Happy Songkran 2019 Thailand

By Ianpassion

Introducing to you is our youngest child, Nemi. For him, Songkran is always every day. He is unstoppable. Now that there is no class, he has more chances to play our water faucet at the back. We are already expecting that at the end of this month our water bill would rise up. 

Songkran is always a wonderful season of the year for all Thais and foreigners living in Thailand. It is a Thai new year water festival that takes place from 13-15 of April, the hottest month of the year. Traditionally, Thais pour or splash water to someone as a symbol of happiness, love, empathy, kindness, and for cleansing and wishing for rain to come.

Back then we grew our own rice, after some months waiting we harvested the grain and spread on a mat to expose directly to the heat of the sun for drying. When the grain was dried enough then this is dehulled by continues raising and dropping of a heavy wooden pestle in a mortar.

Food in Thailand will always amaze you. There are lots of varieties for your choice depending on each province. 

One day the owner of the mini-store where I always buy my drinks and snacks asked about my breakfast. I replied that today I had a niyaw gai and cafe boran  (sticky rice with fried chicken and traditional Thai coffee).
