Day Seven Bangkok, Thailand (Oct 15 2013)

Today is our last day in Thailand.  Woke up at around 10 something in the morning, freshen up and went out for lunch.  Since I was still not feeling too well, we just want down to the mall right next to our hotel to have lunch. Here’s what we ate for our last lunch in Bangkok……

After lunch we went to Swensen for a mango drink, here’s a photo of it…..

After our mango drink at Swensen, we went to Big C supermarket again to pick up some Thai style seasoning.  After that we went for a foot massage again.  Our last Thai style foot massage before heading home.  After our massage, we went back to the hotel, pick up our bags and head out to to the airport. 

Since our flight was at 8p.m., we ate dinner at the airport before heading back home, here’s what we ate for dinner….

Over all this trip was so memorable for both my hubby and I.  We had such a great time there, although I was sick on the fourth day of our trip.  But over all we both think this trip was excellent.  We just love spending every second with each other that once I got back from Thailand, I have already start planning our next trip to Malaysia (Sabah).  We will be going there on April 2-7 2014 for six days and 5 nights.  Yeah I can’t wait for our next Malaysia journey…..

Day Six Bangkok, Thailand (Oct 14 2013)

One more day and we will be heading home.  Today I still didn’t feel too well in the stomach.  I feel like my whole body is aching and tired.  But I still manage to walk to Central World to have lunch with my hubby and did a little shopping at Central World and Big C Super Market.  Here are some photos of what we ate and bought….

After shopping and eating, we went to have Thai body massage.  To me I prefer foot massage more than body massage.  But my hubby love body massages more.  After one hour of body massage, we had an early dinner at KFC and dessert at Swensen.  Here are some photos of what we ate…..

Since we ate dinner kind of early, we decided to buy some snack back to the hotel and eat, just in case we get hungry later on at night.  Here’s what we bought as our snack….

Day Five In Hua Hin & Bangkok, Thailand (Oct 13 2013)

Today will be our last day at Hua Hin, I have schedule the pickup service at 12 in the afternoon.  Although the night before I wasn’t feeling too well but over all I had a great time here at Hua Hin.  Love the atmosphere here, so relax and laid back.  One day in the future, I will for sure come back to Hua Hin again……

In the morning we got up early to have our last sun tanning at our private moon deck.  After taking a tan for 30mins we shower and head down to the restaurant for our last breakfast at Hua Hin.  Here’s what we had for our last day at Hua Hin…..

After breakfast, we went back to the room, pack up and rest a while before heading back to Bangkok.  The ride from Hua Hin to Bangkok was sooooo long.  This time it took us a little more than 4 hours to get back to Bangkok.  Once we arrived, we checked in first and then went to Central World to eat and shop.  Also we went to Big C supermarket.  Here are some photos of what we bought and ate…..

After shopping and eating my hubby and I went to have Thai foot massage again.  Then we bought some snack and beer back to our hotel room for some mid night snacking.  Here are some photos of our snack…..
