Asher’s Favorites (Webtoons Edition Part 2)

Hello everyone, and welcome to part 2 of my Webtoons recommendations. I really enjoyed doing the first part, and I hope that some of you checked them out. Now, let’s start part 2!

  • Carl by Hussein Traboulsi Genres: Comedy, Science Fiction, Heartwarming, Steampunk  Started: November 5th, 2017 Total Episodes: 77 Updates every Monday and Tuesday 

Carl is a very fascinating comic that I fell in love with right away. It’s about a robot psychiatrist that becomes sentient, and tries to help people out by expressing his feelings. His creator is worried about this, and tries to keep it under wraps. Unfortunately, his arch enemy finds out, and you are taken on a comedic adventure with robots, augmented humans, and crazy characters. I highly recommend this comic to everybody, and the characters will keep you reading to the end. Final Verdict 9/10 (A robotic hell of a good time!)

  • Boyfriend of the Dead by Ushio Genres: Comedy, Romance, Action, Zombies, Apocalyptic  Started: July 13th, 2017 Total Episodes: 105 Updates Every Tuesday and Friday

This is a fantastic and comedic take on the Zombie Horror genre. The world is ending, and zombies are everywhere. However, unlike other zombie stories, these creatures have kept their intelligence. Unfortunately, every time they speak, it comes out in growls. The comic focuses on one zombie that finds a girl surviving in the chaotic climate. We are then met with an amazing adventure of comedic proportions as the zombie tries to communicate and befriend the girl. If you love comedy, I guarantee that you’ll love this story. Final Verdict 9.9/10 (My first experience with webtoons and an amazing one at that!)

 

 

 

  • Sweet Home by Youngchan Hwang and Carnby Kim Genres: Horror, Tragedy, Mature, Despair, Psychological, Monsters  Started: January 14th, 2018 Total Episodes: 37 Updates Every Monday

Here we have an absolutely terrifying tale from the creators of Bastard. This comic is highly disturbing, and therefore recommended for mature audiences only. It’s about an anti-social high school student that has to move houses due to spoiler-heavy circumstances. Not only is this one of the best stories I’ve read in a while, but, it also is one of the best drawn. Final Verdict 10/10 (A goddamn horror masterpiece!)

Asher’s Food Adventures In Thailand Part 1 (Nakhon Pathon Market)

Hello everyone, and welcome to my 200 follower special! I promised you something amazing, and boy am I excited! Four weeks ago, I traveled to Thailand to visit my Stepmom’s family. I also went to China for about five days. I had the most amazing time in Asia, and will be discussing my experiences in both places in this multi-part series. I hope you guys will enjoy this as much as I enjoy writing it. Now, let’s go on an amazing adventure together. It’s time for part one, Nakhon Pathon Market.

The Nakhon Pathon Market is a floating marketplace that’s located in the Sam Phran Province of Thailand. I found things that I’ve never seen before, and it was incredible. I will be showing the pictures I took there, as well as a brief description of each one. It was truly an unforgettable experience, and I’m so glad that I’m able to share it with you guys, Now, without any further ado, let’s get started!

Cactus.jpg

(This is what I believe to be a custard apple. The Thai custard apple is known as Noi na, which means hand grenade. It supposedly tastes extremely sweet, and is filled with many seeds.)

 

Pandam cake.jpg

( This is a beautiful Thai dessert that’s known as Khanom Chan. Khanom Chan is a special 9-layer cake that’s made with coconut milk, pandan juice, Mung bean flour, sugar, tapioca flour, rice flour, and talcum flour.)

 

Dried Fruit.jpg

(This was a very neat dried fruit counter. It had dried mangosteen, muscat, jackfruit, durian, and bananas.)

 

Fishy.jpg

(Fish were a big part of the marketplace, and you could smell them from miles away. They sold everything, from fish heads, to tiny fish eggs.)

Sweets

(This lovely counter had some strange looking fried food, as well as one of my favorite Thai desserts, Pang Chi. Pang Chi is a sweet Thai pancake that’s made with taro, coconut milk, corn, palm sugar, and rice flour.)

 

Peanut Cookies.jpg

(These are delicious peanut cookies. It’s like a peanut brittle on steroids.)

Chicken Hell.jpg

(This is a rather unsettling picture of some headless fowl. I find the bright red bird extremely fascinating. The unique aroma of spices and onions filled the air when I passed this counter.)

 

Cute Ducks

(Over in this corner, we have some candied rambutan, as well as some adorable sweets in the shape of rubber ducks.)

Crab.jpg

(This final picture is of another seafood counter with delicious looking crab. Since the market is on the water, the crustaceans are extremely fresh.)

I hope you guys enjoyed the first part of my Thailand adventure. I would love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.
