I was so busy being mad I forgot all about my extensive weekend update.
(I am still mad, by the way, but chilled down enough to provide you with the details of my very interesting weekend!)
Went to Plaza Athenee for lunch and very, very brief recce. The lunch was alright- liked the char siew paos and corn soup. (I love corn soup.)
Got stuck in a jam but eventually made it to MBK (they'd closed the flyover so we had to take a longer route). Did not find the solid-coloured flare skirts I wanted (I doubt they have it anyway as that's more a Platinum thing), but I did find a very pretty clutch for 199 Baht. (It's not oversize or envelope like I'd envisaged, but it's a lot more ladylike. And it was supposedly less cheap-looking than the denim quilted bag I'd originally wanted, for the same price.) With the help of Colour Lovers, the clutch is olive-coloured
Also did something I haven't done in years
- bought a cheap watch. It was 250 Baht (knocked off 40 baht) but the thing is, it doesn't have any gigantic logos or fake diamonds plastered all over the place. It's multi-strapped, dark brown leather with a simple white analog face that says 'QUARTZ' in tiny black capitals. So it actually doesn't look like it cost 250 Baht, which is excellent!
Got caught in a major jam coming home which left us all super tired and kind of grumpy. Went to Man-U Cafe for dinner (pizza!). Saw Bryan Robson- okay, so I don't really know him, but according to my mother he's really famous in football so yay us? He coaches the Thailand team now and was eating dinner with Uncle Joe and his brother, both of whom came over to say hi.
Today, Dad was working, so he dropped us off to church (sub for catechism- very nice sub, very horrible people I had to work with- quote, "Oh, I don't care if he's messed up, he's hot" unquote) and then Mum and I went to Central to eat at Greyhound. I bought a pair of shorts from Blue Corner. They're really soft! Again, I can't decide their colour. It was kind of khaki in the shop, then olive in the taxi, then when I put it in the laundry it looked... grey. Maybe I am going colour-blind...?
Took BTS to Emporium to buy bread and yoghurt. Got distracted and made an impulse buy
. I MUST STOP IMPULSE BUYS. This happened to be a pair of stone earrings- blue and red with a transparent bead in the middle. They cost about 200 Baht which to me was expensive but Mum said they were nice (for an impulse buy...).
Then took BTS again to Robinson's to top up Mum's card. Said no to impulse buy here!!!
The pink ballet flats were really nice but my toes were kind of screaming, "I'M GETTING SQUISHED!!!!" so thankfully I said no (c'mon, 600+ Baht for a pair of uncomfortable shoes??) but Mum bought a very pretty pair of white shoes from her favourite brand, FOF. (I'll admit they're comfy. But their designs are a little too Mum for me...)
Then home. So tired. Simmering off from last post- hopefully a bath will make it all better. I have to be all smiles for tomorrow... swimming...
