Myanmar (Burmese) Food Restaurant in Bangkok

This is the repost from Myanmar Today website. The original article about Myanmar restaurant in Bangkok can be found here.

For those Myanmar food lovers living in Thailand or visiting Thailand, it is not always easy to find Myanmar food in Thailand. We at Myanmar Today would like to point those Myanmar food lovers to a Myanmar restaurant in the center of Bangkok. There is one Myanmar restaurant near Bumrungrad International Hospital near Sukumvit Soi 1. The restaurant does not have a special name – simply called “Myanmar Cuisine”, and serve authentic and delicious Myanmar food to customers. Each set meal consists of one serving of rice and one dish and cost around 50 baht (less than 2 US dollar), which is considered quite reasonable. The restaurant serves around 20 dishes for breakfast and lunch. During breakfast, they also serve Monhingha (Burmese rice noodle soup). You can also order Burmese style milk tea for your breakfast or lunch. Popular dishes serve here include Burmese style pork curry, fried roselle leaves, Burmese style chicken liver curry, and fish curry. The restaurant regrettably does not serve halal food though. The staffs are quite friendly and food preparation and display are quite clean. The restaurant usually closes around 4 PM so dinner is not an option here. [.....]  read more

Last year CIPA figures show worse than ever sales for mirrorless cameras worldwide. 2014 may be a different figure. According to the global shipment figures from CIPA, market share for mirrorless cameras compared to DSLR has increased over the same period in 2013. According to CIPA figures, global shipment of DSLR falls by 22% during Jan-June 2014, compared to the same period in 2013. Global shipment of DSLR in the first six months of 2013 was 6,263,002 units while it was only 4,904,435 units in the same period in 2014. In contrast, the total global shipment of mirrorless cameras rose from 1,322,622 units in first six months of 2013 to 1,491,613 units in the same period in 2014. This is an increase of 13% over the same period last year.

A new house for the puppies

image

Our puppies are growing every day. They are big, healthy and feed a lot. The problem is, the mother (Thong) seems to be worried. Our rental house is a town house so there is no fence in the front. It is so open. And it is also very cold for the puppies at night time. Lots of mosquitoes also come and bite the puppies. So we decided to give Thong and the puppies a nice puppy house that will also prevent mosquitoes.And here is the puppy house.
We use the ready-made big mosquito net as their house. We then covered the tent with a few black plastic sheets so that the mother has some privacy. Thong usually does not like or trust strangers and she sometimes bite strangers without any warning. And to prevent it from flying away, we put water in the used 6L drinking water bottles and use them as weight. We also covered the base with some cardboard boxes to prevent from scratching from puppies and Thong.
At first, Thong seemed a bit confused with the new house. But in a few minutes, she learned how to go in and out of the tent, and became familiar with the new thing.
The babies are now big and healthy, and feed a lot and become very fat. And they seem to like their new house that we gave them. [.....]  read more

Our little puppies

image

My dog has delivered! Ok, that’s not something to be very excited. But she delivered three cute little puppies.
It all occurred while we were away for a weekend. Usually, every weekend, we go back home. I mean, we stay in a rental house near our work, and drive back to our real home every Friday evening, and come back on Monday in the early morning. So, last week we went back as usual on Friday and came back on Monday. My wife noticed that Thong’s (that is the name of our dog) big belly was gone. That was when we realized she has delivered.
So that evening on return from work, we tried to find her babies. Unfortunately, after more than an hour of exhaustive search, we still could not find her puppies. They were no where to be found. Our colleagues confirmed she had already delivered, so the babies must be somewhere. Finally, a guard from the bank near by pointed out the puppies to us. To our amazement, the puppies were taken care of not by mother, but their grandmother! Yea, they were taken care of by Thong’s mother. But the granny does not have breast milk. And she didn’t let Thong come near the babies. The babies need milk from the mother. So, with the help of the guard, we brought the puppies back home. And Thong was more than happy to take care of the babies and give milk.
The puppies and the matter are now in front of our house, in a special mosquito net for the babies. Please be careful when you walk past our house. Thong might bite you. [.....]  read more

Preparing for parenthood

On 25th of this month, I will be a father. We are planning a delivery of a new baby on 25th November. We prefer normal delivery, but our Ob-Gyn informed that she might not be available during the expected date. So, finally, we decided to do a planned delivery.
How do I feel? Pretty excited, pretty worried and quite frantic. What? You want to say there is nothing to be frantic about? I have never been a father, and this is the first time I will be a father, ok? I have every right to be worried and excited.
Boy or girl? We don’t know yet. And we want it to be a surprise. Isn’t it wonderful to know the gender of your baby at the time of delivery? [.....]  read more

Blogging from my phone

image

It has been a long time that I write in this blog. Part of the reason is that I was quite lazy. Another reason is I rarely opened my computer at home to write something. I was using my phone to assess the internet most of the time at home. And you know about mobile phone browsers, right? They are slow and buggy while at the same time are not full functional. It all changed after I bought a new.phone, the HTC Desire.
I was using a Nokia Music Express 5800 for the past one and half year. Nokia 5800 was a great phone. It has a stable operating system, has excellent speakers – one of the best among mobile phones, and usable mobile browser. It was ok for most of the things I did online. However, it was not fit for a mobile blogging.
Last month, I bought a new Android phone, the HTC Desire. It has a fast processor, big screen, fast browser. And there is a dedicated WordPress application in the Android Market. It is a fully functional WordPress client. So here I am, with my first post, direct from my Android device. [.....]  read more
