Taste of the Week: Congee

Sawasdee torn chao (good morning) people!

After three entries of breakfast-friendly items, this week’s taste of the week still focuses on a morning treat.

No joke!

Well, actually there’s joke.

“Joke” is Thai for congee, the seasoned porridge made from rice.

We like to eat this warm, soupy and easy to swallow dish for its comforting quality and the fact that it’s fulfilling but doesn’t leave you feeling heavy. That makes it perfect for either breakfast or dinner.

Local Randezvous: Where to countdown in Bangkok

Sawasdee torn chao (good morning) all!

New year is coming close. And there’s that very night before it you’d want to make the most out of the last bit before bidding this year a farewell. Of course, to welcome a brighter new year as well.

Words you’d want to know today must simply be “pee-mai”, Thai for new year.

Be sure to pronounce the first syllable with the P sound you do in spree, spa and spy. (So it’s not the same as pee pee.)

And to greet someone happy New Year, it’s as easy as…

Christmas Events!

Sawaddee torn chao (good morning) all!

It’s that time of the year when joyful spirits are in the air with people celebrating the festive season.

Though Thailand is not a Christian country, Bangkok’s melting pot of diverse cultures makes Christmas vibes in this town not at all a stranger.

Here we made a little guide for you to get around and enjoy Christmas in Bangkok whether you just want to go get the atmosphere or party it off.

Follow the lights

You can’t deny that Christmas decorations have become attractions of the month. What else should we take selfies with when there are large cool Christmas trees all around? The best spot for wandering around in festive breeze is around Siam area. And good news is we’re located in the area.

Anyone down for a walking tour?

Starting from the hostel, you can find some lit-ups from the opposite MBK Center. Take skywalk through to Siam Paragon drop by for some photos in front of the popular mall and use the walkway there to get to the other end of BTS Siam station.

Walk on to Central World and here you are. The mother of all Christmas trees in Bangkok. Expect to see the big crowd in the front courtyard as well as beer parks you can chill out a bit. If you still don’t want to call it a day, make a turn to Ratchadamri Road and there’ll still be plenty of hotels and plaza lights to catch.

Make it a party night!

Christmas has it all for party animals. Here are a few!

Local Rendezvous: Pop-up Markets

Sawasdee torn chao all!

Though it’s not really cold here in winter, ‘tis a chilling season again when you won’t get soaked by sweat (too fast) walking around.

And that makes pop-up markets bloom across the town.

Unlike London, where there are regular markets here and there basically just everyday, Bangkok’s full of seasonal pop-ups (though some might recur).
