Last month has been marvellous, I should say. Our (almost) one month stay in Chiang Mai was anything but stressful. I can see why there are a lot of Digital Nomads staying in that small city – It’s hassle free, it offers a lot of cheap amazing food, the internet connection is mostly reliable and fast as well, compared to what we usually get in Indonesia – it’s twice as fast I think. And as a result, we spent way much time focusing on our work, rather than wasting our energy on the bad traffic and any other small things that bother us, every single day.
We don’t need to wait for lunch time just to have our lunch. We eat when we feel hungry. We can easily get several cup of good coffee everyday, instead of those crappy coffee available in the office. In short, we got a much much better quality of life. It’s just… incredible.
So anyway, one of our favourite place to work here in Chiang Mai is in Roll Me Bakery. Susan and Adam from pergidulu.com once took us here, said this place is one of their favourite working space as it is very quiet and it has the right table and stuffs.

If you’re like me and you enjoy walking around the street while eating some light bite snacks before you buy another one, chances are, you’ll love Chiang Mai Night Market as much as I do.
I have to admit that I was a little bit sceptical about the night market as it sounds a lot like Bandung Night Market (sorry, pals! It just doesn’t work for my taste). As far as I remembered, Bandung Night Market has too many people inside, too many garbages as well, and not to mention, crappy food. So I thought, Chiang Mai night market would be just as similar. I couldn’t imagine it being any better.

Sawatde Kha from Chiang Mai!
Just a quick update. It has been a marvellous weeks for us and I can’t believe *well, I REFUSE TO BELIEVE* that we’re going home real soon. *sad*
Chiang Mai is incredibly nice and very suitable for people who works remotely, or as they said, Digital Nomads. True, there are a lot of Digital Nomads out here as there are a lot of cafes serving good coffee with good fair price. You just have to find the one that suits you. You know, the one with the perfect ambience, the perfect height of table, the perfect music, the perfect everything. It’s important. And it’s sooo easy to find one. We ended up having some of our favourites!

I’m pretty sure I’ve never been addicted to a certain food before. But Khao Soi is a rare exception. This very simple dish from Northern Thailand got me right from my very first sip.
If you’re not familiar with this dish, which is normal, you might wanna know what this dish is actually made of before I start with my list of amazing Khao Soi from around Chiang Mai. Well, it’s basically yellow egg noodle, with rich coconut curry soup, some meat (beef, chicken, or pork), and crispy noodle on top. Very rich that you always end up craving for more.
I’ve spent my days eating Khao Soi from place to place during my stay in Chiang Mai and I think it will be cool if I could share my favorite Khao Soi around Chiang Mai. And who knows, maybe you guys have another option I haven’t tried yet? Just let me know!
So here we go. My 9 favourite Khao Soi in Chiang Mai. Enjoy!

told me that we were going to a cat cafe on Saturday, I was like : “REALLY? YAY!”
You know, this made my second time visiting a cat cafe after my first one in Singapore
. And I found this much much more fun than before. The cats here are somehow more active and playful. They’re not acting sleepy or whatsoever. And they are very sensitive to sound too, especially the sound of toys. That makes playing with cats so much fun.

Another quick update, everyone!
So, after about 5 months living in Jambi, I’m finally back on the road again. This time, we decided to stay in Chiang Mai, Thailand and work remotely from here for about a month. ( All thanks to @PergiDulu who didn’t stop convincing us about this whole brilliant idea! ) Lanjutkan membaca “CHIANG MAI : My First Impression”
