At an up-country wedding #9

The meal, served under marquees erected next to the house ...first course served, and only 11 more to go...the food was excellent, and even included one course consisting of deep fried pork knuckle served with fermented cabbage [a reasonable attempt at acknowledging the Groom is from Germany].

 

The kitchen...under their own marquee...four workers and a manager...a very capable team.

Very happy people! I like the American gestures... thumbs up & peace! smile
Ray: The people of NE Thailand are...mostly...happy folks, Elizabeth. In Thailand National census questions they are always the people described as most happy.

I think The Romans might claim ownership of the now Universal Thumbs Up hand-sign.

I think the Brits might claim ownership of the now Universal V sign.

12 courses - what a fine meal - yes, we are the 'Krauts'7 cabbage- and German beer? The people look very happy!
Ray: The food was delicious, Philine, and I am pleased I did not eat breakfast earlier in the morning.

Twelve courses - strewth! But no doubt they will be sitting here for days to consume that little lot..
Ray: I ate pretty earnestly for about 2 hours, Chris, but most were still going at it steadily when I left.

I like the pretty pink hats on the table; are they like favours that we have at UK weddings? No doubt such a celebration will go on until the gusts have to move on to another excuse for a party.
Ray: Ha Ha

The pretty pink hats are actually plates, stacked upsidedown in a way that prevents them from filling with beetles and other insects, Alan.

Thai people love to eat!
How kind to try and produce some German food, however, my experience is to stick to what you know, it will not disappoint. The man in the blue shirt looks as if he has just won the jackpot Ray.
Ray: The "German" food was excellent, Chad, and the catering team won additional points for including it. There were 3 German men in the guest list, and all said it was good.

The man in the blue shirt does seem especially chuffed about something.
The best kind of wedding in my opinion - right in the back yard. Quite popular here too.
Ray: yes...I prefer backyard weddings/receptions, Mary...more relaxed and informal.
12 courses, that must be some meal. Everybody looks so happy don't they.
Ray: The meal was excellent, Brian! Up-country Thai folks like a party, especially if it involves large amounts of good food.
12 courses sounds like my sort of a do Ray
Ray: I think you would have enjoyed this meal, Bill.
i would not be shocked if you said that wedding catering was a billion baht industry, Ray.
