Exploring +66 with Mx.
I should probably start off with sharing some of my favorite outfits from the new collection,
just launched on www.ohvola.com:
Noveau Eyelet Top in White
This is probably my only three quart sleeved top, which I foresee myself wearing many times
cos' its sucha staple and goes really well with most bottoms. Gonna keep this in both colors.
This was love at first sight, with different shades of blue coming together so beautifully.
Fabric's thin knit so it's perfect for our weather.
Following our sold-out Opulence Rosette Frock, I knew we had to do a re-make of the
gorgeous 3D floral fabric. Love the luxurious touch to it, perfect for CNY don't you think?
Marni Shift Dress in Dusty Pink
Pastel pink-mint has always been one of my favorite combinations, they never go wrong.
I'm also very fond of shift dresses, cos' they are timeless and very versatile. Keeping both colours as well.
Now, back to my Bangkok trip with the boyfriend ;)
It was pretty impromptu, and I was very caught up with the preparations for our warehouse sale.
Mx prepared everything for the trip - from booking of flight tickets to itinerary,
and I really appreciate him for the effort.
Mx requested for the bed to be decorated with rose petals to surprise me, haha who would think of that?
But it was sucha sweet gesture to make me happy, and I was so touched. It was pretty late in the night
when we checked in, so Mx suggested Asiatique which only closes at midnight for supper.
Asiatique The Riverfront, 2194,
Charoenkrung 72-74 Rd. Rd., Wat Phraya Krai,
Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok 10120 Thailand
I haven't been to Asiatique, and wasn't expecting much from it but I was so wrong.
The lighting, ambiance and great weather (18 degree Celsius) were awesome.
I loved it there, and it was sucha great start to my trip.
Live band, good thai food, breeze in our hair. What a way to end our first night in bkk.
According to him, it's so much cheaper getting his work shirts done here.
GASTRO 1/6 @ RMA
This is definitely not the easiest place to locate,
but we were really lucky to have asked the right passerby for directions.
It got me pretty tickled, luckily we were quick in deciding what we wanted.
I read from the reviews, they are usually shorthanded so try not to visit them on a weekend.
but I loved my French Toast topped with tons of fresh fruit, and it tasted as good as it looks.
We wiped out everything on the plate in no time ;)
This Topshop-inspired piece was love at first sight.
I really love the subtle pleats, and how it goes so well with any statement necklace.
Bangkok Airways @ Siam Paragon where we were given
complimentary refreshments and if you're in good time, a 15-minute massage at the VIP lounge.
We paid 900baht ($36) each, which I thought was really worth the money.
Situated at Petchburi Soi 19, this is a must-visit.
I've always loved cut-outs or dresses with unique detail, so this is definitely a must-get for me.
The best part, it works beautifully with any normal strapless bra.
Som Tam Nua, Siam Square was pretty disappointing overall
so we headed out to get street food right after.
Stumbled upon Sweet Toast situated at level one of Digital Gateway Siam Square
They actually bring in Tokyo Bananas, any huge fans of them like us?
This is a hot favorite among our friends, cos' the fit is really good.
Fully lined, so you don't have to worry about this piece in white being sheer.
I love it, especially with the slices of coconut flesh soo good.
I'm also very grateful to my nail sponsor, Sensual Nails Spa https://www.facebook.com/snspa
for giving me beautiful (& healthy) nails that last for weeks. Gonna blog a proper entry about them next!
Kaseth nawamin, Bangkok, Thailand 10230
Phone: 00 66 8 3077 3738
This was definitely the highlight of the trip, I've been wanting to visit Chocolate Ville for the longest time.
I'm glad we did, even though it was out of town and we had to book a private vehicle for 1800baht ($72)
cos according to the hotel reception, most cab drivers won't be willing to send us/don't know the way.
and hand it to the cab drivers to try your luck. This definitely saves you quite abit of money.
The restaurant opens only at around 4ish 5pm, but do reach earlier cos' everywhere here's photo-worthy.
out later that the different seatings are actually under one restaurant. Basically, we had to collect
a electronic donut from the reception area for table reservation. When our table was ready, the donut
started blinking to notify us and we were pretty lucky to have gotten one that was facing the river.
almost like Disneyland and I still can't get over the fact that admission to Chocolate Ville is free.
DAMNOEN SADUAK FLOATING MARKET
We booked the group tour to the floating market on our last day for 1500baht ($60) and to our surprise,
trips to the elephant village and tiger zoo were included as well which was really worth the money.
After the ride, I thought it was very cruel to the elephants. Not going to do it again.
Every time someone from my paddle boat showed interest in something,
the boat gets pulled right next to the shop and you can practically find anything there.
Met up with Ange and Stephanie, before we headed back to Singapore!
This has got to be my best bkk trip til date, and all credit goes to the boyfriend <3
Lastly, I hope this doesn't make you too hungry.
