Brace yourselves...

...this is going to be a long one....

Another CONGRATULATIONS is due for 4 lovely ladies (and mummies) who have started up Scrappin Kids. I cant wait for their challenges to start. Its great motivation sometimes when you're stuck in a rut and best of all is that you can win RAKS!!

Ok, so I guess its about time I told you guys about my BKK trip eh? Our flight was scheduled to arrive in BKK at midnight (bear in mind they're an hour behind us so thats like 1am Brunei time) and we encountered turbulence and delays cos of the weather so I got a bit sick towards the end of the flight. After we landed, we had to wait AGES for a docking bay and didnt get to the hotel til about 2am+. Had to have supper cos I was starving from what I'd lost on the plane before falling into bed. Btw, check out our room...


not bad for a 3* hotel

Woke up late the next morning (naturally) and headed out to Siam Sq for M2 Sukiyaki and hit the shops thereafter. H showed me his usual haunts esp the jeans shop and we succumbed to the weight of our shopping bags and tired feet by 4pm+. H lazed around and had beer while I had a foot massage while waiting for Rudy to finish work. Dinner was this great German restaurant we found near our hotel with sausages and pork knuckle...most important of all was this....



More beer and cocktails ensued at Zanzibar while waiting for my cousin to join us then we moved on to BEDS....eventually 2 people ended up very drunk...*hint*one of them wasnt on holiday :p


made a friend


so who do you think was drunk?

H was awoken from drunken slumber the next morning and I insisted on Subway for breakfast. We then went on to pay our respects to the 4-face Buddha before more shopping and lunch at the Outback Steakhouse. More shopping then back to the hotel for Thai massages and we met up with Rudy for dinner afterwards. The guys went on to footy and drinks after that while I had a quiet night. Breakfast was in the hotel and we left for the airport after that.

I didnt make it to Chatuchak as with our limited time, we didnt venture out far but I found scrapping supplies in Paragon Dept Store....



...and I managed to get something each for my family. As for myself, it was just a couple of jeans, a few tops, a handbag and lots of yummy food. Would be great to go back there again so I'm looking forward to IS' hen night next year!

Btw, remember my Scrapsidaisy package...they gave me some little paper flowers and alpha sticker freebies too *grinz*



I think my supplies are overflowing already...really need to use them up...sigh...well, H is off to Seria for bball tonite so maybe its a good chance for me catch up with some scrapping...so tired tho :(

I didnt realise you were back already ! Sounds like a great time in BKK ! very short tho' ! lol ! I see Paragon Dept store seems to have a little bit more variety for the scrapbooking supplies range !

You didnt go to the upper floor where the bedding section is ? The ribbons & trim is next to it !
