Bought the prepaid sim card at airport.

We stayed in Lemontea Hotel at Pratunam for 4 days and change to Baiyoke Sky Hotel at Ratchaprarop for 2 days.

Love the stay in Lemontea hotel. The room is clean and bright. The staff are friendly and helpful, they will always try to help you get the meter-ed cab. Not to mention, there is a 7-11 convenient next to it!.

The braised pork knuckles is good! They are so tender and flavorful and the fatty part actually literally melts on your tongue.

According to the girls, this is a must try dessert in Bangkok. For me, they are just mango mango mango in many variations of dessert. But the mango is sweet and fresh. I had the mango and strawberry slushy and the girls shared the signature mango sticky rice and mango pudding. I can see the happiness from their face after the desserts.

Buldojang Korean Style Chinese Restaurant – Desa Sri Hartamas

Today, Lap Cheong brought me to Bul Do Jang for dinner. Bul Do Jang is a korean style chinese restaurant located in Desa Sri Hartamas. Same row with Guardian and hiding on the second floor of the shop-lots.

There are merely few tables and a private room in the restaurant. I bet they are always full house during peak hours. Not sure if you can make reservations but they do delivery around Desa Sri Hartamas Area.

Ultimate Guideline to Get the Best Deals in E commerce [2015]

I have been shopping online since i was in secondary school. Back then there’s not many eCommerce platform so i start with buying bags and accessories on local forums and dealing with forum sellers. There are so many eCommerce platforms now, you can shop for anything in anytime and everywhere. I am a regular in zalora, lazada, taobao, ebay and few platforms now. Here is a few tips on buying online:-

1) If you do not need it urgently, try to put it on cart and don’t check out.
Very soon they will send you a discount code for you to buy the items on cart. Tried this in eBay and Zalora, and it works!

2) Always check before you make any purchase.
I will always google the things i want to buy before i check out. Check on the reputation of the seller, check on the reviews of the products and check if the platform has a good after-sale services.
From my experiences, Lelong and Mudah will not follow up complaints. Its best to COD with the seller in Lelong and Mudah, you can always check on the item before you give out your hard-earned money.

3) Check on these places before you pay.

Check on the social networks. You need to make you own judgement after checking out all the reviews. There is no zero complaints e commerce platforms out there.

4) Check if there is any discount code.
Do you know you can always google for discount code? There are many good websites out there for you to compare prices and get seasonal disounts.

5) Contact the eCommerce platforms first.
Contact the eCommerce platforms first if you have any complaints for the products or service. Things will go smoothly if you just contact them to solve the problems.

It’s really convenient to be able to shop online. Be nice to the seller, be polite to the e commerce customer service, be patient for the delivery and take control of your budget. Stop impulse shopping.

I will list out all the reputable e commerce platforms in next post. Stay tuned. [P/S: Save up for cybersales 2015! It’s coming soon]

I love this Dr Jart dis-a-pore bb cream. It works amazingly to conceal my pores and doesn’t look so obvious. Not sticky, not oily and the most important is no breakouts.
