One of the stores I really loved in Bangkok was Loft at Siam Discovery. This is a really nice wasteland, and I have been to Loft in Tokyo. I don’t even have to buy a lot. Whenever I see colorful objects and stationery, my eyes are already getting full. Just leave me here for two hours and I’m good.
I wish some visionary businessman would bring LOFT to Manila. Check this out.
Another store I hoarded in was Uniqlo in Central World
straight to the Undercover collab with Jun Takahashi.
I bought tons of basics, pajama pants, and clothes for Christian
Can’t wait for Uniqlo to open at Mall of Asia. I’ll be there in a couple of days for an exclusive preview!!
Next, Joey took me and Jeroen to the Chatuchak weekend market via Mr. Chim’s van.
I think I’m too old for Chatuchak. I really suffered through the heat, but was able to get some loot from this nameless store.
Chatuchak is where you might see artists selling their own wares, like this one. I had him sign this really comfy tee that cost 250 baht.
Spotted Manny Pacquiao among the world’s most recognizable icons (150 baht each)
We crossed over across the street and saw this nature-loving tourist walking barefoot in the 38-degree heat
Maybe he was looking for this store
Saw some unpolished furniture. Nice design, bad finish
Then back to the hotel for a much needed shower and merienda before heading out again.
Yes, we love the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok.
And here’s my loot for the day. Thank you Joey!
