once upon a time during my student years i went on a budget trip to sydney, australia with some of my friends from high school. it was the most memorable trip i’ve ever had because one, sydney was amazing and two, it was the first winter i’ve encountered in more than ten years. oh you bet, the first night we arrived it was SO cold i insisted we ditch all our plans and stay in our ‘unheated’ room. and that’s exactly what we did.
if you’ve been following the café trends of bangkok i’m sure you’ve heard of the new hot hangout spot ad lib by now. is it a hotel? a cafe? it so happens to be both! i actually had no clue till i was there. and if you are following my instagram, it’s no surprise that this place is my current obsession.
if you ever tried searching for the best steak house in bangkok, i’m sure you’ve come across new york steakhouse along with several others such as rib room & bar, prime, and so on. new york steakhouse is located on the second floor of jw marriott hotel (sukhumvit soi 2). at first i was quite hesitant because i wanted somewhere nice for my boyfriend’s birthday; you know with great food and excellent ambiance but this place was lacking in the skyline department. but we still decided to check it out cos of all the positive reviews it had received.
this is kinda like the second part of my trip to boracay, everything outside the beautiful resort i stayed in. so there’s no direct flight to boracay so you have to get on a different flight to kalibo or caticlan – the closest airport to the island. and then take the speedboat in.
