Rainy Season in Bangkok

AS would like to bring your attention to this.

This is a common sight where AS has been staying in Bangkok. Everytime after a downpour, she would see this recurring at many locations on the streets. AS had to bear in mind not to walk too near to this side of the road if she did not wish to get bathed. Bangkok is famous with street vendors and this would mean they had to push their cart to a higher place. Even AS who likes savouring street food wouldn't have the appetite to buy seeing such sights. The water's always dark in colour and it could take days to subside. In fact, she also read in the local daily that water went up to knee level within minutes during heavy down pour at the famous Chatuchak Weekends Market.

Adventure with Thai Food

Did I tell you that I ate double my normal portion whenever I'm up in Bangkok for a business trip?
Lets see what I remembered to snap here.
There are quite a number of pictures here but the ones I tasted definitely exceed these as these are only the ones I remembered to snap before I whack!

Ice cream at Swensens for 49 Baht.

Sights while indulging in my ice cream

Back in apartment- what happened?

Back in apartment - what a disgrace!

Back in apartment - "I'd better wipe the carbon residue away before any one sees it!"

My favourite spot for salad!

Hmm.. sumptious variety!

It's not ice cream but just cream.. neh, not my cup of tea!

Yummy, make your pick!

A breath refreshener supplement at the end of the feast.

Plate: Salad tossed with vineger and olive oil with tuna chunks and cashew nuts,
a guava slice, bacon bits and fruits in mayo.
Soup cup: tom yum koong (Thai spicy prawn soup) and not
forgetting jelly topped with whipped cream.
My 3rd round of piles I gathered.. thus not too much seen here.
The bar where I repeatedly pile up my plate. I am a contented person just by patronizing the salad bar and forgoing the steaks, fish & chips, burgers, and soft drinks.

Lunch hour at the factory's canteen in Bangkok...

Cool colour, agree? It's actually fried vermicelli. I still can't figure out what gives that colour but what tasted weird to me is it's sweet and it's my first time having sweet fried vermicelli. Yucks!
The wrapped item contains steamed glutinous rice with sliced young banana filling. That packet contains salted fried mung beans taken as snacks.

One of the hundreds variance of Thai Salad. This above is made up of tuna, onion,
lemon grass, beans sprout, grated coconut, roasted peanuts, seasoned with some
sauce, syrup, vineger and of course paprik(chilli).

Dinner time at the food court in a shopping mall. Pan fried oyster in omelette with some crunchy beans sprout eaten with chilli sauce. Som Tam with the large chunk of raw cabbage and some other spicy+flavourful plant which I would be happy to go without.
