7am: Rise and shine as we are off to Pratunam Morning market!!! This is a morning market which closes at about 10am, it's open air and not within a shopping mall. Prices start from 100 baht wholesale, and by means of wholesale, you will need to buy at least 3 of the same item or design, you can't mix or match.

Next stop was Soi 19 Wanton Noodles - Look at that snaking queue!!!
How to get there: Located in the same lane as Shibuya 19 Shopping Mall. On the road opposite Platinum Mall, walk towards Shibuya 19 Mall and McDonald's (against the traffic flow). When you see McDonald's, turn right into Soi 19. You should see the eatery somewhere in the middle of the lane on the right hand side plus a queue... that starts about 9ish in the morning.
Whilst waiting for our noodles to come, hubs is busy coordinating with carpenter via whatsapp
so many people eating the same bowl of noodles.
each bowl is 100 baht. Not cheap and the portion is small.
