I cannot wait to blog about my Bangkok trip that I went with my old UKM friends - Clara, Jane and Carolyn. But then I remembered I did not even blog about my Bangkok trip last year. Gulp, and the OCD part of me cannot let it go so I am just going to make some brief travel posts on Bangkok 2011 before I can start on Bangkok 2012.
Last June, after I graduated, I went on few trips and the last one I went just before I started working was to Bangkok in June 2011. Actually, the main purpose of this trip was to visit my mom's cousin, who migrated to Bangkok 10 years ago with his family. Since they hardly come back to Malaysia, we decided to pay a visit to them in Bangkok.
It was a very last minute decision. So last minute that Air Asia tickets were sky rocket high - almost the same price with German Lufthasa airlines, so we decided on the latter.

After lunch, we moved on to the first touristy thing on our itinerary - visiting Siam Ocean World, which is Southeast Asia's largest aquarium, located at the basement of arguably Bangkok's most famous shopping mall, the Siam Paragon.
When people asked me about Siam Paragon, I just say it's like KL's Pavilion :)

Finally, we were all ready for dinner. It was at a Thai restaurant that I foolishly forgot to note its name but the chilli crab is to die for!
Apparently, this place is so well-known that they even brought the Japanese Prime Minister to dine here before.
