Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand have received many criticisms all over the world when they launched their “charcoal donuts.” Although its CEO denied the campaign to be racist, many people think it was. Ignoring all the controversies, they went on with their campaign and I must say it did very well!

Like many Asian countries, Thailand has this culture of perceiving white as beautiful– but the people thought that these black donuts look inviting enough and Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand have seen breakthrough in their sales when these intriguing donuts were displayed on the stands.
Before leaving Thailand, our friends came to visit us at the house and brought us a box of these black beauties!
I loved them all! My conclusion? Black is beautiful… and yummy too!
When we went to the floating market last weekend, I could not help but be interested in these very colorful treats. It’s actually nothing special, it’s the equivalent of our puto maya in the Philippines except that these ones are colored.
I love those shades of pastel!
Topped with sweet coconut milk
I don’t know how they call this in Thai, but we all enjoyed it for dessert! These sweets could also be enjoyed with ripe mangoes.

I blogged about our time at BKK Grill for Mother’s Day last August 12 here.
So what did we have?
Mushroom soup for 25 THB / .83 USD)
Salad with dressing at 50 THB/ 1.66 USD
Beef cheeseburger with fries and salad at 85 THB / 2.83 USD
It was really one sumptuous meal… we went home with full stomachs, and with hearts filled with praises. I, in particular was so grateful for that simple celebration of Mother’s Day. If my heart could make a sound, it would be “burp!”
