I've been getting a lot of exercise in Thai shopping centres recently; we take my son there to play in the kids areas. I am so glad the rainy season is now over and we can venture outdoors again. Your balcony and the sunset do seem made for each other.
Hi Paul, I'm certain I'm not the only one over in the mall doing the same ;)and a map of the complex would sure come in handy.By the way, I DON'T LIKE PINK!
Different looking tucker in your neck of the woods, not the fare I'm used to but I could learn. My brother who was in the S E Asia area in the 1950s went with a couple of fellow soldiers for dinner at an officers residence.The main course was duck but he said the bones did not look like Daffy or Donalds so he asked if it was quack quack duck and was told no it was bow wow duck.suppose ot would be OK if you paid attention to what you were swallowing and kept a lookout for bits of collar--small buckles and I.D. tags and the like.

We haven't struck dog on any menus here, but it's certainly common in Vietnam. Some of the menus there read like a promo for a zoo.One of the other bloggers (Martyn) wrote about the 'bucket truck man' who swaps plastic ware for dogs in the rural areas here. Then, takes them across the border to sell for the dinner table.
Great post but I still don't know what Pandan Custard is ;-)BTW the eggs look like Quail eggs which usually sell at 2 Baht each here.
Hi Mike, I've since discovered (thanks Dad) that home made Pandan Custard consists of mainly coconut cream, eggs, sugar and skrewpine????...and obviously Pandan ;) I have no idea what would/could be in a commercially made custard, but it makes up a whopping 40% of the bun! Very low fat, I'm sure!I haven't tried the quail eggs fried, but will.
I should have gotten in touch when I was in Chiang Mai--I'm not sure what I was thinking! Next time...
Megan, no problem. You've left just as Loy Krathong starts, but I'm sure you'll be getting better night's sleep than I will for the next few days...bang...bang...bang (fireworks)
As someone who has ordered "fried piss" in a restaurant and presented a lady with a missing room key while announcing, "I'm so sorry, here's your cat," I can sooo relate to your language travails. Looks like you're both happy and having a great time, though...
