This is gonna be an odd posting, since there won’t be much reviews involve … particularly since most of the food found here are really, really good !

I was at Plaza Damas last Sunday (6th May 2007) with my family and discovered that the Siam Fair was ongoing there. I’ve never really been to one, despite passing by a lot …. all the time. I remember seeing it in Amcorp Mall a couple of months back, but did not stop to look at it. I guess I took it for granted that these events are here all the time.

But this time round, I actually visited the booths individually and found that they sell very interesting stuffs. There were clothings .. those that is only available in Thailand, is now suddenly available here in Malaysia. They also sell crockeries, decorative stuffs … exotic costume jeweleries and many many other stuffs. Stuffs you only find in streets of Phuket or Bangkok. You’ll also find those folks serving you are all authentic Thai nationals …either that or they speak really lousy english with really good Thai accent. You know … the one that goes … veli chhhipp.. veli chhhipp.. you wann masshaage… oni thhenn linggitttt…. (english : very cheap, very cheap, you want massage? Only ten ringgit)

But I think the motherload of it was the food. I see tomyam … of course ! There’s tomyam noodles, curry laksas … local Thai desserts such as Mango in Sticky Rice (I learned abt this dessert from Basil, my recent review). So how exactly is the food here, you might ask….

Like I said earlier, generally the food found here are exceptionally delicious .. to my standard, that is …. ! The tomyam …. yum, yum … spicy …delicious, appetizing … the curry … thick and milky … the mangoes are … mouth-watering … the sticky rice with coconut milk is just so ever soft … it slides down your throat, just like that. And that ever so crunchy fried prawns … oooooh … wish I had a beer to down it with those prawns … dipped in that special chili sauce. Words can’t decribe much more of what I have experienced … other than to show it to you.

But let it be my word of advice to you … the travelling Thai fellows will be around until 22/5/2007 only. And they open daily from 10:30am to 9:30pm …. so

khhamm fhhasst fhhasst, veli fhhasst no mor …
(come fast fast, very fast no more)

    I always missed the Siam/Thai Fair as there’s hardly any ads about it here. When I got the chance to go, I usually grab those peanuts in tall cylinder. Guess next time I shall slow down my pace to taste the food there 🙂

    Daniel, thanks for dropping by. You’re doing ok ?

    Lyrical Lemongrass, you must not miss this for the world !

    tankiasu, we’re just expressing ourselves. Photo quality doesn’t matter .. as long as it meant something.

    jason aka ipohwav3, bro … the peanuts are called Koh-Kae I think. I love it oo. I have 2 cans in front of me now.

    Jason, I think these folks travel around. You might miss the Plaza Damas one but who knows they might be in another shopping mall.

    BSG, would love to contribute if there’s one ….

    You were talking about all kinds of things. The pay is probably not that good, and the job security is not too good. But how many other jobs can you say youd be willing to die for :)….

    Hot english girls with pink hair are better though. Brunn is correct….
