    The population here is mostly Hispanic, Chinese, and Veitnamese. Thanks for the great links on "Kuan Im". I hope to query the Monk on how this statue came to be here.

    I'm interested in the architecture, and wonder if it was designed by someone in Thailand, or perhaps a Thai living in California? And were some of the materials shipped over?

    I think it's great that people are so dedicated and the community is so supportive.

    Re: Sunday at Wat Buddahanusorn

    I visited yesterday to pick up some treats before visiting my Dad. I had to drive for 45 minutes after getting the food, so it wasn't in peak condition, but still good. The grilled pork was especially excellent, and the grilled chicken had excellent flavor; both came with bundles of sticky rice. The som tum (without optional crab) was very good. Hor mok (fish mousse) had been made ahead and refrigerated, but it reheated fairly well. Tasty stuffed tapioca balls were displayed with the desserts; I missed the garlic oil (I suppose I could make my own garlic oil). Mango sticky rice was as expected.

    Not everything was as perfect as it could have been. The banana sticky rice snack (with black beans) featured a skinny yellow banana; I prefer apple bananas, but I know they aren't easily accessible here. Unfortunately, the khanom krok station had some problems with the griddles not heating up evenly and the batter being a little lumpy.

    Definitely worth another visit. The current hours are Sunday 10am-2pm. There was a huge waiting list for Pad Thai, so I'll have to try that next time.

    I was surprised I didn't find any fried chicken. Might have to go back to Wat Buddhapradeep in San Bruno for that (haven't been for a couple of years now).

    Yes, I went to the temple the last two Sundays but it was raining.

    The attendance was light but the waiting list for the delicious Pad Thai was short. The monks were busy chanting so I was not able to get info on the Kuan Yin statue. There is a plaque that I am certain tells of its origins but I will need to do some work to decipher the Thai characters.

    More to come

    So next time you go just take a Photo of the Plaque and Post it here, we can help to translate it.
