During February 2011 I am doing a Thai Dessert Challenge on Twitter where I have to eat a different Thai dessert every day this month. I know that sounds easy, but Thai desserts, although delicious, are also very sweet. I guess the challenge is not to put on any weight. Unfortunately, judging by the results of the first week, I am failing miserably. But, I have had some delicious desserts so far.

I will post more pictures of Thai Desserts here next week. Or  you can follow me on Twitter @EnjoyThaiFood where I post daily food pictures. In March I am planning on doing the Thai Street Food Challenge II where I have to eat a different street food meal for every meal for one month.
