Bangkok - Chatuchak Weekend Market

If you still remember, about a while ago, we did visited Bangkok. It was a last minute trip after I decided to resign my job for other opportunity.

One of the places we visited in Bangkok was the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Yes, it is the largest market in Bangkok, and it opens only on weekends, which is Saturdays and Sundays.

Chatuchak Market is accessible by the MRT.

The ladies a.k.a. shopping queens, Baby, Nini and Poh Eng were ready to shop!

What do they sell in Chatuchak Weekend Market? Basically they sell a very wide range of products. There are clothings..,

home decor..,

footwear.., clothings.., bags.., souvinirs.., blah blah blah...

What else do they sell in the market?

One of the key uniqueness about the market is, they do sell pets.

There are puppies..,

kittens.., hamsters.., rabbits.., animal food etc.

After shopping for hours in the market, we decided to have our lunch at one of the hawker stalls that sell Thai's local food, the braised chicken noodle soup.

It was very delicious! The environment was not very clean, though.

We headed back to the hotel after spending a few hours in the market. It did caused some damage to our wallets, hehe.

Quick Updates from YS

SORRY!!! for missing in action for so long..

MM has been blaming me for ignoring our blog so just a quick update to everyone...

I have been very busy lately with a lot of things, work, home renovations, shopping for our room and heck, I have farewell gatherings to attend as well, yes, I changed job (again) and this time I'm going to change my career goal a little bit to become a contractor. After working in a few companies for the past few years, I kinda like give up in playing the corporate games and climbing up the career ladder in the corporate world. Instead, I would like to change my goal a little bit so I decided to become a contractor instead. I got a 4 years contract from a reputable US based retailer and i will be part of their integration team and be responsible to deliver some mission critical integration projects using webMethods.., not sure about the requirements yet but surely it would be a challenging one. Feel energetic inside and ready to kick ass in the new company! Finger crossed for me and wish me luck please!!! The package??? Many of my friends did asked me the same question but I'm not going to reveal it here but I promise I will not spoil the IT market..;)
Talking about wedding preparation, haven't been really prepare for it except I have started to renovate my room in my home town. Has finished some shopping recently too and the total damage is massive, gotta work harder to heal my wound.. :( but thanks to MM for being so supportive and her great taste in choosing a furniture....;)

All right, last but not least..happy dumpling festival everyone and will going to blog about our trip to Perth soon and this is going to present by....MM (hehe).

Perth - Caversham Wildlife Park

To start of with our trip to Perth, we would like to blog about something boring but yet, it is one of the must-do/see things in Australia. That's to visit the Australia wildlife like Koalas and Kangaroos.

So, we visited one of the wildlife Park in Perth, that is the Caversham Wildlife Park.

Welcome to Caversham Wildlife Park. Entry fee to the park is AUD22.00. Rather pricey huh!

There was a farm show. Yeah, and it started of with sheep Sheering demonstration.

The it was show time for kids - baby sheep feeding.

YY tried cow milking too, Mr. Hubby and Sunny find it is a lil' yucky to milk the cow. Duhh -_-"

We also met up with Ms. Wombat in the park. She is Sunny's all-time favourite Australian animal, hehe..

There were Tasmanian Devils, they are not cute at all -_-"

Hm... we have no idea what reptile is it.

One very good thing about Caversham Wildlife park is visitors are allowed to take a walk through the kangaroo enclosure. Visitors are allowed to feed the kangaroos too.

Mr. Hubby does not think they are cute, duh.

Aha! it Koala petting time. She is a cute little koala named Sean. Isn't she cute?!

Aww, koalas are always my favourite Australia animal! *Blush*

Hmm that's pretty much about our visit to the wildlife park. We'll blog more about our trip in the next entry.
