Today is the first day we start Song Kran Festival in Thailand, the festival that we splash water to refresh each other from the hot sunshine. After we enjoyed the festival, I think about food. haha :p

Believe it or not, we spent all day (8 hours) splashing water. Activities concerns with water really make us hungry and there is nothing that is better refreshing our stomach than cool Woon Maprao On or Young Coconut in Jelly. 🙂 So, when we got home, I ran toward the kitchen.

I also think about Coconut Milk Jelly for tomorrow 🙂
