A Place Not to be Missed When You're in Bangkok;

Hello folks!
Here's the continuation from my previous post regarding the trip to Bangkok with my fam. 
It is downright true that Bangkok is famous for its shopping galore and Chatuchak Market a.k.a JJ Market is something you definitely do not want to miss out. Girls, i bet you will go crazy!!

P/S: Be prepared to drenched yourself in sweat and that very-uncomfortable-sticky feeling on your largest organ; the skin. 

Take the BTS (Sky Train) and the last stop (Mo Chit) is where the Chatuchak Market is. 
It is about 5 to 6 stops from where we stayed and we only paid about 40 baht per person if im not mistaken.
(The BTS is uber convenient and cheap tho taking cabs in Bangkok is rather cheap too.)

Since Chatuchak Market is only open during the weekends, hence, the place is so crowded with both locals and tourists as well.

"Bangkok's Chatuchak area is of course famous for the mother of all markets, Chatuchak Weekend Market the biggest in Asia. Covering 70 rai (35 acres) of land with over 15,000 stalls and more than 200,000 visitors every Saturday and Sunday, conquering this massive market is no easy feat. A visit to the Thai capital would also not be complete without a day or two browsing here, because a few hours simply won't do the job."

Basically, the market is divided into quite a number of sections;

a) Clothings and accessories - sections 2-6, 10-26
b) Handicrafts - sections 8-11
c) Ceramics - sections 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 25
d) Furniture and home decoration - sections 1, 3, 4, 7, 8
e) Food and beverage - sections 2, 3, 4, 23, 24, 26, 27
f) Plants and gardening tools - sections 3, 4
g) Art and gallery - section 7
h) Pets and pet accessories - sections 8, 9, 11, 13
i) Books - sections 1, 27
j) Antiques and collectibles - sections 1, 26

Along the street before you enter the market.

Perfect meme to prank on guys if you know what i mean. ;)

I was so in loveeeeeeee with this shop. Guess which one i picked for le boyf and myself. Teehee.

Everything here is about pork! Mad love!

My fav grilled porky. Only 10 baht (RM 1) per stick!

Drink this and fap happily lol wtf.

A must try!! Add in whatever ingredients that is prepared on the table (fish oil, sugar, chilli flakes) and waaa-lah!

The pets section. 

Advertising campaign for Whiskas.
If you have been to Thailand, i'm pretty sure you'll be amazed by their creativity in the advertising campaigns.
Really mind-blowing.

I reckon that its a advertising campaign for their telco?
It was so cool!

All in all, you can get just about anything and everything here in Chatuchak. Just bear the heat and be prepared too for being exhausted and sore legs at the end of the day. Honestly, i did not really go through every single alley cause' there's too many and it is rather confusing (no wonder people call it a maze!).

Also, brush up on your negotiation skills and bargain for the best price! I bought dresses and bikini at below RM 25! Just imagine how crazy you'll get. ;) 

Just a confession tho, after visiting Bangkok i will not buy anything online anymore. It's the same stuffs and yet they hike the price to at least triple! 

Have fun shopping in Bangkok! Don't forget Platinum fashion shopping mall as well. ;)

Til' then, have a great day ahead lovelies!

Breathe Again;

Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn't look back
At the comfortable glow from the porch, the one i would still call yours?
All those words came undone and now i'm not the only one
Facing the ghosts that decide if the fire inside still burns

All i have, all i need, he's the air that i would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still i'm searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday i'll breathe again
I'll breathe again

Open up next to you and my secrets become your truth
And the distance between that was sheltering me comes in full view
Hang my head, break my heart built from all i have torn apart
And my burden to bear is a love i can't carry anymore

It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am i gonna do?

All i have, all i need, he's the air that i would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still i'm searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday i'll breathe again
I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again...
