This is the second sketch. I set next to this really old charming road side stores selling all sorts of dried stuff. The old lady owner of the stall was looking over my shoulder every now and then to see my sketch. We had plenty of passerby who stopped to look. Some even thought we were from urban development officers out on patrol. I was holding my breath quite a bit because of the smelling drain nearby. Sight and smell all rolled into one interesting experience.

Crispy Chicken Noodle @ Noodi, Bangkok
This crispy noodle served with stewed chicken is always my favourite must-eat when I visit Bangkok. Condiments like sugar and chili flakes are standard items on the table at almost every thai restaurant.
Jim Thompson's House, Bangkok
Jim Thompson's was an American businessman who helped revitalize the Thai silk and textile industry in the 1950s and 1960s. He lived in Bangkok after the war. It was delightful for me to visit his very charming thai house last weekend whilst I was attending training in Bangkok. He has an eye for details largely due to his study in architecture.
