      @World-Traveler, Thai and Filipino style of cooking is almost similar.. But you're lucky to have a friend who cooks well. Thanks for dropping by.

      I spent five years living in and teaching English in Thailand. My very good friend Dang made delicious prawn dinners Thai style. Her cooking was excellent!

      I can't eat shrimp, but I think this would do well with torn pieces of grilled chicken.Looks delicious!
