Hat Yai (22nd - 25th June 2011) - Part II

Okay, all my pictures are in a big mess & not in order. I don't know why the hell i became sucha messy person now!!!

Upon arrival, uncle brought us to this place for lunch where i had the best Tom Yum Kung in the world. And ZY's favourite fish...

Photobucket

It's very crispy & i love the fruits salad as toppings! And...

Raeann ate 4 bowls of white rice lor!!!!

Becos we had heavy lunch in the late noon, we couldn't bring ourselves to go for dinner with them at 7pm. So we went shopping at Greenway & Perk Thai first! Then later the night, the 2 kids were passed to us & we brought them for our late dinner cum supper here...

My birthday was spent here! Happy Birthday to me, once again~

Photobucket

Got liveband somemore! That's where i heard of the song "Bao Bao"!

Photobucket

Raeann jitao buay paiseh & went up to perform with them. =.=

We tipped the singers & waiter each 100 baht and they literally looked after Raeann for us. Bring her up to play all the instruments, carry her around & etc. You know, she's really very out-going & not shy de!

Life's much much simpler & easier in Hat Yai, people there are easily contented, unlike us. Becos of the stress we faced everyday, we just can't be contented with our own life cos Singaporeans are always 'chionging chionging & chionging'.

Their monthly salary is about 6000 baht (about S$240), so when you tip them 100 baht (S$4), they will treat u like a king/queen liao. To us, S$4 is nothing, it's like a plate of economic vege rice but to them, it's about their 2 hours salary lor! One satisfied & nice meal for 4-5 paxs cost average about S$30. I guess their MOST expensive meals in a high class restuarants with all the good & expensive dishes ordered costed like S$200+ only. Yes, that's their cost of living, low & simple. ZY said he wanted to migrate there liao. HAHAHA

Went to Lotus Shopping Mall on the 2nd day & ZY saw durians bigger than Raeann's head. LOL

Photobucket

3rd day at praying place! A very ulu kampong area & this is their ice cream at 10 baht! Si bei huge!

Photobucket

The very cheap facial. It's a high class place located at only (several) shopping malls, not those lousy type. ZY said he did his for only 700 baht (S$28) & it cost around S$200+ here in SG. He kept asking if i wanna do together anot, i was quite tempted until someone said, "her skin so nice, she do for what!" then i decided not to do. Okay, the trick to beautiful skin is, not doing any facial. Hahaha

Photobucket

Maple syrup mini waffle! Quite yummy!

Photobucket

Floating market!!!

Photobucket

All sort of food sold at the floating market! Quite nice wan lor!

Photobucket

This cup is FOC when u purchase drinks at don't know 20 or 25 baht. ZY brought back 2!

Photobucket

Mum bought back this 'cheng teng' on the 3rd night, full of ingredients!

Photobucket

Checking out soon...

Photobucket

Breakfast at some dim sum place! This is how close they are.

ZY was telling me he must have owed Raeann alot of debts in his last life! LOL! Seriously, he's extremely tolerance towards her de! He said only Raeann's able to 'ke' him. LOL

At the airport!

Of cos, without uncle & Qing there, it won't be this fun at all. We don't have to walk far, carry big & small bags of our shopping loots becos Qing ferried us around. She helped us to bargain even though things there are already very cheap. ZY bought 10 berms at only 80 baht (S$3) per piece! Cheap not? Looks like he's already planning when to go again liao, most probably in Dec? XS also jio-ed me to go in Dec BUT don't think i can make it cos nobody looks after baby? Or maybe my aunt can! Heehee

Qing said, next time if i wanna go BKK, give her a call becos being a local there, she can get 500 baht per night hotel for us, she can buy things at their local cheap rates. If you should know, BKK is a place to 'chop' foreigners like us! If she were to go with us, she said she can buy things even cheaper than HDY. She was at BKK for a month last month. It's sucha blessing to know her lah!
