Cabbages & Condoms!

Ok, remember my preview?

Now.. don't go think wrongly ok? The picture's actually taken from a restaurant..

And the name of the restaurant is......


Yes... Cabbages & Condoms. I think it's a place catered to tourist coz when we reached there.. we don't see any Thai customers if you minus the ones where there's the young Thai girl and an old Ang Moh guy or something.

Ok.. it's very clear to see why the restaurant is named with a condom at the end coz most of the decorations are made from condoms and/or pill. I mean.. there's that hugeeeeee condom where it's made out of condoms (obviously). Or like... statues of people where the clothes are made out of condoms and pill. Stewie and the condom man.

The decoration on the lamp made out of condoms! Colourful ones. See! Can make flower some more!!!

I remember vaguely that there was also this statue of a guy... and the costume the guy was wearing was.... a superman costume! But of course, again... made out of condoms haha wtf. I don't think we took a picture of that though.

Another thing why I said it's more of the tourist attraction or whatever is coz the food there is not that spicy. Which is good for me and Stewie coz we don't like spicy food. Nah!!! Some of the food we ate.

What I like most, ok.. but this one's not as nice lah.. is the mango and sticky rice with coconut milk. The restaurant we went the night before ones were really really goooood. They even had their very own restaurant(home)-made coconut ice cream with uhh... jackfruit or something inside. But the one above is just vanilla ice cream. It seems that Thailand's vanilla ice cream is orange-y or caramel-ish like wan... not like.. white-ish.

Ok.. so, we were done with our food and we asked for the bill. You know when you ask for the bill, they will put sweets with the bill also? Well.. not this restaurant. With the bill, was four condoms. One for each of us.
And they're not just normal normal condoms! They're all flavoured condoms!!! We had two Chocolate Choco-Coconut and two Chocolate Choco-Orange.

And then as we were leaving for the hotel, walking out of the restaurant... we saw this!

Hahahahhahahaha... so cute.

"Sorry, we have no mints. Please take a condom instead!"

Then you will see the decoration of the box is the pill.. and inside the condoms.

Oh.. and there was also this poster ish like thingy.. which they also sell as T-shirts in their souvenir shop. Which is quite funny, I think it tells you when it's ok for you not to use a condom and when it's not.

Remember!!! Safety First!!!!

I guess this ends my trip to Bangkok.

p.s. There were like... at least 20 guys in the restaurant.. uhmm.. all ang mohs... dressed in jumpsuits and uhmm.. have a blonde wig. Some of them unzip their zipper till like low low and revealed their chest hair... and oh myyy they were sooo hairy. And there were stars on their jumpsuit!!

They looked something like this.
We think they might be some performers or something.. there were a looootttt of them. Forgive my drawing, I was lazy to draw the fingers.

very interesting posts!
but even though this restaurant's theme is condom, they are way too emphasis on condom!
btw did you check out whether the workers there wear condom, and uhmmm... they use condom to store foods?
