Members of the VFW post in Udon made a small donation to a school about 20km outside of Udon today....100 students/8 teachers/most all farming families.
The signs around the school caught my attention......the photo shows some of them. More opportunities to practice your Thai/English when out and about.

A few weeks ago while in Tesco, my wife watched as one of the workers prepared a fresh batch of yakisoba and packaged it for sale. The worker used packages of MaMa noodles (without the seasoning), as that seems to be a favorite with many of the younger generation.
A few days later, in Villa, she noticed packages of 'Japanese' noodles and decided to make her own yakisoba.....not much pork, but lots of veggies. It was very delicious. She's made the yakisoba on several occasions.....the leftovers keep well in the fridge....heated up they taste as good as fresh off the stove.
Yakking yakisoba over our morning coffee about the difference between the MaMa and the Japanese noodles.....I compared: MaMa made with 20% palm oil......with total fat (ไข่มันทั้งหมด) at 20% and saturated fat (ไข่มันอิ่มตัว) at 30% of recommended daily intake. The Japanese type, no palm oil, no saturated fat and only 2% of recommended daily total fat.
A pack of Mama (one serving)....about 4-5 Baht. The Japanese style.....4 full servings (equal to 4 Mama) for 25 Baht.
You could probably decipher much of the above without being able to read Thai.....but it becomes much easier to understand if you can make out key words. Healthy reason #2598

For a fair amount of time, early on in my reading Thai lessons, I thought some guy/gal named Jay had a franchise of restaurants around town.
Then I learned better:

'tis the season for vegetarians

That's probably one of the first Thai words and pieces of Thai script that vegetarians learn.

As you exit Lotus (ring road near the airport), you turn left onto the ring road (divided highway). You look right for oncoming traffic. There's a sign next to the Lotus sign that makes for a good reason #3002 to learn a bit of Thai.

danger, vehicles driving against traffic rawang, rot yawn sawn... Which is why when pulling onto any road you'd do well to look both ways three times!! and use those mirrors to catch the idiots who think you're not moving fast enough and decide to pass you on the left to enter the highway...(motorcycles mostly...)

That sign could just as easily translate to "look both ways three times!!" t.i.t.
