Living in Bangkok...surviving it (Sam speaks)

Living in Bangkok sometimes makes you miss home. BUT thanks to some good friends who managed to bring some good old Ramly burgers here, I made myself a triple decker, triple cheese, double pork bacon Ramly burger resting in between lettuces, tomatoes, onions and cucumbers, drenched in ketchup and thousand island, finished gently with some nicely toasted buns in between it all. Then for a moment, just a moment, it felt like home...

*for illustration purposes only (I'm dreaming of the day that Charis will served me this as is :))

A good burger does wonders.

Remember this speech from How I met your mother:
"Just a Burger? Just a burger. Robin, it’s so much more than “just a burger”. I mean…that first bite—oh what heaven that first bite is! The bun like a sesame freckled breast of an angel resting gently on the ketchup and mustard below—flavors mingling in a seductive pas-de-deux And then…a pickle…the most playful little pickle! Then a slice of tomato, a leaf of lettuce and a…a patty of ground beef so exquisite; swirling in your mouth breaking apart and combining again in a fugue of sweets and savor so delightful. This is no mere sandwich of grilled meat and toasted bread, Robin: this is like God…speaking to us in food."
