My favorite PadThai lady!

photo taken with iPhone4s

I had the chance to visit my favorite padthai lady in Hua-Hin, Thailand. Since the late 90′s I keep on coming back to the same night market just to eat her padthai.
Yeah, I saw her alright. But was not able to taste her padthai and chicken satay :/
Reason was, it was really busy that evening and there was just too many patrons in line waiting to be seated and eat her padthai. My husband even stood in line but it the lady’s costumers were not really in hurry to give up their seats (to my padthai lady’s irritation too) so we just left and went to a restaurant nearby and had our thai food fix.

We did went back to the night market the following nights, but was no longer ‘hungry’ for padthai so yeah, this year, I didn’t get to eat my favorite padthai. But hey, there’s something to look forward to next year, right? (:

Sardines on recession too

I know I know! where have the good food photos gone?
I barely carry around my heavy Canon 5DM2 these days because of my backpains :/ not taking much photos with it too but using most my iPhone4s almost daily. Results of course aren’t comparable, but for now, doable :)

Anyways, I just wanted to share my favorite appetizer from a local Greek restaurant that became a fovorite of ours (hubby and I) My husband couldn’t care less about this tiny fishes but they’re oh la la for me, yum!  But what I wanted to show too was the green on the side. I haven’t touched it yet but it seems someone has bitten on it already?

Nah, that’s recession folks :P
