Stayed put at my hotel room today to work on some new choreographies for my Z Step class. Gotta ease myself slowly back to reality. Headed out to the old town for lunch and made a beeline for Kejana and look what I found—- empty tables!
The pork sausage with egg was delicious. Glass noodles stir-fried with chunks of pork sausage. Quickly jotted down my guess for the recipe. Ate it with some pork cracklings I brought with me.
Prices were higher than usual but judging from what I ate, it justified the price. The small resto is run by a mom and her daughter and it’s really popular. Total bill including a small bottle of Coke was TH 270, the most expensive meal I’ve had in this trip so more.
With such a heavy meal, I decided to walk to Wat Loko Molee outside the old city near Champuak. On the way, I discovered a lovely quiet wat, Wat Monthien. Actually, I needed to go to the toilet and I know that if there’s a wat, there are toilets.
This centuries-old wat is known for its beautiful wooden temple. I loved the very graceful roofs.
As always, ended the day with a massage at Chaya Spa but instead of the usual 2-hour hot oil massage, got a 1.5 hour aromatherapy massage followed by 30 minutes of Thai Herbal Compress. I’m gonna miss this place and the friendly owner.
