about 2 weeks after my exams ... back in July (specifically July 13-17) , my mom had a conference in Chiang Mai , Thailand and she asked me to tag along . I agreed but I also wanted a separate trip to Port Dickson with my boyfriend . much to my surprise , my mom came up with an idea and told me , "eh ask Kun Yew to come to Chiang Mai with us lah , then you guys don't have to go to PD ." HAHAHA . very well played mother .. AND SO THE TRIP HAPPENED !! most of the time during this trip my mom had work events to attend to / sponsored meals so me and Kun Yew got to roam about ourselves most of the time 😁
our flight on the 13th July was in the afternoon so when we got to the hotel in Chiang Mai it was already evening time . me and my mother stayed at Le Meridien hotel and Kun Yew stayed in a hotel right opposite ours , Suriwongse Hotel .
me and my mom's place ! Kun Yew was so jealous of us because ...
this was his place . HAHAHAHHA . actually to me it's not bad !!! but he's quite scared of supernatural things so he was a bit put off by his room 😂
mom had a dinner with the rest of the people in her conference so me and Kun ate at a small restaurant near our hotels .
Kun's pineapple fried rice and my Thai basil chicken ... i don't remember the name of the place cos frankly the food was just sub-par :/
we were really lucky because our hotel is smack-right in the middle of many night markets , so we had a ball of a time exploring the local foods and souvenirs .
bought and tried this packet of coconut chips out of curiosity and surprisingly IT WAS SO AMAZINGLY GOOD . Immediately regretted that i only bought one packet instead of 20 . 😓
stepped into a food court within the night bazaar for some mango sticky rice but we were out of luck again because it sucked :((( why are we so suey .
wanted to try one of these roll-up ice-creams but they were really expensive (about 130 baht per cup) LOLOL so i just settled for photos 😂 #cheapskate
found a little place selling temporary airbrushed tattoos so me and Kun Yew went and got ourselves a pair HAHAHAH . YOLO .
quenching our thirst with honeydew and watermelon juices . i love the fruit juices in Thailand !!
on the second day , my mom left the hotel early so she gave Kun Yew her breakfast coupon .
decided to go to the gym before feasting because WHO DOESN'T LOVE HOTEL BREAKFAST BUFFETS .
after that , we showered and got ready for our day out . Kun Yew started taking some photos of me for fun and i ended up liking them so i was like "take more take more" HAHA . and we ended up having a mini photoshoot session in the hotel room 😂😂
unedited raw version of everything here - adjusted the brightness for the ones i posted on social media .
then we headed out for lunch . i know , i know ; all we do is eat sigh .. admittedly we are serious gluttons . asked the concierge at Kun Yew's hotel for suggestions of food nearby and he told us this place called Lemongrass is good . he was right though !! it is ranked #33 out of 1533 results on TripAdvisor 😻
i ordered Pad Thai , Kun ordered his usual pineapple fried rice and we shared a green curry . overall everything was super yummy !! highly recommended huhu .
it was also my first time trying pad thai (ever) and i'm so glad i was served an amazing plate that didn't leave me disappointed .
after that , me and Kun Yew went around the night markets even though it was morning because we were searching for the shop which sold the coconut chips !! Unfortunately we couldn't find it because that place was buried deep within the night markets and when we found it the night before , we were just aimlessly wandering about . 😔😔 found other shops selling different brands of coconut chips but they weren't half as good as the one i had !! i didn't wanna settle for anything less ... sigh .
walked around a bit just to discover new places and we found this open air shopping place .. which had LOTS of photo studios . HAHAHA . we asked around a few shops and one offered us a really good price for our photos taken ! since we had nothing better to do , we decided to head there the next day . stay tuned for that !
went back to the hotel for a nap and we went for dinner with my mom and the people who were attending the same conference she was .
and boy , can i just say that the conference organisers WERE VERY VERY GENEROUS TO US . all you see above is meant to be a meal for 4-5 persons but they gave one to us , each . meaning we ate 4 people's worth of food ??? omg i was so stuffed by the end of it .
pictures with their waitresses who were dressed in cultural outfits . actually we not so sampat ah , it's them who went around taking photos with people so .. might as well . HAHAHAH . in case you're wondering why i don't post photos with my mom , that's because she's a very private person and doesn't like her face on social platforms .
just as i thought it was dessert time , out came another plate of fried fish . 😣😣 aahhaha no food also complain , too much food also complain .
they had a cultural show going on halfway through the meal . and dessert was fruits and "tub tim krob" , one of my favourite Thai desserts which involves coconut milk and water chestnuts .
was super super full after this meal so we just went back and slept through the night HAHA .
would love to continue the post but it's getting a bit lengthy so will post the next part up soon , thank you for reading lovelies ! xx
