We, a small group of 3, patronized Baan Klang Nam last month. It was shortly after New Year and reservation was made to ensure we have a table. My the other half insisted, over the phone, a table by the river. He reminded the person who took our booking again before hanging up.

While the name says Baan Klang Nam, it is actually a restaurant built by the bank of Chao Phraya River at the end of Soi 14 off Rama III Road. Do not take it literally that the eating place sits in the middle of the water.

On arrival, we were ushered to a table but the river-view was missing which upset the boyfriend. He demanded an alternative without 2nd thought. The server cordially invited us to another table (see 5th picture) which was cozy and far from other dining crowd. But the night was stale and the place was not air-conditioned. Read: stuffiness. We, once again, requested for a better ventilated place and finally settled down. ^_^"

Yes, it's trivia but this brings out my next 2 points ...

Vitsaraj Sookwattanasiri - Kwam Song Jam

Finally a little update on this blog after a short hiatus of 4 months.

Last year, I chanced upon a 2007 lakorn called Sroy Saeng Jan (The Jewel of BangbodOr 月光项链 in Chinese.) starring none other than Rome & Rita. The synopsis, and more, of the drama can be found at Wasashimi's blog.

But what really caught my attention was this song, Kwam Song Jam, played at the end of each episode. I have very little info who the singer is but the song touches my heart.

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.

About BODYholic

moo and kratai BODYholic, also known affectionately as moo ooan (a.k.a fat pig) by his little kratai noi (a.k.a little rabbit), has intense interests in Thai foods, traditional Thai architecture, coffee and cheesecakes. I've to add that I'm not a prolific blogger.
