Carving out a nice niche for himself in Bangkok ...

This sculpture was so heavy it tipped the Mistral upside down.
Most boys want to be firemen when they grow up. Some want to be pilots. Some never grow up and just become travel writers (hey, hold it, buddy, I resemble that remark ...)

Khun Duangdee is a chocolate carver.

That's right, I'll say it again, just a little bit slower this time ...

C-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e  c-a-r-v-e-r, jing jing.

If you find that hard to swallow, the evidence is there every day proudly on display in Mistral, the Sofitel Silom Bangkok's all day dining area. He's even won awards for his artistry in China. Sweet!

But then in the afternoon, he changes gear. To ice carving. His work melts the hearts of those enjoying the contemporary Mediterranean buffet.
