Bangkok Trip: 20.04.06 ~ 22.04.06

Hubs and I went to pick the kids up at about 4pm from the nursery. They told us that Princess was so excited. When we arrived at the LCC airport, we had something light at Coffee Bean. Boy enjoyed the scones. He had already taken his dinner at 3pm - he really can eat! When we were boarding, suddenly Princess told me "Mommy I don't want to sit this plane, I want to sit small plane". Oh my gosh! I explained to her and she understands. She was ok after we were seated. When we took-off they were ok too. We had cup noodle and a drink in the plane. The kids seem to enjoy the flight. We reached Bangkok International Airport at about 8pm. Upon arriving there, Barry and Amelia (my cousins - who were there for business) were already there to pick us up for dinner. We stopped by this very nice chinese restaurant (forgot the name). They serve very good shark's fin soup (with whole piece of shark's fin - don't think can get it here). Their peking duck is really great as well as their curry crab. Their curry spice is different from the ones here. The taste of their food there is totally unique and nice. Simply delicious! Too bad I was too hungry and forgotten to take a picture. We stayed at Taipan Hotel located in Sukhumvit Road with Barry and Amelia. That night I didn't sleep too well. Its the norm for me when I'm sleeping in an unfamiliar place. When we woke up in the morning, we went to eat in a coffee shop. The noodle soup was really good too. The soup is really unique. The kids love it too. After breakfast we went to do our shopping at Ma Boon Krong (MBK). Upon arriving there, I told Princess we are not buying toys today. Everytime we pass by a stall that sells those disney character stuffs and bags, she'll turn to me and say "Mommy I got many toys at home already". I told her "Yes Princess you have many toys already". I have no problem going shopping with her cos she understands. Wouldn't want her to be throwing tantrums in the middle of the mall. We did some shopping for the kids and a little bit for ourselves. The food there is ok but Princess likes the fish ball noodle soup. She was eating while humming to a tune. Must be nice - its a bit different compare to the ones here. In the cab, going back to the hotel We took a cab back to the hotel and it cost us Baht200 .... total rip-off! Princess didn't sleep in the afternoon, so when we reached the hotel she took a nap. When she woke up from her nap at around 8pm, we took a sky-train to Suan Lum Night Market. Had dinner there. Its not really nice. Bought some stuffs there too. Princess likes this cute little hand-crafted piggy. So we bought one for her. We didn't finished shopping at the night market because the last train was at 11pm. We went back to the hotel at 10 plus and the kids went to bed at 1am. So late! We took an early flight home at 10am. The only thing that we didn't do there was massage. Yes! Can you believe it! In Thailand and no massage! Sigh nevermind .. next time. Overall the trip was too short and travelling to a foreign country with kids is a challenge but we are proud to say that we managed well. Looking forward to our next trip again. Bangkok International Airport Departure Hall I bought this T-shirt in Mothercare. Was too tempted by the workings on it. Cousins Barry and Amelia Princess 'experimenting' on the plane

    loc kee: yeah next time would be much better I hope *fingers crossed*.

    mom2ashley: yeah but its quite a hassle with a 1 year old. Denisha is ok .. she really enjoyed the trip. When we came back she told me she wanted to go on the plane again. Pockets empty now. :p

    two little fellas: its not that bad actually. I do get a little fuss from Darien but the key thing is to keep his stomach happy. :) In another year or two should be much better travelling with him.

    zara's mama: yeah a very short trip. Didn't visit any sights. Weather was so hot and the pollution there was bad. Spend most of the time in the mall. We'll spend longer time there when the kids are bigger. It will be mush easier as well. :)
