Travel Diaries: My Bangkok Birthday Trip – Day 3

TODAY WAS MY BIRTHDAY!

Prior to this trip, I had imagined how this day would turn out..I’d wake up with J singing Happy Birthday carrying a cake or we’d have dinner cruising the Chao Phraya river or clubbing in one of the rooftop bars while giving me a surprise.

Although events did not turn out as I dreamed of, this day was fun and memorable still..because I was with my J!  : )

After breakfast, we went at the hotel’s mezzanine where the travel agency was located.  Joseph and Caloy inquired and decided on a whole day tour the next day.  We called Candy and asked if they wanted to join.

We agreed to take Caloy to MBK.  We decided to take a tuktuk.  However, before we were able to reach MBK, we were brought to different places by the tuktuk driver.  As he said, it was Buddha day and the establishments were giving certificates and/or vouchers for free gasoline whenever they bring clients and more if the customers would buy from them.

We went first to one jewelry store that manufacture there own items.  This store was on the high-end side.  We left and were brought to another jewelry store but on the lower end.  Here Caloy bought a pendant shaped as a tuktuk.  Afther here Caloy was very hungry and wanted to go to MBK already.  Even I was a little irritated already as the driver wanted to bring us in a travel agency after.  With his kakulitan, J and Caloy agreed.  However, the Boss at the agency was a little snob.  As we were inquiring, she told us to return when our friends were already here.

Finally, we were brought to MBK Mall.  The agreement was the ride was free because we went to all the establishments he wanted us to go to.  We tried to ask how much the fare was and he replied.  But we didn’t pay him.  We were just testing him.  Gugulangan pa kami! Hmp!

buwis-buhay on my special day! : )

As Caloy was hungry, we brought him to Fifth Avenue.  After lunch we walked around the mall.  Like us he didn’t see much items that he wanted to buy so we went instead to the shopping center across MBK and which carried the branded names.

We decided to walk going to Platinum mall.  As we walked, we passed by the different mall.  We even passed by one temple where J and Caloy brought out the children in them.

We rested at Let’s Sip coffee shop where Caloy used their free Wifi to talk to his special friend.  After that, they went on their own while I window-shopped.

We received a message from Candy telling us that they were already in the hotel so went back to the hotel.  Once they were settled we returned to Platinum Mall to eat dinner and for their last minute shopping for the day.

We were discussing whether to have drinks in one of the rooftop bars or go to Henry J. Beans bar but at the end we headed back to Coco Walk.
