7D7N Bangkok 2015: Wang Lang Market

Image
Good thing I kept my notes and itinerary and everything in Evernote, so even though the trip was on May, I can still recall things haha. And luckily no one is keeping track so I can still talk about it although it's been almost a year ago.

As briefly mentioned in the earlier post, Hon and I went to Bangkok 1-2 days earlier than our other two friends. Hon prepared all of the itinerary for this trip (which is an extremely rare case because he is a man without planning but he has his reason), FC introduced him to use Evernote and it is like the best tool ever!!

We had the whole day to ourselves since one of our other friends would arrive later in the evening. He let me choose a location as our dating spot. On his notes, something along the line that said "famous among local for food...." immediately caught my attention, and I said "THIS ONE!! Let's go THERE!"

So, Wang Lang Market IT IS!

Note: Hon and I, we both share similar interest/taste in traveling - we ar…

UPDATE (June 2016)
1) Latest info regarding application of KTM i-Card (info here):
Starting on 2nd May 2016, application can only be made online at the KTMB website http://www.ktmb.com.my/. Application at any KTM's ticketing counter is no longer available, not even KL Sentral. The application fee is RM35 (inclusive of GST and delivery fee). The processing of your application and the card delivery is within 14 working days from the day you did your application and the card will be delivered to you based on the address you provided.
- You can now buy tickets online at the KTMB website too with the Student i-Card, with additional RM2 fee on top of it.

2) Starting early this year, KTM has added few (I not sure how many) Padang Besar - KL Sentral trips per day (that's the route I take note coz it concerns me LOL) but those trips take longer times to arrive - 5++ hours.

Dating on Two Wheels: 3D2N bike touring to Hatyai, Thailand

Side note: 1 month's effort of diet + exercise, spoiled in just one week of CNY break. Yay!! (NOT)
Hon and I, we are those 'random planning' kind of couple, so this bike touring thing happened kinda 'randomly'. 
Hon has been talking for ages about bike touring, ever since he got his Lerun mountain bike (MTB). That has been one of his dreams for many years and now that he has a bicycle (and THREE now lol), bike touring is some sort of his ultimate goal. I totally love it but too bad I don't have the time commitment at the moment.
I realized that we haven't been to trips recently and there's a window during the weekend before CNY break that I can squeeze a domestic trip, and I suggested it to Hon, and we kinda agreed either in Penang, Taiping or Ipoh for that weekend.
Then, there comes the randomness within a week before the actual event.
