Cooking with Poo

I have been dying to Cook with Poo so when I was trying to think of new things to do with our visiting UK friends it seemed like the ideal opportunity. Run from her home in the slums of Klong Toey in Bangkok, Khun Poo’s cooking school is popular with tourists and locals alike (Poo has even cooked with Jamie Oliver!)….

Tuk Tuk Food Tour, Bangkok

Back in August, we did the Bangkok Food Tours Midnight Food Tour by Tuk Tuk with my sister and her boyfriend. I’d heard good things from BKK friends so was keen to give it a go after the great experience we had with the Taste of Thailand walking food tour which you can read about…

The Hottest Day in 55 Years

After the chaos of the Grand Palace the day before and the prediction of it being the hottest day in Bangkok for 55 years (eeekk!), we thought we’d take my parents penultimate day a bit easier. We took the BTS to Phrom Phong which is only about 20 minutes from us to have a look at…

On Top of the City.

We’ve just landed back in Bangkok after a fab few days on the beautiful island of Koh Chang. There will be pictures of our escapades there but for now I though I’d share with you some pictures of last Saturday night in Bangkok with the parents; their first experience of a sky bar and needless to…

Review ~ Taste of Thailand Food Tour

On Friday we took my parents on the Taste of Thailand food tour. It was a first for us too and after hearing great reviews and seeing all the pictures on their Facebook page we were excited! We thought it would be a great way to introduce Mum and Dad to the national cuisine as…

Travels of a Food Addict.

My parents are here for their first visit to Bangkok. After a stress free flight and numerous films later they landed to the heat and chaos in our new home city. Wednesday evening we took it easy and went to Red & Whites near our apartment for some food. My mother has suggested I rename…

A Thai birthday meal.

Last night we were lucky enough to have some proper home cooked Thai food. Our lovely maid surprised me yesterday with a huge Tupperware full of chicken and cashew nuts (Gai Phad Med Mamuang) and another of sticky rice. She had cooked for me as a birthday present, how amazing is that! I didn’t think I…

A dash of culture…

Yesterday, a friend and I visited Wat Arun, a temple on the Choa Phraya river. We took the BTS to the river and the jumped on a boat. Entry to the temple is just 50THB (£1). Wat Arun is an incredible sight with a 266ft central ‘prang’ (tower) that has steep steps that represent the…

Propa Street Food.

We had a really busy day today. We were at Ikea as it opened to get me a new pillow; my ear just couldn’t take any more of the current brick I’ve been sleeping on. We then popped home for some air con and to catch up on last weeks ‘Last Tango in Halifax‘, and…
