6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Air Ticket+Hotel) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (机票+酒店)

In the beginning year of 2013, we had travelled to Chiang Mai. It was a happy and unforgettable journey which gave us uncountable surprises. 真是一个美好的2013啊!在这2013的年头,我们到了清迈旅行。又是一个令人超兴奋,超开心的旅程,途中太多惊喜,是我们不想忘掉的回忆,所以让我们在这儿纪录旅程的点点滴滴吧。   This trip was last minute planned and ticket was last minute booked. Due to money constrain, we choose Chiang Mai as our honey moon trip. At first, I do not really exciting with this place as I thought it is the same as Hatyai. Since there was no other option, I gave this place a try and start our 6 days 5 nights trip. 这次的旅程是临时的计划,起初Camus建议到清迈玩时,我就想,去不去也可以,反正应该就像合艾那样的地方,泰国嘛,去过了啦。但由于想省些钱,去个较便宜的地方,所以就去看看咯。我们在农历新年前购买机票,订下酒店,再马虎的计划行程。就这样,开始了我们6天5夜的清迈之旅。   Due to our busy life in city, daily working pressure, previous rushing travel experience, we decided to travel with peace and most importantly, relax to the fullest at this trip. We do not plan too detail for the trip and just briefly list down places that wish to visit. Details itinerary will be planned on each travelling day, according to our mood on that day. 我们想在这次的旅程过着废人的生活,每天就只顾着好吃懒做。旅游宗旨是吃喝玩乐睡和大(排泄)!要知道,想过废人的生活并不容易。每天为生活而奔波,难得周末也为这为那而忙得透不过气,就连之前的旅程也是赶来赶去来玩的,所以,这次的废人旅程,对我们是多么的重要,我们希望能在这6天内,废得够!废得爽!废得乐!就这样,行程也不多计划,就随着当时地心情来玩,随着当时地感觉来走。   Before start our story, we would like to summarize those interested places that we went. Detail / zoom in map will be shown in each single post later. 以下地图大约说明我们所到的地方,更详细的地图会分享在之后的文章。 Places we went in chiang Mai Air Ticket Before purchase for air ticket, we compared both Air Asia and Thai Airway. Since both tickets gave not much different in price, we decided to purchase Thai Airway. With previous experience to fly with Air Asia, we are quite fare up with their service. Some time delay, some time cancelled, many thing are count by itemize billing, such as choosing a seat, baggage, meal and others have to buy separately. Thai Airway saves us from all these troubles. We spent RM2104 to purchase for tickets, although it was not as cheap as what we expected, but the service, departure time, arrival time and food did not disappoint us. 机票 好,就从机票开始吧。在买机票之前,我们考虑Air Asia和Thai Airway。由于Air Asia只便宜Thai Airway一点点,所以我们直接购买Thai Airway,这也可以省掉很多麻烦,不必而外买行李,而外买食物,而外这,而外那。也不必担心班机延迟,又可以同样的价钱购买早班机飞,迟班机回的选择。那机票呢,共用了我们RM2104的费用。说便宜并不是,但还是照就买了。Thai Airway的服务令我们满意,食物好吃,准时,座位等等,都没让我们失望。   Hotel Chiang Mai's hotels are too many for you to choose. We took few days to select the one that suit us. At the end, we chosen two different hotels that we liked. One is far from city, but very relaxing place, another one is in city, a thai style home stay. 酒店 再来,就说说酒店吧。我们用了两三天时间来做选择,最后决定订两间不同的酒店,一间是比较悠闲但离市区较远的,希望可以放松心情,享受郊外大自然的生活。另一间则是在市区内但也有泰国古木风味的,以方便在市区及附近逛逛。 First Hotel: 酒店一: BaanNamPing Riverside Village 59/1-4 Mu 7, Chonlapratarn Road, Tambol Koumung, Saraphi, Chiang Mai 50140, THAILAND Tel : 0066 (0)53 439 040, FAX 0066 (0)53 429 620 http://www.baannamping.com/home_en.htm Location of Baannamping hotel We booked the room through their website, superior room was 2900Baht per night, after discount was 2030Baht. They also free upgrade our room to deluxe room. We stayed there for 3 nights. Overall we are satisfied with the room, food and environment, but if they can clean off the dust around windows will be perfect! Breakfast is included in room rate, they serve lunch and dinner too, but slightly expensive. The only problem is distance, it took about half an hour from hotel to city. They provide motor bike rental service at 300Baht per day (not include petrol) as well as taxi service from hotel to city daily (also return to hotel) at 100Baht per trip. 我们是通过他们的网站订购的,Superior Room每晚2900Baht,30%折扣后剩2030Baht,又给我们免费升级房间去Deluxe Room。我们共住了三晚。房间是令人满意的,但当打开窗帘时,可见些灰尘。食物很好吃,但午餐及晚餐的价钱比较贵,早餐是包含在房价里的,很丰富,很好吃。周围环境也令我们非常满意。其中一个问题是离市区较远,大约半小时的车程。但他们也有提供租电单车服务,每天300Bath,不包括油费。 Second Hotel: 酒店二:Baan Hanibah 6 Moonmuang Rd. Soi 8 A.Muang Chiangmai 50200 Thailand Phone & Fax. : 6653 - 287 524   E -mail : baanhanibah@gmail.com We contact this hotel through email. Double bed room was 1450Baht per night. We stayed for two nights here. Environment at here is good, but be prepared to get disturb from big mosquito and noise from other traveler, as the room does not have sound prove. Walking to ThaPae Gata is just about 10-15 minutes. 这间是直接发邮件至他们的邮址来订的。双人房间一晚1450Baht,共住两晚。环境不错,徒步到ThaPae Gate大约10至15分钟。由于房间没有隔音,所以一切动作必须轻盈缓慢,以免吵到其他住客。一个难顶的问题是蚊子又多又大,坐在庭院享用早餐并不是好滋味。房里没有热水器供应,必须与其他房客共用大厅的热水器。 Summarize of maps

 

Ke Ren Lai Restaurant | Gurney, Penang

After 3 years, I am now back to Japan again. This time will stay here for only 3 weeks, it is good for me to enjoy the food here. I miss the food in Japan, from sandwich to bread to cake to dessert to ramen to bento to coffee to izakaya food to sashimi to ... many more. Opsss...this post is not about Japanese food yet. Let's back to my last dinner before I came to Japan.

 

Ki no me (kinome) Japanese Restaurant | The One, Penang

Ki no me, a Japanese Restaurant located at The One, Bayan Lepas. Before went there, comments from others about this restaurant are positive. Good food with good price, but need to wait for nearly one hour before the food was serve. When I blog for this restaurant, I google for Ki no me, and I found this: 木の芽, the young leaves of the sansho tree (Japanese pepper). I think the restaurant named after this leaf as I observed the wall is decorated with many greeny leaves. I believed they are ki no me. Today, we decided to give it a try, we were lucky as we get a parking space right in front of the restaurant and not crowded at the time we arrived there.

Chadango_2Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan.

On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

8 sticks of Cha Dango in a pack

I bought a pack of cha dango when I visited to Kyoto, it came with 8 sticks in a pack which cost 630yen (about RM24). It was nicely wrap and I think the price is expensive due to the beautiful packing. This is not the first time I ate Cha Dango, the same brand of Cha Dango given by Japanese Colleague from Kyoto was really impressed me. The "Q-ness" texture and green tea taste of the dango was fantastic. I like it!
