Where I’m from, you grab a kebab or pizza on the way home after a night out drinking. In Bangkok, things work a bit different. Here, it’s common to stop by a streetside restaurant and order several dishes before going home.
Food is a central part of Thai culture, and unlike us in the west, Thai people don’t order one plate that belongs to you; they order the same number of dishes as the number of people in the group and share it together.
It’s also about balancing the meal — curry, meat or fish, stir-fried vegetables, and soup is a typical mix that stimulates all of your taste buds with saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and heat.

If you have been to Thailand, you have most likely heard the lovely (and sometimes annoying) sound when entering any 7-Eleven store. How about having the sound as ringtone on your phone? Below you can download an MP3 version ready to ding-dong your phone.
If you don’t know how to add ringtones to your iPhone, check out this step-by-step guide. I myself use the tone as text message notification as you can see in the video below. Love it!

Travel in Thailand often includes several destinations from the islands in the south to the jungle-covered mountains in the north via the metropolitan of Bangkok. Fortunately, you don’t always need to catch a train or bus — flights can be just as cheap, and Thailand has a wide range of options.
It’s time to analyze last year’s traffic on my blog, and I thought it would be fun to share my ten posts that generated the most views. While perhaps not my best blog posts in terms of writing, it’s my most successful posts on Google which is where 90% of all my traffic comes from.
Cheers to all my readers out there! I wish the new year to bring you all happiness.
