So, today was my last day in Lopburi for the time being. I finished the second module of my language study and I move to Nakhon Sawan tomorrow. I celebrated mainly by eating sweet things. But a totally unexpected highlight of my day was lunch. I went to the Mosquito Restaurant with some of the other language learners (that is its official name by the way…its other official name is the Blue Restaurant…), and as we sat down we were handed a newly created English Menu. Concealing our laughter as we read it was difficult.
These are some of the dishes on offer in the Mosquito Restaurant:
Some of my favourites:
‘A frog fries the garlic’
‘Minced snake-head fish meat’
‘Mix noodles made of green’
‘Mix total up the friend’
‘Mix a pig praises’
‘Cook time squid hand, frame pig’
‘Cook time shrimp hand, fried rice the shrimp’
Even reading them now, for about the 50 millionth time, I am laughing my head off! Laughter truly is a wonderful gift! The Lord knows how to bless us when we’re least expecting it…and in very weird and wonderful ways!
