Crazy for Corn Dogs

My childhood group of friends have had a longstanding tradition of Sunday brunch/lunch for about 20 years now ( no points for guessing my age!) and we normally revisit our usual haunts in Bangkok for our tried and true favourites. This weekend was no exception - we started out at our favourite Korean BBQ place, and as we finished we decided to walk over to K Village, a community mall nearby, for coffee. As we were walking towards the coffee shop, we noted a small fast food place nearby  named "Corn Dog Dude". As third culture kids, we appreciate and love a good corn dog, and the thought that this entire joint was dedicated solely to corn dogs intrigued us - we had to look closer! The menu didnot disappoint!

A fast food lovers dream menu!

As  big fans of fast food, we decided we needed to come back soon for a good old fast food junkie meal complete with buffalo wings and chili cheese fries! However, today we were already extremely full from our Korean feast, so we decided to tread lightly and try out the desserts - yes, they have corn dog desserts! We ordered the Marshmallow dog and it was so scrumptious that we went for a second helping along with another order of Snickers Dogs! 

Biting into the crunchy sugared dough of the Marshmallow Dog revealed a lightly melted marshmallow - soo amazingly delicious! 

The Snickers Dog with a melted Snickers Bar within a sugared first dough crust - love! Also, our second order of Marshmallow Dogs which came in threes. Definitely a great way to enjoy dessert!

We will definitely be back soon for a full meal!

Anna Dello Russo at H&M ( aka. Reptile Mania!!)

I'm happy to report that Bangkok finally opened its first H&M last week! As is the norm with all new things here in the Eastern City of Angels, people queued up for hours during the first few days to get in. I decided to forgo the those opening days and decided to drop by today as I was in the area, hoping that the crowds would have subsided.  What a surprise to find that today is the day H&M launches its Anna Dello Russo at H&M line - and no lines either! Yay!

People were hustling and bustling at the AdR display and I managed to elbow my way through to the front of the display. Things were disappearing fast and people were literally grabbing boxes from right under one another - I actually had one box in my arm when a man ( Yes, a MAN! ) tried to reach for it FROM OUT OF MY HANDS!!! How crazy is that?!? Here are a few of the beautiful pieces from her line - 

Love love love the reptilian theme! I apologize for the bad picture quality - the staff didn't allow me to take pictures of the actual pieces so I had to take pictures of the picture of each piece! But I did manage to sneak in one shot of the turquoise snake necklace when noone was looking! hehe.

Seeing things being snatched up left and right from all around me, I knew I had to act fast! I looked and immediately grabbed, going by the theory that your gut instinct is always the right one. If my gut said a piece was nice, that was that. No second guessing, no time for pondering! Luckily, my gut is well seasoned when it comes to making choices in high pressure moments like these, esp. when it comes to accessories!!! 

Here are two pieces I got from the Anna Dello Russo's collection line. Love this reptilian line! ( my own name for it, not hers! ). Even though there was only a limited selection left by the time I got there, I am very happy with the pieces I managed to get!

Snake Attack!!

Besides the lovely pieces, I also fell in love with the shopping bag for her line - take a look...

Isn't it cool?

My inaugural visit to Bangkok's first H&M and I am extremely happy with my purchases! As all of you know, I am an accessories gal at heart so I am thrilled that I happened upon Anna Dello Russo at H&M today. Her collection is trendy and modern yet so timeless as well. Love!
