From Siam with love

Met Panida Rintanalert, the lady who owned this delightful store in Bangkok, sometime in the early 90s.

Modern styles in women’s clothing with a strong traditional influence and exclusively in silk, cotton and linen, mostly hand-woven.

The French ambassador’s wife is a customer.

She put her nieces through university in Australia and handed over the reins to her niece Yin Lertsuranont a few years back.

So it’s always a treat to pop in to catch up and especially cool to get to hit the town with Yin and her sister Lian the other night. (They’re quite delightful, btw..)

Ending up in the renowned Mont Nomsod milk bar which the current king frequented as a young man.

Not sure if he went for the hot green tea with sweetened milk, the butterfly pea milk with lime (changes colour according to the ph value…) or the steamed bread with butter and corn.

All very……..interesting….
