterfall. My friend did some real shopping while I only did window shopping. Lol.

 photo P1250332_zpsyl8zisyu.jpg

I saw some red horses near the entrance of the mall.

 photo P1250341_zpsoaanxsfm.jpg

2014 was the Year of the Horse, according to the Chinese zodiac. It was just two weeks after Chinese New Year, so I guess the horses were part of the Chinese New Year decoration.

 photo P1250340_zpsvomxdpc1.jpg

It's good that the mall had not taken down the horses otherwise I wouldn't have the opportunity to see them.

 photo P1250338_zpsnuxkmbcu.jpg

Aren't they beautiful?

 photo P1250335_zpsjjcd7cpk.jpg

Love these horses! And the water reflection. So artistic.

 photo P1250334_zpscw52u6lk.jpg

We then walked over to Siam Center next door. Yes, not many people around. I guess it was a weekday, maybe?

 photo P1250333_zpsl53v58ck.jpg

Inside Siam Center, we passed by Mr Jones' Orphanage, a famous dessert cafe that has lots of teddy bears and soft toys as decoration. Unfortunately, we did not try the cakes and dessert there. The timing just wasn't right. Maybe I will visit it next time I go Bangkok.

At the time of my visit, Line toys were the rage in Bangkok. These toys and merchandise were not yet available in Malaysia so I was really tempted to buy them!

 photo P1250322_zpsm5kjlgl6.jpg

That's Cony, with two different expressions.

 photo P1250321_zpszt1uppy8.jpg

And Brown. I like Brown. But at 1,300 baht? I think I better spend my money on food instead. Hahaha!

 photo P1250320_zpsrg6j0bpp.jpg

Plush doll heads.

 photo P1250319_zps1nwuctdp.jpg

These are cute. Should I just grab one? ...... Don't think so.

 photo P1250316_zpsk4kddp0g.jpg

Maybe socks are more useful? ...... Nah. Lol!

 photo P1250323_zpsrjqmfbef.jpg

So after leisurely browsing around Siam Center, we decided to walk back to Siam Paragon to search for something to eat. You might be wondering - how come we did not eat at Mr Jones' Orphanage earlier? Well, we needed real food, not cakes and dessert. Lol.

 photo P1250331_zps2280lxbw.jpg

As it turned out, we did not eat at Siam Paragon. Instead, we walked all the way over to Central World nearby and dined at Black Canyon Coffee.

 photo P1250345_zpsmihnrt8e.jpg

You see, Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and Central World are all in close proximity to each other, so it's really no problem walking from one mall to the other. I was so glad they had the malls all lined up in such a way. Thank you Bangkok, for being so brilliant!

 photo P1250346_zpsdnaslrrd.jpg

I had a cup of hot tea latte with biscuits. Not bad!

And a plate of tom yum noodles. It was delicious, but very spicy!

 photo P1250351_zpsrgxukg9u.jpg

I think I forgot to take photos of what my friend ate because I just could not find those photos. Well, it had been 2 years. Things disappear sometimes, don't they? Haha! I really should try and be more updated in my blogging from now on! :)
