Cooking class

I took a thai cooking class yesterday. It was really fun!

I learned how to make pad thai, green curry, chicken with yellow curry, sticky rice with mango, and tom yum soup. The basics and ingredients were prepared by the company, so it was easy. They also did the dishes for us as well.

Our teacher's name was Meow. She had a college degree.

Before we got to the kitchen area, she showed us around a local farmer's market where I saw some interesting things like chickens with their heads and feet still intact, and a woman carving and gutting a fish while it was still alive.

I had 1 day to spend doing something yesterday before my flight to koh samui today. It was either cooking or elephants and you know how much I like to eat/cook.

I met 2 cool chicks during the class. Judith (switzerland) and Michelle (san fran). We met up in the evening and checked out this rooftop bar nearby that was a popular place for foreigners. It was a bit funky. The place had tons of xmas lights and a sliding roof and lots of psychadelic decorations with black lights but no dance floor and no drugs allowed anywhere, so it just seemed a bit inconsistent. I forgot to get a picture with them but I got their contact info. I may be able to see Michelle again while I'm in Thailand if we're lucky, you never know.
