Going Raw

I have never eaten so many raw vegetables until I came to Thailand. I found it so weird at first to eat raw cabbage, eggplant, and string beans but I eventually got the hang of it. I have come to realize that these raw veggies usually come with a very hot and spicy meal or sauce, so it helps neutralize the taste. Not to mention that raw vegetables are usually sweet and crunchy so it gives your spicy meal an added flavor.

We have a joke that we are like goats eating grass when we are served with Thai food and those leaves+ raw vegetables. Its just good that Thais dont understand our language so we could laugh our hearts out without being understood! :)
If you want to know what I am talking about, here are photos to prove to you that we have indeed become goats in this country!

Raw bean sprouts, basil, mango leaves and cucumber (which is always eaten raw even in the Philippines where I come from)

Dip it in a spicy sauce! Perfect! (I cant remember what this raw veggie was)

This is called Yam Mama Yam means salad and Mama is a brand of an instant noodle. Yam Mama is mixed with raw cabbage, ipil-ipil, and lots of other greens!

I told you we have become grass eaters! Me-eh-eh!

Oops! Did I just sound like a goat?!

    I have always been teased as a goat Ray ever since pa jud kay back home, kusog kaayo ko mokaon jud ug green leafy veges. Kanang camote tops pinaka fave jud naku na. Lol. I havent eaten that much of raw veges too until I lived here in the US. Murag weird tan-awon nga raw ang kaonon pero kung i-halo na sila tanan with dressing, lami ra baya dayon. :D
