Good Food in Bangkok

Date: Oct 31, 2013

I stayed beside the river. In this Royal Orchid Hotel.

There is usually a small pier just behind the hotel where you can hop on to reach the other side of the river.

It cost about 3.50 Baht to hop on to this boat that run across the river. Cheap cheap!

This is the opposite side.

There is this local market street. Just beside that building.

Simply walk inside until the first alley that you can turn right.

Once you turn right, a few steps later, this local restaurant will be in sight.

It is the only restaurant within sight. It looks like proper food. It served Ishan (Northern Thai) food.

This is Kor Moo Yang. The BBQ grill pork neck meat.

The small little chilli dip beside it is a killer.

So we order the 2nd plate which is a bit more fatty meat.

The chicken is very crispy and the meat are tender inside. We also order 2 plates. We got three person nia.

This is home made beverages. Green wheat, ribena, lemon grass. We ordered 5 bottles of such drinks.

This is the basil pork dish.

Have you try Tom Yum Pork Rib soup? Taste very good! I like.

We also have a plate of seafood salad and mango salad.

This is our second plate fried chicken.

The sotong here is soft. Very nice.

Three people, 5 bottles drinks, 8 dishes of fantastic Ishan food, a plate of rice and a packet of glutinous rice.

Guess how much?

499 Baht nia!

Later that night, near Ekamai Heatlh Land massage, we ate here. Seems like a very famous seafood restaurant for Japanese. In our seating section out of 6 tables served are all Japanese.

Some how this is a very chewy oysters. Why chewy I don't know. But it is fresh and good!

And you eat the oysters with this. Put every thing on it and scope and eat!

Yum Sam Kung, mixes three crispy stuff in a salad.

The fish cakes.

This is what the chewy fresh oysters looks like after you apply everything on it. Taste really good!

One big grill fish.

Grill chickens. But a bit tough meat. Not soft.

Huge prawns.

Some dips with veggies, Kway Tew soup, salads and a tender beef steak. 4 people, and cost 4500 Baht like that. Wow! Expensive meal for a 4 person.

But food really nice.

Don't ask me how to go... I only know we took subway, change to BTS to Tong Lo. And take a cab short distance ride and reach here. I follow nia.

I know it is also very near to Ekamai health land massage. Where you cross the road and take a cab, very short distance you teach the famous massage place.

Bangkok Boat Service

Date: Oct 30, 2013

I don't like the traffic jam in Bangkok.

I don't like the hotel venue of Capacity Asia. It's beside the Chao Phraya river, but it is also in a location that is not near to every thing, like MRT/BTS station, shopping centers, etc.

Every time you need to go somewhere, you will be sure to stuck in the jam for a long while.

This trip, I learned to take the Chao Phraya Express boat service.

It is cheap and very convenient. It is fast and only cost 15 Baht nia.

This is the boat with orange flag. This is the boat we are taking.

Actually 15Baht is not cheap comparing BTS fare. But it is fast and convenient.

A conductor will sell you tickets like this.

So when you reach a stop, the guy will whistle a few time and the boat will bump to the side and passenger can be alighted.

You can stand there if you want but hmmm... A bit dangerous considering the water is high right and a bit rush today.

We waited for the boat for 10min, and the ride takes about 6-7min for 2 stops. And we arrived at Sathorn Pier. The BTS station is just directly above this sign.

Then you take the BTS to any where you like.

This boat ride appears to be very popular to both Thai and tourists.

So next time don't forget to consider this if you are really rushing for time and need to go somewhere without traffic jam.

Try it next time when you are in Bangkok.

Drawings With Your Own Mind

Date:  Oct 27, 2013

Young Kay Kay always has his own unique personality.  

No matter in class or at home, he has very strong character.  Sometimes very stubborn but some times very innovative.

Yesterday, we have great time creating Mr. Pumpkins.

IMG 0208

Today, as usual, we go to the Art Boot Camp class.

Today, the topic is scarecrow.  So, the art teacher show a sample of the drawing from another kid.  The kids suppose to follow and draw a scarecrow.

IMG 0272

Let’s check out What has Kay Kay drew.

Hmmm… Two pumpkins beside the scarecrow.

Wow.  I think he told the teacher he wanted to draw two pumpkins man there.

IMG 0269

So, he produced this nice drawings and earn another space in the living room wall.

Well done Kay Kay.  I love your pumpkins.  And I am sure the Mr. Pumpkins will be glad to learn that they have a place in your mind, in your drawings.  Great job!

IMG 0271

The main thing of learning art is to learn how to express your thoughts.

It is not about learning techniques and skills.

Of course those are important too.

But the key idea is to express what you thinking and put it on the drawings.

I took a glance and see other people drawings who follow exactly the “sample drawings”.

Even his brother, most of the time also following the sample drawings.

But Kay is different in a way that he draw his own things.

He bo-chap.

He just wanted to draw.

Just like his sun, is dark red.  Not yellow.  He says he likes it that way.  Wow.  HaHaHaHa.

Quite a cool kid.

Paper Cutting:小分子水真的能包治百病吗?

Tag:   Small Molecule Water / Diamond Water

There is also some English version of readings about Alkaline water too.  As Alkaline water also break the molecules into smaller.

另外一个不得不说的因素是磁场。磁场对水具有特定的作用这是很早就被发现的物理现象,但是分子层面的原理并无明确解释,有一种说法认为是水分子因为磁场能而解离为“小分子水”,但科学界支持这一观点的并不多,因为磁场能远小于氢键的键能,不足以将液态水维持在高势能的“小分子水”状态。磁化水可以降低锅炉的结垢作用,这一点已经被工业上应用,并且国外磁化技术作为生活用水的净化技术已经有了二十多年历史,尤以奥地利的约翰格兰德(Johann Grander)的技术出名,不过与国内宣传磁化水可以治疗疑难杂症不同,国外对磁化水更多的宣传是洁净。至于磁化水是不是真的那么神奇,这里就不再多探讨了。

Every year we do this.  

The kids remembered their previous version of Mr. Pumpkin.

Halloween is always an Ang Moh thingy.

The ghost are not as scary as the Chinese Ghost month.

Although we are in Asia, we also have fun celebrating it.

The pumpkin may be a bit expensive here.

But think about the fun of craving it.

Think about the fun of taking photos with it.

Of course, with the candles in it.

It is a sure fun things for kids.  

So, go out and buy one pumpkin and start making your own Mr. Pumpkin.

IMG 0194

Jay Jay loves his Mr. Pumpkin.

IMG 0195

Even my mother in law likes it.  It is beautiful.

IMG 0199

Koko, don’t squeeze me!

It’s a nice picture.

IMG 0205

No need to go out and celebrate Halloween.  1 or 2 pumpkin with 1-2 hours does the job.

Here is a nice family photo you can take.

Wow… I didn’t know my kids’ painting wall can be so nice in the photos. 

IMG 0210

You see, I told you, you can get very nice family photos with Mr. Pumpkins.

IMG 0213

Good night Mr. Pumpkins.  Thanks for brining laughter and fun to my family.

Mr. Pumpkin A:  Hey B, do you think we are alone here?

Mr. Pumpkin B:  I think we are...

Mr. Pumpkin A:  But why I feel so strange, it is like there are something behind me...

Mr. Pumpkin B:  come to thing about it… I feel cold too...

Mr. Pumpkin A & Mr. Pumpkin B slowly turn their head...
