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

Finally finding Talat Rod Fai

Finally finding Talat Rod Fai

There are markets all over Bangkok but Talat Rot Fai (also known as the Train Market) is something unique.   I had been meaning to visit the market since I moved to Bangkok but I never managed to reach it at its old location near Chatuchak.  But in the middle of last year it moved to somewhere … Continue reading

Nong Khai and the Mighty Mekong

Nong Khai and the Mighty Mekong

Travel Theme: Rivers Nong Khai is my favourite town in north east Thailand.  It is a gateway in to Laos, it sits on the Mekong River and it feels small and quaint but still with lots of delicious food options. We’ve visited Nong Khai a few times over the past few years and I always feel like it just … Continue reading

Bangkok is a city that glows

Bangkok is a city that glows

Gazing out my 21st floor apartment window every night is one of my favourite things to do.  Watching the lights of the city shine,  the car lights on the highway whizzing by in red and white; the city just feels like it comes to life after dark.  During the day the dust and dirt of a … Continue reading

Fruit Bats of Chachoengsao

Fruit Bats of Chachoengsao

Exploring the provinces surrounding Bangkok is something we really enjoy doing and have been doing increasingly more of.  Partially because we have less time for travelling further afield and because of the easiness of getting to these places.   Within 3 hours drive of Bangkok are some great hidden gems worth visiting. One special place … Continue reading

Food Friday – Moo Manao – Lime Pork Salad!

Food Friday – Moo Manao – Lime Pork Salad!

If you are a fan of lime then you’ll love this salad.  It consists of three basic ingredients  – Pork, Lime and Cabbage, which doesn’t necessarily sound appealing but they combine together to make a mouth watering salad that is simply irresistible.  My taste buds tend towards enjoying sour flavours – I’ll take a ice lemon tea … Continue reading

A secluded spot on Koh Samui

A secluded spot on Koh Samui

When seeking out a location for our 2013 Christmas Holiday you might think we were a little strange that Koh Samui wasn’t our first choice.  Our idea of Samui was an island with too many big fancy resorts, lots of shops and parties and not enough casual relaxing beach space.   We enjoy the simple … 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

Lopburi – a must do Monkey experience!

Lopburi – a must do Monkey experience!

If you love Monkeys then you’ll love Lopburi.  If you like Monkeys but prefer them not to be not climbing all over you or in close proximity then probably you’ll have a lot of fun in Lopburi trying to keep your distance. The old town of Lopburi is almost exclusively run by a large troop … Continue reading
