Pandora and Tiffany fakes are found abundantly everywhere in Bangkok. Pandora, a local German brand (more well known internationally than Thomas Sabo) cost quite a bit when it is fully assembled like the ones showned here. Perhaps in the region of 500 Euro each bracelet but I am happy to bring 4 back with nothing over 400 Baht each. And that´s like 8 Euro???! Besides, it is pure silver. If I am not mistaken, this brand is available in Singapore and Hongkong in Asia region only hence ...
Bought some summer tops for myself, and two dresses for my nieces. I have been told again and again to hit Pratunam Mall for wholesale price clothes. Most of the tops you see here cost no more than 100 Baht /10 Ringgit / 2 Euro per piece which was crazyyyy isn´t it? I absolutely adoreeee my oversize Volkswagon T-Shirt with print back to back which I pair with leggings and a ballet shoe. Super comfy and cooling especially during HOT, CNY period.
I also brought home Asian homeware to further asianised my German home. Some cute Japanese and Chinese Wooden Dolls (from KL though), a Japanese Teapot Set which matches perfectly to our livingroom´s vases, Silver and Green Silk Tablerunners and Tablemats, with matching chopsticks and something not asian related but I thought I´d post up too - a gorgeoussssss Feld Hat which I have no idea where I am going to wear them to.
One of the things hubby had been telling me not to bring back again and again from Asia are counterfeit products. I had problems smuggling my Pandora bracelet in but I figured, if in the event they confiscate them then heck it. It is not that important after all. But there´s one counterfeit item that I absolutely adore and it is my 1500 Baht Leather Slingbag which happen to be a Mulberry brand counterfeit. I got them coz it is made of beautiful leather and the workmanship poured into it is worth every single Baht paid, and honestly, I don´t give a damn about that logo. And so you can imagine how it is like when I lugged them back via Frankfurt airport - which happen to be notoriously known for stringent immigration control. It was quite an experience really and thankfully, nothing happened. Phew! Two pairs of Flats came back with me too. They not only look good, they are very unVincci which means, pretty good quality for a 250 Baht shoe! I wore them immediately and felt at ease with it instantly. And oh, the Two Colourful Belts are for my sis.
