All the necessary condiments to adjust the flavor of your food. (clockwise from top left) Chili pepper flakes to add spicy kick, chili peppers in rice vinegar, sugar for sweetness, and nampla fish sauce.

Thai iced tea. It was so hot the whole time I was in Thailand. I couldn't imagine having hot tea. While walking around, I kept popping into 7-elevens to get water. I tried the green tea and was amazed at how sweet it is! In Japan, putting sugar in green tea is a big no-no.
