Bounding Pulse – Bangkok

My short stay in Bangkok was likened to a bounding pulse; a powerful and strong pulse which is experienced for a short period. The street food was so delicious, it was easy to overeat and suffer serious indigestion. Temple hopping and shopping (at both wholesale and retail levels) can be strenous activities. Ahem, I need … Continue reading

First Night In Bangkok Made A Food Snob Humble

Coming out of Bangkok’s new Suvarnabhumi Airport, we took to the left and traveled an hour or so before arriving at the hotel.

Tony was abroad for some time. His busy schedule also limited my communication with him eversince I last saw him at the Baroque Grill gathering.

Let’s Have A Rendezvous!

You know what? Let’s have a rendezvous! I just realised, this very second as I am preparing this post that they had forgotten to give me my soup. I am going back to get my soup! Wow! You must think me crazy for this uproar over a soup… I could still remember the taste of … Continue reading
