Eco After Me

A P4230211_副本

A few days ago I received a "mystery box" from the people of The Thinking Cube.

The Thinking Cube is formed by four Singapore Polytechnic graduates, Ong Ting En, Lyrenna Loh, Lim Li Yi and Melissa Lim. They founded The Thinking Cube, while working with the National Environment Agency (NEA) during one of their final year projects.

Their campaign, Eco After Me, is an environmental communications campaign held in conjunction with Youth for The Environment Day, and aims to increase offline interaction and adoption of environmental habits amongst the youth.

The project is centered on the idea of spreading the message through pranks. Furthermore, my friend was the mascot for their event held at Scape on 18 & 19 April 2014.

Overall, I felt that this is a great chance for us youths to do our part for the environment, and it doesn't take much effort to do so!!!

For instance, you can use your own water bottle and refill water instead of buying them elsewhere. Or reducing your showering time by 10 mins, you can save tons of water by doing that! Or even switching off lights, your electronic gadgets when you're not using them.

By doing so, you can also post pictures and sharing them on Instagram by #EcoAfterMe and #BeEcoWithMe.

A P4061148_副本

Took the lift down to basement and saw this. Hahahaha! Talk about surveillance camera fail!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!

A P4061153_副本

We all decided to have street food for breakfast that day, so we all roamed around the street, got the food that we wanted and then settle down at one of the street stall (You must buy their food in order to sit at their place to eat luhh)

A P4061161_副本

Had their Chicken Cutlet Rice and its really really cheap!! (I forgot how much it was already)

A P4061167_副本

After we had our scrumptious breakfast, we then walk all the way to the train station, took all the way to Mo Chit station where Chatuchak is located.

LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN!!!

Didn't really took much photo while shopping cuz the crowd there is CRAZY!!!! If you can wear lesser! I see some Caucasians men that took off their tops over there cuz its just that humid!!!

Here are just some photos that I casually took while taking a break from shopping.

Shop for 5 hours straight and decided take taxi back to the hotel rooms to put our barang barangs with Joyce, Angie and Kaizhi while the rest went to look for Jiaqi because she didn't buy any data sim card and we initially set the meeting place at the train station. So yeap! A data sim card is important if you're going there in groups. :)

A P4061228_副本

Was camwhoring with Joyce and suddenly Andy came to "SHOW OFF" his buys to us. LOLOLOLOLOOL!!! That explains this picture.

A P4061239_副本

Slacked in the hotel room till evening where everyone had enough rest. We then head out to the Zi Char stalls near Central World there to have our dindinz!!

After we had our dinner, some of us went our own separate ways cuz some wanted to visit After You cafe, some wanted to go massage, and some wanted to do manicure. So yeap.

Visited After You Cafe at Central World with Andy, Jiaqi and Angie. There's always still room for desserts!!!

Bangkok Travelogue (Day 2)

Hello all~
Here's day 2 of my Bangkok Travelogue. If I never recall wrongly, I woke up quite early, like around 5 - 6am!!! Scrolled through my Twitter and Instagram, saw Joyce boarding her flight and her instagram photo and I went to comment, and I went back to sleep aftermath. LOLOLOL!!!

A P4050937_副本

Was the first one to wake up, and stupid Angie just have to take her own sweet time preparing.. tsktsk! Hahahahaha!

A P4050946_副本

Got ready and headed down with the rest for hotel breakfasts!
P/S: That is not my nails. #MyNailsNotThatChio

A P4050949_副本

My simple and not so yummy breakfasts. The street stalls outside the hotel is even more yummy lor in my opinion. Andand I won't forget the Taiwan lady that openly cut my queue and took my the toasted bread that I've faithfully waited for a whole 3mins!!! PFFT!!!

A P4050950_副本

A SUPER DUPER CHIO GROUP PHOTO TO START OFF DAY 2!
I'm totally digging this photo! It looks so marvelously taken. Kudos to Meldric for his long arms!!!

A P4050954_副本

First stop for the day; Platinum Fashion Mall. I think I'm loving this place and gonna favorite it and make it my must go place whenever I come to Bangkok already!!! This mall practically has EVERYTHING!!!! TIAN AH~

A P4050955_副本

In the midst of shopping. Didn't have anymore photos taken other than this cuz I was busy walking around finding clothes of my size! #SadBoy95!!!

While shopping, I got separated from the rest and stick with Kaizhi all the time. I was actually quite surprised that he could tahan walking around the mall for 2 - 3 hours long!!!

A P4050968_副本

Decided to take a break with Kaizhi, had lunch at McDonald's and decided to try out their signature Pork Burger!!!

Kaizhi also bought 2 Pie's, one of them is Taro Pie and the other I forgot what it's called already. It's what Indians eat with Tosai one, along with their curry....

A P4050961_副本


A huge selfie while waiting for Kaizhi to buy our food.

So while having my lunch, I got reminded that I wanted to buy the Chanel case that I've been dying to buy ever since it was out, and I did remember seeing it along the street stalls selling it. But I thought Platinum Mall would be cheaper, so I decided to go back there to try my luck, dragging Kaizhi along of course.

A P4050978_副本

After I bought my Chanel cases (I bought it in both black and clear casings)
Kaizhi also bought some electronic gadgets that he is eyeing for, so kudos to us!!! We bought all the stuff from Level 6 of Platinum Fashion Mall. There's only 1 escalator up to level 6 from level 5 of Platinum. (Just to let you guys know)

A P4050980_副本

Was kinda tired from all the walking and bargaining. Decided to take a rest (again) at their foodcourt. IT WAS SOOOO CROWDED AT LUNCH TIME! The crowd is crazy!!!

Met up with the rest, and we had A&W for lunch (the rest did, not me) LOLOLOL!!!
After that, some of us went back to the hotel to put down our stuff. While on our way back, here comes the legendary story of Angie with her Mangoes.

THE MANGO STORY

So it all began when Angie bought her Mangoes from the street stalls. She was happily taking it with her hands. As we are heading back to our hotel, we're required to cross the overhead bridge. So when there's a overhead bridge, there's stairs. 

So when Angie was climbing the stairs, unknowingly she fell and we didn't know what happen cuz everything just happen in a speed of light. She fell and all her mangoes just flew out of the carrier that she was holding. 

*CUES MUSIC*!!!

So when she fell (thank god she didn't roll down the stairs), she was holding on to the inedible part of the mango which I didn't know what it was, its just inedible. The edible ones all flew out of the bag.

And just when her mangoes flew out of her bag, there was a road sweeper standing right infront of her. Looking at her... Speechless....

SO YEAP! That's the legendary story of Angie and her Mangoes! #YourMangoRice

THE END

Had desserts over at Mr Jones. Orphanage. They sell many cakes over there! One of them is the Kit Kat Cake which I posted on Instagram.

The price range is around 40 - 200 Baht which is around $1.50 - $8 SGD if I didn't recall wrongly.

Oh did I mention that Joyce joined us when we're at Platinum Mall? Hahha! Yeap! Joyce was super "ONZ" by joining us on day 2 at she had work the previous day. WOOHOOO! 

After we're done at Mr Jones. Orphanage. We then head down to the basement toilet. It's super cool! Check out the background behind Joyce at the photo above. YES! THATS THE MIRROR where girls get to sit down and touch up whatever they want to touch up! DAMN COOL PLZZZZ!

A P4051092_副本

After which, we then walked over to Siam Square, which is pretty near M.B.K! Just a tip for you guys, if you're intending to go Siam Square. be prepared to fight your way through the crowd. ITS EXTREMELY CROWDED! 

Initially we're intending to go Goldilocks Cafe. But didn't in the end cuz we couldn't find our way there. But the Thai's are damn awesome please! We didn't buy anything from them, but we tried asking them for directions, and they helped us willingly, they even went through the trouble to ask their next stall neighbors to help us as well. So kind pls! Where to find such nice people in Singapore?!!!

A P4051097_副本

Saw these super cute MCM iPhone pouch which has a mirror inside! #WhyAmINotAiPhoneUser?!!!!

After squeezing with the crowd at the long stretch at Siam Square. We all decided to take tuktuk's back to the massage palor near our hote.
