Smoked Pork Roast

There’s a new butcher shop between my house and work that opened half a year ago. They sell pork only. The quality of meat is better than anywhere else, and the prices are cheaper as well… So I’m in there a couple times a week.

Most Thais do not like the well-marbled cuts that I go after, so there are usually a few choice ones in the displays. The staff will also go get whatever you want from the back, if it’s not on display.

I asked them about a whole pig last week, and they gave me a number to call… I’m toying with the idea of a barbecue pit. Just need to find a steady supply of my favorite lamyai wood.

Exhaustion vs Expiry

We had cool weather during our entire trip back home to Southern California. Coming back to Thailand was like waking up every day in a slow cooker. During the hot days, many cats just lay down on their backs and enjoy a long siesta until evening. Well, maybe not just cats.

Let’s play a game…

Its called the Three Dollar or Less Beer Bonanza (Eastern European Edition):

How many of these beers do you know?

How many can you try while packing suitcases last minute?

GOT Tacoma?

Mad props to this guy… Dickon mos def.

As a side note, these retro color scheme (yellow on black) license plates in CA are super popular, but seem strange to me when put on new cars.

Mytrip.com travel agency review

According to their customer support, mytrip.com will not automatically sit your family together UNLESS you specify it at time of purchase and pay extra for it. They repeated more than once that this is specified in their terms and conditions, in reply to my multiple requests to not have my kids sit next to strangers (again).

Hopefully, this is enough to let you know what kind of operation they are running.

Yes, I am aware that the airline is in charge of final seating decisions. The thing is, we’ve been flying KAL for 30+ years with no issues; we are long time Morning Clam members and I’m even flying on a reward ticket (the mytrip.com tickets are for my wife and kids).

Please be aware of this unethical company and their stupid policies!

What I wouldn’t do to bring the Crown here someday… My brother in law bought a cherry ’64 GTO convertible with a nice crate V8, perfect inside and out, and all I could think was… I miss my Crown.
