8 years ago / travel / bangkok / thailand

I know I visit this city so many times a year but it’s different every time I’m there!

Because the boy was going to spend the weekend fishing, I made a super last minute decision to fly up to Bangkok for the weekend to look for the cousin & partners.

I know I visit this city so many times a year but it’s different every time I’m there. On work trips, I see nothing but fabric, tall & thin models and Siam Paragon after spending hours at the office. When I’m there with the boy, we either laze our lives away at Lebua or Kempinski or stuff our faces silly with way too much food. When I was there earlier this year with the entire wedding party, we drank so much and I ended up sick for a week after that wtf.

So anyway… here’s my weekend in pictures. Most of the pictures are from my Instagram @floraisabelle (shameless plugging tyvm).



5am at Changi Airport.

It’s been a while since I’ve flown alone with Fatbear. I think the last time was when the boy was in Tioman for work and I flew there to join him for a weekend… that’s like 2 years back?



Dress from ASOS, cardi from ClubCouture (I love how it matches ANYTHING!) and my trusty LV passport holder that has been with me for years <3



Crashed at the cousin’s apartment instead of the partners’ this time round. View from his bedroom, too pretty.



First meal of the day - Four Seasons at Paragon! I think most of us will be familiar with the popular London restaurant? I’ve not been to the London branch but everybody who has been tell me it’s as good :D




I’m not a fan of duck but I like the one at Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck at Paragon Singapore but this is even better imo. The skin was crispy, meat tender, sauce flavorful.. mmmm. Not very cheap at $60 per duck but well worth every cent!



I love green tea milk anything and this is my favorite green tea frappe in the world. At Paragon too. We nua-ed here for a while before watching Lone Ranger.



Dinner was Korean BBQ at Sukishi. The boy and I always recommend this place to anybody visiting Bangkok! Too good.



Sunday brunch! Floral dress from ClubCouture <3



The cousin and I spent a good 5 hours at Kuppa at Sukhumvit Soi 16 just having brunch and desserts, tea for me, coffee for him and alternated between chatting/ gossiping and me-time moments (I love my Kindle).

This is what I used to do so much when I was living in Bangkok. I love the quaint cafes at Ekkamai & Thonglor, the bars at Nana, where I used to spend hours with my friends from all over the world who have also chosen to live in Bangkok, just talking about nothing and everything.

Started to miss my old life very much and got depressed about having to return to Singapore the next day.



Stuffed my face with more dessert even though I was absolutely bursting. But the desserts are really gooodddd. Will bring the boy here next time!



The cousin went to cut & colour his hair. I got my hair treated and got a blowout too. One thing I LOVE about Bangkok is that you can go into any hair salon and the hairstylists will most probably be able to do a good blowout skillfully with a round brush, something that is so hard to find here in Singapore. Getting a blowout is very different from styling your hair with a curling iron and I much prefer the former. But it’s a personal preference la.



Mango Sticky Rice ice cream before we called it a night.

48 hours later, I was on a plane back to Singapore more depressed than ever. The boy had to pick his very grouchy wife up from the airport who didn’t want to talk (which is a huge thing for me because I talk a bloody lot wtf) and when I did speak, it was all along the lines of “I’m depressed.” or “I don’t want to be back.”

This morning, things got a little better as I settled back into my usual routine, but I’m already thinking of heading up next weekend if the boy decides to go on yet another fishing trip :P
