The Wax Museum

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Here is another place that I was so eager to step into - the most famous wax museum in the world! Some might wonder what's so spectacular about it, well I'd say so too if I have not stepped into Madame Tussauds World. You can touch, hug and kiss the celebrity figures, put on the props and take countless pictures with them! Never thought I'd get so giddy over wax figures, even from those I neither know nor care about!

The museum was divided into ten exhibit rooms, each with a different real-life theme.

Princess Diana! The woman my baby sister was named after.

Send this picture through Whatsapp to my mom, saying that I met this idol of hers & she totally freaked out.

This man here, I used to do a lot of research on him during my O level arts but it was only on this day that I actually found out how he looks like -.- He is Pablo Picasso by the way.

Siam Ocean Park

We woke up pretty early on our third day here in Bangkok. Finally a day not spend on shopping, so sexcited!

They say never trust a person who smiles before 9am.(Not that I agree with this, plus I do smile before 9am everyday)  Hey when you're on a holiday you can wake up at 6am & smile the moment you opened your eyes, agree? Here's me smiling at 8 in the morning (Monday morning some more!) ready to start the day.

Throughout my entire four days, except for the first, everything I donned were items I bought here!

In case you have yet to see it on my Instagram, here are my shopping hauls from Platinum Mall alone. Not included in the picture are stuff I got from Chatuchak, MBK, Pratunam Market and the second round of shopping in Platinum on my fourth day.

The shopaholic monster in me obviously got unleashed! Silly how I thought I could resist the temptation of splurging after months of resisting myself before this trip but I was wrong, so wrong! As I am typing this, next to me lies my luggage filled with my crazy buys in it - waiting for me to get a space to keep them.

At the moment I have 108 hanged clothes in my wardrobe lol

First stop, the Siam Ocean World.

Initially I wasn't too keen about this place but it received rave reviews from its visitors online so I supposed it was worth the price and time. & I'm glad I was right!

I also bought tickets for the glass-bottom boat. We put on the life jacket, hopped onto the boat and basically went around the aquarium where the sharks were placed at. Along with some other creatures which I forgot what, I only remember the sharks! We got to get close with them, such an unforgettable experience!

We also watched a 4D show which was totally two thumbs up! In total we spend almost three hours there, so here's an advice if you're planning to come here : Make sure you have an empty memory card cos I bet you'll take many pictures here.


Hmm I think I shall save the next part of the post for some other day. Another place that I like a lot!
