Twinings Tea Boutique, NaRaYa & Krispy Kreme (Thailand, Bangkok)

After our dinner at Joom Zap Hut, our next destination was NaRaYa at Siam Discovery. Along the way,  we past by Twinings Tea Boutique which was located on level 1 of Central World. 
 Something caught our eyes. Something that looks bright, cheerful and colour!
Well, it was Macarons which were on display at a strategic position to tempt attract passersby! They looked too good to resist! So much so that we had to stop to purchase them.  
We purchases 5 Macarons in total to bring back to the hotel for 'supper'. The Macarons were quite good. The two outer shells were crisp and the cream inside was not overly sweet. Each Macarons cost 40 Baht (S$1.67)! It was a real steal considering the quality and taste.

After the purchasing the Macarons, we continued our journey to the west NaRaYa at Siam Discovery. Interesting, although it was raining, our journey from Central World to Siam Discovery was sheltered! From Central World, we had to make our way to Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and then Siam Discovery which was a good 15 minutes walk!

The reason why there was no need for any umbrellas (i.e. it was sheltered) was because of these! Temporary tunnels (like those used in Barclays Premier League) along with anti slip mats were used to ensure that commuters or shoppers were fully sheltered from the rain.

In addition, there were cleaners constantly mopping the entrance and exit of the tunnels too. Amazing Thailand! Such excellent thought and service! Kudos!
NaRaYa at Siam Discovery
At last we reached NaRaYa at Siam Discovery. The shop opens daily from 10am to 10pm. NaRaYa is a Thai company that designs, manufactures and sells fabric bags and accessories. It has outlets in Asia, Europe and Middle East. In Bangkok, it has over 15 outlets! NaRaYa is widely known for their quality fabric, colours, designs and low cost. It has been able to sell products so cheaply partly because the manufacturing is done in Thailand; low cost country, where labour is cheap and there is better control).

The irony was that we did not know that NaRaYa had an outlet in Central World - the place where we had dinner at! I have appended NaRaYa outlets' locations in Bangkok for easy reference.

After shopping at NaRaYa, we proceed to Siam Paragon to purchase Krispy Kreme Donuts for the next day's breakfast.
We arrived just before 9pm (their closing time). Most of the donuts including Original Glazed were sold out.

Having left with no choice,we purchased the Dark Chocolate and Powdered Strawberry Filled. Each Doughnut cost 35 Baht (S$1.46). They were just way too sweet.

After buying the donuts, we proceed for our supper at After You Dessert Café which I will be rating as a die die must try. I shall post on that in the next post.
