Shopping day yesterday


 We caught the train to MBK which is a huge shopping centre 11 stories high,this is a shop navigator which shows you where the shops are that you are looking for

 This was one massive shopping centre 

Not good if you are scared of heights,lol,I held onto Jen very tight,lol.

 Then we caught a Tok Tok to China town

Wow so many people and so many shops and stalls.

We had to stay close together here,it would be very easy to get lost

China town was very big and busy

The streets were crowded,the foot paths were not very wide and you had to watch out for motor bikes doing deliveries. We leave Bangkok on the midnight flight tonight and will get home around tea time Wednesday ,can't wait to see the family to get lots of cuddles from my little people,lol. Cheers shez xx

 Yummy ,part of the lovely breakfast buffet.

 Caught the train to Chad a chuck market.

 Put my big girl pants on and caught it back to Asok the area where we were staying by myself as my friends were going to visit some very close friends and I didn't want to intrude on their time together.,Bangkok is such a big place.


Here we are at the market it was massive with hundreds and hundreds of crammed together stall holders

 Jen is checking out a cute bag here.

 I bought a couple of tee shirts and some cute purses

 And I found some red,green and light blue beads on a string for my Xmas decorations,at a 100 baht each which is around $4 ,a bargin and it will keep me going for awhile,we are off to China town tomorrow.cheers Shez xx

 Lots of farmed frogs ready to be bought and cooked ,our Thai teacher said they fry there legs in parsley butter,yuk,lol.,not a dish that we wanted to make.

 Live catfish ready to be bought.

 We made a papaya salad

Main Street in Fishermans Village Kho Samui


There are bikes everywhere here.

 Lots of little market shops.

Some food stalls as well.

 We went into this place for tea last night and the food was beautiful and the service awesome.

 Some more stalls down the side alleys.

 Lol bikes galore,they nearly run you over in the street,you need to look out for them all the time.

 The street is very narrow,it's interesting when 2 cars try to pass,lol.

 Cheers shez xx
