CMK TRAVELS : SHOPPING AT SHIBUYA 19 MALL (BANGKOK, THAILAND)


Mommy and I went to behold the beauty of Bangkok, 
Thailand last December 2012 (click HERE).
Among all other must-do things, shopping is definitely on the top list!
 There are so many fashion malls around Bangkok.
One of those is Shibuya 19 Mall.

DETAILS
Address: Petchaburi Rd, Thanon Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi, Bangkok, 10400
How to get there? It's a 5-7-minute walk from Platinum Fashion Mall
Landmark: There's Mc Donalds right in front of the mall.
Conversion: 1 Thai Baht = 1.2 Philippine Pesos (approx)

TOP 3 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT SHIBUYA 19 MALL

 ♣ Jewelries Overload ♣
I'm not really a super fan of golden blings but since I was at Thailand,  
why not dig for Bangkok golds anyway? I love their bracelets! Price ranges:
Bracelets: 80 to 100 THB
Necklaces: 100 to 120 THB
Rings: 60 to 80 THB

They offer juicy discounts. Say, if you buy 2 bracelets,  
they'll reduce the price to up to 20%.  


 ♣ Walking distance from Platinum Mall ♣
Platinum Mall warrants a separate blog post but suffice to say 
Shibuya 19 mall is a walking distance to other major malls. 
They have overpass bridges too. It's more like what we have in the PH.

Side Note: Me and mom were walking along the little tiangges (botiques), when I spotted this heart shaped long necklace. I asked the lady how much is it. Here goes:

Tin: Sawadee! (Hello) How much is this? 
Lady: It's 2 for 50 Baht.
Tin (to mommy): Hala ayoko naman ng 2 ma, isa lang ang gusto ko.

Somebody from behind butt in and said:
Him (Becky): Gusto mo tig-isa tayo?
Tin: Ay sige. Thank you teng :)     
Sales Lady was shocked in amazement. She blurted "Filipinos? Very good!"
 

 ♣ Fashionable Clothes for All Sizes! ♣
One thing that's noteworthy about this mall is it's 
flexibility of stocks in terms of sizes.
Other malls have unbelievably small sizes. It seems that they're for 10 - 13 tweens.
And well, those are not my sizes so I was a bit sad. But my eyes lit up here,
because they have larger (and realistic) sizes for me and mommy!

Don't forget to drop by at Shibuya 19 mall when you get a chance to visit Bangkok.
I should warn you though that it's more of a bazaar type of shopping center.
Enjoy shopping. As they say:
"Shopping is much cheaper than a psychiatrist." 
Hahaha! -CMK.
