Tiny street pancakes.

There are crowds of food stands on all the streets near the school where I teach. They make all sorts of things, like iced coffee, cashew samosas, and tiny oyster omelettes. Last week, Bordeaux bought a bag of kanom paeng jee, tiny coconut pancakes, from one of these street-vendors. They came in two shades and flavors, one crimson, the other white. Both were delicious, though you might not know it from my expression in the last photo.

In related news, Bordeaux has launched a new blog at Marita Says. He provides a parallel account of our life in Bangkok, offers a lot of creative recipes, and showcases his latest design projects. Stop by to get an idea of how well I'm eating.

Really amazing pics - they look like they are straight from an ad campaign.

Can you pls send me one of those coconut pancakes?
