DRESS: ZARA // SUNNIES: KATE SPADE

Long time no see for my outfit posts, but here you go! Finally found this dress here in Bangkok. Have been looking for it everywhere in Norway, but sold out everywhere. What better place to look than here where they keep their summer collections a bit longer than in Europe. Big patches, badges and pins is something we have seen a lot this summer, and almost all designers were showing it in their SS2016 collections. It even seems like this trend continues into the autumn. It creates a little more edge to you look, love it!

veganerie concept

Seems like it all about food nowadays! But its true, the lifestyle here in Bangkok is really all about food. The Thai people really enjoy having a nice meal. Yesterday we wanted to try something new, and headed to this vegan friendly café/restaurant which serves the most delicious and mouth watering dishes you can every imagine. Everything just looked so tempting, and I had a really hard time deciding what to go for. They have everything from quinoa salads and acaii bowls, to healthy desserts like raw brownies. Veganerie Concept can be found in Sukhumvit 24,  just behind the Benjasiri Park. A bit difficult to find, but a well worth visit. I am going back for sure!

Juice it!

Eating healthy in Bangkok is not as easy as I thought it was going to be. Before going here I was expecting a diet filled with veggies, fruits and lean dishes. However, that is not the case as all the dishes are filled with sugar, salt, or sugar and salt based sauces. Finding something healthy to eat if you are on the run is neither too easy. My go to in cases like these are thus juices. 100% cold pressed juice with a mix of both vegetables and fruits. Tempting, fresh and tasty! Just a little tip from me to you if you are having the same challenges as me here in Bangkok 🙂

Cultural stop

Did a little cultural stop at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. A 8 floor building with a mix of little stores, cafes and galleries/exhibitions. The scene of people suddenly switched the moment we entered the building, and this is where you can find the creative souls of the city. No need to check out the program as there is always some exhibitions open. If you feel like being cultural some day, the Culture Centre can be found close to the BTS Stop National Stadium.

Spice it up

Deli deli delicious! Typical plate of mine these days. Chicken, seafood, vegetables, rice, curry, spices, soups, noodles, flavors. Pretty much sums up the typical thai dishes. I am feeling super spoiled as I never have to cook for myself. The prices for eating out is cheaper than cooking your own food which pretty much makes it an easy choice. Either I’m heading for some street food from the vendors, or the local restaurant is always ready to serve you. Ah, now I managed to make myself hungry…

City Break

Needed a little break from the city and headed to Bang Krachao! 60 – 90 min cab drive from Bangkok, a little boat trip, and suddenly you feel that you are far away from the big city. We rented way too small bikes and cycled around on the island. A little fun for the girls. The main attraction is however a park which is located not too far away from the pier. Bang Krachao is insanely green as you can see, even the water… I got myself a little jungle getaway so I’m happy!

Wat Saket

Weekends are for discoveries. This one is being spent in Bangkok, but hey! there is much to both see and do here. Wat Saket, or Golden Mount as you may also call it was todays destination. The Golden Mount is a temple, but for those who find these spots rather boring; Wat Saket can be recommended anyhow. To get all the way to the top you need to conquer 322 steps, and the way up is rather entertaining with beautiful scenery. When you get to the top you will find a little temple and a great view over Bangkok. Wisdom from today is btw that the monkeys that you can see over here are not something the «emoji» company came up with, but they are actually buddhist monkeys symboling «see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil». Think about that next time you are trying to express your shyness through the monkeys. I will however think that you are trying to send me some kind of Buddhist message.

Pancake o’clock

DSC07802 DSC07808 DSC07814

Craving something sweet? Found this really cute place just next to where I live, and they serve the nicest little pancakes. But watch out for these devils, they might seem small and harmless, but two bites and you have your whole lunch. Eat the whole thing and you have all your meals for the day covered. The café is located in Itsaraphap road and called Long Kin do ze er, but I think I’ll just go for the pancake place. So if a little bit of hipster, and some pancakes is what you are looking for; Kin do ze er is the right place for you.
