[Bangkok] PS: Overrated Restaurants


Okay, so out of the long list of restaurant recommended by Mark Weins and some other blogs, I’ve filtered it down to a few that looks absolutely legit. but… to my disappointment, some was far from what I was expecting. like Thai food that’s even worse than what I can get in HK and Malaysia. maybe even Korea. well either the vlogger/blogger doesn’t have too high standards on food, or the restaurants dropped in quality. or perhaps it’s just me. I’ve written dedicated posts for those which I think is absolutely worth a try, but to save your time and to remind myself not to go there in the future, here’s 3 restaurants which I felt had absolutely wasted my belly space/the detour for.

[Bangkok: Silom] Som Tam Jay So

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_923f copy

I’ve heard so much about how amazing food in Bangkok is. no doubt as Thai food makes it to my top 3 favourite types of cuisine. but to be very honest with you, I was a teeny weeny bit disappointed. because really, not all food are good. even those that are popular. I was expecting a majority of the food to be good because I hadn’t had much bad Thai food before.

For this trip, I’ve done a weeks worth of research mainly with Thailand’s most popular food youtuber– Mark Wiens. I used to watch his videos back when I was in Sophomore year of university. his videos are creepily addictive, but after a while after I noticed that he enjoys all food and heard that he has really low standards on food, (finds everything delicious) I kind of stopped. but interesting enough, there aren’t much food blogs/vlogs around in English that reports as well as he does. so for my first ever trip to Bangkok, I decided to try out some of the restaurants he recommended highly of.

so here’s one of the ones that I loved. I’ll also of course tell you which are the restaurants that are completely over rated. at the next post! (depends on how much you really need it!) Continue reading “[Bangkok: Silom] Som Tam Jay So”

[Thailand: Phuket] PHUKET HOTELS! and Bangla Street.

one thing you should always prepare before going to Phuket is to look up for their hotels. for approximately RM200, your hotel could be very beautiful already. and for a spectacular one, RM400 should be able to wrap everything up. but if you’re on a budget and is looking for some place clean, comfortable, cheap and convenient (the 4C’s!), I’ll recommend you White Sands Hotel. it’s a 3 star. main entrance and the lobby looks a little dodgy and the lifts ridiculously slow. BUT, I must say the rooms are really comfortable. =D. and it is just for RM100. do note that booking IN the airport is much cheaper. but you’ll have to pay on the spot of course =D.

bargain if it’s over 100. =P. yes, buying travel packages and hotels in the airport COULD be bargained. =)).


located in between THREE massage parlors, you can enjoy good thai massage for only RM20 an hour! White Sands is walking distance from the famous Bangla Street =D!  just remember to bargain. I personally like the yellow uniform one. Continue reading “[Thailand: Phuket] PHUKET HOTELS! and Bangla Street.”

[Thailand: Phuket] FantaSea

there is so many reasons why you should love FantaSea.

1. it’s name is similar with my favourite orange carbonated drink, Fanta.
2. it’s carerfool.
3. it’s very famous in Phuket.

just joking. but it’s true.

the main reasons are :

1. the FantaSea show is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. you’d be so amazed by it, trust me.
2. their buffet serves VERY DELICIOUS food. I hated international buffet’s because they always sucked. I’m very picky. BUT I LOVED THIS ONE.
3. the place is BEAUTIFUL. 600million bhat was used to build this place. how can you not visit it? it’s spectacular. and I am being very honest. they say, you’ve not fully been to Phuket if you’ve not been to FantaSea. and if you have time, go for Simon (pronounced as Simone) Cabaret to see beautiful Ah Guas. heard that it’s very good too =D.
