Bangkok 2017: Day Three

We started the day with the hotel breakfast. Today, I decided to jazz it up and make my own Thai fusion bacon sandwich. It was seriously on my mind when I woke up.

Toasted bread, loads of butter, cucumbers, fish sauce, a sunny side up egg and BACON. Loads of BACON. We had the porridge again, this time a more watery version with shrimp.

After lazing a little more, we checked out and made our way to Cabochon.

This hotel is just breathtaking.

We got the simplest room available but that itself was amazing. The little features – the vintage tub, sleek bed, burlap blinds, made the whole place so quaint.

There was also a shared living area which was just so pretty.

We decided that we had to come back the next time.

I even managed to squeeze a manicure at Rain Hill before checking in. And Immanuel spent some quiet time at Pacamera, also at Rain Hill, which is about a minute’s walk from the hotel.

Just a few minutes walk from Phrom Pong station, this place has the quietness of a hipster hotel, yet is extremely convenient.

Our trip to Chatuchak was pretty fruitful with some sandals. But these were the highlight:

The spicy glass noodle salad was soooooooo refreshing and delicious! Slightly spicy as I didn’t want another case like the mango salad I had at Platinum. Tears at a food court – embarrassing.

It rained quite a bit but we managed to take cover indoors. We lost interest very quickly and took a train to the New Rot Fai market at Ratchada. Quite an easy route from Kamphaeng MRT to Thailand Cultural Center MRT

We didn’t really buy anything but this was worth the trip down ๐Ÿ™‚

Immanuel loves seafood done this way and we had this ‘All Sea’ small set at just 399B. Not really cheap but definitely far cheaper than options at home.

So inspired to eat like that in our new home!

We ended the night with a massage at At Ease, very conveniently located near Phrom Phong BTS. We both did a 1.5 hour foot massage + foot scrub + head massage for 680B each. However, we both felt it paled in comparison to Watergate Spa. Maybe our masseuses were too tired.. We ended our massage at 11pm. Nevertheless – ending a long long day of walking (in the rain no less) with a foot and head massage is an awesome thing to do ๐Ÿ™‚
