    Kitchens in Thailand

    Now kitchens are quite important cos we store all our food there, and food is quite nice, well unless I cook it.

    Now rich people are differant from us poor people, they generally have 2 kitchens, one for smelly Thai crap which is generally an outside or near enough outside kitchen, then they have there foking expensive euro style kitchen.

    Anyway this first kitchen is a Euro one which cost about 800,000baht, i mean fok me it wont cost me that much to build me first 3 bed bungalow, but us poor people aint going to be spending that sort of money on a kitchen.

    This kitchen is about 3 meters by 3 and half meters, ok its got a 50k fridge in it and that but hell, it's still a lot of money for something that you may use once perday, and if thats for breakfast all you need is a toaster and a kettle.

    This is made from mdf, which really aint suitable for this humidity, but it does have beautifull granite tops.

    pics starting from the left of the kitchen and working to the right.

    My mates have had theirs made from stainless steel. Quite cheap really and it'll last forever.

    This kitchen we made last year, this includes a walk in cold room, at a rough guess it must have cost a couple of million baht.
    the fridge freezer was 100k.

    a pic from the door of it nearly finished, the door to the left is the entrance to the cold room, next to that is a glass door which goes into the walkway to the front garden, there is a door to the right which leads to the main area of the living room, and a door to the left which leads to the back garden and swimming pool, the door i took the pic from leads to the dining area.

    Now look at that lovely granite, the red is slightly sloped so if liquid is spilt on the counter it drains off into the sink, things don't get classier than that.

    Nice kitchens there, but what a pain in the ass to keep all this shiny surfaces clean and flashing.

    And I agree, the use of MDF in a kitchen is more than controvertial, but if it's to toast two piece of bread now and then it will not be a big problem.

    Must admit it looks nice, but too many things squeezed in there - not nearly enough working area.

    Yes, I saw that, but that's more a preperation area. My mate who's sitting next to me right now commented on it. He's a cordon-bleu chef from the UK on holiday here and just cooked us a fcuking excellent meal this evening

    Now we're emptying my drinks cabinet.

    You need working space around your hobs as you dont want to be swinging around with pots and pans to get to your working space.

    To the right of the deep fat fryers is also working space, the ovens are less than 1 meter away from the counter aswell.

    That is one of them "just-in-case" kitchens where the owner has got too much money, a wealth showing monument.

    Just in case someone comes to look inside my house..
    Just in case I feel like eating home instead of eating out..

    I'm sure it will be in mint condition ten years later.
    The voices in my head are mostly kind, I also like the music.
