I tried their Egg Noodle Soup of which the noodle was Q enough but the soup was sweetish though flavourful enough.





My friend's bowl of Buckwheat Noodle Soup. He like the noodle but not the sweet soup.



Condiments for Noodle - As if it was not sweet enough already, they have more sugar for you.

Time for desserts. Lets try this Beijinho which I found it pretty normal, not surprize here.



Macarons and Thai Dessert - As for the Macarons, the texture and flavour were just not what I had expected after eating the much nicer version at Straits Cafe back in Singapore.



This Thai Dessert had a rubbery texture as echoed by my friend.



Sago in Red Wine Sauce - I like red wine but this one had that "siap siap" taste which I did not like. Not the smooth red wine aftertaste which I much preferred.

Café Liégeois was a Coffee flavoured cream dessert.



Tiramisu



Chocolate Ice Cream - Someone challenged me to break her record of the most number of scoops of ice cream eaten.

Berry Sherbet - Since the buffet does not included drinks, not even plain water, this became my thirst quencher. Had about 6-7 scoops of it not because of the bet to see who ate the most scoops of ice creams but it had a nice berry flavour and none too sweet.







And how much does this buffet cost? Only S$17 if you factored in the exchange rate by the bank.

Lunch's over and someone suggested visiting the newly opened mega mall near Suvarnabhumi Airport so we proceeded to BTS Udom Suk to wait for the free shuttle bus. Anyway, we were joking that Udom Suk sounded like Udon Soup if you can't remembered the correct name. OK, back to topic, we waited and waited but no shuttle bus came. Not wanting to stand by the road and inhale the exhaust from all the vehicles, the five of us squeezed into one taxi.

Mega Bangna is a new shopping mall near Suvarnabhumi Airport and and is billed as the largest low-rise shopping mall (two floors only) in Southeast Asia. They have 800 shops and parking for 8,000 vehicles. The anchor stores include Robinson, Big C Extra, HomePro, Mega Cineplex and IKEA. Mega Cineplex includes 15 digital cinemas, 24 bowling lanes, 28 karaoke rooms & 1,000 sq.m ice skate rink.



Mega Bangna
39 Moo 6 Bangna-Trad Rd., Km.8
Bang Na, Bangkok 10540, Thailand

A giant statue sat at the entrance to the shopping centre.





It was raining when we got there.

If there's only time for one buffet in Bangkok, which would you go for? Lord Jim or the Westin Three Buffets?

Go for the 3 in 1 buffet if you like the lamb cutlet, fresh sashimi and Teppanyaki plus desserts.

Lord Jim if you like the foie gras, roasts and desserts.

The 3 restaurants in 1 has a lot of varieties than I can hope to try out. Need to go a few times just to sample them.

Others haven't go before so can't comment.

My relatives been going to Yim Yim for the suckling pig everytime they visit Bangkok which is quite often. I do have another place my cousin recommended me and much cheaper but the business card is all in Thai leh.

Look at that Vertical Garden! It was so beautifully and environmentally crafted, turning a dull wall into a living breathing one.





The Floor Plan and it was huge!!!

Mega Bangna - The place was huge and spacious with high ceiling.





If you only want to window shop then this Mini Buggy service will suit you but I think you need to pay for the ride.
