To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

Los Cabos Mexican Restaurant in Bangkok

We went to Los Cobos last night  with bunch of friends for dinner. Indeed, it was a remarkable meal the restaurant has a devouring Fiesta Feast Platter which in fact, we ended getting our second serve.

The place is very accessible to BTS with just a few steps to be exact though it isn't really that easily seen from the (soi) street as there's this typical restaurant that faces right across the intersection. Well, the restaurant is on the opposite side.

The ambiance is good, it seems like the diner is in an old house which the restaurant really is. Its design is of a typical restaurant near the port or seashore as what is commonly seen in Mexico I supposed. We chose the table at the balcony, thought it was nice to get some fresh air. It wasn't that scenic though as the restaurant is surrounded by different apartment buildings and condos. Apparently one can see more balconies from afar.

I love the food, the meat was superb as it's really tasty which one can't just get anywhere else I think. We also had their margaritas as one of their prides and of course, the tacos and salsa.

It was a night of fun and laughter as well as satisfyinging our palates. Los Cobos is highly recommended for meat lovers as the price is really inexpensive. Anyone who is near Asoke or has the easy access to BTS Skytrain can for sure drop by and try what the restaurant can offer.
