Day 2 (in chronological order)
Conclusion: Reflections on trip to Bangkok
Breakfast @ Diwan Restaurant, Al Meroz Hotel Bangkok (Bangkok, Thailand)
My hotel stay at Al Meroz hotel comes with buffet breakfast. Even though the buffet spread was not extensive, I was thankful that I didn’t have to hunt for halal food so early in the morning, eat leftovers from yesterday or cook instant noodles for breakfast.
My hotel stay at Al Meroz hotel comes with buffet breakfast. Again, this hotel offers me convenience that I am grateful for. I went down to Diwan Restaurant for breakfast early at about 7 am and there were a few families already present. I believe they were Malays, not Thais. The number of the food choices for the breakfast buffet was modest, half of what was served for the lunch buffet yesterday.
I believe only half of the buffet trays had food in them.

There are not many hotels in Bangkok that offer halal breakfast buffet. Al Meroz hotel is one of the very few that does.
So I was thankful that I was well-fed at the beginning of my second day in Bangkok. After having had so much to eat during breakfast, I didn’t have to worry about food till late afternoon.
Isn’t that an amazing thing? If there was no halal breakfast that morning, I would either have go out of the hotel early in the morning to hunt for food (if I am not lazy), eat leftovers from yesterday (if I am not worried I would suffer diarrhea throughout the day) or simply cook instant noodles in the hotel room (and that would be the saddest option).
