It's my pleasure. It has always been safe despite the demos now and then, insyaAllah. It would be good to avoid putting up at 'hot' areas such as the Central World;)

Hi Lynn, Sawatdee, nice blog. Just curious why Muslims shouldn't dine at non-muslims place? No thalal?
The last time I was in Bangkok was in '68.
Hope the problems in Bangkok has been solved.
Have a nice day and keep a song in your heart.
Lee.

Dear Uncle Lee, thanks for liking my blog. Kindly refer to the recipe above. Even if it's vegetable soup, pork flavoured stock is added to it thus making the vegetable dish no longer halal and cannot be consumed by Muslims;)
Bangkok is now heated up due to the coming 3rd July 2011 General Election.
