BANGKOK, July 16 (The Nation Thailand/ANN): Thai K-pop superstar Lalisa “Lisa” Manoban had something sweet to offer to her 80 million Instagram followers – “stories” about Thai desserts.

On Saturday, the Blackpink band member posted one reel titled “Thai desserts” displaying traditional delicacies like “luk chup” and steamed banana cakes and another of her rolling a roti with cotton candy with the caption “sai mai (cotton candy)”.

This cotton candy dessert, featuring an adapted version of the Indian roti, is a special delicacy in Ayutthaya province. Lots of well-known “sai mai” vendors can be spotted near the Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Hospital.

Many fans are curious if Lisa’s stories will spark a Thai dessert fever, much like the craze for meatballs after she spoke about her favourite meatball vendor in Buri Ram in a television interview last year.

Meanwhile, Bangkok governor Chadchart Sittipunt has asked city residents to wear face masks in public to help boost the confidence of foreign visitors. He said tourists were now returning to the capital in great numbers.

Chadchart was at Lumphini Park on Saturday to meet a group of about 200 tourists who were on a cycling trip around the city.

On Friday, he was told that more than 3,000 people from 45 countries are taking part in the World RoboCup 2022 contest at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Bitec) this week.

“That means foreigners are becoming more confident about Thailand after the country’s reopening,” the governor said. He also cited reports that hotel occupancy is rising, adding the flow of tourists would swell during the high season later this year.

“I ask you to be good hosts in welcoming tourists and helping to prevent Covid from spreading by taking precautionary measures,” he said.

“Wear face masks when around others to rebuild tourists’ confidence.”

The governor also pointed to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s policy to improve the quality of life for all people in the city.

“When Bangkok is liveable, tourists will also want to stay here,” he said. - The Nation Thailand/ANN
