bangkok chef

bangkok chef with jalna & mich Finally got to meet Jalna of Photos by Jalna and her friend, Mich.

bangkok chef with jalna & mich Jalna's as crazy in person as on her blog...so funny!

What was so cool was that it was so easy to talk with both of them.

bangkok chef with jalna & mich We had originally planned to eat at Morning Glass, but they didn't have any tables open, so we ate at Bangkok Chef (next door) instead.

What was nice about this place is that they had lots of tables AND air-conditioning.

bangkok chef with jalna & mich Jalna treated us to spring rolls, chicken larb, penang curry, rad nah, thai iced coffee and Mich treated us to a pannacotta mango thingy (no photo) (thank you!).

Everything was so good!

lots of omiyage from jalna, mich, reader Ryan & V! And everyone was way too generous...Mich gave me these beef jerky chips.

lots of omiyage from jalna, mich, reader Ryan & V! Jalna's cousin, V, gave me these other beef jerky chips, gummy bears and crispies.

lots of omiyage from jalna, mich, reader Ryan & V! And reader Ryan gave me a homemade ohelo jam that his mom made! So nice. Brought back memories of when we were small and had to pick ohelo berries on the side of the road by the volcano on the Big Island.

lots of omiyage from jalna, mich, reader Ryan & V! Jalna gave me two handsewn bags that she made too...so creative, yeah?!

lots of omiyage from jalna, mich, reader Ryan & V! All in all, it was a great meet up, lots of talking and lots of eating.

Thank you everyone!
