Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Cabbages and Condoms

Shopping in the never ending markets of Bangkok can be exhausting. There are roads and roads of stalls, malls and malls of floors with everything one can imagine, just reproduced a million times over. So one of the rewards of all this consumerism is a good meal and this restaurant is one of the famous ones in Bangkok.

The restaurant has a very firm and clear purpose other than feeding hungry foreigners and that is to promote safe sex and family planning. It generates income to support development activities of the Population and Community Development Association. As a side line it does great food in a wonderful setting among these eye catching models with a message all over them.
These models are dressed solely in condoms.

Condoms come with your bill too.
They cover the lamps, they are on the mugs sold in the shop, they are widely promoted and the wonderful thing is that this effort has been largely succesful with Thailand having a very high rate of condom use which of course not only prevents unwanted pregnancies but protects women against sexually transmitted disease.
Oh and the food was excellent.
