Chatuchak Market, Bangkok

Chatuchak is a very popular market in Bangkok. It is the largest in the city and one of the largest in the world. Its website says that the market is divided into 27 sections and there are more than 15,000 booths selling all sort of products from various parts of Thailand. 

We spent a good couple of hours over there and visited only a small part of the market. After getting what we needed to get over there, i.e some pants for Miss K and friends, and some sightseeing on what they have, we decided to leave. It was very hot and crowded. We met a couple that sell clothing and they were extremely nice people that I could not be bothered to bargain. They gave us candies after we paid and wished us a happy new year. Some of the sellers were not as friendly as majority of how Thai people are known for, but they were still quite hospitable.

Homemade Ciabatta

Ciabatta is one of my favorite things to make and to eat. It's a pity that we barely have enough people to eat them at home, but I will continue making whenever I feel like making them.

Nara Dinner, Bangkok

In less than a month after visiting Bangkok, we made it back again with an extra person in the group and we went straight ahead  to Nara after dropping everything we had in the hotel. Miss K suggested Prawn Curry above. A good one indeed, it was delicious. 

We had Pad Thai, of course. Pork and prawn spring rolls too. We had them before and we liked them. 

We also had a fish dish, I could not remember the name of the dish, but it was good as well. Finally, dessert was sticky rice with mango. Happy tummies.

Lunch At Pearl Liang, Taipei

It was our last day in Taipei and we were flying later on in the evening. Our plan was to have lunch at Din Tai Fung in Taipei 101, but when we got there and took our queue number, we were told that the waiting time could be as long as 90 minutes. Outside the restaurant was packed with people. I actually hate eating in a crowded restaurant as much as having to wait long to get a table. I dislike it when the service is compromised because of the crowd. 

Anyway, I immediately remembered a Chinese restaurant at Grand Hyatt where we dined in our previous trip. Great place, great food. I just hoped that they have a table for two. And they did.

We ordered a few dim sum dishes and a plate of vegetable from the menu. Every single dish was well made and delicious. So glad that we had lunch at Pearl Liang instead of crowded Din Tai Fung.
