Shoes you must buy from Thai street markets



Well , what kinda shoes should you get when you have the chance to do so ?
I'm recommending those plastic or jelly ones ,that are close copies of famous brands with a twist in design , as well as colour . 

Despite the ridiculous price tag ( around 25 ringgit per pair ) these Thai made shoes are so stable you can run in them , I'm not kidding !
 They're also surprisingly comfy and last so long they can walk you through rain , flood waters and seawater , yet last forever and never spoil ! I should know , because I've done all of that with earlier versions .

Because those with heels are so popular , they get snapped up like hot cakes so you really have to search and if you see one in your size , snap it up quick !

You can pick some of these shoes up in Malaysia too but they're hotter than a boiling pot of dhall and a lot of times , you'll need to stake out or keep tabs on the stall , so that when new stocks arrive , you get them before others do !

So , anyway , I snapped up 3 pairs the other day , I'll show you the first one today .
Currently into light brown , nude and skin tones , I picked the plastic shoe below , for the very unusual heel design . Not too high , super comfortable this .

Steamboat misadventure at MK - mmmmnnnnokay


You won't catch me having steamboat  or hotpot out of Penang . The only other place which I've actually enjoyed the steamboat / hotpot experience , was in Cameron Highlands ( covered somewhere in my backposts )

Since the first time I arrived in Bangkok , MK has been a fixture , it's been around that long !

I'm curious ...it's always full . Damnit let's go try it out today shall we ?

Sutti Mansion II - The Edge lookalike , his Blazing Pad Thai and our pot of Burning Tomyam


Never been to Soi 38 before . My first time exploring the area . Doesn't seem to be much action going on and from what I gather , it is all due to the efforts from the authorities on street hawkers .

While it may be a shadow of its past , I was determined to get a late night bite and the only place that looked kinda buzzing seemed to be this tiny , odd spot called Sutti Mansion II .


Ponn Cafe


June in Bangkok is a really good time to go sampling their shrimps . Unlike the beginning of the year , where the weather can get pretty temperate these days , the sun was unbearably unforgiving . But that seemed to have brought out the best in the produce this region has to offer . Chillies are hotter , fruits are sweeter , shrimps are firmer and fresher ( really no idea why ) and if you are lucky , you can also get to sample some off season flowers in your omelette .


Disco Best Beef ดิสโก้ เบสต์บีฟ


By now , I've learnt not to take any beef soup that is dark in colour as it contains too many overpowering herbs that spoil the enjoyment for me .

Disco Best Beef has clear beef soup and that's where we are headed this time . 
Getting a table space can be trying even during non peak periods so be prepared to wait most times .
