They call me ‘Auntie Ya Kanom Jeeb’ around here. I’ve been selling Kanom Jeeb (dumplings) since 2014, so it’s been a while. After I finish making them in the morning, I start pushing my cart from my home near Victory Monument all the way here. I get to Ari between 5 and 6 o’clock, that’s when I start heading back and that’s my day. Ari people are lovely, they give me compliments if they like my dumplings. It’s hard to make ends meet these days, but we keep trying! I try to sell everything I have brought with me – unless it rains, ugh.
(If you love kanom jeeb – her dumplings are hard to beat!)
