We were so stuffed that on more than one occasion, we approached the wrong table, and yes we prefer to think of it as being a self induced food coma as opposed to being inebriated from free flow alcohol which included all sorts of bellinis (I was told that the pineapple bellini will forever...

Like all fruit that's tasty (cough, lychees, cough), mangoes are considered to be super "heaty" according to traditional Chinese health wisdom, but when in Bangkok, do as Bangkokians do -- and that means consume luscious, meaty mangos. Our first stop after landing Bangkok was Siam Square, but...

It also provided us an excuse to tell our respective housemates why we wanted to bring a large suitcase to Bangkok for a 48 hour trip. I can unabashedly say that ShoeGeek and I both fell in love with the train market. It's an awesome place for antiques and you can easily find vintage cameras...

Since we prefer to believe that Pat gets his amazing complexion not due to genetics but due to products, we stocked up aplenty when we were in Bangkok. Boots is available just as readily as Starbucks is in Hong Kong, that is, around every corner on every street in Bangkok.

If you're a girl of average Asian size and you're in Bangkok to shop unabashedly for yourself, there is only one place to absolutely must go, and that is Platinum Fashion Mall. FashionGeek and I went there twice. In a 48-hour trip. What can I say? It was near the Four Seasons...

As we resume our regularly scheduled programming, do let us know if there's anything you'd like to see more of! So to start with, I'm going to be doing a series of travel and food posts seeing as I pretty much spent my entire vacation stuffing my face both in Hong Kong and in Bangkok. If...
