Bangkok Eat & Drink V1

7-Eleven. Available at every single corner.
The most frequent stall i visited during the trip. Beers range from 24 bht - 40 bht
Chang, Singha light, Chang Light, Leo Beer - 24 bht
Singha - 30 - 35 bht
Heineken - 38 bht
I never looked for any other beers that's higher than 30 bht price tag.
Mind you though, no beers available after midnight. So, stock up before the clock hits 12.

All stall food was stumbled upon by luck. Don't worry too much about the language barrier. Just point & order. Most of them cost between 25 - 30 bht only. Unlimited supply of chili flakes, garlic chili, prawn sauce.

I got mine from T.A.T. (open from 7am - 11pm)

Street along Phetchaburi (pronouced Phetburi), Pratunam District.
Only manage to take 2 before their closing time. Which is 9pm.
Manage to browse Pratunam Complex but nothing amazing there.
So headed to 7-11 to get beers, only to realize it's about RM3 per bottle/can.

The next day, we accidentaly stumbled upon Pratunam Wholesale Market.
There's a shortcut from Petburi Soi 19 & 21 (Soi - Street/Jalan). Find all the clothes & apparel you need at wholesale price. This is the place where other the 'Chatuchak' & 'Suan Lum Night Bazaar' take their stock from. From this big market, you can see Baiyoke Tower as well.

From there then we headed to MBK Center, the largest shopping mall near Silom. Silom it's like a shopping district la, like our Sg. Wang area.
Nearby MBK there's others like Siam Center, Siam Square (pronounce Siam Se-kue),
Siam Paragon & Siam Discovery Center (branded stuff)
Easily reachable by BTS (BTS - LRT) @ National Stadium Station / Siam Station.

In MBK, there's a very big DVD store where you can find EVERY SINGLE DVD titles. There's even a book with PRIDE color on it.

And when there's no stock / or you buy alot, they will send it to your address within 24 hours.
So head there early if you plan to bring back some copies of DVD. (only worth it if for sure you can't find those titles here in KL, JB, Penang)
The DVDs pricing ain't as low as here.

Thai Style Shirt: 120 bht
Hole Free Earring: 25 bht
Toys: 60 bht
Candle Holder/Tray: 300 bht

Aha. Khao San Road. A place for 'Fareng' (Quai Lows). All marked up price items. A road just like our Petaling St. Cheap motels, backpackers are all located around.
There's even a muay thai gym nearby and all i see are farengs putting RM40 for 3 hours of class. OMG. But most of the trainers do speak fair english.
And there's a airport coach station (non aircondition) located here. 100 bht per head.

(Note: -Not worth if you are not travelling alone, as you can easily get to the airport between 250 bht - MAX 400 bht, depending on your negotitation skills.)

*more to come tomorrow, will compile guide whenever i can. :)

Restaurant Teo Chew Meng

Teo Chew Meng Seafood Noodle.

Famous for Mee Suah (or in canto we call in Min Seen). Located @ SS14 facing highway.
Branch @ ss2/30 & Menjarala 8/62A

Pictured below are: Sharkfin Mee Suah (RM10), ***Seafood Fried Rice(RM8) & 3 Taste Oyster (RM12). Accompanied by Green Tea (RM1.50) that looked really like Air Tebu. When i took a sip with expectation of air tebu sweetness, only to realize i ordered green tea.

If you not a big eater, the 1 pax (RM10) sharkfin mee suah is just enough with 1 extra order. They have sweet sour prawn, Kerabu Mango, and i've forgotten the rest.

Note, this is a non smoking restaurant, so leave your ciggy in the car.

*** Recommended Seafood Fried Rice. Full of taste and prawn.
