Ultimate Dining Experience : Tree Pod in Thailand

Can you imagine your filling to dining in a tree pod which is 16 feet or around 5 metres over the rainforest ground? 

The Tree pod dining is at Soneva Kiri by Six Sences on Koh Kood, Trad Province, Thailand. It's situated along the coastal path on the west facing side of Koh Kood.

The tree pod is engineered with a rigid frame swathed in woven rattan, is not unlike a cocoon with an open panorama window. You can look out onto panoramic views of the white sand beach and turquoise waters.

Up to four diners board the pod, and are then elevated to the lofty height by a system of safety winches. Food courses arrive courtesy of a flying waiter – harnessed to a zip line – as do beverage replenishments.

Koh Kood is a remote beautiful island situlated in the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. It is the fourth largest in Thailand, but one of the least developed. It is known for its white sand beach, pure water falls, crytal clear waters and traditional village life.

Trat is Thailand’s eastern-most province, located about 315 kilometers from Bangkok.
Both 4-5 hour slow boats and one hour speedboats from Laem Ngob and Dan Kao Piers in Trat Province provide service to the island though nicer resorts have their own boat service.

It's easy to go to Soneva Kiri. Fights from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Soneva Kiri Airport take 60 minutes by private plane, and there it is just 2 kilometres by speed boat to the resort's arrival pier.

Amazing Thailand always amazes you!

I love Thailand. I proud to be Thai. 
I'm sure everyone, who visited Thailand, love and miss Thailand.

Welcome to Thailand! 


Which Room are You?

I fall in love with this kitchen suddenly I saw it. It's so lovely, clean, bright and white. It's perfect. It's my dreamy kitchen!! My kitchen is very small. There're only a small white L shape counter and small two white cupboards in my kitchen. I dream about the big kitchen painted with white colour with a lovely island. I'd love to have bigger refrigerator, oven and sink, funtional kitchen equipments, many baking tools, and so on.
I wish my dream would come true *.*.

In the real world, this kitchen belong to Yvonne Eijkenduijn. She showed her lovely kitchen in her blog, yvestown blog.

Let's go to The Big Kitchen Post 2010 to see more details of this lovely kitchen and to know what and how she renovated it. The renovation was completed 2 years later she bought the house. Everything is made by herself, her lovely husband and IKEA. It's so cool!!

I'm attracted not only by her lovely kitchen but by her sweet toilet also.

I really love her lovely and functional kitchen and little toilet room! I'm sure that you'll love them also. After I read through the Big Kitchen Post 2010, I had something in mind.... You can know someone's (and your) personality from their favorite room!! Wowww, is it true? Let's find out ^.^

I find the information about 'personality vs. favorite room' from Anglomaniacy and Activerain blog. For me, my favorite rooms are toilet (and bath room) and kitchen. That's right, I love both rooms so much. I can not choose only one of them. It's posible for the gemini like me... :-D.

From these two sites, it's shown that my personalities are;
"You love freedom and hate to be controlled. You want to walk away from all the rules and rely on your imagination to direct your life instead. When you need to energize yourself, you head to the beach or to the forest."
"You pay close attention to your physical health and apperance. You have a positive outlook on life and are always neat, clean and well groomed."


"Easygoing and altruistic, you are most happy when taking care of others. While at times you can be boisterous, you make people feel comfortable around you and they always seek your advice when they have problems."
"You're casual, down to earth and love to nurture others. You're also kindhearted, a good listener and can easily put yourself in someone else's shoes. People fell relaxed around you."

How about your personality? Have Fun!!!


Social Network Sneakers

Concept designs for Adidas from Gerry Mckay based on the popular social networks Twitter and Facebook.

Even though I'm neither Facebook nor Twitter fan, I like them so much. The design and colour are very cute so I'd like to have one. Anyway I got too disappointed when I knew that the shoes aren’t available for purchase. They are just the concepts. So sad... T.T


Kaka is Coming Back!!!

No, I'm not talking about a famous Brazilian football midfielder 
nor a famous American pop singer.

I've just found the new design of my favorite snack in the childhood day. 
It's Thailand brand snack called 'Kaka'. It's a crunchy corn snack which has been 
a very popular snack food for over 3 decades. Anyway, popularity has declined 
with today's generation of youths. I've never seen them for long time, 
around 10 years, might be more....    

Today, Kaka is coming back! with so cool new design by Prompt Design
Look at their hairstyles which represents each of the corn snack's new flavors, 
caramel corn favor and chocolate favor.



You see, they're so differences. There are lots of changes. 
Today I plan to find them in the supermaket to remind the joy 
of my childhood days...Yummy...

Have a nice day!


Happy Chinese New Year 2011

Wish you a happy and prosperous new year! Gong xi fa cai!
I wish everyone here good health and lots of red pocket!!
All the best and have a wonderful year.

Chinese New Year – often called the Chinese Lunar New Year. Get out your broom and sweep away the past: the Year of the Rabbit begins February 3. It is a time to gather with family, honor ancestors and celebrate with a big banquet that symbolizes prosperity in the New Year.


There're chinese people around the world. It's no doubt that I'm also Thai-Chinese. I'm familiar with Chinese New Year Celebration since I was young. The most importance to celebrate New Year is to pray and to prepare offerings to the gods and our ancestors. We believe that these prayers will bring merit and blessings. After each prayer, we burn golden paper, believing that the paper will become money in the after life. 

The offerings include steamed duck, chicken, pork, fruit, Chinese cake and vegetarian food such as dried mushrooms, bean cakes and edible Chinese flowers. There're good meaning for every dishes which i'd like to let you know. 

Food Symbolism

Most of the dishes served during Lunar New Year (also known as Spring Festival) are symbolic of something positive and hopeful.

  • Chicken and fish, for example, symbolize happiness and prosperity--especially when served whole.
  • Dishes made with oranges represent wealth and good fortune because they are China's most plentiful fruit.
  • Noodles represent longevity: therefore, they should never be cut!
  • Duck symbolizes fidelity, while eggs signify fertility.
  • Bean curd or tofu, however, is avoided because its white color suggests death and misfortune.
Dishes are also chosen based on homonyms--words that either are spelled the same or sound the same as other words. Fish (yu) is served because it sounds similar to the Chinese word for plenty; whole fish represents abundance. Turnips are cooked because their name (cai tou) also means "good luck."

Another popular Lunar New Year dish is jiaozi, dumplings boiled in water. In some areas of China, coins are placed in the center of jiaozi. Whoever bites into one of these dumplings will have an exceptionally lucky year.
