Beberapa hari lalu seorang teman yang tinggal di Bangkok bercerita bahwa dia telah ‘terkena hipnotis’ di sebuah pusat perbelanjaan bernama JJ Mall (dekat dengan JJ Market alias Chatuchak Weekend Market). Modusnya dan pelakunya cukup menarik dan belum pernah saya dengar sebelumnya. Berikut cerita singkatnya dan ada baiknya pembaca simak karena hal-hal semacam ini bisa kita temui di tempat-tempat ramai di Bangkok. More

Chatuchak Weekend Market Revisited

2 Comments

100_4110It’s been amazing to see how people from around the world search ‘chatuchak’ in the search engines. Many of them stranded at this blog.Well, the article about Chatuchak market here is quite…. adequate, I would say, even the posting is quite old. ‘Chatuchak’ refers to the infamous Chatuchak or Jatujak weekend market in Bangkok city. So what’s going on now at Chatuchak weekend market? Nothing is really changed I suppose. I know it from the tone of stories from old friends who are still staying in greater Bangkok. But let’s revisit it a moment.

Chatuchak Weekend Market – Shop and Eat (Halal Food)

People write tons of stories about the place. So let’s zoom it in at a particular part. Let’s go to the corner where music instruments are sold in a shop. The shop is owned by an old man who is an army retiree. He was a soldier and was a musician at the same time. He plays violin and guitar for sure (I saw him played) and probably other instruments. He used to play violin professionally and his skill even ever made him visit New York for a concert. He showed me his picture standing on a crossing boat at the bay. At the back, Liberty statue and the WTC twin tower were standing (it was before 9/11 for sure). The photographer was facing New York so he was at New Jersey side, I think. More

I almost forgot how fun gardening was until I found this rooftop garden project in Canada in the internet. Initially, I wanted to make my hydroponic installation at my balcony (I’m always interested in growing crops hydroponically), but it turned out that it was more costly than I thought. So I scrapped the idea and moved into conventional gardening: pot, dirt, and compost, at balcony 60 meter above the ground of Bangkok. More

Ones who have visited Bangkok would usually not miss this place in their itinerary: the enormous (literally) Chatuchak weekend market (also so called Jatujak or JJ market). With the area of about 28 acres (about 11 hectare) and around 10,000 stalls (some say 15,000 stalls and it seems no one ever knows the exact number), Chatuchak weekend market claims itself as the biggest market in the country and one of the world’s largest weekend markets. Check what you can get in this market next to Chatuchak park, how to get there, some useful advises from friends, and most importantly, where to eat (halal food) in this busy market.
