Things I miss…

I have now been in Dublin for over five weeks and there are some things back home in Southern California (aka SoCal), that I am starting to miss:
1) Scruffy.
2) The Orange Circle.
3) My weird rock’n’roll friends, like Sean. Need I say more?
4) Renu Nakorn. There is no such thing as Thai food under $15 a plate here in Dublin-town. And there is certainly no such thing as Northern (Issan) Thai with sticky rice, papaya salad and beef larb. I know the first place I am going to after the plane touches down when I come home for Xmas.
(Whilst searching for Thai links, I found this recipe for Kangaroo Larb!)
Future Missing:
6) Looks like I will be missing Punk Rock Bowling 2006. Unfortunately, it falls on at the end of the semester and the start of serious writing of my thesis, which is due at the end of March, so I won’t be able to take the 5 or 6 days off to fly to Lost Wages. What happened to middle of February, it would have been much easier to leave at the beginning of the 2nd semester…

    Maybe I should start learning how to cook all those Isaan stuff, then you can come over to Munich (it’s still a lot more closer than the US) and I’ll cook them for ya…but like I said, I have to learn how to first. :p

    If you want some great Isaan food you really must get out of Norwalk and come to Thailand. Besides, $15 dollars will buy you a feast here.

    Hehehehe, yeah, I agree with BJHutch.
    I’m cooking Thai tonight, Gaeng Pah. I’ll take a photo and post it on my blog. 😉
