It's good to be back! Well, the last 4 days went by in a blur....
My business associate treated us to a nice seafood dinner the evening we arrived. The next morning, we were at his factory and surprise, surprise... the camera crew was there shooting his company's advertisement. More details below...
The first thing that struck us was the frenzied pace of traffic in the city. It was pure mayhem! I'm glad I didn't have to drive in a place where even crossing the street is a challenge.
We had dinner at this seafood restaurant that's very popular with the tourists and local business people.
The flower crabs cooked in a sweet-sour tamarind sauce were absolutely delicious! We ate grilled scallops, squid and other seafood too.
The crew was producing an advertisement for the factory and they wanted me to appear as their satisfied customer. So here I was, giving my testimonial. If I had known, I would have dressed more appropriately!
We went to my associate's palatial house. He's such a hospitable host, we were treated to a spread of tropical fruits including durian, jackfruit, dragon fruit, chikus and the 'milk' fruit (above) which I tasted for the first time. It was sweet and tasty.
In the afternoon, we walked around the city, taking in the sights and witnessed the most amazing sunset!
