This is Irene and Chloe reporting to you again on all matters Thailand. Last night, we forgot to yak about a life changing and enlightening experience that did not include Buddha. Ben (our prophet) introduced us to our new God, also known as Roti. Roti consists of a thin bread dough, a fried egg, bananas, condensed milk and of course sugar. How does one make a Roti, you might ask? Well this process draws many parallels to the well known eight-fold path in Buddhism. First one must enter the Roti preparation zone, where one must meditate on the experience that is about to unravel and change your life. Secondly, one must stretch out the dough on a hot surface and lay it on oil. Then you fry up the egg right on top of it and allow it to spread and fry. After that, one must slice up the bananas and lay them on top of the egg. Then you fold it up and allow it to soak up in its deliciousness. Later remove it from the oil and lay it down so one can cut it up and prepare it. Now one must pour the condensed milk and sugar over God. Served with all the blessings in the world, God (Roti) is the best dish we’ve had so far in Thailand. It is crucial to be mindful and eat God slowly to soak up the spiritual experience. Apart form being delicious, God has opened our mind to street food in general, seeing as how initially one is hesitant to try new things.
IF YOU ARE EVER IN A SITUATION WERE SOMEONE SO GREAT (BEN) OFFERS YOU SOME ROTI, EAT IT. REALLY.
