Did you know that some rubber products are made from trees? The sap from a rubber tree acts like rubber. We rented a car and drove around Koh Lanta, along the way we saw rubber trees. We stopped the car to have a look and we saw the rubber all right. – Isaac
Previously I had seen trees with white sap in cups and as I read my science textbook a few days ago, I realized it was rubber trees. I confirmed that by touching the white sap which was stiff like silly putty. – Alexandra
Today we went on a ferry to Phi Phi Island. We went to a beach and the water felt like hot tub water. We hiked up to the island view point. On the way up we saw a black worm. We called it the hammer-head worm. Once we got to the viewpoint I thought it was a spectacular sight. You can look and find out where the tsunami hit. – Isaac
I went to Ya’s Thai Cookery School. I learned so many tips on Thai cooking and new great recipes also. Ya’s favourite saying and tip was “bang,bang,chop,chop,yummm!!” It means that you whack out the flavour of lemongrass of galangal, then chop it up. This releases the flavour in the cooking. Ya has cooked at very high levels and is a great teacher!
