'Aroi' means delicious in Thai

May 9th - Bangkok
I finally leave Ko Samui (very early in the morning at 5am but the market place near the Resort was already bustling with business and probably halfway through their sales of the day!). Got into Bangkok at 7.30am and Gim picked me up at the airport with a huge bowl of sliced mangoes in the backseat for my breakfast! She's such and angel, knowing that I have to ease back my 'clean' tummy to normal food ... very sweet mango from her sister's mango orchard in Chonburi.

We head to Chonburi for the blessing of Big Sis's new home and after that, head to a Chinese restaurant in Chonburi town. Heaps of food - roast duck, 2 types of veges for yous truly, squid salad, 2 types of fish, deep-fried fish cakes, prawns cooked in coconut and various types of dim sum.

After lunch we headed back to Bangkok and did the 'makan angin' thing and drove through Bang Sean and Ang Si La, two great places for seafood. We contemplated staying back in Chonburi to have a seafood dinner in our favourite seafood place by the sea, Hang Sua (translation: Tiger's Tail) but we sacrificed it to make it back to have dinner with Lam in Bangkok.
Food at Hang Sua

For missing out on the best seafood in Thailand, Lam took us to a seafood restaurant near his place. It was a huge seafood restaurant situated on a lake. We had lala, squid salad, fish and tom yum goong. Food was ok, but nothing could compare to Hang Sua ... unfortunately, the namecard of this place is in Thai, so I didn't manage to translate it.

The view we missed out on ...
