Tacos and Somtam

Olé, krup!


To be precise, fish tacos and non-papaya tam variant.

To be even more precise, deep-fried Nile tilapia tacos with corn and bird’s eye chili salsa and long fak bean tam.

Tacos always get my inner Mike D going:

He said, “Can I get some?”
I said, you can’t get none!
Had a chance to run
He pulled out his shotgun
He was quick on the draw, I thought I’d be dead
He put the gun to my head and this is what he said

Ping pong anywhere


Well, it looks like I’m going to have to buy this boy a ping pong table (table tennis table?). Luckily, it looks like used ones go for 1/3 the price of a new one here…. but they’re mostly down in Bangkok. Wonder how much shipping will cost.

Fact: There is no space at our house for all of our stuff.

Also: Mina and Max will eventually need their own rooms, which we did not plan for when designing this house (when we didn’t yet have kids). In retrospect: Duh!

BaBQ

My little grillmasters – their basic protein education is already mapped out: Beef, then pork, then fish, and finally, chicken. Although utilizing local food sources means the syllabus can be expanded to rat, snake, bugs, dog, ant eggs, pond scum, mongoose, lizard, etc.
