CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : CHIANGMAI SUNDAY NIGHT MARKET

Continuation to my previous post about Night Market at Pai which situated around 3 1/2 hours drive from Chiangmai City, this is about the famous or Sunday Walking Night Market at Chiangmai city itself.

The Sunday Walking Night Market runs through the centre of the Old City along Rachadamnoen Road which start from The Phae Gate to the Police Station.

Seriously happening here. It start at 5pm to 10pm. My advice to start early like around 6 - 7pm. The crowds is seriously getting crazier around 8pm onwards. You barely move with all those curious tourist. You will be sandwiched in the sea of people.

Again, I don't even bother about any knick knacks or whatsoever. My main focus is just food and food and food again. WTH! Too many inexpensive delicious nibbles to main meals to choose. 

I tried new street food which is pretty much out of curiosity of the taste. WTH! Nothing to lose since its really inexpensive and just my belly getting bigger. DAMN!!!

Kanom Ba-Bin delicacy


I started with Kanom Ba - Bin which I mistakenly with the PotHold 'kuih' ate at Pai Night Market. Damn! wrong...this is just cold coconut 'kuih'. Don't like it at all. I wish its hot. Some more too much for me to finish plus not delicious. haihhhh!!! I wanna save my stomach for other delicious things. This is just the beginnning some more.


Gac fruit

Next saw this vendor sells ' fruit juice from heaven ' with this weird looking fruits on display. I saw this fruit when visited Hanoi few years ago. mmmm....never thought this is from heaven. kekekeke... I was told it call Jackfruit which I don't believe thats the real name because I know how Jackfruit look like. Cheh! After chicken and duck talk with the vendor, found this fruit call Gac Fruit. 

Gac is a Southeast Asian fruit which can be found from Southern China to Northeastern Australia, including Thailand, Laos , Myanmar , Cambodia and Vietnam.

Chinese call it Mubieguo and in other place call it red melon, baby jackfruit, spiny bitter gourd and many more depend of region. 

I personally love the orange color of this fruit. Since its orange in color this fruit is rich in beta carotene (pro vitamin A).

I was told among Benefits of Gac fruit :

* Lower blood pressure
* Lower cholestrol
* reduces sugar in blood
* against diabetes
* against prostate cancer
* treats 1 phase cancer.

Gosh! no wonder it call fruits from haven.

The vendor told me this fruit has no taste by itself so the juice she is selling mixed with passion fruits. Taste of the juice? More to passion fruits! kakakaka...so I don't know what is the real taste of this Gac fruit by itself.

seafood on a grill

After all those appertiser, time for main course. Ngeeeeee...I found this vendor selling grilled seafood plater. Bought it to eat while standing. This is night market la...where got space to sit one! Delicious main course and super cheap price to get well seasoned squids, clams, mussels, prawns.

collage of food

They also sell that snails which I don't try. It look like 'siput babi'. Damn!

Miang Kham, Thailand

I finished my main course grilled seafood plater deliciously. Next to clean that seafood smells linger in my mouth. Then found this mid age man selling this 'miang kham' aka Leaf Wrapped Bites.

I was told Miang Kham direct translation is 'eating many things in one bites' and a must try food if you are in northern Thailand.

It's Cha Plu leaf (similar to betel and in Malay community we call it 'Daun Kaduk')  wraps peanuts, ginger , chillies, shallots, green mango and onions.

The 'ang mo' who is queuing ahead of me describe it taste sweet, spicy and very addictive and that fella ordered for 5 sticks. Oh! it must be really delicious then.

 To me it more like a snacks. It taste is something you will get hooked on it and very addictive. True enough. I bought one stick which consist 3 wraps and the next thing I know I was lining up for another 2 sticks. Damn...got suck up with this 'Miang Kham'! I want more and more...

My dessert for the night is fluffy cashew nuts butter waffles and finished my supper with this fried mussels. Burppppp!!!! My walking street buffet end here. Thats what I can eat for that night. I wish I can stuff more. Damn!!!!

Many 'ang mo' eat this dish. They added sugar, , crushed peanuts, coarse chilli in it.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Adding retinol into our skincare routine at age of 25 to 30 is the perfect time to slow down the ageing process. So, what is retinol that people are hyping about? In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old. I guess, am afraid to start one because I read many side effects if use it wrong.  What is the side effect if you use retinol wrong?  Retinols can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. So, it is advisable to apply this at
