Do you think the frying pan is big enough?
Last May, schoolchildren and their families in the Chiang Rai were surprised and frightened by a powerful earthquake. This was followed by hundreds of aftershocks.
Today, many of the same children had a much happier time. They were invited to Phra Maha Vuthichai Vachiramethi's Meditation Centre at Huay Sak in Muang district for a special event.
Macaroni, macaroni, macaroni – plus meatballs and tomato sauce.
They arrived a bit cold and very hungry – which was good. That is because many chefs were there from some of Bangkok's best hotels to give them a special meal.
The chefs worked together using a four-metre wide frying pan to make macaroni mixed with pork meatballs and tomato sauce.
It was delicious.
