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...

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.

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...

Need an excuse to splurge on new styles from Steve Madden? If simply getting weak in the knees for some of the new sandals isn't good enough, you can keep in mind that Free Shipping isn't going to stick around forever. Use SMFREESHIP while this deal lasts to take advantage of Free Shipping, no...

Anyone remotely familiar with Bangkok would know the Chatuchak Weekend Market so this post is less of an introduction and more of a recap of what we did. But for the uninitiated, the quick overview is that this is one of Thailand's largest weekend markets and you can find all sorts of fun...

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 you're ever in Bangkok, besides hitting up Platinum Mall which we've waxed lyrical about previously, be sure to...

Fashion Week is going on strong. While I never cover the runway shows (you can visit Style.com for that), I'm always secretly sneaking peeks at the collections (I'm not as anti-Fashion Week as I pretend to be). My favorite PR man (hi, Billy!) sent over this Fashion Week campaign from Steve...

Continuing on my Bangkok foodie quest, besides going on a pilgrimage to eat as many bowls of beef ball noodles as possible, we decided to check out Gaggan, a restaurant that boasts of progressive Indian cuisine served in a converted whitewashed colonial-style wooden house set in the heart of...

We are turning into Bangkok Fashion Geek this week as ShoeGeek and I hit up Bangkok over the long weekend. Mucho thanks to the lovely Nicola of the Four Seasons Bangkok who not only stuffed us full of food, offered us gorgeous rooms to stay in but also took us to all sorts of cool places....

Each has its merits, of course, but for the Geek pilgrimage to Bangkok we were invited by honorary Geek Nicola to stay at the Four Seasons Bangkok. We'd both been to the fab Thai restaurant in the lobby, Spice Market (yum, satays) without actually staying in the property -- for location, it's...
