7th Health, Cuisine & Beauty Festival, July 6-10, 2011, at QSNCC
I went to Queen Sirikit National Convention Center today (July 6) specifically to see the ASEAN Heritage 2011 exhibition, but while there I saw the 7th Health, Cuisine & Beauty Festival attracting a lot of attendees, so I went to that show as well.
This fair covered two big exhibition halls. The five categories of exhibitors were: Fashion & Jewelry, Health, Beauty, Cuisine, and Milk Lovers.
I first found myself in the Milk Lovers section. There were 37 companies promoting their milk products, and most of them were offering samples of their milk in little plastic cups. I agreed to try several of them. In fact, I like milk very much, but none of the samples particularly stood out to me.
The most interesting brand was Murrah Farm: “The first and only dairy buffalo farm in Thailand,” according to their brochure. The farm is located in Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok. The brochure featured a chart comparing water buffalo milk with the milk of cows, goats and sheep. There were seven categories of comparison – protein, calcium, cholesterol, carbohydrates, energy, water and fat – and in each category the buffalo milk was shown superior.
Products in the Fashion & Jewelry section included costume jewelry, sunglasses, and women’s clothes and shoes.
In the Health and Beauty sections, some of the services and products included were a holistic hair spa, liposuction clinic, chiropractic clinics, health resorts, exercise machines, vitamins, fish oil capsules, eucalyptus balm, and cosmetics.
The Dspine Chiropractic Clinic had a couple of their chiropractors offering visitors a free chiropractic examination. As I am a believer in chiropractic treatment, I accepted their offer and was examined by one of the chiropractors. He had a sheet of paper with a diagram of a spine showing all the nerve points, and he marked six points where I needed chiropractic adjustment. Dspine has three clinics, two of which are convenient to my home; however, I declined to make an appointment because I will be going back to the U.S.A. to visit my family in August, so I will see my long-time chiropractor then.
In the Cuisine section, there was quite a variety of food products, including many which were being offered as samples. There were several natural fruit drinks, plus a warm, milky-looking drink that I was told protected against Alzheimer’s, and a sort of sweetish yogurt drink which was described as being “for brain.” There were fresh cakes and sandwiches, plus dried pork, frozen food and canned food, and many other edible products.
A person who had interest in one of more of the product categories would be pleased with this show.
