This is Koh Samui with some scandalous looking rocks called Hin Tai and Hin Yai (Grandfather and Grandmother's Rocks)! The blue hues of the skies are so pretty, aren't they? (P.s it was scorching hot 😂☀️) #clozette
Here's a quick break from all my recent travel postings to share with you a little tip on how I have been keeping myself sufficiently nourished to upkeep with all my late nights, deadlines, work and stress on top of replenishing my 'qi' after my woman monthlies! .

Taking a quick break from sharing the rest of my Sukhothai travel photos to share a more recent photo taken at the Gala Premiere of The Phantom of The Opera at the Sands Theatre over at Marina Bay Sands (@marinabaysands) last Thursday night!
HUGE thanks to @baseasia for the tickets to the show and making arrangements for us to attend the after party at @1altitudesg! The masquerade theme for this gala night was awesome as well! 🎭
More importantly, say hi to my gorgeous plus one, @candybtob for that night - swipe RIGHT to view! 😘
The show was PHENOMENAL, by the way and we enjoyed it very much! The cast, costumes, stage setting, orchestra and everything was almost perfect and we couldn't stop humming the songs under our breath even after the show! Classics I tell you! 🎶
For your reference - ticket prices start from $75 (excluding booking fees) and are available from SISTIC! I highly recommend you to catch The Phantom of The Opera in Singapore before it ends its run on 8 June 2019 - and who knows when it will return again..(the last time was 2013, and then 2019). Don't wait anymore - #ThePhantomAwaits you! 🎭

Picture perfect setting in a beautiful countryside scene in one of the many homestays available at Ban Na Ton Chan! .
Don't you think it's so Instagram worthy? .
Btw, did you ever realize how picturesque the Thai countryside could be? I didn't either till my visit here! 😉💚🌲 .
See my previous post on some of the farm activities around this area if you are wondering what else you can do here! This is really a perfect example of community based tourism and the locals are wonderful!
Tip: Visit during their cooler months at the end of the year! .

This marks my first time riding an E Taek / farm tractor ride around the charming rural village of Ban Na Ton Chan in Sukthothai featuring some pitstops that we visited along the way including:
1. Seeing how chopsticks were made from bamboo!
2. Cooling off with some sliced lemons drizzled liberally with salt and honey (yums!) at the fruit orchard!
3. Trying our hand at playing with some innovative handmade toys like these wooden gymnastic dolls (created by Grandpa Wong to be used as a hand exercise doll for elders!) as well as toy slingshots!
P.s these are just some of the various immersion cultural activities available all around the village available for tourists! Swipe RIGHT to view them all!
Yes, there's also a homestay experience available as well and I'll be sharing that in my next post! 😊😊 #clozette #communitybasedtourism #offthebeatentrack
When you act fake cute with the Marian plum fruit and slushie and ask your friend to snap a photo of you with it = she went on a snapping frenzy. Couldn't choose so I decided to post ALL of them hahhahahahahhaha 😂
It was a really nice drink and fruit btw! Really liked it and couldn't bear to put it aside hence all the shots of me holding on to them even in a mass group photo (swipe RIGHT to view!) Yeah, I finished the smoothie in the van and hand carried the fruit home as a souvenir for my mom LOL #clozette
Behold one of the wonders of Sukhothai, Thailand with the Gigantic Buddha statue (15m high!) at Wat Si Chum! This is indeed a majestic sight that you shouldn't miss out on your trip here and one can't help but be awed by what you see with your eyes in front of you! Swipe RIGHT for more photos! :) #clozette
Early morning merit making at Wat Traphang Thong on the wooden bridge and handing out alms to the passing monks! I just wished I saved some of the child monks right at the end of the procession cos I gave them all out at the start! Swipe RIGHT for more photos! 😭🙏 .
Tip: you have to be there by 6am to catch the monks! #clozette #meritmaking #almsgiving
One of the MUST visit places in Sukhothai is the Sukhothai Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site - best explored via a cycling tour! .
But of course, for non-cyclists like me or those who prefer the shade, you can opt to take the hop-on hop-off tram OR rent the electric cars.
Sabrina Cheung and I did the latter and it was HILARIOUS. 😂😂
Personally, I think we are a joke, swipe RIGHT to watch our bonus videos - bth 😂😂😂😂 #clozette
A Hidden Grove, Handmade Pottery and Wares, Thai Hospitality, A Clay Painting Workshop to learn how to paint the famous motifs of Sukhothai (the Sukhothai Fish and Lotus Flowers) and my bad painting skills - swipe RIGHT to view them all! 😂🎨🖌️ #clozette
Managed to link up and get loadsa namecards (and gifts!) from the different operators and attractions at the B2B tabletop sessions while understanding more about the scope of their business! Yeps, there's really more to Thailand than just the usual shopping, eating and massages (which are AWESOME too in their own right!). Lol but honestly speaking, the majority of my time was spent doing the fun activities and workshops available like customizing my own straw bag and even trying my hand at some of the fun activities available from the various regions of Thailand!
Oh yes, and snacking too 😂
Wheeee! 😄 #clozette
This was my first time at Lhong 1919 (@lhong1919), an Instagram worthy attraction by the Chao Phraya River which I highly recommend for Instagram worthy photos not densely populated by too many people or tourists (yet)! .
I wasn't here for the photos though but instead, to attend the Amazing Thailand Products Presentation meant to showcase Thailand's emerging tourist destinations and the Tabletop Sales B2B Session after that organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) @tourismthailand!
For the latter, there wasn't really a need for me to participate as it's actually meant for buyers (i.e the travel agents in my group), but I just attended just for kicks to see how it works out and a sneak peek at how the industry works. It was definitely an interesting first time experience for me as well! Swipe RIGHT to view more!
Oh yes, we also had the opportunity to snap a group photo alongside with Mr Chattan Kunjara Na Ayudhya (Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Asia and South Pacific) and Mr Klissanda Ratanapruk (Executive Director, TAT's ASEAN department) later on that day!(: #clozette
P.s thanks @r.ainrr for my ootd photo 😂
My first thing on the itinerary on Day 2 was a site inspection and visit with the Thailand Authority of Tourism (@tatsingapore) to the newly opened ICONSIAM @iconsiam shopping mall (2018)! To be frank, the entire mall is great and everything, but what MOST impressed me and set it apart from the other awesome malls in Bangkok will be the integration of Sook Siam (@sooksiam) that spams the ENTIRE ground floor with food and souvenirs galore - almost as if you are in a night market but without being exposed to the elements of the weather!
Note that the vendors are handpicked from the different regions in Thailand and are rotated every few months so there will always be new things to try every single time you are here!
Suffice to say, I can totally forsee myself coming back here again to explore the entire place on my own as it was SO huge with EIGHT levels worth of shopping, food, cafes, entertainment and so much more!
Can't wait for the BTS to be up (apparently it's within this year, hopefully). Otherwise, it can be a little inconvenient to get there. Would suggest staying at a hotel nearby because you can easily spend 1-2 days just exploring this entire place!
Mark my words though, this is going to be the next happening place to stay at once everything is all up and running. But meanwhile, loads of construction going on outside the mall! #clozette
