    A culinary melting pot

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 28/08/2016

    » Think of a favourite dish and then consider the various ingredients that come together to make it. You'll see that they are drawn from many different sources, some of them borrowed from other culinary traditions. One good example is pad Thai. Almost everything that goes into it is Chinese, from the small-gauge rice noodles to the tofu, beansprouts, hua chai po (Chinese turnip), Chinese leeks, dried shrimp, peanuts and even the duck eggs (in the past, ducks in Thailand were raised by Chinese). In terms of its ingredients, this familiar dish is Chinese from top to bottom, although whether it was a Thai or a Chinese cook who first prepared it, I don't know.

    » The clock on the wall turned 10am. The ambience around the student centre building at a Nairobi university was dormant and calm, except a training kitchen where groups of young people, all wearing aprons and caps, busily made a dish. Some measured ingredients while their buddies read recipes out loud; others putt meat into the pot. The scene was almost chaotic with sounds of utensils clanking and bite-sized meat sizzling on frying pans.

    Walking in a valley

    Life, Published on 17/01/2019

    » When it comes to nature trails on Doi Inthanon, the country's highest mountain in Chiang Mai's Chom Thong district, many will be familiar with Ang Ka Luang on the mountain peak as well as Kiew Mae Pan at KM42 on the road leading to Doi Inthanon. As a matter of fact, another interesting nature trail in the area was opened to the public about 10 years ago with the collaboration of local villagers and Doi Inthanon National Park. However, it is not as popular as the two other routes, famous for the sea of mist over evergreen forests and grass fields.

    Thai TV not yet destined for global love

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 24/03/2018

    » The soap series Bupphaesannivas (Love Destiny) is all the rage these days in Thailand. I enjoy some parts of it, especially one memorable episode a few weeks back when the female lead, a beautiful vixen in 17th century Ayutthaya, displays her vituperative talent by shouting at her servant, "Shut up or I'll smack your mouth with my piss pot." Neither did we see the piss nor the pot, but we get the picture. There's even a YouTube clip of that.
