FLASHBACK: Thailand ~ Food and Discretion

The very first attempt to eat rice was a disaster. We were so hungry from the plane ride, the 6-hour wait in the airport, the train travel and all. We then found a small table where random foods were being sold. Saw a nice looking set of rice, chicken and  few leaves. We were so excited but we have to defer eating until we find the inn. It was such a spicy lunch for both of us.

Because of that, we avoided experimenting an ended up buying noodles. But it’s still spicy.

 

 

 

This was after we joined the Songkran Festival.

Pad Thai and Fried Rice!

Must try!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think it’s just a matter of finding the right ones and being with the right people and places and find the best food to try.

FLASHBACK: Thailand 2015 -Songkran Festival

Festivals are fun. It can be anything! From mascots to water splashing, to fireworks and everything else! 

But this year was different. Thailand celebrates New Year every April. And this 2015, I was part of this huge gathering. They call it Songkran Festival. We chose to stay in Silom Road. The event goes for three days and there are 2 main roads you can celebrate this at a particular time. Although, you’ll see almost any one point their water guns at you. Too bad, you can’t escape. You must be a good sport! 

And the best thing is meeting people whom you can share this event with.

Philippines*Finland*Germany*Bangladesh

Awesome people and adventure!

Me and my friend enjoying the water drops from the roof!

But it doesn’t end so early. People will still be on the streets trying to put powder on your face and spray water once more. Although it should end at 10PM, some decided not to end it as yet.You have to be prepared –all the time. Make sure you have a mini plastic bag to protect your stuff.

Meanwhile..Here’s once greeting from one of the restaurants along the road.

HAPPY SONGKRAN 2015!!
