Pattaya Beach During The Day

What is the difference between Pattaya and Phuket... oh, for many times, I have confused between the two... both are more or less the same, sunshine and beautiful beaches! I have been to Phuket once and that was in the 1980s... and I have been to Pattaya also once and between the two, I think I prefer Pattaya... even a dish over here in Malaysia is called Pattaya rice! (Fried rice being wrapped up with fried egg!)  So I guess Pattaya is more popular among Malaysians?

I had one regret though... going to Pattaya for a day trip from Bangkok is not truly encouraged... Why?  Because during the day, the sun was blazing hot and most of the shops/bars/pubs are closed during the day!   Pattaya only "comes alive" during the night, I believe.... I miss out all the food snacks, the hawkers stalls, the shopping, the "highlights" and all these happen during the night... Well, to experience all these, it is worth staying a night or two... (my opinion....)
During the day... it was all Sun and Light... hahahaa....
.... and "covered head and eyes!
But during the day, you can admire the beautiful Pattaya Beach...
.... though I have to "squint" my eyes whenever I take the pictures.....
and at times I ended up taking "not-so-interesting" scenes... hahaha....
 
But the picture comes alive when two ladies stood here.. LOL...
How about this?  I love this picture!
I must have "me" in it....
Well, that's it... Pattaya City behind me....
Miss the night life though...

  8. When you first mentioned these two places, I thought they were food dishes!!! They are so pretty, have you tried the night life, maybe lots of pretty lights, shopping and food. How far away from home?

  13. This is the first time I hear someone prefers Pattaya instead of Phuket. Maybe you didn't see enough of the island which is very beautiful with clear waters compared to Pattaya. Go again to Phuket!!!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
