    Jay Festival - Thailand

    Well, once again we are in the middle of "Jay" season and William is on a veggie diet. I really like the noddles this time of the year, but I understand that I have something like this to look forward to tonight:







    so, do you lot participate in the Jay festival?

    Is that because people don't question you when you are on your hands and knees eating the grass?

    It's a period when one should abstain from indulging in anything too flavoursome...hence no meat...no strong-smelling veges like garlic...no sex...WILLIAM PLEASE NOTE...

    much like Khao Phansa for Buddhists or Lent for Christians...

    A wonderful time to try vegetarian food - I walked through China Town one time during the Jay Festival and I put on several kilos. The Sala Paos(?) - the stuffed dough thingys - were especially delicious.

    Vegetarian - you can have eggs, (normal) milk but Jay, you can't. Jay is more serious.
