801. Bangkok Part 7 | Chatuchak Market & My New Bag!

Louis Vuitton Alma BB Rose Pondichery Jacquard Strap
My new bag! I love it so much. I've wanted an Alma BB for a really long time, but I've always wanted the vernis version in red/cherry colour but never went through with buying it. A couple weeks ago when we went to Iconsiam, I wanted to check if the store had one. I wasn't fully convinced I would buy it still. They didn't have the vernis but they had this one. I tried it on and instantly fell in love! This is in epi leather with a jacquard strap which I now love a lot more than the vernis, plus it will be easier to maintain. I realize that most of my bags and other designer items were purchased vacations abroad. I like having a memory attached to them, plus most of the time it's less expensive than getting from Canada.

This is a really useful travel bag, even though it is a bit small. But definitely a lot more convenient for every day use than my Alma MM lol.

I really like eating out at these local spots. This noodle place is my favourite for soup noodles. All the food here is so cheap! They always range from $2-3 per dish, are so delicious, and quick to be served. Our area is really good for eating. The entire street behind us is lined with food carts and little restaurants. We are also very close to a night market called Bangrak Bazaar which we just stumbled upon a couple nights ago.

Hanging our laundry outside to dry. Unfortunately my boyfriend has lost about 6 of his underwear, thanks to a gust of wind. I wonder what new lives they are living now.

Chatuchak Market
On our first weekend, we visited Chatuchak Market. It's the largest market in Thailand (possibly all of Asia), with 27 sections and 15,000 stalls. They only open on weekends. They sell everything and anything you can possibly want. I am not sure how big of an area we covered that day but we mainly looked at the clothing section and pets section. Sadly, due to COVID, many shops were closed. But even with the closed stalls, there was still a lot to see.

Lastly, the pets section! From my understanding, each stall is occupied by a different breeder. I wanted to take one back so badly. I felt bad for the dogs being stuck there in such small spaces though, especially the Tibetan Mastiffs.

The Tibetan Mastiffs! They are HUGE! I am not sure if you can tell the size from this photo. I've only seen them in photos and videos before but never in person.
