Hello Cats! Hello Alpacas!

And so, other than lavish temples, cheap massages, good food and fancy hotels, Bangkok has more to offer!
A and I checked out three theme cafes in Bangkok and I’m here to share more about what we think of them.

We have heard (or seen) many cat cafes because they are getting so popular these days.
But this one that we visited is one of the prettiest I’ve seen so far!
Other than the cafe section, they also have a retail section, as well as a grooming arm!

The cats here are really pretty! And we saw 3 (or was it 4) Maine Coons,
and A went crazy because she really likes her cats BIG! Hahahahaha.
But to be frank, the Maine Coons looked really majestic!

The pictures you see above is the usual sight during most of the time.
We were also lucky enough to witness how feeding time was like at the cafe!
The lady with the cat food walked into the room with a tray with all the cat food and went “Party time! Party time!”.

We had tea and a small bread pudding, it wasn’t expensive at all.


They had a little glass enclosure that says “Delivery Room”, when we approached it,
we saw 4 little British Shorthair kittens in it. We really loved this place!
We were also tempted to by this t-shirt. Heh! The merchandises were on the pricey side though. 😡

The address of Purr Cat Cafe Club is 63 Soi Sukhumvit 53, Khlongtunnua, กรุงเทพมหานคร 10110, Thailand.
In case you want to check it out on your next trip.
It’s in the Thonglor area so I recommend dinner at one of the other nicer restaurants nearby. 🙂

Thanks to Jayne Tham, we also found out that there is an Alpaca Farm Cafe in town!

ALPACAS! They are like, HOW CUTE!

This one is slightly out of the main city area but it’s not too far by taxi.
Unfortunately, they open only after 5pm so the traffic was bad and it took us almost an hour of taxi ride to get there.
It was well worth it though, and you’ll see why!

It’s a huge huge place – a bit like an open-air Marche style where there are different food stores you can get your food from.
Actually not that much, just 3 different ones. :p
Other than alpacas, who are the star of the restaurant, we also spotted horses, ducks, bunnies and cats around here.
It really feels more like a petting zoo, and we really enjoyed our time here.
It was our first time seeing an Alpaca in real life – I didn’t know they were so friendly!
The whole time I was worried that they might spit at me. Fortunately, nothing happened. Hahaha! :p

I like how they are all looking at the camera. :p


One word of caution though, this place can be a mosquito-feeding ground at night, so if you prefer dining outdoors,
make sure you arm yourself with an insect repellent or cover up well.
If not, you can also choose to sit indoors where it’s air conditioned.

Alpaca View Farm and Cuisine is located at 11 Soi Ladprao-Wanghin 71, Ladprao Rd, Bangkok 10320.
Do note that they open only after 5pm, and opens till late.
Good to chill with beer and live music! 🙂

The last “cat” cafe we visited was…


TADAH! It’s also a cat ya? Hahaha!
We really didn’t come with the intention to visit this one, but saw it while we were roaming around the new Siam Square 1 mall.
It is really massive spanning across 3 storeys, so we decided to have some tea there.

It was MASSIVELY pink and Hello Kitty all over the place, I think A also fainted.
(Thanks A, for caving in to my whims and fancies) HAHA!

They mainly serve drinks and some light desserts, and only savoury item they had on the menu was sandwiches.
I am auntie at heart and need to eat some “salty food” so I went ahead and ordered a serving of sandwich. 🙂
The food looked really cute (except that pink cake that looks too artificially pink).
Oh, and that aggressively pink whipped cream on our iced chocolate scares me too.


My iced strawberry tea was served in a Hello Kitty zippy-cup which I get to keep.
Maybe that explains why it costs us almost 40 SGD for that bit of food.
We had to collect the food on our own too. 😦

The food was really quite bad.
And we couldn’t bring ourselves to eat too much of that ridiculously-pink cake.
I should have known – heard too many horror stories about the food at Hello Kitty cafes.

And because we are rebels, we did this.


No offence, Kitty. You know I still love you.


I forced A to take a picture with Hello Kitty too….

Anyhoos, thank you A for walking into a Hello Kitty Cafe with me.
Now everyone knows you went to a Hello Kitty, you’re not that cool anymore.

This is what our faces will be like the next time we see a Hello Kitty Cafe:


LOL! And how it’ll be like the next time we see a mega gadget store:


I guess, opposite attracts ya? LMAO.
