shabu-shabu dinner at MK RESTAURANT Siam Square

It's funny when you know somebody online for years and meet them for the first time but in another country pa.Same feeling you get when an old acquaintance you haven't seen for quite sometime and meet them in another land.That happened in 2012 with Doc Gelo in Penang.Fast forward 2013 and it's dejavu again. This time, a high school friend/classmate --Gideon -- sa Bangkok pa talaga kami nagkita.

with Gideon at MK SUKI RESTAURANT Siam Square


Earlier that day, I kept calling him for directions due to my lack of research on how to go around Bangkok.It was an advantage that our last destination prior to the meetup was Wat Arun along the banks of Chao Phraya River.In Bangkok, they maximize the use of this mighty river not just for easy flow of goods but for public transport as well.Along the river are many ferry stations.Though most of the stations are rather small and made of wooden platforms, I think they are really efficient ----and cheap too.

We
1.took the ferry from Chang Station to Central Pier
2.then transferred to BTS Sky Train ( Sukhumvit Line) to Siam Station.

Tumambay muna kamo sandali syempre sa Chang Station and waited for dusk to see Wat Arun light up.Such a wonderful view.

A little drama happened when we got to Siam Station.There were five of us (2 men,3 women) and two of the girls were separated from us.A little commotion ensued and we were in the middle of an argument when our friend Gideon showed up.What a way to greet somebody you haven't seen in years.toinks.


We moved inside the food court of Siam Paragon,one of the most famous shopping malls in Thailand.Not knowing what to eat prompted me to look in the list given to us by our godmother.Highlighted in capital letter is MK SUKI.We originally thought it's a dish until our friend Gideon directed us outside Siam Paragon.It turns out to be a restaurant chain. Haha!

MK RESTAURANT is a famous chain in Thailand, Japan and other Asian Countries and they are well known for Thai Suki which is their version of shabu-shabu or Chinese hotpot.

I'd like to quote our Ninang Cynthia saying "we call it shabu-shabu here, but it's called "thai suki" in Thailand... the secret to MK's delicious thai suki is their sauce".

I mentioned Doc Gelo in the first part of this post because our meeting with him accidentally ended with a similar resemblance ----we ended in a famous shabu-shabu chain.

It is interesting to note that a restaurant this high end (although not so high end) doesn't have wifi service.
I guess it's their way of saying

"No Wi-fi, talk to each other" haha!

Waiters are also impossible to talk with in English.If not with our friend who speaks fluent Thai, ordering would have been another struggle.

I am not a big fan of hot pots but I certainly enjoyed the food.Don't ask my companions, they are shabu-shabu addicts so you kinda know what that means.Noticed that they use the freshest of ingredients.The meatballs are really tender and the vegetables look like they have been newly harvested.

The best part was that Gideon paid for the bill despite our protest.I have no idea therefore how much it all costs exactly but I reckon it was more than 1,000 Baht.

The branch closes at 10:30pm so we had to leave sooner.Our friend has work the following day so we parted ways a few minutes after getting out.Bitin ang kwentuhan.

    what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  15. It's a wonderful shift when kids start teaching parents. In other words,
    I only work with people who work and want to learn how to
    be financially secure. on a separate tab right next to the private one or just as
    another wall and info page next to the main profile, allowing for
    it to be within the Facebook site, but with the possibility to completely block the private section, when accessed from certain locations, while also allowing the
    user to keep both profiles and their connections separated via
    respective privacy settings.

    your post. They are very convincing and will definitely
    work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters.
