Sneak Preview of Thailand

I am so stuffed with food, I don't know how to start this post! All thanks to JC for stuffing me with dim sum in Ming Court. Love that place so much. Delicious dim sum and its dirt cheap. But that's not what the post is about today.

Behold the Thai Fest! It seems that this event is held every other month in Ipoh Parade. Its like a mini indoor Chatuchak. They sell tonnes of stuff from decorative items to food. Naturally two floggers will pay more attention to the food and that's what we did.

There weren't that many variaties of Thai food but its enough to serve as a sneak preview for me.

First there's of course tomyam. How can you not have tomyam when it comes to Thai food eh?


Then there's fried food like pandan chicken, fried spring rolls, fried prawns in batter and so on.

Thai fried stuff.

This is mango rice. Its glutinous rice with fresh mango on top and fresh coconut milk. Its delicious! The coconut milk is so rich and gives a satisfying tingling sensation with every bite. The combination is just so lovely and filling too.

They're very generous with the mango.

Mmmm yummy.

Just as I thought I've had enough mango to last me a long time to come, I saw mango salad! This I had to try since I've heard so much about it. I ordered a packet.

Mango salad.

I really love the salad. This and mango rice was my dinner. The mango was not too sour, in fact I could hardly taste the sourness of the mango. They put lots of stuff in it like nuts, crispy and plump anchovies, fish sauce, onion and some other unidentifiable pickled stuffs. Delicious!

Really yummy.

At first glance, I thought they were selling "tang yuan" but upon closer inspection revealed that it wasn't. It was the dessert I've read before, water chestnut coated in jelly. Chewy on the outside and crunchy on the inside. Very nice.

I still wonder how they make it.

I've always love handmade ice cream and this coconut ice cream is superb! The texture is very smooth and the flavour is creamy coconut milk. Yummy I tell you.

Here's something interesting. Fried quill eggs. See how they fry it in a special pan?

Pity I wasn't up for it to try the Thai crepe. I was already stuffed beyond my limit (this is not good for my diet...). It looks delicious though. I'll have to try it next time.

I am so excited and can hardly wait for my Bangkok trip! The promise of good food awaits me there!

You know you love me.
