A Day In Bangkok

My view from the sky! Before heading back to Manila from Phuket, my friends and I decided to stay in Bangkok for a day and a half. Coming from the beach, all relaxed and rejuvenated, we were definitely ready to take on the metropolitan lifestyle once again.

And here we are! Touchdown, Bangkok! It’s been such a long time since I last vacationed in this city. I can barely remember how their airport looked like then.

Upon arriving at the airport, tourists were already greeted by lovely smiles and a short performance by these beautiful locals. Of course, instead of paying attention to their dance, I was immediately drawn to their costume! Gotta love gold!

Say hello to our transfer driver, thoughtfully arranged by Ticketport. Since we’re all girls with heavy baggage (literally, not figuratively), this was definitely helpful. Ticketport is such a breeze to talk to! Thank you for organizing our travel needs, Ticketport!

Can you guess which of these are mine? The Givenchy bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs laptop bag and that GIANT bright green luggage from Delsey are mine. Don’t be fooled. That giant luggage is actually the lightest luggage of all! It’s the reason why I love it so much! I’m sure you all already know how much I value baggage weight and space whenever I travel. This one is huge but it’s still much lighter than a medium-sized luggage. As if this bag isn’t winner enough, it screams “GREEEEN!!!! I’M HERE!!!!” so it’s so easy to spot my luggage on the conveyor belt too. To people like me who like to travel a lot, you should really consider buying bags in unique colors rather than the common ones. Not only will your bag be faster to spot, but there will also be less chances of other people grabbing your luggage by mistake. Don’t forget to attach an equally unique (and lightweight) bag tag too! Special thanks to Tonic for sending me my neon pink “C.C.” bag tag! :)

So, what do 3 style bloggers do with only 1 full day in Bangkok? No surprise here! We went straight to Siam Paragon to shop!

And take outfit shots too! Can’t take the fashion blogger out of the girl!

Since we’ll be walking around all day, heels were definitely not an option. Add to that, a heavy bag as well. Instead of bringing my huge Givenchy bag around the city, I opted to bring my trusty jelly bag from Furla.

Whenever I travel abroad, even if it’s to a tropical country like Thailand, I almost always bring a blazer with me. Sure, the corset and peplum skirt are already good enough for Thailand’s hot weather but I don’t want to freeze to death whenever I enter an air-conditioned establishment. Plus, you’ll never know when you’ll need to cover up and switch from casual to smart casual (minus the midriff showing of course LOL).

To my loyal readers who are expecting another travel post, I’m so sorry! I was really in vacation mode so I didn’t snap a lot of photos during our trip (as you can probably already tell). It’s been such a long time since Laureen, Kryz and I got together again like this so the less distractions, the better! But like the true foodie that I am, I managed to at least take photos of our yummy meal from Manna. :)

Soft shell crab

Shrimp curry

Prawn cakes

Beef

And of course, Thai milk tea! No trip to Thailand will ever be complete without getting a milk tea drink or two.

Again, I regret not taking more photos for you but I promise, the next trip I take, a travel post will definitely be in the works. Maybe a Gangnam Style video made with love in Thailand by the 3 of us will make up for it? Haha!

We definitely made the most out of are trip, didn’t we? 3 sillies in a foreign country…RIOT!

    Your gorgeous outfits are always a given, but what I didn’t expect (because I only usually scroll through beautiful pictures when it’s a fashion blog that I’m perusing)was to actually enjoy READING your posts! I’m a proud convert for almost 1.5 years now. ;)

    You sound like such a happy person and my bleary days always get that colorful pop once I start going down that colorful rabbit hole that is itscamilleco.com.

    Keep spreading the sunshine, Camille! And thanks for inspiring me to be a little bit more daring with my wardrobe. I’m a total minimalist/utilitarian/just-plain-simple-and-safe when it comes to my style, but your outfit posts keep making me excited and curious to be more experimental. You make it look so fun!

    Much love, :)

    I really really really really want that blazer from cotton on. It looks so comfy and yet semi-formal at the same time. I tried looking for it all over online and couldn’t find it. Is it possible that anyone has the link for it? :D

    Is it just me or did your photos here get a different PP treatment. Also noticed you’re now using lightbox for your photos. :3

    Your outfit’s colour peg is so BKK! Bright and colourful! Which reminds me, I still owe a friend a visit. She’s been inviting me to go to BKK for a while now. XD Where’d you guys stay?

    • itscamilleco

      I don’t use Lightbox though :) Probably because I used my Olympus here :)

      We stayed at Twin Towers care of Travel Port. It’s affordable too!

    Hello Ate Camille! I’m baaaaack! You know what po? When it comes to my list of inspirations when it comes to dressing up, you’re definitely number one on it. I’m a guy and I’ve been constantly looking for a male blogger who would really give me that extra push to take risks, but unfortunately, there’s no one yet that have lived up to my expectations. And here you are po, always making me stand corrected when it comes to color combinations and pattern mixing. I always think and thought that fuchsia and gray are two compatible colors. I mean, the wildness of the former color is somehow subdued by the neutrality of the latter one, don’t you think so? Yun lang po and I wish you more power because I know that you inspire a lot of people everyday! :))

    I love the floral print on your bustier and as soon as I saw the flats, I immediately knew they were Tory Burch. I wasn’t expecting you to pair your outfit with them, but it acts a nice twist. The food looks delicious! How do you take photographs of your food with such high quality and without getting stares from others?

    I hope you had fun on your trip!

    Your luggage is super duper neon!! Ewan ko nalang kung may magkamali pang dumampot nyan. :) Also love the “fragile” stickers on your luggages. Sino pala yung dalawa yung maleta?? Kryz blogged about that kasi but didn’t tell. I think it’s Laureen :) hee. By the way I REALLY LOVE YOUR OUTFIT (caps lock pa yan!). One more thing you gave me is the love for plum colors such as your top. Shades like that are sooooo nakakasosyal!!! And your furla bag again, haha overused!! :D Hee I have so much to say but I really want you to know everything. I hope it’s not so mahaba. :)
