Sawadee Khrap

Just got back from a fabulous meal at Brian and Pong’s new “SoupaSteak”.   Their opening day will be next Wednesday 3rd and tonight they had a shake-out run for help and menu with selected friends.  Needless to say everyone was very happy and filled.

I had the chicken fried steak with potatoes and salad. excellent and pricing very affordable – 89 Baht – $3 , extra tomato and onion salad and peach & ice cream for desert – total bill 185 Baht  $5.75

I will get some photos of the place and menu after the Grand Opening and post them for you – They are located on Huay Kaew Rd just up the street from the Soho Bar and 3 doors from the Lemon Tree restaurant.

Dry Spell – rains coming

Sawadee Khrap

What a dry spell – almost a month without a post, I am slowing down.  Just too hot, it’s been 100+ the entire month but now the rains are coming and it’s starting to cool down. 

Been teaching Lightroom and Photoshop – CS5 has arrived and it’s great – what an improvement – really impressed.  I haven’t started doing any real photo work – just too hot  – but now as it cools down I want to go back over my old photos with the new Photoshop and also to get started using Corel Painter – I’ve put that off for the longest time.

I haven’t done any work in the studio – again just too hot and I don’t have A/C in the room – cooking  -  no boy wants to sweat in there for any photo – in a couple of months it should be nice to line some models up – looking forward to that.

Anyway – just a catch up


Mae Taeng – 7 Tribes Village trip

Sawadee Khrap

Last week I took Ton to his family’s home in Mae Taeng and then he and his brother showed me the local area – nice day trip – had a great time. CRW_0824 


Mae Taeng area is beautiful this time of the year – these red flowered trees are everywhere .



CRW_0835From here we went to the Buatong Waterfall – so much minerals in the water that they have  dropped out and coated the hill with a cement like layer- amazing.

You can walk right up the falls without slipping –




Next we went to see the 7 Tribes Village – here is their brochure and the front sign – I love this shot of a Karen girl – Ton got her to play and sing a native song for us – great

From here we went to the end of the road which ended at the Ping River – many boulders in it so white water abounds – rafting and CRW_1103 tubing is the name of the day – Ton and his brother went swimming  – I just watched and relaxed – got a good shot of a very cute ladyboy – can’t wait till the rainy season starts and the area greens up – beautiful
