Beautiful food, beautiful life

I became enamored with Thai food when I was an English teacher in Bangkok, Thailand in 1969. David didn’t know much about Thai food until he married me in 1980. Now, he is a fan of Thai cuisine, too.

With this in mind, we ordered some take-out items from Thai Bistro Suksubay in Pearl Kai Shopping Mall. The food was great, as usual.

Here we are, raising our glass of chilled apple juice. “To your health, my dear!”:


We started with Summer rolls and peanut sauce:


Then we had Panang curry with beef and long beans on a bed of sticky rice:


This was followed by Cashew nut chicken and a small scoop of sticky rice:


Our dessert was Tapioca pudding:


Beautiful food, beautiful life.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to live and work in Thailand, a country made famous by the Broadway musical, “The King and I.”

Here I am, wearing an orange gown, posing with some of my Thai students at a wedding reception in 1969:

    Once again you are refusing to yield to the virus. You cannot have a fine meal at a restaurant so you have an elegant meal at home. You are making the best out of trying times. Congratulations on your success!

    Gigi I get such a kick from your & David’s dining blogs–your dinner looked just wonderful & I loved that 1960s photo; wow what an attractive group there 🙂

    I think I will have to order some Thai food take-out tonight.
    I love the picture. I sometimes look at pictures of myself from that time and wonder why that child was thinking she was an adult.
    Anyway, you did not waste any of your precious life and you are still making it all a grand experience. Good for you and lucky David!

    I love Thai food but our Thai restaurant here has not survived the lockdown and we are heart broken. It was a gorgeous place both decor and open kitchen food preparation.

    I would devour your meal lickety-split, Looks great.

    Couldn’t see any of the pictures except of you and David toasting eachother. Might be that I am trying that new Blogger which I had to switch to when my Reading list disappeared.
    Correction, finally got the pictures to load. The food looks great. Hope this is temporary.
