Bangkok Photo Diary

I left on the morning of Boxing Day, and returned just some 22 hours to the new year. I've been to Bangkok a couple of times, doing the usual touristy things like shop, eat (thai food mmmmm, we need a praying hands emoji here please). This time around, I wanted to explore something different, its cafe culture, especially since this was my first trip there after discovering the magical wonders of coffee (circa 2012). So as you can guess, most of this post will be food, coffee, me drinking coffee, me in clothes (of course), in different poses and drinking coffee.

I had their Toasty Glazed (croissant with glazed ham and bacon) which they recommended would be good paired with an iced latte so that is what I ordered. However, the reason I persisted on finding this place and dragged my whole family along (it is tucked away in a small corner of the huge mall Siam Center, disguised as a lifestyle store at first glance, so it took us a while) because I read about their signature stylish cold brews, served whiskey style here. Since the rest of my fam gang doesn't take their coffee black, I finished everything myself. And I know you'll guess my response to be "oh yes, more for me" right? Well. You are right. But by the end of 2 large cups of coffee, my hands were shaking a little and I started to doubt my ability to take sharp photos. No regrets tho.

When I was doing my trip research on the net, when I saw the architecture and decor of the place, I knew I had to visit. The cafe/bar/restaurant had a extensive menu and my sis and I had some of the fluffiest pancakes. Take a peak down below and tell me I'm not the only one that wants to take a nap on them??

and that's all from my trip, folks. 

I hope everyone had great countdown, no matter how you brought in 2015. I keep wanting to wish people "a good year" but we know a entirely pleasant year just doesn't happen, we've got more than 365 chances to mess things up. So instead, I hope you see the good in every situation you are put in and make this year a meaningful one. Happy New Year, stay safe.
