I got this one during my trip to Thailand. I was absolutely stoked to find out there was a 7-11 right next to the Chatrium hotel in Bangkok! To many, this will be a ‘so what?’ but to me, visiting Asian 7-11 stores have been something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time.
You might say it looks like the ones we have here in the US, just with some Thai on the door, right?
Ah – a little different! This is right across from the Slurpee machine! How awesome is that? I think in the local 7-11 here there might be 3 or 4 instant noodles in the whole store. Anyways, one this that’s pretty awesome about this cup is that I got it home at all. Pork, chicken and beef isn’t usually let through customs – but they waved me through so I didn’t hassle them. In fact, it was the easiest re-entry ever coming home which rocked – I weas really tired! Let’s have a look at this popular minced pork cup from MAMA!
