Bangkok day 2 - MBK Center, Siam & Platinum Fashion Mall (B)

Day 1 here if you haven't read it. =)

The next day, we headed nearby to the famous SabX2 wanton mee for breakfast. Got lost and asked around, before we found out it was closed that day! Quite sad but still, managed to get 2 bags and 2 pairs of shoes nearby. LOL!

Dropped off my loots in the room before heading to MBK Center. It was a 20-25 mins walk away. We reached slightly after 10am and the shops were slowly starting to open. Had breakfast at their foodcourt. You have to purchase this card at the counter and use it to buy the food. 

All for 280B (SGD11.20). I remember quite clearly because we had deposited 300B into the card and there was 20B left after buying the milk tea. And we forgot to return the card lol. Food was quite normal. Except for the oyster omelet; too starchy for my liking.

Then we began shopping! The top levels were more of clothes and souvenirs, whereas the lower levels were more of electronic stuff and bags. Quite a boring place I must say. =X

'Lunch' was at Dunkin' Donuts. I am officially a fan of Iced Americano now. ^_^ And dabao-ed a pack of papaya salad, where we had it in one of the Siam shopping centres.

On our way back, we passed through the various Siam shopping centres, like Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and Siam Discovery Centre. Don't know which was which too. It was mainly branded stuff which were more expensive, so we actually just passed through it.

Went over to finish up Platinum Fashion Mall Building B. I think this is slightly smaller than Building A, but I felt it was more interesting. It was mainly shoes and bags. Side note: it is always very difficult for me to buy shoes because I have big feet. But in Bangkok, it seems so easy. A lot of places not only have my shoe size (41 or 42) but also go way up to 46. It sure feels good to be able to buy shoes according to the design I like rather than which designs have my size.

Anyway, we finished up shopping pretty fast and I went back for a short nap while SSD headed over for his clothes fitting. Didn't help that I had a headache and had to take painkillers for it. =(

Dinner was at the nearby roadside stalls. It was always crowded so we went early about 6+. I think this stretch of stalls is famous for their salt-grilled fish, which could be seen on almost every table. We chose the last stall, the one nearest to Central World. It wasn't expensive too; only 180B (SGD7.20) for such a huge fish. Ordered some extra sides (too much actually) which were all pretty good! The mixed veggies were a little weird but still not that bad. And the tom yum soup had lots of ingredients.

Total bill came up to 980B (SGD39.20). Not very expensive right?

My loots. I suppose it's really very very little, considering we had MBK and Platinum Mall. SSD bought even lesser stuff lmao.
