A Piece of Thailand in PJ

If you are missing Thailand, yup, I meant food, language, people or snacks, you can pop by at Wat Chetawan (Thai Buddhist Temple) for a feel of Thai in the middle of Klang Valley. But you have to be there on a Sunday morning or afternoon.

This is when Thai people who resides in Malaysia will have stalls set up to sell Thai food and products along the street outside this temple.

Recently I went there to have a bowl of yummy Thai Koay Teow Soup (Flat Noodle Soup) after the Walk for Sight event. As the food is prepared by vendors who originated from Thailand, the authenticity of the food is retained. Not only was the food carries the flavour of Thailand, but the whole place feel like Thailand as some of the vendors only speak Thai. So are some of the temple visitors who were at the stall.

Check out this place if you happen to be in Jalan Gasing on a Sunday morning.

In the photo above, you can see grilled pork on skewers, Thai sausage, steamed glutinuous rice or white rice and Stir Fry Chicken with Basil available for take-aways. Mats are laid out on the grass behind the stall for clients who want to eat their food on the spot. It's so Thai to me!!!
What else is available at this mobile vendor stall?

Thai magazines

Thai noodles, fish sauce and various kind of sauces to prepare a Thai meal

Raw papaya to make a yummy Som Tam (Thai Papaya Salad) or Prickly Heat Talcum Powder, anyone?

Various kind of herbs, from left: Thai basil, a kind of herb that smells like 'petai' and sawtooth coriander were also available

A friendly Thai lady smiled for my camera as she picked her herbs

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
