When the chilies are heating up your a**hole and all the basil leaves ruined your taste buds and all the lemongrass has clogged your sinuses, a trip to McDonald's is always a treat!
Foreign tourists are always surprised to see McDonalds for the first time in Thailand. Especially when they see this;
Ronald is buck ugly here and I hate looking at his buck ugly face! But something is endearing about him as he is doing the Thai “wai”. A "wai" is a Thai traditional gesture of greeting, show respect, yadda,yadda,yadda...Well ok, he kinda looks cool and I kinda like what he’s trying to do BUT he’s still buck ugly! --Take that!
Our Little Treasures is the topic for the day and I wanted to feature some other things but buck ugly Ronald doing the Thai wai is worth mentioning. No other Ronalds do this in other parts of the world!
Here’s a menu sample, written in both Thai and English…so don’t be such an a**hole going: “Oh my gosh, they don’t have any clue of what I just said in English! Blah, blah, blah!” drama. McDonalds in Thailand speaks English. Or at least mumbles what sounds to be like English. There!
Yes, you got it right at Value Meal No.1! A Samurai Pork Burger…whatever. I really don't get it. Was it death by samurai? Poor pig. I bet you don’t have that on your local menus? LOL! I don’t eat pork and I don’t plan to either but my friends say it’s horrrrriiiibbbblllllleeee par excellence! This horrendous burger is our equivalent to national signatures like McSpaghetti in the Philippines (yes, they have spaghetti, you didn’t know?!), or the McHuevo in Montevideo (that’s in Uruguay, baby and it means McEgg LOL).
I won’t even start with the Indian McDo without any beef on their menu, that’s understandable BUT I really don’t get the Samurai Pork Burger here. Shouldn’t this be in McDo Japan? Shucks!
(Thai McDo signage in Thai script and some "unbelievably amused" tourists.)
Isn’t it time for Malaysia to come up with a McLaksa? Or a McGado-gado in Indonesia? Or a McHainanese Chicken in Singapore!--wait, I think they do have that already? Why didn't the Filipinos came up with a McAdobo instead?... I would love to try a McPho in Vietnam! Yum-yum! Burmese McMohinga, anyone? That should be a hit!
Nonetheless, keeping with the main theme of this blog, here’s the compulsory tip on where to go and display yourself and be seen. These are the McDo branches in Bangkok with the most traffic of beautiful babes and gorgeous dudes: Ekkamai Town Center (because that's where I go and the nearest to me), CP Tower Silom, Amarin Plaza Rachadamri, Robinson’s Silom, Robinson's Asoke and Siam Center. Did I miss anything? Let me know.
