Would you like your Pad Thai cooked by Lord Carlos,or F.Lo?

Your favourite tennis players taking Thai cooking lessons. That's great publicity for Thailand and Thai cuisine. Actually, you can get decent food at any hour of the day or night in Bangkok, so you don't have to resort to Mc Donald, like poor Ferrer had to endure in NYC.

Tennis stars take Thai cooking lessons
By Bill Scott
Bangkok (dpa) - Spaniards Carlos Moya and Feliciano Lopez got a hands-on feel for the world-famed Thai kitchen on Monday, supervised by a chef as they helped to produce a Pad Thai noodle dish on a day off at the Thailand Open.

Fifth seed Moya and his friend F-Lo, had it all to learn as they got stuck in under tight supervision from a knowing, white-hatted expert.

The apron-clad players each fronted up at a wok with the expert placed in between to show them the way to throw it all together.

While their culinary skills may not rival their racket handling, the pair were able to tuck into their home-made production before heading off to the Impact arena for training on the day before the start of the event.

The tournament has opted for a Tuesday kickoff to allow the majority of the seeds to arrive from Europe after weekend Davis Cup matches.

Moya is playing in Bangkok for the first time since his 2003 quarter-finals and begins against German Benjamin Becker in the first round. Lopez, the number 48, has an opener against towering Croatian seventh seed Ivo Karlovic.

Officials were braced for VIP arrivals early Tuesday morning, headed by top seed Novak Djokovic.

The world number three and US Open finalist was arriving from Belgrade where he led Serbia into the Davis Cup World Group for the first time with a 4-1 crushing of Australia.

American Andy Roddick, 2004 Bangkok runner-up to Roger Federer, was coming from Sweden after helping the US into the December final against Russia.

Third seed Tomas Berdych and number four Tommy Haas also played Davis Cup, and officials said on Monday that Germany's Haas had recovered from the illness which kept him from Sunday's reverse singles in the semi-final loss to Russia.

World number two Rafael Nadal withdrew at the weekend, blaming the left knee tendinitis which has bothered him for more than a month and led to a fourth-round defeat at at the US Open.

Nadal lost to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in New York, who also pulled out of Bangkok. American holder James Blake is also missing and will not defend his 2006 title.

Thailand's Danai Udomchoke heads the local challenge.

Former top Thai Paradorn Srichaphan, currently 155th due to a wrist injury,has been helping with public relations duties at his home event but has not played an ATP match in six months.

F-Lo has a lot of time to practice his cooking now after he got his ass handed to him by Karlovic

Cooking? No, I can do that myself. I can think of some other tasks for him to perform though.

And to think I was just about to send you a pm, asking you how you were feeling today? Now I know.

As for the question- if Flopez is at the helm of cooking something, I'd prefer to go hungry, thank you.

If their results today are any indication - neither.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Don't worry, I haven't lost my pervy side. I am just so busy with work these days that I don't have time to make any worthy contributions to the perv thread . Let's say I am on sabbatical for a while...

Re: Would you like your Pad Thai cooked by Lord Carlos,or F.Lo?

If you do like pad thai , I recommend you try it with "wun sen" noodles. Wun sen* noodles are made from mung bean, and are much lighter than the regular noodles. For me they are much tastier. Check your local Thai or Chinese store for wun sen noodles. I don't know what they call them in Chinese but in Thai it's wun sen.

* my Thai- English dictionary translates "wun sen" to vermicelli

Vermicelli refers more to the shape of noodle, not what the noodle is made of.

In North America, vermicelli usually refers to fresh rice noodles used in Vietnamese restaurants.

I thought so too. In the Arab countries it refers to the very thin transparent noodles made from rice or flour. Wun sen is distinct. I guess for a want of better word they translate it as vermicelli. Would Chinese speakers, please enlighten me, what do you call it in Chinese (putong hua or Cantonese)?

In Cantonese, it's "fun see". "fun" means rice noodle and "see" means silky thread.

Thanks for Lee for the info. But does "fun see" also cover noodles made of mung beans? I know mung bean noodles are used in Chinese food, because here in Saudi Arabia, supermarkets stock these noodles either from Taiwan or Thailand. In Filipino they are known as "sotanghon".
I suspect Thai word wun sen comes from a Chinese dialect. A lot of the Chinese food words have gone into Thai and were Thaiised.
