Thai Cooking Class
This morning some lucky members enjoyed a cooking class at 'Jimmy's Kitchen'. Guiding us around her garden, Jimmy introduced many different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Silk Weaving Tour
This morning, led by SILC’s own Bangkok guru and guide, Jimmy, a small but adventurous group of ladies explored the silk weaving village of Baan Krua Nua. It was so interesting seeing the whole process of silk making from the silk worm cocoon through to the finished length of silk.
