(Clockwise) Tea, Cheese, Chicken Pasta, Marble Cake, Mineral Water.

The pasta is too soft and the sauce is too little but the taste is alright. The marble cake is not bad, not too sweet.


Day 2 :- Breakfast in hotel (Non-Halal)

During our trip, we stayed in Baiyoke Sky Hotel and it's known as the tallest building in Thailand. It's such an enjoy to have your breakfast on 77th floor and what's more, it's breakfast buffet! There were lots of varieties of food available, from cereals to different types of breads and buns. Japanese cuisine, Indian cuisine, Chinese cuisine, dim sum and fresh fruit juices.

Their Siew Mai is really good. It's made out of pork meat and the meat is really fresh and this is why it tastes so much better than Lucky's siew mai even though the size is slightly smaller as compared to Lucky's.

Oh yea, i feel that Brunei's cakoi is Size L, Malaysia's cakoi is Size M and Thailand's cakoi should be Size S.

Thailand Trip : 22nd Nov 2007 - 25th Nov 2007

Itinerary :

Day 1 - Departed from B.S.B at 10.55pm and arrived Bangkok at 1 am.
Day 2 - At 9.30am, took van to outskirt of Bangkok to visit temple. Back to Bangkok at 6.30pm. Dinner at 7.20pm. Prayed for Thai Buddha in the open area of Central World. Shopped at the night market near to hotel.
Day 3 - Woke up early in the morning at 6am. Visited the morning garment market near the hotel. Followed hotel's shuttle bus at 11am to MBK Shopping Mall. Back to hotel at 5.30pm. Walk to Central World for dinner at 7pm and walked back to hotel at 11pm.
Day 4 - Woke up early to catch the Sunday market near the hotel. Start the journey to airport at 12 noon and had lunch in one of the airport restaurants. 2.55pm, on plane, sit back, relax while reading to my precious Shopaholic novel.


Very short trip I know. It's my first visit to Bangkok and with this experience, i realised that it would be a lot better for me to plan my holiday before departure next time.

Lesson that i learnt from this trip : If i ever visit Bangkok again next time, i'll just bring a small bag to travel and buy a big luggage at one of the shopping malls and just shop around the malls with the luggage (better to have the rollers type). Whatever I buy, i could just dump it all into this big luggage bag.

Pictures would be up later.

Sbinati Kebab, Bunut Hua Ho Mall Food Court

Sbinati Kebab is easy to access as it has locates small stall outside many branches of Hua Ho (include Kiulap Hua Ho and Delima Hua Ho). In Bunut Hua Ho Mall, you can find Sbinati Kebab stall in the food court and the stall serves all kinds of Arabian food which not only kebab but also rice and etc.

It was my very first time trying out Arabian Chicken rice. The rice itself is cooked with raisins and some spicies which made it smells so nice. It also comes with salad and I heard from friend that the mayonnaise is made by the staff (or boss?) and not purchased from supermarkets. Both the rice and chicken are not oily and it's suitable for people who dislike oily food, especially girls.

Fruit Pudding from Bakerlyn Cake House

Uncle Liang was being so generous and gave me four puddings from Bakerlyn Cake House.
Thank you!
The sweetness of the pudding is just right at the level, not too sweet, but the fruits are a bit sour.
Never mind, they still blend well!
As i said, it's a gift so i'm not sure about the price but Bakerlyn has a really good reputation for fresh cakes and pastries.
It is located next to the old Kiulap Baiduri Bank which is same row as Parvati and Mamih Cafe.

Teo Poi Hoon Foodstall, Batu Bersurat

Teo Poi Hoon Foodstall has got two branches, 1 in Kiulap and another one in Batu Bersurat.
Few days ago we visited the Batu Bersurat branch for lunch and despite the heavy rain, the business was in brisk.
The restaurant serves Halal food.
I ordered Chocolate Pearl Milk Tea but it didn't taste as good as it was before and i was quite disappointed with that.
As for the food, we ordered Furong Omelet Rice (basically just Green Peppers, Chili, Mushrooms and Chicken omelet), Japanese Beancurd with Minced Chicken rice and Kim Chi Fried rice.
I scanned through the menu and found out that they actually serve Kim Chi fried rice and so i decided to try it out as i was craving for kim chi.
But i was so surprised when the fried rice arrived.
Usually, the kim chi is suppose to be cut into small pieces and fry together with the rice and egg but in this case, it is so different!
The chef actually just fry the rice without frying together with the kim chi. When the rice is done frying, later then the chef add some kim chi on top as toppings.
I didn't expected it to be like this but the fried rice tastes good though. The kim chi is kinda salty, not as good as the ones i tasted before.
The Japanese Beancurd with Minced Chicken rice looks good but i didn't try it out.
The restaurant is located right next to the $2.99 shop in Batu Bersurat.

Korean Restaurant, Kiulap (2)

We made a return to Korean Restaurant and decided to try out the BBQ Chicken.
Other than that, we decided to try out their set meal which includes 5 side dishes and a bowl of rice too but the waitress told us that the BBQ Chicken also includes the side dishes and so we changed our mind and ordered the Korean Pancake.
You can choose to let the kitchen to cook the BBQ Chicken for you or do it yourself on the stove which is installed on each table.

Yappy Kopitiam, Kiulap

New Chinese restaurant in town!!!
I accompanied mom to attend her friend's new restaurant launching yesterday during lunch hours.
Yappy Kopitiam is considered family business and it serves halal food.
I went through their menu and noticed that the restaurant does not only serve chinese food but also some western food such as Cabonara, Lamb chop, Fish and Chips and etc.
I was told that Yappy Curry Mee and Yappy Prawn Mee would be their specialties and there are two types of Yappy Curry Mee. It can be dry or wet. I'm not that sure but i think dry = fry and wet = soupy (like laksa?).
But i didn't get to try those as yesterday's event was just to invite relatives and close friends over to try out the food.
The restaurant is located in the building behind Saffron.
It may not seem big it is divided into smoking and non-smoking area.
Yappy Kopitiam is currently having Kolo Mee promotion for three days (starting today) which is only Bnd$1.50 per plate.
Hurry up and go try out!

Happy Union, Gadong

Day : Sunday

Location : Same block as Gadong Booker. It was previously known as Overseas Restaurant then later changed to Happy Union Restaurant.

Service : Very very very s.l.o.w. Waited about 45 minutes for a plate of simple fried noodles and Sin Chew fried bee hoon to be served on table. Complained many times to the waitresses but they didn't really bother to check our order with the kitchen.

Cleanness : Found a hair sticking on the Xiao Long Bao.

Food : It may be the only place that sells Xiao Long Bao in BSB.. if i'm not mistaken. The dim sum was just alright. Siew Mai is in size S. A lot smaller than Lucky's. Sin Chew fried bee hoon, just average.
