Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai (Part II)

Walking out from the hotel with the guidance of TripAdvisor, i chose the best nearby local food- Mr.Kai Restaurant.
  DSLR-A550093

It was about 15 minutes walk to the restaurant. Along the way, we realized that houses in Chiang Mai are unique as they built their houses by their own preferences. Unlike Msia, we can't simply change the property design unless you are rich enough to bought the whole land and built your own house. Else, if your house suddenly appearing 3D in a row of houses, welcome to the saman world.

The property price in CM is jumping from MYR 100K in average.

Walking under the big hot sun is not fun thou (39 celcius!!)... If it's not because of these nice houses designs and wall arts that kept up my courage to keep walking, i will just surrender and call up a red cab... Make sure to bring an UV protection umbrella with you and check the weather forecast before you travel. We walked like Iron man on the first day because i forgot to bring umbrella over!!

The 15 minutes walk finally ended. That's the big square bright yellow banner of Mr.Kai Restaurant!

This place was crowded when i reached. Mostly are foreigners.

They have varieties of foods. From appetizers to main dish to the desserts.

We ordered Khao Pad, mushroom plate, and Khao Soi.

FILE111

Khao Pad is fried rice. Fried rice is the basic for the Chinese. I believe that if the fried rice taste good, the others from the menu will not be too bad.Fried rice recipes will vary widely, depending on which countries' fried rice you have tried. This Thai version fried rice is worth to try although i still prefer the Malaysian's ;)

FILE097

This mushroom plate is good to go with the Khao Pad.

This is probably the best i have tried in Mr.Kai's Restaurant, Khao Soi.  Khao Soi is a curry mixed with coconut-flavoured noodle soup which is famous in the Northern Thai. 

I think that Mr.Kai Restaurant mostly visited by the foreigners. I don't see many locals dine in the restaurant, so i assumed that the rating was high due to the votes from the foreigners. Personally, i think that the food that i ordered were just average , but i love their fruits blended especially the coconut shakes and the guava shakes.

Continue searching for the nearby attractions by TripAdvisor...

One thing..

Never be so dependent to the location map showing in the TripAdvisor as most of them are not accurate. (I ended up wasted time walked to some random people's house or standing at the middle of nowhere while the phone's navigator is buzzing me with "You have reach your destination" for sooo many times)

Best nearby at that moment : Wat Chedi Luang

DSLR-A550201

Wat Chedi Luang is a Buddhist temple in the historic centre of Chiang Mai. The current temple grounds were originally made up of three temples — Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Ho Tham and Wat Sukmin.

Wat Ho Tham

DSLR-A550209

Chiang Mai is overflowing with ancient Buddhist Temples (Wats). Every temple has their story behind . Visiting temples blindly is definitely boring but not until you truly understand their history. Well, if you are going by yourself without tour guide, at least Mr.G can help you understand the temples more. This will definitely a huge credit in your trip!

There goes my first day in Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai / Chiang Rai 2015

I am back from ChiangMai!!

This trip was totally ALLSOME! First trip that i departed with a backpack and back to Malaysia EMPTY HANDED *long story*

We only spent about MYR 1.5k per person for the whole trip and it could be lesser! We had all the good foods, good accommodations, good transportation and good experiences!

 I will include everything here and also list down some tips for those who is planning for Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai trip here ;)

We took a morning flight. It was a 2.5 hrs journey from KLIA 2 to the Chiang Mai airport. It's just good enough to recharge the energy and spirit for the first day in CM.

We arrived the airport and had warm greetings from the staff. Walked out from the airport from gate 8 and we saw a lot taxi-meter. However, taxi-meter here don't seem like a real metered taxi as they don't use the meter for far as i experienced. A man walked to us and offer a ride for 200 baht. From the map i searched earlier, the hotel that we booked is just approximately 4 km from airport, so we offered him a 100 baht and that made the deal. A 100 baht here worth a lot to us as he explained everything about CM in detailed , where to go, what to eat, and even bring us to get our SIM cards done! He suggested us to take the AIS card and reload for the internet data and it only costed 150 baht to get the unlimited data for 7 days! Here, i must say that their telco is far more better than ours as they really have the good speed and the coverage is almost everywhere. We managed to deal at 600 baht /day with Benz (our taxi driver) for the following days.


First day checked in  - B2 Thippanate 
Add: 67/6 Thippanate Road, Haiya, Muang, Wua Lai, Chiang Mai, Thailand 50000

281245_15042016160026980948

B2 Thippanate is a popular pick for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel lies 7.0 km from the city center and provides accessibility to important town facilities. It is quite near to the airport , so for those who arrived in the wee hour, i think this is quite a good choice for you. Of course, do remark on your reservation that you will be arrived around that time when you make the reservation online. I booked through Agoda.com and it is only about MYR 60/night (included tax).

Its interior looks more like a serviced apartment to me , simple yet nice. They  provides Wi-Fi at both public area and in rooms.

DSC03623

The room is big and clean. No noise pollution at all since it is located inside a residence area.

DSC03626

In this trip, i learnt that no toothpaste and toothbrush provided in every hotel that we checked in. Be sure to prepare yourself for that.

DSC03628

To get out from this to the nearby attractions and markets, you can either rent a bike or a scooter from the hotel, or you can just walk. It is just about a 10 minutes walking distance to Chiang Mai Gate where you can enjoy the local street food there. If you are there on Saturday, you can even go to the Wualai Road Saturday Market.

Let's explore this beautiful city!

Out of all the must-try waffle list, we chose the salty one to go first! I love eggs! All sort of eggs are the enemies of my little appetite, especially the egg benedict!!! OUUUU YUMMMM~~~~ So, the one with egg definitely catched my eyes first ;)

TADAAAA!!!!

MOO MOO (RM26)
It is waffle served with sirloin beef, cheddar, slaw, relish, crispy bacon and berries BBQ sauce and waffle potato fries !

It is good but i prefer if it use other sauce like the normal BBQ sauce or something else, the berries BBQ sauce maybe just lil bit too sour and salty for me ;) Their waffle potatos fries are awesome!!

Oh ! i like their service too! Efficient and friendly!

One day trip in Bentong


I am experiencing amazing life with never ending activites ! But first, i need someone who willing to be as crazy as me, else my dare-to-do-anything-personality will not be reveal ;o

Went to Happy Farm in Bentong past weekend. It is an hour drive from the town. Upon reaching the farm, we were like suddenly became so excited , guess there goes the name of Happy Farm XD.

This place is amazingly fresh and green. It looks like somewhere is Australia, baby blue sky and the evergreen land. All kinds of organic plants can be found here. I love the farmers' life here. They are living under such fresh and healthful environment with no stress.

Back to the basic! But first, take a selfie of our happy moment in this Happy Farm!
