Thai Spicy Frog

I now know why Orientals have a fancy for frogs -- because it tastes that damn good! And the Thai cooks have a brilliant method of adding spice to this dish, which other people would cringe at the thought of savoring. Picture this -- the frog gets diced into small pieces and gets fried in chillies and other herbs to create a fiery flavor; the chef then steps out on to the road and sets up his stove and pan; his assistant stands in attendance on the other side of the road. The chef then stirs up a delightful mix of herbs on the roadside and when done, in one elegant swish, tosses the herbs across to the assistant who completes a catch Jonty Rhodes would be proud of! Wow! That's enough to make anyones mouth water...


So yes, we did have the Thai spicy frog preparation yesterday and also cut our way through a splendid Thai snapper and Amrita waded through squids and steamed rice.

As the evening wore on, we finally mustered courage to walk into one of the Go-Go bars and witness a couple of Muay Thai matches. The sport is quite physical though it does seem to me as if the fights are fixed. If you're short of cash, try being as invisible as you can; for all you know, the winner of the match may just come asking you for a token of appreciation ($$$). The bars arent so bad after all. You can always take your family and walk in. No one will bother you. Yes the girls are quite vocal in inviting foreigners and that is quite a turn off for many families. But trust me, this is one of the best and cheapest forms of local entertainment. A must do, if in Pattaya; especially if you're single...

Whatever...

When things aint perfect usually everyone has a piece of advice... As it turns out people (including me) are so gung ho about what they feel is the right idea that they never wish to play the devil's advocate and look at the possible chances of failure or the risks attached.

Often all our grand plans come to nought... and we're left wondering where we went wrong!! Play the devil's advocate mate!!!! Thats all I have to say about that!

Our miseries

Filmstars can have so much fun... I wish I have that kind of a life... Work out... look smart... be on diets... eat when you want to... give interviews ... pose for cameras... crack jokes that everyone should laugh at....

They do have all the fun... while men like me slog our pathetic butts off....
