Shopping in Bangkok, Part 2
Posted on

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

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.

Why not?

Spotted Manny Pacquiao among the world’s most recognizable icons (150 baht each)

Chatuchak

We crossed over across the street and saw this nature-loving tourist walking barefoot in the 38-degree heat

No shoes

Maybe he was looking for this store

Would you shop here?

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!

I saw a tourist barefoot in front of the Insular building in Ayala. Oh my goodness. I wanted to shake him. “We’re in a tropical country BUT YOU ARE NOT IN THE BEACH.”

I love those uniform dresses from that nameless store. I wish somebody would do that here in Manila. Shopping in Bangkok is different and I love it! Have you visited Suan Lum Night Market? It’s better than Chatuchak, in my opinion. More artists sell their wares there. More home stuff, too.   [Reply]CVS Reply:June 11th, 2012 at 6:00 PMI’ll try the night market next time 🙂 [Reply]Thysz Reply:June 11th, 2012 at 11:24 PMHi Katherine Q!

I also love stationary stores! Every time I’m sad or had a stressful day…I go to one of these…and wander around, and well, buy myself (lots of!) pens. haha

I do hope someone will bring Loft in Manila…or maybe you should. 😉
