One thing I really like about people is their care for detail, that little extra that makes everything perfect. By the book, Thais are Buddhists, but really everything is a mixture of all that is Asia, Buddhists temples covering Hindu Gods are guarded by Chinese Lions.
So, back to the detail, every morning the Thais offer food to the house spirits. These houses are usually placed outside and elevated to about 1 metre high. The food is offered in the morning and placed in the spirit house together with the burning incense.
It’s quite candid when you see that the spirit gets a four course meal, dessert included and a Pepsi, and the Pepsi bottle ALWAYS has a straw.
Just had a meal at a veggie restaurant in downtown Bangkok and was peaking at the Hindu gods sipping Fanta on the shelf.
