This is pretty much an international working crew. Thailand, Korea, China, India, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and the United States are represented. Missing are the lads from New Zealand and Vietnam.
All work and no shopping makes for a pretty dull stay. I'm not really a mall person. I just look for stores that sell books, music, sports apparel, and curio shops. Like I previously wrote, Siam Paragon and the malls beside it -- Centre World, and Discovery are okay but it's in MBK and Chatuchak that are more fun buys.
This was my lunch one time at the K Kafe located at the ground floor of the Empire Tower. I ordered mushroom soup, panfried pork steak served with salad and freedom, er French fries to go with mixed seasonal fruits for dessert. K Kafe is a laid back dining lounge where 10% of every order goes to the support of the Lamplaimat Pattana School which provides education to kids in the rural areas.
This is the menu to Monjya Nonya, a Japanese soul food restaurant at the ground floor of the Ascott Hotel in Bangkok. There's a twist to the cuisine here -- it's deepened with Singaporean flavors!
The menu is pretty cool because it reads like a fashion mag catalogue. Hahahaha.
