I’m serious when I say I changed my hostel to a homestay based on it’s proximity to the Unicorn Cafe. It’s this cafe that is covered in unicorns from head to toe and I must go there. So naturally, after I landed, I dropped my bag off and immediately walked over to the cafe. I think if I went there everyday I’d be a very happy person…. and also maybe get diabetes. I ordered rainbow waffles, a unicorn cupcake and a hot chocolate. Of course, it wasn’t all for me…I was sharing with my unicorn friends 😉
After a much needed photoshoot (by the way it’s really hard to sit and stare at a cupcake knowing you can’t eat it until your waffles come out) ‘we’ ate our weight in sugar to the smooth tunes Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. I definitely was thrown back to my pre-teen days of tea parties with stuffed animals.
Next, I headed over to China town. Typically this is where people stuff their face with all sorts of things they probably don’t know what they are. I tend to stay away from birds nest soup, shark fins, full duck and scorpions so it was a good thing I was full of cake and frosting. I did grab some bamboo and cabbage dumplings in case I got hungry later.
Bangkok is a unicorn in its’ on way. You kind of have to see it to believe it and beautiful to those who appreciate it’s uniqueness. Many people told me that I wouldn’t want more than two days in here and that they didn’t feel as safe at night here. Perhaps I’m just a city girl at heart because I thought it was great to be amongst all of the hustle and bustle and all the people made me feel safe. I was staying in what would be a business and entertainment district so there was a lot of everyday activity going on, and it was not touristy at all. In fact, I mainly passed by people coming back from work or school. Speaking of school, I went back to where I’m staying to take a dip in the pool and it saw a ton of high schoolers in uniform studying in the common areas. How fun would it have been to live in a fancy high rise with all of your friends at that age?!
