I know that you can eat any rice, but I said if you were given the choice? I guess you will choose sticky rice because you're a "larp" lover.

I have no fans, and strangers in Vientiane don't know me.

It's just a normal house and not a mansion.


Okay. If someone happened to shove a gun in my face and I was staring down the barrel while that same someone presented me with the ultimatum: 'Khao Niaw of Khao jaow?',  I, too, would probably go with the tidier option. I'm gonna bet a dollar here, that you don't use your hands at all, while eating. True?

Is that a good thing or what?
What if I reccognized you in Vientiane? How would you like me to behave? Answer this one. You can't ignore this one. Wink

That's a mansion as far as I'm concerned. Lao standards, anyway. Unless you're saying there are real PROPER mansions in Laos.


This I know for a fact, she'll definitely avoid you at all costs knowing the type of person you are. LOL  As for the rest of us, I think she avoid us as well and turn the other cheek if we are recognizable to her from the website.

As for sweet rice and jasmine rice, I like both depending on the types of food we serve.  Jasmine rice is really good with stir fried foods and variation of soups.  Sweet rice is good with larb, au lam, mook, and jeal.  As for bbq both are good with it.  Smiley

Give me sticky-rice any day of the week, and yes I use my fingers. That is proper etiquette; I can't imagine trying to eat it any other way. Forks, spoons and chopsticks won't do. And forget eating it with power tools, like you would eat spaghetti, it just can't be done.

Oh yea, I think I have consumed more than my share of Johnnie Walker tonight. Sorry for that, and sorry I couldn't share with you all.

29 days to go!

You won't recognise me.

I don't look down on anyone though.


Sounds like you do a bit of airbrushing. Is that why I won't recognize you? Judging from some of your responses, it doesn't sound like you hold yourself in such high esteem.

Since nobody really knows what 'Lard Dip' looks like, I may still have a chance to meet my idol, the Laopride.com admin'. (I will change my motto to make it official). Masquerading as a Thai tourist might get the job done.

That does sound like a bit of prejudice there nang.
Doesn't matter though, I'm a big boy and can take a hint. I know when I'm not welcome. Grin

I already knew I had NO chance of getting a favourable reply. I just wanted to see if she had any class her self. She passed the test. A real lady. Cheesy

What's up with this 'sweet' rice, man? You guys don't call it 'sticky' up in Huay Xay?

With som tam, definitely kaow nieow. With gaeng paneng curry, kaow jaow for sure.

If I had a gun to my head, kaow nieow. Makes a good snack when walking from MRT to BTS stations too.

Eat with my fingers, the right way Tongue

Larb Dip, I'm gonna start calling you Lord Dip BTW because you are obviously hi-so ;P

I agree. Khao Jaow when eating gaang (soup/curry etc). Otherwise you would just be sucking the juice off your fingers if you had it with Khao niaw.

I like your style more and more each time you post, bro. Wink

Don't worry about those Siamese 'Hi-So' looking down on you, mate.

'Lord Dip' sounds REAL good. Especially rolling off a Falang tongue. I can take the bantering. However, if it came out of a Lao mouth, I might have to throw a few punches here and there. I can't take sarcasm. Grin

You can still eat soup and curry with sticky rice. Use your hands for rice, and spoon for the soup/curry.
 
This is the 21st century. Maybe you should call our neighbours across the Mekong as Thais, instead of Siamese.

Okay. Anything for you. Wink

It's done traditionally for many centuries in Laos.

In "Lo-So" meals, usually there's a bowl of soup in the middle to be shared. Everyone is given a spoon for the soup.

We should called them Tai or Siamese barbarians. Just joking.

Sweet or Glutinous is the same as sticky rice (kao neil).  I'm just using an English name for it. Smiley

Don't tell me manes are back in nang.

Flicking through some of my photo albums, I noticed all my male kin used to sport mullets back in the day (25 - 30 years ago). Are they back in?

In Auckland - especially in the 'darker' areas of Manukau - 2/3 of the pubaos grow rat tails. Once it's plated and is draped across your shoulder it looks quite 'hot'.
