Oslo Thai Food Fair 2011

Yesterday I spent the day at the big annual Thai Food Fair in downtown Oslo.

So much good food and amazing performances!

I'm so proud to be Thai-Norwegian.

Carving fruit

Jakob & Vidar

So many cute half-breeds walking around

One hell of a lip-syncer

Trying to get Vidar to smell my armpit,


Thai women are so hot!

Then suddenly the hottest (craziest) of them all showed up:

Mom went bananas and bought something from all of the food stalls.

Then I became a little star-struck running into Nantaya from Et lite stykke Thailand ("A small piece of Thailand") - a very successful documentary series about Thai women and their Norwegian families, that has been running for two seasons now on Norwegian television. And her husband, Lars Johan, seems to be the most sweetest old fella, completely stealing the charm of the show.

I love this show so much, in every episode there's both something that'll make you laugh out loud and something that'll move you to tears. So well made.

This show has made me even more proud of my mother, realizing the trials and tribulations she's been through living in this Godforsaken country, learning the language, working and going to school.

Utrolig kul blogg du har! Bildene er fantastiske, skulle gjerne ha vært der selv, da jeg elsker thai-mat, og Thailand ellers for den sags skyld. Vil bare slenge med at jeg også har trent ITF taekwon-do, riktignok kun fem år, men uansett kult :D
