Shopping, Eating, Massaging!

Monday, September 05, 2011

Ooooh..back from a week of holiday! In fact, after a three full days of chionging in BKK, we had to have another relaxing getaway in Batam to beat the exhaustion. Endless eating, endless shopping and the heavenly massages (some were not that great though)! This time, we did not take much photos. Mostly, by the time we remembered to take pictures, we were halfway digging into our food.

We went back to our usual and must go haunts:
1. Ban Khun Mae @ Around Siam Square ~Authentic Thai food~
The mango salad, fish, tom yam soup and the desserts were superb!

2. Mount Fuji @ Siam Paragon ~Excellent Jap food at a friendly price~
The half finished food shown below really did injustice to the glorious things that we stuff into our stomach! We had much much much more than these.

3. TK&K Seafood @ Chinatown ~Succulent seafood~
Sorry no pics. We had our "dinner" there around 11plus after a Thai massage. It was too late and some items like squid were not available. Sad! Still, we took crabs and other stuffs.

4 Bird nests and Shark Fins @ Chinatown ~passable for thb300 / S$12
We had these after our dinner. Goodness, how sinful!

5. Vacum packed four guavas in cane juice from Siam Paragon back to Sg. In fact, Siam Paragon gourmet market is rather similar to the food hall at Takashimaya. Of course, the varieties offered are different and much cheaper!! This time, the kids enjoyed the guavas as much as we do.

We had dim sum lunch at our Anorma Hotel too. In my opinion, you can give it a miss.  

Last year, the guys tried two tailors and they went back to this guy which is located at Sukhumvit Soi 11. He may not offer the best price in town but the quality and designs are rather superior. The shirts came up to about S$40+ with many details such as different materials for trimmings and initials sewn on.

We spent one and a half day at Platinum Mall. We were misson focused. Guys and ladies went separate ways. Guys were recalled when our hands were full and needed them to take over our purchases. :)) Just a year different, Platinum had another extension with another five levels of shopping! When you buy two or more pieces in the same shop, the price would be labelled as "wholesale price" and relatively cheaper. Being liked minded, when one of us found an item in a particular shop, another would also manage to spot another item from the same shop.  So, we often bought the items at wholesale price. It's not only the ladies but the guys too!
The vain guys

Till next year!
