Today we are on our own. Free and easy and it’s a full day at Chatuchak market. Ppl say that this place you cannot finish walking even 2 full days. And the best part, surely to get lost. Bear in mind that this market only open on weekend and officially open from 9am to 6pm. But getting there earlier is an advantage to shop but not all shops are open and leaving early will avoid the jam.
After our breakfast in the hotel, we took a cab to the market and reach there around 9 something nearly to 10am. 30% of the shop is not open yet. But i tell you this is the best time to shop. 1st not so hot and 2ndly those shop not open you can skip. DOn’t worry, you won’t miss anything spectacular. Probably you can get in other shop the similar thing. This way you can also cover more of the market.
When i reach there, the 1st thing i saw as house deco and it’s my favourite. i couldn’t stand. I wasn’t prepare in this trip to bring back those things. So i told Ha-b to walk faster and skip all the house deco. Don’t look left, don’t look right. Don’t want to spend time and money this area. My main purpose is to shop for my Cophie and clothing. But i really wanted so badly to grab a few of the decos lor. My hand damn itchy lor.

1st stop, the pet area. Can already hear the little puppies bark from far away. When i reach there, i was very happy but also sad to see those little puppies being caged and there’s 2 golden retrievers were caged in a small cage. They can’t even lift up their head. Damn shitty rite? Geram-nia… but i can’t do anything. 1 things good is that the whole place were clean. The puppies were bathe and fed. So at least 1 thing for sure, the puppies there are not living in a gross, slimy, dirty area. Thank God for that. I proceed to the 1st shop to get a dog bag. It’s a bag for me to carry Cophie around NOT a bag for Cophie to carry. 🙂 Got it for a quite reasonable price until i came back and my colleague told me she bought at RM8 less than mine. Hai~~ at least is cheaper than Malaysia. Some tit-bits and 2 stainless steel bowl for Lucky and Cophie each. Also 2 collars with bell and 1 body leash for Cophie. The best is the 2 baju for Cophie. hehehe…. Cophie also can celebrate CNY already.

I had to stop myself from bringing back the whole pet area , so i quickly move on to clothing area. The clothing is much much cheaper over here. However the place is not air-conditioned some might not really enjoy shopping here. I’m fine. As long it’s cheap and it comes with different sizes, i’m fine. As i walk along i could only see the t-shirts that suits me. Most of the blouses cannot fit me (~_~). Those shop having bigger size need to top-up extra around RM2-3. Why are they discriminating ppl who are more voluptuous, bootilicious, curvi-licous, meati-licious? They jealous or what? Ya i think so. Coz when i look around everybody is “smaller” in terms of everything. Hahaha…What a lame excuse hor? (just to make myself happy okay. no offence to anybody) I didn’t manage to get alot clothing from Chatuchak, but i bought a few accessories and pants. They have different sizes for pants.
(Tips: If you have “beautiful” asset like mine and find it very difficult to buy a pant without trying on, bring along extra shorts when shopping in Bangkok as most places are not allow to try on. Unless you are in the high-class shopping mall. All you need is just take out your pants and measure on whatever pants you would like to buy. The waist line, the buttock line, the thigh line. It’s accurate!)
Meet up with the rest at around 12pm, the rest decided to go back to Platinum Fashion Mall, but me and Ha-B decided to stay put to explore more of Chatuchak. Really love it here but tak larat to carry everything back. We also had our lunch at the market. Beef and pork noodle. Ok-lah at least my desire completed halfway.

We continue to explore after lunch. People start to flood the place. I cannot really walk properly. We try to walk into the small alley, deep deep inside to avoid the crowd. Anyhow ppl still keeps coming in more and more. We decided to leave the place. You know la, baju tak ada, orang ramai, mood pun hilang. We took a cab and meet the rest at Platinum.
Reaching Platinum, ppl also seems to be as many as Chatuchak Market. The feeling is different compare to the 1st day. Everything seems the same and mood also not so peak. Maybe i’m tired maybe already biasa with it. But still manage to get a decent dress coz the shop was having a 50% discount. You know-lah, my eyes already preset to target on 50% and above long long time ago and my sensor will direct me to the place, unintentionally. Wuahahah….
We went to ChinaTown for dinner to try the suckling pig and shark fin soup. I know the Shark fin soup suppose to be famous and cheap in Bangkok, but i didn’t know the suckling pig also famous. As usual lor.. ppl bring we follow lor. BIL bought deserts, Thai durian. I’m only in love with bitter durians and since Thai durian is sweet, i can’t comment much. Other loved it though.
After dinner we went to the Patphong to “buka mata” on the night life and red light district. Continue strolling to Bangkok Centre to take photos of the Christmas decorations and supposingly to have a beer at beer garden. Tak jadi sampai beer garden coz we walk too much end up too tired to even have a drink. Just want to go back hotel and have a good body massage. We massage for 2 hours that day, until 2am. BTW the dinner really sucky.
