  • HIYA! I'll be in Bangkok from Sep 18th or 19th and will be there or about a week. If anyone will be free to talk or to run around with me, let me know. I'm on the hunt for some Zen Buddhism or other really cool places, like ... and this one is a long shot too, but Taoist teachers, Sufis (I'm pretty sure Thailand's got some) (ภาษาไทยว่า ซูฟีย์ ผมค่อนข้างจะชัวร์ว่ามีนะ), or even Christians doing a contemplative practice using meditation.

I'll head to a Buddhist temple either in Krabi or Kanchanaburi after I leave Bangkok.

So, this idea might not do it for you, but I figured I'd toss it in the pot, er ... blender!

Blenders

Blenders .... I'm looking at various ones I can get here in Thailand, and there seems to be some very decent choices. Right now, Lotus in Hat Yai has an OTTO BE-127 for 2100 baht! (And Lazada online website has it for 2000.) The specs compare favorably with the two big names, for FAR less money. I realize, being made in Thailand (NOT China!) helps keep costs down. The only thing that suggests to me that this is not nearly as good as a Vitamix or a Blendtec is the one year warranty as opposed to…
