In Remembrance of my beloved King

It was the darkest night.

There was no sunlight. 

We could feel the coldness inside.

You were gone.

Although years have passed you are always in my heart.

Deepest in my soul you are there. 

You are the King we call “father” and will always be our beloved father.

You told us not to cry, wipe the tears and smile.

Today we are here, remind ourselves what you cheer. 

And we smile, we are strong.

In Remembrance of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej

Street Food in BKK

I’ve been far away from my homeland more than a decade and the thing which makes me homesick every single time is the street food in Bangkok.

Wherever you are and whenever you are hungry, all street food is available there almost 24 hours (some open at daytime, some at night time). Although you wake up at midnight, there is also has nighttime restaurants open until sunrise.

What food you can find in Bangkok? It’s various I can say. But if you don’t mind to have experiences with street food, you should try.

Street food is easy to find all over places in Bangkok and nearby area. You can also try in Silom Area or China Town (I will write about China Town in Bangkok later). Various type of food i.e. Chinese, Thai traditional food & sweet, Indochina food or contemporary food.

 

My recent visit to Thailand, I went to Suan Lumpini (opposite the Red Cross Building) to have some street food. If you want to have an original taste of Thai food, you should eat in Thailand.

I started my breakfast with Indochina pan-fried eggs with topping, seasoned whichever sauce you prefer. Followed with Roti with sweet condensed milk served with a cold drink.

 

In the evening I had my dinner in Pathum Thani Province. They are famous in noodle dishes. I picked egg noodle with red BBQ pork, my aunt went with red BBQ pork with rice. The red BBQ pork with rice is a bit sweet because it is topped with sweet sauce and serves with hot squad soup.

 

About the sweet, there is also plenty of Thai traditional desserts.

Tong Yord (Round Egg York Tart)

Egg yolk, sugar and flower water are boiled in sugar syrup and formed into round balls to create this sugar lover sweet.

Foi Tong (Shredded Egg Yolk Tart)

It’s basically the same ingredients used in two Thai desserts above; Egg yolks and sugar are boiled in sweet syrup and then formed into hairlike shapes.
