Isaan LOVE Box!!!!

Introducing The Isaan Love Box (not the official name of "katip/klong kao"): This container is made out of wood and bamboo. Everyone in Isaan (the Northeast aka the place where I live and teach) owns one of these to keep and transport their sticky rice ("kao knee-ao").

Just another ordinary lunch meal in the language and social studies office.

A different angle of our feast...I mean lunch table.

From left to right:
Ajan Glenda, Ajan Pimsilee, Ajan Wasanna, Ajan Watchara, Ajan Oradee, Ajan Pipat, Ajan Pranee

is the Thai word for Teacher.
