Bangkok - Citadines Soi 8

cute bengal cat
Byakko ain't here, but looking at him makes me feel home.

With a bit of nostalgy, from doing this together with Enrique when we moved to Japan let me introduce you my 25m2 home of the month. Citadines is a staple for serviced apartments in Bangkok - in fact the guy at the reception recalled my face from when I came last year to stay in the one at soi 11, can you believe that? - not huge, but conveniently located and serviced, with an option for breakfast or dinner for those of you not keen on cooking your own stuff.

For the rest, just get some food and wine from Villa Market in Soi 11 or Tops Market (under Robinson, between soi 17 and soi 19), to enjoy some conversation for those back home in the intimacy of the little apartment. Truth is, the place ain't big but well distributed and spacious when you manage to get all your stuff in place with nothing hanging around. As you can judge by the pictures, my 4 suitcases fell into place leading to some kind of micro-sized harmony.

I brought a large cup, because I am a maniac for 500ml coffee in the morning and the pink Daruma, to ensure my dreams are pursued.

The kitchen is just enough for me to cut my veggies

Managed to get all my clothes into the closet (thanks god I decided to carry some hangers with me)

I am hiding more clothes under the TV - which I actually haven´t yet turned on - but is OK as long as it looks neat right...

Bedtime reading by Economist, laundry and a handbag to be picked up!

Minisized living room, right besides the beginning of the bathroom... Just right to get by!

The light is coming through nicely during daytime, much more liveable than the place in Soi 11 indeed.

Have you ever lived in a space this small?
