We went out exploring a recently opened place on Samoeng road (Hang Don side) called Larb &Jazz (good food, good jazz, cold vibe though) and to keep up with jazz music we landed to the notorious North Gate. Was fun. A lot.

YE who are kicking against Fate,

Tell me how it is that on this hill-side,

Running down to the river,

Which fronts the sun and the south-wind,

This plant draws from the air and soil

Poison and becomes poison ivy?

And this plant draws from the same air and soil

Sweet elixirs and colors and becomes arbutus?

And both flourish?

You may blame Spoon River for what it is,

But whom do you blame for the will in you

That feeds itself and makes you dock-weed,

Jimpson, dandelion or mullen

And which can never use any soil or air

So as to make you jessamine or wistaria?
