the outdooor theme of the restaurant certainly a different twist, wish they could have this in KL. if you are one of the corny sucker, for sure, this is on of the place for you to go for the romantic date.other than the good embience, the food rocks too. being colonise, there are some western influence in the menu, but being in Thailand, there are no question but to go to the thai food, and no, it never fail to delight my tastebud. its not one of those fancy restaurant that have great setting but upsetting food, this place have both the food and the embience.
my highlight is, that Hillary have visited the place during bill was still in the house, yes hillary of the clinton visited the place before during a thai festival.
we were greeted with this lady playing er hu, its like a carnival, with latern, and few other vans coming, bringing the guests to the place. it cost around rm 30-rm 4o per person for the show.
once registed, we were ushered into the dinner place. its a big hall and have a stage for the performer. while they serve us the food, the show started. although its hard to understand whats the story,i can see the fine dance move by the dancer. don get me wrong, the show have english subtitles, just perhaps its too abstract for me personally.
after dinner, we were invited outside to see performance by the tribe members. there are quite a few tribe members that perform.
being able to visit does put things in perspective here. well, things in the village and their standard of living might not be ideal to urban folks, and there are some of them, the young ones leave the village to find job in the city. words cant describe it, but i guess its kinda of a humbling experience for me personally and its one of those things that you should experience it by yourself.
its not bad actually. at the hot spring. here they sell the chicken and quil egg, where we can boil it for a few minutes and it tasted like, well... egg.
its erm... maybe not the safest place to go, but its quite an experience to be here. a lot of imitation things that are sold here, and you can get ANYTHING here. from fake ciggarate, and people come to you and sell you viagra and porn.
the great Mekong. learn it in geography class, never cross my mind either that i would be here. and never that i expect my dad would agree to seat in such boat. well, he is not the most advanterous person and easily paranoid for safety, but he just being a parent.
