The Eighth Wonder of the World on Video
As a follow up to my last post One Giant Leap Backwards – Thai Style American Breakfast I can now present on video what I refer to as the Eighth Wonder of the World. A Thai girl eating a full English breakfast with jam on toast, which is one more reason why they call the Land of Smiles, Amazing Thailand.
On the last morning of my recent Thailand holiday Wonderful Wi and myself popped into the Irish Clock Bar in Udon Thani for a full English breakfast. Three quarters of the way through her meal Wilai buttered a slice of toast, spread jam on it, and then placed it on her plate. Sensing a magical moment I grabbed my camera and Wilai knew what was coming next.
When the camera rolled Wilai went into a fit of giggles and got a bit shy but after a couple of video takes, some ‘egg-ing’ on by me, and a thin slice of ‘ham’ acting from the girl herself, Beyond The Mango Juice can now display a video of the Eighth Wonder of the World, a full English breakfast with jam on toast.
Wilai’s going to go mad when she views this, but when you’ve captured the Eighth Wonder of the World on film then you’re kind of obliged to let it go global.
