Arrived the Airport around 11.30am, check in air-asia flight and take a group photo with the tour guide who has been follow us during our visit.

Our Flight is 2.05pm, so it still have plenty of time to shop around the duty free shop. I brought a swatch watch at 2170 baht where in Malaysia only sell for RM230 which the duty charge by the goverment for watch not really high.

However, it cheap to get alcohol at duty free shop. I brought 1 liter of DOM at Duty Free Shop in Penang Airport for only RM99 where i checked in Jusco Queensbay Mall sell for RM102 for 750ml.

Some of them having lunch at Burger King before we return back to Penang.

don't dare to go up any of this game as i still not yet recover from the early game on Hurricane, the name speak it all.

The weather is hot outside. So, we go to Snow House. It actually an Ice Room with temperature at -4 degree. Feel cold at first entry, however after some time, you just can't hold it. Hands and ears are getting pain. Quickly play the snow slide then come out and continue to lunch. Snow House is the place where most of us get sick after come back from Bangkok. syiksss!!!

after the lunch and getting better, We continue to play the Space Mountain,

So, we going to Rachadapeech for massage. Hock Lye, Hai Kau bring the student to traditional Massage center. While some others go to "Subway", "VIP" and "Nataree". I go to one of the traditional Massage center called "Lemon Grass" 

The whole street rate for 2 hour massage is at 400 - 450 baht. While this Lemon Grass charge for 700 baht for 2 hours. It kind of expensive. The manager request me to check out the place before deciding to massage. The place is different from where i massage in first 2 day. It SPA like environment, cozy, dimmed light, aroma sense and soft music.

Finally, I massage here at price 550 baht. The massaur is professional and i pay 150 baht as tips.

Feel great after massage and tonight is last night in Bangkok, we're not going back to Hotel and sleep. After refreshing at Hotel, we went to a disco called SNOP Bangkok.
