Sweet Thai Cookies

I believe every countries have long history as like their cuisine. Likewise Thai cuisine has been inherited through all ages with well represent to culture and refinement. As you may know “Tom Yum Goong”, one of Thai soups which is very popular for all visitors by its taste spicy and sour. And because of Thai food is almost hot, why having a sweet tooth is needed after meal.

I’m Thai, but never thought that making Thai dessert is easy. It is not complicated but elaborately.

Today I tried one menu which quite easy and less ingredients. Its name “Khanom Kleep Lamduan” a kind of sweet Thai cookies. The name are called because of its resemblance to Thai flower; ivory-colored, sweet fragrance and unique three-petal design.

Found and Lost in Orchid Pot

Last two weeks, actually like almost everyday, I walked around my house to see growing of orchids. But this time my eyes were attracted to something in one of orchid pots.

Two eggs were there. Absolutely, should be bird eggs! Yet to know what kind of bird was. I have sneaked looking them since at the birth date. Helped their parents by putting a small basket of worms around the nest, and kept everyday shots of these living things.

Such is life and so amazing. Let’s see and guess what the bird is..

Happy birthday!

2nd day..

Their parents were very fast, I was trying to take nice family shots but never.

Feed me pleassse!

Always sleep

See how fast they were growing up! The worms I gave them were use up everyday.

A week of age

Open your eyes please!

Hello world ~

So, do you know what kind of bird? I think they are a type of Bulbul.

One of them had been trying to fly himself and lost. I just prayed he could fly away, was not a dinner for greedy cats around there. Another, I saw she learned to fly from her parents in a day later.

Well, don’t ask me how to know them male or female… 😛

Miracle of Faith

Superstition has been with human being since an old day. Somehow become in a strange amulet with magic involved, either black and white. In Thailand and neighbors, many people live on this faith almost everywhere. Some large trees, bow of boats, or medallions are held in particular respect because believe of spirit or ghost living inside. Even a golden baby I am talking about, or called ‘Kuman Thong’.

Kuman Thong is made from element of clay from cemeteries and recited incantations over by monk. Inside spirit, sometimes boy or girl, is believable an un-born child. Anyone who owns Kuman Thong will be his/her mom or dad, and your mystical child will protect and keep you safe from approaching danger, offer you well-being of lucky if you ask for.

If you are looking for any proof of this superstition, I can say is yet! Likely fortune tellers get lots business everywhere. For people, no matter to wonder or not  is it real, they just want only strong power on their faith with everyday living happy is definitely amazed their life.
