fried minced port with holy basil with fried egg stall 2

This was the last day of our trip, taking afternoon flight, so decided to rush all the way to Chatuchak market early morning after a quick breakfast, a last minute shopping for clothes, souvenir, foods and house decorating items. We wanted to have local street food the one last time for breakfast, and saw these stalls selling Pad La Pow (fried minced port with holy basil and fried egg) and cha yen opposite Pantip Plaza, right across New Petchburi Road, we were so lucky to decide trying.

We had the authentic local breakfast at a small table beside the mobile beverage stall that selling us cha yen. The dish was superb! We didn’t expect a simple local cuisine selling at roadside can be so good! If you are lucky enough to see this same lady in the picture still selling the dish at the same location, don’t hesitate, go ahead and try it out on the spot, eating it hot taste the best.

Silom Thai Cooking Class - Local Market 2

I always wanted to learn cooking local cuisine during my previous trips, as I believe that is a actually a good way to feel the local way of living. Experience local culture, trying to live their way and eat local cuisine are always my main objectives for traveling.

There are a few popular cooking classes in Bangkok, I chose Silom Thai Cooking School because it was cheap (1000 Baht per person), convenient location (68 Silom Soi 13 | Opposite Narai Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand – near MRT Silom station), good online reviews about friendly and knowledgeable staffs and fun learning experience. There are 3 classes available daily, we joined the morning class so that can visit other attractions afterwards: Read Full Article →

The Platinum Fashion Mall

In the evening, we reach Platinum Fashion Mall (222 11th Floor Petchburi Road, ThanonPetchburi, Ratchthevi, Phone: 02-121-8000) for dinner, follow by shopping. It was right next to Central World, and opposite to Pratunam Market across New Petchburi Road.

Platinum Fashion Mall is a huge building with more than 2200 shops selling clothes and accessories, definitely a paradise for shopaholic, we were so excited and wanted to spend the whole night shopping there. The shopping mall wasn’t one of the must visit attractions in my list, so I didn’t do much research about it. We realized that some shops started to close after our dinner, finding it weird but didn’t really pay much attention about it, until more and more shops are closed along the way. End up a shop owner told us that Platinum Fashion Mall closing at 2000, no one will ever expected a big shopping mall to close at 2000 everyday, at least not us…

So always make sure you call to reserve in advance to prevent disappointment.

And all I can say was the view of the sunset was spectacular!
