There is nothing classified my friend as shopaholic but she is, indeed, in love with shopping. This time around, her interest in fabric passes from Naraya to Jim Thompson. So we spent a few hours looking around Jim Thompson shops in Siam Paragon, Central World and Isetan Branches but, for no apparent reason, I suggested her to shop around for same products @ Jim Thompson Outlet at 153, Soi Sukhumvit 93. I called the shop for detailed direction and took a taxi to go there. Of course, the price are generally cheaper, the staffs are amicable and plus foreigners can claim Value Added Tax (VAT). As it was already lunchtime when we reached there, we decided to have lunch @ the café first and do the shopping later. She ordered stir-fried flat rice noodle with chicken and I had my favorite Raad Naa Kung (shrimp and vegetable gravy flat rice noodle). With drinks, our lunch costs 15 US$ and I thank my friend of this delicious meal. She got a blouse, a tie, cushion covers, handkerchiefs but couldn’t find the purse she liked. By the way, the crunchy muesli cookie and almond cookie from the café taste great and it has been snacks of the month for me. Overall it was a nice shopping day without sweat.
