Went for Natalie Glebova ‘s amazing birthday party in Pattaya last weekend. We started off with a white party at Cafe Del Mar with Natalie on the decks for the perfect sunset set. Most of you probably haven’t heard about Cafe Del Mar yet, but it’s a pool club located right on the beach in Jomtien. I love the venue at and in my opinion it’s the best place to go out in Pattaya area. Great vibes, great drinks and the venue is nice and open!

The second day we sailed away into the sunset with the perfect catamaran, tunes and crew for the occasion…

Probably the best birthday Weekend I’ve ever joined. Such an awesome crowd!

Tempted to rent a catamaran in Pattaya? You can rent the same one or a smaller one from Ocean Marina Yacht Club.

Even if you’re last-minute, you’ll find a Halloween party in Bangkok at every corner. Bars and restaurants go all out, which is quite amazing. Open the event page on Facebook and you can see pretty much any of the top ones in Bangkok, as most venues advertise weeks in advance. Since I ‘forgot’ to take a picture of this years costume, I’ve added some of the past years costumes.

Wonder Woman, Dia de los Muertos inspired chick and Tomb Raider. This year… I was the pink bear from Epic Games – Fortnite (Cuddle Team Leader skin for those of you that plays). I’m a bit bummed I didn’t get the mast as well, as I now see that it was an option to order it. I will include the link for you below if you are interested to get one.

2014 (Koi and Ku De Ta)

We were super last-minute that year and ended up going to Petchaburi 18 to the costume rental shop. Awesome selections!

2015 (Casa Azul, Live RCA, Mixx)  Dia De los Muertos a few years back at Casa Azul! 2017 (Ce La Vie)

Military, Woman Joker, Skelton and me as Tom Raider… of course we all had to leave our guns etc. downstairs so didn’t get any full costume pix.

Frank Castle and Lara Croft teams up!

Make-up on fleek for these middle girls!

2018 (Casa Azul, Atomic)

That’s the costume. Pic coming soon! Link here.

Of all the places I’ve lived or visited during Halloween, Bangkok definitely is on the top when it comes to selection of party venue. It doesn’t matter what day of the week it is, people are going all out in one way or another costumes or not! This year was no exception. We started out with beers and tacos at Casa Azul, a Mexican restaurant located in Soi Ari before going to Atomic in Thonglor. Atomic was super fun with loads of games like beer pong and some other games which I had too many beers to remember what was called. Do check it out if you’re into games.

I had so much fun doing this collaboration with MyUS!

MyUS is a shipping company located in The US with the main goal of offering affordable and fast shipping to people in Thailand and across the globe. The challenge was to pick anything under or equal to 100$. I’m so amazed at how many things you can actually get at Amazon for this amount. I know for a fact that 3 of these items costs more than this as these are products I usually buy… so getting 10 items extra was insane.

The best part was the things that I can’t get my hands on in Thailand which is probably the main reason why I will keep using this company. Like the Aveeno make-up wipes. I’ve never found anything better and the only time I can get them is when my sister visits or I go to the state myself which means… not too often.

You might have noticed that many US stores don’t offer shipping to Thailand so this is where MyUs comes in (ehm… Amazon). They offer you to use their address in the US where they repackage your goods and send them to you in Thailand. You can send as many packages as you want, though it is recommended that you wait and bundle them to send them all at once to save costs.

Shipping price is based on package weight starting at just $13.99 to Thailand!

If you do find this interesting or is looking for a similar service yourself you can get a free trial here.

Happy shopping

Went to see Kygo this week and I was blown away with his performance. Perfect choice of tunes and some amazing vocal and instrumental segments.

Fantastic Crew!

So glad to finally get to see him live. I feel lame for being a Norwegian and this being my first time, but how awesome to get to see him live in Thailand. Good organising from Teddy Time. Excited to see who they bring next!

Now I am ready for the next one! Wonderfruit!

Yes I know guys…. I disappeared after Chiang Mai. I had to recover from all the coffees, sweets and delicious foods.

But first, check out this awesome café we stumbled upon when we were in Chiang mai called Woo Café & Art Gallery. Definitely one of the most Instagrammable coffee shops I’ve ever been to.  

Scroll down to see all the awesome pictures!

The details

Annoyingly many places to snap a photo!

SMILE!

The iced coffee comes in LARGE glasses. You’ll see what I mean here.

The coffee was good and as you can see, the presentation was great! I LOVED that the coffee was served with a tiny cookie bite. We had already eaten lunch at the golf club before arriving so I can’t tell you if the food is on par with the coffee.  What I can say is that it looked amazing and I deeply regret the fact that I came on a full stomach. Also, don’t forget to go upstairs and check out the art gallery. I fell in love with several of the pieces, and especially the one of two gigantic blue eyes gazing at me. You’ll know which one I’m talking about… unless it’s snatched already!

Thailand has a lot to offer in terms of scenery and culture and saying that you have a favourite place here might sound a bit rushed. But, there’s something special about Krabi that in, when people ask me for my favourite beach destination, Krabi is the first place that comes to mind.

Island hopping in Krabi. This is at Koh Tup.

It might not be unspoiled by tourists or even a hidden gem where it requires the help of locals to get to. If you do want that, you should go to Koh Krandan and the islands around Trang. The sunsets there are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.

#Leapkiss at Koh Poda also known as Poda Island.

Krabi is actually quite developed and the ease of travelling there is a part of what makes it so attractive. You can literally to go there with 5 minutes of planning. Thank you internet! There are plenty of nice areas to stay depending on what you like to do, which makes it a place suitable for ANYONE.

//So happy we didn’t listen to the weather forecast. It was supposed to be raining 24/7… should have worn that sunscreen…//

There’s Ao Nang which is the “mainland” and even if it’s not the center as in Krabi town, it is the center in terms of transportation. You can get anywhere from here. This is also where the main pier to go to Railay beach is located.

For me, Ao Nang is probably not a place I would recommend to stay, but a nice place to start if you are travelling with family or you just want to relax on the beach with good restaurants, bars and nightlife.

//This year I went there with my family. It was good times.//

//My little sister Silje… <3//

There are plenty of daytime activities in Krabi such as The Emerald pool, island hopping, climbing, temple exploring, night markets, beaches- you can easily rent a bike anywhere to explore by yourself. Or you can rent a private (or with groups) speedboat/long tail boat.

//Typical way to get around in the islands in Thailand. Long-tail boats…//

//Perfect place to visit for couples<3//

//That climbing scenery… don’t worry. This is just the warm-up. But hello, would you like to climb on Railay beach? Check out the scenery.//

My go-to place in Krabi will always be Railay beach. I cannot go there without visiting this place. And if I didn’t know better, I would have thought Railay was an island. That’s definitely the vibe it gives you. Reggae music, endless smiles, peacefulness and perfect sandy beaches. Strolling along the beach and eating delicious seafood. And the best of all, the rock climbing opportunities. I love bumping into travelling souls along the climbing areas. Experienced climbers and first-timers alike, they all love it.

//The guides are so chilled and fun- not on the safety side though. You’ll be happy whatever company you go with. Krabi people are a good bunch of people <3//

<3

So- if you are living in Thailand or is planning to come here, do go check out this gem of a place. The accommodation is great and affordable as well!
