Bangkok ~ the final chapter

The sleep yesterday night were the most uncomfortable one. With the sound of gunshoots and explosion which cleary heard even on the 10th floor, I bet no one can sleep peacefully that night. Which also explains we getting our breakfast quite late today...The colourful palate of the breakfast seems to cheer us up abit. Today there were spaghetti and it was yummy...

After bath, we thought want to try our luck out there...There still taxis outside but on the road, its seems to be quieter and less people...Went to Patong again but the route seems to be longer than yesterday. All to be blame is on the road closure...Narayana is closed again. Seems that we won't get it this time...No more place that we can go now. We actually waited quite long for another taxi that suggest us to a shopping center which is abit from Bangkok - The Big C. Nothing much to buy there and at when it's close to lunch time, we went back to Chinatown...

Hua Seng Hong looks exactly like a typical chinese restaurant, very the chinese feel, hahaha...It's Michelle birthday today, just thought want to have something nice for her.

There's dim sum on the menu, we ordered the most common Har Gau and Siew Mai to try...Totally dissapointed, those back in KL roadside stall fare even better.

Steamed fish, failed. Fish not fresh and overcooked. I don't know to cook well but I still know the spring onion are to be put later. From the look of this, they definitely steamed the spring onion together with the fish...

I wonder why there are a few bean sprouts at this Or Jien?

But still I feel content now, cause I found one more collection for my Coca Cola at a roadside stall just now...That auntie quite reluctant to sold to me at first. Because it's actually a 2009 coca cola. Nice?

Full stomach, sleepy and on a hot day with no more place to go, back to hotel is the only choice...But there's no more taxi and when there is, none of them want to go to our hotel. After quite long there is one demanded 200 baht which we eventually give in since no more taxi want to go there...And only that time we know how serious is the situation now because the riot has now got into our hotel area...The road to our hotel is closed, so the taxi stopped us halfway and we need to walk for more than 1/2 hour. This is the most scary moment of my life and I can't remember how fast I have walk but that should be the fasted in my life. Passing those protester and army on the road. Their looks is really scaryyy!! When I reached hotel, everyone in there seems to be so panicked, so do us...

Our hotel entrance were blocked at this moment...

The rest of the day we just spend in the hotel. And the situation continue till night time.

Funny part is when the manager ask us whether we wanted to go to 7 Eleven which thought it's abit ridiculous but he assured us that it was safe. So we followed him to another street which is about 5 min walk from the back of the hotel...

Their 7 Eleven even sell birthday cake, really wanted to buy it for Michelle...

Bought some compact sandwhiches and dim sum for supper, hahaha...You must saying that I still got mood for supper, rite?

We couldn't really sleep well that night...Woke up quite early the next day since we are going back to KL. After breakfast, we straight away checked for taxi which demanded 1000 baht to airport, normally is only 400 baht the max...Flight were 3pm but we already leaving the hotel at 11am...Its should be safer in airport there...

Some of things I managed to grab these few days...

With that it come to the end of my journey and thank god I arrived back to KL safely... I really wish I can go to Bangkok again and because of that, I couldn't resist to booked the Air Asia cheap ticket. RM175 for 3 day 2 night including hotel, cheap cheap cheap...
