19 May

Hello all! Are you ready for day 2 post?

Day 2 was a Sunday and Chatuchuk only opens on weekends so here we go for massive shopping! πŸ™‚ For this post, I am only going to post partial sections and things we do.

First up, a picture of our us before leaving.

Moustache watches was the trend then and we got one each. However, I haven’t use it yet but it stop working 😦 Aw.
one thing about shopping in Thailand is, do remember to bargain/negotiate for better prices. Usually, the more you buy, the lower the prices of the items it will be.

Some bags for you?

And sadly, it started raining, or rather pouring half way through our shopping.

later in the evening, came here for a highly recommended chicken soup.
It is located in Section 21, with a bright red sign that you won’t miss out. Do try the chicken noodle with soup if you are here!

3 bowls of noodles + 2 cokes costs about THB$200 (S$8)
Chicken is awesomely tender.

And a little dessert, of what looks like Singaporean Roti Prata but filled with condensed milk and sugar.
We requested for no condensed milk, it was sweet enough with just the sugar.

For THB$10 ($0.40)

Night market is also opened in Chatuchuk for shopping at night. They are not the stalls in the day, but more like street stalls in Chatuchuk (similar to Singapore’s night market also known as Pasar Malam). After dinner, we walk to the Rot Fai Night Market, which mainly sells vintage stuff and has nice cafe there. You can ask people along the way on how to walk.

Really like the vintage feel of the entire place and the things that they sell. Totally reminded me of the olden school days.
