Bangkok Day 4: Chatuchak & Siam Square

Finally my lastpost about Bangkok ! We were in such a rush on our last day, that I didn't get to take many pictures. It was so exhausting because we still had so many things to do. I was also freaking out because I didn't have a lot of cash left.

 My ootd that day. A new shirt I bought at Contemporary Store, Chatuchak the day before, the new hat, Wephobia pants and Vans.

 Because we didn't have time to the days before, L really wanted to have some coffee. I'm not a fan of coffee but the interior was nice. Most coffee shops in BKK are quite refined design-wise ! From interior to branding, it never feels undone.

After that we went to Chatuchak again and got the rest of our stuff. There was no atm of which i knew of so I couldn't buy everything I wanted : (  this time I was able to lead myself through the Chatuchak maze a lot more confident and was able to find all shops that I was looking for. We couldn't stay much longer because we still had to go to Platinum to get more of my 95K bags which I sold on insta !

 On the way to Platinum I decided that I realllyyyy had to try Som Tam or something (google papaya salad siam square lol) ! I read about it on every blog that the papaya salad was supposed to be really good so I had to tryyyy !!! So before we went to Chatuchak on Sunday we passed by here. Had to wait abt 15 minutes (seems to be always crowded) and for that the food disappointed me a little. It was good but not outstanding. Even Tuk Tuk's papaya salad is much better : ( we had the fish with herbs nd shit and papaya salad with dried prawns. I even had better papaya salad in Munich : O ! And it was so spicy i could barely eat as well.      Took a cab to Platinum and even though the distance wasn't look it took forever thanks to Bangkok's traffic. I'm so surprised noone has ever complained about this before ? I found it sooo annoying D: ! Found a phone on the cab and gave it back of course. Losing a phone is horrible : ( Picked up my 95K bags and we were fully packed but decided to return to Siam, because I wanted to continue discovering !

 We had dinner at White Flower Factory on the 2nd or 3rd floor of Siam Square 1, the building opposite Siam Paragon ! I wanted to try it because the interior looked nice and it was crowded. The atmosphere was great ! Chic, subtle thanks to dimned lights and Just very modern and urban. My thang ! I worked in gastronomy for years, I care about stuff like the freshness of flowers and the arrangement of tables.

 We had a window seat in the back of the restaurant and had a view on the street and skytrain station. Seriously the atmosphere was great for a date !!!

 We ate fluffy catfish with spicy mango salad (Tuk Tuk's in Saigon is soooo much better), Chicken Curry (not so nice) and salmon tartar which was sooooo nice and huge for a starter and only 100K!!! Seriously eating in Bangkok is not expensive at alll, even when you go to a little fancier places like this one !

 Walked around a little afterwards and satisfied my urge to see more of Siam square. After that finally after a really long day we went back to the hotel by skytrain.... Cos I hate bargaining still haha.

 The next morning I experienced Bangkok from it's worst side: rain AND traffic jam ! Ohemgee ! Traffic was soooo bad snd streets were flooded ! So weird how central Bangkok is somehow so fancy and yet so not. It took us almost one hour to the airport and our luggage was overweight and we also had lots of small bags too cos we forgot to buy a bigger suitcase. Luckily you can get shipping cardboard boxes at the airport's post office and we put everything inside there. We couldn't pay per kg but vietjetair made us pay for another 20kg and over 1000 Baht : (  Then we flew back, I slept and then went straight to the store. So sleepy now to continue. Arghhhh.
