Warning: Reading this post could give you diabetes! First up, Songkran gifts from Eddie's office. The hand garland is for good luck. The sweets here are as sweet as they look, more so maybe. They do look really pretty. No one except me ate even one of the sweets. I tried a brownish looking one which tasted a little like Kueh Dodol, just harder.
The rest of these sweety photos were taken at Gourmet Market in Soi 26/Soi Aree's K-Village, a new low-rise mall which looks like a nice place to chill out in. But no photo-taking is actually allowed, I was told later.
Here's the section on Kiam-Sng-Tee (Salty-Sour-Sweet) goodies, these are dried preserves (someone correct me if I'm wrong). So many to choose from.
Lots of samples.
That's kiwi fruit on the right.
This one I found really interesting. The green stuff (also in container below the samples) is actually Green pepper/Capsicum! Who knew you could make kiam-sng-tees from Capsicum, and they were delicious.
Fruits galore. Thailand is tropical fruit heaven...they even cut the fruits so nicely for you, of course you pay a slight premium for this convenience lah. Love the papayas and mangos here.
Pure mango juice, no syrup added. About S$1 a bottle.
And of course the King of Fruits, no samples though. I'm not a fan of Monthong Durians. Even though Thai durians look more majestic, I still think Malaysian durians rule, much more fragrant (or pungent depending on your affinity to the fruit).
