My best friend, Mee, came to visit me with her son, Palm~ OMG HE’S SO CUTE!
We had lunch at home, it’s so cute when nPalm was trying to feed his mom. Messy, but cute! Other than that, we didn’t do much besides playing with her son and keeping each other updated with lives. It’s never enough time to catch up with everything I’ve missed, simply because I live in the US. Kinda suck, huh? :(
But domestic rants still win! LOL
BTW, kids are the hardest thing to take photos, especially with P&S camera! Go for a video clip, peeps! And if a kid couldn’t see you, you couldn’t see him either, that’s the rule! Hide-n-seek was so much fun that way~ xD
We walked out to the department store, about 5 minutes away from my house, late in the afternoon, went to have early dinner at S&P Restaurant. nPalm dozed off while having a piece of chicken in his hand, on its way to his mouth. Hilariously cute!
My friend’s husband came to pick them up. After this super rich milk ice cream (OMG want one now!), they dropped me off at home. Mee and I were set to meet again soon!

BIG lunch. Japanese buffet at Keyaki Restaurant on 22nd floor of the Pan Pacific Hotel.
Cancer sucks. Period.
Anyway, after that, we went to the Pan Pacific Hotel for lunch with my other aunt, uncle and cousins. No word could describe how delicious it was!
Oh boy, too much food, I felt like exploding~ LOL FACT: buffet = self torture!
My cousins and I decided to go burn some calories off at Jatujak Market, so we took BTS skytrain there.
Probably I was too full so I lost all appetite to buy stuff! Not to mention that it was so crowded and the weather was super hot that I was practically melting. After a few hours of walking around, hunting for my little cousin fashion T-shirt (still couldn’t find the one he wanted lol), we decided to abort the mission and head home.
I got only 2T’s and didn’t even wander to the jewelry section of the market. FAILED! lol
Totally skipped dinner. Still full!

Thai body massage could be seriously painful.
So long, Health Land. Never gonna go back there again! BOO! I felt Health Land was too big now with so many branches, it’s too commercialized that they didn’t really pay attention to customer and service quality. Or maybe it’s just me and my bad luck? LOL
After the agonizingly torturous session (serious!), I decided to walk back home, swinging by the post office to buy some stamps for a series of daily postcards I sent to someone (still kicking myself to this day that I didn’t take pictures of the first 10 or so postcards for the record, oh well..).
I stopped to have lunch at my most favorite noodle stand on the way home. Spicy noodle with marinated pork. HEAVEN!
FYI – Thai mango tasted way better than Mexican, American, etc etc mangoes!
Digging through my old stuff in the afternoon, picking out some clothing for donation. I found this bear in one of my closets. Apparently, my parents knew I’d end up working for Boeing ever since I was still in grade school~ LOL @ my magic rainbow blanket!
It’s halfway through my vacation already. Ouch.

If you’re curious, I didn’t gain weight during this trip. Surprisingly enough, I actually lost a few pounds, even with all these crazy food consumptions. lol It’s a magic of walking and sweating, I’m telling you~ ;)
Grand Sanyod used to be only ‘Sanyod’ restaurant, but when they moved into this giant shopping mall, they added ‘Grand’ to their name so they could charge more. That’s my theory! LOL The food was delish!
(from top left, clockwise) Beef in oyster sauce // Stir-fried rice noodle in gravy sauce (Rad Nah) // BBQ duck, BBQ pork and crispy pork // Shrimp ball (SO GOOD)
After lunch, we went to iBerry for some desserts
In the evening, my other aunt took me out to dinner (lol, my trip was all about food!) This time, we went to Tang Sui Heng (it’s pronounced like this in Thai, but I have no clue how to properly spell it in English!) for some out-of-the-world goose wings and legs/claws. *purrs* I’ve been wanting to go back to this place for years! Finally! :D
We hopped to another noodle stand, super famous for its fish ball. Fish ball noodle was soooooo goood~
My aunt and I decided to take MRT (underground train) home since it’s only one station. BTW, I just love this signage. Any Sue out there must feel really uncomfortable riding this train! xD And in Thai, this last station doesn’t sound like ‘bang sue’ at all, believe me! lol
I helped my aunt with our factory budget files, pretty much revamping them all in order to simplify inputting process. I felt like I was back to work already. BTW, Office 2007 is a b*tch. It’s going to be a circus when most of us at Boeing gets a refresh computer later this year as it’s going to come with Window 7 and Office 2007. HA!

Wednesday (again). Busy day.
I hopped on a Skytrain to meet Mee near her office for lunch at Greyhound Restaurant. Followed by desserts at After You Dessert Café. Delicious!
(from top left, clockwise again) Caesar salad // Spicy spaghetti with crispy fish // Lemon slush // Chocolate lava
And this Shibuya Honey Toast! OMG MY FAVORITE EVER! It’s pretty much a crispy baked bread with butter (lots of butter), and vanilla ice cream and whip cream and honey and OMG IT’S SO YUMMY!!!! (gonna try making it someday lol)
After our 2-hour lunch (lol her boss must love me), Mee went back to work while I took the Skytrain back to Saladaeng station and walked back home, then came back out an hour later for a massage. LOL 90 minutes of Thai massage that day was pure bliss~ Stretching but not painful. I love it~ ♥
I met my cousin at Central World in the evening for Sherlock Holmes movie. We had a quick and light dinner before the showtime at Yum Saab restaurant.
Yum MaMa – aka instant noodle salad. We forgot to tell the waitress that we didn’t want it to be too spicy, hence, we almost cried because it’s really hot! lol
Papaya salad (if you can see any papaya hidden behind those chillies lol) with salted egg.
Sherlock Holmes was okay, I liked the beginning and the end, not so much the middle, kinda slow. Overall, it was entertaining~
Oh, I also bought a super cute black wool coat from Zara~ I didn’t really get why they’re selling a whole bunch of wool coats in Thailand, it’s not as if the weather would be cold enough for people to wear them, even in winter. Probably they targeted just those who travel to colder countries? like me? lol
To sum it all up, it was another awesome day! ♥
