Viengping Children’s Home was established in 1986 as a baby care unit attached to the Chiang Mai Boys’ Home, and is under the auspices of the Department of Public Welfare. The home was extended in 1988 to care for all orphaned children in the Northern region before being changed in 1997 to cater to babies and children up to the age of six years, and girls aged seven to 18 years.
The home also cares for children who are HIV-positive from birth and children orphaned as a result of the deaths of AIDS-infected parents. Viengping was the first orphanage in Thailand to take in children with HIV and initially accepted children from across the country. Other homes have followed its lead, and Viengping now cares for infected children from the 17 Northern provinces.

Loy Kratong at Lake House – Bangkok

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Loi” means “to float” and a “Kratong” is a raft. Thai people believe that floating a raft on the river is to honor and pay respect to the goddess of water. Make sure that if you launch your raft in a river it is made out of bread, as it will degrade more quickly. Also, floating a raft in the river is to apologize to the “goddess of water” for the bad things we have done to the river during the past year, and they are numerous, as most bodies of water are used as a sewer hereabouts.

Foie Gras Cupcakes by SPARKLES at Be Your Guest, September 9, 2010 – Bangkok

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

SparklesWhy not Foie Gras…

Sometimes, having a simple and good idea leads to amazing creations… That is how Sophie of Sparkles, the famous Bangkok cupcakery as recommended by Be your Guest, has created the Foie Gras Cupcake. It’s an incredible association of good ingredients: a chocolate espresso genoise topped with a frothy butter cream of duck foie gras with pinches of black pepper, sea salt and chili. At the first bite, taste of chocolate and espresso comes into your mouth. Followed by, an emphasis of foie gras flavor, Sea salt and pepper, a savory balance of salty and sweet. It’s named Desired Red Diamond because it’s exclusive and hard to find… (They are not available at the store except by Special Order Only)
