Ban Khun Mae

Bangkok is a place that I can re-visit over and over again. I am usually happy whenever I get a chance to travel to Bangkok for work. The scrumptious food, hospitality of the people, Thai massage and cheap shopping are the attractions for me.

The short 2 days trip to Bangkok though hectic was fulfilling. We managed to take our guests to eat the sticky rice mango that they were craving for and I can't believe that I've never eaten here before so I am very excited to share this great place here.

Ban Khun Mae is an authentic Thai restaurant that is rated highly on Travel Advisor and Lonely Planet and it's not difficult to understand why. Food is affordable and the menu offers a wide selection of authentic local Thai cuisine. We ordered a variety from pineapple rice to phad thai to phad siew yee to curry, sticky rice and mango, rice crackers etc etc. It was delightful and one of my best meals for the week!

Another great thing about Ban Khun Mae is that it is located right in the heart of Siam Square which is where I love to shop around and quite easy to find so on my next personal trip back to Bangkok, I am taking B.T there. Enough said about the place, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. :)

Healthy chomps at The Met

Appetizers. The avocado dip was fab

Flaxseed crackers

Glow caesar consisting of romaine leaves, avocado, sweet corn, creamy cashew nut and avocado dressing

tuna salad that my colleague had

Fruits for breakfast

More mangoes and goodies

Finale of my brecckie - ricotta pancakes. Heavenly.

My travels to Bangkok somehow wouldn't seem complete without my standard breakfast affair at Glow @ The Metropolitan which I've written about previously here.

Though it's extremely healthy, organic food, it's really good and it makes me feel happy and somewhat 'cleansed'.

For Japan - Nike+ challenge

NIke is calling more than 3 million Nike+ runners around the world to join in the 'All for Japan' Nike+ challenge. For every mile logged, Nike donates $1 to Architecture for Humanity. The target is to raise $200,000 and runners can choose to donate directly to their website (link above).

Nike Japan Running Facebook page has introduced this challenge and as of now, over 900 runners have already ran 2,800km! I've joined the challenge as well and this will be a great motivation to clock in the miles!

To join, click here. You'll need to have a Nike+ account to join. I'm planning to use my Nike+ GPS app on my iPhone and hope that works out!
