I got excited when I saw the news ad on Central Ladphrao's reopening last weekend. The shopping mall is one of my favorite hang outs, it is like strolling in two shopping malls as both Union Mall and Central Ladphrao are in the same place. Central was closed for a couple of months due to renovation. This is one thing I like about Thailand by the way, they do renovations from time to time. Other malls have their own improvements as well but they never decided to stop operating unlike Central Ladphrao.
Anyway, I went there to check the new look and if there are something else new aside from the interior design. I got confused at first looking for a place to eat and I was really starving that time. After a few minutes of walking I found the area on the third floor. I stood for awhile and took the restaurant that was new to me. The name is Bangkok Streetfood. It is streetfood indoor then hehehe!. Anyway, it's buffet and it made me curious why the name is streetfood. Later, I found out that they serve soft noodles which the Thais call "kanom jeen". The kind of food is commonly seen in Bangkok sidewalks where people choose the desired soup along with a serve of soft noodles. The vegetable toppings are of variety which are unlimited and served in every table.
The restaurant however has many other kinds of noodles and some other kinds of food, plus veggies for salad and desserts including ice cream. The buffet doesn't have drinks with it however a cafe is part of the space so anyone can just buy any drinks one wishes in there. I had iced green tea during my meal. One thing about this buffet is affordability. Surprisingly it's just 89Baht which I really think is cheap thinking about the salads, desserts and other food available. The taste isn't that superb but with the price I think it's worth it. The meal cost me 159baht. I finished all my plates and I was really full.
After buffet I walked down and found out that it was Forever 21's opening. It was like oohh yesss! as I like the boutique which I regularly visit in Central World in Rachaprasong. Yes, a bit farther from my home. One thing I love about Forever21 is the accessories, earrings to speak. I like the designs they're so feminine and one can choose a variety of it from studs to dangling. I enjoyed the fashion shown they had, it was my first to see the kind in a boutique, like the fashion show was in the hall way with the theme hip-hop. They had professional fashion models but I think the highlight was the actors and actresses who walked in the ramp. It was all fun with music and the spectators actively cheering their idols. The show started late but it was a success, I thought it was such a good idea to come up with a fashion show during their opening. It's also great to note the Forever21 now comes nearer to where I live.
