{ Pillow Talk } Bangkok in our Minds

Almost every night Hubby and I were reminiscing our 3 years stay in Bangkok. We missed a lot of things there and hoping we could spend our vacation there next year.

Here are some:

1. Hubby's office in Bangkok takes about 10 mins walk from our place, he comes home for lunch. His new office here in Tokyo is 1 hour away from home.

2. We lived in Sukhumvit Soi 8, near all major malls along Sukhumvit. You name it: Robinson which is walking distance from our place; Emporium 2 stations away going to Onut; Central Chidlom and World Trade plus Gaysorn 2 stations away going to Mochit; Siam Center & Discovery 3 stations away going to Mochit. There are two new malls near Siam, Paragon and SOGO (renovated) beside Hyatt hotel.

3. FOOD! Tony Romas and Pomodoro are just around the corner (actually in front of hubby's office), Subway sandwich, Via Vai Italian Resto, etc. Food is very cheap in Bangkok! There are stalls by the road side selling yummy thai noodles for 25 baht and thai bbq for 5 baht, not to mention the delicious Shawarma at Soi 3 (a street full of Middle Eastern restaurants).

4. Tuk-tuk service in our condo. And Taxis everywhere.

5. Redeemer Church is 1 station away (5 min. walking + short motorcycle ride), located in Ploenchit.

6. Beaches (Koh Samet and most specially Koh Samui) and nice places to go.

7. Massage (foot and body, really miss it)

I always compare our life there and here, it's totally different. I still prefer Bangkok but I enjoy the adventure that we're experiencing here. We're also starting to look for Rein's play school and the fees are for the filthy rich!
