Took a walk in the morning to the market nearby (Gim Yong or Kim Yong, not too sure about the pronounciation). On the way, we stumbled upon this quaint traditional house.
|Looks like a typical Malaysian kampung house|
We were amazed by how clean Gim Yong market (Coordinates: 7.007639, 100.469986) was, not the grimy wet markets in Malaysia.
|Clean streets and walkways|
|And just what is he selling?|
We had breakfast there, found a shop selling local cakes and such.
|Sorry, didn't have my flash on me|
Then it was a bout of shopping at the Plaza market.
|Handbags as well|
It was then off to Robinson Department Store (Coordinates: 7.003226, 100.468879) for more shopping. We found a simple shop selling really authentic thai food (read: flaming hot stuff) located along a lane behind Robinson (7.002639, 100.469167).
|We love this down-to-earth kind of shops|
|Limited choice, but the taste more than made up for it|
|Caution: I was too liberal with the gravy on my rice, and paid the price (gulped down pints of water)|
Went back to the hotel and Brendan said he wanted a foot massage. Since Cat and I didn't feel like it he went on his own.
|An easy job for the masseuse, should've asked for a discount|
|Same as last year|
|Brendan loves this part|
While Brendan was at the massage parlor, we spent our tea time at Chester's Grille.
|Where would I be without my 55bt cafe mocha?|
Dinner was at the usual tom yam shop (Coordinates: 7.007292, 100.470903) behind The Regency Hotel.
|She remembers us|
|Authentic southern thai tom yam|
