Soon after we had a drink together in upper part of Isetan on Central World Plaza, I am going back to see the Booth of Momotaro Jeans on the 3rd floor.

Kishimoto-san, introduced me to Japan Blue label, which is the brand that also made in Okayama, but only sell outside Japan.

The cut is also more modern and the detail is not very complicated,He is trying to do more Experimental things with Japan Blue.

Tabuchi-san explained that Outside Japan,people like Slim fit cut way better than classic straight cut,it is almost impossible to sell classic straight cut fit outside Japan.

So that is the reason why Japan Blue on make slim cut and slim straight cut for overseas market.

Japan Blue Product, using Indigo and Black for weft,the other one is the used one

Tabuchi-san told me that the special one is Indigo for wrap and black for weft,which make a very beautiful fading after people wear it

Also, Momotaro offer special print that will only painted in Bangkok, a very beautiful pattern that mix Going to war flag stripes with Thailand’s .National flag, and the other one is Momotaro riding an elephant (as elephant is the symbol of Thailand).

Thai Trip – Second day (September 29th) – A Morning in Bangkok

Motorcycle Taxi and Tuk Tuk

Hello Mister,

As it is my first morning in Bangkok, I have decided to take a walk around Silom, where I stayed in Bangkok

It is very similar with my hometown Jakarta, but Bangkok is more modern way beyond Jakarta for its Transportation infrastructure.

Silom road in The Morning

There is a lot of cadger around the street, they are selling rice,meat satay (I think it is pork or/and chicken) and some looks like just in Indonesia.

In the corner of the street, I saw a stall that looks very Indonesian, it is what I called Nasi Rames in Indonesia, where you can pick the topping for your food,usually they had veggie, chicken, meat, seafood, etc

Do you want "Nasi Rames" ?

Even though Bangkok is very modern today, Bangkok still keep and maintain their heritage and culture, a very similar scenery in Bali

This is located in the front of a big building

All the people are nice and Bangkok,but since I really looked like Thai, most of them think that I am a Thai and speak to me in Thai, and sometimes complain for something that i didn’t even know.

Soon I go back to my hostel to prepare to meet my friends in Siam.
