Postcards from Bangkok

Finally I got a chance to post some of the pics of our BKK trip. If you ask me how it was, All I can say is, "I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THAILAND!!". Well, that says it all! Wish I could narrate everything I've experienced which I know is close to impossible. hehe So let me entice you with pictures instead! I know what you're thinking! F/O/O/D/!


         Ever wondered how all of these taste like? Definitely HEAVENLY! But of course, with a kick of HELL or should I say, SPICE! For those who have no clue, I am a lover of anything spicy. Want to challenge me on a food face-off? you better think twice! haha
         So this is what we ate for dinner on our 2nd night in Bangkok. At first, I couldn't decide on what to eat. Without thinking, I handed myself Deep-Friend Prawns which by the way, tasted sooooo good and just had the right crunch! My mouth's watering as I relive the moment I took a bite! YUM!
         For all my folks who lurve spicy food, you'd better try the Green Curry! Even I was stunned on how S.P.I.C.Y. it was! Mind you, it left me asking for more water! haha To balance the overpowering spice of the Green Curry, I treated myself to a spoonful of Pad Thai, one of Thailand's national dishes. This has been a part of Siam's (former name of Thailand) rich culture and history which traces its roots back in the time of Luang Phibunsongkhram who became their prime minister way back in 1930's and 1940's. He popularized this food mainly to promote Thai centralization and partly to reduce the consumption of rice among Thai locals. Up until now, Pad Thai is considered as their staple food. See how rich Thailand's culture is? Their history has been deeply intertwined in their everyday food----not only that, include their lifestyle, thai silk industry, transportation, clothing, architectural structures and the long list goes on! 


The picture above summarizes how we spent our afternoon in the streets of BKK. 
HOW ON EARTH COULD A PLACE LIKE THIS ENABLE TOURISTS AND LOCALS TO SHOP AND AT THE SAME TIME EAT THEIR HEARTS OUT?
 If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind experience like this, you know where to go!

 What would be your Bangkok street experience without gobbling up these delightful street food? 
Oh yes, it's your turn to dig in!



I am definitely looking forward to go back there! *keeping my fingers crossed* 
I bet you feel the same way now and say, "I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THAILAND too!!" and because of that I will be sending more postcards in my upcoming posts! This is just one of the thread of posts I will be sharing with you! 

I'd like to hear from you this time. :) Why don't you share how your recent vacay was?
