MacDonald In Thailand

The Macdonald mascot in Thailand is friendly, with hands clasped together, just like the people in Thailand are really very friendly and whenever we went in restaurants, shops, hotels, etc, they would clasp their hands together and said - Sawaddee ka (to female)and - Sawaddee krab (to male), which means hello in Thai. They really deserved to be called the Land of Thousand Smiles.
Even when we are on the streets, the locals are ever ready to help two "lost" I had been to Thailand many times and I would go back again for their friendly attitude and good shopping (yayy shopping sounds good to me).

No Durian Sign

Saw this sign when I was about to press the button to go up to my hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. Well, it looked familar, just so similar to many signboards around Singapore too. No durians in bus, train, plane, etc. (lol)

The durian fruit is the king of fruit, the smell and taste are simply in-describable but delicious. I wondered why there is no sign which said "Smelly Tofu(Taiwan Signature Dish)" not allowed.
Yes to durian and No to smelly tofu (lol

Food vendor selling noodles, donuts in the morning. But in the afternoon, she is still selling the same type of food, I was wondering if the food would be contaminated especially when the stall was situated just beside the dusty road.
Food Vendor selling salad just like our rojak but the ingredients are different. I saw her putting a small tiny crab in and pound together with all the vegetables, etc...So cute.
