I spot the same ingredients on the shelves in the supermarket—galang root, baby aubergine, and kaffir leaves as well as dozens of types of chili sauce.

Following May into the kitchen, I see it's just as pared-back as the cafe. There are pots of broths in industrial-sized pans bubbling over gas canisters. Workstations are clean, simple, and look like the set-up you might find at a roadside cafe in Bangkok. When I overuse it, it just cuts off!

So I have to use gas," May says, preparing my bowl of kuai tiew yen ta fo , a pink noodle soup glistening with squid, fish balls, fish tofu, and morning glory. There is definitely a nip in the air, though it's far less noticeable once you're digesting a burning hot curry. Other people cry having my curry!

Finances go up and down, but the Isan people laugh and keep driving their tuktuks, driving their taxis and plowing their rice fields. For those new to Thailand Lao is a separate language as Portuguese is from Spanish.

In fact, there are a lot of different languages, cultures and peoples. The predominate bunch now, though, are the Isan people. They can outvote Bangkok. Isan people are not only all over Bangkok, they are in the north and even in the south. I might add that with the permutations of modernity the Lao who were happy and out of a laugh, are now getting a bit sour.


Progress can sometimes push too many buttons. This is a way to examine the present by exploring a possible future in the galaxy. Finally, for tourists and expats, the more you know about people including yourself, the more life can be fulfilling and enjoyable.

The author is investigating massage among the Orang Asli at the Thai-Malaysia border area. In addition, he is delving into the word of Silat.

He fears the good old days of Bangkok are over and blames it on the arrival or virtual golf. Krungthep is beginning to be indistinguishable from Tokyo or Singapore. If you spot someone wearing a Survivair S-Series gas mask with the double filter, you will know it is the author. At the moment, only one other visitor to the realm has this kind of protection.
