Sweet corn with minced beef potato cakes

I love thai food very much, like spring rolls, green curry chicken, satay sticks, pat Thai and so on.  They are all yummy dishes.  Last month, my daughter and I went to Bangkok for a three-day short break.  The weather was very lovely.  We went shopping, enjoyed the tasty dishes and had great and relaxed spa and massage.  We chose a buy-one-get-one free package on the first day, we could personalize our spa and massage experience, such as choosing the aroma and facial scrub we like, room temperature, etc.  Then we tried the four-hand massage on the second day.  After the massage, we were taken back to the reception and seated at the table for our afternoon tea.  We enjoyed it very much. 


I really miss Thailand a lot.  Even I share my lovely experience with my friend this morning.  She said she likes going there with me in the near future.  Hope we can have time to be together at Thailand soon! The dish I prepared is served with Thai sweet chili sauce.  Yum! Yum!
