Mango Tree - Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok

1-hour transit in Bangkok? If I don't grab a bite (even though I wasn't so hungry, and to think that I'll have a meal in my next flight anyway), I'll surely regret it.

It's what Singaporeans call "boh kam guan".






Pad thai kung sod

-> It's good, although the price was astronomical. Everything in Suvarnabhumi airport is overpriced. More so than London Heathrow. And also, notice the sprig of shallots? The main difference between pad thai sold in Thailand and outside Thailand is, well, the overseas version usually has the shallots chopped and fried with the noodle, but the Thai version has little to no shallots in the pad thai, but rather, whole sprigs of fresh shallots are served on the side. And yes, you're supposed to take bites of them while you eat your pad thai. The very thought nauseates me.

The green onion on the side is the trad. way of doing it and it is not as in-yr-face as you might imagine. Tropical alliums are not nearly as pungent as their temperate climate cousins. For example, in Thailand it is typical to put 10 cloves of garlic into a single dish. This would be inedible with typical Australian garlic but with Thai garlic it is just fine. Also Thai onions tend to be sweeter rather than hotter. But yr absolutely right about the over-pricing in Suvarnabhumi - there's a normally-priced mini-mart on the mezzanine level - and the staff canteen is reasonable value. It is outside and at the extreme left (when facing the bldg). Enjoying your work -keep it up ...

Yes - I agree with you. Vegetables and spices in tropical countries aren't as strong as in temperate countries. However, I still wouldn't dare taking a bite out of a whole sprig of shallot!

It's weird how I can eat LOTS of shallot when in chopped form, but not when I have to take a bite off a whole sprig.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
