I was going to record a video of me walking round the apartment proper cribs style, comeplete with the mandatory jump on the bed – “this is where the magic happens” but my parents read this and don’t need to see that.

So instead, we’ve cleaned up and taken some pretty pictures for you to enjoy.

We’ve chose to live in the Pin Klao area of Bangkok for two main reason’s:

1) Many of Kirstys colleaugues live here so it’s easy for them to share rides to school each morning.
2) We found this apartment, which Kirsty fell in love with seconds after coming through the door.

To give you some more info on the place, we were the first people to view the apartment the day it became available, being far better furnished than many others we looked at we snapped it up sharpish.

The rent however is far more expensive than we were looking for but Kirsty forgets such details when she likes something so here we are – 17,000 baht a month. I of course am happy however as I shall be spending much of my time sitting at the table on the computer while she’s at work.

So enough nonesense, I know you’ve all just come to have a snoop around like real nosey neighbours, so here is our 2 bed, 2 bathroom, 2 balcony apartment on the 21st floor:

**first** – I’ve always wanted to do that. Anyway… after seeing the bed cover for the spare bed I’ve decided that I won’t be coming to stay unless it gets changed. nice apartment though!

Hahaha, can’t believe you brought a Tottenham cover for your bed 😛 The appartment looks great though, I should be in Thailand in a few months as well. But I will be looking for something cheaper 🙂

I know we look over the whole of down town bangkok! And I think the longest single suspension bridge in Asia or the world… some impressive bridge thing anyway!!!

When I first saw it I was stroking the walls by the end – I love it here, shame it couldnt be half the rent though!!

That’s what i loved about it, the others we saw were so small and pokey with one window in the whole place – this is like a fish bowl in comparison! I love it (i think it is a girly thing) Poi just thinks “it’s alright”

Jen May 31, 2011 at 8:19 pm

Hey, there’s always the option of renting out the room to passing backpackers or expats…just a thought

Reply

Kirsty May 31, 2011 at 8:46 pm

yeah we’ve thought about that – maybe we should promote it on our blog! The first one to come and happily sleep under tottenham covers can stay for free!!! 🙂

Beautiful inside and so open and well lit with all the windows — how could you not fall in love with it?!

The view is fantastic. You should’ve gone ahead and filmed the video – since you said what the idea was anyway, I doubt actually showing it would’ve been more offensive to parents!

I fell in love with the view – it’s amazing I always find myself just staring out of the window absent mindedly! Yeah do it, although you get paid a ton more money to work in Korea!

The pad looks sweet, btw. I am getting so freaking ready for Thailand again, it’s killing me.

I know – maybe we’re above the smog??? COME COME COME!!! You can stay in our spare room… although three people in there could cause a bit of mayhem!
