Just Pick And Choose

This style of eating is common in Thailand, and it's one of my favorite ways to start the day.  You get a plate with rice, and then pick and choose the other dishes you want.  I love Kai Palo.  It's a great comfort food that contains pork belly, boiled duck eggs and tofu in a sweet sauce that goes great with rice. Chinese sausage is also really tasty.  I usually will add a fried egg, cooked sunny-side up.  This day in Silom, on Surawong Road, I ordered exactly this.  It was less than $2 US. For those who worry about not being able to speak Thai, this is a simple way to eat hearty meals. After my meal, I walked a bit down Surawong Road, all the way to the Amara Hotel, where a friend stayed on her visit to Bangkok just a few weeks earlier.  I then found a place to get a fabulous oil massage.  It was 90 minutes for about 700 baht, or $20 US.
