Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC)


Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC) is a place I feel is often overlooked by people visiting Bangkok. Most people come to Siam to shop and head straight for MBK or Siam and don't even notice BACC despite being right there in the center of all the most popular malls in Thailand its huge building often decorated with the latest eye catching art projects.


BACC is completely free to enter and there are many different exhibitions to see which are changed regularly, it's a nice quite place to take a break and enjoy some art, a stark contrast to the malls opposite which are always busy and loud and crazy, BACC is one of my favourite places to visit to get some peace away from the busy city outside.


As well as exhibitions they also have some in house artists selling artwork and handmade products and there are some artists which will draw your portrait for you to, there are also some really nice cafes where you can get some traditional and not so traditional Thai food, my favourite is an ice cream bar which serves ice cream that looks just like steak, fruits and even your pet dog, it's a really fun experience and definitely something a bit weird and different to check out.


Bangkok Art & Culture Centre is a good place to visit if you need a break from shopping and want to experience something a little bit different while you're in Thailand, a lot of the exhibitions are by Thai artists and reflect the current society, while I visited there was a great exhibition on LGBT in South-East Asia and photos that the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn had taken while on her travels. Exhibitions change every few months so there is always something new to see there and it's great for those on a budget to as it's completely free to enter and look around, so I definitely recommend you check it out if you ever come to Bangkok.

The Best Bubble Tea In Bangkok!!


The bubble tea craze is still going strong all over the world and although it's nothing new for those of us in Thailand who grew up with this treat it is still super popular with new bubble tea cafes opening everyday, you can't walk 2 minutes without seeing bubble tea somewhere! Bubble tea is one of my favourite treats so over the past couple years I have made the most of this trend and tried many, many different bubble teas from large chains to, independent shops and out of the hundreds I've tried I have to say that this is my absolute favourite.


Seoulcial Club has their own special bubble tea series called Fire Tiger and has grown from this one cafe in Siam Square to having multiple Fire Tiger stands and cafes in popular malls all over Bangkok. I witnessed this rise in popularity and remember seeing long lines of people outside the Siam store, some waiting hours to try their signature bubble tea, then seeing them open a second store just a few minutes away only for that to have lines just as long to! I thought it was crazy... until the moment I finally tried it and then I understood why it was so popular.


The Crown is my ultimate favourite of the Fire Tiger series and while it is pricey compared to some other bubble teas (the same price as a buffet lunch in some places!) it's definitely worth indulging in at least once in your life. I find that most milk teas don't have much of a tea flavour but you can definitely taste the rich tea flavour here and it's not overly sweet to which I like, it's also really creamy and the different types of boba and crunchy creme brulee topping bring an extra luxurious delicious element to it, definitely a must try if you're a bubble tea fan!


What's your favourite bubble tea?

GOT7 6th Anniversary Cafe Event in Bangkok, Thailand


For GOT7's 6th anniversary on January 16th a global celebration event was organised with cafes in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, America, Taiwan and Thailand all taking part and giving away special cup sleeves and gifts to celebrate. This is the first time an event has been organised for multiple countries so I had to go check it out and celebrate my fave Kpop boys 6th year as GOT7.



The Thailand event was hosted in Fat Bear Cafe, which hosts quite a few Kpop events in Bangkok, they also have some fun Kpop themed drinks on the menu like a Red Velvet milkshake, Heartshaker and Cherry Bomb soda which is what I chose being a fan of NCT 127. I also ordered myself a bingsu to cool me down after the long walk from the station to the cafe and it was soooo good!



The cafe was so beautifully decorated with photos and balloons and the TV screen played every song from debut until now, including the Japanese releases, JJ Project and JUS2 it was really special to see just how much GOT7 have grown from debut until now and just how much they have done in these past 6 years!


It was such a cute event and I love that there were several other cafes around the world all celebrating the occasion to and we all got the same cup sleeves as a little souvenir of our day celebrating together. I'm sure I'll be back there soon for another Kpop event!

Don't forget to enter my special GOT7 6th ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY!!

GOT7 JB Birthday Celebrations in Bangkok, Thailand



January 6th was GOT7's leader JB's birthday and to celebrate I attended 2 events. The first was a cafe and cupsleeve event at 12:30 Cafe which was small but very cute, I loved the photos that they chose to display of him and the cupsleeve was adorable and had cats on it, because we all know JB is a big cat lover always talking about affectionately about his 5 cat children and feeding and taking photos of cats wherever he goes.



I took along Mini Markson to celebrate with Bbeom, they were my models for the day. After enjoying a refreshing coffee, eating some yummy strawberry toast and taking lots of cute videos and photos I went to my second JB birthday event hosted by DefSoulTogether who's event I also attended last year.



This year they rented out a gallery and displayed so many cute and sexy photos of JB. I booked a ticket in advance because last years event was so popular I wanted to make sure I got the souvenirs which were a beautiful poster, postcards, cupsleeve and a lollipop with his face on it, which I ate as soon as I got home. It was a really great event and so many people came, they even brought a cake so we could sing happy birthday to him that evening and after closing there was an auction for all the photos that were on display, unfortunately I didn't get the one I wanted but it was still so much fun to be there and experience the excitement!


I really love going to these Kpop events in Thailand and seeing all the love everyone has for them, it's so heartwarming to see how much happiness they bring to everyone, even at the auction there was no bad feelings, everyone was so excited for each other and what they won there was just so much laughter and jay. I really can't wait for the next birthday event here because I know it's going to be so much fun!

Have you ever been to a K-Pop birthday event?

Exploring Iconsiam Bangkok's Best Mall!!


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! One of my goals for the year is to visit more new places, be it a cafe, city or even country or in this case a new mall. Iconsiam has been open for just over a year now and I have wanted to visit it for the longest time so I finally decided to take myself on a trip there to see what all the hype is about.


I decided to make a little video of my day there using 5 second clips, not sure if this is something I will do again but it was fun to try out something new. Overall though Iconsiam may be my favourite mall in Thailand, it made me feel very nostalgic being there and seeing the traditional Thai architecture and eating all the delicious foods (there's lots of choice for vegetarians to!) and then going shopping in the main mall with all the modern shops and interesting Thai souvenirs. The views of the city are absolutely stunning there and although I'm not the biggest fan of boats I did really enjoy the ride over there, I will definitely be back soon as it's a perfect place to take friends when they come visit me in Bangkok and give them a taste of the city I love so much.

What are your goals for the new year?
Love & Pad Thai
