Food tasting the most favorite part.
The cooking session with fellow bloggers was a huge success.

This is Ms. Gay Carillo a blogger/Ph.D./author of who teached and shared to us the recipe. She stayed for a month in Thailand and took some cooking lesson there.

Here are the ingredients we used for Pad Thai recipe

Papaya Salad (Som Tam)

Aside from Pad Thai, Gay also teached us how to prepare
Papaya Salad a thai recipe
as well, very easy to prepare.
This one is spicy but bearable,
sour taste with a mixture of sweetness.
Good for appetizer.

It was a happy Sunday to all of us. We had fun for the cooking, eating and photoshoot session. We went home with a smile on our face.
