两个星期前，我到曼谷拍摄一集的《亚洲时尚风》。记得来临的星期二（Oct 6), 晚上 8点， U 频道。想看更多的照片和了解多些时尚贴示可以留意明天出版的 i周刊哦！
About 2 weeks ago, I jetted off to Bangkok to shoot an episode of Fashion Asia. You can catch it on Channel U, this coming Tuesday October 6, at 8pm! For more pictures and fashion tips, check out this upcoming issue of i-WEEKLY, out tomorrow!
We were put up at Siam City Hotel. The room was beautiful! It may be rather small and cramped, but it is clean and has a homely decor. From where I'm standing, there's a sofa and a work space, so I would say it's got everything to make it convenient for the guest. I would give it 5 stars although I'm not sure of its actual ranking.
Every morning we would gather here before we set out. Feels European!
This was taken outside the Oceanarium at Siam Paragon. Princess Ariel from Disney?
There was a local fashion designer showcase going on at Siam Paragon and we gate-crashed it, with permission of course.
We had dinner at this restaurant owned by the lady on the menu. Here with me, Clarence Lee. He's a great traveling companion! The last time I traveled with him was many years ago, when I did a Sydney supplement shoot with 8DAYS. We had so much fun!
Morning glory. Highly recommended by Clarence!
Crabmeat and salted fish fried rice. I was so hungry that day I ordered another medium plate to go around. 😉

The regular face of FASHION ASIA, Keith Png! This is my first time on a trip with him and I certainly hope it's not the last. He's got a very easy-going personality and a naturally charming disposition. We had a lot of good laughs and high-energy moments. I like him so much that I hijacked the seat from his partner on our return flight and kept him talking the whole journey back~ Oops, sorry Keith! Haha!
Because it was a long weekend holiday (Hari Raya), a lot of Singaporeans were also in Bangkok. We were filming at one of the boutiques in Siam Center when this group of fellow Singaporeans saw us and apporached us for a picture. How can we say no when they're all so cute!
Speaking of bumping into people, V ran into me while I was at Siam Paragon and asked if I was from Singapore. I later found out that she's from Cambodia and she actually recognised me from Little Nyonya, which she said was a huge hit back home. Wow!
I've never tried this before. Keith bought this for everyone at Chatuchak Market and said it's grass jelly with brown sugar. It's quite yummy, and perfect for a hot day but it would have been even better if the ice was crushed much finer.
They look so pretty, almost like those Japanese mock-up food for dollhouses. Actually I don't quite know what they are because I didn't try it. I think it's yam or some sweet paste inside? Anyone who knows what this is, please comment ok? Thanks!
Here's everyone at a lifestyle shop on the last day of shoot after the last hosts' links were done. We ended at 8.45 pm and quickly proceeded from Central World to have a nice seafood dinner before this famous restaurant (I don't know the name, sorry) closed for the night. I didn't have any pictures of that cos' everyone was so hungry, we just want to eat and relax. You know some of the crew members from the previous pictures, so here we also have the producer Huiting and scriptwriter Lili flanking Alvin (make-up artiste), and the Thai guide Tom next to Keith.
We were up at 4.45am so we could reach the airport in time for the first flight out. Here we are basking in the flattering morning sun, still somewhat sleepy.
More pictures after the programme airs on Tuesday, Oct 6, 8pm on Channel U… 🙂
