Shopping "Trophies"

My wife managed to download and send to me the photos that I have taken in BKK. Below are some photos of the shopping “Trophies”. I start off with the Fridge as so far it’s the most expensive items. It cost 31,900 baht which is almost Rm3K. The brand is LG. It’s quite big. The capacity is around 20 Q. It’s the type of fridge that I love to look at as it allows me to dump all the vegetables and meat and still looks empty. The temperature inside the fridge is digitally control unlike the one that I have in KL which is control by turning the knob. This is control by pressing a button and you could hear “Tit Tit” sound. It will also alert you if you did not close the door properly, again by “Tit Tit” sound. I guess the whole fridge is program to give “Tit Tit” sound. The whole compartment on the left is actually the freezer and the right is the normal one whereby you could keep vegetable and other dry items. There is also a specific place to keep wine. I love this “Tit Tit” fridge. It comes with a complimentary 21 inch LG Flat screen Tv also, hahaha

The next most expensive item is the air condition in my room. It cost around 28,000 baht, around Rm2.8K. It’s Daikin and it has the power of 1,400 BTU. I am not sure if this brand is found else where but I was told that this is one of the top brands around in Thailand. So far I did not really play around with any function as I guess Air Cond does not have much. It’s just the start button, Temperature up and down button, fan speed, mode, automatic moving up and down, "powerful" mode and others. I wish human have a remote like this, if you wish them to be “hotter” press the “Too Cool” button and you wish them to be more “powerful” press the button that has a picture that is almost similar to Hulk. I guess a lot of women wish to have this button for their BF and husband, hahaha. Sigh! I wish. I wish.

The water filter from Amway which cost around 24,000 baht, it has a big carbon filter on the left and the ultraviolet lamp on the right. I have tasted the filter water. It tastes better than the drinking water like Singha in Thailand. Anyway I do not really trust water filter, I have a bad experience with the one in my Malaysia house, and it causes “air” in my stomach, hence I will still boil it before I drank it.

The last item in this post is the washing machine from Samsung which cost 17,000 baht. It allows to load 9kg of filthy clothes. My wife likes it a lot as it has a timer. It allows you to just throw the clothes inside overnight and set it to be ready at maybe somewhere in the morning hence you could just wake up and ready to hang the clothes. It has a lot of functions which I have yet to explore. I am not sure if my next trip will again end up with a load of shopping “trophies”, I guess I will need to find a way to grow money, hahaha…..

Nice, nice! I love shopping for the house too, it's a good feeling when you see all new stuff in the house. Erh .. your water filter looks like a very high-tech toilet bowl. When I first saw the picture w/o reading the contents, I seriously thought that it was a toilet bowl (or as they would so elegantly call it "water closet" here). Hehehe, sorry lah ...
