I have been waiting this trip very suffering because for the past 8 months, I see quite a number of my friends keep check in some where in Thailand especially Bangkok. Seeing them post all the food, places just makes me cross finger and hope for the day to pass faster and it was just a glimpse of eyes that now I am back and my turn to share my trip with all of you.

Of course one taking one of our famous budget airline that allow us to fly cheaply is AirAsia which I bought my ticket 10 months ago during the Zero fair promotion.

Bangkok is known as the capital of Thailand, also famous for its shopping destination, food and nightlife. (more on wikipedia)

The airport is filled with modern design and its huge, that if you walk from one end to another end is 1 km long, which I did when I flew back to Malaysia that time and walk around their duty free area. Freaking long!

the airport is just 25 km away from Bangkok city that makes it very convenient with their new express train system which just operated few months back as now with special fare promo till end of OCT they only charge 90 bhat for a single trip which is only RM 9 per way (express ride non stop) direct skip 6 stations and stop at Phetchaburi station.

On our last night at Taipei, as we hurried back from our road trip to head for next plan that Tina had book this place for us a few days before it and I am looking forward for Taipei Nightlife as we usually seen in youtube or any media that its so happening. Barcode Bar

The public transportation is so convinient that we can take the MRT to the nearest station that heading to Taipei 101 then its about 10 minutes walk from there where the club is nearby the area of Taipei 101.

Barcode

Pak had took his best dress in his luggage to be the best look for the night, purpose to take many pictures…

This is one of their latest shopping mall with its elegant classic build up.

Barcode (3)

The busy district of Taipei City for shopping area and nightlife. We reach the area around 10.30pm and the bar is located next to the purple neon light.

Barcode (4)

In this area they have 4-6 shopping malls link nearby that you can shop freely  . . .my next trip, I definately would want to spend more time heere and head to their club!

Barcode (5)

As what we have been told, Barcode is one of the finest and hottest bar in the area and reservation of a table is a must as its mostly full house during weekend. Barcode is located on the 5th floor on Neo 19 Building which have a side entrance, a lift directly up to the bar.

Remark: to enter this Bar, they have pretty strict dress code, is all guys must wear collar shirt, dress smart! Do call them up to check out more detail on the dress code!

Barcode (6)

As we were there pretty early, the bar is already all filled in . ..

Barcode (8)

I just love the interior of the bar, a porch area, read on a few review that the bartender in Barcode served very good cocktails, or they would prepare anything that you ask for you shower you with the best drink.

Barcode (7)

As late at night, the people already flock the whole area to full house, with many standing at the side. . .

Barcode (9)

The DJ deck area is pretty cool and dress smart too.

Barcode (10)

another section that they have pool table for you to chill with your friends and a big screen TV to watch your favourite football match.

Barcode (11)

Not only that, they have another large indoor balcony area with another DJ playing in it, here is a bit warmer compare to our section and they do  have another VVIP area I would say as a big guy bouncer standing infront of the entrance and block me as I do not have another chop. Can’t peek in there too as its block with a door.

Barcode (12)

The alcohol for the night that they order was Aberldy 12 years old Single Malt Scoth Whisky. The taste wise, I still prefer more on other brands like Glenmorangie, Highland Park and Macallen which is still my all time favourite.

Barcode (13)

Pak is the happy man for the night with all the leng luis which is Tina and Eva’s friend joining along. . .

After visit Wong Tai Sin and hurried back to change and meet the rest of the ppl then all of us head to Central, which is the high end shopping area. Filled with all the branded shops.
Taking train from our hotel to Central is not that long. About 15 minutes train ride. One thing I find it quite funny is, they have shoe polish stall as and not only 1 stall..there’s quite a number of it. While I was taking this pic I kena scold by the uncle talking on the hand phone shouting at me..CAnnot take pic..cannot take pic (in Cantonese). I don care la..faster take then cabut!

It was a busy Monday, and every 1 start working already and Central is also known as the main center of working district filled with all those big companies. It was lunch time, and the ppl walking around..is like siau lang..so many ppl on every where of the streets…..

We are heading to a shop which is quite popular in HK which is H&M.

I am a happy shopper came out with whole set of top, t-shirt, vest, and cap. Which I think this brand is nicer than any Top Shop we have in Malaysia. 3 Item cost me around HKD550(RM225) if in Malaysia easily exceed RM300 for the items I bought. The design that they have is even nicer.
This shop has 4 levels, basement is for guys, and for girls, you will go crazee, as the accessories is nice, the girls department lagi nice..which consist of 2 lvls and top lvls is for kids.
Remark: bring more money when you want to shop at this shop.

After shopping, we walked around the district…..

This is what we ended up doing.

Manage to find Bape Store in HK.

Impressive shop design on the interior and exterior. On that season, didnt manage to get any nice t-shirt cuz non I like.

Went to indoor area Landmark as we were quite tired and need to find a place to sit down.

Indoor shops brand.
After the rest went back to Hotel, me, yeong and kenny were very lazy to walk back to change. We already wearing the whole new outfit,so went to find a place to have a coffee.
Ended up in Cafe Landmark. Which is a porch cafe area. The pricing is yeng.
The place is full with the rich ppl crowd. Most of them you can sense like they are just not ordinary ppl which is like owner of a huge corporation and the ladies or the tai tai there also the rich man’s wife or very successful corporate ladies.

Kenny Order the Gelato Chocolate’ charge at HKD 45(if not mistaken). A very normal taste chocolate ice-cream
‘Mint Tea’ ordered by Yeong which cost at HKD 40(if not mistaken)
and mind is ‘Stella Artois HKD 55 if not mistaken.
While we were seating and chatting, then suddenly I saw how come so many ppl taking pictures of a lady walking pass by on the other side. Then I said its a Hong Kong celebrity, we guess it was Cecelia Chung, and I grab my camera and went to that area also.
Then she was at a shop cant remember what name already preventing all customer from going into that shop and was told by the guard its a private shopping and have been book by a person.
I could not follow anymore and pass my camera to Kenny as my friend Jay had reach the cafe.
