We’re thinking Thai… Here’s why…

Four of SA’s Twitterati. Four Thai banquets. One chance to win a trip to Thailand.

It’s not every day you get a chance to win a trip overseas and in a first for the SA blogging scene, Simply Asia has been showing true Thai hospitality and put all the power in the hands of the bloggers you love. All they needed to do was interpret a Thai banquet in their own unique style and they could be jetting off to Thailand, to experience the true inspiration of Simply Asia.

Each blogger documented their entire journey, from conceptualising their evening all the way through to setting up, choosing the venue, deciding on the guests and, with a bit of luck, the morning after as well! The shleb that thought out of the noodle-box and wowed us with their personal interpretation of Think Thai won the trip for themselves and a ‘plus one’. Read about what went down below.

But before we catch you crying into your Pad Thai, that’s not the end of the story! As the audience, not only can you influence the outcome of the competition (by visiting your favourite blogger’s site and helping to create buzz around their banquet), you can win a trip to Thailand for yourself too!

All you need to do is order one main meal from Simply Asia, fill out a form and put it in the box and you and a friend could be on your way to Thailand. This could be the easiest overseas trip you’ve ever organised in your life!

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to Think Thai and you know why!

He’s the creative force behind Retroviral, one of South Africa’s leading alternative digital communications agencies. He’s sharp as a drawing pin and just about as sore to sit on. Would you like Rockstar Mike to be our winner? Check out his blog here.

She’s stylish, she’s always on trend and she’s a well-respected style icon in South Africa. Her daily outfit pics are an online institution. Do you think she has what it takes to win a trip to Thailand? Check out her blog here.

A Cape Town boy through and through with a ‘never say die’ attitude and the ability to out-party Ozzy Osbourne. He’s witty, he’s funny and he’s intelligent – could he be our winner? Check out his blog here.

One of the funniest ladies in South Africa – her infectious energy, sparkling sense of humour and positive attitude could be just what she needs to be sent to Thailand. Does she deserve it? Check out her blog here.

It’s time to think Simply Asia.
