Bangkok Trip Day 3

Bonjour :) Before we start our journey , we went to have breakfast :) 
I got no idea what name is this shop called :( But yes! It's the famous shop that everyone always have their breakfast :) We finally got a seat^^

Meatball glass noodle soup :) My family's favourite!
Tom Yum Meatball egg noodle. I needed something hot and spicy :b My favourite!!
Location : Not so sure. 
Direction : Walk into Soi 19 , beside Shibuya 19. Go all the way to the end of the road , cross the metal hurdle to get further inside. The stall is at your left hand side. 

Reviews :  The food here is cheap and yummy! It only cost like 300baht (SGD$12) for 8 bowls of noodles and drinks! :) One of my family's favourite street stall for a decent meal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

After we were done with our breakfast , it was time to do some shopping , ONCE AGAIN. 
We are back to Pratunam Wholesale Market :)

The main focus for today will be Siam Ocean World :)

Siam Ocean World. 
Nina recommended us to go visit the Siam Ocean World since many young kids like this kind of places.
Since Ocean World was in the basement of a mall , the top level will definitely be shops.

Still early and hence so empty.
Gourmet Market , like SG's NTUC Finest.

Durian Craves.
My favouriteee!

I wonder , why they build the ocean world under the mall. 

The entrance of Ocean World
Taxi Driver bought the tickets for us :)

Giant Crab!

Mini Lobster.

Crispy Fish? Haha. 


Cutie Pie!
Seahorses are one of my favourite!

Can you spot the fish?

They are really adorable!

Guess what is this?

This is a tortoise!


Water beaver? 

Big fat shark!

Outside of the entrance is a place for you to take pictures first. (Taken before I left.)
Location : Siam Paragon Basement. 991 Rama 1 Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330.
Contact No. : +66 2687 2000
Price : 900-950baht (SGD$40) per pax.

Reviews :  In my family's opinion , this Ocean World is rather boring. It consist of Underwater Tunnel , Tanks , Ponds but it doesn't really have alot of marine creatures to see. Singapore's Sea Aquarium and Underwater-world is much more better , with more variety of creatures to look at. HongKong's Ocean World is much more interesting too. Hence , I DO NOT RECOMMEND.  

MahBoonKrong Shopping Centre. (MBK)
After we are done with Ocean World , we proceeded to MBK for some shopping :) 

E.g. Pork Floss Rolls aka "Dog Shit" in hokkien.
It's really cheap compared to outside!

The very famous Mango Sticky Rice. Asok sells the best mango sticky rice but MBK's was tasty too :) 
Wide variety of shops.

Location : MBK Centre Phayathai Rd. Pathumwan , Bangkok 10330. ( Beside Pathumwan Princess )
Opening Hours : 10am - 10pm
How to get there : 1. By BTS - Siam Station or Nation Stadium Station
                             2. By Taxi 
                             3. Walking distance from Siam Paragon , Siam Square. 

Reviews :  MBK has over 2,000 shops with wide range of products like electronics , bags , clothes , accessories. You can shop till you drop here! Bargaining of prices can be done here and you can get up to half the original price! Don't settle for the first shop , check out a few other shops cause most shops sell the same product but price may differ greatly! :) Don't forget to patronise the snack shop , you really wouldn't wanna miss it! SUPER HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We went back to the hotel to rest before we go for our dinner :)

Kaiton Pratunam Chicken Rice.
Before we departed to BKK , we did some research on nice food places to go , Kaiton Pratunam Chicken Rice stall came up several times. I've seen it on Taiwan variety show as well. Therefore , we decided to go give it a try.

On our way to Kaiton , there were some cos-play event outside Platinum Fashion Mall , thus we decided to check them out. :)

Tuk-tuk Ice-cream truck!
Too cute to be eaten! 

Different flavoured buns on sale :D Taste good! 

Custard and Chocolate bun. Nice! :)
In order to reach the chicken rice stall , you have to cross the road. 
Make sure you can see the big screen TV while you wait to cross the road.
This shows that you are on the right side of the road. 
Finally , the very famous Chicken Rice Stall. 
If you are not sure where or if you are at the correct stall , look opposite!
You should be facing the Palladium Shopping Mall! 
Another way to verify is that the servers are all in PINK!

Bitter Gourd Pork Rib Soup.
Zero traces of oil on this chicken! 

One set ^^
Location : Petchburi Soi 30 Bangkok, Thailand
Opening Hours : Opens daily from 5.30am – 3pm , 5pm – 3am
How to get there : It is directly opposite Palladium Shopping Mall. Facing entrance of Platinum Fashion Mall , turn to your left and keep walking straight until you reach the flyover. Illegally(as what most people does) , cross the road , use the "palladium" sign on your left as a guide and continue walking straight while making sure that the sign is always on your left , the chicken rice shop will be on your right hand side.  

Reviews : Both my family and I feel that this Chicken Rice is a little too overrated. It is actually kinda normal , except that the soups they serve are really delicious and the chicken having zero traces of oil (health conscious i guess). Haha. If you guys like oil-less chicken then sure , give it a try :) I only liked their soup and rice. Hehe ^_^ NEUTRAL.  

When you finish dinner , it's time to digest your food! We illegally crossed the road again , to a night market that caught our attention across the street.

Palladium Night Market.
I don't really know what this night market is called but since it was in front of Palladium Shopping Mall. So I named it the Palladium Night Market.

Many different temp stalls set up , selling variety of things!
All of them are cheap to an extent.

The weather was getting really bad so we decided to head back to the hotel before it rains heavily.

You can tell how cloudy it was , it rained heavily after we reached our hotel. 
Night shot taken at my room's balcony.
That's all for Day 3 :)

Comment if you would like to know where to find the mango sticky rice at Asok! :)
