Tom Yam Fried Rice and Stir Fried Seafood Spaghetti, Tesco Lotus, Bangkok

After a whole afternoon being out moving in the hot sun, we went to
Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (The Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho, Wat Ratchapradit near the Golden Pig Statue, ChinatownWat Traimit and all the way to the Hua Lamphong subway, we decided to just take away food from Tesco Lotus near the hotel and stay in for dinner, rest and watch AFC on the tv. 

Tesco Lotus is connected to the BTS Skytrain, On Nut station and it’s very much a convenience for us to move around and get anything, since it’s nearby to the hotel. Street food is available outside Tesco Lotus, fast food options and food court available.

Being very tired, we take away tom yam fried rice @ THB50 (MYR5.00) from the food court. That’s the first stall we approached and couldn't be bothered checking out other stalls. :P Flavour is there, just too oily lo.
P1350119-1 From the same stall, we ordered Stir Fried Seafood Spaghetti @ THB60 (MYR6.00), and this is good! It’s tastes just nice with the flavour and slightly with a little gravy.
Then we got a 2 pieces of yummy hot and spicy chicken from KFC with 3 drummets set too… haha… I’ll blog about that with the other fast food I’ve had during this trip later… Then we got these jumbo sausages, 3 different flavours @ THB10 (MYR1.00) each.

We pretty much spent the evening eating and watching tv, until at one extent we got bored of Thai speaking Chef Wan (they changed the language halfway! but it was a repeated show anyways), we went to Tesco Lotus for grocery shopping…. haha… most of the things are cheap there ok! I bought 2 tubes of Darlie’s toothpaste at THB79 (MYR7.90), here they sell at MYR 13.00 to 14.00. I bought sanitary pads at THB75 (MYR7.50) and they are selling here at MYR 15.00! Double the price.. haha.. now i feel a bit lau ee d.

And like I earlier mentioned, beers and alcoholic drink is so cheap! Heineken is at THB35 (MYR3.50) and here selling at MYR7.50. This is retail price la.. don’t compare duty free…I got a couple of Bacardi cocktail bottles also at around THB35 to 38 (MYR3.50-3.80)each. Anyways, lesson learnt, buy bigger baggage for return next round.
