Fire is all around you in a kicthen and after a few years of cooking you start to feel comfortable with being constantly burnt in your work space.
When something catches on fire in a kitchen most of the time you are pretty nonchalant about it.
Today we had a refresher course on fire safety at the work place. "Thai style" of course, which usually means a ton of fun.
I think from the photos below it is easy to work out who are the cooks. Who seem to have a "thing" for fire and have seen many a young apprentice chef throw water into a wok filled with burning oil.
And those who are office workers who wish that they really didn't have to work around people who like to set things on fire.
Thanks to the Bangkok Fire Department for an entertaing few hours.
They seemed to enjoy themselves too. Once the realized that they had met a group of people who love fire nearly as much as they do.
I can't say I learnt much other than you can actually light a gas tank directly, which seems like fun.
