It’s Food Time – 7-Eleven’s Popcorn!

It’s Food Time – 7-Eleven’s Popcorn!

In celebration of the up coming opening of a new 7-eleven store in my neighbourhood, this post is about one special product you can only get at a 7-eleven. The absence of a 7-eleven store has been one of the disappointing things about living in On Nut.  By absence I mean that to get to … Continue reading

Monday Madness – The Long Bangkok Winter!

Monday Madness – The Long Bangkok Winter!

Over the last couple of days I’ve finally realized that Bangkok is departing it’s long cool winter and I’m a little annoyed.   I’m annoyed because I’m no longer used to 31 degree heat.  Now I’m sweating as I walk down the street, I feel hot all the time and I just want to hide in … Continue reading

Handmade lollipops in Bangsaen

Handmade lollipops in Bangsaen

Imagine palm trees, lapping waves, sand between you toes and eating a whole lot of seafood, with that image you have Bang Saen Beach.  We’ve written about Bang Saen before but what we forgot to mention was the delicious hand crafted lollipops you can find there. Located in a not so ideal place, next to … Continue reading
