Pong Gelato Coconut Ice Cream @ *Scape Orchard

Sawadeekha! We can have coconut ice cream in Bangkok to withstand the humid weather while shopping.

What can we have, which is simlar to coconut ice cream, to fight the warm tropical climate in Singapore?

Pong is to the rescue!

Situated at *Scape Orchard, Pong Gelato provides a refreshing twist to the coconut ice cream we have in Bangkok. We can add a variety of toppings with interesting sorbet gelati such as mango, passion fruit or banana to compliment with it.

Bangkok Day4 (6Aug12) : Wat In,Pirom Plaza,Wat Tramit

Finally,we reach Wat Intharawihan. The 32-meter standing Buddha is really spectacular. It really worth a visit even if you are not a Buddhist.








After praying,we went to buy ice-cream from the vendor that we saw at the gate of the temple. I ordered coconut ice cream however the uncle gave me mixed flavour. It tasted yummy.

Location: 114 Wisut Kasat Road, Banglamphu,
Old City (Rattanakosin)

 

Next up, We continue our journey to Pirom Plaza. This will be thehighlight of theBangkok trip for my hubby. I did lots of research ongun dam sets inBangkok. Pirom Plaza was recommended in most hobby forum.It said to have an under one roof of hobby shops inBangkok. We were looking forward to find some rare sets and lots of shops for us to look around.

Upon reaching, we were disappointed. The shopping mall look so deserted.Most of the shops were closed.We only saw less then 5 shops that were open.




Lucky, we managed to find 3 sets of 00 Raiser Gundam that hubby is looking for. From what i knew from him,he seldom see these three sets he bought. The shops here doesn’t entertain discount as they were selling at 50% as compared to the departmental stores in Bangkok. If you are a Gundam lover, you may wants to drop by to take a look but don’t expected prices to be alot lower then Singapore.

How to get there:Take escalator exit #1 and continue walking straight across the street, past a canal and make a left on Treemit road. Just a short walk down and you will find Wat Traimit along with several smaller temple complexes and a school.

Wat Tramit marked the end of our temple tour for the day. Since we were ahead of time, we decided to head back to the hotel for a little rest and wash up.
We didnt expected that it will be so difficult to hail a taxi in chinatown. We decided to take the tuk-tuk back to hotel. As agreed,the journey back to hotel will be 150BHT. The tuk tuk driver was nice enough to send us back to the hotel without going anywhere else. The ride was thrilling and fun.Advise for people wearing contact lens, please wear shades to protect yours eyes from all the dusts and sands.

I never get enough of shopping in bangkok.

 

We decided to visit Talad Rot Fai Vintage market. Rot Fai Market is an open air flea market set beside an abandon railroad track. It took us quite some time to located the place.

 

Directions: Cross the street from Section 2 of Chatuchuk. You will be able to see a stretch of shops selling furniture.Turn left and walk all the way straight. When you see Kamphaenghet MRT Station,follow the side of the station and walk all the way straight.You will pass by alot of shops selling water features. Soon,you will reached a premise surrounded by wire fencing. Just enter the gate,you will read Rot Fai.You may wants to follow the crowd from the MRT station.Most people will be heading towards the market.

 

We reached at around 7pm. We were kind of early as everyone seem to be busy setting up their stalls.We went around taking photos 1st. I simply love the market !

 

You will be able to find anything that vintage ranging from clothes to furniture. I love the vintage shops and cafe at the side. They had very unique vintage pieces. How i wish i own them too. Some of the stalls were operating on mini volkswagen vans.

Met up with the rest of my colleagues in the airport for checking in.Me and hubby went to grab a waffles at ” POLA ” before we bid good bye to each other. I will sure miss him lots. My sweetest hubby messaged my boss asking her to take care of me in bkk as i am super blur. Even the sms was announced out to my team but i still love it to max. One thing i love about my team,we were very close and open to everything.It more like a family den just normal working colleagues.

 

After the 2 hour flight on Thai Airway , we finally touch down to bangkok.Due to our tight schedule , we headed directly to the hotel via the airport transfer arranged.
 
I am staying in Grand Central World.Due to some errors done to our booking.Some of us get our room upgraded to one room suite.I and my room mate , YY were one of the lucky one. After we complete the check in , we cant wait to check out our room. The moment we open the door,we go “OMG , IS DAM BIG ! ” Simply love the room.It was super spacious and well-furnished. We simply cant help taking picture of the hotel room.
