Brunch: Take 2

A few weeks ago I told you all about our first Bangkok brunch experience in the post, Let’s do brunch. I also admitted how I’d been so excited I pretty much forgot to take any pictures and lets face it, the ones I did take were pretty suspect! We took my parents to the Red Oven…

Burger Friday.

After a few hours travelling back from Koh Chang on Friday, we just needed something quick and delicious for dinner. I know I’ve told you all about Game Over numerous times on Travels of a Beauty Addict (apologies but their burgers are just so damn good!) but now I have a proper camera I wanted to…

Koh Chang Part 2

Thursday was our last full day on Chang so we hired a speedboat and headed out for some snorkelling. Dave and I snorkelled on our island hopping trip in March, my parents hadn’t ever snorkelled properly but we were all excited! We had a 13 seater boat all to ourselves which was fab. Our first…

Koh Chang Part 1

So last week to escape the chaos of Songkran in Bangkok we escaped for a few days to the beautiful island of Koh Chang. If you missed the weekend post on how to get there you can read it here. We stayed at the Chai Chet Resort on the west of the island, on Chai Chet beach…

Jim Thompson’s House revisited

Last Sunday we weren’t really sure whether Songkran would have got underway in the city yet (officially running Mon-Weds) so we decided to visit Jim Thompson’s House for a bit of ‘quiet culture’. I took Han and Rich last month and loved it so was more than happy to go again this time with my parents…

BKK to Koh Chang

On Monday as Songkran dawned we set off for Koh Chang just an hours flight south east of Bangkok. We flew out of Suvarnabhumi airport with Bangkok Airways, our round trip costing around £50 each. It is possible to go via bus or train but we chose the quickest travel option with our flight actually only…

On Top of the City.

We’ve just landed back in Bangkok after a fab few days on the beautiful island of Koh Chang. There will be pictures of our escapades there but for now I though I’d share with you some pictures of last Saturday night in Bangkok with the parents; their first experience of a sky bar and needless to…

Review ~ Taste of Thailand Food Tour

On Friday we took my parents on the Taste of Thailand food tour. It was a first for us too and after hearing great reviews and seeing all the pictures on their Facebook page we were excited! We thought it would be a great way to introduce Mum and Dad to the national cuisine as…

Travels of a Food Addict.

My parents are here for their first visit to Bangkok. After a stress free flight and numerous films later they landed to the heat and chaos in our new home city. Wednesday evening we took it easy and went to Red & Whites near our apartment for some food. My mother has suggested I rename…

Let’s Do Brunch.

Apologies for going awol for a few days but my parents have just arrived for the first time in Bangkok and we have had a busy few days…more on that to follow! But right now I want to fill you in on an experience we had for the first time on Sunday that many expats…

Review ~ Masala Art

On Friday, school finished for a two week holiday for Songkran, to celebrate we went to Masala Art in ThongLo. I’ve had Masala Art food at school functions when they get external restaurants in to do the catering and have always been really impressed so was looking forward to actually going to their restaurant. The…

The Best Find. Ever.

A few weeks ago I lamented about how one of the few things I am really missing in my new expat life in Bangkok is, of all possible things, a good ol’ fish finger sandwich. Well, on Saturday all my dreams came true when we popped to Villa Supermarket at Paradise Park for some shopping…
