Someone once pointed out to me that the word Som Tum is Thai and not Lao, I guess to be politically correct I should just call it by the name of the dish. This is what I had for Lunch at my dad’s house, I made it myself. The dish is a combo of Tum Mak Houng, Lao eggplants, and string beans. I think my image is going downhill, this was taken at f/8, 1/3sec, ISO-100, 50mm focal length, Aperture Priority program. I want to improve my photography and open for any suggestion.
Ingredients: shredded papaya, sliced Lao eggplants, string beans, cherry tomatoes, chili peppers, sliced lime, garlic cove, brown sugar, fish sauce, and shrimp paste.
We also had Gang Dang, my second sister made this one. This was taken at f/11, 1/4sec, ISO-100, 58mm focal length, Aperture Priority program.
I went to pick crab apple to pickle and decided to make Tum crab apple in the late afternoon. This dish is good if you made it bold and spicy. I can’t say it’s good for your stomach but mine is ironclad so I’m good. This was taken at f/11, 1/6sec, ISO-100, 60mm focal length, Aperture Priority program.
Ingredients: sliced crab apples, chili peppers, garlic cove, brown sugar, fish sauce, shrimp paste.
My second sister made a dessert to cool things down. The corn was from my dad’s garden. This was taken at f/8, 1/15sec, ISO-100, 67mm focal length, Aperture Priority program.
