Pizza and Drinks in Bangkok
On December 25, 2008, we woke up. Ivan and Jennifer exchanged Christmas gifts. I gave them bananas wrapped in wrapping paper. That was a hard feat! We checked out of Phranakorn Nornlen Hotel. Aaron was headed to Pattaya City today.
We took two taxicabs to the Admiral Premier Hotel. Everybody checked in. The hotel offers great accommodation with a pool on the roof. We brought all our luggage to the room.
Ivan, Jennifer, Neal, Rob and I headed up to the pool. Nom was sleeping in the room. There’s a great view of the city. It was great place to relax. We ordered room service. I had a good banana soup and also fried banana. We hung out at the pool for a few hours.
We went back to the room to shower and get ready. We walked to Soi Cowboy for dinner. We sat down at Old Dutch. Neal ate two bags of fried grasshoppers. Everybody else (including me) didn’t like the idea of eating grasshoppers. Ivan and Jennifer started off with spring rolls. Ivan had a fish soup. Jennifer ordered noodles with chicken. I got bananas and chips. The food tasted good here. We ended up having drinks at a bar nearby.
We woke up and had the free breakfast on December 26, 2008. We had another cool day at the pool. Ivan, Jennifer and I had sandwiches by the pool. We found out that Neal got sick – probably from the fried grasshoppers the previous night. We chilled in the room afterwards. We were planning to meet for dinner later on.
We hopped into a cab to a pizza place. We went inside Basilico. Ivan and Jennifer started with a tuna salad. Then, they shared an eggplant pizza. I got the banana pizza. It’s good but nothing is as good as my dad’s pizza! Ivan and Jennifer really enjoyed their meal. If you’re in Bangkok and you’re craving a pizza – definitely check out Basilico. Neal still wasn’t feeling good. He walked back to the hotel.
The rest of the group headed to a bar. The bar had a mechanical bull. Ivan rode it a couple of times.
I wanted to try it but I probably would have flown across the room. Afterwards, we headed to another bar for more drinks.
