Why Do Thais Love Their Rice

Rice, in whatever shape or form, color or cooking technique, is Thailand’s most important staple food. Rice is an integral part of Thailand’s culture and its history, even more so than what bread is to western countries.

The importance of rice in Thai cooking and indeed, Thai culture can be put down to its incredible nutritious value –rice is a wonderful source of nourishment and it can be grown in huge quantities, which is why so many Asian countries are able to sustain such large populations when compared to similar sized countries in other parts of the world.

Thailand’s Homegrown Pride – Its Rice Produce

Did you know that virtually every Thai food uses rice? You might be surprised, but it’s true.

Sure, Thai people love to eat a bowl of noodles at lunchtime, but where do those noodles come from? Rice of course!

Noodles are made from three different types of rice: Guay Tiew Zen Yai (thick), Guay Tiew Zen Lek (narrow) or Guay Tiew Zen Mee (thin).

Even popular desserts come from rice. You might have tried the delicious Khanom Jeen on your travels in Thailand. This is made from rice flour, which can be made from either Khao Niew (sticky rice) or Paeng Khao Jao (a non-glutinous rice).

Quite simply, without rice, Thailand would be a very different place indeed!

Animals & Wildlife / Khao Yai National Park Turns 55
« Last post by Johnnie F. on September 18, 2017, 12:54:24 PM »


NAKHON RATCHASIMA — The country’s oldest national park turned 55 on Monday, an anniversary celebration joined by the world’s largest search engine.

Since Sunday night, users of Google.co.th can see a Google Doodle celebrating Khao Yai National Park’s birthday.

The doodle features flora and fauna found from the nation’s third-largest national park, such as hornbills, gibbons and gaurs. The eight slides depict scenes of animal life in the park from sunrise to sunset: Deer drinking river water in the morning, elephants marching under the sun and moths perching on blooms as twilight descends.

The slideshow is followed by search results for “Khao Yai National Park,” one of which is a poll asking which is their favorite animal in the park. As of Monday morning, the hornbill is taking the lead.

Located in Nakhon Ratchasima province, Khao Yai National Park was founded Sept. 18, 1962, at the urging of conservationist Boonsong Lekakul. Spreading over 2,100 square kilometers, the park receives annually more than a million visitors, who go there to see its wild elephants, visit the Haew Suwat Waterfall, trek through the jungle and stay overnight at camp sites to see civets and porcupines at night.

Google Doodles are local, temporary changes to Google’s search engine landing page to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and other events. For example, on April 1, Google published a doodle which celebrated animator Payut Ngaokrachang.

Korat Internet & Technology Forum / Unified autoplay

Google has announced that Chrome will mute the audio on videos and video ads which play automatically when you visit a website. You know the ones i mean that make you jump out the chair with fright :-[ with noise from adds when you visit a page.

Unified autoplay

Users watch and listen to a lot of media, and autoplay can make it faster and easier to consume on the web. However, one of the most frequent user concerns is unexpected media playback, which can use data, consume power, and make unwanted noise while browsing. To address this, Chrome will be making autoplay more consistent with user expectations and will give users more control over audio. Starting in Chrome 64, autoplay will be allowed when either the media won’t play sound, or the user has indicated an interest in the media. This will allow autoplay to occur when users want media to play, and respect users' wishes when they don't. These changes will ...

Korat News / Korat village threatened by elephants
« Last post by Johnnie F. on September 17, 2017, 07:39:23 PM »
NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Villagers of Ban Thung Takhian in tambok Khok Krachai in Khon Buri district of this northeastern province were sleepless last night as a herd of about five wild elephants appeared ready to attack, but were scared away by a number of Thap Lan National Park officials and soldiers from the 2nd Army's 3rd Artillery Battalion.

The officials were despatched to the village after being informed by villagers that their farms had been ravaged by elephants for about a week. The pachyderms destroyed their crops and threatened to attack the village.

An outpost was set up in the office of the village chief, where officials were placed on full alert. The villagers too remained awake throughout the night.

At about 9.30pm, elephants were heard approaching the village. The officials kept them at bay by hitting bamboo stems and setting off firecrackers - but whenever they stopped making noises, the elephants returned. Finally - at about 3.30am on Sunday - the elephants retreated and peace prevailed.

The officials said they would remain in the village until the situation returned to normal.
