Friday, May 14th
The gals last morning in Bangkok!! As they had to leave for the airport by noon, we decided to have a quick lunch at my favourite Anna's Cafe, which was round the corner from our Guesthouse. There are 5 branches all over Bangkok but my favourite one is still the one on Saladaeng.

Anna's serves my favourite dessert, the Toffee Banoffee pie. A review of the pie from
The Nation "Weekend"; "What's really praise worthy are Anna's Caf├ęs desserts. Just the right combination of banana, soft sticky brown chocolate syrup, and a melt in your mouth crust make the Toffee Banofee unforgettable"'s not just me!

After the gals left, I went to the Jim Thompson Factory outlet to look around and ended up buying some curtain material and other JT knick-knacks. There are a few Factory Outlets and realy good value for furnishings and out of season JT stuff. The guys at the store were really helpful but it would be better if you already had the measurements of of your windows, etc on hand

Met up with Col and friends for dinner. We ate a a place called Grill and Garden on Ekkamai Soi 2. The food was so-so and not very inspiring but it was in a nice garden setting with a band.

Dessert was at Buono Gelato, a place with very nice gelato, including durian falvour. I tried the almond chocolate and tiramisu and was not disappointed.
