Browsing

Bangkok trip is all about makan on my 5th day trip, after heavy dinner at one of good restaurant that Goft recommended which is Taling Pling at Central World then now we are hunting for one of the best desert around that area called Mango Tango that operated by Hong Kee according to Goft. On the way walking there, if it wasnt raining, there are night market directly opposite Central world heading to Siam square.

Mango Tango (1)

I find that the street market here sell clothing which is pretty nice as if we do not have time to shop alot in famous JJ Market (Chatuchak Market), here would be one of the good option too as you can bargain.

Mango Tango (2)

After about 5 minutes walk from Central World, here we are, as we reach our jaw drop as the place is so little and flock by so many people ready to hunt for places in the compact shop.

Mango Tango (3)

This place got famous with alot foreginers because it got feature in some international food guide in Hong Kong and Japan. There is where how they gain the popularity and branding.

Mango Tango (4)

Cannot deny that I love the concept of the shop that show’s purely they are selling desert and only desert that they are serving. They source the best mango in Thailand and its pluck fresh. A simple decoration of the outlet make it outstanding around the neighourhood area as it is very hard for you to miss the shop that is well light up.

Mango Tango (6)

Mango Tango (7)

Mango Tango (8)

I guess these are their best seller therefore put at the counter

Mango Tango (9)

We are amaze how fast this worker cut on the mango and look so pro .. . We were just drooling like a small kid looking at candy when me, Steven and Tatt saw the mango how yellowish and how sweet it is going to taste like. .

Mango Tango (5)

Annie always love to promote how  god the food is and this round with menu, I guess she will be a good food ambassor. Too bad I was not allow to post her eating pose. Saliva will drop just by seeing her tam chiak face (the way she eat). The cute menu also in Mango shape and the have selected menu for you to choose from and we have let the desicion for Goft again to go for our menu.

Mango Tango (10)

Getting ready with my spoon to attack on the desert yet the funny thing is that I have heard An Apple a day keeps the doc away and now, its A Mango a Day keeps the Doc away . .kekeke I sure do not mind by having lots of sweet aromatic mango. . .

As we were super full from dinner, and now its very hard for us to resist to say NO to deserts after looking on how the way they do it and die die also must try quite few. Our initial plan was order 2-3 to share and the end up result every one having one portion. ūüėÄ

Mango Tango (11)

Mango Sticky rice is just so opposite version of what we have in Malaysia and the servings there as I meant, that in Malaysia our sticky rice is a huge chink of it with a few slices of mango and in Mango Tango is a huge big ass mango with small scoop of sticky rice. Its served warm, soft and very aromatic with their superb coconut milk as we love it so much on the taste and pair with the smooth sweet mango is just perfect.

Mango Tango (12)

Mango Tango (13)

Do not know what to choose get Mango Tango Signature dessert and consists of a half nicely cut mango in cubes, with a side of mango pudding topped with whipped cream and a ball of mango sorbet. A perfect combination to try all version in their outlet.

Mango Tango (14)

Mango Delight comes with a mixture of fruits base, kiwi, mango, honeydew, aloe verra, watermelon and some other ingredient, and all the fruits are fresh and sweet.

Mango Tango (15)

Mango Smothie is super good,very smooth, easy to drink yet the mango is so aromatic like drinking pure mango juice.

Mango Tango (16)

Mango Tango (17)

all of us having great time with our desert and this is one of Goft’s fav drink .

Mango Tango (18)

One thing I regreted that I did not buy enough is their Sensational Mango Tango Desert РPreserved Fruits. One of the best I have eaten so far as they sell it in lose pack or economy pack that comes in a pack of 3 boxes. As for  now, whenver my friend go to Bangkok, I will try to ask them tapau this back for me .. Hehehe .. Once you eat it, its addictive even my parents finish this whole pack on the night itself.

Dry, not too sweet, as its like eating pure mango in another version. Recommended to get at least 2 pack.

Mango Tango (19)

Here we are, our desert hunter and Collen always busy with her food, that is how tam chiak she is whenever taking pictures. ūüėÄ

As for last say, any order in the menu, surely will satisfy your crave on desert as all also pretty good!

If you do go Bangkok in the area of famous shopping districk Central World that area, please do not miss this super good yet delicious Mango desert, as you would not regret even though its a bit hard to find as you have to walk thru some alley turn right turn left.

Highly Recommended if you love or do not like desert.!!!!

They have 4 branch in Bangkok check out their website for other branches location : www.mymangotango.com

I just wish ¬†Malaysia have such a good desert shop. The set back is our mango is so exp and import in even worst. I guess I shall keep my mango crave till next holiday . . ūüôĀ

On my previous entry I blog on another hotel we stayed in White Palace Hotel and head to famous weekend Chatuchak market. . .(click here). In our Bangkok Trip I keep mentioning our driver, and now please let me introduce you our driver which I have been talking about. . .

day 4 (1)

He do not really know how to speak or listen English but my friend Tatt can still talk to him by using alot body and sign language, its funny to see how both of them talk and best of all, this guy understand . .

day 4 (2)

A very clean and cosy car that his car also won a few awards that he send into competition for the street car exhibition. He is only available during the weekend, as he tour people around as extra income on weekend. Usually he is fully book by the locals and if you would like to engage him, best is to find some one that can speak Thai to him. If you were to call him directly, you will be finding it hard to communicate.

day 4 (3)

Coming to Bangkok besides girls doing heavy shopping or shop till drop, it would never be perfect if you do not do their Massage. Its a combination not complete if you step into Bangkok whereby for us massage is a must which is what they are famous for. Thai Massage. Goft introduce this place to us Urban Retreat which is very well know to many international tourist for their good service and massage.

I asked Goft ‘ Weiii..y so high class, not the normal shop that on the streets?’ she answered she just wan us to enjoy the best and its more well trained, those on the road site later break your bone then you know. We all just laughed~

And of course the best you have to pay different pricing. Those little shop on the streets can go as cheap as RM30 or 300 bhat for 2 hours massage, as this place is more upclass and the pricing would be double form those little shop. We choose our package ‘Thai Massage with Herbal Ball’ cost us 900 Bhat = RM 90 which the pricing is quite¬†similar¬†to Malaysia already. (for more pricing on packages click here)

day 4 (4)

When you went in, you will be greeted by their friendly staff at the reception and its extremly full on that day. Luckily Goft help us do booking and we saw alot of walking in customer were turn away because its full house for whole day.

day 4 (5)

all of us reach this place were already very tired and indeed a massage is a MUST now! Nancy just cant wait to hit into the room and enjoy the massage as you see her look . .  half dead~ keke

day 4 (6)

We were first brought to this place to wash our feet clean . .

day 4 (8)

please ignore my hairy legs. .

day 4 (7)

Then the masseur will lead you to respective room and for couples do not worry, they have lots of couple room or room in pair ..

day 4 (9)

So for this round me and Steven will be in the same room . .

day 4 (10)

and we have to change into their outfit.. Thai Style . .:D. I was very tired and doze off while they were doing massage for me and of course not fully asleep and I just love how they twist and turn on my body after the whole massage I felt so loose and light now. Energetic back and ready to hunt for more food!

No wonder Goft wanted to bring us here, a recommended Massage place if you do visit Bangkok.

They have 3 location in total and all are located easy acess of public transportation.

If I am not mistaken – this outlet is the location of BTS Phrom Phong

BTS Phrom Phong Branch: +66(0)2204 1042-3

Phrom Chai Branch: +66(0)2204 2008-9

Asoke Branch: +66(0)2229 4701-3

For all location of the 3 outlet (click here)

day 4 (11)

After that head back to hotel area to change and do some street walk ..  Our Hotel is White Palace Bangkok (to view click here). Conveniently right outside our hotel there are alot of things to see and buy as it hit about 6pm it will be night market which we do not have a chance to pay a visit cuz we are in hectic schedule . .

day 4 (13)

Taking a short stroll along the streets to look for transport to head to Paragon to meet Goft for dinner. .

day 4 (12)

One thing that Tatt cant stand is he keep bugging me to take the picture of the heavy wiring located on top of the pole. .  he said that this is so outdate that most of these cable wire are under ground and not still put up there. Its very dangerous ..

day 4 (17)

The biggest shirt I have come accross is only XXXL. .  and for the first time we seen 20 XL and this is how big the shirt is. So in Bangkok if you are very big in size, this area have what to offer you . . I think this shirt can fit 6 of us perfectly. .

day 4 (18)

Our hotel is just down the street then you can see Baiyoke Hotel which is another nice hotel that my friend recommend to stay.

day 4 (19)

In Bangkok, the most famous mode of short distance transportation is called Tuk Tuk a mini bike with 3 wheels that can fit max 4 small size person in it . .

day 4 (20)

Tuk Tuk that attracted many tourist to ride on it but actually there is not much difference comparing you taking Taxi. If you would like to experience it, its good to try out . .

But just beware that these Tuk Tuk know that you are foreigners or tourist they will try to rip you apart on the fare. Some are very ridiculous especially those Tuk Tuk around this area. We board on the transport and they insist us to visit a few tourist destination spot as told us its on the way, and we look on to our map its heading different way and we told them where got in the way, the place we want to go turn left, and you want to turn right!!! no no no.. please take us to the place we want to go. .  Yet they still insist we should visit the place and we ask how much is the fare he mention a ridiculous price. We said don wan can drop us some where and he just drop us right on the spot and went off . . .

So just beware on those Tuk Tuk  . . .as some places are quite okay like those in China Town. . .

Our Bangkok trip – After we return from Pattaya stay over the night, we hurried and check into our next hotel White Palace Bangkok, which is located on the other side of Bangkok which is nearer to Platinum mall and Chatuchak Market area. .

chatuchak (6)

This hotel was recommended by my friend as she previously stayed here that with cheap price and strategic location. Right outside this hotel there is a very long night market which we have miss it due to insufficient time.

chatuchak (5)

Hotel is pretty decent which is simple and nice that is hidden behind some housing and office area. . .

chatuchak (1)

A simple double room, neat and clean is something that we are looking for as most of the time we will be out and just need a place to rest. If I am not mistaken this place we paid about RM120 per night book over Agoda.

chatuchak (2)

White Palace Bangkok –¬†http://www.whitepalacebangkok.com/

Location:
40 Soi Petchburi 15 (Somprasong 3), Phayathai
Rajtavee Bangkok 10400, Thailand

Tel: 66 (0) 2255 2701

Right after we throw all our luggage into the hotel room, we head to one of the most anticipated or well known or all my friend said its a must go market. The locals call them J.J market.

 

chatuchak (7)

All getting ready, hat ready, leg ready, and the most important is get ready your pocket as you will spend alot in this world famous or South East Asia biggest weekend market. This place is known as Chatuchak Market as I said the locals call it JJ Market.

Back to 56 years ago in 1978 ¬†JatuJak Market happen whereby a goverment policy to transform the Royal Plaza or “Sanam Luang” (Royal Park) into a leisure ground. As from then the market evolve from the name of Pahonyothin Market to then later in 1987 change to Jatujak Market.

Its so well known that, if you come to Bangkok and did not come to Chatuchak market its like having sex never cum! Not complete.

chatuchak (8)

Why is that so my friend said its a must visit market as it host more than 8,000 stores selling variety of items in this market. Products ranging from Street food, hard to find antique and some people rate this market as the imported version on Portobello Market in England. If you are a bargain hunter, love to bargain, this is certainly one of the market MUST VISIT by you as it offer alot of items in low price and divided into 8 product zone.

chatuchak (38)

This place is really huge, and I mean its huge! My friend often advice me be there early as you will never finish walking and I critise them back, are you sure its that big. When I am there only I realise how big it is and by looking at the map, my Jaw Dropped!

This is how big this market is, and you see the little lining in between the stalls, it indicates the stalls in between.

chatuchak (9)

As we arrive while Goft is waiting for us in the market to bring us a hidden gem inside this market itself that is one of her favourite stall that she seldom miss whenever she is here.

chatuchak (10)

There is a little ally that host many of this little food stalls and be sure you know how to find your best food under this one HOT roof! walking in here is burning and we are sweating non stop.

chatuchak (11)

Its a place also not many locals know about it as only the regulars know~ Its a small little stall that runs by husband and wife.

chatuchak (12)

According to Goft, if you want to look for this place, just print this picture out as its with the name of the stall in Thai that I do not know how to read and translate. . ūüėÄ

chatuchak (13)

Goft told me that this chef and his wife are both MBA holder and hold quite a high position in a company and as he loves to cook, he jus operate this stall just over the weekend also to look for some extra cash.

chatuchak (14)

chatuchak (15)

chatuchak (16)

If you ask me when I am here, I will just point what ever pictures they have on the wall luckily we have Goft that had help us to order all the food.

chatuchak (17)

All are very hungry, sweating, and found ourselves like in oven.  To hunt for good food its not always easy especially good local street food.

chatuchak (18)

chatuchak (19)

chatuchak (20)_resize

When we saw the price in the menu, its obviously cheap and cant be said too much with its location too.

chatuchak (31)

Prawn

chatuchak (32)

All the food that she help us order, its all damm good even this ommelet, well fried not too oily and its just perfect to go along with rice.

Its one of the best authentic local food we had so far and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me to those of you that are visiting Chatuchak Market!

chatuchak (33)

The challenge is how do you locate this stall as its very easy. After you see this Kamphaeng Phet MRT station turn to your right which you will see

chatuchak (34)

KarmaKamet Secret World as the stall is located this section! Ask anyone in there they should know when you show them that picture.

chatuchak (36)

There are a few ways to come to Chatucak Market. One of the easiest way is by MRT as Bangkok is famous for its traffic condition therefore take MRT and stop at this station –¬†Kamphaeng Phet as its just located direct below the market. Right inside the station there is a Tourist Information Center that will provide all the traveling details and convenience services, meeting and resting place along JJ Market.

chatuchak (37)

chatuchak (35)

As what Goft advice us where to meet and which landmark to look far as this place is massive huge that will get lost easily. .. So always located back this station then she can located back us~

chatuchak (39)

So let the walk and hunt begin! The super huge market where farmers and craftsmen carefully selected their agricultural and handmade products out to become a wholesale.

chatuchak (40)

of course must take lots of pictures.. .

chatuchak (41)

chatuchak (42)

In the ally, the its not a huge walkway as there are a few people standing there and stare at some of the items it will start to create human traffic jam around that area. Its narrow that if you want to pass you have to squeeze through.

chatuchak (43)

chatuchak (44)

As the market evolve too, it has now have street performer to make the whole market even more lifely~ Music, Food, and enjoying your shopping is something very hard to resist or its near perfect.

chatuchak (58)

chatuchak (59)

chatuchak (45)

chatuchak (46)

This coconut desert stall is swamp by alot of people and we decided to join the crowd.

chatuchak (47)

You can choose to have young coconut which is very refreshing under this hot weather yet something tell us to try something better. ..

chatuchak (48)

Which is this Coconut Ice Cream Desert.

chatuchak (49)

Shave coconut slice  .. .

chatuchak (50)

Top with a scoop of coconut ice cream. . .

chatuchak (51)

Then add with some peanuts, nata decoco and  some other ingredients. .

chatuchak (52)

chatuchak (53)

This is the end product. .!!! Its not too sweet yet can bite small tiny slices of coconut in the ice cream, very aromatic not too milky and combine the whole sensation under this hot weather, what could you ask for! I ended up having 3 of this by myself! Damm good!! –Highly Recommended!

chatuchak (54)

chatuchak (55)

chatuchak (56)

Malaysia we have teh tarik and Bangkok too,

chatuchak (57)

they are more aggresive as they pull the tea with 2 pot at one go from very high till very low. . The tea is so sweet till I can only manage 2 sip and I have throw this whole thing away. Their sweetness level is like our normal teh tarik with double shot sugar!

chatuchak (60)

I do not know what is this but according to Goft its one of the most famous snacks around the area. I do not know how to enjoy this only manage one bite, yet Nancy and Collen like it. . .

chatuchak (61)

Tatt need alot of energy and he went to buy whole box of mini egg. *faint! No one wanted to help him finish it and after lots of forcing, we all decided to help.

When you come to Bangkok, Chatuchak is one of a must visit place, of course you have to plan your trip as the market only open on weekend from 10am – 5pm.

More information on public transportation please click here 

Right after floating market, and before hitting to Pattaya Night Life, Nancy is the one that actually came to Bangkok many times and she highly recommend us to visit this restaurant which is made of condom. . YES!! you heard it right..Condom, as actually its some of the mannequin that filled with full condom decoration like clothes and others. Bangkok Trip.

pattaya part 4 (1)

In the first plan, we are suppose to head to Condom & Cabbage, Bangkok as we have very tight schedule so we slide it and decided for Condom & Cabbage Pattaya instead as the have totally different environment compare to the one in Bangkok.

Let me tell you why Nancy highly recommend this restaurant is because of a reason. This restaurant promotes health and safety use of condom in sex life by fun and amusing manner and not only that as ALL the proceeds from the restaurants are used to fund the social development programs of PDA. So, that is why so Nancy insist us to come.

pattaya part 4 (2)

One thing which is very different compare to Bangkok that to head to the restaurant, you have to walk thru this mini garden trail for 2 minutes that is dimly lit up and its fun to have something different where by usually the restaurant you go, is right at your door step!

pattaya part 4 (3)

You will go thru a few sections of the garden till you reach this huge and spacious Tropical Jungle area as actual fact, this restaurant is sharing a garden with this beautiful resort.

pattaya part 4 (4)

So as you reach, you will be greeted by this 3 person wearing condom all over their body.

pattaya part 4 (5)

pattaya part 4 (6)

pattaya part 4 (7)

Then as the waitress guide us to the main dining area, we are suprise on how big this area is, as this section is on the upper deck of the hill side where by you can choose to be on top of the hill that over look the sea or head down there next to the sea . . .

pattaya part 4 (8)

Of course we choose head down there to be next to the sea . . and it seems pretty occupied. Its really a huge restaurant on a jungle style.

pattaya part 4 (9)

pattaya part 4 (10)

As we hike down, there are a few more tiers like another 2-3 more sections besides the upper deck.

pattaya part 4 (11)

All of us tired + hungry + sticky and grateful to be seated down at the moment at this beautiful area. One thing we find that, if you come here around sunset, I am very sure that its going to be a very beautiful place. If you do have a chance to stop by here, please do so during sun set and tell me how it feels. . ūüėÄ

pattaya part 4 (12)_resize

You will be very surprise on the variety of the menu they are offering and not only that, its the pricing the most important and we thought that we might got ripe off in such a pleasant dining ambiance but we are wrong!!!

pattaya part 4 (13)

This fried prawn fritters are perfect, crispy on inside out and the prawns are very fresh. Dip it with the thai chili sauce to make it more perfect.

pattaya part 4 (14)

pattaya part 4 (15)

Mix Veggie that are in plain fried yet it goes along very well with white rice. Simple and aromatic!

pattaya part 4 (16)

Green Curry Prawn, as the prawn is fresh with solid in meat and a bit coconut milky that is not too spicy, mild and the taste is totally very different from the one available in Malaysia as theirs is a bit sweet too, Mix with rice make it flood, perfect!

pattaya part 4 (17)

In Thailand of course you must not miss Tomyam but in this restaurant we tried out 2 different version of tomyam, one which is similiar like Malaysia Style Spicy tomyam (Tomyam Talay) @ @ 200 bhat. Its cook to perfection that its spicy, abit sour and sweet in taste because of the seafood that cook along.

pattaya part 4 (18)

To compare of course this Tomyam Prawn @ 200 bhat, stoods out to be better as the clear version of tomyam which lean towards more on sour spicy that the after taste kicks in after you drink it which is a bit more challenging and very nice in taste!

pattaya part 4 (19)

I always love Phad Thai Gung Sod @ 90 bhat, therefore come here also will not miss, fried with wok hei, noodles are quite sticky and squeeze along with lime and mix everything together, is how the way they eat it. Taste Fairly good but it leans towards a bit more on the sweet side.

pattaya part 4 (20)

 

pattaya part 4 (21)

Basil Chicken is another great dish that cook till the flavor absorb to the meat, which is not too dry, with the sauce that they use that  pairs very well with the flavor. I don like Basil but this taste pretty good.

pattaya part 4 (22)

Pandan chicken is nothing special just that the sauce is very good, sweet in the first taste spicy at the end!

pattaya part 4 (23)

This is another challenging dish, looks simple but use the pork and dip along with that bowl of sauce, super spicy as you do not feel it at first as after a few more pieces of the meat with the sauce, your whole tongue gets numb, as the challenge is we just cant stop eating, as it taste sooooo good!

pattaya part 4 (24)

Stir Fried Chicken with nut and dry chili, something also not to be miss.

One thing, as we are super full from so many dishes and the total bills comes to about 2236 bhat which surprise us alot! Its a cheap bill we would say. Food here is good, and well price, so do not miss if you do come to Pattaya!

pattaya part 4 (25)

As we walking out, we love the sign that place around the garden’s . . Just suitable to be use locally .. ūüėÄ

Some people rate this street as one of the most exciting street to look for fun that with 1000 meter long of fun street as besides bar there are also places like Gogo Bars and of course hostesses. You will surely find your fun here.

pattaya part 4 (38)

I would rate this is one of the best place for night life in Thailand, as I have visited nightlife in Phuket, Hatyai and Bangkok and I rate this the best. You should probably spend about 3 days 2 nights here itself!

pattaya part 4 (35)

A Go GO bar.. means what? you should drop by here to find out yourself~

pattaya part 4 (46)

See how strong these women can do? Well, a piece of advice from my friend that, if you hit to any bars in Pattaya especially girls, do not take drinks or beer from strangers as chances of the drink got spike is 90%. Well, if you want to have a fun memory adventure in Pattaya, you can try that . .:p

pattaya part 4 (47)_resize

By Looking in the web that our hotel have a very nice scenery during sun rise as  I miss out the sunrise I just went up to take a quick glimpse of it. . The view up here is just superb!

So the driver told us that this temple is very nice and decided to drop us here for a quick prayer and we did also with some donations.

Further inside the city its like super long beach covers along with night entertainment which I will put inside another posting (so do watch out)

Last time I remember I came accross a blog that there is a new mall opening and with huge open air concept area for F&B outlets by the beach side facing the sea and I could not remember what is that mall called already. Regreted didnt key it down and we ended up in this new mall Central Festival at Pattaya which is the Largest beachfront lifestyle mall Shopping Mall in Asia.

Very nice Interior and well design mall, easy to walk around ..

bkk day 3 (6)

Best of all they have like indoor weekend market style ..

bkk day 3 (7)

After a quick walk, we were very hungry and head out, manage to peek outside the mall that they have a street of kopitiam style food and we quickly head there to hunt for food. There are about 9 stalls side by side and one of the stalls that attracted us in is PORK LEG!

bkk day 3 (8)

They are hot, thirsty and hungry . .

bkk day 3 (9)

this is the super star that makes us choose this stall that comes to Thai must not miss Pork Leg

bkk day 3 (10)

This is the most sinfull of all yet one of the best!!!

bkk day 3 (11)

we ordered one stripe of fried pork as I choose myself what part I wanted and its super crispy, the meat is soft and dip along with their own homemade sauce is superb! A MUST HAVE!

bkk day 3 (12)

Then followed by Pork leg, braised till meat is soft, pork skin near to melt in mouth and add in their own gravy to make it more moist.

bkk day 3 (13)

Tomyam seafood as we find that the different taste of Pattaya cooking style and Bangkok cooking style as Pattaya taste of soup heading  more sweet and sour not too spicy. .

bkk day 3 (15)

Tomyam pork definitely taste much better compare to the seafood one.

bkk day 3 (14)

Fried Omelet that is drench in oil yet very aromatic and we add on a bit chili sauce to perfected it. .It was indeed a satisfying meal . .

bkk day 3 (16)

As everyone is very satisfied now, we head to the beach area to take a peak as we have very limited time in Pattaya .. .

bkk day 3 (17)

Feels like I am at Batu Ferringi just that they have lots of beach umbrella side by side .. .

One of the thing I realize is that this little desert stall is every where in Bangkok and also even in Pattaya, Ice Monster, that I often saw alot people queuing for it. As this round we nearly melt from the weather outside, we decided to try out by enjoying the mall air condition.

Under customize section, you can get to choose the ice and toppings you want as we are lazy to choose we choose the one in the menu.

Overall, we didnt really like the desert as find it a bit too sweet to our liking, very milky and the texture is more like Ice Kacang ice based top with some fruits and milk/ chocolate syrup.

When you visit Bangkok, one of the place that you must go is their Floating Market. Previously we did have in plan to visit Bangkok Floating Market and it was scrap because that we are heading to Pattaya, they have another one too, but the floating market in Pattaya is man made market while the one in Bangkok is the original and natural place.

After we had our lovely breakfast at famous French Bakery (click here) then head to this floating market. This post is more picture than write up . ..
