    Yaa Dong..crazy drink recipe. Try this at home.

    Ok... After witnessing a friend get extremely shitfaced in a short space of time after downing 10 shots of 'Yaa Dong' and hearing of another spewing up over an innocent Canadian due to what I suspect was 'Yaa Dong', curiosity has got the better of me...

    I needed to try this stuff.

    Recipe:

    Step 1 - go pharmacy and buy some 'Eleven Tiger' herby mix and go 7-11 to buy some 'Lao Kao' whiskey...





    Step 2 - crush up the '11 Tiger' herby mix and place together with the whiskey in a jar...






    Step 3 - decide that one bottle looks a pathetic amount in the big jar you bought.... Go pharmacy and 7-11 again for 3 more packets of 11 Tiger herby mix and 3 more bottles of Lao Kao whiskey....


    Step 4 - repeat step 2 with the extra ingredients...



    Step 5 - leave the resultant 'Yaa Dong' mixture for a minimum of 2 days before drinking the devils juice...



    Total cost... Lao Kao whiskey is 69 baht per bottle and 11 Tiger herby mix is 12 baht per packet.
    Total = not that much baht

    There was also a tale not that long ago of a group of bar girls all becoming posessed by strange ghostie goolie things and generally going a bit nuts after a session on this stuff... It has to be tried.

    .................................................. .....................

    I did try it out just before coming offshore to work, matching 'Speccy Brace Face' measure for measure for about 8 rounds... She can definately hold her drink but she felt the effects more than I did...

    It is happily maturing in the jar until I return from this work stint now, so I will conduct further research when I return...

    ^ I've seen the stalls with all the jars on around Pattaya markets.... Different vintages of Yaa Dong and different herbs....

    Can any of it make you high or is it just a drunk as a skunk feeling that takes over?

    My wife makes it with the real dried herbs like a big bag of crisps, keeps the 'local visitors happy , but I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

    I feel pretty cool dispensing small glasses of it and watching them deteriorate rapidly right before my eyes.

    Our local village shop makes a mean Yaa Dong, and for 90 Bht a bottle I'm quite happy to leave the preparation to them.

    I had some Yaa Dong over Christmas. The suff that my mate's father in law brought wasn't too strong (it felt around 25-30&#37, but it was quite nice.

    You'd have to make your own concoction.
    Yaa Dong is said to have medicinal properties, but the claimed effects are pretty general, such as for back-pain, 'strong' health, or supposed to be some miracle viagra.

    ^ Some natives do swear by it... The gf claims it's good for the appetite and says her mum has a glass of it every day.

    I was hoping it would get me high but I might have to add some green herb to it for that effect...

    According to Isaan lore, it gives the man big 'power'.

    When I made a variety of this, I didn't realise you have to sieve it, and take the twigs and bits of wood and bark out.

    Also apparently it has to be sugared.

    Hi rawlins, nice thread, I must give it a go when I get home, lost around Patts, but nothing like having some at home to kick the party off.
    Just as a matter of interest do you work offshore Asia? I work offshore Brazil and would love to get work closer to home.

    I get shunted around different boats all over the place - but never been offshore Asia yet... Offshore Brazil right now, Gulf of mexico a few times before this trip... (sometimes West Africa and North Sea also..)

    My company doesn't pick up much work in Asia just now but I'd love to cut down on the travel days...

    Hope you don't mind me asking Rawlins, but what is it that you do exactly?

    ^ I sit on oilfield survey boats bluffing my way through data processing and charting of data for pipeline surveys done by ROVs (Remote Operated Vehicles)... Pretty boring but it allows a decent time off and can live anywhere...

    ^ Righto gottcha, Cheers. Figured it might be something in the oil industry. I know few guys up here in CM that are involved in some capacity or the other - mostly the month on, month off type of deal.

    ^ Yup... Thailand is a good option for us 'rig pigs' and 'oilfield trash'....

    I don't know how I survived so many years in Scotland before I took the move... Never been happier..

    ^ Actually just thinking about it now, two of my neighbours (one nextdoor, one across the road) are in oil - or at least were. Unfortunately the guy across the road suffered a massive heart-attack and died recently.

    Also there's one other guy about 6 houses down who's also in oil. And that's just on one Soi, who knows how many others throughout the moo-baan!

    ^ Yeah, I wouldn't recommend it either. Might have seemed like a good idea to him at the time but it resulting in that whole permanent death thing has got to be a bit of a downer.
