Hi! My name is Mon. I was born in the South of Thailand, close to the border of Malaysia. When I was little, my mom and dad often had to go to work the rice fields and I had to take care of my little sister and make sure my parents could have dinner after a long day of work. That is how I discovered my passion for cooking. Although it was my task, something I had to do, I didn't mind it at all. I started cooking just by watching my mom from a very young age, and when I was old enough, about 8 years old, I started doing the same.
Besides cooking, I also loved to travel, meet new people and learn English. When I was about 22, I managed to get a job with an international company. For more than 10 years I traveled around the world, met many people and learn lots of English. I came to Koh Lanta the first time just like most tourists and fell in love with the island. While still working and traveling lots for the international company, I gradually started longing for a more simple life style again in my home country and with my family. I was dreaming of my own cooking school. It took a few years but eventually I managed to make a dream come true!
