    Conor – thanks for reading and yes, the different textures and colours probably deserve some well crafted words but I though this was easier on the eyes for a Friday morning!

    I see some similarities between the ingredients in Laos and the Philippines. Great photos.

    We love heading to food markets on our trips. I see you guys saw custard apples there – we recently had them for the first time!

    With a special guest appearance by Magenta. Great shots, and I really am glad you're spacing out Laos, because as we get into colder weather and shorter days, I love these vacations by proxy. Oh, and the Foodbuzz rules say we're supposed to just vote once. Darn, I was hoping for an American Idol scenario. Anyway, you've got my vote, of course.

    I always love local markets. The many things sold there always fascinate me as many of them are not found in normal supermarkets. The atmosphere is exciting too.

    Miriam – it was awesome!

    Divina – I would LOVE to visit the Philippines one day!

    High/Low – yes – we wondered what they were for a few days til someone could tell us in English!

    Kablooey – you could always demand a recount! 😉

    5 Star – thanks!

    Mary – I find supermarkets fascinating also!

    I just love the markets. Every country, every state. They all have new things to explore and to taste.

    love the colors and textures, especially the contrast of the bright green and the hot pink in the last photo.
