It was a good thing that, instead of dunking us in water, the good folks of Rama V, used a pandan leaf, soaked in scented water, to gently bestow some good luck sprinkles on our shoulders. Otherwise, we would have been thoroughly soaked, as this was Thai Songkran, the mother of all water festivals. The […]

Songkran @ Erawan

I’m glad I was not in Thailand for Songkran. Armed with water guns, the weekend of Songkran, is a great excuse Thai folks to shoot girls and boys and tourists alike with water. Of course, the boys, girls and tourists shoot back. Needless to say, this is the country’s most popular festival, which runs every […]

Fa-Ying great cocktails and Sandwiches!

Not just great.. but Bloody Fa-Ying Great Cocktails and Sandwiches at Fa-Ying, by Rama V! Don’t ask the chef here, what sorcery he worked over the kitchen. Just ask him to weave his magic again on one of the crusty ciabatta sandwiches, and trust me, with meats flavoured the old-fashioned Thai way, you’ll be begging […]

Fa Ying by Rama V @ Paradigm Mall

Fa Ying by Rama V, is the latest addition to Paradigm Mall, PJ. The name which means celestial princess in Thai, is a perfect match for this contemporary Thai restaurant with a feminine touch. Maybe it’s the striking trademark fuchsia pink seats against stark black deco that pushes all the right buttons (and I do […]

It shapes religious observances, festivals, customs, cuisine and celebrations. The main food in Thailand is of course rice. Everyone eats it. But we can’t really eat rice alone so we have […]

Erawan

The newly refurbished Erawan looks terrific. Two shiny thai guardian angels painted in gold and framed in red, greet patrons who visit this cosy Thai restaurant. With the renovations, Erawan now lets in a lot more natural light, looks spacious and expansive. I really love the latest chi-chi additions to the restaurant – a rust […]

Rama V Weekend Lunch à la carte Buffet

The Rama V Weekend Lunch á la carte Buffet is such a steal! It’s a eat and drink all you can buffet menu, and believe me, the wine and food is terrific, considering the fact that you’re only paying RM68.90++ and for top quality Thai cuisine as well. The wine, and beer are free flow […]
