Bangkok: A 90/10 Leisure/Business Trip (3 of 3)
我對上兩次去曼谷係八年前同一個月, 都係當年嘅公司出錢嘅, 一次係去training, 而另一次係公司team-building旅行.. 再之前嘅泰國遊呢, 就係2000年世紀初去過合艾兩次.. 一共四次trip就係我學會少少好基本嘅泰語同埋點樣嗌某啲食物.. 今日呢篇係曼谷悠遊系列最後一貼, 我知好多讀者都很期待睇我食過啲乜.. 好啦, 好似寫遊記一定要寫美食咁, 請大家細賞.. 不過先此聲明, 我唔係(好記得)影咗好多相, 而且我冇食冬陰功, 冇食芒果飯.. 多謝大家捧場!! :)
my last two trips to Bangkok were in the same month 8 years ago, both sponsored by my then-company, one for training and the other a company team-building trip.. before this, my Thai experience was in early 2000s when i went to Haadyai twice.. these four trips were when i learned a little basic colloquial Thai as well as their local food.. as the final post for this series of Bangkok travelogue, i know many readers can't wait to read about what i had eaten throughout the trip.. okay, like a food post is a must, here you go.. but please pardon me as i did not (remember to) take many photos, and FYI i did not have tomyum and sticky rice with mango.. thanks for reading!! :)

    1. SK is a lovable guy , thus even the chefs also like him. Furthermore, THia are friendly people, so, I am sure they won't reject his order, and he also ben dining there daily.

      Somehow, I like soya sauce especially with fish balls and yong tau foo. of course, another one is chilli. But soya sauce on toast is a bit 'strange' to me. muahahaha...

    2. i think if you tell somebody that you miss his/her cooking, i am sure he/she will be very happy and don't mind cooking especially for you again.. hey, just a dash of soy sauce on the butter toast, IT IS NICE, be more adventurous and try that, hahaha!!!

  2. Eh, I think this part 3 ngam most of us the most, coz it’s about food, sure got things to write ma, no need to squeeze brain juice to think.. hehe.. Ok, let’s see, 3A got all the breakfast food, normal la, I’d eat all these too in the hotel for breakfast.. Cannot miss the omelette and sausages and toasts.. Wah, the chef purposely cooked a plate of fried rice for you, specially just for you, no charge, wah, good wor.. That day must be your lucky day.. Butter with soya sauce? Tak pernah cuba, must relaly try it leh..

    As for the street food in Bangkok, I remember the soupy beef noodles.. Very nice.. Had that at night before going back to the hotel.. Ooooo, I see all

    Western food in 3C.. The last time I went, my first meal was McD’s pork burger.. But since you ask us to forget about that, ok, I will take note of this Burker King instead..

    Ahhh, yogurt drinks.. I will also go to their 7-11 and see see look look their products, especially in Thai words, see got any difference or special or not..

    Call me jakun or broken England.. What is plantain?

    Wahhhh, I love that McParfait !!! Looks so interesting, bet it taste nice too, with the honey coated cashew nuts and sticky rice..

    Haha, love your simple green home-made lunch.. I will omit all the veges and just eat an apple and cheese.. Coz I don’t like vege ma..

    1. The Burger king looks great. Furthermore it's pork! Wouldn't mind it's expensive as long as it's tasty.

    2. yalor, at first i was so worried that she misunderstood that i want to order the fried rice ala carte and then charge it to my room, luckily she didn't and it was all complimentary..

      now we all know why this Princess Ribbon only does her "big business" once only after few days, because she doesn't like to eat veggie!!!

      yeah, if you go to Thailand, do try Burger King and ask for pork patties, much nicer than McD Samurai Burger..

  3. Unfortunately, you are not the first person to try toast with butter and soy sauce, LOL! But you are definitely right that it is wonderful! :D

    The khao kha moo, TBH 350? Is that a typo? Otherwise that means more than RM 35 isn't it? I wouldn't call that cheap for food from street stalls :/ ...

  4. Good morning bloggers. I am eating miserable breakfast now while drooling at thambee's luxury meals in Bangkok. The hotel provided very delicious basic and complete choices. I would always eat to maximum as my brunch to save time for lunch until tea time. That would save money too for me.

    1. Good morning SK , Anay and all

      same here la...you at least makan something. me only coffee at McD leh. Sigh...internet crawling like kura kura today. Yesterday zoom zoom so fast...grrrrr!

      wei the choices there very filling leh. got rice got meat..../wait...later i click click see got friend insects or critters or not muhahaha

    2. 3a – You are so cute to speak some smattering Thai to the chef until melted her heart. So pandai mengurat hati lah this Thambee!! If I had spoken to the chef, I think I would get nothing cos I don't look cute like Doraemon. Muahahahaha I wonder whether the chef is an old lady who is seeking for a potential groom for her daughter who is a Poo Ying Suai Suai.....

      I am surprised that you had toasts with butter and soya sauce. It should be edible no doubt but why didn't you out the fried eggs onto the bread and smear with some tom yam paste from their kitchen. You might arrive at heaven's doors after trying it. I love their black tom yam paste. Next time I buy for you ok!

    3. 3b – What a lovely set of photos shared. I would eat them everyday too in Bangkok besides their Khanom Jeen Noodles. I wonder whether you weight and cholesterol have increased??


      I wanted to cry when I saw the food cos my mother always cooked them for me all my life. I guess that I need to go to Bangkok to eat them now. In fact, I have been eating them nowadays for some years in PJ since I didn't live with my parents for a long time. I find that almost all the stalls or restaurants in Thailand cook & serve almost similar standard taste for all their pork dishes whether pork legs or fried basil pork rice. You can feast them at these 2 restaurants in PJ >> Thai Frame @ Happy Mansion, Section 17 and Black Canyon @ Centrepoint Bandar Utama.

    4. 3c – Ooo La La!!! Aroi Mak! Aroi Mak! I love those bacons sticking out. I know you exposed it for photography purpose to make us drool. I didn't know that you could get pork burgers in Burger King there as they have many religious people living there who abstain from these meat. Oh well, different country has different rules.


      The Thais have many good chefs who could cook international cuisines very well regardless of which countries. I think the folks there have very strong tasting tongues that could easily help them to master the cooking skills. I am speaking from my own experience after observing my own mother. They often toy and try out many variations until someone would rope them into cooking demos and competitions. Every year, so many new innovative Thai dishes are created and shared in the news & TV. That's how the folks live and focus on the art of cooking, fruit & vegetable carvings and general Arts.

    5. 3d – I am so outdated with their products on supermarket shelves now. You seem to observe them better than anyone else in Bangkok. I would only pay attention to their local products when I visited Japan or China. I love yoghurt too and always stock all types in my fridge here in KL. You can visit me to eat them, tak payah go to Thailand. Mai Pen Rai... Mai Pen Rai... Fing Fing drank Meiji's banana milk!!! That's Japanese product and we still never heard of them in KL. How about you? What did you drink? Banana Milk too, I guess.

      The Thais seem to love sweety stuffs. Look at their kueh-kueh sold everywhere....so sweet until you get diabetic on the spot. Wakakakaka

      Delete
    6. 3e – I wanna laugh at your statement that Thais are so slim! I would say that the fat ones are too lazy to come out to be seen, so they probably stay at home. That's how I saw them lah. Muahahaha
      Anyway, I would say that they are many better and good looking Thais everywhere, be it males or females or even shemales & ladyboys! Their eating culture is definitely different from Malaysians and we are somewhat less creative. My siblings always curse my few relatives from the South when they come to visit as they are too fussy. They have this bad habit to compare their temples and food with ours. Those BKK relatives are more adaptable and would shaddup to eat whatever we fed them.

      I agree that the Pomegranate juice is so cheap for THB40 a bottle!!! Here we have to pay for minimum RM9.00 to RM14.00 a bottle. That's robbery. I think this fruit is getting very popular these days after being discovered to contain so much anti-oxidants and vitamins besides giving out the tasty juice. So refreshing to quench our thirsts in the hot weather.

      Delete
    7. 3f – Everyone knows that too much coke is not healthy but since you are on holiday, just drink la. Mai Pen Rai! They always serve with plenty of crushed ice for the coke to make it so diluted but refreshingly nice. Their sundae ice cream has always been my favourite since I was a small boy. I have so much vivid memories that my mum had to buy me 2-3 cups per day in Bangkok. That's how she pampered me and look at my awful size today!! Ooops!
      I wonder why our sundae here is so different from Thailand's.

    8. 3g – Wow!!! Thambee you walked so much in Thailand for a week's stay! More than you walked in Kuala Lumpur throught a year of 365 days! How come your statistic didn't show your actual weight??Tsk! Tsk! Lousy demographics lah. Anyway I believed you weight had remained unchanged or dropped many kilos! Good that you won't feel guilty for the holiday that included all the binge eating of porky meals, sweets and ice creams! Congratulations for the healthy holidays!!

    9. 3h – Now back to reality and you turned into a goat instantly to feast on the greens. That's normal to cheat yourself temporary and not feel guilty. I bet by next week, you would be killing your bathroom scales again after eating fatty Char Koay Teow and Bak Kut Teh!! Welcome to life in Kuala Lumpur. Thank you Thambee for sharing your one week in Bengkok!!! Wakakakakaka

    10. SK, I like the green lunch especially there's apple! Your green lunch would taste better with some nuts.

    11. Oh...poor TM. What have you been eating lately? Why so kesian?
      You should have joined Thambee when he's on vacation and jalan-jalan with him to cari makan.

    12. yeah, luckily i remember to take photos of some of the food that i had there, else i don't think i can ever come out with a post like this, hahahaha!! food are nice over there in Thailand, and i am surprise i actually had lots of pork, it's like pork is so common over there even they have it as an option in Burger King.. many countries do not even have that..

      hehehehe, i have not eaten any CKT or BKT at all after i'm back from Thailand.. in fact, i do not like BKT at all, if you have not known about this~~ :p

    13. hahaha coz your dad every week also make BKT for you all mah. And if BKT you only like to eat the lean meat. Betul tak. Darn it...now feel like eating BKT pulak. Adui. not a good time to talk about food when i haven eat breakfast LOL.

      Delete
    14. haha, that is one reason also lah, but i really so-so BKT only leh.. those fat meat sure i will give to Small Kucing lah, me prefer the ribs more leh, especially like that thin layer that stuck to the bones, haha~~

  5. your company then company sponsor two trips on same month? mak oi...damn lucky la you or maybe you were one of the company precious assets kot?

    My old company usually send us to KL for training only tarak go overseas. Paling best is team building training coz no need to go through exam just go play and eat like kids play school hahaha. Maybe yours also same kihkihkih

    Four trips only over so many years yet you can learn some of the colloquil thai language. Very brainy leh. Memang asset to the company la. Fast learner.

    you saving the best for last ah? so that after we look at all the photos then tgis weekend can go hunting all Thai food restaurant to eat tghai food ah.... Suddenly all Thai Restaurant have a lot of customers this weekend coz of your bog. Your blog quiet quiet but influenced many people leh. Many silent readers here

    top left...salad looks good..minus the pineapple. You know me la. hahaha. put more mayo lagi best but then not very healthy lo. that is they serve to you or did you take punya. nice presentation la.

    Bottom left. Why la the confused face? dunno what to eat is it? or not enough food? hahaha

    Top right. Mak oi.....you ah...manis mulut . Specially cook that plate of fried rice for you . But then memang la. Sometimes when you tell the chef honestly the food taste nice they also happy and they might even add more nice stuffs for you. In life when food not nice or what we only know how to complain but when the food is nice, seldom we tell the person that making it that the food is nice. same goes for service. Should praise more then everyone will be more happy .

    Bottom right : hahaha toast with soy sauce. wei...you tarak go puji the waiter and say the jam very nice or cute meh? Joking la

    toast with soy sauce sounds good leh. after all the chinese fried ham chim peah also have the sweet(with red beans) and the salty type (plain) . So Toast is just something like the ham chim peah. got salty type also not surprising lot.

    Have you tried Milo and coffee? My former colleague taught me mixed milo and coffee. No need add sugar and creamer. sedap leh. Maybe it's the same as the Mamak stall neslo kot.

    1. the salad was served buffet style, so i make that plate myself, not bad huh?? because i wanted to take photo, so buat cantik sikit lah, haha!! aiyo your sharp eyes, i have not even noticed that confused face leh, all i see are just two sausages and two eggs, hahaha!! that one served, not i buat..

      i guess if we tell somebody we miss his/her cooking, sure he/she will be very happy and don't mind cooking once more for us, hehe.. hmmm, the toast with soy sauce very nice leh, until i did not want the jam anymore but mintak soy sauce from them~~ :p

    2. hahaha....imagination overload punya pasal la so can see confused face there.

      Betul leh ...if anyone praise the cooking, people also happy.

    Can I call you "gila babi"(in a joking sort of way, not the scolding rude way)? hahaha....yesterday saw a friend posted in FB that there is a signboard in a restaurant that says gila babi. A good way to advertise. hahaha...normally people think the word gila babi is to scold but this one not.

    The way you wrote this second photo collage really reminds me of that word lo.

    Khao kao moo makes me imagine of something to do with cow coz of the english sounding words. Aiyo ...you kill me la...so drooling good leh the braise pork trotter with rice. Some do not eat pork trotter coz say the legs walked on everything including the poo but i do not mind eating the trotter. So yummy leh. Here wanna buy pig trotter in pasar to cook very expensive leh., There so cheap.

    What? Minus the fat and skin? Mana sedap if like that. With the fat and skin baru la sedap. tak mau , you baling here kasi me makan. I love it. Yummmm...especially when it melts in the mouth.

    wei...the other 3 are what ah..the one with the soup looks very nice wor. is it like the hot pepper soup? Yum yum leh

    1. hahaha, not i gila babi totally lah, but also because pork is very common there lah.. imagine even Burger King also let you have pork patties as choice.. yucks!!! now i know this Cat loves to eat all those fat meat and skin, next time i must cut away those and pass them to you!!! hahahaha..

    2. hahaha tapau tapau mali

      Kinda eaasy la if like that to cari makan. Most blogs i see when they go Thailand they will feature those fried insect and creepy crawlies. I didnt know got so much oink oink food over there. Hmmm...now can start planning what to eat there liao

      Delete
    3. next time if you go to Bangkok can try their braised pork trotter rice (khao kha moo) lah.. by default they will give you lean meat, fat meat and also the skin one.. of course for me, i must go "mai ao nang" since i don't eat them..

    I see the top left the ribs...aiyo like the ribs i had in Tony Romas Indon. Slurp....looks well marinated and sp many of them. can finish ka? Plate wise look small leh. I guess that is not individual plate is it? just to share punya kot

    Top right duno what...like pork chop with mashed potatoes or tofu at the bottom geh Duno if i would like it or not

    wah bottom left.....yum yum...dipped in thai chili sauce and eat very nic. if cannot finish that put in and cook asam vege should be super nice. Can imagine the nice aroma liao.

    2. if you want enough time to try all then you will have to stay and work there for some time lor. Just like what you did in hong kong last time but even that dont think will manage to see all la.

      you are not uncle enough la. Coz if you uncle enough you will go norong those electrical goods . Heard there cheaper wor. Like the Philip Air Fryer....over there on ratus RM only but here RM1K over

    3. true also lah, we will never be able to see all and eat all for one place lah.. even for KL itself, living here for close to 40 years also, i must say there are so many things that i have not seen, have not eaten and even have not heard of leh..

    You know what...time changes. Just think. What food did we have now that we did not have 10 years ago?

    Looks like Thai is changing by the year too. When we dnt visit a place for a long time, we would find things changed. Looks like they are more health concious and provide visitors with a healthier choice of snack leh.

    Good idea. I think soon we will have it here in Malaysia too.

    You know the apam balik in malaysia only have the jagung ones long time ago? Now they have apam baik Chocolate, strawberry, cheese and etc, indonesia already have it long time ago.

    Pomegranate juice so cheap. Like that buy more and drink leh. Pomegranate have a lot of health benefit wor

    1. i think pomegranate was not popular back then lah, even in Malaysia also it's starting to be more widely known in recent years only leh.. but over there one bottle i think around 200ml selling at only THB40, we bought three and she sold us for only THB110.. over here, the pomegranate one small bottle also over RM10 leh.. so expensive..

    Uiks...I would have thought you would have more of the fruit juice instead of soft drinks leh. Those stall usually have fruit juice also right? Or maybe worry about the cleanliness of the ice and water is it...

    The shape of the coca-cola over there now is same shape as the new 100 plus can here ha. Tall and slim. Hahaha...looks like the tall and slim trend is catching on now leh. Easier grip for even children to hold. Like the milo can. Tall and slim. less chances of spilling.

    fuiyo....the sundae there can have so many toppings ah. Maybe the cost of things there is lower kot. all those nuts there cheaper than here kot?

    I think if here got such things, many will wanna have the sundae la.

    wow... you told the waitress her fried rice is very delicious and she promptly ask the chef to cook for you ! You really know how to teased the waitress...muahaha... Was she gorgeous ? You should taken a selfie with her and post it here....muahahha...

    Joke aside ...Thais always gave good services and hospitality. Most of them are nice and warm. I love all the food you had. It certainly gave you energy for work and play.

    Btw, the hotel never offered buffet ? Seems like all ala carte.

  16. Oh... toast with butter and soya sauce ? That's something new to me.Probably the butter may not be salty enough and putting some soy sauce helps to balance it. Or the soy sauce there is different from those we had here, just like the Japanese soya sauce.
    hmm..anyway, I don;t think I will try that... muahahaha.... I will likely down with butter. Its nice too though we shared the same taste - Kaya toast.
    You don't drink coffee? Seems like something amiss from the breakfast or toast.

  17. Wah..so much pork! Now... I really wonder you got exercise to shed off the extra calories ...muhahahaa... This is a heavy packed lunch.

    I lik Bangkok ... they have food all the way till midnight. In Sg, by 9.30 pm , most of the malls and eateries starting to call it a day unless you go to the central area or certain areas.

    It's really cheap at that price. Don't think can find it here. Anyway. great that you are health conscious and rip off the fat else I think you need to run 10KM per day....muahahaha

    Yeah, i blogging ...something will amiss if you didn't blog on the food.

  18. I bet you have gained weight after the trip :P
    oohhh..... look at the burger laden with cheese and ...errr.. pork again! But it sure looks good to me. Got bacon somemore! I love bacon! yummy... Must be very delicious. The BK here is halal...so, no pork.

  19. Yeah, it's good to have some yogurt after all the fat laden food. It's gentle on the digestive system and help purged out all the fats. Seems like they have various flavours there...can see lychee and coconut. i don't think I can find these two yogurts flavours here.

    Aiyo...even that monkey also have one... looks so cute!

  20. Ah..... I was about to comment why there are no fruits and vegetables and there you are in the next pix. Its so nice to see the raw vegetables packed freshly in a box for lunch. That's like salad. Yeah, no wonder the thai girls look so gorgeous and fair!

    I can see you like fruits and with all these fresh fruits there, I am sure you are delighted! Its nice to hear there are so many fruit stalls there. Can have fresh juice anytime. Pomegranate is very healthy and delicious, and refreshing too!

I like their design , and I may buy 1 can back as a souvenir. Different countries got different designs and I am sure the collectors will love it.

    Wah...I like that dessert. Wait a minute, is it from MCd or the stalls? The dessert is very Thai or nyonya to me. It's always nice to eat local delicacy where you are in another country.

  22. Wah .....25K steps!! How you do that without running? I can only achieved it when I run. You must have walked 20KM on that day. Well done. Ok la..like that , you also burn off all the calories , so , not too bad.

    I guess you have been walking around sight-seeing and walk from one place to another place .... Well, I don't think I can do that as I am impatience. I can run but if you ask me to walk in the malls like that, the old uncle in me will start to grumble and transformed into a grumpy old man....muaahaha...

    1. yeah, walking one whole day from morning till night, with breaks back in hotel in between of course.. not driving there but just took public transport and walk, i guess easily 10K steps a day.. so next time, if you go to Bangkok, leave your wifey and kids to shop in the mall and you go elsewhere to run~~ :D

    1. The top left hand corner is fruits and salads. I see watermelon, pineapple and salad stuff. That I admit I am not so keen for breakfast. I mean I love my salads and fruits but not so much in the morning. This one I would prefer as an accompaniment during lunch or dinner.

    2. The fried rice looks quite plain but from what you say, it is delicious and full of flavours. I love fried rice in any style and in particular Thai or Chinese style. You see, the chef was so flattered by your compliment that she specially fried the rice for you even though it was not on the menu for the day. A little appreciation goes a long way, huh?

    4. Now the toast (which I saw on your FB) with butter and soya sauce is a curiosity. How is it that you decide on soya sauce to make up for the lack of jam? I am trying to imagine a buttery toast with a dash of soya sauce. Hmm...this one must really try it to solve the mystery hee..hee...

Of course the fats are not healthy but I eat once in a while only.

    1. I used to love the imported yoghurt because they tasted a lot nicer. But sadly these are no longer affordable. I only get them of they are on offer. So the Thai ones are lots better than our local ones, eh? An dcheaper too I guess. Then you would be on yoghurt overload in Bangkok and enjoy while you can. I see Fing Fing is a happy boy with his banana yoghurt drink.

    2. the locally manufactured yoghurt and yoghurt drinks in Malaysia are all overly sweet and they use thickeners to thicken the yoghurt.. i have stopped buying them.. i only started to buy yoghurt drinks again for my overnight oats.. those in Thailand are so much nicer and even cheaper..

    3. oh yeah, i rarely drink Coke over here but it tasted so nice over there in Bangkok, muahahahaha!! i think because they serve drinks with very finely crushed ice (not like our big ice cubes), making the drinks nicer and more refreshing, and of course i think the hot weather makes Coke even nicer to drink there :D

    1. So this is a good thing. All that walking and sweating was worth in to compensate for all the sinful eating. I think that's the best solution if we want to enjoy food during holidays. After all, during holiday we want to enjoy the environment and also the local food. After eating, we walk and walk and walk to enjoy the sights and sounds and at the same time burn off our food hee..hee...

    2. oh yeah, i got a shock that day when i realised i have walked over 25K steps in just a day, that was really a record for me.. very true, not driving over there, we took public transport and did lots of walking.. hope these steps help to shed off the calories :p

    I remember the hotel I stayed during the trip, they don't provide so much variety, in fact their 'cafe' is so small, just a corner only, they do have coffee, and a little bit of fried rice, toast, and you can order omelet or fried egg from the kitchen.
    If I am not mistaken, friend and I took the breakfast for 2 days only, cause kinda bored already, the other 2 days we went hunting for food outside.

    Wah you are being treated so nicely, the chef purposely cook for you!
    I think your 魅力 manage to attract the chef's attention la, not bad ma! :p

    Oh ya, I love toast too! Just that at home, we won't really make toast, lazy... So when we go outside like when traveling, we sure will make toast if there's toast maker. And don't know is it 心理作用 or what, toast we eat outside taste so much better! ;)

    I see you got take fruits and salad, very balance! Whenever I go travel, if there's buffet, I will sure pick some fruits and salad and yogurt to eat, for better bowel movement ma! And also won't fall sick that easy.

  52. Oh ya, pork is kinda popular and common there huh? See their McD also got pork burger all year long. What's more interesting to me is the top right one, macam fully loaded leh! And price is so reasonable!

    Speaking about Japanese food, I realize there's lots of Japanese restaurants there in Thailand, I wonder is there a connection between Japan and Thailand? And what's more interesting is their Japanese food is very tasty! Wah the one at the bottom left, so big piece! And look at the bone!! :o

    Aiyah, how come I never thought of buying their drinks to try? All I usually drink when in Thailand is their coconut water and sugar cane juice... Next time must go lepak longer at their 7-11 and try their drinks.

    Oh the lunchbox is so interesting! Indeed very healthy!
    And pomegranate juice, I remember! Very fresh, no added sugar one! Also their orange juice, very pure! Thailand really have lots of pomegranate, so they are cheap..

      I remember I don't really gain weight during my Bangkok trip, cause like you said, walked a lot, and weather there is so hot sure can sweat easily. So, weight should be the same la, or may be just a slight difference.

      I am glad you had that green lunch when you were back!! Impressed me, cause seldom got guys eat such a green meal! If offer my hubby this, I am sure he'd rather go diet, hahaha!
