Photos by MJ Klein – lots more where these came from!
A-Nune grilling sticky rice, Isaan style
It was frigging cold! So cold we put the grill on the table. Later we put it under the table!
My poor wife was freezing!
I took a slight departure from Thai rum and drank Suntory whisky for the occasion. I also tried it with Saspirilla since it’s been some time since I tried it. Not bad!
The usual suspects were onhand, but then it got too cold and we used the grill to heat our hands.
Inside, our friends were enjoying hot pot.
Soon it became apparent that no matter how much we drank, put on clothes, added charcoal to the fire – it was just too cold to continue outside!
So we headed down to Shau-hui’s disco, The Thai Star
If I said that the disco was loaded with beautiful Thai girls dancing, it would be an understatement!
They were all dancing right in front of my table! I had the D80 with my SB-800 and I gave them a workout!
Clicking on any one of these photos will open the photo page where you can browse many other photos not shown. Many photos of Thai girls too.
This is Shao-hui (right) looking great as usual. The other woman looks nice too!

Now when I said that the women were dancing near my table, I want you to know I was telling the truth! This next shot was taken from my table. All I did was stand up and point the camera down:
Poor me, huh?
But it was kinda like being in Jr. High School for the first few hours though – with the women on one side….
…. and the men dancing with themselves on the other side. ???
Our table had pitchers of Sang Som and Coke, pre-mixed for your drunken pleasure.
Mr. Noom didn’t move all night. But he sure did drink.
Hard as it was, I stayed at my post and performed my duty as a photo-journalist in order to bring these images to our blog readers.
All the while my wife demonstrated a world of patience while I walked around and shot nearly 400 photographs that night. Hui-chen, you’re the greatest!
