My First Bangkok Food Trip

I love Bangkok, Thailand despite its close resemblance to Philippines' humid weather. I love the culture, the shopping centers, the cheap beers, and most of all, I love the FOOD. I could eat Thai food forever. Nom nom.

Say hello to the evil Pad Thai

We arrived BKK at midnight and checked-in at around 1am in Green HouseKhaosan. After unpacking our stuff, I invited my friend Sheila to go out for a late dinner. Ian, Lai, and Roi were too tired to go out so they already slept. WHATTALOSE.

Walking along the streets, we saw a Pad Thai stall and decided to try it out. Upon placing our order for one Chicken Pad Thai (BT60), a weird conversation started:

Vendor: Mild or Spicy?
Sheila and I  (in gleeful unison): SPICY!
Vendor: Are you sure, spicy?
Sheila and I: Yes!

Chuckling, the vendor proceeded in making our order. I was surprised by how easy she cooked the noodles! In less than 5 minutes, we were served our first ever authentic Thai street food.

Lady, we should've listened to you

We excitedly dug in our Pad Thai (we ate it at the stall) then immediately realized the vendor's point. It was very delicious but gaddemit, IT WAS REALLY REALLY REALLY SPICY. It literally brought us to tears. Lol. The lady vendor laughed at us (in a nice way) as we eat her painfully delicious Pad Thai.

Sheila, meet the evil Pad Thai

Afraid that our tongues will burn out, we  went to the nearby 7-Eleven to get drinks. I felt like a kid in a candy store because I found items that not sold in our local convenience stores. They are priced cheap too!

Sausages of different lengths, colors, and girth

Lots of frozen munchies

Yakult, Yogurt, and Flavored Milk Drinks

In the morning, we visited Wat Pho, Wat Arun, and the Grand Palace. These temples are close to each other so you could either walk or ride a tuk-tuk. We chose the former because we want to experience the streets of Bangkok. Just like in the Philippines, it's also filled with vendors selling hats, statues, toys, cds (pirated ones, yes!), and other trinkets. Of course, there were an abundance of food.

Fried Sausages and Dumplings sold at BT10-20 each stick
