the jatujak experience-bangkok 2007

jatujak (or chatuchak) weekend outdoor market boasts to be the world's largest.

now, whether this is true or not is immaterial. man, i just know it's huuuuuuge! and i'm just talking about the fashion/clothing and crafts sections!

walk, walk. stop. walk. stop. ask. bargain. will think about it. walk, walk, walk. stop. ask. bargain. will think about it. walk. stop. stop. (okay, lots of picture-taking in between) now, where was that shop where i saw those bling-bling rings? and that bag i saw? could it beeeee this row? no, this isn't it. maybeeee this row...

yeah, yeah. i sucked. big time. i ended up buying just a few tank tops - and they're not even for me!

i shoulda and i coulda, since i got (enough) moolah, but heck, i didn't go to bangkok with shopping in mind! *cough cough*

i went to bangkok to see my N, and to spend quality time with him!

N, who patiently held my hand and never complained as i led the way across the sea of clothes and accessories...

N, who snapped pictures of me here and there while i only took, like, two of his...and one is a back shot.

N, who was just forced to go to jatujak in the first place. like he had a choice, actually.

thank you baby.
can we do it again?
please? :P
