*~ My August Trip ~*
This shortest trip planned in very sudden. 
Story behind : A day in Whatsapp group chat, one of my friend was saying that she will flight off to BKK on August, then i just simply reply " i want to go too~~" Then i received a msg in the next early morning : " i found the cheapest MAS ticket flying to Bangkok one! If you want then please go ahead, this is my passport number bla bla bla... "
Honestly i was so sleepy and blur that time, i tried to search from MAS website but couldn't get the price that she mentioned, so i replied her and went out for my cake delivery. After a while, she told me that i miss out some steps so i can't check the price and she was still get the cheapest price. Asked for my passport number but i was at outside, the departure time actually at night which i feel like..hmm..not really want to go and it was super short trip (2D2N).Then i just replied her if she can find my passport number then book it!
When i thought i am smart enough, i got a message from her : " BOOKED!"
OMG!!! i forgot my another friends got my passport number when they book Japan air ticket for me last year. Fine.... This is how's my short short trip successful. hahaha!
Reached Bangkok around 8.30pm, waiting for my sister go to buy sim card (she is going with her boyfriend) , go to find airport cab, it was 10pm when we checked in hotel. 
My hotel ~ Salil Hotel Sukhumvit Soi 11
From the name , you can see this Salil hotel is located at Sukhumvit Soi 11,only 200 meters or 3
minutes walk to Nana BTS Sky Train station.It is a brand new 4 stars hotel.All main business districts, shopping centers, restaurants and tourist attractions are in very close proximity.Only 40 minutes driving distance away from Suvarnabhumi international airport.
Their luxurious rooms are beautifully decorated in Asian-French style with colorful flower theme by 8 types of Asian flowers such as Aunchun, Orchid, Chaba, Parichat, Sakura, Benjamas, Lotus, and Botan.The most important for me to choose a hotel nowadays especially go to different culture different language country is FREE WIFI ! I can survive without their tv show if got WIFI because i can't sleep in hotel room and the only entertainment is watching tv.This hotel provides free wifi internet.

My room is so lovely right? 
My room is not expensive and only 1650baht a night!!! You will never feel alone because it is located at super happening pub/lounge street, the night is still young ! Weeeeee!!!! 
For further details, you can check via their official website Salil Hotel 
Second day, start our cafe hunter journey. LoL! 
I was so glad to have my friend with me because she planned everything and very well planned. Love you Elynn! muacks! *i know you are reading my blog =P *
After complimentary breakfast in hotel, we were heading to have a cup of coffee before shopping. That time is too early for shopping mall *yawnnnnn* 
Casa Lapin Cafe
The story behind: An architect was frustrated that he couldn’t find a good enough cup of coffee to start his morning. This led him to Chiang Mai, where he spent a year seriously studying in the method to make/brew a good coffee.All artful equipment and interior design of Casa Lapin is designed by him.Once you’ve visited a few times, you’ll realize the cafe has a very casual, hang-out feel.There are few branches and we choose Casa Lapin x Ari (Ari is a place name).
Located at Noble Reform Condominium at Phahon Yothin Soi 7, walking distance from Ari BTS Skytrain to here only 5 minutes and you will see the building as picture below.
When you see this name, congrats that you are in right way! Bingo! =)

When i push the door, OMG definitely this is my favourite cafe design!!! blossom flowers on this table are welcoming me ^^

Hand dripped coffee.

Mine is flat white.
My friend ordered hand dripped coffee, it takes longer time to serve.

This is my another place for tea~ consider luxury??? hehehe...
Be a princess for a while to enjoy my nice afternoon tea at Karmakamet cafe *\(^o^)/*
OMG! This is a glass house, soooooo beautiful!
Nature and vintage.
I went there at 3-4pm, so quiet and peace. We didn't call to reserve and how lucky we got a table available! 
Please make reservation before you go to avoid disappointment. There are open for reservation and limited tables for walk in.
Once you step into the cafe, you will have straightaway experience the rustic feel. The environment and woody furnishing makes you feel like in some mountain area. You will be greeted with a aromatic smell of herbs and spices. There is a corner in the cafe that sell Karmakamet’s own aromatherapy products. 
Definitely this is a secret world of herbs , spices, aromas and foods!

This pack of flowers and herbs is welcome gift. You can take it home.
 My order : chamomile tea
as i said before, this cafe is not cheap and chamomile tea cost around 220baht. 
I knew quite a lot of you were interested on this huge mushroom dessert via my instagram posted LoL!
This dessert is not in the menu, you have to ask waitress and available to make it if you are the lucky one ~*
Dessert name : lemon mille feuille (around 290 baht) 

The secret corner to selling their aromas, essential oils etc.
Karmakamet products are famous in Thailand.
Their products list.
I bought body lotion, the smell makes me relaxing. Price around 800 baht.
I had a wonderful relaxing + luxury tea break at Karmakamet, i must visit it again and again for my Bangkok trip in the future. * soooooooooo love it *

Ok, now i am teaching how to go this secret garden, listen carefully! (hmm....sorry , it's "read carefully" LoL)
It is located at the small street, not easy to find it out.
- Take cab or BTS to Emporium shopping mall. 
* BTS station : Phrom Phong (Exit 2)
- In the Emporium shopping mall, find "Emporium Suites by Chatrium "
* Please go to information counter to ask, don't waste your time and energy to find ok?
- Out from Emporium Suite, turn your left and go straight.
- Walk about 3 minutes, pass by a parking bay, pay attention to your left.
There are one direction board with title [ Karmakamet Secret World ] , follow the direction and the secret garden is in front of you. =)

Don't be surprise that only foods and cafes to recommend in this post, because....
my 2D2N trip is only food...foods....and foodsssss..... My goodness, i felt horrible too LoL!
After our shopping at Platinum mall, here is our dinner place.
Thon Krueng ~ A busy and Thai traditional restaurant at the most happening street at Thonglor 13.
The end of my day? 
Nope! both of us finished 5 dishes and my friend wanted to go After You where opposite of our dinner place. AhhhhhhH!!!!! i am very very full my dear ~~~~~
So.... to achieve her dream, we ordered a baby size chocolate toast. The taste is....erm erm why they apply salted butter on this toast?!!! so weird and i dislike it since i already tried thick toast from Taiwan and Korea (Korea one is the best!), this baby size toast cost around 150baht.
And finally i can go back to hotel and rest well. ZzZzZzzz.....
Last day in Bangkok, my flight time at 9pm so i have more than enough time to "sweep" all snacks food for my pets and humans hehehe~~~
Is the picture above makes you excited???
Yeah... i was at Sanrio Hello Kitty House in the next day of grand opening, this is the biggest Sanrio Hello Kitty House in Southeast Asia,Thailand's is the first to combine coffee shop, spa and gift shop all under one roof.It is located at Siam Square One with 3 levels. Basement is selling souvenir and accessories and spa treatment, you can enjoy spa in spa treatment room fully occupied with hello kitty decoration, provided services like manicure/massage/facial, it should be happiness till die if you are die hard fans of her. Upper floor is cafe, selling foods/cakes/drinks. 
Long queue ~~~ we were in the queue too. I was visited Korea / Hong Kong /Japan and Taiwan in this 2 years,but i never pay visit to Hello Kitty themed park or cafe because their foods are not in good reviews and sorry to say that i am not interested in Hello Kitty but just curious how's beautiful inside. After a while we saw some peoples go in without queue-up,they all speak in Thai.Hmm... don't care...follow them ! LoL!
So why the peoples queue up at outside????? I really don't know~~~ 
Too bad that we only able to stay in cafe but not allowed to go down basement, there are still closing for private.
Sanrio Hello Kitty House Bangkok
Siam Square One
BTS nearer : Siam
Mango Tango!
This is their new address, i think you are difficult to search this new address from google,it's not up to date.
It was move to Siam Square Soi 3 and check the map below.
2 cargo containers into the mango world. First container is for order, and you must place order before go to second container. Waitress is not allowed you to go in if without order because limited seats inside the box (i think should be around 20 seats + ). After order, yet to get permissions to go in for a seat. You have to wait at outside until they calling you.
Taste is good =)
Had my lunch at Greyhound Cafe before heading to airport.
First established in Thailand in the 80s as a casual men’s wear outlet, they have expanded to food business in 1997. Quoted by the Fortune Magazine as “the Hottest Seats in Bangkok”, Greyhound Cafe is the first fashion cafe in Bangkok offering the food concept with creative twists in a casual dining experience.
When fashion meets food, their seats need to wear clothes too LoL!
If you always go to Bangkok, you should familiar with this cafe because their branches are located at all places that you must go.All Greyhound Cafes have a contemporary and industrial chic look.
No worries, prices are reasonable =)
If you’re looking for a thirst quenching drink beyond the usual smoothie or milkshake, try Granita.They come in three flavours which is Thai Tea, Yok Lor and Nom Yen. Thai Tea is my favourite and a must drink in my every Thai meals. Thai tea granita not bad but quite sweet.
Their signature fried chicken wings and taste is fabulous! MUST TRY!!!! *finger licking good*
Tom yam kung
Healthy cocktail.
Another must try! Banoffee~~~ 
Oreo crumb, sea salt caramel,banana and vanilla fresh cream in a bottle to makes you feel so good.Wee~~~ so delicious! 
* have to eat faster before turn to warm in room temperature *
Greyhound Cafe @ Siam Center 3rd floor
BTS nearer : Siam
Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 11:00 am ~ 10:00 pm
Check their website for another branches location / food drink menu -->
I must buy souvenirs for my princesses in every trip everywhere i visited. Remembering i bought this brand (Zeal made in New Zealand) at Dubai and the price is quite expensive. I must buy this every time i go Thailand,so lucky there are promotion for this brand when i go, this is only part of them LoL!!! I don't like to shopping pets stuff in Chatuchak, they are actually selling expensive and foods quality is very low. This is the only place i went to "sweep" all for my princesses ~ Siam Paragon grocery pets corner,tons of snacks for choose.
The end of my Bangkok shortest trip, thanks to my lovely friend a.k.a tour guide Elynn! hehehe~~~
I try my best to tell you all information or direction of the places i went, hope it is helpful. 
Thanks for reading. =)
