A new one to add to the list is the pancake man.
First spotted cycling around the neighbour with his portable kitchen, honking his horn in the darkness of the night, our local pancake man is fast approaching the status of living legend in the Russell-Piankaew household.
Yes, you heard right, freshly made pancakes are practically delivered to our door.
I think part of his legacy is the mystery behind the man. Not one for conversation, he speaks neither Thai nor English and is incredibly timid although we've established he is from Myanmar.
Back to the important part, his pancakes are a delicious bargain at 9 baht (around 20p) each made fresh on the peddle-kitchen, smothered in sugar and butter.
Mr Pancake Man, I salute you and your sinfully sweet goodies.

There are, of course, more issues behind our beloved pancake man than just the deserts he sells.
As a immigrant from Burma, he is unlikely to be short of a tale or two and is probably living and working in the country illegally. Hopefully he is aware that, as recently posted, the Thai government has arranged an amnesty on illegal stayers until early next year.
