I'm a big fan of Khao Soi, but I always thought that it was a curry not a soup?

Yeah, I think most people would think of it as noodles with some thin curry, not as a soup.

Maybe Milli could eat some during her next performance? That would boost domestic sales for around a week as "Netizens go crazy for Khao Soi".

 

Of course, this "soft power" won't extend beyond Thailand's borders. Never does.

Most of Khao Soi is badly prepared with condensed milk instead of coconut milk, heaps of sugar and non filtered water.

When Khao Soi is cooked properly it kan be heavenly good.

At this event, Minister of Digital Economy and Society Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn led Thailand Post executives to meet with Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha.

Over a Thai dish?

Technically, noodles can be soup and soup can be curried. 

Maybe.

Just because S. Korea used K-POP, Korean Dramas, Samsung Phones etc etc as it’s “Soft Power” does not mean “lightning will strike twice”.

I love Khao soi, it's just too bad that so many places make <deleted> renditions of it. I'm sure that real Khao soi cooked over a wood fire in the middle of winter would be sublime.

Whether you like it or not, Thailand has tons of soft power. The cuisine is one thing, the people are the other aspect of that immense soft power. No I don't mean the officialdom that seems to do everything in their power to erode that soft power.

But you see, the average tourist deals doesn't deal with the corrupt officials or politicians. They only see the good people of Thailand. The people that carry this nation (against all odds).
