Our airasia flight is supposed to touch down in Bkk on sunday midnite and depart bkk on wednesday..and i just realised that that means i'm gonna miss one of the most famed landmarks there...the Chatuchak Market!!!!!
I'm not really a shopaholic..but which girl in their right frame of mind can resist RM 5 or 10 handbags or other cheap trinkets???? I'm pretty sane, so I definitely cant!!
But it does seem like that I wont have the chance to test my resistance level (albeit its close to non-existant stimes) and i'd hav to settle for lesser and smaller markets....:-[
Do look at this....
"Covering 70 rai (35 acres) of land with over 15,000 (!!!) stalls and more than 200,000 (the thought that i cant be among the 200,000 is most devastating!) visitors every Saturday and Sunday, Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok is the mother of all markets- and possibly one of the biggest and most famous markets in the world."
Pity me now yet??? Not the sister, brother, aunty, uncle, cousin...or any other kind...its the MOTHER of all markets.... haizz....really heartbroken dy..
I even went to the extent of checking out airasia one way ticket to bkk to get there one day earlier.. RM177.sthing.. worth it or not to fork out another 177 to get there one day earlier just for mother chatuchak?? My col Penny said definitely not worth it..the 177 can be spent eating or doin other things in bkk. Ok, perhaps tat makes sense... but its alwez gonna stick in the back of my mind that i'm gonna miss mother chatuchak....
And i can imagine this:-
Kenny/Nelly/Sandy (or any other random names) : Hey Denise, long time no see, what have u been up to?
Denise: Oh, I just came back from Bangkok (smugly).
KNS : Wow, sounds fab. U must've enjoyed urself tremendously and shopped til u dropped at the Chatuchak market.
Denise: umm....i din get to go..but but...i did go to other markets.....
KNS: WATTTTTT?????????? U went to Bangkok and u din go the MOTHER of all markets????
I'm asking u now...how to live with that???
