Mango festival 2018

Post by trubrit » February 2, 2018, 10:00 am

Soon coming up the traditional yearly Nong Wai Red Cross mango festival,It's being held on the !st-3rd March at the Amphur Nong Wai grounds as usual. This year nightly entertainment over the three days includes on the first night a junior talent competition, get your offspring in , they may be the future star that will keep you in your retirement, who knows?
The second night is the hugely popular Miss Mango contest where age is no limit, just over 16 thats all .This is accompanied by the VIP dinner which guarantees you a prime view of the lovelies, just book a table for 10 in advance , a great social occassion and chance to get to know other locals .The third night is Mor Lam night a popular group has been booked, goes on till early next day, so no sleep for me that night
All this is accompanied by over 100 sales and trade stalls selling everything from cars to candy, plus of course lots of individual traders with the usual vast selection of mangos of all sizes and varieties at reasonable prices.
No mention about the Mango fair would be complete without the huge Red Cross stand , with it's multitude of prizes where eveyone is a winner .
Make a note in your diary and come along for a good day or evening out and contibute to the Red Cross at the same time. See you there .
Need more details pop in to the Red Cross office located on the ground floor in Amphur or pm me, I will try and help .

Tops in Nong Wai

Post by trubrit » February 2, 2018, 10:13 am

Sad to say although not surprised the Tops Superkoom store in Nong Wai is closing permanently at the end of this month. It never looked to be a success as it was just another mum and Pops style establishment, over crowded with the same stuff all the other village shops were selling, on the other hand the Tesco branch here seems to be doing reasonably well .

The ones she got were seedless and he reckons to be selling them at 120bht green , 150bht kg black .

Do you have a location, address, village or directions ? They certainly look pretty good.

Just a heads up, starts today with the official opening at 10am by the Udon Governor and his wife .
Might add there are a lot of plant and tree sellers this year located both sides of the main road for the duration of the mango fair .

A few visiting guests including the governor and his wife at the red cross tent trying their luck but just like me only got the consolation prize .However in the first few hours a fridge , three bikes and a lot of minor domestic appliances were won .

The benefit of country living .

Post by trubrit » March 7, 2018, 6:16 pm

One of my special joys of living out here in Nong Wai is the abundance of fresh crops, in this case fruits in my garden .
This is especially so at this time of the year, these photos were taken this morning.
DSCN3150.jpg
Delicious mulberries, high in vitaminn C.
DSCN3151.jpg
Pomelo, a nice breakfast fruit.
DSCN3152.jpg
Jack fruit, nearly ready to eat with both the flesh and the stones edible .
DSCN3153.jpg
Some more for the future
DSCN3154.jpg
Coconuts a delicious drink and tasty flesh.
DSCN3155.jpg
Limes for the occassional G&t and on pancakes.
DSCN3156.jpg
The list wouldn't be complete without the tasty papaya.
Of course bananas by the ton, big ones and little ones, always a tasty addition with ice cream or custard and the surplus being made into banana bread for freezing .
All at no cost after initial planting, you can't get better than that, fresh and free. .

Nows a good time to start with the rainy season soon upon us, don't leave it too long or you will have problems cultivating new plants .
On Non Wau Sor news topic, interesting to see the mango fair pictures have been viewed over 300 times and my garden topic over 150 but only one comment has been posted for both .Am I to assume that there isn't really an interest in what happens out here, be honest I won't cry :-" But I will just stop wasting my time if folks aren't interested.
