Northern Thailand pics… Finally!

These have taken us a while to post, but they don’t make it easy to blog in China so just be happy they’re here!

This little selection is from Northern Thailand where we slept in the woods, made Tea with a bamboo kettle and ate some spicy spicy food. Happy days.

Click the pics!

Green Tea, with a sweet Thai twist

 

iced green tea, weekend market

iced green tea, weekend market

Location: Weekend Market, Bangkok, Thailand. At a wee food and drink stall

Date/Time: 5th December 2009

Variety of Tea: Iced Green Tea. It’s Matcha Green Tea (Japanese and very healthy). Then it’s mixed with a table spoon of sugar, two of evaporated milk, one of condensed milk and lots of ice.

Cost: 30 Baht (about 55p)

Service: Fast as a fast person making tea quickly.

Taste: A lot like a milk shake. Pretty sweet. Tastier than plain Matcha Green Tea but that may be due to the sweetness

Ambiance: Sunny day, great market, full of locals. Adam had just bought a sweet Bruce Lee t-shirt so the tea was the icing on the cake!

Shadam rating: 8/10. Really healthy but not really healthy all at the same time. One of life’s lovely little dilemmas

So you think it’s 2010?

 

Future water!

Future water!

Well you’d be almost totally correct, but not quite…

You see, according to this bottle of water we bought at a market, it’s also the year 2553.

We couldn’t get the whole story, because we don’t speak Thai, but it’s clearly something to do with Worm Holes and the Space Time Continuum and stuff.

We’re both really excited about seeing the future. Will it be a “Mad Max” and “Terminator” style war zone or more peaceful like “Back to the Future 2” and “Minority Report”? Adam has this wild theory about Ants rising up to rule the world but that probably won’t have happened by 2553.

Anyway, we’ll let you know when we’ve seen it.

Thai Tea – Try it… once

 

Thai Milky Tea with Tamarind, really it is

Thai Milky Tea with Tamarind, really it is

Location: Weekend Market, Bangkok, Thailand. At a wee food and drink stall

Date/Time: 5th December 2009

Variety of Tea: Thai Tea. It’s milky tea mixed with ground Tamarind seed which makes it go a weird orange colour. And of course it has a layer of condensed milk!

Cost: 20 Baht (about 40p)

Service: Fast, efficient, not so friendly but it was a busy market so that’s fair enough

Taste: Strange, sweet, odd, savory, interesting, different, unique

Ambiance: Sunny day, great market, full of locals. Pretty good

Shadam rating: 2/10. You have to try the local brew but we won’t be having a second cup!

*This Tea review is dedicated to our friend Craig Dunn, who we still love even though, while in Thailand, he committed the unforgivable sin of forgetting about a cup of tea and not drinking it.
