Bangkok 2015 18/9-24/9 Day 2 Chatuchak & Diga diga doooo

Much awaited trip to Chatuchak in an upcoming offshoulder lace top from TDJ
and the yummy coconut ice cream 

And finally we had our mango sticky rice for 50baht. Most of the other stalls sell Mango sticky rice for 90-100baht and we didn't want too big a portion, since we are such greedy gluttons and wanna eat everything :D


Had this in 2012 with the papa and it is too good to be missed. Had to introduce this gem to the bfie now that we managed to find it again.

The legendary duck noodles. Ohhh maaa gawwwd. That tasty and delish soup with the well marinated duck leg. 100 Baht if my memory doesn't fail for this goodness.

The bfie also gives this a double thumbs up!

 Must try okayyy! 

No shots for the afternoon shopping spree, because the hands are busy searching for good deals :D
A fast forward to the evening where we headed back to the hotel area to fill up the tummies for Diga Diga Doo (more below).

The bfie finally found the Butterfly fritters a few steps from our hotel.
He has been missing and raving over this fritters since we had it last year.

Tubs of pandans.

It's really how amazing the dough can be made and deep fried to such crispyness  and 松ness fluffiness. Took me some time to come up with the correct word. But it's soooo good. Reallly reallyyyy good.

It's a 1960s retro evening partyyyyyy and since it coincides with our stay at Shanghai Mansion, it's a sign that we have to go right?!


Muacks! TWO big PARTYY faces for you!

Sawadeeka miss, why you photobomb? ):

Shoved the pink retro shades into the bfie's face to complete the retro look.
A girl can never have too many shades right!(:

Lets goooo parttyyy!!

Waltz into the night in the ballroom. Most of the party-goers are dancing enthusiasts and are all well versed in their dance steps.

The bf and I didn't have much experience, and despite me really wanting to dance, the bfie seemed really shyyyyy, so we just watched others dance, and attempted random twirls.

haha, because I told the bfie that there isn't a fixed routine for the dance steps and most couples just dance along with the vibes and rhythm and that's how all the couples can dance differently yet blend with the music.

So he attempted to use a couple as reference, and whenver they twirl, he would go " turn turn, they are turning also!" and force me to twirl. 

Other than that he just stands at his spot and shake.

LOL can't get over that.

There's also a performance of one of the foxiest ladies, Sharon Davis, also known as Bonnie Fox.
A champion of 2013 World Burlesque Games in London, oh boy, you should have seen the way she danced.

There's also a trio performance of the international swing stars.

Swung my night into my new favourite H&M retro romper that is flattering down to every inch and vintage scarf tied into a headtie.

A pity we were not well versed in dancing and were not very open to it, else it would have been more awesome!

Sooooo, we left after the performances... for the bfie to search for more street food.
