Welcome to part 2 post of the Bangkok trip! The is the day
that hellven was with me!!!! We had a pretty lazy day. We
woke up at about noon, becos the day before we were working
at the AFA cafe, a bit exhausted. Speaking of which I will be
blogging about my AFATH soon. Speaking of which of which. I
realized I had never blog about my AFA experience ever since
the 1st year. And it’s been 4 years… LOL. Okay la I might blog
the recent ones, I super love the year where Qiu, soap and XX
came to support me and Miya. And My 1st time in AFA Indo…
Also in BKK…. YES THE RECENT YEARS ONES!! Maybe I should
just do a compilation post of all!! For the photos selections I had
CUT THROAT. Lol. 
2
Like I blabber before I always have difficulty one photo selections!!!
I can’t make up my mind on which photos to pick even for the selfies,
that explains some of the post I have like massive amount of selfies,
cos I think they are all chio/photoshop-worthy. LOL.

When I googling for cafes to go to, I actually found this totally undiscovered
by the foreigners cafe. The B-story! I was telling hellven I wanted to go
to those not popular ones, like the karmakamet, it is so overly hype! I
wanna be a true hipster and go to those cool cafes that nobody been
to. LOL. 
I didn’t wanna share with you guys which cafe this is lor. But one of the
promise I made to myself as coming back as a full time blogger is to be
one of those selfless and mega sharing/generous blogger. Lol. I living to
the expectation.
11
THIS B-STORY IS SOOOOOO CHIO!!!! Omg I swear I was love at 1st
sight. When I got there. I was like. Why is this place not discovered by
the mass yet…? Lol. It’s pretty popular with the locals but I don’t see
much forefingers like the karmakamet. So I happy went around the
entire cafe (it’s two stories) to snap my heart out. Lol.

Our days in Bangkok was so fun. Me and hellven don’t meet up often
as he super busy with school and also he got a lot of friends u like me.
lol. So when we know we can stay together for the AFATH event,
major happy!!! We haddddd sooooooo much to catch up on. He is one
of the gold friend that I get to know from AFA events. One of which was
7Miyake and Nich. I really treasure them like mad! Well as you grow older.
U will realized it’s super hard to make friends, unlike when I was younger.
So when I could actually make real friends. I will treasure them like mad.

I have very Low expectations for cafe food as most of them are very meh. 
Their selling post is the interior design and coffee… But this B-Story
food was A W E S O M E!! I finished everything on my plate (that don’t
usually happen)!! Even hellven finished everything too. And their desserts…

B-Story cafe
This B-story was a shooting set of a Korean drama as well! I saw it on
their Facebook, both days I went it was actually pretty decent crowd,
not too much people but, it will be so awesome if the place is empty..
I could have made full use of the place and shoot till the last corner of
the cafe. Lol but i didn’t, partially because i forget to charge my DSLR….

In the month of June this year, i went to Thailand Bangkok for a short
work/getaway trip… i was invited to AFA Thailand for the 1st time! it
was AFA in Thailand for the first year as well, i m super glad that i was
one of the only 2 butlers that are invited, the other butler is a close friend
of mine, hellven. it was a fun trip! 
 
i extended the trip by 2 more days so i could have some personal time
alone, i spent my alone time in Bangkok sleeping, walking around, exploring
some hipster cafes and relaxing.

During this trip, i took plenty of selfies, eh… not bad selfies, so i decided
to post them. lol, the entire trip photos round up to almost hundred over
pics, and i decided to break the entire trip photos into 3 parts.
 
Reason i hate breaking travel posts into parts:

1. I hate that the posts will other irrelevant posts in between.

2. normally you will start with day 1, day 2, day 3, but when readers reads

3. your blog, the newest post will line up on top, so the sequence will be

4. mixed up, it become day 3, day 2 and day1. hate it…

5. No impact of one long ass blog post.

 
but i realised the moment all the contents are within one post, it will get flush
down into the next page in a snap. lol. that makes me don’t wanna update more
stuff because i want the post that i put in so much effort stay on 1st page for
longer time. dilemma.. i just can’t both… 
8
 
So i came up with a solution, i will bring the long ass post into parts but i m
updating the post other way round, i will start from day 3 then day 2 then end
with day, so when readers read my blog, it will be start with day 1 being the
newest post, then go down like that. and i will post each day post with a 1 day
interval, no new update in between. so it will a perfect solution, full chronicle
sequence, no irrelevant post in between and most important the post with
much effort wouldn’t get flush down that quickly.

I realised all three days photos are taken at cafes. therefore i name the 3 posts
as 2015 Drink Coffee, Free, Love. while styling the logo, i styled it as 2 drink 0
coffee 1 free 5 love.
22
Kinda make a little sense to me, like it meant, Drink Zero
Coffee, Want Free(dom), Find love.

Everyday Karmakamet

This cafe is really tiny YET super pretty, they sell many fragrances and lifestyle
products, like skin care, body and hair care, even plates and stationary…
something like a small scale Muji, but their stuff are very please at eye sight,very
pretty, i bought a glass bottle… but broke it within a week after coming back to
singapore… so heart pain. lol.

This cafe is the sister outlet of the famous karmakamet Diner, that one that overly
hyped all over instagram, the one with the rainbow cotton candy, i m sure you seen it
before, every Singaporean who visit bangkok recently will visit that cafe. the Everyday
Karmakamet is definitely less over plugged and crowded, so if you are true blood hipster
( want to discover and experience the undiscovered/less exposed places/things) here’s
where you should go!

This is actually the last day of my bangkok trip, right after the onesome brunch at Everyday
Karmakamet i packed up and headed to the airport, one the way back to sg i actually
misplaced my SD card….. yes i know right, super drama.
5
then later on i even called my
thai friend to help me call up the airport to find it, but later i realised the SD card was
actually left at this korean BBQ place in singapore!!!!! HENG!!!! if not this entire post will
even be happening.

I reached back sg at about 11pm, i rushed my ass down to meet hellven and nich for a
farewell supper (where i misplace my SD card.as this nich is leaving for shanghai for a
entire year… meaning i will not able to see him for that long, he is one of those friends
who i don’t meet up often, but when i do, i always have so much to say!!!! its kinda sad
that we wouldn’t be seeing one another for a long time, but at the same time, i m very
happy for him, anyone who is doing stuff good for their future is applaudable. we had a
good time catching up and saying goodbye. 
 
will miss him dearly!

Come back 1 day later for the part 2 of the 2015 Drink Coffee. Free. Love post! on
the next post, there will more photos of the handsome hellven!! he was with me 
for 1 day in bkk. heh. also other part of Nut Case Collection 2 catalogue!! 
 

To be honest, a straight flush of 3 consecutive blog advs…. i felt guilty AF…
i told myself, i need to blog something interesting before i could have the 
cheeks to blog another advert, i spent the entire week doing this post,
luckily, i m breaking it up into 3 shorter post, if not i sound kinda that as its 
one just update. lol. i m gonna get super super super super super super
busy… well, i kinda one shot accepted too many advertorials. this month
alone i accepted 10 advs…. okay yes, its kinda massive, i didn’t know!!! 
i promise myself to be busy, so when advertisers came and all i did was 
accept them without thinking then when i seat back and count. WEETEEEFF
……

It’s too late to back out. looking on the bright side, coming back to blog
full time, i have a fantastic start!! but come to think about it, i promise 
you guys, the ratio of advs : non-adv blog posts will be 1:2… that means, 
i’ll have I NEED TO BLOG 20 BLOG POST TO CLEAR 10 ADVS. WEETEEF…
KILL ME NOW…..

3

In case you are wondering, actually i m wondering too, since i m so freaking
busy, why do i still wanna carry on with the nut case..? well, before i start the
nut case, i promise myself to NOT easily give up on it, i guess many blogshop
and online business all had wonderful beginnings but most of them didn’t 
sustain, as maybe one bad collection, one bad week, one bad month. they 
simply just stop trying and give up, but look, those successful blogshops been
there done that, the only reason they are alive to this date, it’s not because
they had awesome winning formula… simply because they refuse to give up.

23

So this is my fight, doing the nut case, don’t earn me much really, actually to this
date i kinda haven’t even earn back my investment, but i wanna continue to do it 
to test my patience, the level of perseverance, my ability to not giving up.. i could
do this, i could do bigger things next time. the nut case will be my little experiment 
for future business adventures!
