It’s a treat to see Thai women dancers performing right before your eyes. It’s one thing to watch such a performance on TV and quite another to view it on stage.

These three Thai dancers put up a most splendid performance one day at Tesco in Mutiara Damansara. Thai folk dancing falls under the categories of Khon, Lakhon and Fawn Thai.

Frankly, I don’t know which is which but it is one aspect¬† of Thai¬†culture that I am most impressed with. These ladies did it most effortlessly and their harmony in steps and well coordinated body movements revealed that they were truly in tune with one another.

Those who have seen the traditional dances performed by Thai women would realise that their grace and elegance are second nature to their gentle, swaying body movements.

Not so long ago, a troupe came to KL and left some indelible impressions on the locals.

The prawns and strips of squid on the left have made me slighty giddy. Yes, it’s the sight of tom yam soup, prawns and the otak-otak that did it.

Nobody I have come across, absolutely nobody has told me that they don’t like Thai food.

If you do not recognise that big pot of gravy in the picture – shame on you! That’s one of Thailand’s greatest culinary gifts to the Southeast Asian region – Tom yam soup.

Even the mere thought of tomyam makes me salivate.

I don’t know what kind of soil the Thais have over in their country but their mangoes seem to taste sweeter and more succulent than those in Malaysia. With that, I would just like to say “Sawadee-ka!”
