Thailand day 2 - (still) in Bangkok


It was nice to wake up because we just felt like waking up.  No alarm clocks.  No knocking on the doors - just our plain reflexes that got us up.  With no itinerary in mind, we freshened up then headed to the dining area for our breakfast buffet.  Since some of the staff are Pinoys, the food was only 30 percent Thai which means nothing too much to rave about.  I started with brewed coffee and Bry had his plate of fruits.  We ate and talked like best friends for almost two hours - teasing each other like newlyweds (ay, newly wends nga pala kami ;p). Oh the bliss of just being together, discussing random and silly ideas and enjoying every bite of our hearty meal.

Since we stood up with happy tummies, we decided to hit to the nearby tiangges to burn a few calories.  We scored a few pasalubongs for family and closest friends then chose the street food place where we can have authentic Thai food. I had Tom Yum and Bry had Pad Thai – and once again, I was delighted to have these wonderful flavors explode in my palette.  We snatched a Nuttela-Banana Crepe and Guava as we went up to our room.  The rest of the early afternoon was spent inactively with non-sense chattering on the side - don’t you love this?

In the late afternoon, we opted to people watch in the park and admire that we are actually together under the Bangkok slowly fading sun.  It was the honeymoon that we booked first – and when I say first, we did not have a wedding venue yet when we booked hotels in Thailand.  It was just beyond amazing to be in a place where you were discussing about before – what we have been planning and praying for all happened (and is almost halfway done?! Nooo!)

Since we have been practically eating all day, we decided to have late dinner at the nearby food stalls near the river.  This food place already caught my eye because it was a place with 3 things street plus foreigners plus Thai food = great place to dine!  We ended our meal inside a coffee shop because my company needs, badly needs tea – go figure! :D   

We walked hand in hand under the smoggy streets.  There was nothing neither romantic nor lovely on the roads we were crossing but the feeling that you are free to be together made everything sparkly.  I have a man I like and love and I am coming home with him tonight.
