非常搞鬼幽默的曼谷餐廳 連Lonely Planet 都讚好

May 22, 2011
 
泰國曼谷一間餐廳Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant在曼谷以至國際社會都很富話題性。 權威旅遊指南Lonely Planet甚至選出到這家餐廳為曼谷必做的事!
 
泰國色情事業相當發達,不過曾幾何時公眾對安全性行為的意識並不高。Cabbages and Condoms別開生面,兼作性教育課室,以有趣活潑的方式鼓勵使用安全套,餐廳中有很多以多個色彩繽紛的安全套製成的裝置藝術,過去曾有安全套超人和安全套聖誕老人,去年高爾夫球手活士被揭發有婚外情時,餐廳就製作了活士的安全套立體人像。餐廳還展示從世界各地搜羅、設計奇特的安全套。吃完美味的泰菜,付款時會獲得一個免費安全套。餐廳收益都撥歸作家庭計劃教育經費。
 
創辦人Mechai Viravaidya被譽為泰國”安全套之王”。他點子多多,曾舉辦安全套接力賽、吹漲安全套比賽,又想出請僧人用聖水潔淨避孕藥,令公眾更願使用,甚至請曼谷警察向塞車中的司機派發安全套。由1991至2003年間,愛滋病感染數字下跌了九成,即是說770萬個人命獲救。1974年每個家庭平均生7個孩子,但Mechai 的性教育工作開展後,數字下跌至平均每家只有1.5個孩子。
 
原來食也可帶來美好的改變!

In Bangkok, there’s a cool restaurant called Cabbages and Condoms that promotes the use of condom and contraceptives in an amusing way.   There’re art installations made by colourful condoms and a wide collection of perculiarly-designed condoms from all over the world.  Last year, following the scandal about Tiger Woods, a statue of him was made to promote safe sex. On a list by Lonely Planet, it ranks number one as a must-do thing in Bangkok. 
 
Founder of the Restaurant Mechai Viravaidya is named “Condom King” in Thailand.  He never runs out of cool ideas: condom relay, condom-blowing contests, and he even invited monks to bless contraceptives, so that public members would be more willing to use them.  During traffic jam, cops would hand out free condoms to drivers.  He told CNNgo, “from 1991 to 2003, new cases of HIV/AIDS in Thailand declined by 90 percent. That translates into 7.7 million lives saves.”
 
Eating also brings changes.
