By the fourth day of our stay in Bangkok, my body was already aching all over because of all the playing and walking in Jamboree Cyberpark, Funarium and Dusit Zoo. My arms were especially hurting because I had to carry Baby Zuri all the time (Next time, bring the stroller!) together with a bag full of her things.
I did not anticipate how difficult it would be to go around carrying a baby and a heavy bag all by myself for days (because Daddy Rupert had work on weekdays) while trying to take pictures of everything under the hot Bangkok weather. So on the fourth day, I decided to just stay in the hotel, relax by the pool and go to the nearby mall for a really quick shopping trip.
After swimming and taking a nap, I decided to go to The Emporium (Emporium Shopping Complex) for a little shopping and a short visit to Jamboree Cyberpark.
(Below) This is a 10-Baht ride (Php 14 ) found at Jamboree Cyberpark. Zuri saw another kid enjoying this ride and she wanted to try it, too. During the ride, Zuri suddenly felt the urge to poop (Do you notice that in the picture?) so we had to rush back to the hotel.
Zuri and I went back to The Emporium Shopping Complex after cleaning up.Since it is a luxury mall, most shops were too pricey for me so I decided to just spend time inside the Emporium Department Store.
I was lucky enough to see Avent training cups on sale. I bought one for THB 309 only (around Php 424), from an original price of THB 510. Then, we went to Boots (a store much like Watsons) and bought baby toothpaste, shower cream and soap at very reasonable prices.
After this, I decided to buy some take-out food and end the day early to conserve my energy. Our plan was to go to Chatuchak weekend market and the Grand Palace the next day and I knew I would need lots of energy for that.
