The reason why I love to travel to Hat Yai, Thailand

If you have been following my blog for the past years, this is certainly not my maiden visit to Hat Yai. Come to think of it, I do visit this city every year,  which has been a favorite place for Malaysian to shop and indulging authentic local food at an affordable price.

1. SHOPPING 
My shopping spree is fully sponsored by HB. This happy girl shops from afternoon till the sky turns dark. I hop from one shopping mall to another. Then, wandering along the busy street with local vendors selling clothes, toys and local street food. Last but not least grab as many snacks as possible from 7-Eleven. I would say Thailand has one of the best 7-Eleven in the world.Haha

These are my favorite. Pork buns from 7-Eleven, priced at THB12.

Pocky - I grabbed assorted flavors such as milk, banana, chocolate and green tea for THB12 to RHB20 (depending the size) . Shopping at 7-11 makes me happy too.

I spent my own sweet time in there and came out from the convenient store with THB500 poorer. Nah, it's ok in return for some discount coupons. The reason to shop more! Haha

2. Yummy FOOD!
Although there are numerous vendors selling this common local dessert but there is only one stall I like the most (at the pasar by a Thai lady) - priced at THB50. The mango sticky rice included the coconut milk and fried mung bean to add extra texture to the rice. Yummy!

I had something different this time. While we searching a place to settle for our breakfast, we stumbled across a simple yet humble local shop selling delicious pork noodles (walking distance from Lee Garden Plaza), priced at THB40. You can also add some pork crackling (THB15) into the bowl of comforting soup noodles.

3. HANDMADE items and souvenir - During the weekend, you can find a flea market at Lee Garden Plaza. I love visiting flea market especially for their cute and inexpensive handmade gifts.

- They can customize your souvenir, such as putting your name for FREE. Initially HB wanted my name on it, but since this a gift from him might as well have his name on it as a remembrance. #doingsomethingcute.

In case you are wondering what is that...It's an OWL!  Spotted my new pair of rubber shoes? Yup, gotten 2 similar pairs but different color for THB16 each. Also some Zebra stainless steel kitchenware for my mom and myself. That Chinese wok is for my mom.

This was a pair of comfy but costly shoes. Also quite hard to maintain it especially during rainy days. It got worn out so fast when it gets in contact with water. Say bye bye to my old shoes.

UPDATES FROM THE LONG SILENCE - SHOP FOR SCHOOL SHOES AND SCHOOL UNIFORM

Back from the long silence for there are so many things popped up within the week. Unbearable pain, emotionally intense, sleepless nights which better known as 'W'- feeling to me..Hahah. *picked up a wilted flower in front of my house** I still see beauty in it.

It also reminds me to slow down myself because life is moving at such a fast space that it seems to pass us by before we look upon and enjoy it.

Hmmm..set that aside because I have more painstaking task to complete - Hunting for school shoes.

Sounds easy but to get the smallest size to fit the little feet who soon will be stepping into primary one is not an easy job. The moment we entered the shoes shop, the first thing we asked the salesperson is, do you have the smallest size of school shoes for my 'toddler'. 'Yes we do!' Upon slips on the shoe...that is where the nightmare strike. I can easily fill the gap of the shoe with my finger.

'Ma'am, ini paling kecil. Lagi kecil tak boleh masuk, itu, for baby.' **me sweating*

Leaving me with no choice I have to grab them together with a pair of thick socks to fill up the gap as much. The next day I went to another shopping mall to try my luck, in the hope to get another pair of shoes that will perfectly fit her little feet. Same outcome, even big E can easily insert two of her fingers between the gap. We gave up so the only option is to get her thicker socks.

And then we proceed to get her school uniform. I keep thinking will the smallest size of pinafore  turn out to be like a maxi dress.Thank goodness they have the right size just for her. I only have to send to the tailor to mend the belt. That's it. Mission completed.

The tiny little hands....I do concern about her when she steps into the big school. But I do have faith in her that she will pull over it despite she has always been very careless and people hardly observe her visibility due to her size.

I asked her to eat more...jump more but she said her mouth is small - can only nibble. **rolling eyes**
