時ヲ止メテ by 東方神起
Bangkok is one my favourite placed to go on holiday. Not only for the super fulfilling shopping experience, but also for the amazing food!
This is basically a picture recap of my breakfast near a well known temple.
#1 Typical set up of condiments – Sugar, Chilli powder and Chilli sauce made of tiny fiery thai chillies and a plate of said chillies and garlic.
#2 Pig Organ soup with Kway Chap (rolled flat rice noodles) with a generous amount of chilli powder.
This is the clear version of said dish, other places may serve you a thicker soup broth which is just as delicious. Personally, I prefer this.
#2 Close up of the Kway chap, which is different compared to the on in Singapore. It’s flatter here, and rolled up.
Which is a great idea as it makes picking up with a spoon really easy!
Those who aren’t great fans of anything related to the insides of animals shouldn’t order this, as they give a very generous amount of pig offals – liver, intestine, stomach and even blood cubes.
But for those who are, you have to try this dish! You would definitely become an instant fan with the first mouthful.
#4 Old School, from the bottle to the cup.
#5 Inside the temple, they set this up for visitors to write names of those who they hold dear onto blocks – as a way to send a message to above to protect them.
I am not sure if I am correct about this actually – may be a poor inference on my part. But I am sure it is still meant to be some form of blessing so I did it anyway.
#6 Rows and rows of colourful lanterns just swaying in the wind. I wonder what they’re for? Perhaps a festival?
Though most go Bangkok to shop, I recommend heading out of the main city and explore. It has so much to offer, so much for you to see!
It would be such a waste to just spend all the time indoors.
