Chef Nuit is always so excited to add to her knowledge whenever she can. Being in Thailand, was a perfect opportunity to do this. In Pai, she sought an experience that she could not get anywhere else. She found a woman and her husband that had mastered 3 delicious desserts that are only found in this province. They use the original “Shan” style and a recipe that was passed down from her mother. A recipe that is known as the best in the province. It was so humbling to witness this. And chef Nuit was so honoured to learn!

ALL ROADS LEAD TO PAI:
So we were all set to go to the beach but a call for a storm is delaying our trip for a week. So... we decided to go back to Pai! Which pretty much sums up my years of travelling. By the end of my 4 years in the Philippines I really developed that backpacking bug. I had plans to go all over the world. First Thailand, then India, then Africa, Egypt, Jamaica, Spain... the list went on and on. But then I found Pai and met the love of my life. Every trip after that went straight to Thailand and straight to Pai.
The first time I left Pai I was supposed to spend a few weeks in Laos. I cut that to 1 week so I could come right back to Nuit. Then came the time when I was supposed to leave Thailand for good. I went to the Philippines just to grab my stuff before going back to Toronto. I’d only known Nuit for a fairly short period of time so I wasn’t actually sure what the next steps were going to be. Was I ever going to see Nuit or Pai again? I didn’t know. But when I came back to my home in the Philippines, fate was waiting for me. My roommate Tony had a new girlfriend, Happee. We all went out for dinner and I told them about how I met this amazing girl and how I didn’t know if I was ever going to see her again. Then Happee says “I have a business in Bangkok. I get a trip to Thailand once a month. I’m not going this month, you can have my ticket.” I couldn’t believe it! What are the chances? I just met this girl an hour ago and now she’s offering me a ticket to Thailand. I said yes of course! I didn’t have much money left but I knew that fate was just screaming at me. Happee called me the next day and booked the flight. What an angel she was for us
A week later I was back in Pai with Nuit 🙋🏻♀️⛰❤️❤️❤️ #fate #destiny #allroadsleadtopai #paithailand #paitorontostory #therestishistory #lovelovelove❤️ @djtonytoni @happeehour @chefnuitregular
