Bangkok #3: Chatuchak Weekend Market & Union Mall (VLOG)



Hey there people!
I can't believe I am still here blabbing on about Bangkok. Can you believe it? Don't get me wrong, I too am starting to get a little (just a little) disinterested in these Bangkok posts. But I figured I just had to do it, otherwise all the photos I purposely took for this post and all the times I spent taking out my camera and putting it back into my bag (excuse me, really a lot of effort ok) will go to waste. Cannot 半途而废!

Click the embeded video above to watch my Bangkok Vlog on my Youtube channel! It is a rather ranty video because of my boss Jerry. Also, here are the post links for Bangkok #1 and Bangkok #2.

Urghh so here we go! Click here to jump to Union Mall!


How to get to Chatuchak Weekend Market.
This is fairly simple as they wouldn't make a highly recommended and visited tourist spot difficult to reach. All you have to do is take the train to MoChit station, get out through exit 1 and follow the crowd until you see the stalls. There you go, have fun! And again, follow the signboards because there are signboards everywhere.

As obvious as it is, it is a weekend market. It is only opened on Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 6am to 6pm. But you don't have to go at 6am because not all the stalls are opened so early. Maybe around 9am would be perfect!

Braided my hair again because the weather wasn't being very fair to me. Jerry said to me the other day, '你的帽子真的很傻叻'. He kept repeating that throughout the day. Whatever Jerr, I do what I want :P

Signboard number 1

And signboard number 2


First thing to do once you get here would be to get a map. This place is huge and has over 2000 stalls. If you are a shopaholic, you will be spending half of your day in this place. 


The food we had there wasn't nice at all and it was so overly priced. Seriously, one very normal bowl of noodle for 120 THB. I'm pretty sure it was just us that went to the wrong stall but even so, I will not be eating here anymore. Well, unless someone suggest or recommends me something they've tried. Urgh, bad experience.


What? 39 THB for shades? We bought a couple pairs and put them on immediately.

It kinda seems like the the camera only wants to f-f-f focus on me. 

Shiny 39 THB shades!



Here's a no-brainer tip for you, do not wear black! In such a weather, it really doesn't help much when you wear a black cap with a black shirt. I wasn't stupid, just trying to prove a point. Haha


This was when I started gaining weight. My face instantly expands 3 times larger. I should be blessed, right?


More massages! This time, this was only 200 THB for a 1 hour long foot massage. This should be the highlight of our trip. Having unknown but friendly strangers exerting an intense amount of force your on sore and aching muscles is a form of bliss that not everyone can understand. Please understand.

Every time we went for a massage, Jerry would say 'Aiya, I don't wanna shop liao. I want to spend all my money on massages'. Hahaha. Worth it also la hahaha no complaints at all.


How to get to Union Mall.
Most of the shopping malls around Bangkok are just outside the train station. So, to get to Union Mall, all you need to do is take the train to Phahon Yothin station. The mall is directly accessible from the station.

After spending two day's worth of mornings at Chatucak, we spent both afternoons at Union Mall. I bought over 6 pieces here. It wasn't that cheap but the quality was good for 200 THB. Definitely not something you can find back in Malaysia for this price.


This was a very comfortable mall. It felt less busy and the people are less aggressive. Situations are calmer there. We had a very long lunch at McDonalds, we literally sat there for the longest time because...

drinks are refillable.

It has been too long since I went over the counter to ask for a refill. I remember doing it when I was young. I love and miss this feeling. Huehuehue. Malaysia please.

Must eat whenever you're out of the country! Samurai pork burgers from McDonalds!

You'd think it just McDonalds, why take so many photos -.- We stayed there for super long leh hahaha

Our mode of transport throughout the trip was the train, uber and our feet. The train lines here do not have something like a Touch n Go card where you can reload every time you are out of money. You can't expect to buy ONE card with credit and be able to go through ALL the different train lines. If you buy a card, that one card can only be used on that particular train line. Very funny.

So, every time we changed a train line, we had to get out, buy another ticket for the next station then get back into the tracks. Back to the conventional way. 


Train selfie on our last train ride in Bangkok. Can you see how much my face has expanded? I mean, it is just so amazing, really! Usually, my hair always comes to save the day by covering some of it but this time its really..

Anyway, we spent our 5th day repeating what we did on the 4th day. Nothing special. All in all, I am glad I got to go on this short trip with Jerr and my parents. Some mistakes we made along the way but I feel that since it has already happened, all we can do is to leave it as a part as our beautiful memory together. How long more do we get to spend these precious moments with each other?

I hope to have a short family trip in the near future. It has been a while since all 6 of us can match out timings and go out together. I am also really fortunate to be able to spend Jerr's first experience at Thailand with him. I love when his voice gets all high pitched when he is excited. If you've met him, you'd know what I'm talking about. It really isn't that hard to miss. Hahaha

Feeling extra chirpy that I finally get to end this Bangkok travelogue. Although, there were about 5 stops I did not manage to include in my blog posts, I do hope that I can still remember the places I went to years later.




Till next time!
Eunice signing off! xx

Frizz-free hair with Moist Diane!

Hello beauties!
I said I'll be back in May, didn't I? But I also said I'd be back after my finals, which turned out to be a lie because as I am writing this, I still have to sit for the last paper of my semester in the coming days.

眼睛受感染.

I'm sorry LOL! Lack of pictures.

我的眼睛已经痛了几天. 整个眼睛红红肿肿. 痒到死!
再加上当我眨眼睛时会很痛!! Haihh.
我的朋友一直告诉我去看医生, 但我拒绝.
因为我真的很怕医生会说 'I think you should go to the hospital.'
这种感觉我已经体验过了. 的确很恐怖.

昨晚在补习时 眼睛真得太痛太痒了.
真的BEH TAHAN! 一边补习一边流眼泪.
SeeTeng & Melissa 一直叫我去看医生.
我说OKOK. 但在我心中真的没有这个计划.

补完Physics过后就补Chemistry.
我的眼睛还在受苦. 我实在受不了了!
我觉得在我眼里好像有一粒沙.

补习过后我感到很高兴! :D
一上到车, 我就很自然的说,
'Mii, can bring me to the clinic or not?' LOL!
OMG! 我真的没想到我会说这句话.

在clinic时 我感到很紧张. GRR.
突然听到那个lady叫我的名.Ahh. 我的心跳越来越快.
我走进去, 就看到那个医生对我yam xiu. 哈哈.
Relieved :D Then i felt so stupid for being so nervous.

Doctor said it can either be caused by bacteria or might be a friend that passed it to me.
Now i have two packets of tablets to take, a bottle of 眼药水 and an eye cream.
So i'm glad i went to see the doctor :P

突然想到Ahmong昨天跟我讲一句超笨的话. 想到她我都会笑! 哈哈哈! Ahmong你太可爱了.   昨天我带我的Pendrive去学校借他.

Eunice : Wei! 你弄不见我的16GB Pendrive你就知道!
Ahmong : Har?
Eunice : 什么?
Ahmong : 怎样弄不见哦? 16GB 变成 15GB?

OMG! ZHA DOU 99! 哈哈哈!
Okay. ttf…

A trip to Taman Pertanian!

Finally, i got the pictures! Muahahah! So I'll start from Friday.
FRIDAY . 18 MAC  Same old routine. Went to tuition at 6.30pm. But with a different bag. Two very important things happened that night. Both embarrassing and scary. Okay! Let's continue. I brought a big bag, all filled with my clothes. Cause i was gonna sleepover @ Teng's place. I thought bringing my pencil box to tuition will only make my bag heavier. So  I just put a pen into the pocket of my bag.
Here comes the embarrassing part!
I wanted to take my pen out. So i slipped my hand into my bag pocket without looking. I just kept digging and digging. Then  felt something long and hard. I thought it was my pen cause it sure felt like one. Once i took it out. IT WAS MY TOOTHBRUSH!! zomg wtf! Luckily no one saw what happened. So embarrassing wooi!
Went to Teng's place after tuition. We walked out in the middle of the night to buy some bread, tuna, junk food etc. for our trip the next day. We had and encounter…

All you need to know about 8excite!

Hola to all ma money-saving homies out there! It's been a while since I last talked about my crazy aunty ways of living life. If you guys are here long enough, you'd know that all my stuffs are either given to me by relatives, friends or bought from fleas or are preloved. I do splurge once in a while, but only if I find that item very worth its value or that its a super cheap deal (meaning the original price is waaaaaaay higher, my forte is about at least 40-50% hahaha). You know why? Cos I am cultured to be an aunty since a very young age. I'm sure there are many of you out there as well. Let's call us, young aunties.
It's 8excite! 
Before I go on any further, you should totes download the app on your phone. The app is basically a platform that offers crazy deals on things such as food, beauty and wellness, leisure and travelling, shopping and more. So, this post goes out to all my young aunties out there! The app and website are also all categorized neatly for ea…

4 things we did at Port Dickson!

Hello 2016 and hello earthlings!  Valentine's day just blew past and soon Chinese New Year will be coming to an end. Before you know it, the first 2 months of the year have disappeared! NOO! Time, can you please take a chill pill? I have so much to talk and rant about, I can't contain myself like wtf. 
In the beginning of the year, I went to Port Dickson with #themonsters9x. Every time we go out for trips, we would take heap loads of photos. But these days, nobody dedicates a whole album on Facebook to your trip lo. So, all you are left with are photos and memories in your hard disk waiting for you to look back at it one day and go 'AWWWW'. So ah, where else am I allowed to spam photos without being judged other than my blog, right? 

Going to Church for the first time

Hello there, beautiful creatures of the earth!For most of you who did not know, I am not religious. To add on to that, I am also very shallow in knowledge when it comes to religions. I consider myself an atheist not because I do not want to believe in any gods, but because I can't seem to do so. That being said, if one day I do feel the presence of a higher being, I wouldn't deny it or reject the fact that there is an existence of it. But as of now, this is all I have. The title may seen a little misleading as this wasn't my actual FIRST time at church. But anyway, the last time I step foot into a church was 6 years ago. So, I guess we'll just leave it at that.
In my entire life, I have been to 3 churches. And through every visit, all I felt was skeptical, a little uncomfortable and very curious. Mostly due to the fact that I only went because that Christian friend of mine asked me to. I have to admit, I wasn't very fond of the idea back then. The first church I wen…

On A Daily Basis.

Hello! It's been a while! I am a very busy girl, involuntarily of course. Apparently my schedule is always flushed with books, reports and tests. I have tests almost every weekend, consecutively until the end of my trimester. And then comes the next semester and guess what? It starts all over again! How wonderful, no? *hehe 
But honestly, you really can't blame me. UTAR have this strict policy of getting a 100% success rate on making their students suffer and they also restrict their students from having a social life. Or maybe even to be a lil more precise, a LIFE. I'm lucky to even be here right now! *blessed :P
Here's my face so you won't get bored! Or forget how I look like!  Which ever comes first. Haha
Speaking of which, I have these two guy friends that calls me 'Daily Basis'. Just because I upload pictures of myself on a daily basis. Priceless. Haha. *You know who you are. But all jokes aside, I do think that I do that too frequently. I shall do my…

Its like a call from the online shopping gods in heaven! 😍
