 Today started out back at the tailors, where Jay got fitted and Tammy and I had more fittings with our skirts and blouses. We have got to be the most difficult customers ever (Tammy and I, Jay is about as simple as any guy probably is), but they're great at working with us to get what we want!

After the fitting we decided to go to Ocean World, which is Southeast Asia's largest aquarium. It also happens to be in Bangkok's more upper class mall, so we were looking forward to checking that out. Ocean World was really cool – tons of crazy and different types of sea creatures to be seen, plus we got a ride in a glass bottom boat and road around. We also saw a 4-D show, which is like 3-D, but your seats move with the movie, and you get wind blown at your face or the back of your head to fit in with the show. It was pretty cool!

Once we finished in Ocean World, we decided to look around the mall. It was amazing! And not in the same way as MGK, which is massive and filled with tons of different stuff. This was huge, but it was beautiful! The first two floors are every designer you could imagine – Chanel, Versace, Gucci, etc. The next floor after that is the auto mall, where you can buy a Lamborghini. Porsche, Lotus, or a Maserati. The next couple floors were like a high end department store – like Holt Renfrew, and had an entire floor for cosmetics, one for men's clothing, women's clothing, toys, and household appliances. It was massive! There was some little fashion show/contest thing going on, but we couldn't quite tell what it was. There seemed to be a judging panel that was famous for something, since they were being interviewed and signing autographs – and wearing their sunglasses in the mall. We were being handed free hor doerves just for standing there and observing, but still couldn't quite figure out who or what was happening!

We ate dinner at our new favourite mall, then went back to the tailors for yet another fitting. After that, everyone decided to hangout at the guesthouse for the night, since all the newcomers for the next 20 day trip were arriving.
