Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

09.08.14: See you again, Thailand

Hello, dolls! Aaaaah. I can’t believe it!!! My last BKK post! I also can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since our trip to Thailand — and it’s the weekend again…already! August is being extra good to us, we’ve been getting extra time here and there and opportunities that can change our lives. Being a go getter and having a husband who is very supportive, A and I decided to embrace this opportunity and claim it. So yeah, I do not want to speak to soon… but we feel good about this.

I know we can’t have it all, but I’ve been dreaming about going away before we kiss 2015 goodbye. I have a soul of a traveler, going to places is something that I always yearn for.

Read about my previous posts here


Last days are always weird for me. I can get attached to a place when travelling — major “sepanx” alert! It’s the thought of leaving one place, leaving the adventure, leaving the “life” of a traveler and going back to reality.


I only have 2 missions for my last day whenever I travel — to shop and have a happy lunch meal at a local restaurant.


It’s really nice to stay at Arnoma Hotel again. They did some renovations so it was a better experience for all of us when we went last year (I can’t believe I am saying “last year!”.


Where we have breakfast 🙂 Like I said before, I am always in a rush during breakfast. Traveling with 7 people means the chances of being late is 7x higher! haha

The lobby is spacious and classier! Although I must say, the rooms are a little too old for their new style. It was exactly the same as I remember it 5 years ago.



One of the reasons why I decided to stay at Arnoma Hotel again was because it’s in the heart of all of the awesome shopping centers and the food district! This great food stall is just a block away from our hotel! How amazeballs is that?


Braised Pork Leg Over Rice

A wanted to try their braised pork leg soooo bad! So I told him, for our last day we will go there — and so we did!


Fishball Soup


My parents love fishball soup, and this did not disappoint. The broth was light and flavorful making it a perfect lunch meal.


A got the braised pork leg over noodles. Noodles! Of course.


We only spent about 250 baht for 4 people…4! That’s about $8!!!!!


extra pork on the side…of course!


We ordered 2’s of everything so I just got a small bowl of noodles and was good for the day.




Oh, Bangkok!

I can’t leave Bangkok without trying the Twinnings Cafe



I mean really I just wanted to try the macarons




little babies ❤


We only had 10 minutes to spare for Twinings cause we really wanted to shop…more. It was a good experience and I would love to go back for afternoon tea with A 🙂

Why can’t be the airport in Manila be this clean and gorgeous?


King of Thailand

I really like how the people support the king so much

Why was I looking up?


Because I saw a man on the roof!


Love this!


Early dinner


I just had to…. Pad Thai in Thailand is the bomb! Nothing else outside Thailand can be as delicious. Although I must say,the best one I’ve had is from Amphawa — and 90x cheaper than this one


Gotta have my veggie fix


A’s duck noodles.. another “of course”




I can’t believe how expensive mostly everything is at the airport! Coconut outside the airport is only 10 baht!


A likes to try different bottled green tea or lemon drinks in Asia

Oh, Bangkok! I terribly miss you! I’ve been dreaming about going overseas again. We already did it this year so I am good. I am looking forward to what 2016 brings.
