Who would have thought that a pack of delicious Thai curry a friend brought me would lead me to one of Bangkok's best (and, of course, hidden) gem of Thai food and Thai food innovations with a long story harking back since the wartime, and a lot of delicious snacks later over the decades?

Usually a town so close it is overlooked, Nakhon Pathom has proved, at least for us, to be a food haven and a place great for a short escapade.

Above: The Okura Afternoon Delight – the classic afternoon tea served in Japanese-style wooden box at The Okura Prestige Bangkok. A real must-try. No need to wait upon the season. 😀 Strangely, but truly, a cup of tea provides an ever soothing solace unlike others. Feeling jittery and overwhelmed? Treat yourself to a good warm cup, a quiet corner, a time to ponder and reflect, and most likely, you are renewed. Emotionally, yes. But...
