My hipster lifestyle, just got worse… I’m now a ‘cafe hopper’.

What you don’t know about condo | Bangkok Edition

For those who follow me on my Youtube Channel, you’ll know that I used to live in a condo. Click the video below to watch a my old condo tour: Now although it’s been fun living that luxe lifestyle, I can safely, positively say that condos are definitely not my thing. While most people here boast of apartments on the 20th or (insert random shudder here) the 30th floor, I’ve always wanted to live as close to the ground as possible. I want to be able to wake up every morning, cup of tea in tow and step out into a garden and smell the roses (so to speak). In their defence, condos are convenient. They usually come with a swimming pool, a gym and amenities that apartments in the UK, only dare to dream of. They range from £100 – a gazillion, but for every budget, you can be there’ll be a condo to suit your taste and budget. Unlike in London, Bangkok seems to have an oversupply, and so you can really pick where you want to live, …

The best brew this side of Bangkok | The Tea Warehouse

The latest craze to sweep Bangkok, isn’t what you’d expect… It’s tea. Christmas did come early for me. For a place that averages temperatures of 30 degrees, the demand for tea has been understandably quit thin. But imagine my absolute elation when I started seeing roadside sellers selling great tasting hot and cold tea blends at a fraction of the usual price. As expected, I’ve been sampling as many as I can stomach, but this would have to be the best brand I’ve come across. I discovered them at a weekend fair. Bangkok is know for it’s numerous weekend fairs and markets. I stumbled upon the tea warehouse at one such event, held in Siam. Greatest find ever! You can take their delightful tea blends home and make them for yourself. Meanwhile, back at Casa el Zipporah, I’m just about finishing my third bottle of the stuff. It’s safe to say: I’m hooked! You can find them on: http://www.theteawarehouseshop.com/ If I were you, I’d stay away, they’re devilishly good, and dangerously moreish. Enjoy.

It all ends at Enzo’s | Sushi at Khao Lak’s finest

Enzo  | Takua Pa, 62/2 Moo 5, Bang Niang Beach Road Kukkhak Contact  | Enzo Price  | A good meal with wine, around 700B ; the Enzo degustation menu (recommended) 1500B pp There are some places where time stands still. For a brief moment, something slices through the humdrum of modernity, pulls you by the ear and makes you stop and feel. You don’t have to be a foodie to experience it, but let’s just say that it’s akin to an out of body experience. Cue Enzo. An empyrean getaway amidst the lesser claptrap that heralds the way to Bang Niang beach. The location doesn’t exactly scream fine dining, but I had been told it was an unmissable experience. Oh yeah? We shall see. In the past, with the exception of the traditional Thai food, I’ve been quite disappointed at the provender available on the islands. So the thought of yet another Japanese restaurants, didn’t exactly tickle my fancy. After all, why would anyone go to all that effort to provide fresh, locally sourced and delicious food to the many tourists that would simply take whatever …
