The best Pea and Ham soup in Phuket - Crust


This is an odd selection of dishes to have in Phuket but this is rather an odd story.  I was in the Phuket International Hospital recovering from something which I cannot remember and I asked my wonderful wife to get me some real food to help my recovery.

I apologise to the Phuket International Hospital their care is wonderful but the food is not the same.

So my wonderful wife nipped over the road to Crust and purchased some Pea and Ham Soup on take-away and it was wonderful!

We have visited there a number of times now and I do have the soup again. So if you ever need 'that soup' Crust is the place to visit.


 


Thai Student swears at foreign teacher



"Foul mouthed teen sparks anger"

A twitter and then the headline in the Bangkok Post caught my eye (25 July 2014).

"I'm scolding you and you still don't look at me. Animal! Monitor Lizard? Look at me!"

"You're wearing black. Are you going to your father's funeral?"

As I read the comments below I found it interesting but not really inspiring - similar to teaching any child of this age but we now live in a world of social media and people who want to share insults like this are likely to get caught - the same as a person claiming disability benefit in the UK and then being 'tagged' on facebook dancing.

Then the comments made by some readers - 

"I am a foreign teacher and I am not afraid to comment or condemn this mindless moron. If he were my student he would be straight out the door by the scruff of his neck until he had learnt some manners..."

Then the comments got started to be.....

What was of interest was that a comment was made further down the list - 




this was an apology posted by the child on youtube. (June 2013)

The focus of the article was now lost for me...

Who do you trust?
Was it the same child?
Is it the same story?

Discarded materials and beach life



Cleaning the beach today and please tell me how we are looking after the habitat of this animal?



What did you do today to help?



What can you do tomorrow to help?

Think twice before you discard something and think twice when you walk past some rubbish (however small) which is discarded on the beach.
