Book launch celebration in Monte da Palhagueira

Author Liz Chalmers presents ‘Khao Phat for Lunch’

At the end of July, residents of Monte da Palhagueira retirement village in Gorjões, Santa Bárbara de Nexe, joined author Liz Chalmers and her husband for a champagne and cake celebration on the launching of her first book.

The book charts the experiences and difficulties the author encountered in the first year of living in a strange country.

The title Khao Phat for Lunch is explained as being the staple dish in the central plains of Thailand of fried rice and the book continues to charter the difficulties encountered when immersed in the cultures and strange customs of the country.

The book is available from most bookshops in the UK, on The Book Guild UK, Amazon and the Book Depository websites. FNAC at MAR Shopping will obtain copies upon request and an E-book version is about to be launched.
