I had such a lovely day hanging out with @thejasonpaul and @emilydyanibarra at the Amphawa Floating Market on Thursday. Lots of food, a magical boat ride and some interesting conversation about how they live a nomadic lifestyle full time...
Living in an apartment for no more than a year for the past ten years has forced me to downsize to owning no more than when I can fit in a car and I thought I had really embraced the minimalist lifestyle. But to live without a home is next level (and inspirational) shit. The most interesting thing is to see how hard Emily and Jason have to work to live in that way - it’s no holiday but life is different every day and by the looks of it it’s worth grafting for. Thanks for the insight guys, hope to meet you on the road again somewhere 😘
A taster of our dinner tonight (and last Thursday) @stevecafeandcuisine.
The restaurant was recommended by the lovely host @baankachitpan where I spent my first night in Bangkok. The restaurant is tucked away in a little alley and not easy to find. However, once you've found the way, you are rewarded with delicious food and a great view across the river.
We ordered a variety of dishes across both nights: pineapple fried rice, pad thai, spicy pork salad, partially cooked prawn, miang khum, yellow crab curry, tom yum soup, tamarind fried prawn, fried catfish and cashew chicken.
I don't usually like mixing sweet and savoury in the same dish, so I was not very keen on ordering the pineapple fried rice, but it turned out to be my favourite. Despite the pineapple, the dish is still savoury and it includes chunks of chicken and prawn, which combine very nicely with the pineapple. Some of the other dishes were a bit too mild for my taste, but this may have been due to the mix of dishes we ordered, with some being very spicy.
