Finally I got back from my trips and boy, I really have a lot of back logs to write on! Seems like I really have to filter off the so so ones and just focus on the good ones. Melbourne and Japan trips were damn awesome! Food, scenery, friends, new friends and of course, coffees. Will compile and write on the places for good food soon I promise.
I have also completed my Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) Barista Intermediate Course and some other baking courses. I will be embarking on a specialty coffee bar in the near future for the passion of good coffees and bringing them to my friends. Will release the news on the opening once I’ve settled everything and run in the operations. Believe me, I’ve been planning for years.
Anyways, these couple of weeks will be extremely busy and will be flying again next Thursday for my annual charity trip and this year we’re heading to Chiang Rai, Thailand. You can read more about it on http://www.caregiversgroup.org. Will try to update daily when we’re there! I am very very active on Instagram @eatwithroy. Follow my account there and you’ll get all my latest news and eating/coffee/chill/travel places!
Alrighty, need to catch some sleep. I have cupping session tomorrow to try new single origins and blends. Will write soon and have a great weekend y’all!
Following up on my previous blog again at http://wp.me/pCcuC-Lw, this blog I’m gonna talk about what we ate in Pai… I must say, love the food there and love the people there too! So much warmth and love! 😉 You can check out more pics about our charity trip to Pai on our Facebook page! Check out the pics:
So we left Chiang Mai and headed towards Pai, which is a mountainous village 3.5 hours north of CM. You know, it’s terribly hard to write about places when you’re on the roads. So I can only lump them together and let the pictures tell the story. Below are pics that we ate and what the locals eat.
Alright I’m gonna embark on writing on food and a little on shopping in Chiang Mai (CM). I was in CM last Dec together with my charity group, Care Givers Group, for our annual charity trip in Pai. Hence CM was a transit place for us where we buy loads of goodies and supplies for the school that we were donating to. So when we arrived on the first day, after our chores of buying and packing for the kids, naturally we had to look for food. And just next door to the hotel, Royal Lanna Hotel (http://wp.me/p2BhOI-5f) we were staying is the Anusarn Market, linked to the night bazaar of CM. See the pics below for the foods that we tried!
Will write about CM’s night market in a later post.
