Thai Fusion PennE

It is actually an easy yet delicious dish for me to eat whenever I feel lazy: please forget the fact that I am naturally lazy to cook but my passion for food inspire me, at least, to read a food blogs or watch the cooking shows. As per my other half, I am always quiet, and don’t even make a move when I watch those shows or read the blogs. How can I resist the delicious food, huh?

I cook penne according to the package direction and drain them. One thing I learn from Rachel Ray show is that “never ever rinse the cooked pasta under the cold water”, so I didn’t. Then I put a little bit of olive oil or butter (depending on what I have in my pantry) to the cooked penne to remain slippery. 

Heat the oil and sauté the shrimps and ground chicken and set aside. Then add the chopped shallots, grated garlic, and grinded chili until it is lightly brown. Add the long peas and sauté them for about 2-3 minutes according to your preference. For the taste, I only use oyster sauce, light soy sauce, fish sauce.  Finally toss the holy basil, and stir the cooked shrimps and chicken and penne in the pan. That’s it, my version of Thai fusion penne!

BIFF & BIL 2011 - MyanmaR

On this occasion, I love to share the following designs presenting @ BIFF, BIL 2011 ASEAN Integration, designed by Myanmar designers. It is no doubt their color of choice is violet or lavender, which I love by the way. At one corner, I can’t help but noticing the fabric from Myanmar, selling one longyi in Batik design only for 100 Bahts, which I think a great find:  good quality and not smelly at all. I was indecisive about buying or not buying them that time: it sounds stupid because I buy them here and give my mom and my mom in law to wear them at home in Myanmar, right? Anyway, I couldn’t resist the urge and bought 4 pieces. That being disclosed, now I am officially stupid, lol!!!

BIFF & BIL 2011 - KiD

I am simply posting the pictures taken from the Bangkok International Fashion Fair and Bangkok International Leather Fair 2011 at Impact Challenger 2-3, Muang Thong Thani, Nonthaburi Province, Thailand. The event was held on 20-24 April but it was open to public on 23-24 April 2011. Too bad that I was late yesterday; I missed the show from our country mates’ designers. Anyway, I love watching both cute little baby models and tall street chic models from Bluenose Monster.

This daytrip to Ayudhaya was not strictly the first one though it may seems to be it. It was, actually, the first one in a few years. Perhaps I should be more excited going there that time but the very hot temperature changed my mood.  Just a single segment of clouds were there to give me the shelter from the shining sun. Yes, I am complaining about the weather and it has nothing to do with those average pictures. Anyway, I met those little kids at different temple and I had a good time watching them talk, and act like their own age.

Yangon Zoo

That day, a large coffee cup was placed in front of me, and a small bowl of soup was placed in front of my youngest nephew. I leaned back in the chair and listened to what he had to say: the usual words of how much he likes the snacks, the shoes, and shirts I bought for him. I continued to listen his chitchat and found out he had never been to the zoo. So I ended my conversation by saying “I will bring you to the zoo tomorrow”, and I kept that promise. The zoo entrance fee is 500 Kyats per person, and we have to pay100 Kyats for the camera and 300 Kyats for the video camera. Overall, I had a blast listening to what he had to say that whole day like “TT this, TT that” and imitating the various animals voice.  For lunch, we kept our option open and finally chose to eat the not-so-great chicken Biryani with tea and we left the zoo around 2:30 p.m. Of course, his mom had to tell him white lies saying it is closed and we all have to leave now. It is a shame though we couldn’t keep up our spirits with his level.

Prommitr Film Studio - Food

There is no excuse for posting the following pictures, which I took from the market at Prommitr Film Studio. The coconut juice was sweet, the fruits were super fresh and inexpensive, the crispy fried bananas and deep fried chicken wings were tasty – those are my exact thoughts when I look back the day we went to the market at the studio. While the food is simple and tasty, those who need more fuel to keep their bodies running might want to try papaya salad with deep fried pork, rice noodle with fish soup or different noodle soups are available there too.
