I've been a follower of Khun ถนัดศอ's column for a long while.

This one also sounds great but I kinda felt strange about this one.

Quoteนโยบายหลักของร้าน "ลี เพลส" คือเน้นเรื่อง ความสะอาด ถูกสุขลักษณะ คุณภาพของวัตถุดิบ และความพิถีพิถันในการปรุง ตามสูตรที่คุณ Sandra ได้รับการถ่ายทอดมาจากคุณตาคุณยายที่ฮ่องกง
หมูแดง ต้องคัดสรรเนื้อหมูคุณภาพดี หมักกับเครื่องปรุง เครื่องยาจีน และน้ำมันหอยอย่างดี อบในหม้ออบพิเศษ เพื่อให้ได้หมูแดงที่นุ่ม หอม รสชาติอร่อย
หมูกรอบ ใช้วิธีการอบให้กรอบ แทนการทอด ทำให้ไม่อมน้ำมัน และรักษาคุณค่าอาหารได้มากกว่า
น้ำราดหมูแดง เป็นสูตรเด็ดที่มีรสชาติเข้มข้น และกลิ่นหอมจากเครื่องปรุง เครื่องยาจีน และน้ำมันหอย ต่างจากสูตรที่ทำกันทั่วๆ ไป


To me, it's not only ต่างจากสูตรที่ทำกันทั่วๆ ไป but is different to the majority of this kind of food in Hong Kong.  But wait, I thought they claim this "ได้รับการถ่ายทอดมาจากคุณตาคุณยายที่ฮ่องกง" while her grand parents worked in restaurants in Hong Kong.

I think the food may be good but I don't think it will satisfy the urge if you felt like you want to have Hong Kong style barbecue meat with rice and noodle.

This, to me, sounds more like Singaporean or Thai style which is closer to Tae Chew or Fukien (hokkien) style than that of Hong Kong. The gravy that top the barbecue meat rice in Hong Kong is only from soy sauce + some sweetener, ie sugar or some sweetened  or black soy sauce, mostly. (BTW, black soy sauce in Thailand is much sweeter than that of Hong Kong too).

Anything that thicken the sauce is definitely not come from Hong Kong as Hong Kong style loves to boast the taste of raw material and avoid the 'coverup' of the taste with thick and strong sauce like what we have mostly in Thailand.

I guess all I want to say is that this is rather misleading if one thinks it's Hong Kong style.  Nevertheless, it could taste real good in its own way!
Yeah we knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how

I live with my relative krub.I'm already have everything (include Thai food yum yum :) ) now I waiting for my social card that I can open bank account and find some job to work.Around september I'll take english course and try on TOEFL krub.

About TV,I try to listen to them but.... still can't get it some accent, word, phase or spelling.Yes meaning too.haha

I got very bad allergy.First time I think about move down to Florida but after hear from K Karin that south had a lot of pollen too so I decide still trying to live in NY for a while.(Well I think pollen and carpet is cause my allergy) Right now I'm better leaw krub :)

Thx k lapath for ask about me krub. I still don't know what should I do next.(Still scare to do na krub,Like go to Manhattan or going somewhere)

QuoteAbout TV,I try to listen to them but.... still can't get it some accent, word, phase or spelling.Yes meaning too.haha

About TV, try listening to news first because that’s the official accent.  To me, that’s the fastest way in learning English.  Repeat after the sentence that sounds interesting.  Sound crazy!  But it works for me. :D

The evening news on the major networks like NBC, CBS or NBC is the one you should try first, then morning program like Today on NBC.  Fox news is also becoming more famous and its late news starts earlier than other networks around 10PM, I guess, while others are mostly at 11PM before those late night show like Lettermen (on CBS) and Leno (on NBC) starts.  I typically watch all these programs 'through' when I first land there to learn what exactly going on over there.  I think it's even more channel for you to watch as you're in New York.

Later, the sit-com is the best to really understand the language as it shows you how they use the language in different situation.  It's easier to speak the language if you understand more of what's happening over there, the culture, etc.

New York has its own accent that is not easy to listen to, particularly for the person that recently comes from other countries.  Most English in movie that we saw in this part of the world are more or less not New Yorker accent krub.  At first, it sounds difficult but I’m sure you get used to it or may get used to it.  

Also, American spoken in this part of the world are artificially made to become so slow it's not the pace that people talk in New York.  Everything in Thailand was made slower, advertising, talking, etc. That's why even though you know english, it will take sometime to get used to the real American.  But take time.  If you don't continue to hang around Thai speaking people to much, you get it.  

Also, your relative may seem not to be so helpful as you expect from a Thai.  Don't blame them.  They have things to do there and there is no time for them to spend.  A courtesy of allowing you to stay with them is already considered great.  Nobody will babysit you like in Thailand and that's not meaning rude.  Different places have different way of doing thing.  For the US, YOU GOTTA ASK FOR HELP AND DON'T BE SHY!!!.  Nobody will look after you and try to make sure you get necessary help.  In a way, it's easy.  If you don't know, ASK.  If you don't ask, nobody will bother you.  Learn it.  It's the way there

It’s true that the pollen is the major problem in the south.  I was caught by surprise for the first time I see yellow particle covered my car like a carpet, making my car’s color pattern look more like a yellow polka dot.  All those yellow things are pollen.

However, it mostly happens in Spring for a short period of time.  Also, I don’t think it goes as far as Florida.  To me, Florida is as hot and humid like Bangkok though the quality of air is much better.

I also doubt about carpet too unless the house you stay in really stuffy.  I wouldn’t be surprised if you felt that way in the UK where mold can easily grow inside your house.  But for New York, it will depend on where you stay krub.

Go to drugstore and get some allergy medicine.  It should help.  I think Claritin is less drowsy than most brands.

QuoteThx k lapath for ask about me krub. I still don't know what should I do next.(Still scare to do na krub,Like go to Manhattan or going somewhere)


Manhattan is nothing to be scared of.  In a way, it’s a big city like Bangkok.  Something that I do when I was there.

1.  Don’t go over 100th Street and Harlem.  You have no business there.  This is a warning from my White American friends a long while ago.  However, things change as these days the economy is good and the economic level in the African American communities is better, even in Harlem.  So, ask someone if it’s OK to go.  There is a very rich cultural thing in the area krub.  However, if you know nobody to ask, just avoid it for now.

2.  When in Subway, try not to look too much on all those homeless or strange people.  In the US, your look means an invitation for them to come talk and, likely, bother you.  As you’re foreigner and the first time in there, it will be scary.  The thing to do is ‘NOT’ look at them, just walk pass them in normal pace like New Yorker, not Thai people lingering on the street.  Also, act cool.  Don’t show that you’re scare off them.  Act as if nothing happens and they are not there.

3.  After 8PM, the subway may be scarier as most worker leaves town.  However, New Yorker will not scare with all those homeless in the subway.  Just act cool when you go places.  Stay in the crowd or the area they said they monitor you.  Most of the time, things are fine.  Just don’t do something silly and try to be street smart, look out and stay alert.

4.  If you’re really new, try to stick with the tourist district and don’t venture too far to unfamiliar territory.  My simple place to go for newbies is around Rockefeller center and Empire State Building during the day and Time Square in the evening.

5.  If you want to ask for help, look for officer.  It's commonsense but you need to take this in mind at the beginning.

I think commonsense help.  We are from big cities too so please use it.  It’s not really scary at all.  After a while, you may like it too.

Manhattan may sound daunting to go in at the beginning.  However, I find most New Yorker quite helpful as most of them are not native there so they know what newcomer has been through.  Just need to know who to ask!

Have fun and let all of us over here know if we could be of help.

Glad to hear that you seemed to be in a good hand. :)

Enjoy life to the fullest krub.  There's lots of things to do there.  Go out, keep it cool and have lots of fun.  Don't go where you're not supposed to go and things will be more than OK.  If you survive in Bangkok, you should survive Manhattan and New York.  They're all big cities and you should live as such.
